Hi Jim,

Noticed similar issue when testing angular webpage using JAWS on Chrome browser.
Although the page refreshed and the previous content was hidden, Screen reader continued to read this content.

However when I tested the same page using Firefox and Jaws, I did not face this issue.

Are you using chrome browser to test?

Madhavi.

Hi Jim--

Can you provide some more info about the purpose of the button and hidden text?

For example, is the purpose of the button to provide additional context to users (like a tool tip)? Or does the button initiate some other action, which causes the content to appear also? What is the purpose of the content?

Mike

Hi,
I have an instance in which a screen reader user can view content that
appears to be off screen to someone who can see the screen.
Specifically, there is a button that causes content to appear and
disappear. The content never disappears to the screen reader. How
should I report on this?

Thanks.

Jim
