Hello dear NVDA developers,
Hope you are doing well!
Wanted to ask about the bug in Chrome, in which the user isn't notified when the page refreshes. Is the bug a com error like this:
DEBUGWARNING - NVDAObjects.IAccessible.IA2TextTextInfo._getFormatFieldAndOffsets (07:10:33.128) - MainThread (18676):
could not get attributes
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "NVDAObjects\IAccessible\__init__.pyc", line 233, in _getFormatFieldAndOffsets
File "comtypes\__init__.pyc", line 857, in __call__
File "comtypesMonkeyPatches.pyc", line 26, in __call__
_ctypes.COMError: (-2147467263, 'Not implemented', (None, None, None, 0, None))
If this is the case, I saw now this bug in Microsoft Teams after I minimize the window and then get back to it. Whatsapp on the desktop has a similar issue, not sure the same underlying error is also present there. I can check if this is interesting.
Now, as I' have heard that Chrome 81 witch addresses this issue won't be released now due to COVID19, and I am also not sure that Electron framework will get the fix, and taking in to account that Electron apps and Chrome is widely used, I wonder if something can be done to ease those issues. I have noticed that Narrator don't have the Teams issue, not sure about the others. I mean to say that it seams that a work around is available? Is that correct?
I am ready to help with code as much as I can.
Waiting for your response!
keep up the excellent work you are doing!
