I can't speak to your setup of course, but when I've used it with Firefox I have had a fair amount of success.

Can you share the site you're testing? It may be that things are mislabeled (role="button" and similar issues).

Subject: [WebAIM] why is everything "clickable" in NVDA

I am an NVDA newbie. I am trying to evaluate a web application where I work. Why is it that NVDA (using Chrome) says "clickable" in front of everything it reads whether it is an actionable item (such as a link) or not? It's driving me crazy.
