Re: Scripting Question: Content Not Appearing In Screen Reader View Of Page, But Can Tab To It

Not in this case (nothing is computed as hidden). If I can make a small reproduceable test case, I may have a chromium bug to file.

So additional advice for looking at hidden stuff, whether in devtools or via a screen reader: test multiple engines. When they don't agree with each other, it makes it easier to decide if something's a bug (or, sometimes, not a bug but still an issue of browser engines not agreeing on the same behaviour).
