Re: Question: NVDA + keyboard behaving weird

When NVDA is running and you're not interacting with forms it sends a
click event instead of a keyboard event.
I don't know exactly how the page is coded to figure out why the two
events activate different links, the second might be nested inside the
first or vice versa.
