Word offsets broken if the next word is an embedded object
Str: 1. Use the following code: <body> a <a href="#">b</a> </body> 2. Get the offsets for the word at offset 0; e.g. via IAccessibleText::textAtOffset with IA2_TEXT_BOUNDARY_WORD. Expected: (0, 2) Actual: (2, 2) Same for offset 1. Impact: Among other things, brokenness for screen reader users when using control+backspace in these situations. Symptom originally reported by an NVDA user here: http://community.nvda-project.org/ticket/3621
I get (0, 2) on Nightly. Jamie, can you retest it please and if it doesn't work then provide a test case (simple "data:text/html,a <a href="www">b</a>" works as expected for me)
Wow! I didn't know about data: URLs. You learn something new every day. :) Just tested with latest nightly and I get the same result using an html file. I even pasted: data:text/html,a <a href="www">b</a> into the Address bar and tested with that. I get the same result.
To clarify (since i wasn't clear in my str), I'm doing this on the document accessible.
you're right, I just figured out I tested wrong version. I can reproduce a problem now (In reply to James Teh [:Jamie] from comment #2) > Wow! I didn't know about data: URLs. You learn something new every day. :) yep, it's a nice feature, I just get used to forget it syntax occasionally :)
