Hello,

I've got a RadGridView with data successfully bound to it. I need to be able to click on an individual cell and have it read by a screen reader (Job Access With Speech JAWS). When I test the screen reader it successfully reads the cell, but reads it twice. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this. Thus far this is a problem unique to my RadGridView section and nothing else.

 

Thanks

Hello Doug,

We investigated this and it turned out that the narrator behaves differently depending on the operating system and the source collection bound to the control. Reproducing this is quite inconsistent and it can be reproduced on some machines with different set up and on some other machines this cannot be reproduced. Also, this is reproducible with the native MS DataGrid control in some cases. Summarizing this along with the fact that we couldn't narrow down the issue to the RadGridView control our conclusion is that this issue is related to the reader itself.
