No, I know this is not so because I always check to see if that is what the site did;

There is no new window opened;

Hang on let me try to duplicate it and I’ll get back to you guys with a site and situation where it occurs on the regular;

 

 

Please advise as you like.

It’s likely, then, that the new page is opening in a new window. JAWS often ()but I think not always) reads a message alerting you.

Speaking of that,

I often encounter sites that “alt+left arrow” doesn’t work at all;

This especially happens in legal research websites such as lexis and westlaw;

When I am in a search results page,

Then open one of the cases in my results,

Then try to alt+left arrow back,

It stays on the page with the case I am reading;

I always wondered how come alt+left arrow doesn’t work at all sometimes;

 

 

Please advise as you like.

Also, if a link does shift you out of the site you were in, all it takes is a click of the Back button in your browser to go straight back to the page you just left, provided you haven't browsed around to multiple pages in the site you were taken to.  Back only works one page at a time, but if you do it immediately after a site shift you go right back to where you were.
