I am trying to take my online proctored exam.
It has combo boxes for selecting the microphone.
I am using google chrome and NVDA.
The combo box just says collapsed and expanded it does not let me select any options.
Help me fix this please.

Thumbs up

Try pressing alt down arrow. That should allow you to navigate the list without JavaScript getting in the way. With NVDA, it also has the nice side affect of reading how many items are in the combo box. Could be that there's 0 (no attached or builtin microphone).

Take care,
