Long summary

Edge can be used to read ePUB files on Windows with a native program (the web browser) of the operative system), that is, without installing external applications.
Except navigation information, which is available just when tables of contents are used to locate sections or pages in the book, all required features are supported.
For adding notes, it's recommended to ensure that caret browsing is active (press f7 for this).
In browse mode, only screen layout is supported; so, pressing k or NVDA+f7 to open the Elements List dialog could be needed to locate the next link.
Words can be splitted in different lines, and this may produce incorrect pronunciation in certain cases.
Also, when navigating to different chapters in the book, the desired document is focused, but other frames can be presented below. This should be addressed when selecting text; for instance, use shift+down arrow instead of Shift+control+end to select a precisse piece of text.
The table of contents in the book can become unavailable when an internal link has been activated, but the table in the reading system will remain available. Press f6 to switch between the book text and the features of the reading system, such as Hub, table of contents, bookmarks or notes. Escape can be pressed several times to exit and come back to the book text.
