Re: Google chrome and Jaws11


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Good luck.
I could not get Chrome to behave at all. Chrome has its own screen reader called Chrome Vox. You can download and install it.
My view is that it isn't ready for prime time -- or even close -- but it sort of works.
There are some scripts that are supposed to make JAWS work better with Chrome Vox, but they are in beta.
If you need to use Chrome to work, for example, with Google Docs, I would try Chrome Vox and the new scripts. It is all free and can be downloaded at the Google Store or market or whatever it is called.
I just don't think JAWS works with Chrome at all, and given that Google has created its own screen reader, I doubt Freedom Scientific is in any hurry to make JAWS work with Chrome.
You don't see a JAWS for Macintosh. Not much revenue to generate when competing with free.
Would love to be proven wrong here. Last I checked was July.
