Re: Google Chrome and jaws 14 beta

William Sallander <wsallander@...>

I did manage to download the latest FireFox and it seems to work a little bit better than Chrome when using the beta 14 version of Jaws.
I did notice however that sometimes it will loose focus.
Probably the best thing to do is at least put it in a bug report and see what happens from there.

I can say for sure that chroam uses the firefox scripts etc for jaws
(including the jcf), it's in my config-names.ini and I didn't put it
there. This does tend to make me think that Google at least started
by using some version of the mozilla gecko engine rather than starting
from scratch (gecko is the actual layout/rending system that Firefox
is built around).

while using either Firefox or IE on a 32-bit XP system running JAWS 13, so
I'm not entirely sure what the issue is.

Has anyone out there tried using Google Chrome with the Jaws 14 beta?
I've noticed that when going from one web page to another, I seem to need
refresh the Screen to read the current page.
I also believe this might be happening with Firefox since it is my
understanding that both Chrome and Firefox are built on the Mozilla
I'm using the 64 bit edition of the beta on a vista machine.
