Re: [Bulk] Google Chrome


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

OK.
There is an accessibility page, and even a set of screen-reader users "help" instructions that Google furnishes. I can furnish the Web address for anyone really interested. Google doesn't mention which screen-reader allegedly works with Google Docs.
If, however, one attempts the commands that Google suggests, one discovers that they just don't work.
For instance, pressing ESCAPE in a Google Docs document is supposed to turn on the menu options. This just doesn't work.
Because I have a client who insists on using Google Docs, I spent some time researching this.
Freedom Scientific pronounced Google Docs inaccessible and didn't indicate it had any plans to do anything about it. Freedom Scientific blamed Google, as did the other screen reader makers.
I called G.W. Micro (I have an up-to-date version of Window-Eyes). I was told the same thing by a person that I recognize as someone on the help/development team at G.W. Micro.
At Serotech, I was switched over from general customer support to someone identified as a developer, he said that he was aware of no screen reader that works (or even could work) with Google Docs.
So, the message Google was putting out about Google Docs was flatly inconsistent with the story I got from three of the major screen-reader makers.
From that, I've inferred that one cannot accept Google's claims of accessibility at face value.

Not sure I understood what you were trying to say. Are you saying that
Google says it's accessible? With version 12 of JAWS? What does Freedom
Scientific have to say?

on Google's accessibility page, as far as i am not mistaken, from the
version of 2158 of 12, it says that it is supported.

Does this work ok with Jaws 12 (latest update)? As far as everyone knows.
I wondered if I might sort out some of my jaws issues if I tried something
other than IE as my browser. I know firefox 6 has come out today and I
wasn't sure to get that or not because of it being the latest version I
didn't know how stable that would be with jaws either.
Any thoughts on Chrome or Firefox 6 would be appreciated.
Thanks.
Kirsten.
