Important notice for JAWS 17 beta testers using Windows 10: Microsoft Edge isn't still ready for prime time with JAWS


 

Hi all,

For those testing JAWS 17 public beta: Please note that Microsoft Edge still
isn't usable by JAWS users (please set Internet Explorer or other browser as
the default web browser). As of now, the following functionality isn't
there:

* No virtual cursor.

* No forms mode of any kind.

* No links/headings/forms/frames list (for example, if you press
JAWS+F7, you'll be asked to use caret browsing instead).

* No smart nav (haven't tested that far, but smart nav assumes you
can use navigation commands to navigate a document).

* Touch cursor may not be reliable in Edge (partly due to some weird
and broken UIA coding by Microsoft).

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph
