Try control plus enter for some of those.
My latest surprise.

I'm using the same version. When Chrome and JAWS work together, moving from page to page is much, much faster than with either IE or FF, but I keep encountering websites where data can't be entered. The latest is Yahoo Finance, where stock symbols can't be entered.

Two tips:

I kept getting a warning about Chrome not being the default. I finally heard that JAWS was telling me to press alt-shift-a. When I did so, I tabbed through to "Don't ask again" and checked it.

Control-d works to create a favorite, but initially I couldn't edit the name that popped up. However, you can tab to an edit field and create your own name.

Hi Ted:
Chrome Version 46.0.2490.80
is the version I'm using.
It seems to be working better than ever before.
I don't know how to get feeds,
and I think webvisum is not available.

Didn't work so great in 15 or 16 either on 7 64. When did this miraculous transformation occur; was there a recent Chrome update?

Back when I had XP and JAWS 13, Chrome did not work.

Bye for now,

Hi all.
I have been experimenting with Google Chrome Browser, and I have
found that it is very accessible and easy to use. More than that, I
can open the same web site in half the time as with IE or Firefox. It
never crashes, and it is more stable than any other browser. It is
the best browser when it comes to streaming videos and other media by
far. The video never pauses for example. In IE, the same video pauses
a few times for a few seconds. Also, Google Chrome is the easiest
browser to use. Yes, I am not kidding. Simply press enter on the
browser, and the home page opens. I have mine set to Google of
course. Now, just press alt and the screen reader will say chrome
button. If you press down arrow, every setting and menu you will ever
need is in that one vertical column. The history, delete history,
book marks, are all in that one vertical menu just by pressing the
alt key on the home page. All navigation JAWS short cut keys work in
Google Chrome. I have not found anything yet that is n ot
accessible. Also, every JAWS key command works in Chrome just like
in IE. You can just press alt + D for the address bar for example. I
will continue to play around with Google Chrome a little more, and I
will be ready to do an Audio tutorial for you guys. You will not
believe just how much better Google Chrome is over any other browser.
You will hear it with your own ears when I send you the tutorial
probably by Friday. I know some of you will use Chrome as your
default browser. God bless and have a great night. Talk to all of you
soon.
