Re: Chrome and combo boxes

Thanks, Andre. The next time I'm at a combo box, I'll try spacebar to get in and escape to get out. As you know, there are different kinds of combo boxes that behave differently with JAWS.

I just hit the spacebar to open the combo list. Hit enter on what I want or
escape to exit. That's what I have seen on my machine. The worst issue
Ihave with Chrome is that it is slow. Hope this helps.

Alt-down arrow does nothing as a first key combination in the combo box I
just tried. It doesn't work until I first press enter. I handle combo boxes
by habit, so I can't be sure of this, but I think I always have to press
enter first and then alt-down arrow. I'll be curious how anyone using Chrome
handles combo boxes.

Alt-down arrow is supposed to open a combo box. I wonder if you opened it
that way if the behavior would be different. Probably not, but it's worth a
try??? (LOL) At 04:41 AM 11/11/2015, you wrote:
Hi. While browsing with Chrome, I'm having difficulty exiting combo
boxes while preserving my choices. With IE, and I think also Firefox, I
usually (1) press enter, then (2) alt-down arrow, then
(3) arrow down to my choice, (4) keep focus there and (5) press alt-up
arrow. Step 5 preserves my choice and takes me out of the box.

With Chrome, step 5 doesn't work. Instead, I need to press enter on my
choice. However, I'm still in the combo box. Alt-up arrow doesn't take
me out, or if it does, I lose my choice. In one case, the wrong choice
is shown.

Just now, pressing enter on my choice and then tabbing to the next
field took me out of the combo box into the next field. Is this the
only way of exiting a combo box in Chrome while preserving your choice?
What if there isn't another field? (I haven't been able to test this
possibility yet.)
