Re: Web sites issue



I must have been asleep for a while, because when I last dozed off, Google
Chrome was nearly completely inaccessible. Have things improved?

As I said, the simple solution is to install Google Chrome, using IE
exclusively often is just not enough anymore and will continue to be more
and more problematic.
You have to look at this like you look at apps on iOS, most of us use
several map/GPS apps like Apple Maps and/or Google Maps along with
Blindsquare, Seeing Eye GPS or Nearby Explorer. Most of us use various apps
for doing OCR and identifying/recognizing objects, money, barcodes etc.
Using two browsers on the PC is no different, try Chrome and then use it
either as your primary or secondary browser along with IE. For basic
browsing Chrome is not a steep learning curve, all quick nav keys work just
the same as in IE as these are Jaws functions and they are the same in all

I'm not glad you're having the same problem but I'm glad it's not just me.
This just started a few days ago but it doesn't happen every time ......
Frustrating ......

During the past few days, when I enter on a link from a web site for a
specific page, sometimes I get a fairly long message saying something about
"the security of this site cannot be verified". When this happens I cannot
get it to go away; when I press alt + f4 or try to go back to the previous
page Jaws just keeps repeating this message. This morning it happened again
and I kept pressing alt + f4 about six or seven times and finally it got me
off the internet.

Sometimes this occurs and sometimes not. The web sites I'm speaking of are
ones that I've used regularly for a long time without any problems .. This
does not happen every time and does not happen on all web sites.

One of the web sites is .. I go to this site, read the three
day local forecast, and then click on extended forecast".

Again, this problem does not occur every time and it does happen on some
other web sites. I'm using Jaws 18, Windows 10, and IE 11. Does anybody
have any thoughts on why this is happening? Any suggestions are greatly
