Re: jaws and chrome

The most recent issue that's come up is that the new version of Chrome automatically signs you into your google account. Some people don't even realise they are signed in. Probably not a big deal to a lot of people, but it does make me, personally, feel wary, especially as my Android phone is also linked to my Google account and already bothering me somewhat with its insistence on knowing where I am and what I am doing. *grins*

I think it's difficult to get around Google and if you use Firefox or Edge and still use for searching there isn't probably a lot of difference. I guess you would have to use Firefox and DuckDuckGo or strictly stick with Edge and Bing if you want to cut out Google as much as possible.

There are other reasons not to use Chrome, such as Google's questionable data slurping practices, but speed is definitely not, or should not be anyway, one of them.

Well said, and I could not agree more. Anyone at this point that is having these type of problems with chrome I feel should consult someone who can take a look at their system, configuration, etc. Possibly a call to Microsoft accessibility services were consult with someone else’s something clearly passed in the corrupt with the system. Chrome at this point is the most popular browser by far and most people that I talk to on lists are having an excellent results with jaws

You are kidding. IE is slow, freezes and outmoded. That's with JAWS 2018.
Chrome is a whole load better.

My chrome stopped working, altogether. Using Jws 18 and 19 beta with
same results. I was told by one who knows, that the old Internet
Explorer actually works best with Jaws. Very reliable source. Turns out that I.E.
actually works very well and I'm using it for now.

Hey guys,

I write this in a jaws context because I am not sure how else to
address the issue.

I am using win10 jaws2018 and chrome;

Some pages I go too, don't allow me to use alt to open the menus,

And further, those same pages don't allow me to do a ctrl+d to add to

It doesn't seem to matter if the window is maximized or not;

Is this a jaws issue?

Or is it strictly a chrome issue?

Can someone please advise?
