I use Chrome too, for the most part. I’ve
tried edge and it does seem to work with both JAWS and NVDA.
There are some oddities with JAWS, for example the speech
announces entering and exiting various elementswhen navigation
keys are used.
However, my experience with Edge is not at
all extensive. I don’t yet need it for professional purposes
(I work on accessibility research and standards activities,
for which Chrome and Firefox are enough). I also use Chrome
and safari on the Mac regularly, so it isn’t as though I’m
lacking options in the browser department.
Edge is well worth watching. Microsoft
developers have been improving its accessibility support in
impressive ways, including ARIA and HTML standards.
Maybe, the problem for
me is that I am about 26 times faster with Chrome and Jaws
than I would be with Edge and Narrator. Hence I use Chrome.
Edge works so much better with Narrator.
You can do everything with Edge using
Narrator instead of JAWS.

Hi, Keith. I use Edge for some things
like Internet radio streaming, but it has some nasty querks,
like displaying pages in tabular form, even when the page
doesn’t display as a table in other browsers.
I’m new to Windows 10, and currently using
Google Chrome as my default browser, which is working well.
I haven’t heard mention recently about
usability of Edge browser with JAWS, so I’m guessing it’s
still is not a viable option, but wanted to check by inquiring
Curious to learn of it’s current status.
Thanks in advance, Keith
