One thing I like about edge is that it tells you when page is complete and loading. I also like how the notification is so clear.
It’ll say something like press alt+N, for this notification. It says: XYZ XYZ XYZ.
I like this a lot.

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 here.
Curious to learn of it’s current status.
Thanks in advance, Keith
