Hi Net bat,
I'm running the installed version of Waterfox, Windows 7 Pro
with Jaws 16. When you start Water fox press, Alt + T, then, O, to open
options. Now tab to either, Options or Options Document, and down arrow to
List Box. Press enter on, List Box, now you can down arrow to the various
tabs in Tools / Options and you can tab through the settings for each
You can also open Waterfox and turn the virtual cursor off
with, Insert + Z, press, Alt + t, then, O, to open option. Now, tab 1 time
to the list of Options / tabs, arrow up / down through the list of Options tabs
and tab through the options tabs to change settings.
Take Care. Mike. Sent from my

do you need a add on to make it accessible?
i am trying the
portible version and few of the jaws options work as is.
with the virtual pc
cursor onedit boxes, headings read to end etc. don’t work
with jaws as
and why are all the help options going to the firefox web
The best browser to use with JAWS, for me,
has been a browser called:
It was developed in 2012, and
it is a spin off of Firefox, but it works tons
It can use all
of the classic Firefox plugins, and it is so very fast.
JAWS never messes
up in Waterfox. It is kept up to date, and it is very secure.
A new update
just came out.
Water fox has an interface that is almost like the old
It has a spell check built in and everything.
It has a
reading mode where you can get the clutter off the page, and read
The reading mode is built in.
Alt+CTRL+R to put a web site into reading mode.
I would say that Waterfox is my favorite browser.
You can just do a
Google search for Waterfox.
What I like as well, is the ability to
download a portable version of Waterfox.
I love running a portable
version, that I keep on the computer, because you do
not have to install it
on the computer. Also, if you keep the portable version
on the computer, you
can create a short cut on the desktop just like you can
I hope this helps.
Take care, Liz.

browser to use with JAWS.
I am going to be receiving some
in depth computer training in preparation for
vocational training services.
Since Internet Explorer is no longer secure, what
is the best browser out
there that is JAWS friendly? I have used fire fox in
the past, but as of late
I have heard mixed views about fire fox.
