Re: some basic chrome naviagation questions


It does, here is what Jaws says if I press the Alt key when I’m on a website:


Chrome button menu, ?Customize and control Google Chrome

Hitting alt by itself doesn't seem to go anywhere.

Provided you are not in the address edit box, ALT will throw focus on to the Chrome Menu button.  NVDA announces "Chrome Menu button" the moment you have focus on that button.  I don't have JAWS handy, but in work I've done with clients I could swear it does the same thing, at least in any of the more recent versions.

I'm now curious if JAWS is not announcing this and, if so, what version or versions aren't doing so?
