moderated Re: Find command not working accurately on the web
In my humble experience, turning off the screen refresh will solve the problems described below. I just press the F5 manual refresh command when I need to, and that seems to work fine.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Yeah, not sure. It's a very useful command, but, it seems that sometimes when web content is dynamic (iE, changing/refreshing/moving regularly) it does not work. That's just my theory. I use this command all the time but I know on the main page for a local food/restaurant delivery service for instance, I cannot use this command to find a restaurant on the page, and that's just one example. Not sure there is a "fix" per se ... guess you could turn off automatic page refresh and see what happens, but then you may run into other problems with a site.

I Use JAWS 2019 with Chrome. Sometimes, when you perform a find command [either with control+insert+f or with insert+f], JAWS immediately says that there are no matching results. This is even though I know for a fact that there are matching results on the page.
How can I fix this?
