moderated Re: Does the LastPass Chrome extension work with JAWS

James Benstead

Thank you John. I did some more experimentation and found a good workaround: if I'm in an edit box that LastPass can supply a user ID or password for, I can use the JAWS cursor to right click and then access LastPass via the context menu. It's a little cumbersome but after a couple of runs through it gets pretty efficient. Seems like a couple of scripts to automate the various keystrokes wouldn't be too hard to write, either.


Too brief? Here's why!

I do use it, its a pita, but does work.  What exactly are you trying
to access?  If you want to go into your vault, hit f6 till you see the
address bar and then keep tabbing till you hear lastpass has access to
this site and press enter.  I am not sure if this is what you want,
but this is what I know.

Your life is like a penny.  You're going to lose it.  The question is:
How do
you spend it?
