Moderated Re: Problem with Find Command in Chromium Browsers

I have tried control + insert F before and I just tried it now, and no go! I
am stuck at the top of the page.

By the way, in both cases control + insert + F and insert + F JAWS says
"JAWS find."

Thanks for trying!

BTW, if NVDA ever should be needed to be used, it has it's own find feature
using the same keystrokes, insert+control+f.

Subject: Problem with Find Command in Chromium Browsers Hello.

Why are you using the browser's own find command?  If you are in virtual pc
mode, the jaws find command is the one you will want to use, it is
insert-ctrl-f on the normal desktop layout.  It will work much better.

Hi all,

I am using Edge and Chrome with the latest Windows 10 and the latest
JAWS—that is the January update. I have been working on some fairly large
webpages, and when I do a Control + F to find something on a page it seems
that JAWS gets stuck at the top of the page. Neither arrowing or tabbing up
or down goes anywhere. The only way I can get to the result is to press F6
to cycle through all of the various bars until I get back to the webpage.
It’s not a big problem, but it is time consuming, and it doesn’t seem it
should be happening. It is happening in both Edge and Chrome.

I generally work from my Mantis Q40 with blue tooth using the laptop
settings for JAWS keystrokes. I have tried going to my desktop computer and
changing to desktop layout and even using a different braille display using
usb, but no change.

By the way, the find command works correctly in IE, and with the chromium
browsers with JAWS 2020. Also, I have tried using control + insert + F
instead of just insert + F and no go.

I called Freedom Scientific and we repaired JAWS, but no change.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for any help!

Take care and stay safe!
