so far I was successful only partially:

After installing Tampermonkey that is now in my windows edge browser,

I went  to

After opening this web page

I clicked  the link "WhatsApp web with more accessability"
this brought me to another website related to tambermonkey but there was no linkt labelled "install".

Srprisingly  the whatsapp script was - after accepting a security warning - sdownloaded to my downloadfolder.

Now it sits in my download folder

Any ideas how to get it installed?

Pasting the instructions for installing the Whatzapp Web scrips.

After installing Tampermonkey, go to

After opening this web page just navigate between headings and links
with their respective quick keys.
Then you will get a link name with "WhatsApp web with more
accessibility", press enter on it.
Then there will be an another tab which is now opened, there you will
get install button simply press enter on it
after installation of that script just simply go to the WhatsApp web
and turn on the script by pressing alt + s & if you get in the another
language simply
change the language by pressing alt + l and choose English, now your
script is successfully activated and it will work in English language.

I'm a regular user of Whatsapp, so this inerests me.

Once I install the extension, how do I install the scripts? This is not clear to me.

Best wishes,

Pasting below a mail regarding scrips for Whatzapp Web which I
received from another list. The scrips work with JAWS.

Hello everyone! in this article  I will  speak a little about
accessibility and usability, specificly on Whatsapp Web, and sharing
a script, users of screen
reader, can work on   Whatsapp by the computer with more autonomy,
practicality and confidence.

The informations about the script and its installation are bellow: :

To use the scripts, it is necessary to have the extension
Tampermonkey for your browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox,
Opera, Microsoft Edge ou Safari).
After that, just access the script, which will be recognized by
Tampermonkey, and click on install.


After installing the script for Whatsapp Web,
WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility, when accessing the app, you must
wait for the application to load and then use the shortcut ALT + S.
If the script is deactivated, the message:
Script activated successfully will be displayed; if the script is
already activated, an alert will be given with the message Script
disabled. When you deactivate it, all elements and shortcuts created
by it will be removed, except the activation and deactivation

Added elements and labels

With WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility enabled, the following
modifications will be applied:
• Before the panel with the chat list there will be a level 1 header
H1 to facilitate navigation via the screen reader, by pressing the 'h'
key or the
number '1' in the navigation mode;
• After opening a chat, at the beginning of the contact / group area
there will be a level 2 H2 header, with the label "Active chat +
CONTACT / GROUP NAME", which can be accessed by pressing the 'h' key
or number 2 in browse mode; • The emogi buttons will be labeled
above the message writing field in the footer; • After the message
writing field, there will be a button with the label "Record voice
message" if the text field is clear, or "Send text message" if it is
filled; • When you click on the "Record Voice Message" button, a
"Cancel recording" button, the recording time and another button
with the label "Send voice message"
will appear below the message field;

Shortcut keys

After enabling WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility, the following
shortcut keys are available:
• ALT + a: focus on the options for choosing the type of attachment
to be sent in the active chat; • ALT + B: focus on the search field
and label it as "Search chat and contacts ..."; • ALT + C: focus on
the chat list; • ALT + E: puts the focus on the message writing
field and labels it "Write a message (name of the active chat)"; •
ALT + L: opens an options box to select the language of the script
(Portuguese, English or Spanish), after pressing the 'enter' key in
the desired option, the script messages will be in that language; •
ALT + M: puts the focus on the message list of the active chat; •
ALT + S: activate and deactivate the script; • ALT + T: speak the
title of the active chat.
NOTE: sometimes NVDA does not go into focus mode automatically when
using shortcuts, so you may need to put it in focus mode with the
shortcut NVDA + space bar. Other keys can be configured as the NVDA
key, but by default it is 'Insert'.

I have "whatsapp web" on my windows PC installed.

Although this is a official windows program Most of the tasks seem
not accessable with Jaws and some of the buttons are not labelled.

Are there any shortcut keys?

I was able to compose a message but So far I was not able to access
the send button.

Reaching received messages is also a real challenge - at least for me.

Any help is appreciated.
