Yes, I've seen that one too, on many websites, not just search.

You load a page, then have to press tab before the virtual cursor comes on.

All the best

Greetings:

When running a search through Google with Chrome, I have found that it helps to press the plus key on the number pad to verify the virtual cursor is actually on. If I hear JAWS say PC cursor, I have to press tab once. Why this happens is a mystery to me, but if I use this approach, I get focus on the web page so that JAWS can interpret it sooner.

Best regards,

Curtis Chong

i,

I use JAWS 2021, Chrome version 92, ending with 131. I have been recently facing the following issue.

On Google, when I put in a search request, on the search results page, the list of results entirely disappears after a few seconds. As in, I get the full list of results initially, and then it vanishes for JAWS, even though I am told sighted folk can see it there. For me, it says about so-and-so results, search results, and then directly related searches.

This has only been happening for a couple of days. Any thoughts?

Rahul
