Try reading Alt + tab to task switch back to refocus the page?

Good morning:


Here is what I notice with JAWS and Chrome.


  1. Oftentimes, Chrome takes a while to bring up a page. Pressing INSERT+T gives you Chrome untitled.
  2. When the page actually does come up, I routinely press Numpad Plus to hear JAWS say Virtual Cursor. This is my confirmation that I can now use some of the JAWS shortcut commands to navigate through the page.
  3. Otherwise, JAWS with Chrome is working fairly well for me.




Best regards,

Usually JAWS works well with chrome. But I notice that sometimes it doesn't work, like suddenly the navigation keys don't work. I try reloading the page and it doesn't work. It's a matter of time before I try something that makes it work, like restarting JAWS. But I don't know what it is going on. Maybe something on the page hasn't fully loaded? Any ideas?

Was wondering if anyone has knowledge if Spark Instant Messenger is compatible with JAWS 2018?
