It just happened again.  I used JAWS-T and heard the "title is….  I tried to navigate using H for headings and just heard "h"  I tried ALT-tab to switch programs.  Again I could not navigate by headings, which I am confident are present.  I refreshed the page with no change.  After I unloaded and re-loaded JAWS it behaved normally.  I am using the most recent Chrome browser and JAWS 21 on a Win10 laptop.

I wonder if it is JAWS not detecting that Chrome is in focus?

When it next happens, please someone do a JAWS Key and T and tell us what it reports. I’ll do the same if it happens to me.


All the best

It just happened, and I tried James' suggestion of pressing Alt + Tab to leave chrome and then Alt + Tab to go back to chrome. It worked. Thanks James. Does anyone know why it works?
