Moderated Re: Jaws not reading text as I type in edit fields in Edge

Van Lant, Robin

I’m still running JAWS 2021 on my work laptop and I see this occasionally on some sites, but I’d have to pay more attention to the issue.   There does seem to be some issues with web design on some edit boxes.  A couple things that work for me are to use  insert up arrow to validate what is in the edit box or, if that doesnn’t work or if I’m trying to get to a particular place to edit what is there, I find that using Shift Control arrows to highlight the text will read each word as it is highlighted.  So, if I make a typo in a comment box and want to go edit a word, I’ll go to the beginning, then do the shift Control right arrow to read the text, then when I hear the place I need to change, I’ll stop pressing the control and shift and just hit right or left arrow.  It can still be a guessing game, and if it’s a really long sentence I’m editing, I might just copy and paste into notepad to edit.

Unfortunately, this is on a work machine. We have a couple of programs that only work with Jaws 18, so upgrading for now is out of the question. It’s very strange, if I tab out of the field and go back it will read what I have typed in, but if I try to use the jaws commands to read word or line or go back or forward, it doesn’t read anything. Nor does anything show up on the braille display. Very strange as I don’t have this problem in explorer.
