moderated Firefox 102 workaround for JAWS Users


Curtis Chong
 

Greetings and salutations:

If one has to use Firefox 102, for whatever reason, there really is a work-around to the inability to read the context menu you open up when you right click on a link.

Focus on the link with the virtual cursor for JAWS turned on. Now, with Insert z, turn off the virtual cursor and tab back and forth until you are sure you are focused on the correct link. Then, activate the right click function (Shift F10 in my case). Use arrow keys to review the menu.

The JAWS latest update seems to have broken something inasmuch as, with NVDA, this work-around is not necessary.

Cordially,

Curtis Chong
