Water Fox is even faster. I just started using it and it is noticeably faster loading pages than Chromium based browsers. I dont have any real issues with Edge but Water Fox is just faster so far anyway.

Becoming familiar with the web browser and its settings is essential these days since there are so many things to enable or disable. It's also good to have a few browsers at your disposal - for instance, Chrome, edge, and firefox - just in case a website doesn't play nice with one or the other.
I'm using Chrome, at least until I get the new Microsoft Edge, with firefox as a very little used backup. I stopped using it as my main browser when I realized just how much faster Chrome loaded web pages.
Hope that helps. It's a lot to take in and learn, at least at first, but a lot of web browsers share core functions such as remembering passwords, clearing history and temporary internet files, auto complete e.g. remembering usernames or searches that you type in the address bar. It just may be phrased a little differently in each.

Hi David,

You are describing Edge HTML which originally was included with Windows 10. This new version of Edge which started to be distributed via Windows Update yesterday is based on the open source chromium engine which is aso used by Google Chrome and many other web browsers and it behaves completely differently. In fact, it is very much like Chrome, extremely accessible, very fast and with fantastic keyboard shortcut support.
There are no more "opening" or "closing" or whatever other announcements. I really recommend to wait until you get it via Windows Update and then try it. If you use Jaws and ask it to speak the version with Jaws Key + Control + V when the application is open, you should hear something like version 79 with a bunch of other numbers, if it still says version 44 you still have the old Edge.
For iPhone users there is also an iOS version of Edge and if you sign in on your PC and your iPhone with your Microsoft Id all your favourites, history and such will sync, I rarely use a browser on my iPhone, but Jonathan Mosen is apparently quite impressed by the iOS version as well as the new chromium based Windows version of Edge.

I must be missing something or late to the dance. I can't stand Edge with all of its prompts. "Opening ... closing ..." It drives me crazy. It is like someone telling you all the time, "starting street crossing, stopping street crossing, coming to ... leaving ..." I don't need or want all that information told to me. Just tell me you are opening the web page or dialog box.

I disabled the UI autimations in the flags settings of Edge. It seems to be working a little better. I would also highly recommend that you turn off autofilling of your user names and passwords. Maybe it's a personal preference for me, but it seems to work better when this information is not be remembered by the browser.

Hi Jim,

 

Just install the very latest update right on top of the current one. I’ve had that problem before. If for some crazy reason,  that doesn’t work, remove your JAWS 2020 completely and re-install it. You won’t lose your licence.

Hi Jim,

Have you already tried doing a repair of the JAWS installation? If not I would firstly try doing that. If you need instructions let me know. If that didn't work, I would try uninstalling and then re-installing JAWS. 

Good luck.

Hi all,

I'm currently using Chrome to save my passwords and want to move to a dedicated password manager. I'm looking at Last Pass and 1Password. Any feedback on either program would be much appreciated.

The easiest way to unhide rows and columns is in the format menu.

 

If you don’t know which rows and columns are hidden:

  • Select the data range (CTRL-SHIFT-NUMBER ROW 8)
  • Open the Home ribbon (ALT-H)
  • Open the Format menu (O)

 

Within the format menu

  • Activate “Unhide columns” to unhide all columns.
  • Activate “Unhide rows” to unhide all rows

If Rumola still works with Chrome then you can use it with Edge as well since you can install extensions from the Chrome extension store in Edge.

Both Chrome and Edge use chromium as their engine, but I wouldn’t call it “another copy cat” just as I wouldn’t call a new model of a Ford car a copy cat to a new model of a GM or vice versa just because both use an internal combustion engine.

It comes down to personal preference, for example, Edge does have the Read Aloud feature which works very well and which you can sort of do in Chrome but only with one of a number of extensions.

I don’t, but once again my recommendation of Aira or Be My Eyes stands unless you don’t have a smartphone.

I also haven’t come across a non-accessible captcha in a long time, a lot of times you just have to check “I’m not a robot” and in the new occasions where this doesn’t work and there really is no audio option using Aira is fast and efficient.

You can turn this off and, for myself, I never liked Firefox all that much even during it's best days and they seem to be long since over. In fact, I think just as most sighted people, most visually impaired users now use Google Chrome. Some still use Firefox, but from what I see on the few lists I am on it is not that many any more and they have lost a lot of market share in the last few years.

I must be missing something or late to the dance. I can't stand Edge with all of its prompts. "Opening ... closing ..." It drives me crazy. It is like someone telling you all the time, "starting street crossing, stopping street crossing, coming to ... leaving ..." I don't need or want all that information told to me. Just tell me you are opening the web page or dialog box.

I disabled the UI autimations in the flags settings of Edge. It seems to be working a little better. I would also highly recommend that you turn off autofilling of your user names and passwords. Maybe it's a personal preference for me, but it seems to work better when this information is not be remembered by the browser.

Hi All



I've just installed the new edge from the Microsoft website and I'm
finding it not very accessible with JAWS. First of all when navigating
around pages you get it saying "Japanese" some of the time as well as the page content.
Also, the menu controls are not always read out. I'm using the latest
build of JAWS 2020.

Any input is much appreciated.



Thanks

Debbie

Highlight the row above and below the hidden cells or highlight the column to the left and to the right of the hidden cells.  Then in the "HOME" menu, go down to "Cells", open this menu and click "FORMAT", then click unhide columns or unhide rows.
