Thank you.  I will give Schwab a deeper look.  I did see that e-Trade is being acquired.

I endorse George’s recommendation of Schwab. Some years ago, they did considerable work on accessibility with me and another JAWS user, and they remain responsive.

Another JAWS user is an advocate of Fidelity. As a broker himself, he has some influence over Fidelity’s practices.

You may know that e-Trade is in the process of being purchased by Morgan Stanley. I’m not sure how much priority accessibility will receive during a pending acquisition.

I’ve had accessibility issues with Vanguard in the past, but I haven’t been on that website for a long time.

Can anyone recommend online investing sites that work well with JAWS?

 

I am considering Fidelity, Vanguard and E-trade, but I am open to other similar sites.  I am looking to invest in mutual funds for my IRA.

 

Thank you for any information.

I’ve been a long-time investor with Fidelity. You can use their web site as it is accessible. I really like their app for the iPhone. It’s excellent. I am able to buy and sell mutual funds or, on occasion, individual stocks. Let me know if you have further questions.

Best Regards,

Re: JAWS 2020 August Release: Frequent Crashes With Firefox 80

Well, I bother with firefox because of the facebook container plugin, and I like the way menus work much better than chrome.  Besides that, before the most recent update of Jaws, chrome and chromium-based edge would crash on my local news station kmiz.com website.  FF80 is purring like a kitten here with the latest release of jaws.

If one thing can be said for the complexity of the modern computing environment experience, it’s that no experiences appear to be universal – running Firefox 80 and happy to report not a single crash yet. I do still use Chrome also and like it for some things, but Firefox is still my first choice. Usually either one of them will do the trick. I appreciate Chrome for speed and how nicely it works with, for instance, youtube (not surprising as that’s also a google product).

 

There was a problem with version 78 or so I believe, but Mozilla does seem to be pretty quick to fix issues on their end when they emerge.

Gerald why the hell you got to be so damn negative? Marko Z is still fighting along with James Teh formily of NV Access. FF is still very much accessible. Its our chose what browser we use. I like both FF and Edge. Edge is a speed demon as far as loading pages. I know FF has had issues with JFW. If you'd like, but I doubt you will take your issues up with the FF DEVS at Mozilla.

Re: Deleting browsing data in Google Chrome

 

I've never had this happen with the Google Chrome browser, nor seen it reported elsewhere.   If you've done a complete uninstall and reinstall, and that has not fixed the issue, the only thing I could recommend is using something like Revo Uninstaller, after having done the regular uninstall for Chrome, then trying to install again.

These days, there are so many Chromium-based browsers that if you like Chrome you can transition to virtually any of them without even noticing you have.  New Edge and Brave are both good options, and there are others.

Deleting browsing data in Google Chrome

kevin meyers
 

Hello,

 

I have to delete the browsing data in Google Chrome 3-4 times a week. Is there a reason I need to clear it out that often? Is it possible to set it up to clear it outevery few days?

 

Also I use the Chrome short cut on my desktop. I press enter and I’m taken to the window and a few seconds later I’m taken back to the desktop and I’m on the short cut for Chrome. Then I press alt tab until I get to the Chrome window. When I get there, the cursor is not on the search bar. I have to tab backward or forward to locate it. Is there a reason this happens? I have uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled and the problem doesn’t go away. Is there something I can do to stop this from happening?

 

This did happen in the past. It stopped for a while and then came back.

 

Cheers,

 

Kevin
