Re: The best internet browser to use with JAWS.

Steve,

Using IOS 12.1.4 I have looked quite extensively in settings under Safari,
etc. and cannot find where to disable this. I googled and it said turn off
under restrictions which I can no longer find. Suggestions? Only reference
to anything about restrictions I found is under screen time which I have
disabled and do not use

Hi,

Yes, you can have Chrome as a default on iPhone, but you have to go a
convoluted way to do it, you disable Safari as your browser in settings.

All the best

Are you saying you can have Chrome as a default browser on an iPhone as
well? The rest of what you say below I agree with and is why I like Chrome

Hi,

What I like about Chrome is if you have a Gmail account, you can sync your
browsing history across all devices. This is really useful if you come
across a web site not accessible on your phone, you can go onto your PC,
load Chrome, hit Control+H then load that site on your PC.

All the best

Steve

I use Firefox latest version with Jaws 2018 and have no issues.
Some folks like Chrome.
The best browser is the one you can use and feel comfortable with.
Does the training organization have a preference?

Other than IE, of course.

Later,

Hi.

 

Yes, hitting alt instantly says ‘chromium button” for me using JAWS 2018 and allows access of the menus. JAWS 18 performed exactly the same way.

Like in firefox, if you press f11, this menu disappears and alt will do nothing. So if you hit alt and nothing seems to happen, try this toggle to bring it back.

Provided you are not in the address edit box, ALT will throw focus on to the Chrome Menu button.  NVDA announces "Chrome Menu button" the moment you have focus on that button.  I don't have JAWS handy, but in work I've done with clients I could swear it does the same thing, at least in any of the more recent versions.

I'm now curious if JAWS is not announcing this and, if so, what version or versions aren't doing so?

Hi!



In Firefox, when I go to the add-in manager nothing seems to happen. I do hear a sound as if I am placed into some edit field, like a search box. However, that is all that seems to happen. I cannot move out of that box, tab around or otherwise see what is on this screen. How do I access this properly? FYI, I am using the latest builds of JAWS 2019 and Firefox under Windows 7.



Thanks,

Re: The best internet browser to use with JAWS.

 

I guess it's the new and different which makes you not satisfied, when it comes to speed there is just no comparison and as for the rest you get used to it. I have used Chrome now for a couple of years pretty much 99.9% of the time and if for some reason I go back to IE to check something its slowness drives me crazy.
