MS Edge and Jaws?


Lauren Snyder
 

Can someone tell me if this program, which seems to be new with Windows 10 is Jaws accessible? For instance, I entered on a file I wanted to open and the Edge launched, but I can’t figure out how to actually access the file I want.

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Lauren

I have heard it will be close to a year before Edge is completely screen reader friendly.  I think I was doing a webinar with FS and someone asked a question about accessibility of Edge and that was the answer.

Hi,

I’d say it all depends on how Microsoft will keep up with demand and keeps its promises of improved accessibility. Support for Microsoft Edge is a huge step forward, as other things in Windows 10 uses Edge based controls (including Microsoft Account log-in screen under Settings/Accounts). However, I think Freedom Scientific should take an active role in this endeavor, as support for Edge means improved handling of UI Automation controls (there are two screen readers that are known to even interact with Edge at this point, and it isn’t JAWS). My hope is that, by JFW 18, Edge support would be included.

To change your default browser in Windows 10, press Windows+I, navigate to System/Default Apps, select web browser (press SPACE), press TAB to go to something other than Edge, press SPACE and you are good to go (I’ll write a wiki article regarding this question and will send it to this list today).

Cheers,

Joseph

The extension to the file should just tell you the file type (JAWS should read Doc, docx, or pdf). I will email you instructions on how to set your default browser to Internet Explorer or Firefox.

When I pressed enter on a file in my documents or the desktop, Edge opened automatically. How do I stop that?

Subject: MS Edge and Jaws?

 

Can someone tell me if this program, which seems to be new with Windows 10 is Jaws accessible? For instance, I entered on a file I wanted to open and the Edge launched, but I can’t figure out how to actually access the file I want.

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Lauren

Instead of pressing enter, press your applications key. Down arrow to “open with”, press right arrow and then down arrow until you find the program you want to use to open the document. You can set Internet Explorer or Firefox as your default browser as well.
