Google Docs


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

I just caught a podcast by Kevin Chow (not 100% certain of spelling) with an interesting demonstration of Google Docs. He was using NVDA, but mentioned that Google Docs claims JAWS works with the new Google Docs. Apparently, however, one needs to use Google Chrome and perhaps also something called Google Vox (I think).
Clearly, from the demonstration, Google Docs isn't for prime time, but for those who have to use it, it appears to be useable -- to some extent.
Has anyone had success using Google Docs with JAWS 12 or even the dreaded JAWS 13?

Ed,

Nope. Didn't work worth a darn with JAWS 13. I refused to accept their kind
offer to install Google Chrome.

I also had no luck using jaws 13, the only thing I can read in a doc
is email addresses that it gives as links. Is crome accessible with
jaws? I tryed it a long time ago with jaws 11 I think and back then it
wasn't.

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

According to the Podcast, "Listen and Learn," available on iBlink Radio (for iPhone), the demonstrator reported that Google claims it is accessable with JAWS and VoiceOver.
Chow did a good job, though he was using NVDA.
Actually, he was using FireFox and went to docs.google.com
The key was to be in "focus" mode, not brows mode. I think "focus" mode for NVDA must be something like forms mode (PC cursor) as opposed to Virtual cursor.

Alt plus shift plus grave is supposed to start "screen reader mode." It did not in the demo.
Kevin had to tab about 15 times and then hit "screen reader support."
I never found this option.
Then again, I'm using Internet Explorer.
This was apparently a fairly recent demonstration.

I had a student use JAWS 12 with both Chrome and Internet Explorer with
similar results. While they were able to type in the document, they were not
able to edit the information.

The only thing I use it for is file storage. Other then that, I never had
any luck with any of the other features.

Hi Everyone,

I would stay away from Google Chrome Or at least think about this. I had
some program install Google Chrome without my knowing it and when I
uninstalled Chrome it messed up my registry. Hyperlinks didn't work in
Excel, Web links in a Outlook email didn't launch IE. They both gave me the
same error your computer has restrictions on it see your administrator. This
was pretty much a nightmare to finally fix this problem.
