Can't access settings combo box in google chrome


Juanita
 

Hi all:

 

I’m using jaws 2018 and public beta 2019 and Windows 10. On the google chrome home page, nothing I’ve tried will let me access the settings combo box. I’ve tried alt-down arrow and enter. I’m trying to get to advance settings to allow popups. Thanks in advance for any suggestions for solving this problem.

Hi,

 

It’s not a combo, just press enter on Advanced Settings, and all the items will appear below it in browse mode.

 

All the best


Steve

i've been unable to use Chrome since lastweek. And google voice is not quite right on my phone. I switched to Edge for now. Think google is effecting some functions. My son's phone does the same thimg.

Juanita, seems to be a focus issue or something. try pressing alt+f and
then s for settings. press alt+tab and, without releasing the alt key,
press shift+tab and release all keys, now you should be able to press
control+end to jump to the end of the page and upp arrow to and spacebar
on the advanced button.

Chrome's fine here. Why can't you use it?

All the best

This worked beautifully, though I don't know why. I still can't activate the buttons under settings. What am I missing? I can't tell if a button is pressed or not. Thanks for your help.

when a button is pressed, JAWS should repeat the name of the button
followed by "pressed". maybe try refreshing the screen reading by
pressing insert+escape, or pressing and holding alt down, tab and then
shift+tab.
