some basic chrome naviagation questions


Jed Barton
 

Hey guys,

So i just downloaded Chrome. Wow, this thing is fast. A few
navigation questions. What's the best way to open a new tab, i think
it's control T but it didn't seem to say anything. Also, what's the
best way to get to my bookmarks? I did an import from firefox. I'm
gonna take chrome for atest drive to see how i like it. Any other
suggestions for setup?

Thanks,
Jed

Will Chrome work with JAWS 16?  Or does it only work with later versions of JAWS?

Ctrl-t is the command you want for new tab.  It may or may not say anything.  alt-f b will get you to bookmarks as fast as you can in chrome.


Good luck.

launch chrome, that's what loads?

As far as I know it does not work or work well with Jaws 16.

It is buried in settings.  Press alt, arrow down to settings, hit enter, start tabbing.  Tab until you here show home button, one tab after that is a set of radio buttons for where chrome starts. You can enter an address there, at least that's my best guess.  I prefer no page so I choose the new tab page button.

No, I was wrong on that.  Keep tabbing until after a button that says make default.  The next set of radio buttons will do what you want.  Select open a page or set of pages, press spacebar and then tab to get to the options for what you want done there.

Hi.

1. Yes, pressing ctrl-T does open a new tab in Chrome.

2. To get to your bookmarks, open the Chrome menu. There are several ways to do this but I usually press alt-F, just as if you were opening the file menu. From there, either press the letter B or press down arrow until you get to Bookmarks.

Generally, I rarely use bookmarks as I prefer to type in a partial name of the site that I want to visit and, if I've visited it before, I can browse through a list of possible names.

As an example, suppose that I've visited Freedom Scientific's Web site in the past and I now want to visit it again. Regardless of whether I've bookmarked the site or not I can easily find it by doing the following.


1. Press either alt-D or ctrl-L to move to Chrome's address bar.

2. Begin by typing in the name or title of the site, such as FR or free.  Chrome will attempt to fill in the name and, more often than not, it will have filled in the correct name of the site, which I can verify by reading the current line by pressing insert-up arrow. If it has filled in the correct address press enter.

3. If Chrome doesn't get the name correctly just press down arrow and you will very likely find the site that you wanted. Keep pressing down arrow to navigate through a list of choices. Press enter and you should be taken to that site.

Am i assuming that to get to the main chrome menu, that you hit alt f?
Hitting alt by itself doesn't seem to go anywhere.

If you are in the address bar and hit alt, nothing happens, but if you are in web content it works fine.  At least that is how it is here.

If you are in the address bar, the PC cursor will be on.

Tab to get the Virtual Cursor


press alt - probably nothing will be spoken

use the down arrow or use first letter navigation - you will hear the items spoken

press ENTER on the desired item

Hi,

It is Control+T, but look at the title bar, it will say New Tab. To just get to the address bar though in the same tab is Control+L.

There's a whole topic on Chrome in JAWS help.

All the best

Steve

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?

It does, here is what Jaws says if I press the Alt key when I’m on a website:

 

Chrome button menu, ?Customize and control Google Chrome

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.

Hay Guys,  I am using the Latest Crome and JAWS 18 with Windows 7 and when I hit Alt to get into the menu in Crome, I can not seem to get out of the menu by hitting Alt again.  How do I exit the Crome menu?

I have to hit the Escape Key twice.  Just hitting it once gets the following from JAWS.  “Menu bar, Leaving Menu Bar, Google Crome Menu.”  I then hit Escape again and I get back to the page that I was on.  Any idea why?

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?

Hay Guys,  I am using the Latest Crome and JAWS 18 with Windows 7 and when I hit Alt to get into the menu in Crome, I can not seem to get out of the menu by hitting Alt again.  How do I exit the Crome menu?

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.
