moderated JAWS freezes in Google DOcs


Rahul Bajaj
 

Hi,

I se JAWS 2021. WHen I open documents in GOogle Docs, after reading a particular paragraph, JAWS freezes and stops talking. Nothing happens when I go up or down with the arrow keys. I have to press alt+tab, go elsewhere, and then come back, to make JAWS read out the document. How can i fix this?

This sounds like a problem several people, including me, have noted. JAWS isn't freezing, it is loosing the focus, this seems to only happen in Edge and Chrome. And as far as I know, there is no fix except to do what you are already doing.

JaWS 2021 for me was almost unusable.

2022 works a lot better.

Thanks,

Justin

I agree that JAWS 2022 is better than 2021 but 2022 still has the problem. Since it appears to only affect Chromium based browsers, we believe it is because of something that the Chromium engine is doing.
