Question /About Edge

Has anyone had difficulty with JAWS reading edit boxes? If so, what did you do about it. I am using the Beta version.

 

Hi,

Does this affect links list and other commands? How about using Tab to navigate around the screen?

If it is what I think is happening, it is because Microsoft (in their infinite wisdom) decided to enable native UI Automation implementation in Edge 79 beta (Chromium based). In short, you must disable this (I’ll write a detailed set of instructions in a few minutes for wider distribution), which can be done by visiting edge://flags, look for UI Automation, and choose “disabled” from the combo box and restart Edge.

Cheers,

Joseph
