moderated Strange issue with JAWS and Chrome


Rahul Bajaj
 

i,

I use JAWS 2021, Chrome version 92, ending with 131. I have been
recently facing the following issue.

On Google, when I put in a search request, on the search results page,
the list of results entirely disappears after a few seconds. As in, I
get the full list of results initially, and then it vanishes for JAWS,
even though I am told sighted folk can see it there. For me, it says
about so-and-so results, search results, and then directly related
searches.

This has only been happening for a couple of days. Any thoughts?

Rahul

Hi, Rahul. I suspect that Chrome is using some sort of search filter, based on your past browsing history, and that your results are being sorted accordingly. Here's what I would try first.

1. Open Chrome.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus DELETE to enter your history.
3. Delete the items in the following categories in history, using All Time as the range,

Browsing history
Download history
Cookies and other site data
Cached images and files
Autofill form data

I would not delete passwords and sign in data. It is up to you whether or not you wish to delete Site Settings. You can always reconfigure these later if you think something there might be interfering with your google search.

Greetings:

When running a search through Google with Chrome, I have found that it helps to press the plus key on the number pad to verify the virtual cursor is actually on. If I hear JAWS say PC cursor, I have to press tab once. Why this happens is a mystery to me, but if I use this approach, I get focus on the web page so that JAWS can interpret it sooner.

Best regards,

Curtis Chong

Yes, I've seen that one too, on many websites, not just search.

You load a page, then have to press tab before the virtual cursor comes on.

All the best
