moderated Using Google docs

Hello,

I use the most recent version of Windows10 and Jaws2021. I have a url that takes me specifically to a google doc. Right now my default browser is MS edge. I couldn’t move around at all. I used the jaws cursor and it showed a control alt z to learn about other key strokes. I pressed those keys and nothing happened. There was another set of key strokes of control / and I’m thinking there was another key because nothing happened when I pressed those keys. I then used the url in Google Chrome and the same thing happened. Is there a way to get Google docs to work?

Thanks,

Kevin

FS has a guide up on it.  I'd read that and follow the instructions.

try insert-z to turn off the virtual cursor.

Hi,
I would recommend you use Google Chrome with Docs, although Edge may work;
I've never tried to use it with Docs, but yes when you go into the document,
make sure that you turn off the virtual cursor by pressing insert Z.
