Re: Asking a edge question.


Speaking of edge, has any one used Microsoft Edge preview? If I install it, does it install over the top of edge that comes with windows 10? I hear it's very accessible with jaws 2019.

I'm using JAWS 2019 on win 10 and finding that IE 11 is still the best
browser for me. I've had no luck with Edge.

I don't know why you've had that issue, but it definitely is not universal.

I just got done, two days ago, logging into my Paypal account; then sent a
payment to a friend; and logged back out using IE11 on my Windows 10
computer with Jaws.
For most things, I use Jaws 16.0.4468 because that is the last version to
work with Outlook Express.

I occasionally use the newest version of Jaws, but generally don't need to.

I would use it more, but for some reason, when I do, it breaks Jaws16
ability to work with Outlook Express without doing a repair of the older
Jaws installation.

I'm speculating here, but that might be due to the fact that when I updated
this PC to Windows 10, I installed 19 first before installing 16.

Hello to my fellow jaws 2019 users.
I was having a serious problem with logging into my paypal account.
Don't know why IE11 wouldn't allow me to use my e-mail and password to log
in, and before I closed out the old account it also wouldn't allow me to
go to the send item and click on the combo box for person's name, e-mail
address and or phone number.
I was able to go into the combo box and jaws confirmed only while typing
in the address.
But when I would go to tap my left and or right arrow keys to confirm that
I had the e-mail correct, I would hear nothing.
Plus since I couldn't fill out the field, the next button wouldn't allow
me to click on it, I could see the next button but since the field wasn't
filled in, I couldn't click on the next button.
I tried using both ie 11 and Google to access my paypal account.
Now for some surprising good news.
So, I tried Edge for the heck of it.
It went through like a knife through butter.
The only issue I had and had to have a pp operator help me out with it to
confirm my bank since it wasn't in the list and Edge wouldn't allow me to
add my bank to the list.
After the PP operator confirmed my bank for me, I was able to ship my fair
share to my cousin for a up coming event.
So I still don't have edge as my default browser just yet.
But I need to see how blind friendly it might be with my Role Playing game
a little later this afternoon.
So the jury is still out on Edge.
Would anyone have a e-mail for feedback to submit this letter to the MS
disability hot line?
Just something for jaws to also know about my frustration and finally my
success to make both jaws and edge more blind friendly.
Hope this feedback will help out others and I'll keep everyone in the loop
on my progress of using edge with jaws.
