The blind, once again; making sizzling progress with accessible technology
"One step forward, Four steps back"
I'm bout ready to throw out all my technology and go off the grid.
Folks, it wasn't that long ago; when we didn't have to spend good money for
the latest updates, only to find numerous nonaccessibilities! I'm fed up!

I never got Chrom to work for me. I still use IE 11. Firefox hasn't worked
for me either.

I used Chrome on the Social Security Web site, and it missed some
crucial radio buttons. As a result, I got locked out of my account.
Yet, when I went into IE to do the same thing, everything showed up.
So, go figure. We need to use all the browsers available to us. One
size does not fit all.--Matthew Chao

I agree that all three browsers are now needed, but I�d like to
reinforce Chrome as first choice for primary browser. I was a very
reluctant adopter of Chrome, as I made clear when I argued with another
lister that it wasn�t completely accessible. In fact, it wasn�t at the
time. After my first experiment or two with it, I went back to IE11. But
IE11 works with increasingly fewer websites. Meanwhile, Chrome�s
accessibility kept improving.

Firefox is a mystery to me. One moment JAWS catches up to it, the next
JAWS and Firefox are incompatible. Right now, there�s one website I
regularly visit that works only with the current version of Firefox. The
daily video at that website can�t be found with either chrome or IE11,
but its� right there with Firefox.

Chrome works mostly like IE and Firefox. All the navigation commands
work the same. The big difference is its menu structure. But once I
figured out how to gain fast access to the favorites that I�d
transferred over from IE, everything else was minor.

The menu structure is navigated by a combination of the alt key and h
for headers. I have Mike B to thank for pointing that out. So, you press
the alt key to enter the file menu. Then you press h until you find a
heading that might be relevant to what you want. Then you arrow down
through the options.

If I need to explain favorites, I�ll gladly do so when it isn�t so
and I don�t have a ton of other things to do.

I have found that I need all three.

Different browsers for different pages.

Usually Chrome works well, I just don't prefer it because it is
substantially different.

What works better fire fox or chrome. Using latest jaws 2018. I was
having problems reading our local paper and they suggested that I do not
use I.E. but fire fox or chrome and preferably chrome. I have not
installed it yet. Just wondering if it is worth trying?
