I have not heard much about google chrome, but I have used opera in the past. 
What does google chrome do for us?

  Thanks for mentioning it Bill! How about google chrome. I love that browser, 
but I cannot use it with jaws only with N***. So it will be nice tho have that 
option. Also, how about opera if google is not an option. That would be great.

  Peter, here's my thinking and I hope others will correct me if I'm wrong.
  A website is not an application. 
  the applications involved would be your browser--i.e. or firefox, or chrome.

  For that matter, google docs would not be an application either.

  Just my  thoughts.

    Hi, for many blind people dating is quite difficult and many dating 
websites don’t seem too accessible, and I have seen a few posts from people 
trying to get various websites working. I’d be very grateful if the website was made accessible in some way. It is pretty accessible 
at the mom            ent so shouldn’t require too much work, but there are a 
lot of extra links and information you have to try and bypass to get to the 
useful stuff.

    I may be the only one who wants that website accessible, but I hope not and 
I think lots would benefit from a fully accessible dating site where it’s not 
just disabled people.

    Hi folks,
    As my 32nd birthday approaches, I think I am going to make a habit of 
picking one new application per year to make jaws accessible. Picking Rhapsody 
was not an easy task, but it taught me many things about an application that 
seems next to impossible to make behave. I am taking off this summer from 
school and will have the time to code a new application. Rhapsody Blind was a 
test to see if I could pull it off, and it worked. I selfishly chose the first 
one, now I'm looking for the popular vote on what you might want. I probably 
won't start until this semester is over at the end of May, so this gives plenty 
of time to decide. It would be a good idea to chat among each other and find 
out what is needed or just plain want for entertainment purposes. So, let's 
open up the floor and hear some suggestions.
