What's wrong with the standard google page? It always seemed far more 
accessible than almost anything else as mainstream out there. Not trying to be 
an arse, I'm just genuinely wondering why we would need an "accessible google" 
search engine?

  I supplied the address in answer to a query because I happened to have it. I 
don't use Google Accessible myself. When I tested it in the past, I found some 
important information was missing on the search results page. what that was, I 
don't remember, but in addition to the "lucky" button, which I also don't use, 
I notice now that Google Accessible doesn't show how many hits a search gets.

  What new features does the new Google have that the other Google didn't?
  Other than NOT having an I'm feeling lucky button?
  Thanks,

  How would folks get to the Google accessible search engine, if they wanted 
to? 

  Glad to know modified chess is still out there for the blind.   I learned it 
in my teens, but haven't played in 30years or more.  Something about 
discovering girls interfered with me concentrating on chess. lol

  Dear Cy,
  Yes, I wonder if a lot of JAWS users are simply not aware of the "Google 
Accessible" search engine?

  As I said, it works perfectly for me, and well ... Perfect is good enough!

    Hello Friends,

    I have been using "Google Accessible" for some time, and had not had any 
problems with it.

     

    I find it 10 times better than the standard "Google" search engine.

      this is just me, but I never never use Google. I use msn.com for all 
searches, and it works fine with JAWS up to 12.  Not sure if I've done it since 
I got JAWS 12, but that was only a week ago.

      Same thing happening to me. I use jaws 12 but it has also happened with 
jaws 10 and 11. Really annoying.

        All,

        Sometimes when I go to google I have to reload the page because I find 
that when I go into forms mode and try to type nothing will type. Anyone else 
have this issue? It's happened with a few versions of jaws I have and it only 
seems to be on the google search engine. Currently using jaws12.

        Not sure if it's a jaws issue or IE.

        Troy
