Hi Katheryn, I'm using JAWS 12 with Firefox 4 just fine. Which build of JAWS 12, and which version number of Firefox 4 are you using? Thanks.

You need a development build to test the latest accessibility features.

Is there a specific dev version or nightly build I should try? Where can I get it?

However, at least for me, not all things work correctly yet. First, some larger edit boxes don't work. You can type in them, but jaws doesn't read anything. I think this was documented in the chrome accessibility wiki article. Second, jaws doesn't read flash objects at all. Third, sometimes larger pages are not loaded into the virtual buffer and I have to load the same address again. Refresh doesn't work, I have to press alt+d and enter. Finally, some pages are not updated in the virtual buffer. After I click a link, the page doesn't change for jaws, even though the title does. Those happen with google chrome 13.0.772.0 dev-m and jaws 12.0.1158. Despite these problems, I'm also very excited about chrome's accessibility improvement and hope it will soon be fully accessible. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Sina Bahram" <sbahram@xxxxxxxxx><mailto:sbahram@xxxxxxxxx> To: <jawsscripts@xxxxxxxxxxxxx><mailto:jawsscripts@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>; <programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx><mailto:programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>; <blindwebbers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx><mailto:blindwebbers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Sunday, May 29, 2011 8:08 AM Subject: Jaws 12 works with Google Chrome Sorry for the cross posting, but as this fundamentally affects, or at least can, how most of us interact with the web, I thought I'd share. I fired up the latest Google chrome, as I do from time to time, to play around with it, and I noticed that jaws 12 started reading me the page. First I thought, oh cute, the virtual cursor recognition finally got smart enough to recognize the chrome window as non-static text, but then I said, hmm, that's reading awfully well, so I hit h and navigated by header, and I went to different URLs, and they all read correctly. Further investigation shows that jaws is aliasing chrome to Firefox. The Firefox scripts, in fact, are what is loaded if you do an insert+q. So, apparently no longer is NVDA the only windows screen reader that supports chrome. Good to see, I thought. Btw, I checked, and sure enough, the line: chrome=Firefox appears in the default confignames.ini shipping with jaws. Would have been nice to know ... just a thought.
