Hi,
For JAWS: you can test by using public betas.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi Joseph,

How can I become one of those testers who reports my experiences? For my
work, I see myself possibly testing Edge compatibility with web applications
I help develop.

Hi,
It'll also depend on which release of Windows 10 you've got.
Until last year, NV Access and others said people should use Edge for pilot
testing purposes. This is no longer the case now: you can use Edge just like
any other browser. You can use first letter navigation, elements list (much
enhanced in the next release of NVDA) and what not.
Regarding JAWS 2018 and Edge: yes and no. JAWS 2018 beta will work with Edge
in Windows 10 Version 1703 (build 15063/Creators Update), but it won't work
properly in Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update). Microsoft and VFO are aware
of this problem and are working hard to resolve issues reported by testers.
Cheers,
Joseph

Master snap of Edge? What I am looking for is if I need it for work, will
Edge function with NVDA reasonably well, or should I use JAWS 2018 or
Narrator?

Thank you,
Mike

Before I managed to blow up my win 10 machine... don't ask.. the latter
seemed faster though I used a master snap of it not the actual release
version at the time. I just did not like Edge myself, preferring Firefox
usability wise.

Hi, how well have you found these NVDA versions to work with Edge?
