Re: Chrome Browser

Chris Mullins

This is what I found on a forum site:

1. Go to the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar
2. Activate Settings
3. Activate Show advanced settings
4. In the Privacy section, deselect the "Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar" checkbox

Keep in mind that the address bar shows matches from your browsing history, in addition to predictions. If you don't want to see matches from your browsing history, you must clear that as well.
Beyond that there is nothing more you can do. It is either all or nothing. You cannot modify the behavior of how you dismiss suggestions. Suggestions and autocomplete are the same service.

In addition, someone mentioned that it was apain to have to clear browsing history all the time to stop the auto-complete behaviour and suggested using incognito mode which doesn't preserve browsing history.

How fast are you typing? If you either type quickly or turn off speech, you
won't hear anything. You likely know this but do you know that anytime you
want to interrupt speech, you can just keep typing anywhere? You will
probably get a solution but I'm discussing this as a general principle. I
never bother with such settings because I type fast enough that I don't hear
such information but if I ever start to hear it, maybe because I'm typing
more slowly, I just keep typing.

Has anybody solved this issue with chrome? I have every predictive thing
turned off, but when I start typing in the address bar, I hear stuff
like, suppose I'm typing in mandolin cafe. I type an m, I hear "m
andolessons dot com", I type an 'a' and then maybe it thinks I mean
something else so I hear "mathmaze dot com selected instead", and so on.
It's really pretty annoying, particularly since I don't want it to do
that. Just let me type a URL and be done with it. Quit trying to figure
out where I might want to go, like I told you to.

Yes, it works well, and Chrome is so much faster than other browsers.

Is the Chrome browser accessible with NVDA? Is it worth trying?
