Subject: [nvda] Microsoft Edge is Starting to Grow
Well with Joseph's announcement about the
NVDA Try Build, I decided to
invest more time in using Microsoft's
applications on my Windows 10 PC.
Started things off with the Microsoft Edge
Not sure if it's the new Try-Build or a lot
of changes have recently
been made to Edge overall, but it works
pretty damn well with NVDA.
NVDA reads All of the push notification bar
messages automatically. It
also informs me when the page has fully
loaded (Loading complete.) Most
of the NVDA quick navigation key shortcuts
do work to quickly jump
through web content.
Love... love... love... the Reading View
([Ctrl]+[Shift]+[r]) feature of
Edge. This alone is starting to make me a

I hate to say it, but managing Favorites in
Edge is much much easier to

The only problem I'm having is when I find
myself sometimes being placed
in the toolbar icons pain of Edge. I
quickly jump back to the web page

Curious why they don't implement a shortcut
key to display that entire
pain (Similar to [Ctrl]+[i] for Favorites,
[Ctrl]+[h] for History, and
[Ctrl]+[j] for Downloads?) I could simply
hit the [Escape] key to
hide/dismiss it again.
Reading Joseph's recent email regarding the
Try-Build of NVDA being
released and us really caring about the
changes Microsoft is
implementing all the time to make their
line of Windows applications
more accessible got me thinking.
Why can't I give their programs a chance?
Yes, in the past I've
experienced a lot of problems with their
applications. That doesn't mean
they've not made efforts to correct things
(Due to feedback from Insider
testers and bug reports.)
Time for me to start using the free tools
Microsoft has developed and
stop searching for replacements. And I mean
all of the tools (Even the
bug report and feedback submission tools.)
This is key to helping
Microsoft fix things they may not yet be
By the way, if you want a nice resource
listing Microsoft Edge keyboard
It really has morphed into a pretty good
browser. I'm going to start
using it more.
