Re: Some issues coming between Google Chrome and NVDA

Gene
 

I believe that Chrome usually fixes things as well.  But my impression is that problems get to production versions that should have been corrected during beta testing more often and that are more serious than Firefox problems that may crop up from time to time.  Proper testing and correction would get rid of such problems long before the production versions are released.  What I'm saying about Firefox versus Chrome is an impression.  it may be wrong and others may wish to comment.  But that's my impression from trying both programs as updated for many months.

One of the main reasons I'm not using anything else but firefox at the
moment is all this now it workds now it won't stuff. They obviously do not
test their new versions very well from what i can tell. At least firefox do
fix things like they fixed the navigation sounds not working in 47, and its
fine in the later versions, aand lists work properly in web pages as well.

Only problem is the Qube hasn't been supported for a long time now. I've removed it here but keep using TW Blue.

Set Facebook aside. Test the language lists in Google Translate by Chrome, and compare their pronounciation with the one tested by Mozilla Firefox. I hope that you will face the difference as to the pronounciation of the language lists. Let me know what you have faced.

Re: Some issues coming between Google Chrome and NVDA

Dejan Ristic
 

I do it, friend, but how to handle both the source and target list of the languages in Google Translate by using Chrome when they are not pronounced? I do not care for Facebook when I translate, but I am crestfallen when I experience what I did not experience before as to Chrome and Google Translate. QTranslate is good, but not so good as Google Translate when it comes down to examples and terms explained

when I do translations.

Re: Some issues coming between Google Chrome and NVDA

I've many problems too, but I use next for NVDA. the thing is Chrome sometimes works fine, sometimes it doesn't. So, I think one thing is supported, other thing is partially supported or supported when Chromium team doesn't change things.

Note that the evaluations of how accessible is the product depends of the user... I use chrome because my chromecast need it and well, because I know many programs that are less usable than chrome, but I can't say it works correctly, only that it is usable.

Is something similar to the accessibility of windows 10 aniversary... the insiders are happy with the accessibility provided, I think it works fine, but many end users think that some things don't work.


Regards,

mk.

But, let's consider that these issues did not exist before. Do you agree with the fact that some major changes in Chrome can be done, so that the relation between NVDA and Chrome may be improved as far as the instance of accessibility is concerned?

Re: Some issues coming between Google Chrome and NVDA

Failure of Chrome to remain accessible with two Google apps does not render it unsupported by NVDA.  This may be more of Googles routine breaking of things.  They seem to break something about every six months in production versions.  Here we are, somewhere between four and six months since the last thing that was broken. 
 
This routine breaking of things and not correcting the problem or problems until after they reach production versions is hardly a demonstration of a proper commitment.  That's one reason I don't use Chrome as my main browser.  I've seen too many completely unnecessary problems in production versions over time.  That the problems are usually corrected doesn't mitigate the fact that they reach production versions.
