Microsoft Edge in NVDA 16.4 and 17.3


Walker, Michael E
 

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

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.

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

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

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.
