firefox is now chrome


 

Hi.

Ok guys decided to cut my losses and switched to chrome.

What an experience change.

Its true I need to do a bit more configging but just about every file just saves now.

And access wize there are accessibility addons.

For me noscript doesn't come but the rest.

First https everywhere, privacy badger and ublock origin exist thats good.

I use download notifier for sounds, and google sound effects tweaked so it doesn't make sounds for everything I do key typing scroling down pages, etc.

However its better than the crappy addon I have on firefox.

Its got accessibility features and its fully configurable, maybe ms should take a leaf out of google's book for their stuff because headings for everything.

The only issues I have is when removing addon extentions I have to hit enter twice as there is a lot of unknown and the same with adding extentions tab once and hit enter.

I also don't care for the top down approach of the google app store.

However I am fully setup and while it could be better, I do believe that firefox as it stands is history with me.

Noscript, well its not really important right now, everything works as needed.

I do feel sad leaving firefox though.

Hi.

Ok, got an addon called download sound this works for downloads, sadly I
don't get when sites open like navigation sounds, but if anything else
the download sound is the important event sound is a bit loud though.

So does chrome have a reader at on, rather like what you get with Safari either on a Mac or on the phone? The android version of chrome doesn’t have that, and it’s a huge disadvantage in my opinion. I’m guessing that the desktop version either has it built in or at least has an ad on.

Hello Mary,


Chrome has an extension called Chromevox which acts as a screen reader. NVDA also works with Chrome, though.

Thanks, Sally. I know about chromevox, and I’m not interested. I will use it with the regular windows screen reader. I was talking about the reader mode, where you get just the article you want to read and not all the intervening junk that shows up.

By reader add on, do you mean the feature that removes extraneous material such as blocs of links from articles?  There is nothing directly in Chrome that does that.  I tried an add on that does it awhile ago, but there was an accessibility problem, I don't remember what it was now and I couldn't use it.  others may know of a way to use it or another add on.

Yes, I mean exactly what you described, Jean. And it sounds like there might be one activated with control shift l.

The nice thing about Firefox is that it has a built in function for this (alt+control_r) wihtout out having to hunt for an additional extension.

That said, the Just Read extension in Chrome seems to be working fine. There’s a bunch more stuff you can do to customise and whatnot, but all I care about is quickly getting rid of all the clutter on a site for a fast article read.

I believe someone else mentioned another extension, but I’ve only so far used this one. Shift+control+l is easy enough for me.

The only issue I did have was connecting to my bt sync server, and my router in fact any device with an ip address.

I got a lot of unknowns, I assume it was a security dialog, I had to go to the address bar, shift tab once, hit the information button then allow this site always then hit reload, then it let it go through.

I do wish that security dialogs and extention add dialogs got read chrome dropps into a chrome legacy window instead of a document window and screen readers can't read legacy windows so well.

Hi.

Ok guys decided to cut my losses and switched to chrome.

What an experience change.

Its true I need to do a bit more configging but just about every

And access wize there are accessibility addons.

For me noscript doesn't come but the rest.

First https everywhere, privacy badger and ublock origin exist thats
good.

I use download notifier for sounds, and google sound effects tweaked
so it doesn't make sounds for everything I do key typing scroling
down pages, etc.

However its better than the crappy addon I have on firefox.

Its got accessibility features and its fully configurable, maybe ms
should take a leaf out of google's book for their stuff because
headings for everything.

The only issues I have is when removing addon extentions I have to
hit enter twice as there is a lot of unknown and the same with
adding extentions tab once and hit enter.

I also don't care for the top down approach of the google app store.

However I am fully setup and while it could be better, I do believe
that firefox as it stands is history with me.

Noscript, well its not really important right now, everything works
as needed.

I do feel sad leaving firefox though.

Hi.

the download sound is the important event sound is a bit loud though.

Chromevox has a long history, back when Chrome book computers first started, they accessed all their aps through the web interface of Chrome browser. ie it was not running windows. They built in a rudamentary screenreader to help people its always been very basic and I have never bothered with it as it was really only relevant in the above context as soon Chrome implimented apis for its windows version which allowed other screenreaders to be used.
