Status of Chrome Accessibility

Robert Spangler

Hello:

 

Is anyone successfully using Chrome as their full-time browser?  Every time I check it out, the accessibility of it is less than optimal.  I just took a tour through the settings window and attempted to sign in.  The virtual buffer was blank, tabbing around produced nothing and, now, I’m attempting to close the window; nothing.  Attempting to navigate the about window, to discover what version I’m running, just says, “About:Blank.”

 

It doesn’t seem as though accessibility has gotten far with Chrome, which is a shame since Firefox is a huge memory hog and I’d really like to use a browser with a smaller footprint.

 

Thanks,

Robert

All of these issues were fixed and are live in latest Chrome Canary builds: https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/canary.html

Actually I still get the empty buffer problem, and I'm pretty sure I'm on the dev channel. I'll look again on Monday.

Not sure about Dev channel, but Canary builds work fine.

Dev and canary are different channels. Think on dev like the masters branch of NVDA, and canary like next branch.

Re: Status of Chrome Accessibility

Drew Mochak
In reply to this post by Robert Spangler
Just restart NVDA when that happens and you'll get your buffer back. It's annoying and needs to be fixed but not as bad as it seems at first.

This is the only issue in Chrome that I encounter on a daily basis; while I don't use it as my main, I used to, and could again. I think it has a bad rep that is mostly undeserved, so I'm also curious what other issues people experience.

Re: Status of Chrome Accessibility

Robert Spangler

Firefox has its issues but it’s consistently accessible and things don’t break often.  If accessibility in Chrome gets broken on and off, then it isn’t worth it.  It is faster and less bulky, so it would be nice if it could stay accessible.  It’s had these issues though for as long as I can remember, so I’m not holding my breath.

Accessibility in recent Chrome Canary builds has been improving a lot and it seems very stable.

  It is faster and less bulky, so it would be nice if it could stay accessible.

Aside from the items you mentioned that are fixed in Canary - what's not accessible? 

  It’s had these issues though for as long as I can remember, so I’m not holding my breath.

DId you try Canary link I shared?

I just installed the extension in the way I install anything else., The only part that wouldn't read out without object navigation is the part that asks are you sure? But you have two options when tabbing... add extension or cancel. It isn't that hard to figure out what you are supposed to do….

Re: Status of Chrome Accessibility

mk360
Is true, and obviously I installed it without more problems mostly because I know what will ask the browser. The thing is I find this problem, some people report other problems, etc etc... that is, chrome is accessible and works for an experienced user, but I can't recomend it, less of all canary (I don't recomend NVDA Next branch too, and next is really accessible) over Firefox or IE.

Regards,
mk.

It doesn’t seem as though accessibility has gotten far with Chrome, which is a shame since Firefox is a huge memory hog and I’d really like to use a browser with a smaller footprint.

Re: Status of Chrome Accessibility

In reply to this post by Kevin Chao
Hello,
I second that. Chrome Canary is wonderful now. There are still a few issues here and there, however those have been reported and I have faith that they will be squashed. Browsing and using Canary even this week's build of canary is substantially better than last week.

Accessibility in recent Chrome Canary builds has been improving a lot and it seems very stable.

  It is faster and less bulky, so it would be nice if it could stay accessible.

Aside from the items you mentioned that are fixed in Canary - what's not accessible? 

  It’s had these issues though for as long as I can remember, so I’m not holding my breath.

DId you try Canary link I shared?

Trying canary again... I tried to add google cast but only I can read the dialog to confirm installation with object navigation. So, again chrome is not so good... Well... I'm not experiencing the problems with firefox 45.1...

This is the only issue in Chrome that I encounter on a daily basis; while I don't use it as my main, I used to, and could again. I think it has a bad rep that is mostly undeserved, so I'm also curious what other issues people experience.

Re: Status of Chrome Accessibility

Is it not possible to make Canary the default browser?

It does seem to work a lot better.  How long does it take for fixes to be pushed into the stable builds?

Re: Status of Chrome Accessibility

Nimer Jaber
In reply to this post by Brandon Keith Biggs
Hello,

1. Make sure that you have installed Google Chrome Canary from https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/canary.html
2. If you already have it installed, open it.
3. Navigate to the omnibox by pressing alt+D
4. Type <a class="moz-txt-link-rfc2396E" href="about:chrome">"about:chrome" without the quotes.
5. Check and make sure that Canary is updated. Reading the web page will tell you if Canary is up-to-date or not. Signing in most definitely works now. As do other things that were affected by that bug, such as using the Hangouts Chrome app.

Thanks.

Hello,
In Version 49.0.2623.110 m
the sign in is not accessible. NVDA says embedded object and blank. I can tab 5 times and I hear "sign in to chrome" and it just circles, 5 silent tabs and a sign in button.
Thanks,

Re: Status of Chrome Accessibility

Drew Mochak
In reply to this post by mk360
If you're recommending IE over anything, you're wrong, but that's a tangent. The suggestion isn't that everyday users should switch to Canary; this is a thread for finding Chrome bugs, so if a bug has been fixed already there's no point in discussing it further. What issues have you found when using Chrome, that have yet to be fixed in ANY branch?

The thing is I find this problem, some people report other problems, etc etc... that is, chrome is accessible and works for an experienced user, but I can't recomend it, less of all canary (I don't recomend NVDA Next branch too, and next is really accessible) over Firefox or IE.

Hello,
In Version 49.0.2623.110 m
the sign in is not accessible. NVDA says embedded object and blank. I can tab 5 times and I hear "sign in to chrome" and it just circles, 5 silent tabs and a sign in button.
Thanks,

Is it not possible to make Canary the default browser?

It does seem to work a lot better.  How long does it take for fixes to be pushed into the stable builds?

Hello,

No, the sign in does not work on my end either.

Thanks,

Hello:

 

Is anyone successfully using Chrome as their full-time browser?  Every time I check it out, the accessibility of it is less than optimal.  I just took a tour through the settings window and attempted to sign in.  The virtual buffer was blank, tabbing around produced nothing and, now, I’m attempting to close the window; nothing.  Attempting to navigate the about window, to discover what version I’m running, just says, “<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="About:Blank.”">About:Blank.”

 

It doesn’t seem as though accessibility has gotten far with Chrome, which is a shame since Firefox is a huge memory hog and I’d really like to use a browser with a smaller footprint.

 

Thanks,

Robert

Re: Status of Chrome Accessibility

In reply to this post by Drew Mochak
See my previows messages. And no, I don't recomend IE, or not with NVDA... in the past with JAWS, but I don't know what is the status of JAWS now.

If you're recommending IE over anything, you're wrong, but that's a tangent. The suggestion isn't that everyday users should switch to Canary; this is a thread for finding Chrome bugs, so if a bug has been fixed already there's no point in discussing it further. What issues have you found when using Chrome, that have yet to be fixed in ANY branch?

Is true, and obviously I installed it without more problems mostly because I know what will ask the browser. The thing is I find this problem, some people report other problems, etc etc... that is, chrome is accessible and works for an experienced user, but I can't recomend it, less of all canary (I don't recomend NVDA Next branch too, and next is really accessible) over Firefox or IE.

Trying canary again... I tried to add google cast but only I can read the dialog to confirm installation with object navigation.
I just installed the extension in the way I install anything else., The only part that wouldn't read out without object navigation is the part that asks are you sure? But you have two options when tabbing... add extension or cancel. It isn't that hard to figure out what you are supposed to do…. Because then I was able to just go to share my display and it opened up like a web page. I had to select my Chromecast, but that was it., And that was accessible.. 
So, again chrome is not so good... Well... I'm not experiencing the problems with firefox 45.1...

Just restart NVDA when that happens and you'll get your buffer back. It's annoying and needs to be fixed but not as bad as it seems at first.

This is the only issue in Chrome that I encounter on a daily basis; while I don't use it as my main, I used to, and could again. I think it has a bad rep that is mostly undeserved, so I'm also curious what other issues people experience.
