HI Barry:
Chrome does have some accessibility with screenreaders by running the chrome accessibility extensions but support isn't sufficiently advanced to use it as your only browser if you're a screenreader user especially if you do anything but basic browsing.

Hi all

My apologies if this one has been done to death before, but if it has, I
missed it.

Is Google Chrome totally accessible with Jaws 11 and is it worth changing
from IE8 to Chrome?
