Join Us for Using JAWS with Gmail in Standard View

Do you use Gmail at home, work, or school? Want access to all its features plus direct access to other Google Workspace applications? Join us Thursday, March 18 at noon Eastern Time for a webinar, “Using JAWS with Gmail in Standard View.”

What Is Standard View?

Many screen reader users are familiar with the Gmail Basic HTML View, which is navigated like a web page. This view loads by default when using Gmail with older browsers that aren’t compatible with the newer Standard View.

In December 2019, we provided a webmail instructional demonstration on using Gmail with JAWS in Basic HTML View. Stream or download this recording to learn more about this view.

Standard View offers an interface similar to that of other Google Workspace applications, and is navigated using keyboard commands specified by Google. It also provides access to the entire range of Gmail features, while Basic HTML View does not.

In Standard View, you will have access to features such as:

  • Spellcheck
  • Gmail tasks
  • Google Chat

Standard View loads by default in newer browsers that support it.

What We’ll Cover

During this webinar, we’ll show you how to:

  • Verify Gmail is set to Standard View
  • Turn on Gmail Keyboard Shortcuts in Settings
  • Move focus to and navigate folders
  • Open, read, and reply to messages
  • Create and send new messages
  • Archive, delete, and search for messages
