Hi Philip Kiff,

Thank you for your information , but I am not able see the information for Chrome & Edge browsers in the reply chain.

Chrome & Edge :

1. I am using the following combination "Chrome with NVDA" because In NVDA website they mentioned that they are supporting chrome along with the FF.

2. And also I have doubt, among IE and Edge which one is the best for Accessibility testing and what is screen reader combination for this.

Hi Sreekar,

The WebAIM list has a search function you can use to see if topics have
been covered before:

There have been many discussions about the best combinations of screen
readers and browsers, for e.g.:
Thread: Screen Reader Version & Browser Version Combination Matrix

The best combination depends on several factors - including especially
your target audience and what capacity you have for testing. Maybe your
combination is right for you.

Lots of folks seem to test with two or three of the following combinations:
JAWS/Internet Explorer
