If you have the Jaws 2018 April update installed, then performance with 
Firefox 60 is significantly improved over previous versions of either 
the screen reader or the browser. More improvements should land with the 
Jaws May update when it's released.

There is a stand-alone version of Chatzilla. It's almost exactly the 
same as the browser plugin, except for the fact it doesn't require a 
browser to be used.
