Re: JAWS losing focus?

Hi Ted & Dave,

The Google toolbar can be removed through the control panel. Also, the revo
uninstaller will remove any leftover remnants of a program / toolbar, such
as crap that a program will leave in the registry or in folders like the
application folder in your name or owner folder on the root of the C drive.
Take care.
Mike

You never can tell. I don't use them for anything save the occasional query,
and didn't even know the fool thing was there, until I check the list of
potential programs.

Ted,

Worth a try, but I suspect that revo uninstall just removes tool bars, and
not the entire address bar - favorites bar - search bar area.

Try one of the after-market uninstall programs like Revo Uninstall, an app
mentioned by several of us on this list. I somehow picked up a Google bar
(sounds like something with chocolate and nuts, doesn't it?), and that
program nixed it.

Is the address/search tar baby part of IE or Google? I have the same
problem of getting stuck. I did manage to remove it, but when I went to the
IE page again, it came back up. The JAWS cursor and ctrl-f6 methods do
work, but I'd really like to get rid of it completely. As far as I know, it
does nothing that can't be done in a less annoying way.

Yes, Happens to me a lot, even if the page is completely loaded. Alt+tab a
couple times, and even sometimes need to minimize IE and maximize again to
get it focused.

And I always have to press Ctrl+F6 to get out of the upper
address/favorites/search section. Very easy to get stuck in that tar-baby of
IE.

And yes, it's frustrating. In some particularly severe cases I even need to
use my JAWS cursor to find some text on the web page and press left click to
"wake up" the page into focus.

JAWS 13 and 14 both do this.

Using IE8. Windows 7.

I am not sure how to fix this. When I am in a window say reading the web,
JAWS would lose focus. I have to shift tab twice to get back to where I was.


Anyone else?

Thanks.
