Re: web browsers & Jaws 14

Adrian Spratt


Like you, I'm using Win7 and JAWS 14. I don't have IE10, but I did the test anyway in IE9 and Firefox 20.

While in IE9, I followed the "Dog products" link, and JAWS verbalized nothing. For a moment, I thought my system had frozen.

I then tried to access the page with Firefox, and this time had complete success. The links list came up, and I was able to arrow up and down through it.

Firefox updated just in the past 24 hours to version 20. I'd already found it made a difference. You might check your FF version with control-insert-v and, if need be, upgrade to 20.

Still, that doesn't solve the IE problem, other than to say the page doesn't work well in IE9, as well as 10.

Subject: web browsers & Jaws 14

I seem to be the only one having problems with Jaws 14 and IE 10 and some web pages.
Today, I decided to install mazilla Fire Fox on my computer to see if I could use it instead of IE 10 on bothersome pages.
I am also using Windows 7, 64 bit.
The very same web pages that give me grief in IE 10 do exactly the same thing in Fire Fox.
I’m wondering now if there might be a setting in Jaws, or the browsers, that may be the problem.
Of course, that takes in a lot of territory.
Here is another web site that gives me trouble, in addition to the search results pages on eBay.
Now, I can go to the home page, no problem. I can then enter on the dog products link, and that page comes up, Jaws might even announce it, but it doesn’t work properly at all.
For example, if I try to bring up the links list, and sit back and wait, it may appear. If it does, Jaws moves very sluggishly, if it does anything.
In mazilla Fire Fox, I usually just get “no links,” “no form field,s,” “no headings.” I think you get the idea.
If anything occurs to anyone, I’ll give it a try.
Then, if I want to go to toys
