Re: Annoying Jaws behavior with tabbing back and forth in browser


Same exact problem for me with my 32-bit Windows 7, IE 11 and JAWS 15. Very
irritating, and even trying to use the JAWS cursor doesn't break the

However if you have NVDA, I've had some success with launching that and
getting JAWS unstuck. Weird, I know, but better than dumping the whole web
site and starting over in some cases.

I also sure do hope JAWS 16 irons out some of this serious stuff.

Subject: Annoying Jaws behavior with tabbing back and forth in browser

Hello list,

This is something that I've been dealing with for a while now, but hadn't
gotten around to asking about it before.

When I'm in a browser, I sometimes find myself stuck between the address bar
and my favorites bar in IE for example. All the tabbing back and forth
doesn't help to get me out of it and I eventually have to close the browser
all together and relaunch to have access to the actual web content. This
happens too where if I press the alt+n command to access the information
bar. Again, in IE. I am using Jaws 15, but this also happened in earlier
versions of Jaws. I haven't' had too much opportunity to play with the new
JFW 16 beta so I don't know if this is something that is less of an issue
with the new release.

Does anyone else have to deal with this and if so, do they know how to
either fix it or at least make it so that they can get back to the webpage?
