Re: Can't Enter Text Into Forms Mode Field

I thought I had tried the space bar before, but just to be sure, I tried it
again. Still no luck.

Again, I get the higher click that indicates I'm in forms mode, but no text
gets entered when I type.

Hitting F5 to refresh the screen doesn't help either.

This might sound stupid but for the past year I hit the space bar instead of
the enter key to get forms mode. Good luck!

Hello, everyone.



I'm still having issues typing characters into the edit box when on the
internet with my home Windows 7 PC.



I can arrow down or tab until I hear the forms mode sound, but when I type,
nothing gets entered into the edit box.



I had someone sighted check, and nothing gets entered onto the screen when I
do the typing in forms mode, even though the sound indicates I'm in forms
mode.



I find the issue both in Internet Explorer and in Firefox. And, I have
tried performing searches on several different web sites where info needs to
be entered into the search box.





Is there a Jaws or other setting I should check to troubleshoot the issue?



For the record, I'm using Jaws 14 on this particular computer.



Thank you!
