Re: disabling forms mode

Hello Sandra,
When in forms mode does Jaws not go "Pop", when you arrow into an edit field, and a deeper sounding pop when you arrow out of it? And once you are in an edit field pressing tab moves you from one edit field to the next.
Cheers Kevin.

Subject: disabling forms mode

Hello all:

I am a JAWS 16 user who has used JAWS for years. I’ve always found myself frustrated to have to press Enter anytime I want to start or stop entries in Forms Mode; sighted people can just type their info in, without the extra steps. Is there a way I could disable Forms Mode so that I could just type in the needed info? I am a fast typist and find that I go faster than the field can appear or disappear! It would be nice if, upon reaching a form field, JAWS could just say, “to field,” then you immediately type a person’s name, for instance... I’ve always been mystified about the purpose of Forms
Mode: what issues was it designed to address? Any responses are appreciated.
