Hi Brian,
focus mode is just a different term used for what JAWS would call forms mode. Every screen reader has slightly differing naming conventions. So, for example, NVDA calls the virtual cursor mode, i.e. the mode for reading a webpage, browse mode, and does not refer to forms mode as such, but calls that one focus mode instead.

          For my edification, what is "focus mode," exactly?   I don't think I've ever heard that term used and I have no idea what that means.  Of course, I had no idea what Forms Mode meant, either, since it's been in "On by Default" mode in all the versions of JAWS I've touched over the last several years, but actually knew how to use it thinking what I was doing was using the Quick Navigation Keys (since a great many overlap).

          Thanks in advance.
