Re: IE 11 Successfully Installed Here, Well, Sort Of

If I were you, I'd have FS do another tandem session.
I used to have that type of thing happen when I seemed to be stuck at the address bar area. Another problem I had was getting stuck somewhere with the forms mode on and not be able to move out of it.
I now keep my forms mode to manual. I still have some slow moving web pages, but only with very busy ones, that is ones with many links.
Really, there's got to be a solution, so get back with either FS, Microsoft disability or both.

Unfortunately, I can’t get your strategy to work.

When I get into a form, and use insert escape, followed by insert 8 on
the numpad, and then hit enter to enter the text, Jaws verbalizes the
text, but the PC cursor doesn’t seem to move.

Then, if I hit the tab key to go into the next edit field, I get into a
tab about the Bing search engine, which is obviously outside of the main
web page in which I’m working.

This happens on several web sites that I have tried so far, and was the
same problem with IE 11 I encountered last Summer.

When I encounter this problem with IE11, an insert-escape refresh
enables JAWS to verbalize the data entry. Keeping focus on the edit
field, I then press insert-numpad 8 to read the content. Otherwise, I
don’t have the same problem. Is there a specific website?

Hello, everyone.

As some of you may remember, I have been reluctant to move from IE 10 to
IE 11, because of problems I had last summer with IE 11 in terms of
being able to enter text into text boxes on web sites that I access.

However, since I now have been forced to upgrade to IE 11 due to no
Microsoft support for IE 10, I decided to take the leap today, and
install IE 11.

I installed IE 11 from the .exe file that I downloaded and saved from
the Microsoft web site, and the installation seemed to go well.

I also was pleasantly surprised to find that my internet favorites had
all been preserved, even though I had saved my favorites folder as a
back-up, in case something went wrong.

However, this is where the good news ends.

I’m now back to having the same text-entry problems I had last summer.
I had my sighted wife watch while I ttried entering text into edit
boxes, and she tells me that my main cursor does not move when I try to
do so. As I enter text, Jaws speaks the text, but it is not entered
into the web form. I have Jaws set to manually enter forms mode, so I
know I’m in forms mode, since I get the higher-sounding click whenever I
hit enter.

I have made sure all add-ons, extensions, and toolbars are disabled,
but so far, no joy!

Last summer when I had this issue, I worked with Freedom Scientific
Technical Support, with the Microsoft Accessibility hotline staff, and
with another well-experienced Jaws user from this list, and we could
never solve the issue.

At least I have Firefox now as my main internet browser, and that works

If anyone has any other suggestions of things for me to try, please send
them my way.

I am extremely frustrated with Internet Explorer at this point!
