Re: What happens with Edit fields in I E 11 with JAWS 15, latest JAWS 16 & 17?

I don't think FS is all that interested, frankly. The response when I
brought the problem to their attention was pretty much, if you have 16
and 17 why even worry about whether forms mode works in 15? Just use
the current version.

Thank you for this warning.

Is any one else unable to use forms mode in earlier JAWS versions after

Install of JAWS 17?

That is not supposed to happen.

If this is a sampling of issues,


F S needs to hear about this.

I haven't been able to invoke forms mode in jaws 15 ever since installing
jaws 17. I know that the functionality of forms mode is a bit different in
jaws 17 and figured something got corrupted. I'm running Windows 7 and
I.E.11 and have this same on both my work and personal laptops. It's not a
solution, but sort of nice to know it isn't just me.

An idea as to how prevalent a problem is so a solution can be hopefully

I really do appreciate it when a JAWS user spends hours of time working with
F S as Tom did to get a problem solved.
