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

I'm happy to report that I don't have that problem.
My forms mode works just fine in JAWS 15, which I find more stable than 16 or 17.

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.

Please indicate if one can enter text into edit fields using

I E 11 with

JAWS 15,

Latest JAWS 16 and

JAWS 17 version?

The imput on This great list and the excellent posts here can
give people

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

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.
