Re: What happens with Edit fields in I E 11 with JAWS 15, latest JAWS 16 & 17?
I’m guessing this retroactive defect is a function of files being shared among versions. Although I don’t experience any of the problems described here, I’ve noticed in the past that installation of a new version of JAWS will cause old versions to lose some good points that the new version broke.

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.
