Hey Brian!


Please do report back to us all here when you get an answer from FS about this.  Apparently, many others suffer from this besides me; which makes me feel better knowing that I am not the only one ; )

Sadly, I have that feature set to on, and yet hubby doesn't know where I am on web pages.

 Hmmm.  My fingers are itching to write FS Tech Support, and I'll do that in a couple of minutes.  It's only because I wrote them asking about how to move through the ribbon groups via some method other than hitting TAB until you're fingers are exhausted that I learned the following, "You can move between the categories by performing the control+left or right arrow command."  Those commands are not JAWS based, but Windows based, but I haven't known of anyone who knew them.  It makes moving from group to group in the ribbon much faster when you know that a given item you're hunting for either is, or is likely to be, in a given group.

Now I'll ask them if there's a way to set JAWS such that it visually follows what it's presenting via speech.
