Subject: Re: how to activate a clickable link
You should be able to activate a “clickable” element by simply pressing Enter. Here is what FS says:
“Move To Next On Click Element. Slash. DOTS 3-4
JAWS only indicates the presence of the OnClick attribute for HTML elements that are not usually clickable. Press ENTER on the clickable element to perform an action or follow a link.”
You can also try to activate the “clickable” by actually “clicking” it via the JAWS Cursor:
1. Press Insert+Ctrl+NumPadMinus(-) to set the JAWS Cursor to follow the PC Cursor
2. Navigate to the “clickable” element on the page normally
3. Press NumPad/ to perform a left-click
I have occasionally run into a clickable that would only respond to a mouse click via the JAWS Cursor. Hope this helps!

I have this question too.
Seems to be happening more and more lately.
Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan
I’ve come across links on a web page which jaws announces as ‘clickable’ but pressing space or enter doesn’t seem to work. Is there an alternative way to activate clickable’s on a web page? I’m using internet explorer, but have also tried chrome and firefox, but still can’t seem to activate them.
Thanks in advance for any help
