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!

Hi,

 

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
