Another thing to try is, while on the link press the application key or shift + F10 to open the context menu, arrow to the, Open, option, & press enter.  I had to use this method the other day on the Amazon website , & this was the only method that would work.

Take care.

I have found  increasing numbers of cases lately where hitting enter does not activate the clickable link.

 

I will give clicking via the Jaws cursor a try the next time I encounter the issue.

 

Am using Jaws 17 and Windows 7 here.

 

My browsers are Firefox and Internet Explorer.

 

Thanks!

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
