I would also use the insert plus F5 command.  That gives you a vertical JAWS list box that contains any edit box, form field, check box, or button.  I find that, especially if I am having trouble finding an edit box that I think should be there, the Insert f5 list is very handy.  Just typing the letter e also works, but that way you are going from edit box to edit box.

 

If you want just one of these, say just edit boxes or just form fields in a list, press insert plus F3, that brings up a JAWS list of each of the various item types, e.g. buttons only, and you just hit enter on what you want.  That Insert plus F3 list is handy because it gives you a nice reminder list of everything that you can use JAWS to go directly to.

Hi, Lauren. Usually one can find edit fields in Firefox with the letter E key. The difference is that, once the edit field has been found, you might need to press the SPACE BAR to open the form field.

Hi:

 

How do I find edit fields where I can input text in Firefox? I usually use IE, but the web site I want seems to like Firefox better. I am using Windows 10 and Jaws 18.

 

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Lauren Snyder
