Radio buttons are quickly accessible, when available, with JAWS-F3, followed by the letter R. They get quite a workout over here.

I am now back at the unit with JAWS on it. Smile
I would say on a scale of 1 to 10, I fall at maybe 1.5? Haha
I am slowly trying to get used to the way JAWS does stuff. I have to admit that I still fall back on WE for a lot of things because it is just faster to get things done. I try to use JAWS to do things I know how to do. I find myself having to turn WE back on to get things finished.
I do know the C for combo box, H heading, A for radio button (but I am used to that function being R) I don’t understand the Regions? That is now what R is for.
The Touch Curser seems to be pretty cool but, I don’t understand it either. It doesn’t seem to find the things I know are there either.
I don’t seem to have any luck using the JAWS find command at all. It never finds things I know are on the screen. I don’t have much luck using the JAWS curser i.e. mouse to find things I know are there.
There are tons of things about JAWS that I don’t know. I am slowly plugging away at the manual when I find a problem and think “there is a something for this”
Like just now… I had some spelling errors in my message. WE has a handy little thing where you can jump to the next and prior spelling errors. Alt and semicolon for prior and alt apostrophe for next. I find it very handy I wonder If JAWS has a feature like this?
I don’t want to assume the level of Jaws knowledge you have for navigating websites, but on a scale from 1 to 10 where 10 is super expert, where would you rate your knowledge of the tools and features Jaws offers? By those I mean things like using quick nav keys like c, b,t, l, r and so on as well as features like Jaws Find, setting bookmarks, making sure you correctly activate mouseOver links etc.
I am a Scotia Bank customer in Canada and also use the CIBC website as I have a Visa from them and while of course this issue Kevin describes may very well be impossible for Jaws to deal with, I have certainly helped people with problems which ended up being quite workable form somebody who really knows to get the most out of Jaws
I am also curious whether now that Kevin got an explanation of the problem if he can now get Jaws to do what is necessary without sighted help.
I have numerous times needed sighted help to explain to me what was going on before I could deal with it using Jaws by myself.
Hi Kevin, I've been watching the saga. I'm glad you figured out the problem, but how did you solve it?
I have issues finding controlthings on my banking site as well. Just wondering what the tricks and tips are. Thanks Shannon
Problem solved; when I pressed the “Pay Bills” button a little box came up asking if it was to come from checking or savings, which JAWS did not recognize.
