I mentioned this a week or so ago, but got no response. I've switched to scroogle.org. It gives the same search results without tracking and saving your searches. So if you like not being watched by your search engine, give them a try. They're supported by user donations.

Subject: Unabel to Change or Select Options On Google Search Settings Page
Hi list. Using JAWS 9 and IE 8, I am somehow no longer able to change or select any options on the Google search settings page under options on the Google home page. For example, under the heading Google Instant Predictions, the words On and Off are displayed, but there is apparently no way to select either of these options. Under the Results Per Page heading, the numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 100 are shown, but there is no way to select the option you want. And when I hit Space or Enter on the Save Preferences button, nothing happens. I have cookies enabled, so that's not the issue. JAWS announces that there are no check boxes or radio boxes on the page. I never had problems with the Google Search Settings page before. Previously, the settings could be changed by selecting the appropriate check box or radio box, but JAWS either no longer recognizes these boxes on the Search Settings page, or they have otherwise been eliminated. Did Google change the Search Settings page so that it is no longer JAWS accessible? Or am I missing something? Can someone explain what the heck is going on with the Google Search Settings page? Thanks for any help.
