moderated Re: trouble changing Googlesearch settings
JAWS 16, i.e. 11. It doesn’t say “slider”, just has the no-link list of options. Just tried right-arrowing to the desired choice, then entering, and, as I suspected, didn’t get the desired result.
Yesterday, a friend sent me the link to the Googlesearch page, and I found the same results. Doing further research before that (I’m like a dog with a bone—I can’t let it go), I learned that sometimes your cookie settings can screw things up, so, now wonder if the page doesn’t represent correctly unless you allow all cookies—though that really doesn’t make sense, because I have the settings I had when I was able to make it happen probably a year ago. There may be cookie settings in CCleaner that do need changing in order for it to work, but I’m having trouble making changes there, too.
So, any further input from you and others, still appreciated. Until I can get a “sightee” to look at it and maybe make it happen, I am still willing to plug away. Thanks!

What browser and version of JAWS are you using? With the latest version of JAWS in Chrome or Internet Explorer, are you hearing JAWS talk about a slider just after the heading that talks about the number of search results? If so you should be able to press enter on the item JAWS calls a slider and have Forms Mode turn on. Then use the left or right arrows to adjust the slider and save the new setting.

Trying to change my Googlesearch # of results to 100, but all I see, when I get there, is a list of from 10 to 100 desired; it doesn’t appear to have actual links to click on, just a vertical list. I have tried to click on them with spacebar and enter, but obviously, nothing happens.So, what’s up with that? Any ideas for how to proceed? Thanks, in advance.
