One other item to try because it sounds like the root of your problem is
that JAWS isn't going into forms mode where the slider is. Turn off the VPC
on this page once with ins+z and make sure it is off. If it happens to not
go off immediately, which I've experienced, alt+tab away and back. Then tab
through the page and see if you get to a slider or a number and try the left
and right arrows again.

John, it works fine. I just did it using what Sandra has, J16 and IE11.

Its possible you need a newer version of JAWS. You should download it and
see if that makes any difference.

Sandra, after choosing how many results and pressing enter, the changes
needs to be saved. there's a button at the end of the locations for
different regions. activate it and you should get a message that the
settings were saved. now try it out.

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.

Hello,



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.
