Re: Unabel to Change or Select Options On Google Search Settings Page

I use Startingpage.com for the same reason -- so as not to be watched by my
search engine!

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.

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.

Gerald
