Re: Gmail Web Interface - Quick Location of a Button

Where were you searching from? Was it in the main window where the inbox comes up? If so, the dropdown menu voiced clearly in Internet Explorer. I don’t know what it would say in Chrome, or another browser.

Thanks Bill.  I'll give that a try.

I do not understand why a CTRL + F (a straight browser find) would be able to locate that button when a JAWS Find (INS + CTRL + F) does not.  I generally encourage my clients to go with a JAWS Find first as it's been my general experience that it will find objects with label text (whether visible or not) as well as straight webpage text.  

I'm not doubting what you say, but I could swear we did a JAWS Find on just the word "Settings" this afternoon and kept getting the "not found" dialog.  Why?  That makes no sense if a straight browser find can find something.
