when a button is pressed, JAWS should repeat the name of the button followed by "pressed". maybe try refreshing the screen reading by pressing insert+escape, or pressing and holding alt down, tab and then
shift+tab.

Mario:

This worked beautifully, though I don't know why. I still can't activate the buttons under settings. What am I missing? I can't tell if a button is pressed or not. Thanks for your help.

Juanita, seems to be a focus issue or something. try pressing alt+f and then s for settings. press alt+tab and, without releasing the alt key, press shift+tab and release all keys, now you should be able to press
control+end to jump to the end of the page and upp arrow to and spacebar
on the advanced button.

Hi all:

I'm using jaws 2018 and public beta 2019 and Windows 10. On the google chrome home page, nothing I've tried will let me access the settings combo box. I've tried alt-down arrow and enter. I'm trying to get to advance settings to allow popups. Thanks in advance for any suggestions for solving this problem.

Juanita
