Hey, Mario and Dean.
 
Yes, I had changed the links quick key to l. What I omitted to add in my first post is that when l is set to move to next list--the quick key default, nothing weird happens. Thanks for the link to the power user info, Dean. I could use the workout! Lol!
 
Thanks, guys,
Lou

Unless you have changed things in the Quick Key Manager, L takes you to the next list, not link.  U takes you to the next unvisited link, and you can edit the list in the Quick Key Manager to allow for a keystroke to activate Any Link, which is not active by default.  All that is discussed in Windows Keyboard Power User Guide available from https://www.techforblind.us.  When forms mode is active, those letters are written into the form, they cannot serve as navigation quick keys then.

Hi, everybody.

 

Does anybody know if JAWS is in forms mode when the JAWS find feature is used?

 

JAWS sort of stumbles over edit boxes and other controls when the Tab key is the links hot key, so I tried using the l and shift+l keys for move to next and prior links, with weird results. Rather than allowing the l key to be used to type the l character, JAWS focus jumped out of the search edit box to who knows where, because nothing in the find dialog uses the l as a shortcut. Odder still is that when the l key default was in place, there was no problem.

 

I'd appreciate any insights. Still trying to figure out what's under the hood, so to speak.
