moderated Re: A Strange Jaws Cursor Problem


I get the same thing until I set the Jaws cursor to unrestricted the way I described.
You can test this by simply opening, then do the following:
1. Activate the Jaws cursor
2. Press Page Down to go to the bottom of the page with the Jaws cursor
3. Do a Say line (Jaws Key + NumPad 8), you will hear the following:
Advertising Business How Search works Privacy Terms Settings
3. Say you want to click on "How search works" with the Jaws cursor, after Jaws reads this to you, try to use word by word navigation Jaws Key + Right arrow, to go to the word "How" in "How search works". You'll find Jaws says "blank" and nothing happens.
4. Now press Jaws Key + R several times until you hear "unrestricted"
5. Now press Jaws Key + Right arrow again, for me at least I can now easily navigate to "How search works" press the NumPad Slash to simulate a left mouse click and the page loads.

Hello, the issue is not navigation, I can use he up and down arrow keys. However, if I would like to move on to an element only accessible in Jaws cursor mode to simulate a mouse click or read a text by using word by word or character by character navigation, the only response I receive is, "space".

There are certainly situations where the Jaws cursor has to be used.
For example, if I go onto the Air Miles website here in Canada to book
a flight, I have to enter the starting point or airport code of my
flight and once you type all or part of it, the name or the city and
airport pop up usually somewhere below the edit field and the only way
to get to it is with the Jaws cursor and if you don't and you don't
click it, you can't continue with the booking.
Then you have to repeat with your destination city/airport and after
that choosing departure and return date is even worse since a calendar
pops up on the screen and again you have to use the Jaws cursor to try
and find the date and simulate a left mouse click.

I have never used Jaws cursor on a web page, it has never worked for
me and I can read everything on a page with the PC cursor.

Hello Listers, I face a weird issue in Jaws Cursor mode only on
Google Chrome browser that, though I could read lines through arrow
keys, I cannot locate a word or a letter. In other words, I cannot
navigate word by word or character by character in Jaws Cursor Mode.
When I try to do it, It just says, "space". That is a problem,
because I cannot move on where I like to get, thus cannot simulate mouse click .
The problem 'is encountered with the final JFW2020 on Windows 10 Pro

Anybody having this issue or any solution?

Thanks in advance.
