Hi Tom,
If you're tabbing from 1 open edit / forms field to the next, try closing each field after you enter the data, then arrow to the next edit field and open it and enter the data, close the edit arrow to the next open enter....

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Subject: Problem Entering Text Into A Particular Web Site

Hello, everyone.


Due to some hham radio-related volunteer work I’m doing, I need to send brief alert text messages via a specific web site that is often used for public-service and emergency communication purposes.


In order to send a message, I must complete fields in a web form, which is actually fairly accessible.


However, in part of the form, Jaws tells me that I’m in the message edit box, while, in reality, my PC cursor gets stuck in the subject field which is previous to the message edit box on the form.


How can I be sure that the Jaws and PC cursor are in the same place when completing this form?


Normally, I’d post the web site and ask for everyone’s input, but the site is somewhat secure, and used for public-service/emergency communications, so I need to be careful.


I’ll try to clarify the issue further if needed.


Thanks for any input.
