Hi again, Judy. Here's what
JAWS says about Document Presentation:
This option controls how
JAWS formats virtual documents.
Select Simple Layout to
have links, form fields, buttons, and other page controls
display on a separate line. This is the default setting if
Smart Navigation is not enabled.
Select Screen Layout to
have pages rendered in the virtual buffer in a way that is
similar to what a sighted user sees on the screen. If page
controls visually appear on the same line, then they will
appear on the same line in the virtual buffer. In
addition, all items in a single table row display on the
same line. Table cells are separated by a vertical bar.
Screen Layout is used when
Smart Navigation is set to Controls or Controls and Tables
and cannot be changed while Smart Navigation is active.
I don't have Smart
Navigation enabled, yet this seems to make no difference.
do you call it if you want to read the links vertically? I
went to the settings and thought I chose what I should
with simple view and the choice for vertical and saved it
but things are still read horizontally. What did I miss?
Judy & Libby
all, there is a setting in JAWS that allows a person
to read links on a web page left to right as they are
viewed by a sighted person, instead of the normal up
and down. It has been in for a few versions of JAWS.
Can anyone think of the name of that feature?
PRESS JAWS KEY PLUS 6 THEN TYPE IN DOCUMENT
PRESENTATION AND YOU WILL SEE THE SETTING.

Apologies in advance if I send you down the wrong path.
