Lee Anne,

I don't know what is advised earlier, but when you could not do
anything: try to press the tabkey. Sometimes the focus is not in the
webpage and with tab you will land in the page. Or f6 several times is
also a option.
This will work for me sometimes.
I sometimes press f6, then the num-plus to see if the virtual pc cursor
is active and if not: I press f6 again.

Kind regards, Marten

Again I could not navigate by headings, which I am confident are present. I refreshed the page with no change. After I unloaded and re-loaded JAWS it behaved normally. I am using the most recent Chrome browser and JAWS 21 on a Win10 laptop.

I wonder if it is JAWS not detecting that Chrome is in focus?

When it next happens, please someone do a JAWS Key and T and tell us what it reports. I’ll do the same if it happens to me.

All the best

It just happened, and I tried James' suggestion of pressing Alt + Tab to leave chrome and then Alt + Tab to go back to chrome. It worked. Thanks James. Does anyone know why it works?
