Hi everyone. Thanks Steve, for the tip. I didn't know that. It seems
if I just make sure the site's maximized, it works as it should. I
didn't have to think about that until after a recent windows update,
but a simple fix is nice.

Pro tip: You can press Windows and up Arrow to maximise as well.

All the best

Hi Curtis and Tony,

To add to Curtis's excellent questions, one more that might save a little
trouble if the answer is no: has your wife maximized the page? To check,
press alt-spacebar, release and then arrow up or down through the options.
If maximized isn't grayed out, press the spacebar on it. If it is grayed
out, then maximization isn't the source of the problem.

Hello Tony:

I looked at the page whose link you provided, which was I am running JAWS 2022 with Windows 10
21H1. I have access to the latest versions of Microsoft Edge and Google
Chrome. I also have Mozilla Firefox.

On the page which appears when you activate the above link, none of my
browsers will see an edit box when the JAWS command "e" is pressed.
it is interesting that Forms Mode is automatically turned on. Here are a
couple of questions that might help to address the differences in behavior
between your and your wife's computer.

1. Is there supposed to be an edit box or field on the page
comes up when the above link is activated?

2. Are you both using the same Web browser? If so, what browser
is it?

3. Are you both running with the same version of JAWS? What
version would that be, and if your versions are different, can you tell us
what version of JAWS runs on your computer and what version runs on your
wife's system?

4. What about operating systems? Are you both running Windows 10
or is each one of you using a different operating system? If the latter,
you tell us what operating systems?

What we have here is only some of the information we need to attempt to
address your issue.

With kind regards,

Curtis Chong

Subject: Jaws wil not work on some web pages

wWe are having an issue with JAWS and form fields on a website.

We are serving at our church and it's online and using an online

platform that normally works with Jaws.

For some reason, on my wife's laptop computer, when she goes to press

the leter E to go to the fiorm field, it keeps telling her there are no

form fields on thsi page.

However, when I run the same page on my laptop, I can press ther letter

E to see the form fields and it works properly.

We are wondering if she has a newer version of windows than I do.

What is causing this not to work? On other web pages, she can go to the

edit fields.

Here is the website we are having issues with.
