Oh! I forgot. When or if you do the complete reset uncheck personal
settings.

No, I haven't done this.

Question: If I do this, will I loose my internet favorites?

I have saved my favorites folder just in case, but would like to avoid how
to figure out how to import my favorites into IE again if possible.

Have you tried resetting IE11 by going to tools then options then control
tab to the advance tab and choosing either reset default settings or reset
IE11 entirely.

well, I thought IE might be thinking you want to search for an address and
thus interfering with what you want to do?

Tom, I noticed after I upgraded to IE11, the auto complete settings
wer enabled, especially for the address bar. you might try unchecking
this setting:

press alt, t for tools, o for options. control+tab 4 or 5 times to the
contents tab. press alt+i to activate the auto complete settings
button. first checkbox should be unchecked. tab to and spacebar on the
ok button.

I've unchecked all of the autocomplete settings, including the ones in
the advanced tab (found about half way down the dialog).

Hello, everyone.

As some of you may remember, I have been reluctant to move from IE
10 to IE 11, because of problems I had last summer with IE 11 in
terms of being able to enter text into text boxes on web sites that I
access.

However, since I now have been forced to upgrade to IE 11 due to no
Microsoft support for IE 10, I decided to take the leap today, and
install IE 11.

I installed IE 11 from the .exe file that I downloaded and saved from
the Microsoft web site, and the installation seemed to go well.

I also was pleasantly surprised to find that my internet favorites
had all been preserved, even though I had saved my favorites folder
as a back-up, in case something went wrong.

However, this is where the good news ends.

I'm now back to having the same text-entry problems I had last
summer. I had my sighted wife watch while I ttried entering text into
edit boxes, and she tells me that my main cursor does not move when
I try to do so. As I enter text, Jaws speaks the text, but it is not
entered into the web form. I have Jaws set to manually enter forms
mode, so I know I'm in forms mode, since I get the higher-sounding
click whenever I hit enter.

I have made sure all add-ons, extensions, and toolbars are disabled,
but so far, no joy!

Last summer when I had this issue, I worked with Freedom Scientific
Technical Support, with the Microsoft Accessibility hotline staff,
and with another well-experienced Jaws user from this list, and we
could never solve the issue.

At least I have Firefox now as my main internet browser, and that
works fine!

If anyone has any other suggestions of things for me to try, please
send them my way.

I am extremely frustrated with Internet Explorer at this point!

Hi, Tom. I remember when you were having problems with IE11 before. I seem to remember that one of the problems associated with that event was a Windows update which you subsequently were able to remove.

My question is this. Could that Windows update have somehow gotten reinstalled? If you were able to remove it again, might it clear up your problem with IE11?

Hope you get this resolved.

Re: I E 11: Didn't F S claim how easy it is to enter text into Edit fields with JAWS 17?

Tom Behler
 

You know, I don’t mean to get into an FS Bashing thing here, but I can’t for the life of me figure out why FS says there have been no known issues with IE 11, especially as far as Jaws 16 has been concerned.  I can’t count the number of hours I worked on this issue with them last summer!  In fact, one of the people I worked with (last name Carson) spent quite a few hours on the phone, after the issue had been escalated to a status where he would get involved.

 

I do have Jaws 17 here, and have considered installing it, but since FS also has now eliminated the merge utilities feature, the Jaws upgrade  apparently isn’t as easy to accomplish as it used to be.

 

Again, I am sorry that I have taken up so much band with on this list concerning this problem, but the more I’m dealing with it, the more frustrated I get.  And, the more I’m beginning to wonder how truly concerned FS really is with these sorts of issues.

Hi,

First,  Tom I believe you               , because you are not the first person to post the same problem

Entering  text into   edit fields using I E 11.

 

Last Fall, I remember listening as to how F S claimed how easy it is to enter text into

Editfields using JAWS 17.

Obviously, they were  using I E 11 or  maybe not, in their demonstration

Accessing  edit fields.

 

When I  asked F S  about entering text into editfields using I E 11 or if there were any  known issues with I E 11;

I  was told no one had heard of any issues with I E 11.

 

I mention this as 3 months ago,  people had mentioned issues with Adobe and JAWS 16& 17; F S said there were no issues there.

Very recently , according to a person I spoke with from  Microsoft Disability help desk, the latter  issue is a known issue.

 

So if  there  are other issues with I E 11,

Please raise them Here as this helps all of us.

 

I have also heard that Microsoft plans to dump I E.

the

Disability help desk says otherwise.

Is  F S beefing up its supportfor I E 11?

Thank you.

edit boxes, and she tells me that my main cursor does not move when
I try to do so. As I enter text, Jaws speaks the text, but it is not
entered into the web form. I have Jaws set to manually enter forms
mode, so I know I'm in forms mode, since I get the higher-sounding
click whenever I hit enter.

I have made sure all add-ons, extensions, and toolbars are disabled,
but so far, no joy!

Last summer when I had this issue, I worked with Freedom Scientific
Technical Support, with the Microsoft Accessibility hotline staff,

could never solve the issue.

At least I have Firefox now as my main internet browser, and that

Have you tried resetting IE11 by going to tools then options then control
tab to the advance tab and choosing either reset default settings or reset
IE11 entirely.

Tom, I noticed after I upgraded to IE11, the auto complete settings
wer enabled, especially for the address bar. you might try unchecking
this setting:

press alt, t for tools, o for options. control+tab 4 or 5 times to the
contents tab. press alt+i to activate the auto complete settings

I've unchecked all of the autocomplete settings, including the ones in

I E 11: Didn't F S claim how easy it is to enter text into Edit fields with JAWS 17?

Tusing <ptusing@...>
 

Hi,

First,  Tom I believe you               , because you are not the first person to post the same problem

Entering  text into   edit fields using I E 11.

 

Last Fall, I remember listening as to how F S claimed how easy it is to enter text into

Editfields using JAWS 17.

Obviously, they were  using I E 11 or  maybe not, in their demonstration

Accessing  edit fields.

 

When I  asked F S  about entering text into editfields using I E 11 or if there were any  known issues with I E 11;

I  was told no one had heard of any issues with I E 11.

 

I mention this as 3 months ago,  people had mentioned issues with Adobe and JAWS 16& 17; F S said there were no issues there.

Very recently , according to a person I spoke with from  Microsoft Disability help desk, the latter  issue is a known issue.

 

So if  there  are other issues with I E 11,

Please raise them Here as this helps all of us.

 

I have also heard that Microsoft plans to dump I E.

the

Disability help desk says otherwise.

Is  F S beefing up its supportfor I E 11?

Thank you.

It's being developed by the same guy who puts out Chicken Nugget and QReader

Looks like it'll initially support Firefox and Chrome with a monthly cost of
