combo boxes


Lauren Snyder
 

When I am on a web site that Jaws 17 reads as combo box closed, I pressed enter and arrowed to the right to open it and then down arrowed, but Jaws reads nothing.

 

Any ideas?

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Lauren

Try alt + down arrow and see if that works.

Hi,  does this happen on all sites or just specific sites?

Hello!  This may be due to how the web-site is coded.  If you have access to Firefox, that browser may handle this type of page better than IE 11.  You may try that to see if you get better results.
