Jaws and Internet Explorer
I'm sending this mail on behalf of a friend of mine, who is having a problem
with Jaws and Internet Explorer.
I wonder if anyone can help me? A few months ago I installed JAWS 12 onto
my parents PC so I could use the internet when I am visiting them. All was
well until this weekend. JAWS has literally stopped working with internet
explorer and I just can't understand why. When I load internet explorer
JAWS will read the title of the webpage and nothing else.
The arrow keys don't work and it says there are no links. If I try to use
any of the keystrokes like insert f6 the headings list won't appear and it
says no headings. No buttons or form fields can be found. If I press the
alt key I can look at the file, edit view menus etc but I just can't
navigate any webpages.
I have tried unloading and reloading JAWS, rebooting the PC, refreshing the
webpage and still no luck. Internet explorer 8 is the version on the PC.
All other applications are working perfectly with JAWS. I've never come
across this problem before.
If anyone can shed any light or help me out I would be really grateful as
this is so frustrating.
Thanks in advance.
Check to see if that computer is using something like Google tool bar in I E. It could be blocking the page from Jaws. Also, check to see if there's a pop up doing the same thing.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

That sounds pretty much like what mine's doing. I can read the addresstoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
bar, but not the web page. Jaws isn't working with Microsoft word now
either. It worked fine with both IE and M. S. Word until I installed
the latest update, so I'm thinking that has something to do with it.
