Jaws Question


Pastor Gilbert Pries
 

I have Jaws set to silence when I go to the top and bottom of a web page or document.

When I go to the top, jaws says, "wrapping to top, and it still dings.

How do I stop this?

Thanks,

 

Pastor Gilbert"

Pastor, it sounds like you're referring to what JAWS calls wrap navigation. This is where pressing a single letter quick navigation key wraps from its current location to the top of the page if an element is not found, as in when you press H to move to the next heading and no next heading exists on the page.

Open the Settings Center to turn this off. The quickest way to open the Settings Center is to press insert-6, six being the key on the row of numbers and not on the number pad. Enter "wrap" without the quotes and you should find the Wrap Navigation setting.
