Hi Christian,

With JAWS set to do a maximum search for labels (which is the default), it
will check both to the left and above a control.

If you want the labels announced for radio buttons in a group box, such as
Documents/page Numbers, try the following.

Go in to the JAWS Configuration Manager, Settings, Verbosity, and make sure
that "Announce Control Group Name" is checked.

I've just tried it here with JAWS version 5 and it works just fine.

cheers.

Ian
