[jaws-uk] Re: tip on basic navigation with ie6 and jfw7

Tris, I probably did not explain what I mean clearly enough, the pages are not blocked, I can read them but only after Jaws has read, if I let it the whole list of links, right from the top, the welcome page to the bottom, where the copyright information is usually displayed.
This behaviour was present long before I used xp, so sp2 and the pop up blocker can't be the cause of this. furthermore it happens with all the sites I visit except for Tom's. He might know the reason why this happens and might have built his site to counter-act the phenomenum.
Wonder what he'll have to say on the matter.
Thanks for taking the time to answer anyway, much appreciated.

Some websites may be more affected by activites of variuos pop up blockers
including the one built into Windows XP SP2. I wonder if the problem may
have to do with that. The fact you get a visited link suggests Jaws is
activating the link but that the page you are moving onto is being blocked.

Hi all,
Everytime a new guise of the shark comes out I expect that the frustrating
quirk I find it shows when using i e will be a thing of the past.
But it stil behaves in the same way for me so, now, I'm starting to think it
must be me who is not using the prog correctly.
Let me explain:
When I go on a site, Jfw nicely reads the progress bar telling me things are
happening. I like that.
Then it reads the title of the site, and proceeds to read the list of links
displayed.
When I find a link I'm interested in, I press enter. Jfw stops reading,
reads the progress bar again until it reaches 100 per cent.
Veryy good, at least it keeps me in the picture.
Then, instead of taking me to the link I've selected, it starts reading
again from the top of the screen, passing the link I selected saying, quite
rightly, visited link, and carries on reading to the bottom where the
copyright information usually is and then, at last,reads my selected link.
This happens even if I activate the link from the links list, if I press
enter or the spacebar when hearing the link being read.
There must be a keystroke to take me directly to a selected link
straightaway.
Should I use the tab key to move to a link while on the link list rather
than tab to activate it?
Is the selected link displayed in another part of the screen? should I use
ctrl+tab or another key combination to get there?
I always make sure the window is maximized, don't make any difference even
when I check that it is so.
This happens on all the site I visit, except Tom Lorimer's. There, when I
press enter on a link, Jaws goes straight to it. Why can't it be the same
everywhere else?
This is such a basic inconvenience that I'm sure it must have been ironed
out by now, I have not paid enough attention I suppose.
Please, all of you out there who have the shark eating out of your hand,
tell me all!
I've trained the beast to do quite a bit for me but would like to coax it to
do a little more.
Please don't tell me it needs a few grams of the best caviar everyday,
[smile!], my moderate income couldn't stretch to that!, mind you, keeping up
with MSA must be almost as expensive I guess.


Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers now

Marie

p.s I use v.7, ie6 and win-xp home edition
