RE: Combo boxes that respond as if selected with the down-arrow.

Say, I have to selects more than one area of interest!
How do I do this?

cause, if I press alt+ up arrow, it opens the link.

I am talking about these lists that one gets when looking for a job for =
example and there is a list saying, human resources, public relations, =
etc. How do I make more than one selections?

Hope I am clear enough this time.

Thanks and regards.

No that is not correct.  Press alt+down arrow to open like a list box.  =
Arrow down till you find the choice you want, then press alt+up arrow.

  Hi,

  I've had this happen to me on some web pages but not on all. It seems =

  me
  that this is a web-page problem rather than a jaws problem. One way to =

  get

=3D
  let
  the program activate it for you. I'm referring here to jaws 4.2 =
version.
  Good luck!

  open
  the box, but when I hit the down arrow to select a product, it =

  the

  Thanks in advance and hope this is clear.
  When on a combo box and hitting down arrow to highlight a  desired
  selection, sometimes the link is activated simply by hitting the down =
=3D
  arrow
  instead of the enter key or tabbing to a button for submit or select.
  How does one make choice selections in this situation without starting =
a
  download of something you do not want.
  I am using XPHome, Jaws 5x, and IE.

  The download page of www.ultralingua.com has a combo box that act this =
=3D
  way,
  the one for select product to download.
   Again, thanks in advance
