Re: IE 7 and JAWS

Kelly,

Thanks. I'm saving the several messages of advice I'm receiving in response 
to my inquiry, and I'll be able to review them when I dedicate some time to 
installing IE7 and getting to know it. Right now, I'm still trying to work 
through a whole lot of buggy issues with FS tech support so I can see if 
Jaws 8 will ever behave normally for me, or if I have to give up and just 
run version 7 until version 9 comes out. This version 8 is a real hassle. By 
the way, and here's something even this FS tech support guy blanked out 
about when I asked him about it, how come with Jaws 8 and IE 6, every other 
time I open some Web page, a sort of pop-up comes up that seems to serve no 
actual function expect to say "RSS Feeds Available.," and offer a button to 
close it, though you can just hit Escape, and then the page that's loaded 
will open fully. What's that about? As it is, I can't imagine needing IE to 
play a sound! I've already got this annoying announcement thing that took me 
some time to figure out and get rid of without getting upset.

Hi,

Although it isn't JAWS specific, there is a quick reference guide to IE7 at
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/ie/quickref.mspx.

The most common hotkeys I use include:

Ctrl+t to open a new tab.
Ctrl+shift+q to list all open tabs.
Ctrl+j to list RSS feeds I've subscribed to.
Ctrl+e to put focus in the search box

Some settings changes you may want to make:

1. Have IE play a sound when an RSS feed is detected by opening Internet
Options, selecting the content tab and then feed settings.  There's a check
box to have a sound played.
2. You may also want to explore some of the tab settings.  You can ensure
that you only get one IE window open all the time by making some adjustments
as to whether new pop-ups open in a new tab, a new window or if IE decides.
Personally I set this to open in a new tab.

Kelly

Hi Allen,

On this topic, may I ask how difficult it is to learn how to use IE 7 if you

install it? With Jaws V. 8.0.2107, of course, is what I'm talking about.
I've heard that it's only got a few features that a person would have to
learn, like this thing about tabbed windows, but even then, what I'd like to

know is, is there a place you can go to simply read some instructions for
how to use the new browser, specifically with Jaws as your access tool? I'd
love to consider finally switching over (upgrading, I guess we're supposed
to say) because I heard in the FS podcast that IE 7 works really nicely with

RSS feeds, and that's an area I'd like to learn how to work with, soon.

thanks for any helpful suggestions.

All best,
The Bird

hi,
for me, it is working fine out of the box. the only setting that i've made
is to change the default search engine to google instead
of msn search by default.

Warmest Regards,

I'm just now getting ready to install IE 7, and I'm using JAWS 8. Are there
any settings I should change in IE 7 to make it work better with JAWS?
Thanks.

Vicki
