  Hi Roy,

      Unless things have changed, I recall from my sighted days that I had to 
left mouse click on an edit box to get a flashing cursor, which meant that I 
could then type something in that box. Therefore, I would say that pressing 
Enter to put on forms mode, amounts to the same thing.

      Regards,

      Don

    remember that people who don't use screen readers do not have to think 
about forms mode so this is just makeing the experience mor like most people 
have.  Also have you actually used the feature?

      I don't think I like the idea of auto forms mode at all. If I want to 
fill out something, it is so easy to hit enter to get into forms mode, there is 
no chance of typing something into an edit field unintentionally, I always know 
whether I'm in forms mode or not, and if for some reason, I'm unsure, all I 
have to do is press the key combination for the pc cursor to find out. 
          I don't like my computer or its programs to do my thinking for me, 
and automatically putting me in forms mode when I may not want to be there 
falls into that category IMO.

        Hi, I love the new auto forms mode. However I find it annoying when 
sometimes it will automatically go in to auto forms mode when you first load up 
a site. For example EBay or other sites were there is a search box or username 
field, and the website is designed to put you straight to either of the boxes. 
JAWS then switches to forms mode as soon as the page has loaded (sometimes even 
whilst it's loading), and then you can't use your navigation quick keys to move 
around the page, without having to press down arrow first to get out of forms 
mode.

        I'd like to have it so that JAWS wont go in to auto forms mode in 
situations were the website automatically puts you in an edit field.

        Anybody else have any comments on this?

        Peter
