Jerry,

through numerous versions of Jaws, I've never learned from the
documentation
or tutorials or ever heard anyone say, as you have, that you can use the
space bar to enter Forms Mode. Seriously? That's interesting. The
instruction has always been to press Enter, and I never inferred that to
be
suggesting or implying that this is like working with controls labeled
buttons, where sometimes enter will do the job but other times it's the
space bar. I thought Forms Mode was just an enter thing, end of story.

Not so, apparently?Seriously

Just something I've noticed. I usually use the space bar to go into forms
mode with older versions of Jaws. That cuts down on going where I don't
want
to.

 If you do not like it turn it off.  Personally it is something that is
very long overdue in my opinion. I like not having to press enter to fill
in forms, it needs a bit more work, for example if one tabs to put in a
password after a user name it sometimes turns off and getting it back
again
can be a annoying but, for the most part this is a feature I like a lot--a
feather that often in the past has made me switch to System Access when I
know I am going to be filling in forms.

 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
