I cannot think of a time where I have needed to arrow past blank lines on a Web page. I probably just have not encountered such pages. Could someone send a link to one of these nasty sites just as an example?

All this is because " some" are encountering difficulties and have even had to curtail computer usage. If some one can help come up with even a partial solution in this matter, there will be more than a small few happy to find an answer. Repeat use problems are not to be taken lightly and it is my sincerest hope that some may express some useful, pragmatic concern to mailto:suggestions@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Because I know some of these people so affected, and as I believe in and recommend JAWS, I put my hopes with an strongly believe in the company that makes this marvelous screen reader. the over use problem is not to be ignored and is important; sparing needless keystrokes is " the real deal" when pain and repeat use problems limit Internet usage--as others are increasingly reporting. ----- Original Message ----- From: "David Poehlman" <poehlman1@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: <jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, December 19, 2003 10:21 PM Subject: Re: JAWS--good product--potential problem > I have two things to say here. > 1> if one has a suggestion, one should write to: > suggestions@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and if there is a problem asking for > a solution like how do I do this or that with jaws or some thing that > is not readily apparent, we are here to help.
