RE: JAWS--good product--potential problem

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?

HI,
For   some  web pages, there is no  better  approach  --for some
specific
pages-- that works better than encountering  via down arrowing     the
extra
blank  lines
Despite the easy temtation to suggest some  have  not tried hard  enough
or
that  some are somehow ignorant: some of  us have  spent    time over
months
experimenting without success.
trying to find better ways.
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.
