We have been struggling with this for at least three years. Sometimes I could find the combination, which might include right arrowing into seemingly empty space to a little picture of a speaker to get the sample to play only to have the procedure change the next week. This right mouse button clicking has been the longest-lasting so far. Actually if one subscribes to the RSS feeds, the samples work there effortlessly.

Audible must be doing something different with some of these Flash objects since Spacebar works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. Maybe we should just get used to right mouse clicking and using the context menu every time.

I'm working with Audible.com on the "Audible Best Sellers" page, if that matters to anyone. If I go to the search box at the top of the page and turn forms mode on and then simply start tabbing through the page, it lands on all links, of course but if I make it through the page, eventually I come to the sample buttons. Now, JAWS announces "Sample of audio book button plug in type equals object". I can press enter and activate the button. Once forms mode is off, though, the "plug in type equals object" is no longer announced and I can no longer activate the button. I've looked through the settings list and I don't see anything that intuitively strikes me as the problem. Any more words of wisdom? Thanks for the time and thoughts.

I just tested this on Audible, and it worked. ----- Original Message ----- From: 1SmartDog@xxxxxxx To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, January 23, 2010 10:11 PM Subject: New here with a JAWS question Hello, My name is Karen. If anyone can help with this question, I'd appreciate it. On a variety of web sites JAWS says: Flash Movie Start (button I want to activate) and then Flash Movie End My sighted husband can come in, use the mouse and click the button yet no matter how hard I try using virtual, PC and mouse cursor, I can't activate the button Examples of what I'm talking about: On Audible.com many of the book selections have "sample" button so that a small section of the book can be heard. These sample of book buttons are surrounded, according to JAWS with "Flash Movie Start" and :"Flash Movie End". Anyone? Thank you.
