I don't know what the below means, but it doesn't sound like the right information. These links are the ones where, if you were sighted and touched them with your mouse pointer, they'd generate some text that would describe something about the feature they led to. It's an increasingly common feature on many web pages. Let's say you come upon a link that Jaws announces is one of these mouse over links. Let's say you're on Amazon.com. So the link itself may be labeled "Gift Certificates." But when you touch it with a mouse pointer, a cluster of text leaps up like the speech balloon over a cartoon character's head, if that's a familiar image to at least some. It might say, for instance, Don't know what to buy that special person? An Amazon gift certificate will let them choose. Sort of like that. I'm sure some of the stuff that pops up is more descriptive and elaborate, but that's the general idea. Now, if you go to the tutorial on the Freedom Scientific site called Surf's Up, you can find a lesson for practicing how to actually get Jaws to read the material that pops up over one of these links. it's a little complicated, and I gave up after one try at the lesson, realizing there isn't much like that that I really need to see. But for those interested, there's where to learn how to actually use these links and see what they do. But if you don't care about that feature, and just wish Jaws would stop speaking those extra words upon coming to such a link, there is a method, using something in the Jaws manager menus, possibly something to do with verbosity. I forget. But anyway, that's sort of what these things really are. Hope that helps.

Mouse over, tells you that you can move the mouse pointer in that link. For me, you don't need to turn off that attributes.

Hi list, When tabbing through links, JFW says "Mouse over", at times. What does this mean? Is it practical to disable this option?
