RE: Selecting multiple items in alist box on a web page

Sorry, control space doesn't let me select multiple items.
As I said in my original message, the site seems to  assume that the person
is going to be using amouse.
I have tried to use the jaws cursor, route it to the desired item, and then
press ctrl and the jaws left mouse click key. It has no effect.

Phil, I haven't done this myself, which is strange considering how much time
I spend on the Net, but I believe the solution is to hold down the control
key and to press the spacebar against each item you want to select.

Subject: Selecting multiple items in alist box on a web page

Hi.
I am trying to select multiple items in a list on a web page.
The directions on the web page say, use your control key.
Obviously, this is for people that use a mouse.
I can open the list using enter.
It acts like a combo box, but there is supposed to be a way to select more
than one item.
At the moment, I can only select one item by using the down arrow.
Is there any way to select more than one item?
I have tried to use the jaws cursor and move to each item and press the left
mouse button on the keyboard, but this doesn't work.
I have tried ctrl down arrow, but this does nothing too.
I hope this makes sense, and that someone has an idea how to get jaws to
select multiple items.

Thanks
Phil
