Re: Speed test

Thanks Grant,

When you go to www.speed-test.net and:
 tern off the virtual cursor,
route the JAWS to the pc cursor,
hit page up,
down-arrow to the line that talks about the test size,
move over to the test size,
route the pc cursor to the JAWS cursor.
You can then sort of use the tab key to get around.

This web site isn't very friendly.

Over the last little while, I've noticed that things are taking too long to
happen in Outlook and Internet Explorer.
So, I thought I'd disconnect my hub and check my download speeds and was
surprised to learn that my ADSL speeds are about half the speeds that I'm
paying for.  Needless to say, I've asked my service provider to check it
out.

Do you know of a more friendly site to do a speed test?

Thanks for your help.

Next, route the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor, do a page up, and then move
down until you reach a line that reads something like:
> Test Size: 25 Kilobytes  Test Type: Download Start Test
> the Start Test at the end of that line is a button.  You will need to move
the JAWS cursor to the word Start and do a left mouse click.  Once the test
has begun, the button will have changed to Stop test.
> Wait until it reads Start test again, then continue moving your JAWS
cursor down to view the results of the test.
