Re: Turning Off Auto-Select In Combo Boxes

How about first-letter navigation? I have one site where I can open a combo 
box, select what I want it to do and just hit escape and wait for Jaws to talk 
and the page is what I wanted.

  Tom and others,

  I also vaguely recall a keystroke that allowed a combo box or editable list 
to be opened without suffering the web page refreshing with each item as you 
arrow down. Something similar to freezing the list to allow us to pick the 
item. Wish I could remember that keystroke.

    Hi,
    Try using alt+down arrow instead.  That should do it.

      Is there a way to force a combo box that automatically selects an option 
when you arrow through it not to do this? I know how to do it in multi-select 
lists and such, but not so much in combo boxes. The shift plus down arrow 
doesn't seem to work here. Is there any other way? It's tedious having to wait 
for a page to load each time when I'm going through a combo box of 349 items.

      Thanks so much.

      Samara
