Hi, consider yourself lucky they read at all, just updated here and I can't read phone numbers from any websites. I just get the area code. I have to click on the number, which brings up a Skype Out box as I have it set up like that and then get the number from there. The number is there, but JAWS just says the area code, then a pause, then "On mouse over". Doesn't sound much like a phone number to me.

||

||
||    Can anyone help?
||
