Travis, and all,I just tried turning Cursor Tracking off, on a site I frequent, where I experience this cursor-jumping behavior, and it appears to alleviate this behavior, to a point, but it still happens.
The main page of the site consists of four frames, and my biggest problem seems to be with the main content frame. Oftentimes, the VO Cursor jumps completely out of the HTML content area, and I have to re- interact with it, and re-navigate to the content frame. At times, navigating this site can get *really* frustrating, because of this behavior!
I did, recently, send an eMail to Accessibility@xxxxxxxxx, detailing these issues, and received a response back, the next day, telling me the problem was being forwarded on to the appropriate personnel for further investigation.
This problem first manifested itself with the release of Safari 3, as I recall having the same issues under Tiger, after downloading the Safari 3 beta.
I also have many problems with having to re-load pages, in order to interact with the HTML area. This seems to happen, in particular, with my On-line banking, but I've seen it on other sites, as well, including the site I alluded to, earlier,. As yet, though, I've not sent a complaint about this behavior to Apple, but probably should do so.

When you have cursor tracking issues like this one, you have to turn off cursor tracking (vo-f3) then the vo cursor will go where you tell it to w/o the main cursor causing it to jump around. This isn't something I'd expect apple care to know about, since very few of their technicians are actually familiar with the vo product itself. Generally, this happens because of page refresh code built-in to the pages you're viewing, though sometimes it happens for no reason at all that I can figure out. However, turning off cursor tracking will allow you to move around until you get onto another page, then you can turn it back on again.Click on the link below to go to our homepage. http://www.icanworkthisthing.comManage your subscription by using the web interface on the link below.http://www.freelists.org/list/macvoiceover Users can subscribe to this list by sending email to macvoiceover-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxwith 'subscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Webinterface at http://www.freelists.org/list/macvoiceover
