Make sure that you have the very latest build of jaws 9 available from FS's website. Support for ie 8 was not in the original release of jaws 9 but was only implemented in the later or latest builds. I forget what the build number is but it is the one you can donwload from FS's website now. its support of ie 8.0 is not as good as with later versions of jaws but you should try how you get on with it. If this doesn't work for you, you might want to roll back to iey7 or use nvda for your web browsing.

Hi all -

Just installed IE8 over IE7, and now when I type a web address, I can't navigate the web page. If I use the cursor keys, JAWS says the name of the website if I arrow up, and "open parent document button' if I arrow down. If I press the alt key for menus, I can right arrow across through file, edit, view etc, but not up or down for the drop down menus.

Clearly I need to make some changes either to IE8 or JFW in order to get back what I had before, when using JFW9 with IE7. Anybody help me to fix this please?

Thanks -
