Hi Cy,  This sounds terrific but is there a typo in the link?  I get a 
'cannot display' link with I. E.
Thanks O Ancient One, from another.  Mitch

Hi all,
I have found that
 www.braille.wunderground.com/
Is extremely JAWS friendly.
Go to this link and tab once. Check and it should tell you that you are in
an edit field. Hit enter to set forms mode then type the name of the city
and state (standard 2 char abbreviation) then tab once more and press enter.
The forcast will come up read through the forcast and the bottom entries
will be the current conditions.
HTH, Cy, the Ancient Okie...
