Okay.  I will listen for such clues in the future when I'm navigating things 
like this.  Thanks again for reminding me where that setting is.  I hope 
it'll work as advertised.  My swish is to have the browser set up just about 
normally so that a sighted friend wouldn't find anything amiss once they 
turned off Jaaws and its own version of Web pages, but not have advertising 
technology such as Flash (because that's the only function it serves on the 
pages I happen to visit, though I know others actually want to use it for 
something on other sites) block me from what I'm trying to "see" on the page 
or interfere with navigation.  I'm assuming this arrangement will work. 
I'll stop getting notices urging me to install Flash, but the Flash stuff 
won't be a bother anymore.

The tip-off was when Jaws said "page" in "text page." That tells me that
there are more pages. I took a quick look at a few of the other options
and didn't find another example.

Thanks.  I'll try it.  I didn't even realize that any of these options
produced a series of tab displays when you clicked on it.  I thought
they
were mostly just simple options lists, one per item on the Settings
menu.
Are there other items on the Settings menu that also have more than one
part?  User options, for instance?  Verbosity options?  Any of them?

Thanks.

Whoops.  I spoke too soon.  I see now that the reason this surprised me
is
because, under the Settings menu in configuration Manager, as I arrow up
and
down the list of options, there *is* no submenu Miscellaneous.  I know
you
called it a tab, and in fact, although mystified by that, I tried to
control
tab once I opened the settings menu, of course nothing happened except
that
I was taken down whatever list of options I was in at the time.

Please explain, where is this Miscellaneous section?  I'm assuming you
mean
it should be in the menu along with User options, HTML Options,
Verbosity
Options, etc., yes?

thanks.

In configuration manager, control tab to the miscellaneous page. Tab to
"ignore flash" and check the checkbox. It is right after active X. Tab
to OK  and enter.

Here's a question:

I'm using Jaws 7.  In order to stop getting annoying Windows warning
sounds
and requests to download and install Flash, I gave in and allowed it to
download and install.  But now Flash movies are getting in the way of my
being able to smoothly read something like a New York Times article,
just as
used to happen to me in Jaws 4.5, and for which I had no workaround then
except to desperately hope that the little movie things would be of
short
duration and that I could arrow down past their Start and End buttons or
whatever those are.

So, I figured, this is where I ought to do what you've done-- set Jaws
to
ignore the Flash stuff even though it's playing on the Web page.

So I went into Configuration Manager, hunted through several settings
categories, and couldn't find the option for ignoring Flash.  Now, is
there
actually such a setting, or do you mean you went to the Internet
Explorer
options, probably in the advanced tab, and set something there?

Thanks for the clarification.

Michael,

Speaking of Flash, have you or anybody else noticed a problem with JFW
version 7 and web pages which use Flash?

In spite of having my JAWS config manager set to ignore Flash on web
pages,
I am finding that Flash is interfering with web pages loading, and I
sometimes get a pop-up asking me to download Flash. JFW 5.1 doesn't have
this problem.

Hi,
does it consistently do this or does it only do it on certain web sites?
Do
these sites utilize Flash Media?  I've had something like  this happen
to me
when I've gone onto sites that had Flash Media on them.  Although I
always
assumed the Jaws speech just crashed on me...
