Hi all,
I am using JAWS 10 and Windows XP. My JAWS doesn't respond to all edit fields in the same way. As you arrow down through web pages and come to an edit field, forms mode automatically comes on. And this response is always the same. However, when I do one more down arrow, on some pages it leaves the edit field and on some it gets stuck. Can anyone explain to me why this is? Does it have anything to do with how the html for the edit field is formatted? Or even which programming language was used to form that field?

I'd really appreciate any information you might have on this subject.
