I get this on some websites with JAWS 11 and Windows 7. I think it's how
designers has implemented the input field as we call it in HTML language.

Subject: JAWS 10 and edit fields

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.

TerriLynne
