I can't say I've noticed this problem, but maybe I've sublimated it. When
"n" for skip links doesn't work, I try h for heading and sometimes p for
paragraph, which often bypasses a clump of annoying links.
Could you post a link to a webpage that presents this problem?

Subject: JAWS 12 & Web Site Navigation

Greetings:  On many web sites of late and likely for ever more, the articles
I navigate to are preceded by a host of the annoying face book and twitter
The quick key navigation using the letter 'N' does not seem to jump over
these links and accordingly, I need to arrow down past them.  Often in doing
so, JAWS goes quiet and I have to wait a long time or start over in an
attempt to bypass this face book and twitter hurdle.
Since this annoyance seems to be here to stay and assuming I am not alone
with navigation trouble, I'm hoping someone has a suggestion or two in
getting to the text of the article by quickly, easily and reliably bypassing
these new links.
Thanks, Mitch
