Alt+DownArrow to open the combo box - did you try that?

Check on screen refresh in the html settings, part of the IE configuration 
manager in JAWS.

  Subject: JAWS 9 AND IE 7.0 - any incompatibilities?


  Myself and another tester have been id'ed to take over 508 testing for an 
HTML application on IE 7.0.  The app has been tested in previous releases but 
with IE 6.0 has the approved baseline. 


  We are unable to get a drop down box, populated with values to allow the user 
to enter and select a value.  We are using the forms cursor, and tabbing the 
field, then attempting to use the arrow keys to move through the values.  The 
fields are populated with the first value in the list which is "Select a value".


  We are also having an issue with refreshed information on a page.  When an 
error message displays in response to a selection, the information is no longer 
being read. We are using the keystrokes to read the entire page, and all that  
is being read are the active fields and labels.   The refreshed information is 
consistently NOT being read on any page. 


  All of these functions worked in prior testing with IE 6.0 per the documented 
results from the prior testing. 


  If not already obvious, we are very new to this testing and would appreciate 
any help regarding issues we are experiencing.
