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.

Hello, 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. Thanks!
