  The reason you can't find Alt+n in JAWS Help is that it's an Internet 
Explorer keystroke not a JAWS keystroke.

    When you hear Jaws say "popup blocked" and the popup sound:  Press alt+n 
then the context or applications key to bring up the menu for popup blocker.

    This works for IE7.  I don't know about IE8.

    There really should be a popup blocker under the tools menu but it might be 
different in IE8.

    I don't know where the alt+n jaws keystroke is documented.  I think it 
brings focus to the information bar but couldn't find it anywhere in Jaws help.

      Hi,  On occasion various web sites deny full access and advise via a 
dialogue that further access is being denied  due to blocking of pop-up content.
      I have used the cursors to work around this problem with varying degrees 
of success.
      Is there a setting somewhere that can give me control of access when I 
encounter these blockers?
      Thanks for the continuing education,  Mitch
