Is it possible that the address is in text and not a hyperlink?

Hi,
I am saying that JAWS does not frequently read the highlighted link on the
web using
Insert F 7. Often it does but often it does not.


I say this because earlier versionsa always read whatever link one happenedto choose using Insert F 7.

If JAWS says nothing when one selects a link using Insert F 7, then how does one know where one is if one hears nothing?

And then sometimes JAWS will read the link one chooses using Insert F 7. It is hit and miss and should work every time as in earlier versions
read correctly whatever I chose using Insert F 7 all thet ime.]

What application are you trying to use this in?
Insert F7 is used to bring up a list of links on a web page.

Hi all,

I  have noticed that when using "insert + F 7" thatJAWS will frequently
not
read the selected item at all and remains silent.



This diminishes the value of  Insert F 7.
