Yes, I find myself hitting the ctrl key even more with the JFW 9 beta.  I
haven't found this to really impair my access, just to be annoying.

When on pages I find Jaws 9 jumping around to much. Difficult to explain but
it gives information that is not needed before telling you where it is.  It
is as if it is saying all the things it is passing before it gets to where
it should be.  Also on arrival at new pages there seems to be an awful lot
of repeating of headings etc. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this.
Jaws 8 is far more stable on these pages that I am using, the focus is the
only thing being read wheras with Jaws 9 it seems to be giving other
unwanted information that is on the page.  I am using place markers to jump
to the links I need, alternating between two links, with jaws 8 I just get
the link information of both links but with jaws 9 i get other text
announced to me which I know is on the page before it settles on the desired
