I find that since the introduction of the virtual viewer tabbing is not the 
best way to navigate a web page.  I had the habit from the old days but now I 
find the arrow keys and navigation quick keys is so much better to navigate the 
webpage.  I believe the wrap function does not really apply to the tab because 
of the introduction of the toolbar.

I'm looking for that now.  It also annoys me when I get into the IE8 toolbars.  
I thought jaws was supposed to wrap back to the top when you tabbed past the 
last tabible element on a  page.

It really annoys me when tabbing around a page and Jaws gets confused, looses 
the virtual cursor, and you end up in the toolbars again.

Wrap Navigation in HTML Options is turned on.  Also, Top And Bottom Edge - 
Alert With Sound  inAdjust JAWS Options (Jawskey+v is also on.

Often it helps to turn Flash Movies Recognize - off
Page Refresh - Off . But, it still doesn't stop us from tabbing into the 
address bar and those pesky toolbars.

Another annoying thing is that Jaws sometimes goes right to the last element on 
a page instead of the first one when you press tab after landing on the page.  
Then the next tab goes to the address bar.  I'm not sure when this started 
being a problem with Jaws.  I know other screen readers do this so I suspect it 
is a behaviour of Internet Explorer but I wish Jaws wouldn't do that.

Hi all,
Is there any way to set jfw so that all these different toolbars and things 
don't show up when I tab through a web page?
Have a blessed day,
