Sitting here trying to figure this out, I find something very odd. I'm working 
with on the "Audible Best Sellers" page, if that matters to anyone.

If I go to the search box at the top of the page and turn forms mode on and 
then simply start tabbing through the page, it lands on all links, of course 
but if I make it through the page, eventually I come to the sample buttons. 
Now, JAWS announces "Sample of audio book button plug in type equals object". I 
can press enter and activate the button. Once forms mode is off, though, the 
"plug in type equals object" is no longer announced and I can no longer 
activate the button. 

I've looked through the settings list and I don't see anything that intuitively 
strikes me as the problem. Any more words of wisdom?

Thanks for the time and thoughts.

  While in,
  1. press insert plus v
  2. type fl for flash movie recognize on
  3. if it is not, press space to set recognize on.
  4. press enter to save that setting.
  5. press b to find one or more flash buttons.
  6. when you reach the desired button, press space.
  I just tested this on Audible, and it worked.

    My name is Karen. If anyone can help with this question, I'd appreciate it.

    On a variety of web sites JAWS says:

    Flash Movie Start
    (button I want to activate)
    and then
    Flash Movie End

    My sighted husband can come in, use the mouse and click the button yet no 
matter how hard I try using virtual, PC and mouse cursor, I can't activate the 

    Examples of what I'm talking about:

    On many of the book selections have "sample" button so that a 
small section of the book can be heard. These sample of book buttons are 
surrounded, according to JAWS with "Flash Movie Start" and :"Flash Movie End". 


    Thank you.
