I am not to handy with all of this, but could your virus protection be set
too high to allow access to things like this? I don't know what version of
windows you are using, but a friend advised me to check this when I was
putting JAWS on my machine. I am using Windows 7 and typed "Change U" in the
search box on the start up and followed the links to a slider which allowed
me to turn that security setting off.


I may be barking up the wrong tree, but offer it as a suggestion anyway.

Subject: More about flash


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 button


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




Thank you.
