a long time -- nearly 20 years. I followed your steps exactly. Flash recognize

neither space nor enter activates the button. Could another setting be

  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.
