I'll admit I'm somewhat of an ostrich where this stuff is concerned. If I don't 
have a need, I ignore it. What are RSS feeds. Jaws announces this phrase all 
the time and I ignore it.

  We have been struggling with this for at least three years. Sometimes I could 
find the combination, which might include right arrowing into seemingly empty 
space to a little picture of a speaker to get the sample to play only to have 
the procedure change the next week. This right mouse button clicking has been 
the longest-lasting so far.

  Actually if one subscribes to the RSS feeds, the samples work there

    It looks like the suggestion to use a Right Mouse Click on the Sample 
Button and then choose Play from the resulting menu works for the books on the 
Best Sellers page.  Audible must be doing something different with some of 
these Flash objects since Spacebar works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't.  
Maybe we should just get used to right mouse clicking and using the context 
menu every time.

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

      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 Audible.com,
        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 Audible.com 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.
