Good quick fix. I like that idea.

  When I get a page that JAWS reports has no links, I turn the Virtual Cursor 
off and back on with JAWS Key+z.  This usually fixes the problem.  I don't know 
what causes this problem, but Window-Eyes users have complained about similar 
behavior with that screen reader.  They must turn Browse Mode off and back on 
to have the page spoken.

    Dear all,
    This problem happens sometimes: when I surf to a web page using IE or 
FireFox, when the page is completely loaded and Jaws wants to speak the page, 
it only says page has no headings and no links... it looks like that the page 
is empty; the hot keys are working, but similar; i.e.there is no 
buttons/headings/etc on the page. but I can perceive the objects there. This 
problem is usually resolved by restarting the browser, but sometimes it 
    Any idea?
