I ran into an issue today that I've never seen before. At my college the computers that have jaws on them (jaws 9) would not read webpages. When I loaded the internet it would read the web address, but when I arrowed or tabbed to navigate the site, jaws would read absolutely nothing even though sighted people said the page was moving. The cursor was in the right location, and nothing if a link was clicked with the mouse. It either read nothing at all, or it kept repeating "open parent document" whenever I hit the arrow key to navigate the site. It did this on all webpages, but in no other application. I am curious if anyone knows what is going on, and how I can fix this so I can use the internet. I had no problem prior to today, and the jaws hasn't been upgraded. Its using internet explorer and windows xp. Thanks, Ben
