It also appears that I don't know how to type. <sheepish grin>  Actually, it's 
this Gyration wireless keyboard.  Keys have crappy feel and sort of stick.

  I've been wondering about thet "open parant document" thing too.  And, I 
often get into pages that won't read or stop reading properly.  Sometimes I 
just need to switch focus to another program.  Sometimes using the mouse corsor 
and finding something to click brings back the virtual pc cursor.  

  I don't even know how to write a bug report about this as it is hard to 
reproduce.    If you can reporduce it, write to FS support and please show 
them.  Maybe they can fix it?

    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 

    Its using internet explorer and windows xp.   

    Thanks, Ben
