I have used some of yahoos services in the past with no problem with jaws 10 
and internet explorer 7. However, it seems like the last few months I am unable 
to use yahoo websites (such as answers, groups, mail, etc). When I come across 
a edit field, forms mode doesn't come on, and my jaws totally shuts down (not 
shut down as in turn off, but it won't read the rest of the page); It won't 
read anything on the pages for me or go to any edit fields; all of the jaws 
commands are virtually useless. I can use the jaws cursor, but I'd like to use 
virtual mode like normal to navigate. So I can't use these sites for a while 
now. I'm curious if anyone has experienced the same thing, or knows how to fix 
this issue? Is this something to do with me, or yahoo?
I'm running XP, jaws 10, IE 7 and haven't changed my settings

Thanks, Ben
