Hi, I have found the same thing here. I found that at the top of my mail
page at least, there is a link to turn off automatic page update. If you can
find it, click on that link, press OK on the next page and it should be OK
for you. I am running Jaws 9, IE 7 on an XP machine.

Subject: yahoo sites and jaws 10




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

I'm running XP, jaws 10, IE 7 and haven't changed my settings



Thanks, Ben
