Hi Tom?
Have you tried pressing the plus key twice in Jaws instead of Escape?

Hi folks,

Thanks for replying. Space, escape, tab, at least with firefox and jaws 19,
doesn't work. It's a pia holy mess. Tom ox

Hi Tom,


Please forgive me if I have the wrong idea because I haven't been following
this thread.

I am using NVDA and find the tab buttons which claim to be expanded however,
if I press enter on one of them I am presented with some other tabs which
are nested inside the first lot.  I mean by this that hitting the one of the
first tabs opens a further set of tabs.  If I then press enter on one of
these secondary tabs, a set of headings open up below which I can navigate
to by pressing h.


I hope this is of some use and that I haven't made it too confusing.

Regards,

Phil Medway.

Hi folks, here's the link if anyone wants a look. There's an expand options
bit in the middle of the page and that's where I'm stuck.

Can you give us the URL? Does JAWS say anything like press JAWS key plus alt
plus M to move to controlled element?

Sometimes JAWS goes into forms mode or application mode when you enter one
of these JavaScript widgets, especially if they are badly designed. When
that happens you often can't find the content you expect. The solution is
usually to press the Escape key or the Plus key on the number pad to exit
forms mode or application mode.

Hi folks,

I'm reading a page from virgin, jaws 19. There's a series of expandable
tabs. When I press space, I get a sound as if the tab is opening, but, can't
find the information in the tab. Tabbing and upAndDown arrows doesn't get
it, or I don't.
