Re: Jaws Help, Please!

One example of a dialog which does not include OK and Cancel buttons is the Settings app contained within Windows 10. When you press the Windows key with the letter I a setting is changed as soon as you modify it.

Hi all,


Good points, Gene. I always learn something when reading your posts.
So I'll change my admonition, explore your dialogs but don't change anything unless you're sure you want to do whatever it is. One thing though, if you do change something, going back to the dialog will most probably allow you to put things back to what they were before you changed something.

More discussion is needed on this question.
Not quite. Some dialogs don't have ok buttons and actions take
immediate effect. Tabbing through a dialog won't cause any problems
as you say, but it needs to be pointed out that if you change settings
it may. Firefox is an example of a program where the options dialog
has no ok button and changes take immediate effect. Probably Thunderbird is as well.
While a lot of dialogs have ok and cancel buttons, it appears to me
that more may not than in the past. So tabbing around is fine.
Changing settings is something you should be careful about until you
have found out if the dialog has an ok and a cancel button.
And if you are looking around in a dialog. never use ok to close it if
you don't intend to change any settings. Even if you are sure you
haven't changed anything, use cancel or escape if escape works in the
dialog. Most of the time, it does and is the same as cancel.

Hi all,
I think sometimes people tend to forget that you can't damage anything
in Windows dialogs unless you press an OK button, so therefore,
tabbing through a dialog does not harm anything at all.
