JAWS jumping out of edit boxes


Holly
 

Hi group:

I just saw, on a JAWS list, that some people were having issues with JAWS jumping out of edit boxes while typing.

I had this problem awhile ago on the Costco website and I think Gene told me the workaround, but I have forgotten.

If someone could post the solution, I will pass it on.

Thanks.

Use JAWS key z, when you are at the edit field to turn the virtual PC cursor off. Then, when you are finished working with the edit field, use the same command to turn it on again. Using enter to enter forms mode instead may allow you to return to the virtual PC cursor when you don't want to if the edit field refreshes as you type. JAWS key z won't allow this.
