Hello,

Using JAWS 4.02 I went to the page you described. I pressed Enter on the
various drop downs on the page.  JAWS Responded with "Forms Mode on".

I then pressed alt-down arrow to expand the individual drop downs and
then the arrow keys to move through the different selections.

Kelly

Subject: JAWS access to Web forms


A friend is unsuccessfully trying to access a form for ordering films 
to show the high school class he teaches.  He is currently using JAWS 
4.02 and was given the url- 
http://www.medianet.libraries.psu.edu/htbin/wwform/175/wwk770 to 
search for his films.

Currently, my test version of JAWS is on a machine without an 
internet connection, so I can't replicate his experience. I apologize 
for this note, but could use some direction. By looking at the code, 
I can tell that the twelve drop down menus are unlabeled form 
elements and the "Help" page is held together by tables and lists. As 
a short term solution, is there a keyboard combination that will 
allow him to access the drop down menus?

Any help would be appreciated.
