Jaws has a "Text Link Verbosity" setting (HTML Options from the Set Options
Menu item of the Configuration Manager) to speak alt tag or title, screen
text or the longer of the two. The default is screen text, I believe.

Subject: Question about JAWS rendering


Hi,

Someone using JAWS to access one of my sites reports that it reads the link
in this text:

Join us on March 3<sup>rd</sup> for a
<a title="About the party." href="catalogcards/index.html">
grand send off</a> of the <em>paper card catalog.</em> We have been
writing to authors and artists...

as "Join us March 3rd for a About the party. of the paper card catalog..."

What did I do to make JAWS read it that way? How can I convince JAWS to read
the link text instead of or along with the title attribute text?

The page is <http://www.joneslibrary.org>.

Thanks,

Seth
