ō  within the program, at least thatís our request.

You can through the JAS scripting language.  Technically you could also
through a web page if you create a COM object with JavaScript and the JAWS
API is installed on the machine you can then call JAWS scripts and
functions from a web page using JavaScript.  We donít recommend this though
as you need the API to be installed and it would be JAWS specific.

We have opened an inquiry with JAWS to explore this specific situation, but
beyond that we want a solid solution to updating the virtual buffer from
within the code.  If you can do it from the keyboard, you should be able to
do it from within the program, at least thatís our request.

Ah, really does sounds like a user-agent issue then. If the code *should*
work, and does in most UAs, and (icing on the cake) did work before, then
it is a JAWs issue.



Perhaps add a visually-hidden note above that section to say "If you are
using JAWs encounter issues with this section please try refreshing the
virtual buffer with INS and escape", or something like that.
