The JAWS screen reader traps all browser keypresses by default and assigns its own actions to them within the IE browser. This is called Navigation Quick Keys. For example, while browsing with JAWS in Navigation Quick Keys mode, p jumps to (and starts reading) the next paragraph, n jumps to the next text after a list of links, and so forth. In Navigation Quick Keys mode, JAWS will never send keypresses to the web page, which means that it will prevent any webpage's keystroke actions from working, whether the course is fully 508 conformant or not.Here is Freedom Scientific's Solution: "You can turn off Navigation Quick Keys temporarily by typing INSERT+N, but it will be turned back on with the next page load (following any link, or manually or automatically refreshing the current page). You can turn it off permanently in a JAWS configuration dialog."
