508 compliance and links

The inability to currently "click" buttons with the use of the Enter key while JAWS is running is a known issue. We are working on this.

Hyperlinks are the appropriate solution. To create a hyperlink, select the text, such as the word "Quit" in the textbox that you want hyperlinked, right-click, and select 'Add Hyperlink'. When the hyperlink properties window appears, select the action you want the hyperlink to execute, such as "Exit Title/Close Window". Hyperlinks should be created this way, instead of attaching an On Click action to the text block itself. To make the text block look more like a button, you can add a background color, border and margin to the text block through its properties.

I'm not sure what you're referring to with the 508 Compliance checkbox. If you can provide more details, I will try to help further.
