> Also I work with ASP.NET websites which require the entire HTML body to be wrapped in a form tag unless of course you use MVC which I'm fighting for!

I don't have JAWS, but did grab the new OS NVDA reader. It seems to do
the same as JAWS in that it only reads the LABELS of the form fields
one tabs into.

I can't speak to JAWS, but I did try it on some .net pages (as I had
the same thought as that could be an issue with .net's 'every page is
a form' model) and I didn't have that issue.

So I wonder if 'forms mode' is more or less just activated once you
start tabbing into form fields.

Mike...EXCELLENT info on the 'tab ring' concept. I didn't get a chance
to get back into this project this week but will give your suggestion
of giving the header a tab index of 0 within the form next week.
Fingers crossed that that will work as it sounds like a nice
compromise!
