...are you saying that JFW can turn off the browser setting for enabling or disabling Java script?

HI Lolly,

In the Jaws Utilities Menu, choose Setting Center.

Go to Web/HTML > Misc > Page Refresh Filter. This has 3 options: Off,
every 60 seconds, or "as needed", i.e., always refreshes. There is
also a checkbox to ignore Flash. Similar settings can be found in the
Quick Settings feature from a browser window (with Jaws active): JawsKey+V.

When desired/necessary, though, I usually turn off JS in the browser itself.
