I've experienced similar issues when radio buttons and or combo boxes are within a fieldset.

By the way I'm using JAWS 13.

Subject: [WebAIM] Jaws 13 (and 14 beta) issues with auto forms mode.


Wanted to ask if any of you are seeing issues with Jaws 13 (or 14 beta)
switching to auto forms mode on FF (13, 15)?
For eg: if I tab to a button that launches a dropdown menu, Jaws doesn't
automatically switch to forms mode and arrow
key navigation breaks for the menu. It works if I just use the keyboard.

I also see this behavior with a combobox.
