Hi Adrian,

Yes, I assume that Judy selected the desired text before trying to make it a 
link.
Regarding CTRL+Z, it is probably a typo, since CTRL+Z is for Undo.
Trying Pass Key Through (JAWS+3) is a good idea. Since she's using IE, she 
should press this JAWS command, then ALT+L, then this JAWS command again and 
finally ENTER.
Additionally, Judy could also try changing, at least temporarily, the Link 
Activation option in Quick Settings. This option defines wetter JAWS simulates 
a left mouse click on the link or a pressing of the ENTER key on it; by default 
JAWS simulates a left mouse click, but FS recommends testing the other 
alternative in case the user has problems activating links in a website.
If this solves the problem, Judy could change this in the Personalized Web 
Settings branch, specifically for the problematic website.

Some thoughts:

First, Fernando, shouldn't Judy select the text and only then press control-z 
to turn off the virtual cursor, then alt-l or shift-alt-l?

How about pressing the JAWS pass-through key, JAWS key+3 on the number row 
above the letters, before pressing either alt-l or shift-alt-l?

I used to experience this same problem with WordPress. In that case, Jonathan 
Mosen suggested trying shift-alt-a. that key combination is probably specific 
to WordPress, but maybe not.

WordPress solved this problem in the past year or so by enabling just about all 
formatting in Word, including links, to carry through to the WordPress website. 
Judy, you might ask this website's people if they're working on a similar 
solution.

As an alternative, try disabling the JAWS Virtual Cursor with INSERT+Z before 
selecting the desired text and pressing ALT+L.

Hope it works!

Hello, with an update.

 

Sorry, Fernando, the Alt-L enter keystroke did not work to create a hyperlink 
from within a text body on Internet Explorer.  It still took me to a new web 
page.

 

Just for fun, I also tried the Alt-Shift-L, did not work either.

 

Judy
