Form fields - spaces on a website or in a program for you to type in information. The sighted user sees a small area with a box around it. Examples are a search box on a web site; a user id file & a password to enter a secure website; or items such as Name, Street Address, City, State, etc. You need to press the Enter key to open forms mode to type text in a form field. If there are several fields you can use tab to move between the fields.
Combo boxes - are another type of form field. They allow you to answer the question by selecting a answer from a list they have set up. You must press the Enter key to get in forms mode and then press Alt+Down arrow to open the combo box then down or up arrow to go through the list and then Alt+Up arrow to close the combo box. Combo boxes and list boxes are pretty much the same, but combo boxes seem to work much better with JAWS.
Frames divide the window into separate areas similar to window panes. You can access the list of frames by pressing Insert+F9 and then select the frame you want to move in to and press Enter.
