The Bracknell Fair is on Sunday the 31st January
2010, this is one of the biggest Family History Fairs in the South of
England, well worth a visit, if you have not been there before.
They do have guest Speakers during the day.
Bracknell Family History Fair. Location: Bracknell Leisure Centre,
Bagshot Road ( A322), Bracknell, Berkshire, RG12 9SE.
Entrance Fee £3 this year
Open between 10am - 5pm Car parking free.
If you do visit Bracknell, most people take a packed lunch, as the
small cafe takes ages to serve, due to the big queues, you can get a
coffee out of the machines.

Yes, once you have gone through the search procedure, and you are aware that
the screen has changed to the results of your search, press the jaws key,
usually insert, and the escape key together. then go down the page to the
results. My apologies for omitting this info in my previous reply.
Very best wishes,
Thank you for your help. I can now fill in the search form but am still
having trouble reading the results. The results seem to be only read using
the JAWS cursors and the info which appears doesn't appear to be all that
has been returned.
I find it so frustrating! Any further suggestions?

Forgive me if this question has been answeered in the past.
I was just on the Family Search webpage for the first time in quite a while. In the past, I have some difficulty getting it to work well with JAWS but generally could get something accomplished. Have they changed the site? I can't figure out the search form and nothing seems to come up. Is it me?
