Hi Al,

Very interesting. I definitely miss the headings in the results list, too.

One thing I noticed:
At the top of the list of results there are "List View" & "Customize
View" links. Choosing Customize leads to a screen with various
options. One is a checkbox to "display each item in its own row", or
something like that. If you do that, then each search result gets its
own <table></table> section.

Unfortunately the picture of the item (with long graphic name link)
is in the left column, & the name of the item is in Column 2, so it
isn't as efficient to navigate as it could be. But still I think an

Haven't checked out what happens in "Picture Gallery" view. Suspect
it won't be good!

All this using Jaws 9 & IE7.
