Well, I joined this list this morning. i've got terrific timing. I got the
email and crashed. Nothing else seems wrong with the comp at this point
though I did have a strange aol spywear scan pop up on me. is there anything
else I should check to make sure all sis in order. As soon as I finish
reading the rest of a days worth of email I'll write a proper intro.

I got this e-mail also, and it did read it, but did not crash.  however, i
am not using eloquence for speech, and I was told that it is eloquence
specifically that will crash.  This e-mail came from one of darrell's
addresses I think, not darrell himself for sure, i don't mean that.  It's
got to be our same little friend.  Is there some legal action that can be
taken here?  this is getting ridiculous, and it is absolutely apparent that
he is targetting this list.

Hi list,
Hopefully this list is still working. I got a rather strange e-mail with a
word in it that causes previous versions of Jaws, and Jaws 7 also, to break
if you don't get into dictionary manager and replace it with a substitute
word; I chose the word "junk" without the quotes. Since I have braille, I
was able to turn speech off and catch the bad e-mail. I hope I was the only
one to receive such a nasty trick. It came from somebody on speakeasy.com if
I recall correctly; but I think it went to my junk folder so I doubt I have
it any more. But it had the offending word at least twice in the subject
line. It is seven letters and I can spell it with commas in between the
letters. Whatever you do, do not, repeat, do not let Jaws pronounce it
without commas. As long as there are spaces or punctuation, preferably both,
when Jaws is reading, you're ok.  It is:
c, a, e, s, u, r, e
This created a commotion with the blind people in IBM when we found out
about it a yeear ago; it was like a virus specifically for Jaws users. I
thought it had been fixed, but it broke Jaws 7 right after I saw the word in
By all means, go into dictionary manager, push enter on add, type the word
without commas or spaces, without proof reading it, tab till you see
"substitute word" or some such item, type the word junk or something else,
and then I think there is an OK button to press, and it will ask if you want
to confirm the change; press enter on yes, and then when it goes back to the
add box to add another word, press alt and F4 to get out.
Dictionary manager is a couple items below the configuration manager in the
utilities menu.
