Caryn,
My show cursor locator when shift is pressed is unchecked already.
I just want to be sure I haven't confused you. The oddity is that when I am highlighting lines in the Braille document, it speaks the braille words instead of the print words like it used to do. When you used the word "extraneous " it made me think that you might be thinking that it is reading extra words.

My "Active follows braille is unchecked.
In case it matters, I have JFW set to Line mode as it usually is.

Hello Betsy.

I think that you can change a DBT setting to fix the problem of extraneous
reading by JAWS when you select text with the Shift key.  It is one of the
Cursor locator settings.  Go to Global settings - View preferences.  Uncheck
the checkbox labeled "Show cursor locator when shift is pushed."

I don't have an immediate answer about the problem of extra spaces that
appear and disappear on your braille display.  But I'm wondering about one
setting when you open the JAWS Configuration manager from DBT.  Under
Braille options, is "Active follows braille" checked?  I think that the
behavior you have described might occur if you check that option.

Sincerely,
Caryn

Listers,
When I open a .dxp document and then translate it to braille it looks
fine at first. If I display the codes using alt-f3 I see what looks
like two or three character spaces between some of the words on the
display. If I check with the cursor, there really is only one space
between the words and if I delete the space the words are then
touching.  If I then turn the codes off the large space remains. If I
continue to move down through the document, all seems right again.
This also occurs when I open braille documents and then display the codes.

Also, If I am in a braille document and the speech is reading the
print words and then I want to highlight part of the text by holding
down the shift and using the up or down arrow, the speech starts
reading the words in braille code. I don't remember this being like
this before.

Also, I can't seem to get my Index Basic-D settings to stick.
everytime I bring a new document in, I have to reset the number of
characters and the top and binding margins in the Document Menu
Embosser settings. They do stick after I save them with the document.
