J. R.,

It should help.  Thanks for having a second look.

Peter,

It is a script issue.

To reproduce:
1) with the scripts in place pen a .dxp file and select some text.
Notice the behavior.
2) go to the jaws\settings\enu directory and remove all the dbt.* files.
3) rerun the test in step 1 and notice the difference.

I hope this helps.

J. R.

J. R.,

I suppose that we understand why Control+Home might not work as you'd like
-- Caryn probably just never set it up so that it would.

The slow response is probably more a matter of the slowness of DBT itself in
this regard.  You might try (with sighted assistance) running the same
highlight test without JAWS running to see if the response is substantially
better.  I wouldn't be surprised if its not.

I have noticed a couple of things that are somewhat problematic with the
jaws scripts.

In a braille document view if you do a ctrl+home, goto top of file, the
script reads the direct computer characters instead of the top line in
spoken text.
E.G, ",?9k+ 9 ,java" instead of "Thinking in Java".
The up and down arrow keys read as you might expect.

When doing a select of text with the right and left arrow keys the speech
response is VERY SLOW sometimes taking several seconds to catch up with the
cursor.

Thanks,
J. R.

Beta Testers,

Beta 5 -- a code-complete copy of DBT 10.5 -- is now available for download
at:

http://partners.duxburysystems.com

I expect that it will be only about a week before we go to "Release
Candidate 1", which will contain improvements to the online help.
However, no other improvements or fixes to the program are anticipated.

For those of you who reported problems that we haven't fixed, I'm sorry.
We will try to get to these after release.  Observe that DBT 10.5 contains a
"Check for Updates" item in the Help menu.  We do plan to make updates
available on a pretty regular basis.

Best Regards,

Peter
