Re: A Jfw and Microsoft Word Problem

Robert, no need to get sarcastic.  You didn't say originally that Jaws had 
actually said "menu bar."  I thought the first person who responded to you 
suggested that that's what it was.  Sorry.  Now please, don't get in a snit. 
I'm sorry I didn't know this.  And I still never heard of a floating Windows 
program menu bar.  So I truly hope someone can explain this who knows. 
Which version of Word are you using?

Peace,
Daniel

When it is in the middle of my screen, and microsoft calls it a menu bar,
what am I suppose to call it?
I thought if Microsoft labeled it "Menu Bar" that I would be safe in calling
it a "menu Bar."  Guess I must be wrong.

Hi,
there seems to be a problem with terminology here, which it may help to try
straightening out.  The menu bar in Word is not a floating bar.  It is not a
tool bar, in other words.  It's a standard Windows-style menu bar that is
always at the top of the screen, just like the menu bar of Outlook express
or Windows Explorer (or Internet Explorer, for that matter).

That said, there *can* be a problem with floating *tool bars* in Word, and
those tool bars need to be docked for the Jaws user.  But a tool bar doesn't
read across like a series of standard Windows menus.  So at least to me,
it's not clear what you're encountering in the middle of your screen.

And, if by some chance, there is some kind of tool bar that looks like a
menu bar, I apologize.  but I'm an old PC user, very familiar with these
programs, and could still see these things until around five or six years
ago.  I can still see the screen, but can no longer read the text or see the
details, due to lack of photoreceptior cells in my central (macular) retinal
area,, which of course is why I use Jaws.  But again, so far as I know,
floating tool bars just contain select groups of icons for activating groups
of related functions that you use often and want to keep handy, rather than
being like a program menu that won't stay put.

Hope this helps.

I experience the same thing, there is a menu bar in the middle of the
window.  Use the jaws cursor  and find the menu, on the M of menu bar, left
click twice  and it will go away.  I can not dock the menu bar  permanently
and am not sure what happened that this started recently.  I have checked
every setting I know to.

Subject: A Jfw and Microsoft Word Problem

Hi,

I am experiencing this problem with JFW 6 and Word 2000.  Lately, when I
open a document, Word will say the following, while I'm writing or reading
in the document.

Menu  File  Edit  View  Format  Tools Table  Window Help

What is going on here?  This is interfering with my documents.  It doesn't
print this out, but it still make things quite confusing.

Claudia
