Hi Steve and Shannon,

I keep trying to find out exactly what the purpose of this command is,
and I
hope you can confirm what I think I've figured out.  First of all, just
to
be clear:  Although from personal experience I'm aware that most sighted

computer users habitually refer to selected text as "highlighted" text,
because they see whatever they've selected thrown into relief by being a

different color then unselected text around it, the formal word is
actually
"selected."  Unless, that is, you guys haven't meant this at all, and
are
referring to some other factor that would result in the text being shown
in
a different color, or just brighter or darker.  But I opened a Word doc
I'm
working in, and I bolded a word then applied this key combination, and
it
simply said "no text selected."  So I conclude that "highlight" is being

used to mean "selected."  Yes?  That's not quibbling.  It's a meaningful

distinction.

Now, if that's what is of concern, here, selected text, do you use this
after, let's say, you've selected a few words, or a paragraph, or
whatever
in a document or in some other environment (maybe on a Web page or
something?) and you want to confirm that you included in your selection
exactly what you want selected, before applying some formatting feature,
or
cutting or copying it?

Thanks.  I know this question must seem dense, because no one's answered
it
specifically.  But if this is the purpose of Shift Insert down arrow,
it's a
nice new editing tool to know about.  Thanks.

expereince lthogh you

Um...insert 8? Or you could also try hitting insert F and seeing if the
font you are on is highlighted or bold or whatever.

Hi All,

Could someone tell me how you have Jaws announce which block of text is
highlighted in a Word document?  I've looked through the Help file and I
can't seem to find it.  I also looked on the Freedom Scientific site and
I couldn't find it there either.  Thanks!

Michael
