Re: Hello Jaws, meet Word07. Who's that?

Caroline,

...and you can minimize the ribbon so that your classic 2003 menus are the 
dominant tool.

And, the thing is, there's a big difference between true inaccessibility and
just plain change. I don't like Word 2007, plain and simple. However, it's
not due to inaccessibility, it's due to the fact that I've been using Word
since the 1997 version, and I'm used to my options being where I think they
should be. But, this has absolutely nothing to do with JAWS. I have a
program that I purchased for $30 that gives me back my 2003 menu options,
yet still gives me the ribbon, so I've got the best of both worlds so to
speak. But, inaccessibility and unfamiliarity are just two different things.
