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

There is an add-on you can purchase to emulate the classis menus in Office 
2007 applications. Google "classic office menus" or something similar.

It doesn't matter which version of JAWS you are using with Word 2007: none
of them work very well with this nightmare of a word processor.  There has
been such a backlash against Word 2007 from some of Microsoft's biggest
corporate customers, that a whole cottage industry of alternative word
processors has sprung up on the web.  Word 2007 was allegedly redesigned to
make it more appealing to academic users at the expense of business users,
who make up the vast majority of Microsoft's customer base.  But don't count
on Microsoft to change Word back to the good old days of manageable menus
and logical line spacing.  The only thing you can do if you're unhappy with
Word 2007 is to use Wordpad, HJ Pad , which is included with JAWS, or
download one of the free word processors.  As I stated previously, the best
of these free word processors is probably Jarte, which is available at:
