Subject: JAWS reading problems

Does anyone have this happen?

It does not seem to matter what program I am using. It could be an email, or a word processing file. It could be the heading of the focused item, such as in the List View of my Inbox. If it is even a word processing task I am doing using Wordpad. And I am reading text using navigation comands by sentence or by paragraph, strange things are taking place.

My most recent update of Jaws version 11 is now doing this too often any longer to ignore doing these peculiar things and it is really affecting my work.

JAWS seems to be speaking the previously focused thing focused, rather than the current thing.

I am finding that just writing and editing what I write to be just crazy.
At first, I thought it was just me. But it seems to be happening a whole lot.

The reading of the simple current cursor position seems to not be responding correctly.

When this is happening, on say the List View of my Windows Live Mail inbox, the focus needs to be changed back and forth before I can be sure which email is being focused upon. Otherwise I might delete the wrong thing!

Perhaps it is related, but I find this cursor thing happens also when writing an email. On this email for example, I am writing to you in plain text using Windows Live Mail.

I may be going along alright. And then when I go back to the top of my email text I have written, the sounds occur for that JAWS form mode, the upward pitch for on and downward pitch for off.

Right now, here at the bottom of my message, hit down arrow. I hear the downward pitch. And arrow up and then the upward pitch.

So, am I crazy? Can anyone explain, or suggest what is going on, or how to better manage it?

There is a delay also in the repsonse, if that helps. If I go too quickly, the focus will be off for sure. I have 1 GB of RAM on this Windows XP machine. In other ways it seems fairly quick and working well.

Thanks.
Rik
