Re: JAWS update?

Ah, the D key? I know a whole lot of single-letter Web page nav commands, 
but I either never knew or have forgotten this one. What does it do?
And let's not get started about Jaws 8 again. It does so many things wrong 
I've stopped keeping a list of its misbehaviors for composing an orderly 
message to FS. Whenever I get cranky about it stopping reporting when I've 
saved or copied a file in Windows Explorer, or that I'm moving a message 
from one folder to another in OE, or makes it impossible to maximize a text 
file window in WordPad, or starts announcing frame and other page layout 
information when I go into Forms Mode to fill out something, not to mention 
announcing to me that I'm on a secure server when either I don't care or I 
already know that, or slows down my spell check in OE as if AVG were running 
its morning scan, and more, I just exit the baby and use the hotkey I've 
written to launch Jaws 7. I forget what the big advances in version 8 are 
supposed to be, but I get nearly nothing but inconvenience out of it.

Okay. Done venting. Please, no mlectures about reporting everything to FS. I 
just don't care anymore. I'll download and install the coming updates, just 
to see if anything has improved, but I don't feel like devoting hours of my 
life to be a consumer advocate with FS on this one. It's just too much crap 
to deal with. Hey, at least I vote, okay? :-)

Let's not forget the D key in internet Explorer, which was formerly a
useful navigation command and which does nothing nowadays.
