RE: Jaws not allowing selecting words or characters in word, wordpad or notepad.

Hi,

This is not exactly the problem, the problem is that if you wish to cut,
copy and paste you can't use the shift key to select text.

Hi David,
Try this out:
Turn the Num Lock on and then press:
Down arrow: to select the current line.
Up arrow: to select the prior line
For the Next line: Turn the Num Lock off, come to the start of the line
which you want to select. Turn the Num Lock on again and press Down
arrow to select the current line.
Control+Left arrow & Control+Right arrow for selecting the prior and the
Next word.
Right and Left arrow for selecting the prior and the next character.
Control+Up arrow and Control+Down arrow for selecting the prior and the 
Control+next
paragraph.

Please do not use the Shift key.
Turn the Num Lock off, once you have finished selecting.

I am using Windows Xp Home and Jaws 5.0 and it works for me in Microsoft
Word, however I have not tried for Notepad and Wordpad.

Its not a fix, but atleast a workarround.
Try it, might work for you as well.
