Ah ha, I sort of found where the problem is, but do not know how to fix it.  It 
is the setting under configuration manager, keyboard options where there are 
settings for using the insert key.  I cannot make any changes there that will 
allow me to use the ins key on the num pad to read what text is selected, but 
can use the ins key on the six pack, along with the shift and down arrow and 
that will read the selected text.
So, it is doable but awkward.

I get verbal feedback from other keystrokes when in Keyboard help mode and I 
have tried every combination that I can think of using the shift, ins and down 
arrow, but the only time I get silence is when I use these three together. How 
frustrating.  It doesn't seem that a key not working would have this result.

Do you get verbal feedback from other keystrokes when in Keyboard help mode?  
Could it be a key on your keyboard that is not working properly?
 
Cheers
Chris

I am using beginner verbosity level.    .
When in Keyboard help mode, Jaws does not speak out details of the shift insert 
down arrow keystroke when I press it.  What can I try next?  Guess I might have 
to just not tell my student there is supposed to be such a keystroke.
Cheers
Thanks for your reply and if you have any further suggestions, I would really 
appreciate hearing them.  It is embarrassing when you are supposed to be 
teaching and don't have answers.

What verbosity level are you using?  It's Insert 1 for Keyboard help and yes, 
shift insert down arrow should read out all the selected text. .    
 
When in Keyboard help mode, does Jaws speak out details of the shift insert 
down arrow keystroke when you press it?
 
Cheers
Chris

Yes, there is text selected and when I use shift insert down arrow, I hear 
nothing.  When I checked the keystroke after using insert 2 for keyboard help, 
I just got silence.  Out of curiosity, I unloaded JFW 7 and loaded 4.51 and the 
same was true there.  In both programs, when I used the control a to select all 
text, jaws would start reading all of that text.  But, when I select by shift 
down arrow a couple of times for selecting lines, as I shift down arrow, jaws 
will read those lines and say they are selected.  So, jaws will only say what 
is selected as it is selected Am I right that insert shift down arrow is 
supposed to read all text that is selected?
 
Hope I am making myself clear.

Hi Donna,
Are you sure that there is text selected when trying this command?
 
Are you getting any kind of feedback?
 
Have you tried to lock the keyboard into help mode with insert + 1 and trying 
that keyboard command?
 
You have exactly the same configuration as I do and have not run into this 
problem.

I am using Windows XP Home, JFW 7, MS Word 2002.  I have not used this 
feature for a long time, but when I select text, then try to use the read 
selected text keystroke, which is supposed to be shift insert down arrow, 
nothing happens.  Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong.  I am supposed 
to teach selecting, cut copy and paste, but this keystroke does not work. 
Help!!!
Donna and Lettie
