Another combination that works for me is shift, insert, plus 2 or down arrow on the keypad.

How frustrating. It doesn't seem that a key not working would have this result. ----- Original Message ----- From: Mullins, Chris To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, November 08, 2006 9:53 AM Subject: RE: Say Selected Text 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?

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.

It's Insert 1 for Keyboard help and yes, shift insert down arrow should read out all the selected text. .

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. ----- Original Message ----- From: Richard Sherman To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, November 07, 2006 9:22 PM Subject: Re: Say Selected Text 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 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!!!
