Re: Skipping through misspelled words (was Jaws 7.1, etc.)

Hi Judith,
First, these new commands mentioned are, as I think you saw in the Freedom 
Scientific newsletter online, new for the update that's coming soon.  As for 
the other thing you say, I am not sure why you're telling me that.  I always 
use the spell checker with the grammar checking function turned off and, as 
I said, I never have it simply running all the time to interrupt me.  My 
main "spelling" problems are actually just that I now make a lot of typos I 
don't feel myself making (though sometimes I am aware of them).  When  I was 
fully sighted, I saw what I was typing and immediately fixed errors as I 
went along, and I made fewer errors to begin with.  Now, if I didn't spell 
check everything, it would look as if I were typing while drunk.
So that's my primary use for the spell checker, and if I left it on, it 
would disrupt my thinking as I wrote, which would make things impossible. 
Hope this is clear.

Are these commands for jfw 7 or 7.1?  Also, if you want to run just a spell
check on a document and don't want any grammer input just uncheck the "check
grammer" utility in the spell check.  Judith
