Re: Using win-mx with Jaws.

Wow TerriLinne!

That was great!  One thing I'd like to add if I may.  When you are in the 
list of search resaults, you have to read each line as you down arrow.  For 
some reason, Jaws will not do this automatically.  So, you have to hit 
insert up arrow on each resault to read that line.  It can be kind of tricky 
at first.  But after a while, you bang out the key commands like nothing.
