Hi List,

    I tried the latest JAWS 9 update today, that is, the fourth build of
this version. I had reported last month that the first 2 builds of JAWS 9
read telephone numbers properly without having to use any special settings,
but that the third build did not read them correctly.

    Well, I have discovered that this fourth build of JAWS 9 also does not
read them properly, so I am once again back to the second build. 
Furthermore, there is still no fix for the problem of JAWS not reporting the
Copy and Cut commands after Windows Media Player 11 is launched, that is,
until you unload and reload JAWS. It's too bad that fixing some problems
seems to cause more problems that didn't exist before.

    Disappointed,

    Don
