Re: regular expression type finds with Jaws

Dan, I used to get the digest format of one of the Jaws lists. I noticed
that there was a line of underlines that separated the messages. So I did a
Jaws find on ten underlines. I then used the down arrow to look at the
message that followed. When I was done with that particular message I did a
"find next" to get to the next message.
I hope this gives you an idea as to what to do as a possible solution.
