Re: want help with headers in Word 2000

I think it may be helpful to add a couple of details.  First, a header is 
set up either by default or by modifying it to allow for only a certain 
number of lines of text.  I no longer remember where you look to ascertain 
what the default is, or how to change it if you must, except to say refer to 
Word help to find out.

Second, a header is of course placed at the top of the page in a space 
allotted for it above where the actual text of the document begins on that 
page.  Just so, the footer is placed at the bottom, beneath the last line of 
text.  But within the editing area for a header or footer, you can do most 
things you'd be able to do in the body of a Word document, and you have to 
be aware of this.  You can't just type something and exit.  The result would 
possibly look very odd to a sighted person.  You can set the font to be the 
same as the font of your document, or different, larger or smaller, and so 
forth.  More important, you can determine whether what you type is 
left-aligned, or centered, or whatever.  Most  commonly, the text within a 
header is supposed to appear on the upper right side of the page,unless you 
have a purpose in placing it differently.  So you must use the same 
formatting controls as in the body of a document-- tabs, right alignment, 
whatever-- to achieve this.  As you work in that area, Jaws will speak and 
behave the same as in a Word document, so it won't be that mysterious.

Hope that helps yet more.

Yes. The following is an old message from Debbie Scales...
This is a helpful hint on JFWLite in the word section that Cathy Anne
wrote
up for us once.
Adding a header:
1. open the view menu
2. press enter on header and footer
3. you may input the text for the header immediately or, you may access
the
header/footer tool bar for more options.  To access the header/footer
tool
bar, press the alt key and then press control + shift + tab to access
the
tool bar.  You may use the right and left arrow key to navigate through
the
options.
And just an additional note from me, you can close the header dialog
with
alt C once you are finished creating the header.

Hi All

Is it possible for a blind person to use Jaws to create headers.
