O, Lord, I cannot believe that! O, well, yeah, maybe I can--never mind. I think you'll find the solution may be as simple as making a custom highlight. Here's how to do that. 1) open a blank document in word; 2) Put in 1 deliberately misspelled word, e.g., fatige instead of fatigue; 3) Open the spell checker (f7); 4) It'll flag fatige--activate your jaws cursor, either by pressing numpad dash on a desktop or jawsKey p if using a laptop, route the jaws cursor to the pc cursor, & press home; 5) Press ctrl jaws key h (usually insert if using a desktop, often capslock if on a laptop); 6) Press enter to clear the dialog, usually 3 times; This will make the color used by the spellchecker highlighted, & it'll speak from now on. Let us know if that works/not for u. On 7/2/08, Christina <greensleeves1@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hello, all. > Today I am looking for help with JAWS. I am using Microsoft Word 2003 and > JAWS 7.1.500.
