Hi Amir,
As regards item 2) have you installed Beta 4 yet?  Check
where it installed to.  If it still goes into c:\duxbury,
I'll be surprised, and Peter will probably have kittens!
As regards 3) - good idea - let's see what Peter says.
Otherwise F1 context Sensitive help is available throughout,
at least from most menu items and dialogs.  Having said
that, I will be in Westford around the 25th of this month,
and checking all these links is a top priority, along with
attending to other Help issues.
I'm sure Caryn will take on board points 1) and 4)

Subject: [duxhelp] Four suggestions about DBT Win V10.6

Hello listers,
I sent these suggestions for DBT Win V10.6 to the developers
few days ago, but thought I should also post them here.
1. DBT Win is bundled with a set of scripts for JAWS for
Windows. In JAWS one can press a hot key, Control+Insert+V,
to hear the version of the program which has the focus.
However, pressing this hot key in DBT Win forces JAWS to
say: "Version". I suggest that this issue be resolved.
2. Currently DBT Win installs itself in C:\Duxbury.  I
suggest that this path be changed to something like
C:\Program Files\Duxbury\DBT Win. Also, it wouldn't be a bad
idea to use My Documents\DBT Docs, rather than C:\DBT Docs,
for the storage of DBT files. I know that one can use the
suggested folder for the latter manually, but using them by
default is apparently more comfortable.
3. When the focus is in the main DBT Win window, I suggest
that F1 open the online help system.
4. When F2 is pressed to enable/disable the "Six-Key Entry"
feature, I suggest that a message be announced to let users
know if a press enables or disables it. If it's not possible
to make it part of DBT Win, the JAWS scripts can provide
this announcement properly.
Best regards,
