Hello George,

As for the default installation folder, I sent my post before installing the 
latest beta release. I found nothing related to this new feature on the DBT Win 
beta testing home page and I thought that hasn't been implemented yet.

  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!  (Smile)

  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,
