This may seem a shade off topic, but for once, we have an opportunity to try a new feature which I personally believe will be of benefit to many DBT users. As you are aware, DBT has become more Unicode oriented, and can now display many more characters in screen than earlier versions. Unfortunately the current version of JAWS does not speak many of these. I know also from the Duxuser list, and support generally, that many of you have come across strange characters in Word files, often for example used for bullets. I now have a beta Unicode Symbol file for JAWS 7, which may well make it into JAWS 7.1, with a fuller version planned for JAWS 8 this summer. Not only does this make much of the Word Insert Symbol dialog accessible, it also speaks an English description of all manner of characters, such as the Telephone character, pointing fingers, Greek characters and all sorts. However, I am also concerned that this has no adverse side effects for DBT users. If you would like to try this file out, please contact me directly at george@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and I will send you a 110k zipped eloq.sbl file to try out. George Bell.
