Having just updated to the latest version of JAWS 11, I note more erratic 
behaviour than formerly in reading messages using Windows Live Mail.

Hi David,

 

O.K., my table was a bit bigger.  228 rows, and columns of an automatic number, 
a MathType sign,  braille sign, text, Unicode Reference, MathML Code, TeX code 
and text comments.

 

I'm also having to work on this on various systems between home and office, and 
on some systems it seems to mess up the video, resulting in weird video issues 
very similar to those you are describing.  Since I only run JAWS on one of 
those systems, and only then for occasional customer support, I can't put the 
blame on JAWS.

 

George.

Hi George,

 

The problems I had, (but don't have with Jaws 10), came on after downloading 
the new update or patch to Jaws 11.  It didn't just affect Word documents but 
also my emails in WLM.  The emails were there with the subject lines but no 
readable contents.  Similarly with newsgroups.

 

Interesting what you say about large tables, the one I mentioned had 3 columns 
and 70 rows but that shouldn't have affected my emails.

 

Anyway, I'm still investigating possibilities when I think of them.

 

Regards

 

David

  Hi David,

   

  What version of Word are you using?  I'm not using JAWS, but I have been 
having nasty problems only recently, with a massive Word table.

   

  George.

  Hi list,

   

  I have just tried Jaws 10 on my system and it now appears to be working fine. 
 So, it is not unreasonable to suppose that Jaws 11 has been buggered up in 
some way and will, no doubt, be corrected shortly.

   

  If I can define the symptoms more precisely, I brought up a Word document 
with a long table of information.  It was telling me which row and column I was 
on but all the data I had inputted was apparently not there or not being read.

   

  There has been a loud silence on this list since yesterday, wondering if 
others have had similar problems.

   

  Regards

   

  David
