Something I've just discovered is that, whilst in reading mode, if you press 
the same shift key five times, it activates sticky keys.  What a voyage of 
discovery this subject has promoted.

Barry,
That's a good point.  I usually use control to stop speech but perhaps I
should be using up arrow as sometimes control moves me a little way from the
line where Jaws was speaking.  This only seems to happen in Internet
Explorer though.  When I pressed control when reading this email in read all
mode Jaws stopped exactly where I pressed control.

In the test I just did I had to press the up arrow twice to get to the line
above so either way it was still 2 key presses for me.

But I just found out that pressing the right arrow key has the same effect
as right shift and the left arrow key the same as left shift.  In other
words pressing the right arrow key when in say all mode moves to the next
line and visa versa.  But i would never have found this if i had not been
testing the system.  Not sure what to say next need time to think.

Thanks,
Nigel
It's not what Operating system you use, it's how productive you are with it.
