MessageHello Val,

Which applications are you using, when you get the "Read Only" message?

Are these document files? If they are, are those files "Read Only" files? You 
can check this by following the steps below:

Open Windows Explorer.

Find and enter the folder where you have the file[s].

Highlight the file[s] in turn. When you have highlighted each file, Route Jaws 
to Pc and press the Right Mouse Button.

Cursor up or down till you find the option, Properties. Hit <ENTER>.

TAB to each check box. Oner of these will tell whether the file is "read Only", 
Checked or Unchecked. It should be unchecked.

This is only one possibility, and may not meet your need. It will depend on the 
application, and whether the file was "Read Only" before upgrading Jaws, or has 
only occurred since the upgrading of Jaws?

  Could anyone help with a solution to my problem?

  I have been a JAWS user for years but since I installed V5 and V5.1 I am 
constantly getting a "Read Only Edit" message when I tab or cursor.  I have 
probably inadvertently checked something but, despite tearing my hair out and 
driving everyone round me demented, I can't seem to get rid of it.  Any ideas?

  Vest wishes
