If this is any help - Windows Messenger is a core component of Windows XP, so 
you can just use it instead of MSN if you feel more comfortable with it.  
Having said that, though, I don't have any issues with conversation windows in 
MSN messenger, although there are are a lot of fancy features viz 
pictures/imoticons in the latest version 6, whereas this is stripped out in WM. 
 There is a version 7 of MSN Messenger, not sure what this has over V6 both 
with features and accessability.

Just joined recently.

How well does Jaws work with the MSN Messenger?  I've got it, but am having
difficulty sending messages.  I've not used this one before.  when I was at
Hereford, I was using Windows Messenger and whichever version of Jaws they
were running, maybe 4.5, I think.  It worked really well.  With MSN I can
see who's online but can't seem to read conversations, and am not sure how
to reply.  I see the typing field, but nothing seems to happen when I try to
respond.  I think that in WM, I just hit enter after I finished typing, but
haven't used it in around a year, so maybe I got it wrong.

Any help would be good.
