Hi,

I see.  You mean the site's simpler, more logical and that's very pleasing. 
I hope I conclude the same as I become accustomed to it.  I downloaded a 
.pdf file that's apparently an introduction to, or description of, the 
redone site design.  I look forward to finding my way around it once more.

As for the two features you mention, two questions:  First, you say that 
they're available in Jaws Pro.  I confess I'm too rushed right now to wish 
to go into my Jaws documentation look up these features to see if they're 
mentioned in my Jaws standard version, so did you mean that they're special 
features available only in the Pro version?  That's what your wording 
implied.  I was under the impression that the only meaningful distinction 
between Jaws regular and Jaws pro versions was their ability to work with 
different operating systems.

Also, you say you haven't tried those features yet, but then also describe 
how they've enabled you to read certain features of the Audible web site 
more efficiently.  I was confused by this.  Do you mean, that's what those 
two features ought to do for you when you get around to trying them?

Thank you very much for clarifying.  I can see there's going to be something 
of a learning curve, as they say, before I can get back to my audible 
surfing and shopping with any grace.  By the way, I've heard that there's a 
new Audible Manager, and I'm wondering how and when a customer finds out 
about it?  The first time you purchase something and go to download it? 
Does the new Audible Manager install itself then, for instance?

Thanks for all explanation you can offer.

I have no vision; jazzy just meant the site was responsive and had a more
logical structur than the earlier version. Once you get used to the new
organization of topics.

Document presentation mode and the screen setup are 7.0 Pro options that
help navigation in a number of ways, all of which I have not yet tried.

In htm and web environments, tables are usually spoken by column; the
document presentation and screen setup let's you listen to the tables by
row, with vertical lines separating the cells.

I can now hit the down arrow key in the title column of the table and find
the book I'm looking ifor at 20% or so the number of key strokes I usually
had to in the standard reading order.
