Have you contacted FS? I think that JAWS 9 is now operating on Office 2003 an 
d2007, and they have left 2002 behind. See if that's a possible problem.

  Hi Larry,

  Thanks for that, but I don't see why we should have the hassle of doing these 
extra tasks? Yet again, they make it more complex and it falls down on the 

  Please, please FS just get the basics right because I really don't want to 
consider Window Eye's!

    Hello Dave,
    I've experienced somewhat the same problems as you.  To circumvent the 
issue at hand, I've learned to do one (or several) of the following:

      Firstly, maximize by Alt/space bar and hitting X.
      Secondly, Turning off JAWS by Insert/F4, then turning it on again by 
      Thirdly, when typing in a Microsoft Word document, I found that sometimes 
the arrow keys just didn't work to review what was written.  The other day this 
happened when a sighted person was present.  They related the cursor was way 
off to the right of the screen in the white area.  I simply hit Home or the 
number 7 (Home) on the Num Pad to return the cursor to the text.  Why it 
decides to leave the field of the text, I haven't a clue, but I think perhaps 
it is a problem FS has to address.  I'm working in Microsoft Word 2002.  This 
is only one of many problems experienced, the major being the lethargy of JAWS 
after the computer is on for several hours.  To date, I have received no 
solution for this aggrevating problem.
      Best Wishes,

      Further to my earlier message regarding JFW 9 crashing, another symptom 
is that it will not read a text document after running for several minutes. It 
needs to be re-booted in order for it to read the edit area once more?
