it appears that versions of Jaws after 8.0.423 can have several different problems. I think I have written before that a person I know can not install any version after 8.0.423. It completely makes his keyboard unusable. When he types a letter jaws announces a different one to what he has pressed. For example if he types W he might hear Period spoken. Apparently most of the letters are jumbled up. Tech support have suggested removing personalized settings and all the stuff that has been written before with no luck. I think he is becoming interested with the latest payment plan from GW Micro, and is considering changing to WindowEyes.

That just about cuts it for this .2107 build, doesn't it.  Let's 86 that baby!

Thanks. Yes, I understand about maximizing the edit field. However, having returned yesterday to the earlier 8.0.423 version of JAWS, I can now confirm that I don't get verbalized blank spots any more. It was a problem that .423 solved me and that 8.0.2107 unhappily restored, whether o not the field was maximized.

Glad to hear that. BTW, the FS guy said that if the problem with editing in OE occurs when editing new, replys or forwards to messages, then AutoSizer might fix it. He explained that even if you have OE set to open maxamized, the message window reverts to restored, which can cause the blank spaces problem when editing. He said it works for him, so might be worth a try.
