    Hello friends,

    I have my keybaord echo set to words but when I press the tab key when 
navigating, JAWS still says tab, does anyone know where i can just turn this 
off please, any easy steps would be nice :-)  I think that it is in the 
keyboard manager but am not sure.

    many thanks in anticipation,
