Hi All:

I received the following question and would like to know if anyone here has an answer:

Is there a way for JAWS to determine if a document is single or double spaced by reading it?

yep, easiest being using your down-arrow key and noticing that every second line is blank. If you're in MS Word, press JawsKey+f and pay attention to what it says after "line spacing".
