In word2003, the line spacing is announced if it is doubled space when you press Jaws key plus f -- but you already have had to change the spacing.

To my knowledge it *only* works in Microbloat Word. I am using Word 2003.

I just tried jaws key plus f in microbloat (what a great word!) and all it told me was the font, the size and the justification, but not the line spacing.
    I'm using JAWS 9...
Am I missing something? Or is there a default line spacing, and JAWS only tells you if it's something other than the default?

Hi Ray,
Okay, in Microbloat Word JAWS will tell you the font, style, line spacing and other things with JAWS key + F.
This does not seem to work in Microbloat Outlook or Outlook Distress.
JAWS key + num row 5 will tell you color.

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?

Thanks for any help,
