  is Windows Mails synonymous with OE on XP?

    Hi, anyone noticing odd behaviour when using JAWS 9 beta and Windows Mail? 
I think it's where a word starts with a comma after the word that the behaviour 
starts. JAWS appears to pause, if not stop altogether, during a say all, and I 
have to perform a say all again to read the message again. (Sorry, what I meant 
by say all is that when JAWS begins to automatically read the message.) I may 
file this to the bug report team if no one else has. Thanks in advance.

      I haven't noticed any instabilities in the beta so far here and all 
issues reported so far have been minor.  Overall it's much better than 8.0 was 
for me.

        Not having this problem but would certainly say that the jaws 9 beta 
has becfome more unstable over time, not better.

        I've tried deleting my settings and still not much better.

        Worked like a dream when first beta came out.

        I have mentioned this before and latest updates to 9 are still not 
curing it.

        The cursor seems to be bouncing on links and a lot of repeating going 

        Using a placemarker to keep jumping back to the same required link, 
Jaws will repeat other text on the page before settling on the place marked 
link.  There is a hot key for this desired link of Alt T, when I use this 
instead of the place marker all seems to work well, only found this out 
yesterday.  Hopefully that will give them a clue.

        I have reported this to FS on earlier versions of 9.

        Using IE7 and XP Pro

        Interested to know if anyone else is experiencing this.  I appreciate 
that this site I am on is not required for making my living but it is very 
annoying and Jaws 8 did not have this problem.
