This got lost in my drafts folder so is a bit late.

I'm finding all kinds of edit windows where Jaws 7.1 misses characters or
doesn't read parts of lines. Outlook Express edit windows, Word XP, and
various Windows edit boxes. It's very annoying.

Subject: Jaws Won't Read Portions of a Line

At certain points when working in Outlook 2003 or Word 2003, JAWS just
refuses to read a section of a line, for no apparent reason that I can
discern.  If you space over that section of the line, JAWS will say
where each character should be, but when you hit Insert Uparrow to read
line, or other navigation keys, it just won't read that section of the
This can make editing a challenge.

I've tried Insert-Escape to refresh, I've tried maximizing the window, and
still, sometimes it refuses to read.

Any idea what causes this behavior, and how to fix it?

I'm using JAWS 7.0.

Thanks for any advice.
