Alan,

I have JAWS 11.147 on my HP laptop with W7 64 bit and the research it
function seems to work pretty well.

Just press the JAWS key+space bar. Then press the letter "R" and there you
are.

Enter whatever thing you want to know about, tab down once and then arrow up
or down until you find the area you want to search in such as "weather", Zip
code" Wickipedia or whatever and then press enter for the answer.

To exit the function simply press the esc key and you are back exactly where
you were before you entered the research it function.

Hello Friends,

Does JAWS 11 have the Research It option?

Not that I want to learn it, as I use "Google Accessible" and that seems to
always serve me pretty well, but just wanted to know, in case I get
ambitious some day.

 

Thanks, and I really appreciate your thoughts Cy and Dave!

Mitch,

Your problem is that you are not holding your mouth in the correct position.

Are you W7 64 bit?

Dave, I have that version and, using their examples exactly, I get no
results FWIW.  Mitch

Very instructive and I also just learned that the Currency Research Feature
is not working in my latest iteration of JAWS 12.  :-)  Mitch

Cy and list, just a reminder, when using the research it widget, you can get
help on the input format by tabbing once after selecting the particular
research operative.  This can be helpful in being sure you use the correct
format for the item.

By Golly Miss Molly, it worked, thanks.

I was trying to use commas or semicolons as delimiters.

Nice.
