Well somebody shoot me.
I rebooted my XP Home rig and now the Research It Currency feature is working 
as advertised.  Over & Out.  Mitch

  Mitch,

  You have hit another clue in the JAWS saga.

  For whatever reason JAWS seemes to need a complete re-boot of the computer 
from time to time.

  This was true with XP and seems to be the same with W7.

  The spell check function in Word 2007, W7 64 bit seems to go out into left 
field on a fairly regular basis but after a re-boot it works better. This 
particular function worked better in XP with JAWS 11.

  Geez, too many external factors to have a hope in Hades of pinpointing the 
problem.

  Cy,  You are right.  

    I got no results using the example Josh provided.

  I am using XP Home, no kidding, and if I reboot all may be fine.  Who knows?

    Hi,

    Tell you what, I think it depends on exactly what operating system you are 
using as well as what computer and version of JAWS.

    Let's all try to include this info when seeking info on what works and what 
does not.

    Dave,

    I just now ran a search for Euro to USD and below is the results I 
received. I typed in "1 eur usd".

     

    Convert Currency
    1 euro = 1.3811 US dollars

      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.

            You have to write:

            100 eur usd

            For example.

              Okay happy JFW users,

              I am using JAWS 11, latest build, W7 64 bit and what the Dickens 
is the proper format for the convert currency function?

              I need euros to us dollars. Thanks.
