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.

Isn't life exciting? (LOLLOLLOL)

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.

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:

For example.
