Using XP Pro here. And as mentioned JAWS 12.0.525. Mitch, You may want to go to 
your settings manager and look at the Research It setup for the default 
configuration. Maybe you have some things disabled.

  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

          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.

              Cy
