I think I've found a workaround for Access 2007 that does not require the use of a second screenreader-the JAWS cursor. I'd still rather find a real fix, but I played around enough to know this works. I should be able to go to the record I wish to read or edit using the usual Find command, just as in the past. Each record appears as a single line, and clicking inside the field of interest has the same effect as using the F2 key. In fact, one should be able to click on the exact character he wishes to either edit or delete. Looking around, JAWS tells me the color scheme is something strange like red on gray. Wonder if that could be the problem. Ted Ted Lisle, PH.D., Medicaid services Specialist; phone: (502) 564-2574, X 2054; Fax: (502) 564-2228.
