I always just hit alt+c to change the highlighted word to the suggested
word. I may have to tab to the suggestions list and then down arrow to
the right word, but alt+c always works.
alt+g for ignore all
alt+I for ignore once
and there are a few more I don't use often enough to remember.

Subject: Word 2007 spellcheck with Jaws

I have noticed that Jaws 9 and Jaws 10 both have a problem selecting a
corrected word in the spellcheck dialog for Microsoft Word 2007.
Tabbing and arrowing to the correct option, and then just pressing
return on that item does not work.  It leaves the misspelled word
unchanged.  The only way to select the misspelled word is to route the
Jaws cursor and perform a mouse click.
Have others noticed this?  Does Jaws 11 fix this?
Many thanks,
