Tom,

Next time you're in the spelling dialog, use the Tab key to look around at all 
the choices you have.

  Jason and Dave,

  Thank you very much!  Alt-c works great.  I did not know about that hotkey.

    JAWS 11 is better with spell-checker, and you need to start using Alt+C to 
insert the correction, not enter.

      All,

      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,
      Tom
