Hi,

Well, that's certainly interesting.  But as this message is a few years old, 
and one has to consider that both applications, in fact all three, have 
changed considerably since then, I wouldn't presume anything one way or the 
other. but it would be interesting to learn about a definite connection.

It's the Norton office plug-ins that do it. As for why or how, I haven't
the slightest, other than a guess that A-V may be checking Word
documents for viruses. Here's a message from Debbie Scales from a few
years ago...
"there was a problem found with Norton and word with jaws.  People
using Window Eyes were having the same problem.  This solved it for a
lot of
people, give it a try and see if it helps.

Go into the Norton Anti-virus options and use your jaws cursor to find
the
word miscellaneous.  Then left click on the word miscellaneous.  If you
are
using Norton 2003, you may just be able to tab to miscellaneous and
press
the space bar.  But somehow get to the miscellaneous options so that
when
you tab you find a checkbox for enable office plug ins.  Press the space
bar to uncheck it. Then tab and enter on okay."

Are you using Norton Anti-Virus?

Hi folks, I suspect that this is a Word problem but am not entirely
sure.

I am using Office 2000 professional, Windows XP Pro & JAWS 5.0.

I just started to have a really weird problem that I initially put down
to
Word but now am not quite so sure.

I suddenly stopped being able to move around through word documents with
the
cursor and JAWS would not read what was being typed.  The only way I
could
read was with Insert+down arrow, reading a paragraph at a time.

I got my good lady wife to check out the screen & to my surprise,
although
the Word toolbars etc. were present at the top of the screen & my
document
was listed on the task bar, all that was visible where the document
should
be was the desktop & icons...

As I said, JAWS was able to read the text with insert+down arrow.

If I went to full screen on the view menu, the document reappeared and
all
moving/typing functions returned to normal.

I tried erasing the normal.dot file, no change, then completely
uninstalled
and then reinstalled office.  Still no joy.

As I said, not sure if it is Word or JAWS, anyone got any ideas?

Barry G
