Hi, folks.

Well, let's see if we can solve another of my work-related issues here.

At work, I am in a position where I receive edited documents that I create 
in Microsoft Word, and send to my supervisor for his feedback.

When he does the editing, he does something in Word called "track changes 
on".  What he does is insert comments into my prepared text, that I then 
need to respond to by adding stuff, deleting stuff, or changing some of the 
original text.

My problem is that I often can't tell where his changes are, and then, when 
I try incorporating his suggested  changes into the document, I can't get 
rid of his edits and replace them with mine.  Often, I get his edits, plus 
my changes.

Has anyone had experience with this feature of Microsoft Word, and how do 
you get around it with Jaws?
