Hi all. 
I use JAWS 12 and Windows 7. 
Sometimes, after my wife has been fooling with the computer, I find the 
keyboard frozen, useless.  She can do stuff with the mouse, but somehow she 
kills the keyboard. 
Does that happen to anybody else, and if so what can I do, short of shutting 
down the computer, which is not always a good option for me.

That will come in handy in the future.  Glad you sent it on. 
For now—the attachment is already here. It needs to go to “My documents.”  I 
couldn’t make that happen yesterday. 
Glad you got in touch.

Hi, all.
I have JAWS 12, and use Windows Live Mail 11.  I have to attach a document into 
the “My documents” file from an e-mail, and so far I can’t.
Also, I can’t delete contacts from my contacts list, what used to be called 
“Address book” in Outlook Express.  Freedom Scientific had no help at all for 
me, and neither did my sighted friend who put the computer together. He can 
only do things with the mouse, not the keyboard, so has no idea what keys will  
get me to the Contacts List.
