Subject: in windows 7 with 64 bit jaws reads folder groups


Really didn't know how to state this in subject line, but if anyone may have 
worked with Windows 7 on 64 bit machines, you'll know that when you open 
folders they are set up in a weird way and Jaws just isn't reading them right.  
Apparently these folders are set up in groups from, say 0 to 9; and then songs 
or other things starting with a through h has its own little group, etc.  So 
when opening a folder Jaws can no longer say exactly how many items you have, 
and as you select files (or try to) Jaws keeps saying the group your items are 
in, like for instance it keeps saying q through z or whatever group.  
Apparently these aren't trees and I have been told that the folders are in a 
list view, but that isn't the way Jaws reads them.  I just wondered if there is 
a fix for this--like somehow getting rid of these 0 to 9 or whatever boxes, or 
if not is there a way in Verbosity to stop it from always saying what group 
you're in as you select?  Why they've grouped folders like this I don't 
understand, but that's another issue.  I just wonder if someone has done 
something to get folder views back into normal, XP-type list views so Jaws 
reads the whole list and can see the exact number of files you really 
have--instead of Jaws getting hung up in one of these letter group boxes.

Thanks.
