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.
