Thanks, I don't know why some people just like to treat fellow listers so 
rudely. If you don't want to help, don't respond but this is not the way to 
handle the issue.
I appreciate someone for speaking up.

Why lecture a fellow lister in this way? She specified which version of Word 
she was using, showing she understood Word was involved. Then, as listers are 
always demanding, she stated the version of JAWS she is using.

Moreover, if she was speculating that JAWS and MS Word sometimes interact in 
ways that make Word operate differently from the way sighted users experience 
it, she had good reason. Just recall how the adjust JAWS options dialog and the 
configuration manager can be used to affect the ways we work with various 

If she hadn't recognized the possibility of a link between Word and JAWS, 
someone was bound to have told her that her question was off-topic. In that 
case, much of what is discussed on this list would be off-topic.

No, I have no idea how to do it with JAWS. But using MS-Word I press Alt+a, 
then i, then r to insert a column to the right.
