Bob and others, ResearchIt is a very handy tool that I use often to check on 
Stock prices and UPS shipments. However the way FS designed it, it's very 
fragile and dependent on the underlying web page not changing enough to make it 
fail to find the information.

So far we've been fortunate that the Wiki sites are stable.

  I use research it all the time to check on such things as news, weather and 
sports games.

  But, I didn't know it would plug a word in from the text you were on. Makes 
looking up things in wictionary and wicapedia much easier.

  Oh, I have no idea what “WALLA” means!

    Hi Listers,

    I can confirm that this feature works with MS Word 2010 Windows 7 and Jaws 

    This was my first look at the “Research” feature, and I’m impressed.

    BTW, what does “WALLA” mean?

    ZY!, I will say that it does. And how many times it has saved my life! It 
is very useful on a test... I mean, during class. lololollolol

    Hi folks,

    I just discovered what, most likely, everyone else has known all along.

    In MS Word 2007, W7 and JAWS 11, latest build, one can focus on a 
particular word, go to research and, WALLA the word you focused on is in the 
search box.

    This is as slick as sliced bread. (LOLLOLLOL)

    Wonder if this is still working in JAWS 12.
