Hi judith

Make sure your screen echo is set to   highlighted.

Press insert+s until you hear jaws saying: highlighted. Then jaws will
read selected text.  hth

Gary, For whatever reason jaws does not start reading the document after
it is selected, I know that is the way it is supposed to be but it is
not what happens.  Thanks!

        Hi Judith,


        You don't need to be concerned with scripts.  Control+a in MS
Word and other Windows programs selects the entire document.  Since the
document is then highlighted, JAWS will begin to read it.  Press Control
to stop speech, and then perform whatever operation you wish to do on
the document.  The document will stay selected until you press any of
the cursoring keys.

                Is there a keystroke that would announce when someone
selects an entire document?  Thanks, Judith
