Hi Damien, Does the word template contain a form? If so, it really depends on how the form was created. There are guidelines for creating accessible word forms. I would suggest looking at the microsoft word section in the jaws online help. Specifically look at the helpful hints for word section, where you will find info on navigating word forms.

Hello everyone. I wonder if anyone can help. I've sent this query to the jaws light user group and had no response so thought I'd try vics members. Please accept my apologies if this isn't the kind of thing vics Ireland is for but, I'm getting desperate. This isn't really a specific question, so, I apologise in advance if I'm sounding vague. I'm currently working through a desktop publishing module on my computer course and am trying to use JAWS 8 with templates downloaded from the Microsoft website into ms word 2007. Once downloaded in order to enter information I have to click into place views on each template. and then enter specific information. However, Jaws doesn't read the downloaded template and I can't seem to access the areas of the template that require information. Has anyone had any experience of using jaws and templates downloaded from the Microsoft website and if so, can anyone advise me on the best way forward. Thanks in advance. Damien O'Connor.
