Hi Folks,

I have a strange problem with Office 2003 and Jaws 7.0 and Jaws 7.1. Paul Traynor has made some helpful suggestions.

My question is:

Does JAWS 8 definitely work perfectly with Office 2003?

I have problems with JAWS 7 sometimes not knowing the cursor position and not being able to read text on occasions in Word 2003.O

If JAWS 8 is believed to work okay with Office 2003, I would consider upgrading.

Hi Ulla,

As far as I'm aware jaws 8 doesn't support word 2007, or at least not officially. The jaws 8 documentation for word would seem to co oberate
this, as it says that the information  in the help files has only been
tested for versions of  word from 2000 to 2003.

Having said that you could try jaws 8 with word 2007 and many of the normal
features may work.

I know this might seem like a very simple question but would anyone know if
JAWS 8 is compatible with Office 2007?

All the PCs in work are now being upgraded and I don't want to have 2007
installed if there are any major issues with it.  I am currently using
Office 2003 - a bit old hat I know but it works perfectly. Is it a case of
if it ain't broken don't fix it?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Best regards.
