Hi Dave,

thanks for the advise I'll try this at work tomorrow to. Hopefully this or
the other suggestions I've had will get it working otherwise it's a mystery
game when I send an email as to whether it will make any sense to the

I had a similar problem with my Windows Mail. It not only did not read the
message body reliably, but also would not report the status bar.

The way I solved it was to have Windows Mail open, and then close and reload
JAWS 14. It worked fine after that, and I didn't have to perform that step

I'm thinking that JAWS 14 needed to wake up and acquire the window
dimensions and parameters and store them in some sort of default cache.

At least that's my layman's impression.

I'm running the beta 2 jaws 14 at work using xp and outlook 2003. When I
go to type a new message or reply jaws reads the to, cc, subject fields all
fine but then when I go to the message jaws announces 'message but won't
read any text from the message such as my signature, I can type
text and hear the typing echo as I type but then can't go back and review
or hear any of the text I have written its like I'm in a blank email. Has
anyone else had this problem?
