Re: Windows 7 Word XP Jaws HELP

Hi Crystal
Are you meaning that jaws isn't working with the Word XP or with the
whole Windows 7? If its the whole Windows 7, is the version of jaws
you have high enough for it? I mean, I think you need jaws 10 at least
for win 7. If its the Word, as far as I've heard the new jaws doesn't
support old office suites properly? Sorry I can't help you further,
maybe you'll have to wait for sighted help, but strange jaws doesn't
perform properly. Maybe also try restart and see if it works better,
or try with NVDA.
