Strange problem with Jaws and Microsoft Word

Tom Behler

Hi, all.

I have just noticed a strange problem when using Jaws with my work computer when in Microsoft Word.

When I am editing a document, all of the other characters speak except for the space. In other words, when I hit the space bar, nothing happens. It used to be that Jaws would say "blank", to indicate the existence of a blank space.

I have never seen this happen before, and can't imagine why Jaws will not speak this character.

Does anyone have suggestions for correcting this?

Just for the record, I'm using Jaws 11 with Windows XP and office 2007 at work.
