Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

I am using JAWS 11, latest version on both my W7 laptop and my Dell XP
I have noticed that, when going through my email, JAWS will occasionally not
read the one I have just opened but rather the last one I read. I have found
that one must be *extremely* careful as what JAWS is reading may *NOT* be a
duplicate. (LOLLLOLLOL)
This combined with Yahoogroups habit of sending duplicates causes some
confusion. (LOLLLOLLOL)

Maybe I'm just getting cranky---a definite possibility--but I find myself
saying more and more often to my students, "JAWS is lying to you."

1. When opening a new document or application, JAWS often rereads the
previous screen before reading the screen it just opened. To a newby,
is way confusing.

2. When reading dates, JAWS speaks a 'th' or 'st' or 'rd' after the date,
though it isn't there. It is important to me to know what I wrote, not
JAWS thinks I want to hear.

3. When working with an outline in Word 2010, JAWS often but not
consistently reports the line I just pressed enter on, and not the new
with the outline number. So when I'm planning a party--my favorite
outline--it says "2. send invitations' and not '3', which is where the
cursor is.

I don't think I'm imagining this. Is anyone else having these kinds of
