Word lists, pretty cool things!
No, I’m not Smith, but I can give you a little tutorial on the word list. When you’re in a Microsoft Word document, or something else I presume and you want to bring up the word list, just hit insert CTRL and w. This’ll bring up the word list, and words are indexed by how many times they’ve been used. In other words, if you’ve used the word sociology a bunch of times in your document, it’ll show up with that number of uses behind it in the list. The words which’ve only been used once won’t have a number, but they’ll be near the bottom of the list. Here’s the neat thing though! If you search for a word—I’d do this by either trying to type a couple letters of it but searching the list by arrow works too--, you can press enter on the first time that word’s used. When your navigation quick keys are turned on (insert z), you can hit a plain w to go to the next instance of that word. However, IF YOU SEEK TO ARROW THROUGH this document while your quick-nav is running, you will have to turn it back on in order to find the next occurrence of your word. You cannot edit the document when this is on, so you’d have to turn it off beforehand. However, the word list gives you an idea of how many times you’ve used certain words/the whole documents worth of words common or not. If you need any more help, feel free to either send to apiccinino@... or write to the list. Yes, this goes for everyone here since, in my opinion, these aren’t really talked about. When you need extra help than I’ve provided, the JAWS help topics in training (JAWS window and alt h for the help) can assist you. Word lists are near the bottom of the books of training materials. If you’ve not updated this in a while, just press enter as if you were going to read and follow any instructions to download a new version of the book.
Thank you for reading, and I hope these tips help,

I haven't heard about wordlists at all,besides of course when pressing w on a webpage. so could you explain what they are and how do they work?
or point me to a help file/dock that explains it?
