Re: JAWS 13 Doesn't read attachments

I am using JAWS version 13.0.527, the update released prior to the one that
came out earlier this week, and Outlook 2003. I go to attachments with
insert-a and am experiencing no new difficulties locating all items there.

Subject: JAWS 13 Doesn't read attachments

All:
I've had to switch back to JAWS 12, temporarily, I hope.
For those of you using Outlook 2003, you know there are two ways (at least)
of accessing email attachments:
1. From the Inbox listing, one can right-click, press shift plus F-10, or
press the Applications key to produce a list of choices. One has a submenu
called "View attachments."
In JAWS 12, I can see 13 attachments to this particular message I have.
Only one attachment shows up in JAWS 13. This is a huge problem.
2. When in the message, by pressing control plus shift plus o, one can
change the format to plain text. This puts all the attachments up in an
attachment box. In JAWS 13, when I arrow along in that box, all I hear is
semicolon. In JAWS 12, the attachment is identified, the file attachment
name, and the size are stated.
If this has been mentioned before, I apologize. I've only been distractedly
following the list of late. I'd like to know if this has been reported as a
nasty bug. We should be moving to Office 10 soon. So, perhaps this is only
a matter of historical significance.
Nevertheless, for the present, in this regard, JAWS 13 is definitely a step
backwards. This makes JAWS 13 a non-starter for me. Wonder if I can get my
wasted SMA back and wait for JAWS 14? I think it will likely snow in Hades
first. <SMILE>
