Hi Bob,

When I face similar reading problems, I convert the file to the simple text format, and then I reopen it in notepad. In Word, you can use "save as" dialogue to save the file as simple text.

An upgrade to JAWS is definitely encouraged. Until then, and if you don't mind changing the formatting, Try control plus a to highlight everything.
Then, press control plus shift plus n to switch everything to "normal" style.
Refresh the screen, and then try again.
Of course, if the styles are important, this is a bad idea. At least, however, you should be able to read the text.
Actually, before undertaking the above, a drastic step, you might check the styles in effect on some sample text.
I'm guessing it is a strange one. Try just highlighting one paragraph and changing the style for it. You can use normal, with control plus shift plus n, or pick another style after pressing control plus shift plus s.

I'm using JFW 8 and Word 2003. On one document, and just on this one, when I try to read it word by word as I rewrite the document, on many of the words Jaws only speaks the first letter of the word. If I read letter by letter, it reads correctly. It only happens on this one document. Any suggestions will be appreciated...
