Re: "Unselected" in Word and JAWS

You may try pressing "Esc" after performing the F8 operation. This seems to
work for me.

Subject: "Unselected" in Word and JAWS

In JAWS 12, after performing a concluding operation to text marked with F-8
in Word, the "selection" is turned off, and JAWS announces this.
In JAWS 13, this "selected" status is retained, and it causes huge problems,
which is one of 31 reasons why I keep giving up on JAWS 13 and go back to
JAWS 12.
Has anyone else noticed this nasty bug? Also, I may be a couple of releases
behind. Does anyone know if this problem has been fixed in recent releases
of JAWS 13?
I sometimes wonder how Freedom Scientific can break so many things that used
to work well when it adds something new. Guess its all the resources they
devote to Research It.
