Re: Reading spaces in a Word Doc

John ESherrer

Hi Dave
I thought about that, but I want two spaces between asentances. I did think
about doing as you say, and then coming back and looking for a period and
one space and replace it with a period and two spaces. But that would leave
two spaces after each paragraph, and that would not hurt anything.

Rather than trying to find those double spaces manually, just do this:

Ctrl+H for search and replace
2. Type two spaces in the find field.
3. Tab and type a single space in the replace field.
4. Alt+a to find and replace all.
5. Press Enter on okay when it's done, and press Alt+A again to find any
more (you might have some triple-spaces or more that need trimming.
6. Repeat until zero occurrences are found.
7. Escape out of the dialog.

Hi JAWS Users
Does JAWS have the ability to read the spaces in a Word document?
I am using W7 and Word 2007.
I am proof reading a long document, and sometimes I will hit the space bar
twice, so I want to fix this in the document.
