"Unselected" in Word and JAWS


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

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.

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

Right, but now I have to remember. Do you think Freedom Scientific deliberately screwed this up, or was it an unintended consequence of some other "fix."
I know JAWS 12 screwed up Excel badly; however, I would cast my vote for JAWS 13 being the all time worst screw up -- at least as far as Word and Outlook are concerned.
I remember JAWS 8 being a real mess too, but my experience doesn't go back any earlier than that.
