Re: J2019 Latest Update Hotkey

Hi Holly,
 
I vividly recall getting new Jaws desktop icons which would remove your hotkey with every update, minor or major, 3 Jaws versions ago at least.  That's why I wasn't sure if this last minor update corrected this problem or if I did it without thinking about it.  Apparently they've fixed the problem.  Thank you very much for your input.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!

I think the new shortcut and hot key changes are just for major updates.  This update is still a JAWS 2019 minor update, not a complete new version.

Hi Mike,

 

The update’s change log says,

 

“Other Changes

list of 22 items

• When performing the monthly updates of JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion, the shortcut keystroke on the Desktop Icon used to launch the application, will no

longer be removed during the update process.”.

 

So, it did not remove the desktop shortcut key.

Hi Holly,

 

Just to be clear, you're saying that after you updated you were still able to use your old hotkey keystroke?  The reason for this question is that in past several updates going back to at least Jaws 18 everytime you updated to a new build or updated the version to J2018 or J2019 Jaws would create a new desktop icon wiping out the previously created hotkey keystroke.  If you were able to use your old hotkey that means FS has fixed this issue which irritated many folks.

Re: JAWS not recognizing buttons on indeed.com

JM Casey
 

Hi Ann.

It's been a while since I used it, but even if JAWS didn't recognise them as
buttons, clicking on them usually activated them, from what I remember.
I may have to take a gander and see how much it's changed. I don't think
I've logged in in many months.
It might make a difference, too, what browser you are using.

Content in Word Docs Not Always Being Read by JAWS

Annette Carr
 

Hello,

 

At work I was recently upgraded to Office365 Enterprise and the latest build of JAWS2019 (put out this week), running on a Windows10 platform.  I am having problems with JAWS randomly not reading parts of Word docs.  Where in the document and how much that is not read changes.  I’m particularly having problems with Tables in the Word docs.  I called Vispero support and they had me check and change some JAWS settings, but it did not help.  They asked me to send the document I was using when I first experienced the problem, but my employer would not let me send the doc due to the content.  Now that I have found that it is happening in all Word document, I called Microsoft and they told me it is a JAWS problem and I should talk to JAWS Tech Support.

 

Does anyone have any idea what the problem is and what I can do to fix it?

 

Thanks in advance.

Annette

Skype question,

Hi all,
Some on this list, including me could not see the tool bars in skype.

I asked Eric about it today.
We had just finished going over this key stroke and a few more for the next FSCast due out later in May.
Eric wrote:'

I suspect that for everyone where the INSERT Space, Y, S does not bring your focus to that Skype application window, you are not using the Desktop Application. There is also a Skype App from the Store and there is Skype For Business. Those will not work.

When I open my Start menu, and type Skype, then read the item in the Start Menu you land on, it should be "Skype Desktop App" Otherwise, you are not getting the right one.

If you have office 365 and maybe outlook 2016, the same insert f8

 know it does with the current version of Microsoft 365 and April
JAWS release.

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1904.60 (April 2019) The following is a
list
of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the March 2019 update and
the
April 2019 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page.
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

Improved Heading Navigation When Using the Numbers Row

For years, users have been able to use 1 through
6 on the numbers row to move to specific heading levels on web
pages.
For instance, 1 for level 1 headings,
2 for level 2 headings, 3 for level 3 headings, and so on. However,
this type of navigation only allowed you to move to headings equal
or
lower than the level you were trying to move by. For example, if
you
attempted to move to a level 3 heading, but the very next heading
was
a
level 2, JAWS would announce:
"No more headings at level 3 in this section,"
and would not move past the level 2 heading.

Beginning with the April 2019 update, you can now move to any given
heading level on a page and if it is under a different higher
precedence heading, the immediately higher precedence heading will
be
read so you know that the new heading belongs to a different
section.
For example, if you attempt to move to a level 3 heading which
causes
you to jump past a level 2 heading, JAWS will announce the level 2
heading prior to announcing the level 3 heading so you know you
have
moved into a new section. You can also choose to have JAWS play a
sound
to indicate when you move into a new section or you can switch back
to
the prior behavior which restricted heading navigation to the
current
section.

To configure how JAWS navigates headings when using the numbers 1
through 6, open Settings Center (INSERT+6 on the numbers row), type
"heading" into the Search edit box, select the "Heading Navigation
Using 1-6" option, and then use the SPACEBAR to choose the setting
you
want. Alternatively, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) from your
browser
and configure the "Heading Navigation" setting.

Support for MathType Content When Reading in Office 365 Word
Documents

You can now use JAWS or Fusion to read and study math problems in
Word
documents created using the MathType software from Design Science.
To
use this feature, you must do the following:

* Make sure you are running the April 2019 release of JAWS or
Fusion
along with Microsoft Word from Office 365.
* Install MathType from
Wiris.com
and activate the software as a trial or actual license.
* In Settings Center, make sure the "Use Accessibility Driver for
Screen Capture" check box is selected.

When you encounter a math equation or formula in a document, JAWS
reads
the problem and then says "Math Content." You can then press
INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by EQUALS to open the JAWS Math Viewer so
you
can study the equation in greater detail.

Once the Math Viewer is opened, you can navigate individual parts
of
an
equation like variables, terms, coefficients, exponents, etc. As
you
navigate to the various components, pressing DOWN ARROW will let
you
drill down into and navigate within that level of the equation
using
LEFT and RIGHT ARROW. Pressing UP ARROW will move you back to the
prior
level.
In addition, if you have a Braille display and JAWS is set to
United
States English or Unified English Braille Grade 1 or Grade 2, the
math
equation or formula will be displayed in Nemeth Braille.
Pressing ESC will close the Math Viewer and return to the document.

See our
MathType Sample Demonstration document
for examples of how JAWS and Fusion can enable  students to
access
math content.

Visit the
Design Science
website for more details about MathType.

Easy Access to Answer or Disconnect From a Skype Call Using the
Desktop
Application Version 8.42 or Higher

In Skype for Desktop 8.42 and later, JAWS or Fusion now provides
keystrokes for answering or disconnecting a call from any
application
as well as moving focus into the Skype main window. Note that these
keystrokes are only available in the Skype for Desktop application.
They will not work in the Skype for Windows 10 universal app from
the
Microsoft store or the Skype for Business app.

To answer an incoming call, press
INSERT+SPACEBAR, y followed by UP ARROW. To
disconnect from a call, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, y followed by DOWN
ARROW.
To move focus directly into the Skype window, press
INSERT+SPACEBAR,
Y
followed by S.

Other Changes
* When performing the monthly updates of JAWS, ZoomText, and
Fusion,
the shortcut keystroke on the Desktop Icon used to launch the
application, will no longer be removed during the update process.
* JAWS now offers localizations for Swedish and Italian when
performing
a full install.
* In the Amazon Kindle app, JAWS and Fusion now supports reading
and
navigating inside tables.
* Resolved an issue where you could not use the keyboard to
interact
with the controls in the Display Options dialog box in the Amazon
Kindle app.
* If Track Changes is turned on in a Word document, you can now use
INSERT+SHIFT+R to list revisions in footnotes, endnotes, and
comments
in addition to the main document. Note that this command only lists
revisions in the currently active pane.
For example, pressing INSERT+SHIFT+R from the Document pane will
list
revisions in the main document while pressing this keystroke from
within a footnote will only list revisions found in footnotes.
* If a word document contained more than 150 revisions, resolved an
issue where the number of revisions was not being reported
correctly
when using INSERT+SHIFT+R.
* The "Document and Web Pages Automatically Read When Loaded"
option
in
Settings Center is now enabled by default in PowerPoint. When you
start
a presentation and move to the next or previous slide, JAWS
automatically begins reading the current slide.
* In Excel, JAWS and Fusion now indicates in both speech and
Braille
if
a cell contains a data type.
* Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+E was not announcing the
default button in a Chrome dialog box.
* Addressed a reported issue where the aria-required attribute was
not
being indicated as expected in Internet Explorer while navigating
with
the Virtual Cursor.
* Addressed reported issues where JAWS and Fusion was not

JAWS now includes the name and type of the current window on the
braille display to make it easier for Braille users to know when a
new
window opens.
* In Microsoft Teams, addressed issues with reading chat messages
as
well as removed extra speech that was heard when attempting to join
a

Power
PDF, and Nuance Power PDF once these products are released by
Nuance.
* Improved how JAWS reads incoming text when connected to remote
sites
using SecureCRT or other SSH software such as Windows TelNet.
* Added support for the latest Remote Desktop Terminal Services

from Microsoft.
* Due to issues with the Weather Research It lookup source, it will

default until a solution is found. In addition, the Amazon Product
Search lookup source has also been removed due to ongoing issues

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1904.60 (April 2019) The following is a
list
of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the March 2019 update and
the
April 2019 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page.
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

Improved Heading Navigation When Using the Numbers Row

For years, users have been able to use 1 through
6 on the numbers row to move to specific heading levels on web
pages.
For instance, 1 for level 1 headings,
2 for level 2 headings, 3 for level 3 headings, and so on. However,
this type of navigation only allowed you to move to headings equal
or
lower than the level you were trying to move by. For example, if
you
attempted to move to a level 3 heading, but the very next heading
was
a
level 2, JAWS would announce:
"No more headings at level 3 in this section,"
and would not move past the level 2 heading.

Beginning with the April 2019 update, you can now move to any given
heading level on a page and if it is under a different higher
precedence heading, the immediately higher precedence heading will
be
read so you know that the new heading belongs to a different
section.
For example, if you attempt to move to a level 3 heading which
causes
you to jump past a level 2 heading, JAWS will announce the level 2
heading prior to announcing the level 3 heading so you know you
have
moved into a new section. You can also choose to have JAWS play a
sound
to indicate when you move into a new section or you can switch back
to
the prior behavior which restricted heading navigation to the
current
section.

To configure how JAWS navigates headings when using the numbers 1
through 6, open Settings Center (INSERT+6 on the numbers row), type
"heading" into the Search edit box, select the "Heading Navigation
Using 1-6" option, and then use the SPACEBAR to choose the setting
you
want. Alternatively, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) from your
browser
and configure the "Heading Navigation" setting.

Support for MathType Content When Reading in Office 365 Word
Documents

You can now use JAWS or Fusion to read and study math problems in
Word
documents created using the MathType software from Design Science.
To
use this feature, you must do the following:

* Make sure you are running the April 2019 release of JAWS or
Fusion
along with Microsoft Word from Office 365.
* Install MathType from
Wiris.com
and activate the software as a trial or actual license.
* In Settings Center, make sure the "Use Accessibility Driver for
Screen Capture" check box is selected.

When you encounter a math equation or formula in a document, JAWS
reads
the problem and then says "Math Content." You can then press
INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by EQUALS to open the JAWS Math Viewer so
you
can study the equation in greater detail.

Once the Math Viewer is opened, you can navigate individual parts
of
an
equation like variables, terms, coefficients, exponents, etc. As
you
navigate to the various components, pressing DOWN ARROW will let
you
drill down into and navigate within that level of the equation
using
LEFT and RIGHT ARROW. Pressing UP ARROW will move you back to the
prior
level.
In addition, if you have a Braille display and JAWS is set to
United
States English or Unified English Braille Grade 1 or Grade 2, the
math
equation or formula will be displayed in Nemeth Braille.
Pressing ESC will close the Math Viewer and return to the document.

See our
MathType Sample Demonstration document
for examples of how JAWS and Fusion can enable students to
access
math content.

Visit the
Design Science
website for more details about MathType.

Easy Access to Answer or Disconnect From a Skype Call Using the
Desktop
Application Version 8.42 or Higher

In Skype for Desktop 8.42 and later, JAWS or Fusion now provides
keystrokes for answering or disconnecting a call from any
application
as well as moving focus into the Skype main window. Note that these
keystrokes are only available in the Skype for Desktop application.
They will not work in the Skype for Windows 10 universal app from
the
Microsoft store or the Skype for Business app.

To answer an incoming call, press
INSERT+SPACEBAR, y followed by UP ARROW. To
disconnect from a call, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, y followed by DOWN
ARROW.
To move focus directly into the Skype window, press
INSERT+SPACEBAR,
Y
followed by S.

Other Changes
* When performing the monthly updates of JAWS, ZoomText, and
Fusion,
the shortcut keystroke on the Desktop Icon used to launch the
application, will no longer be removed during the update process.
* JAWS now offers localizations for Swedish and Italian when
performing
a full install.
* In the Amazon Kindle app, JAWS and Fusion now supports reading
and
navigating inside tables.
* Resolved an issue where you could not use the keyboard to
interact
with the controls in the Display Options dialog box in the Amazon
Kindle app.
* If Track Changes is turned on in a Word document, you can now use
INSERT+SHIFT+R to list revisions in footnotes, endnotes, and
comments
in addition to the main document. Note that this command only lists
revisions in the currently active pane.
For example, pressing INSERT+SHIFT+R from the Document pane will
list
revisions in the main document while pressing this keystroke from
within a footnote will only list revisions found in footnotes.
* If a word document contained more than 150 revisions, resolved an
issue where the number of revisions was not being reported
correctly
when using INSERT+SHIFT+R.
* The "Document and Web Pages Automatically Read When Loaded"
option
in
Settings Center is now enabled by default in PowerPoint. When you
start
a presentation and move to the next or previous slide, JAWS
automatically begins reading the current slide.
* In Excel, JAWS and Fusion now indicates in both speech and
Braille
if
a cell contains a data type.
* Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+E was not announcing the
default button in a Chrome dialog box.
* Addressed a reported issue where the aria-required attribute was
not
being indicated as expected in Internet Explorer while navigating
with
the Virtual Cursor.
* Addressed reported issues where JAWS and Fusion was not
consistently
reading elements that use the aria-describedby" or title attributes
while tabbing through a page.
* If you are inside a table in a Google Docs document and you press
INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q to activate the Quick Nav mode, you can now use
the
ARROW keys to move to each cell. You can also use CTRL+UP/DOWN
ARROW
to
move to the top or bottom of the current column, CTRL+LEFT/RIGHT
ARROW
to move to the beginning or end of the current row, and
CTRL+HOME/END
to move to the beginning or end of the table.
* For users of the Focus Blue Braille Display, you can now press a
Selector button along with the Left or Right NAV Mode button to
toggle
speech on or off for the corresponding NAV Rocker. When enabled,
JAWS
will speak as you scroll by line, sentence, or paragraph. This
setting
is off by default for both NAV Rockers.
* Added additional information to installer error messages such as
when
you include an invalid language code when using the /language
command
line argument.
* You can now press INSERT+F8 in the Skype for Desktop application
to
display a list of JAWS keystrokes specific to Skype. You can then
select the action you want to perform and press ENTER.
* The "Prompt to Confirm when Exiting JAWS"
option has been added to the Run JAWS Settings page of the Startup
Wizard.
* When using Braille in a WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation)
app,
JAWS now includes the name and type of the current window on the
braille display to make it easier for Braille users to know when a
new
window opens.
* In Microsoft Teams, addressed issues with reading chat messages
as
well as removed extra speech that was heard when attempting to join
a
meeting.
* Added necessary changes to JAWS to support Gaaiho Doc, Nuance
Power
PDF, and Nuance Power PDF once these products are released by
Nuance.
* Improved how JAWS reads incoming text when connected to remote
sites
using SecureCRT or other SSH software such as Windows TelNet.
* Added support for the latest Remote Desktop Terminal Services
client
from Microsoft.
* Due to issues with the Weather Research It lookup source, it will
no
longer appear in the Research It dialog box (INSERT+SPACEBAR, R) by
default until a solution is found. In addition, the Amazon Product
Search lookup source has also been removed due to ongoing issues
which

Hi John,

I'm using a Dell Inspiron Laptop, I don't know if the manufacturer might make a difference.

Hi John:

I will appreciate any efforts you and your brother make to that effect, although I am thrilled about the other Skype shortcuts, so long awaited when we lost the use of Skype 7 but finally enabled again, it would be nice to have a reminder of such elusive shortcuts as we must use for Skype nowadays.

I use Skype to record interviews almost daily (with Virtual Recorder, not Skype recording) and I am an old-time JAWS user, so old that I began with JAWS for DOS in 1989, when I used to call Henter-Joyce and Ted Henter himself would help me; now getting on in years, I frown upon the progression of changes that break-up my routines, my podcasts, my internet radio, forcing me to constantly learn or fall by the wayside.

Humberto

HI,
It works for me if you have the current JAWS April update and the
current update for Skype desk top which is I believe 8.4.

Hi all,

I was very happy to learn that finally the functionality of
Skype Desktop will approach that to which we were all
accustomed; after updating JAWS, I tried the Insert-Spacebar Y
S and it does take me
to
the Skype windows from anywhere; I still have not tried
answering
or
hanging up calls,, but have encountered difficulty with the
following:

"* You can now press INSERT+F8 in the Skype for Desktop
application
to
display a list of JAWS keystrokes specific to Skype. You can
then select the action you want to perform and press ENTER."

When I press Insert-F8 JAWS says F8 and nothing happens, has
anyone been successful with this new command?

Regards,

Humberto

Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1904.60 (April 2019) The following is
a
list
of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the March 2019 update
and
the
April 2019 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page.
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

Improved Heading Navigation When Using the Numbers Row

For years, users have been able to use 1 through
6 on the numbers row to move to specific heading levels on web
pages.
For instance, 1 for level 1 headings,
2 for level 2 headings, 3 for level 3 headings, and so on.
However, this type of navigation only allowed you to move to
headings equal
or
lower than the level you were trying to move by. For example,
if
you
attempted to move to a level 3 heading, but the very next
heading
was
a
level 2, JAWS would announce:
"No more headings at level 3 in this section,"
and would not move past the level 2 heading.

Beginning with the April 2019 update, you can now move to any
given heading level on a page and if it is under a different
higher precedence heading, the immediately higher precedence
heading will
be
read so you know that the new heading belongs to a different
section.
For example, if you attempt to move to a level 3 heading which
causes
you to jump past a level 2 heading, JAWS will announce the
level 2 heading prior to announcing the level 3 heading so you
know you
have
moved into a new section. You can also choose to have JAWS play
a
sound
to indicate when you move into a new section or you can switch
back
to
the prior behavior which restricted heading navigation to the
current
section.

To configure how JAWS navigates headings when using the numbers
1 through 6, open Settings Center (INSERT+6 on the numbers
row), type "heading" into the Search edit box, select the
"Heading Navigation Using 1-6" option, and then use the
SPACEBAR to choose the setting
you
want. Alternatively, open Quick Settings (INSERT+V) from your
browser
and configure the "Heading Navigation" setting.

Support for MathType Content When Reading in Office 365 Word
Documents

You can now use JAWS or Fusion to read and study math problems
in
Word
documents created using the MathType software from Design Science.
To
use this feature, you must do the following:

* Make sure you are running the April 2019 release of JAWS or
Fusion
along with Microsoft Word from Office 365.
* Install MathType from
Wiris.com
and activate the software as a trial or actual license.
* In Settings Center, make sure the "Use Accessibility Driver
for Screen Capture" check box is selected.

When you encounter a math equation or formula in a document,
JAWS
reads
the problem and then says "Math Content." You can then press
INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by EQUALS to open the JAWS Math Viewer
INSERT+so
you
can study the equation in greater detail.

Once the Math Viewer is opened, you can navigate individual
parts
of
an
equation like variables, terms, coefficients, exponents, etc.
As
you
navigate to the various components, pressing DOWN ARROW will
let
you
drill down into and navigate within that level of the equation
using
LEFT and RIGHT ARROW. Pressing UP ARROW will move you back to
the
prior
level.
In addition, if you have a Braille display and JAWS is set to
United
States English or Unified English Braille Grade 1 or Grade 2,
the
math
equation or formula will be displayed in Nemeth Braille.
Pressing ESC will close the Math Viewer and return to the document.

See our
MathType Sample Demonstration document
for examples of how JAWS and Fusion can enable students to
access
math content.

Visit the
Design Science
website for more details about MathType.

Easy Access to Answer or Disconnect From a Skype Call Using the
Desktop
Application Version 8.42 or Higher

In Skype for Desktop 8.42 and later, JAWS or Fusion now
provides keystrokes for answering or disconnecting a call from
any
application
as well as moving focus into the Skype main window. Note that
these keystrokes are only available in the Skype for Desktop application.
They will not work in the Skype for Windows 10 universal app
from
the
Microsoft store or the Skype for Business app.

To answer an incoming call, press
INSERT+SPACEBAR, y followed by UP ARROW. To
disconnect from a call, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, y followed by
DOWN
ARROW.
To move focus directly into the Skype window, press
INSERT+SPACEBAR,
Y
followed by S.

Other Changes
* When performing the monthly updates of JAWS, ZoomText, and
Fusion,
the shortcut keystroke on the Desktop Icon used to launch the
application, will no longer be removed during the update process.
* JAWS now offers localizations for Swedish and Italian when
performing
a full install.
* In the Amazon Kindle app, JAWS and Fusion now supports
reading
and
navigating inside tables.
* Resolved an issue where you could not use the keyboard to
interact
with the controls in the Display Options dialog box in the
Amazon Kindle app.
* If Track Changes is turned on in a Word document, you can now
use
INSERT+SHIFT+R to list revisions in footnotes, endnotes, and
comments
in addition to the main document. Note that this command only
lists revisions in the currently active pane.
For example, pressing INSERT+SHIFT+R from the Document pane
will
list
revisions in the main document while pressing this keystroke
from within a footnote will only list revisions found in footnotes.
* If a word document contained more than 150 revisions,
resolved an issue where the number of revisions was not being
reported
correctly
when using INSERT+SHIFT+R.
* The "Document and Web Pages Automatically Read When Loaded"
option
in
Settings Center is now enabled by default in PowerPoint. When
you
start
a presentation and move to the next or previous slide, JAWS
automatically begins reading the current slide.
* In Excel, JAWS and Fusion now indicates in both speech and
Braille
if
a cell contains a data type.
* Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+E was not announcing
the default button in a Chrome dialog box.
* Addressed a reported issue where the aria-required attribute
was
not
being indicated as expected in Internet Explorer while
navigating
with
the Virtual Cursor.
* Addressed reported issues where JAWS and Fusion was not
consistently
reading elements that use the aria-describedby" or title
attributes while tabbing through a page.
* If you are inside a table in a Google Docs document and you
press
INSERT+SPACEBAR, Q to activate the Quick Nav mode, you can now
INSERT+use
the
ARROW keys to move to each cell. You can also use CTRL+UP/DOWN
ARROW
to
move to the top or bottom of the current column,
CTRL+LEFT/RIGHT
ARROW
to move to the beginning or end of the current row, and
CTRL+HOME/END
to move to the beginning or end of the table.
* For users of the Focus Blue Braille Display, you can now
press a Selector button along with the Left or Right NAV Mode
button to
toggle
speech on or off for the corresponding NAV Rocker. When
enabled,
JAWS
will speak as you scroll by line, sentence, or paragraph. This
setting
is off by default for both NAV Rockers.
* Added additional information to installer error messages such
as
when
you include an invalid language code when using the /language
command
line argument.
* You can now press INSERT+F8 in the Skype for Desktop
application
to
display a list of JAWS keystrokes specific to Skype. You can
then select the action you want to perform and press ENTER.
* The "Prompt to Confirm when Exiting JAWS"
option has been added to the Run JAWS Settings page of the
Startup
Wizard.
* When using Braille in a WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation)
app,
JAWS now includes the name and type of the current window on
the braille display to make it easier for Braille users to know
when a
new
window opens.
* In Microsoft Teams, addressed issues with reading chat
messages
as
well as removed extra speech that was heard when attempting to
join
a
meeting.
* Added necessary changes to JAWS to support Gaaiho Doc, Nuance
Power
PDF, and Nuance Power PDF once these products are released by
Nuance.
* Improved how JAWS reads incoming text when connected to
remote
sites
using SecureCRT or other SSH software such as Windows TelNet.
* Added support for the latest Remote Desktop Terminal Services
client
from Microsoft.
* Due to issues with the Weather Research It lookup source, it
will
no
longer appear in the Research It dialog box (INSERT+SPACEBAR,
R) by default until a solution is found. In addition, the
Amazon Product Search lookup source has also been removed due
to ongoing issues
which
we are continuing to investigate.


Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go Dodgers!
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is
trying
to
please everybody.
