Hi you are correct, I was directing my post at you, sorry I should have been
With regards to your post, why not just delete everything from the message
body, put your points in and send it if you didn't want to imbed your
comments in the message at particular points?
You are correct, I probably shouldn't have used the word top post, however I
just found your message hard to read because of all the junk that was still
in it such as all the lines saying original message and other stuff, as well
as a lot of previous points that you didn't seem to be responding to.
I spent several minutes trying to find your points but couldn't find them so
that's why I wrote.

Regarding your comment about being able to get jaws to read you the page as
it is displayed on the screen, is that by using the option to switch the
virtual cursor off? or is there some other setting I am not aware of?
as I would like to give navigating the manual and daily builds pages a go
with this feature.
