Also, adding to Joseph Lee's comment, it is important to
understand the following points:
in JAWS, when you use numpad 4 and 6, you are doing exactly the
same thing as when you use the left and right arrow keys on the
main keyboard. When you are in the pc cursor, JAWS doesn't do

review text, like with Jaws. Is this expected functionality or is
something I've forgotten to tell my friend to help him better?
open a word document and attempt to read word for word using
and 6, I get the same result he does. I don't see any of the text
document, but, the name of the document and menu options.
