It is a verbosity setting. As long as images have Alt Text, turning on the
graphics: labeled and I also turn on the identification of objects. Note
that depending on the images position on "the line" you may hear "slash"
until you are right on the image/cursor is in a specific location.

You'll need to set the verbosity for both Word 2003 and 2007.

Let me know if you need any more help. I'm writing the "Word 2007 from the
Keyboard book and have been using Office 2007 since its private beta days. I
am also a JAWS user.

Cheers, Karen

Has anyone been able to configure JAWS 9 to read an image's text description
in MS Word?

If so, could you please forward the process you used? I know I have done it
in the past, but for some reason I am completely unable to get the settings
correct to make this happen. I am using JAWS 9 and Office 2003 and Office

Take care,
