I am not having that problem with my JAWS 11 installation. You may want
to try using the Styles hot-key which is CTRL+ALT++SHIFT+S to get into
the styles window. That may help.

I'll keep playing with Word to see if I can replicate your issue, but it
seems very strange to me.

Good Luck,

Hey all,

Is it just me, or is there an issue with JAWS 11 and the Styles window
in Word 2007? On the machines I have JAWS 11 installed on, when I press
ALT+O then S to go into the Styles window, focus moves to the window
then immediately moves back to the document. I cannot select any of the
styles from the keyboard. On machines that I'm still running JAWS 10
on, the keyboard access works perfectly. Any ideas?
