David, Using Word 2003 and those versions of JFW, I'm afraid I don't believe that there is a way of accepting all changes at once - though I would be pleased to be corrected by others who know differently. As you probably know, it's possible to accept or reject individual changes using the context menu when the cursor is on the relevant change. This proves laborious for a long document with lots of changes though. It's also possible to view the document with all changes hidden by switching to "final" view. You can do this on the toolbar if the track changes toolbar is checked in the View menu. Unfortunately, this does not remove or "accept" all the changes in the document, it only hides them from immediate view by presenting the document in the form it would look if they were accepted (they are still present in the background). If your document is devoid of complex formatting, you could switch to Final view, then copy the text, and then paste it as unformatted text into a new document. This would give you a clean version with all the changes gone. Unfortunately, you will loose all formatting using this method. If this is a longer term issue, Blazie have scripted JAWS at least as far on as version 7 (and possibly later versions for other clients) to give you native keystrokes to accept and reject single changes, all changes, or to move forwards/backwards through changes, as well as some other functions. Scripting work of this type might be something ATW would fund, if that's relevant to you. Sorry I can't help more, but perhaps others out there have other ideas.

I am using Jaws 14 but have version 11 and 13 if that would help. Apparently this is a button which sighted people can see but I cannot find it with Jaws.
