Hi Anna,

I am not sure why JAWS is reading “misspelled” before the words that are spelled incorrectly.  I never had that problem when I used JAWS.  You might want to check your verbosity settings (insert V).  As for why it would do it in Firefox and not IE, I have no idea.  I’m not sure you can select non-consecutive lines using JAWS.  I have never actually come across any way to do it, but I will check for you.  With your third question, I can definitely help.  I took Spanish in middle school an high school and found it very easy.  You can put JAWS in Spanish, as well as several other languages.  I can look up how to change languages on the Braille Sence, but I’m sure there is a way to do it.  You will need to learn the braille symbols used for letters with accent marks.  If you like, I can e-mail them to you off-list, as well as detailed instructions on how to put JAWS, your iPhone and your Braille Scense in Spanish.  Sorry I couldn’t help much with your other questions, but I hope my Spanish advice helped.
