Hey all Smile

I'm building a screen reader as a college project with the key feature of pointing at a word on IE with the mouse cursor and obtaining the word under the cursor's position. I found how to obtain a group of words using MS's Active Accessibillty features, BUT in order to obtain that single word my mouse courser is pointing at, I need the text properties (length width...) of that group of words which I"m pointing at. Can I somehow get these properties from IE 7 ( or any older version ). Or you could suggest another way of obtaining the word under the cursor on IE .

Thanks in advance.
