Hi Laura,


You can try this:


ell checker is working or not.

#Using Edit Registry Option

For resolving this issue you need to edit the Windows registry key. If you are comfortable with editing the registry files then make use of a good registry tool or you can perform the following option.

Firstly close all the applications.

Then Go to Start-> Run-> regedit.

Then you need to search for the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0\Override and delete it.

Then you need to restart your computer.

Then check if the problem is fixed. HTH

Subject: Spell checker problems with Microsoft Word 2016




Is anybody having problems with spell checking using Microsoft Word 2016.  I have Jaws 2022 and Windows 10.


When I try to spell check, Jaws will not read anything past the first wordd ...... Complete silence.  This problem started approximately 1 ½  months ago.  I have spent many hours on the phone with Freedom Scientific and Microsoft disability with no resolution of this problem.  Microsoft disability has placed an escalation and will be calling me Wednesday to further investigate this issue.


Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
