Re: detecting formatting in word 2013 especially paragraphs

Kimber Gardner


That's odd. I get nothing when I press control-shift-8 either in word
2010 or 2013 except for the announcement of the keys I've pressed.

In Word 2013, does the control-shift-8 (on the number row) still function as
a toggle for this symbol? It might be simpler. (I still work with 2010.)

Also, the JAWS key-v quick setting dialog might help. Type I into the search
field and arrow down through the results.

Hi Jo,

I think what you want is to display paragraph marks so jaws will
indicate when you reach the end of a paragraph. To do this,

Go to options under the file tab by pressing alt F T.
You will find yourself in a list of categories. Arrow down once to
display, then tab over and explore your options for which marks to
display. Make sure to check the box for paragraph marks. Tab to ok and
press enter.

Now when you read your document with the up and down arrows (line by
line, you will hear jaws say "paragraph mark" when you reach the end
of a paragraph.

I hope this helps.
