Re: JAWS and MS Word 2016

Try pressing F6 and you should hear JAWS say "edit" or something similar, from that point you should be able to use your reading keys.

You may have to press F6 multiple times depending where you are on the screen.

Hope this helps.

I have just gotten a new PC with MS Office 2016. I have already set up
Word how I want it, including modfiying the trust center so that files

that was created on my old laptop, Word opens but Jaws cannot seem to
move around the screen. If I press alt-f4 the document actually seems
to appear properly, but only for a couple of seconds.

Obviously this is a pretty significant problems as I do most of my
work with Word documents. Does anyone know what's going on? I am using
JAWS 17; is there a setting I need to change?
