Re: Comment pane in MS-Word 2016 and JAWS 18

Hello Jasen,

Using the same configuration, for me, Jaws is intermittently not responding
to the reading commands; not going down a line, not going to the next word,
and most often, not reading character by character. It is only intermittent,
only in Word.

I'm running the latest Jaws 18.0.2118 and Microsoft Word 2016 with the
November update applied, under Windows 10.

If I insert a comment (Alt+R, C), the braille display continues to show the
main text of the document, even after I type text into the comment pane. If
I then use arrow keys to navigate, neither speech nor braille presents the
text of the comment.

Is anyone else on the list seeing this?
