You could also add the email shortcut to the word or, excel quick access toolbar.

I agree about the PDF. In fact, as I have stated here before, the PDF capability of the last 4 releases, coupled with JAWS added OCR capability, make a dynamite combination for either professional or personal use.
I don’t use Word a lot, but assume this works equally in Excel which I use a lot more. Just to add to the Alt+f then H, E and A instruction, in case you forget the shortcut:
Alt+f is of course for the file menu
The “H” is for the “Share” item which you can also down arrow to once you press Alt+f
If you then right arrow on “Share” you get the following:
Share with People
Email – that is the “E” letter in the shortcut combination
Post to blog
Once you are on “email” and right arrow, you have again several options:
Send as attachment – that is the “A” letter of the shortcut combination
Sent as PDF – also very useful and it converts your Word document instantly to a PDF preserving all formatting and then it opens an email with the PDF attached.
the shortcut letter for this is “F”, so the entire shortcut combination is Alt+F followed by H, E and F
Sent as XPS – again formatting is preserved, but as far as I am concerned PDF is much easier for people than XPS
Sent as Internet Fax – the explanation Jaws reads is “No fax machine needed, you’ll need a fax service provider”.
It worked. I think I’ll keep that around for a while, until it feels natural.
When in the document do the following keystrokes. Alt/f, then, h, e, a, and you should be in the to field of your email message with the document as an attachment.
I go to file, down to share, down to e-mail… There may be a better way and I would like to know what it is.
All administrators, self-appointed and otherwise, I apologize in advance, but you’re the only group that came to mind. All 2016 users, what happened to save and send? Is it still possible to e-mail from inside a saved document? I send a lot of reports that way.
