I found the exact same results. No difference with either option.

Thanks for checking.

I've tried this with JAWS 17 and JAWS 18 and I can't get it announced either. There is an option which would appear to control this - AutoCorrect Detection in Quick Settings - but it makes no difference whether I have this on or off, I hear nothing.

I have a quick question, Should JAWS be telling you that a misspelled word has been corrected?

I can't seem to get it to do this.

For example, if I type the instead of the and Word autocorrected it, should JAWS advise me of this?

Try using alt + shift + l. It gives you a list of the misspelled words. Just skip the ones that are OK. To fix a misspelling, one has to tab to OK and then press the applications key to get a list of fixes. Usually F-7 is faster, but not with JAWS screwed-up, as it is.
Also, even if JAWS worked like it did with Word 2010, Alt + shift + l is sometimes faster if your document is loaded with lots of proper names, as in case citations.

I'm also having a bit of trouble with Word 2016 spellcheck and Jaws.

Sometimes Jaws doesn't say anything when I press f7. Sometimes Jaws will say the mispelled word with no other prompting. Then, if I press tab to move through the dialog, it just inserts a tab even when Jaws said a mispelled word. I must have changed some setting from the defaults to mess up Jaws.

BTW: We don't use the alt key now.

Ignore Button
To activate press spacebar.
Jaws says "Press the accelerator key only, without the ALT key in Office
2013 or later", if you try.

I have to do a lot of tabbing in this version of spellchec because the accellerator key moves focus to that control and there is no hotkey to get back to the list of words.

When you press F7,, it should announce the first misspelled word. Then you tab to choices and press Alt-C for your preference or Alt-I if you do not make a choice from the words offered to you. Then, when Spell Check is complete, just press Spacebar or Escape. You will be at the top of your document at that point.

Bye for now,

Hello Group,

When doing spell check on Word 2016 I know you press F7 and then it brings up spell check, but I don’t know how to navigate the spell check after that. Any suggestions? Just learning all this. Thanks for any help you may have.
