Even though the problem occurred three times earlier today, I have yet to replicate it here this evening.
However, I’m sure it will be a matter of time until the problem recurs.
I’ll keep the Windows, Insert, F4 command in mind.

How about if you do the following command, then try to restart JAWS:
INSERT plus WINDOWS KEY plus F4, then try to restart JAWS.

It seems that I have narrowed the Jaws crashing issue on my current Windows 7 computer down to the following sequence of events.
Jaws seems to crash when I exit Microsoft Word while Outlook is also open. Once this happens, Jaws will stop speaking, and I can’t re-activate Jaws either via the usual Alt Control J shortcut, or the Windows R command.
The only way I can re-start Jaws is to do a hard shut-down of the computer.
My sighted wife says Jaws looks like it is still up on the screen, but she can’t do anything to re-activate it either, short of manually shutting down the computer.
Does anyone have a sequence of steps to get out of this issue?
Does anyone know if FS is aware of the problem??
I did not have this problem prior to updateing to Jaws 18.
To clarify, I’m using Office 365 here, with Word 2016 and Outlook 2016.
