Re: Word 2016 and JAWS 18

Thanks very much Jerry,
Though on my Windows 10 with Office 365 and Word 2016, one press of f6 got me to the status line. Shift f10 brought up the list but all I had to do was hit the space bar on each item I wanted to check or uncheck.

Works great now.

Let's be a little more precice.

When in the body of the Word document, hit F6 twice to get to the status
line. Hit Shift and F10 to get to the list of choices that you can make
appear or disappear on the status line. Use up and down arrow to find the
one you want to and hit Enter to select or de-select it. Once done hit tab
to say OK.

I hope this helps

Take care,

Gerry Ellis

f6 should take you to the status bar so you can add the things you want. It
maybe requires the applications menu to apply the settings.

Jaws gives me page number and the word count and some other information.

At work, I have Jaws 18 and Word 2013 and insert+PageDown tells me the
status bar info like page number, line number, etc.
At home using Word 2016, Jaws 18 Home Use, insert+PageDown gives me the
word count.
Where on Earth would I go to make it tell me the page number at least?
I just went through the Word Verbosity settings with insert+v and
didn't find anything useful.

Thanks for any help,
