Re: Having challenge with Character count in microsoft office

Hi Adekoya ,

I tried it just for fun, although I seldom need to know the character count. Well, I'm running JAWS 18 and Windows 7. It didn't work for me either. In fact, with Windows 7, and Word 2016, I got something screwy when I tried the first suggestion of control plus shift plus l.
Maybe you are all talking about Windows 10, which I hope I never have to learn. (LOL)

I only put my 2 cents in to validate your dilemma.

Hi Carolyn and Mario,

I still encounter this same challenge even after pressing alt r and w.
I will try to install later version of Jaws 18 to see if I will still
encounter same experience.

Thank.

You can press Control+Shift+L, which will give you word, but also character
count.

Subject: Having challenge with Character count in microsoft office

Dear Tech enthusiast,
I am currently having challenge to count characters in Microsoft office
2016. before in office 2007, I use control+shift+G but in word 2016, if I
press it, the jaws goes silent and most time, it hang. I use window 8.1 but
I try it as well on my window 7 laptop, same happen. Using f6 to move to the
status bar or insert page down only tell me the number of words not
characters.
Any help. Is it jaws that's hanging? or any other key stroke to do this.

Best.
