I don’t understand something here. For what reason FS is going to invest time and money developing a function like insert + control + F , if the native word function Control + F works better?

Subject: Re: Jaws not finding content in word 2016
as far as I know, JAWS search (Insert+CTRL+F) in Word or all program windows except the web-like ones (browser, PDF) only searches for strings on the current screen. Therefore, CTRL+F works better there because by default, this function searches for the string in the entire document.
The following problem is happening on 3 different computers running Jaws 18 last release on windows 10, and word 2016 office 365.
When I have a word document opened, and I press insert + control + F to find a string. When I press enter to start the find function, 90% of the times jaws says, string not found.
However I know that that string is there so I try to use the word find function, pressing control + F, then I press enter.
Yes, using the find function on word, I am finding strings that jaws is not able to find.
What is happening here? Why the find function in jaws is not working consistently?
Thanks for all,
