Re: Double spacing with word 2007 through 2016

Carol Smith

Hi again,

I am not good enough with Jaws yet to say which things it does or does not speak.  But, in this case, the control plus 1, control plus 2 and control plus 5 are all windows commands while in Word.  Unless Jaws has some assigned key for control plus 2, it should work.  Also, in case I did not mention this, the numbers are the ones on the number row, not the keypad.  Does Jaws have a way to read how things are formatted in Word?  This would be the best way to find out if the change took effect. 

Take care,

Hi Carol, When trying to use  -control plus 2, I notice Jaws doesn’t say anything in regards to if it’s double spaced or not. Is this normal?

Double spacing is control-2, single is control-1 and 1.5 spacing is control-5.  I put the others there in case you might need them some time.

Hi all, What is the keystroke to doublespace your document within word for 2007? Will the same keystrokes apply to 2010, 2013, and 2016 as well?

Thanks for any help.
