Re: Latest JAWS & excel 2016

I have been experiencing this same problem for a while. I am completely frustrated. I called VFO and they had no suggestions other than call MicroSoft accessibility desk. I have not done that but don't see what they could do. Since moving to Windows 10 I have been extremely frustrated with JAWS in several applications. Most of them are things I can work around some but Excel is the worse with it stopping speaking or taking 20 to 30 seconds or more to repeat what I typed. It also stops speaking when I am moving around a spreadsheet to check figures and mark things off.
I have been working with JAWS since sometime in the mid-90s. I have never been so frustrated as I am now. Hoping to hear that someone has unlocked the secret to at least Excel. Also frustrated with no speech during spell check.

Yes, exactly like that here. This is getting very annoying. I am flying back to NY today but will call VFO tomorrow or when time permits. I am sure they are well aware of this issue as it has been widely reported. Others? Has anyone had a formal response from VFO?
I’m experiencing this issue with jaws 17, 18 and 2018 with excel 2013. If I alt plus tap, jaws is responsive. It’s to the point where I have to end the the test via the task manager for excel and reopen excel to continue working again. Reinstalling jaws does not help, I need a solution as well!
