moderated Re: spell checking options in Word and Outlook



I too loved the way WE let you find the errors in a document with the next and prior key strokes. The closest it gets in Jaws is the

Alt and F7 key. That will jump you to the spelling error where the context menu opens with the spelling choices accessible with the arrow keys. It only works in one direction i.e. forward. If you need to check the beginning you have to start at the beginning.

If you need context of the error press escape and your focus is at the misspelling

I hope that helps

Subject: spell checking options in Word and Outlook


I have become very attached to the way that Window Eyes lets me move from spelling error to spelling error within the Word document or email with a keystroke.  I much prefer this to the spelling checking dialog feature in both programs, as it let’s me more quickly review the context and determine what correction is needed.  Is there a similar feature with JAWS?  I really fear I will lose efficiency and effectiveness having to rely solely on the spell check dialog box.
