I understand your frustration very well, as I am experiencing the same problems. Unfortunately for us, this is a known issue with Office. The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk is aware of the problem, and they told me that they notified FreedomScientific. So I’m afraid we have to wait for JAWS and/or office updates that will restore full accessibility to the comment pane.
In the meantime, consider trying Narrator and/or NVDA. I myself have tried both, and both interact with the comment pane better than JAWS. However, even these screen readers run into trouble; they interact with some comments fine, but not at all with others. I’m sorry I cannot help more.
