I turned off the “Start Screen” and “Back Stage View” as mentioned in Richard’s post.  Also, I disabled the “Reading” pane in Word.  I found that turning off the “Preview pane in Outlook was also helpful and disabling “groups” in the People section improved JAWS.  Sometimes you just have to play with the settings  to see what will and will not work.  Trouble is that both JAWS and Office 2016 (Office 365) do numerous updates and what now works good may not with next update but the above settings usually remain unchanged with updates.  There has been one time however when setting needed fixed after a Office update. 

Dan  Ps I do not use Office calendar but there are JAWS glitches if certain settings are not changed.

So I haven't touched Office since 2003, and am going to need to change that. What I'm wondering is if I'll have problems using latest JAWS version 18 with the current Office version available as a subscription. Any settings I should change to avoid giving me a headache?
