the current version of JAWS is JAWS 2018 not JAWS 18, which is the
previous version. Also, I would buy the Office 2016 CD not the
subscription. It is cheaper in the long run and technology companies
are deplatforming peple because of what is in their documents or
e-mails. I do not want to lose access to MS Word documents because
some coder at Microsoft decided fit a vague idea in the company's
terms of service. This is what happend with Google docs last year when
thousands of peple were denied access to the information they created.

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.

The to work good together, may be a bit of a learning curve and a few
tweaks here and there, our use it every day and found that it worked good
right out of the box

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?
