Re: known issues with Excel 2016 freezes with JAWS?

  I use Excel 2016, office 365 version, and while it has some minor quirks , works well.  When they throw updates in from Office or JAWS this can bring unexpected issues.  I would compare your 2016 Excel settings with your old ones.  Just guessing here, but there may be an Excel extension or setting under “View” that needs changed and is giving JAWS grief.  The crashing is what makes me go this direction.

Subject: known issues with Excel 2016 freezes with JAWS?



Running Excel 2016 with JAWS 2018 build 1803.  I've tried to open many files today Excel for work and been getting everything from really sluggish movement around the file to JAWS freezing when in Excel.   Next week I think my laptop will get reimaged to resolve an unrelated issue and I hope to get the latest release of JAWS installed, but just wanting to know of any known issue in Excel 2016.  This issue is really problematic with getting my work done.  These are all files that I successfully opened when in Office 2010 and running Window Eyes, but today is my first day opening them on my new system.
