Wow, that’s a major bug for a frequently used feature of Word.

Hi all,

 

I’ve found another place where JAWS crashes hard in Word.  Remember the mailing labels thing?  Here’s another one.

 

In Word, press Control+H to get into Find And Replace, then tab to the More button and hit space bar on it.  Now tab around a few times and JAWS will say Generic MSAA Container and crash hard again.

 

Thank goodnesss for NVDA.

 

Let’s hope it gets fixed in the next update.

 

All the best

 

Steve
