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
