Re: Paste Special in Word 2016

IN word, the hotkey is control+alt+v.
The following is from the Office support page after searching for "past special in word 2016."
Using Paste Special

Like pictures and other objects, text in a presentation has its own formatting - such as typeface, color, and font size. When you copy text that has different
formatting into an Office program, the program, such as PowerPoint or Word, automatically reformats that text to match the text of the destination. However,
you can use Paste Special to maintain the original formatting or paste it as a link or a picture, for example.

list of 3 items
1. Cut or copy the slide, picture, text, or object that you want to paste.

2. Click in your Office file at the place you wish to insert that item.

3. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow under Paste, click Paste Special, and then choose one of the options below.

Paste Special menu

Tip: If you'd prefer to use the keyboard you can press CTRL+ALT+V to invoke Paste Special.

Hi: I'm using word 2016 and Jaws 2018. Recently, I noticed that there
doesn't appear to be a paste special in word any more. I hit
alt+h and down arrow to paste, then I use alt+downarrow and there
are options like kept text only, but not paste special.
Any suggestions?
