Re: JAWS 2019 and Microsoft Word not working properly together

I too have found a few bugs with Word, Excel, and Outlook 2016 with JAWS 2019.  However, I think it is *really* important for us all to first see if there is a solution to the problem to be found on this list, and failing that then to send the issue into JAWS for a spot on the bug fix cue.  I have sent-in about three myself.  We all want JAWS to be functional and stable.  If we do not take the time to help fix things, they won’t be.

Hello all,

     Just now, I found that JAWS 2019 and Microsoft Word won’t work together nicely in some aspects. When I’m reading a document, of my own making, JAWS misses some words at times and repeats others—almost as if it’s wrapping up a few phrases/words. I have the document maximized when I’m reading with “say all.” Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening? It doesn’t happen with JAWS 2018 as I’ve checked.

Thank you,

Ashleigh Piccinino
