Thank you all for posting. I’m grateful for the 2018 update, and I plan to wait a while before upgrading to JAWS 2019. Maybe the company will have the bugs worked out by then. I depend on MS Word and don’t want to risk dealing with bugs when I have a version that works well for me. I never upgrade just to have the latest—waiting until some bugs are fixed.

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.

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.
