Re: How do I get to the Status Bar in MS Word 2016 with JAWS 2019?

Hi Sieghard!

 

Thanks for your below.  Well, I discovered that I had the “auto hide the ribbon” option checked.  That also hid the status bar.  Now F6 works as expected.  BTW, I like your shortcut control+shift+g command.  It’s great!

 

Thanks,

Richard M.

Hi Richard,

 

And since in Windows and Office there are always numerous ways to skin a cat, you can always just use the keyboard shortcut for Wordcount/statistics, Control+Shift+G.

Richard,

F6 works for me too, but Word Count may not show up if it wasn’t checked after getting to the Status Bar settings with F6 and then doing shift+f10 to bring up the context menu and checking things like Word count, column, (which I find helpful as it tells you how far across the line you are, etc.

 

If you cannot get there with f6, alt+r then w will give you the word count, or it should anyway.

F6 works for me in current Microsoft Word for Office 365 with JAWS 2019. Alternatively, you can use Insert+Numpad-3 to read the status line.

Hi!

 

I seem to remember that pressing F6 would cycle me around the ribbon, document pane, status bar and so on.  Now, when I press F6 all I hear is “document pane.”  I want to get to the status bar so I can check on some statistics (e.g., number of words) in my document.  How do I get there?

 

Thanks,

Richard
