Hello Edward. This is really cool. I didn’t know about this update in JAWS.
Thanks so much for sharing this with the list.
When was this feature added?
Thanks so much.

Whether or not you are working with a .doc or .docx file shouldn't affect how track changes work.
To toggle track changes on and off while typing, press shift+control+e.
Probably the most efficient way to review changes in a document is to press windows key+semi-colon which brings up a JAWS dialog of things you can review such as comments and footnotes. From the resultant list, choose "revisions" and press enter.
The changes should now appear in the virtual viewer, with a numbered link above each. Activating this link will take you to the relevant part of the text in which the change appears.
I hope this is a useful start.
