Re: Spell check in Word 2016

Thanks, but when I do insert F7 it says nothing.
When I push F6 and tab through all the focused, one days document pane. Do you have other panes showing?

When in the spellchecker, insert/F7 should tell you the miss spelled word.

Using Win 10 pro version 1803, and latest version of Jaws 2019 I do
not get full speech when doing a spell/grammar check in Word 2016.
When I hit F7 to do the spell check in an open Word document, I'm
given an option to change language and as I tab possible suggested
correctly spelled words. The problem is Jaws is not reading me the
word that is spelled wrong so I do not know what I'm replacing or if
I want to replace. Anyone found a work around for this?
This does not happen in outlook 2016, spell check works the way it is
supposed to.
