Brian Hartgen's Leasey Advanced program does add some very nice functionality to Word which may make performing some of these tasks easier.

www.LeaseyCentral.com is the Web site for more info. You can download a limited time demo to test it out.

I don't like it either, but better than nothing. If you press enter on the word JAWS finds, I think it takes you to it.  I still use f7, then escape to find the word, then try to figure it from there.  Stinkin' annoying!

Ann,

Thanks, did not know about this. Better than nothing but it does not take
you to where you are in the document so you can ctrl arrow around to see the
context. It also does not spell the misspelled work out and then give
choices. Workable, yes, preferred to the normal behavior with F7, no.
Thanks for sharing

In her Word 2016 text book, KathyAnn Murtha recommends either using the JAWS
command alt+shift+l to locate misspelled words, or insert+z to invoke Word's
quick keys, then the lletter m to locate misspelled words.  Once you have
found a misspelleing, use the applications key to suggest corrections.
