I finally found the Margins sub menu. There
is a list of margin types and I assume that I just press ENTER
to set it.
The problem is that when I use two Jaws
commands to get the left margin setting, I get two different
When in the Word document, (before setting
margins) and with the cursor at the top left, I use these
commands: alt plus numpad dot and the INSERT plus F1.
The first Jaws command gives the left margin
as 2.5 inches while the latter command gives a left margin of .5
If I set the margins to "wide" the left
margin should be 2 inches but these commands give it as 2 and 4
What is happening?

Oddly, only custom margins shows top and bottom, as well as left
and right. But setting margins to narrow, adjusts both sides and
top and bottom, even though it doesn't indicate it is going to do
that. Check with insert+f1 for margin settings.

Thanks for your responses.
The alt+q does not work but the alt+P might.
I should have mentioned that I have Word 2007 with the latest

Perhaps the alt+q works with a more recent version then with the
Word 2007 that I have.

Pressing "m" gives me:

From here I tried tabbing and arrowing down, left, right and up.
I can't find a layout ribbon.
Nothing was heard that might lead to a path to margins.
Any more suggestions on where to navigate from alt+p?
