There are times when you won’t get around getting used to something new and getting used to Chrome is in my opinion one of the better investments in time you can make since when the Chromium based Edge comes out it will be very similar and there is a reason why Chrome has something like 60 or 70% market share.
Not sure why you are having such issues with Jaws and Office 2019, I use Office 365 and I don’t have such problems.
Have you tried a Jaws repair or uninstall and reinstall it to see if that helps. When you installed Office 2019 I assume you first uninstalled Office 2010?

The problem is not only Firefox. However, Crome is not my favorite simply because so different, as I see it, from Internet Explorer and/or Firefox. Creature of habit I am guilty of being.
Using the most current jaws, Windows 10
Another notice… when I am receiving email, jaws will practically freeze up or at best, severely lag. What is this now about? All my problems are since Jaws 2019 was installed and with the Office headaches, in the last week since upgrading from Office 2010 to 2019.
Based on what Richard said this sounds more like it’s how Firefox renders the page since it is not spoken in Edge or Chrome. Chrome in my opinion is by far the best browser option right now, it is extremely accessible and very fast.
Just out of curiosity, what is it you dislike about Chrome?
Also, if you want to know exactly what Jaws is saying, let it speak a line where this word is spoken and then go into Jaws speech history with Jaws Key + Spacebar and H and you can then review the text in the virtual cursor.
Which version of Jaws do you use, don’t think you mentioned it.
Also a problem with IE but everything is a problem with that browser. I dislike Edge and Crome so not a concern. I’ll notify the Jaws folks to have them look into this when I find the time…
I can confirm it is likely a Firefox issue since Edge doesn’t say the word “all” before those items either.
But, since I use Firefox I went and checked and yes it does say all.
But, I use DuckDuckGo as my home page, so I never deal with that as I am not a fan of google.

This is the information I am also hearing. I hear the word all, or sounds like all. This is only within the pc curser, not the jaws cursor.
This sounds like not an issue with Jaws but an issue with the website. I have come across many websites where some word or string of characters is spoken which visually is not there, but it is somehow part of the websites code and Jaws picks it up. Have you tried a different browser like Chrome?
Having said this, I just went to Google.com and clicked on this item “How search works” and I don’t hear Jaws saying anything extra, here is a portion of that site from Jaws speech history, I use Chrome as my browser and I use Jaws 2019:
heading level 2 How Google Search works
heading level 2 Instantly matching
Here is an odd one, I turn on my computer and went into my internet browser, Mozilla Firefox. My homepage is set to google.com and I was just going down to see if anything new is on this page and a link I haven’t noticed before, how search works, was found. I clicked on it to see what they say about how their search works and I’ve noticed a very disturbing issue. As I arrow down, I hear “all” before each link or section. What is this? How do I get jaws n ot to read or say all before all as I move down through this information? This is new to me, I hope someone understands what I’ve come across. This is not the “say all” command. I actually hear the word, all, as it comes to a new link or paragraph or section of information.
This is also same on Internet Explorer and I am to believe with all browsers.
