Hi Tom, Understood and with this now being online, is jaws not able to read this due to the document being a graphic or an image?
I’m not sure about this dilemma... sorry...

Oh yes, I have done these steps before on my own PC.
I’m referring to the fact that you can no longer read the document on line via the shared one drive link like you used to be able to do.
Sometimes, I just want to read a shared document as it is sent to me, without saving it on my PC for eventual editing or other work.
I hope this clarifies my quiry somewhat.

I do not believe this is what I am wanting you to find. If you download this document, save it in your pc, on your hard drive somewhere and then go open it, follow these steps and let us know how this works out.
Is this the same as “edit in browser”?
As I said in my last post, this is the option I could get to work, although it is rather clunky.
Certainly not as easy as it used to be.
When the document is open, go to file and then info. hit enter on enable editing. I’ve found this often fixes this problem.
I have not seen this however I am guessing that this is a Word issue as opposed to One Drive itself.
I have noticed a recent change in One Drive, and I can’t tell whether it is a Jaws or Microsoft issue.
It used to be that when I created a link to a One Drive Microsoft Word or text document file, and sent that link in an e-mail, the document could be opened and read as a Microsoft Word document in the normal way. In other words, you didn’t have to do anything in order to make the file readable.
Now, when I do this, I get a very confusing initial screen that I can’t figure out how to navigate. I get a message that says press alt shift A for accessibility help, but when I do this, Jaws does not read what’s on the screen.
Obviously, I’m missing a step here.
Can anyone with One Drive experience assist with this issue?
I’m using Windows 10 and Jaws 2019 with Office 365.
