Hi Adrian and Ann?

Success! This was so much easier than I thought it would be. I was thinking I was really gonna have to get under the hood for this one. I have to tell you, though, that the first time I did alt+delete, it deleted the word. Then I tried it again, and Jaws said “PC cursor” and then gave me the info in inches, awesome! Thanks again, people. Cheers! Norma

Press alt-delete (on the six-pack, and maybe also the numpad) for JAWS to give you position details in inches. If it doesn’t speak in inches but center meters, post again because there’s a method to switch that I don’t recall at this moment.

Hi everyone,


I’m using J2020 and Word 365. I need to know, in inches, where a line of text starts. For example, If a character were right in the center, Jaws should tell me 4.25”.

And I also need the keystroke to read this info. Hope this makes sense. I’m sure I need to modify the Proofreading setting but haven’t spent a lot of time there so want to be precise in my changes.
