Glad it worked. I don’t know that it works as consistently as I’d like and the label JAWS reads aloud for that box could be better. If you cannot get Alt A to work, try tabbing around the dialog a bit, then doing Alt A. This seems to help.

Subject: Resolved/RE: Jaws problem making labels in Word 365
I had previously tried Alt A to get into the address field with no luck. But, I tried it just now and it did the trick. I don’t know what the problem was previously, with Office 365 and Jaws it could be any number of things. I am just so glad that you made the Alt A suggestion and it worked.
With much appreciation,
I’m in JAWS 2020 with Office 365. It’s not operating as smoothly as I would like, but I’m able to read it. It seems like JAWS loses focus a bit and also sometimes read a bit extra. There is a shortcut key of Alt A to get to the text box where the address can be typed or appears if you hit the label option after selecting the text you wanted in your label. I’m not sure that I have a consistent work around and I’m heading into a meeting, but a quick answer is to use Alt A and either Insert tab or Insert up arrow to read the current line. It seems that if I type my address into the text field in the label dialog, I can hear as I type, but I am not consistently able to reread what I typed without navigating away, using Alt A, then one of the read line options. I’ll come back to this conversation later and see if I can help anymore later today.
I also forgot to ask, what label template? I can try to play with this later today or this evening with JAWS and see what happens for me. It's helpful to know exactly what it is you're trying to accomplish and how you're going about
