moderated Re: Problem with word2016 with Jaws 2020 the latest update

You know, it could be a word setting that has it showing spac characters, tabs,  hard returns, etc.
Off hand, I cannot remember where those options are.
It could be under File, Options, Proofing/
I'm not where I can check right now.

I’m using Jaws 2020 with the latest Jaws update from April, and have never seen this happen with Outlook 2016 in Office 365.


Maybe the wrong speech setup got loaded?

Hi All,


Asking this for someone on another list.  Hope someone can help.


When I type anything in my word2016 and save the file.

When I open it with Jaws2020 the latest update, I can read the text but after each word I get the placemarkers speech and I see the placemarkers sign in my Braille display too.

When I close Jaws and start NVDA, AND OPEN THE SAME FILE, I don’t have any problem.

So my understanding is that the problem is only within Jaws.


Any solution or help, please.
