I don't think the keystrokes for this have changed in quite a while.
I don't remember now if it was the same in word 2003, which is the one I started with, but I know there were keystrokes to get it in that one and it has been alt+r+w at least since Word 2007 to the present and I suspect it is the same in Word 2019.

FYI, this also works in Word 2010.

Hi,

As an alternative key combination to obtain word count, you can press ALT R   then W. This works in word 2016, not sure about other versions.

To show number of lines, line number, or many other options  in the status bar in Word try the following:
1. Press F6 until Status bar is highlighted.  Or, until you hear Jaws report, Status Toolbar.  It should be the 2nd press of the F6 key.
2. Press Shift + F10 to show options.  This keystroke must be used because a right mouse click or pressing the application key will not.
3. Down arrow through the available options, and when you have found line count or something else of interest press the spacebar to check or uncheck the item.
4. when done making modifications simply press AltF4 or escape key.
5. Review your status line to insure the settings have been properly modified.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Until recently, pressing Jaws key 3 has told me the number of words in my MS Word document. It now tells me the number of characters and which line I am on but I am having to press function key 6 in order to get a word count. Is there a way I can amend this?

I found a keystroke jaws+alt+s where I can change the scheme to read the colors -- I don't know why it did not work when I tried to do it from the settings center, but it seems to work fairly well, only problem is that Jaws goes silent sometimes for 15-20 seconds after I hit jaws-to-pc hot key -- using Chrome.

Thanks for everyones suggestion, I hope this works.
