When the, Save , button comes up tab 1 time to the, Don't save , button and press the spacebar on that.  The document should close without any supposed or unwanted changes.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I too, when using control shift g, get asked if I want to save the changes. I didn’t know about this command.

Hi Al & Adrian,

 

When I think to use the, Control, Shift + G , keystroke instead of the, Insert + Pagedown , keystroke and get that save dialogue I tab 1 time to the, don't save button, and press the spacebar.  This closes the document with no problems or changes to the document.

Al,

 

I’m not Mike, needless to say, but your post made me curious. I confirmed that with Word 2016, I have the same experience using shift-control-g. that is, when performing no other operation on a document, after using that command I need to save changes in order to close the document.

 

My only thought is that the same thing happens when the only operation I perform on a Word document is to copy some text. I haven’t changed it at all, and yet here to,, I must save changes in order to close the document.

 

In either case, whatever change the program perceives has occurred, I think you can be confident it isn’t one that affects the text or format in any way.

Hi Mike,

 

Thank you very much for those GREAT key strokes.  For years I’ve been using the insert and the down arrow keys and I like this new system.    

 

I just tried it on an existing Word document and it worked with lots of info, but when I tried to exit my document, JAWS asked me if I wanted to save changes.  Other than opening the existing document and using Control, Shift and the letter G, I did not change my original document.  Are the Control, Shift and the letter G adding something to my document?  I experimented with the same document and used Insert and the down arrow keys and JAWS did not tell me if I wanted to save the document.  It just exited my document.  Am I doing something wrong when I open up my document and using your commands?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Oh, by the way, I am using JAWS 15, Windows 7 and Word 2010.

 

Al

Another keystroke that will give a little more than the word count is Control, Shift + G.

Adrian,

Thanks for that clarification. Mike is certainly the master at providing
detailed instructions at bending Microsoft Office to our wills with JAWS.

Alan,

FYI, yes JAWS key+pagedown/3 still usually works with Word 2016. However,
sometimes it fails, in which case Mike B's instructions explain how to
return the status line to showing these items, or not, as you choose.

Alison,

I'm running Word 2010 on a Windows 7 computer and I use JAWS key plus
PageDown key which reads the status line which reports Page number, line
number, and word count. I don't know if this works in newer versions of
Office but it works well on my system.

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.
