When I open an attachment, I just press F6.  Can then arrow to the word “Enable” and select it.  You can then save it or you can save the attachment, then press F6 and keep on going.


Hope that helps!

Subject: Protected files in MS word



I’m using the most recent versions of Jaws2020 and MS word2016. When ever someone sent me a MS word file it is always in protected mode. A number of people that sent me the file didn’t send the file in protected mode. Is there a way to stop this from happening? To read it I have to move in and out of the window. I cannot save the file so I would copy it and paste it in another file. I was able to save attachments in Outlook. I still would like to be able to open the file from the email, read it and then save it.
