No Kevin, press jawskey-v while in word, then type “ui”, it’s a third letter I do not know, I think it’s a g, but ui is for sure. Uncheck that box if checked. Then go back to the search box and type “footnotes” and make sure you select the option for jaws to read their text, not just report the reference. The 0 character must have come inadvertently in my message, and I suspect I was in a non-us keyboard by accident. Sorry. Please do let me know how you are progressing with this.

I pressed the jaws key, 0 and then v. That doesn’t do anything. I then pressed jaws key o and v. That didn’t do anything. When Jaws reads your text below it says jaws key zero volt. Is that some special key?

Hi Kevin-all,

The trick is, while in word, to invoke the word specific jaws settings with jawskey0v and search for “ui” this is uig or something and relates to a Microsoft setting. Uncheck the box, and make sure footnotes are set to be read in place. Then I think you will be ok.

Hi, I’m using the most recent version of Jaws2020 and word 2016. When just reading a word document is it possible to setup Jaws so footnotes are visable without pressing the windows key plus ;? I know when I move through the document someone else has created, I wouldn’t know there were footnotes unless I was told. I guess I could always look using the windows plus ; keys. Yet if someone is just reading a book on a recreational basis will they know there are footnotes? What about Kindle? Thanks, Kevin
