Will give it a try, but at least for me, using braille, I lost the ability to find footnote numbers in documents and thus proceed with reading them.

I find that leaving UI checked works fine.
If you look instead for the footnote setting, and make sure it is checked for On, for me, Jaws reads the foottnote as I read the document.
Here is what Jaws says about the UI setting:
Use UIA for Word 365 Documents checked‑

*I’m not the card shark
I am outside word now, but while in word after hitting insert-v I simply type ui on the search box and I get it. Have not explored the actual category, but let me know if you are having difficulty, and will have a look.
What category is it under?
Kevin may have had an option called “ui” something checked, which is located in the word options of jaws. I think it’s related to office use only, but I am not sure. I found that, while that was checked, footnote numbers did not show up in text, though speech might well have read them, I usually work with a braille display, so it was absolutely essential for me to have the footnote numbers showing. Once I unchecked that box, note numbers came back as usual.
Hope this helps,
He meant just jawsKey plus v.
The main thing is looking at the footnote options to have it read.
I'm not at my computer right now to check the exact wording.
