Sounds like you are doing things right
Have you use, JAWSKey+Z, before invoking

alt+control+m and alt+control+shift+a

What happens after using, Insert+Z, and then invoking the above?
You certainly have the other critical item, screen reader access on, taken care of.

Some of the keystrokes may not invoked while using the jaws, press insertPlus3 and press the above mentioned keystroke and see if it works!

Subject: Accessing comments and edits in Google docs with JAWS

Hi everyone,

At my current workplace, I am required to collaborate a great deal with my colleagues using Google docs. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how comments and edits can be accessed with JAWS in an efficient and seamless manner.

I found a video by Freedom Scientific on accessing comments in google sheets. The two commands the speaker suggested for adding new comments and viewing the comment discussion thread aren't working for me. These are alt+control+m and alt+control+shift+a respectively. When I press these keystrokes, nothing happens. Screen reader support is enabled.

I use JAWS 2021, Chrome 91.0.124.
