So I did what you suggested and it seemed to work momentarily. I restarted my computer, reopened the document I was working in, and pressed the JAWS key plus page down to read the status line. It just says “Navigation.” I checked the
status line and made sure the things I wanted read were checked, and they are. But it won’t read the status line with the keyboard shortcut. Any suggestions? For reference, I’m using a Windows 10 Professional 64-bit edition, with MS Office 365 Home and
JAWS Professional 2021 with all updates up-to-date and installed.

The insert key with the page down (3) key on the number pad can give you the info. The page number should already be showing on the status bar but you
can add column and line number. Move focus to the status bar by using function key 6. Press the application key or Shift + F10 and use down arrow in the menu. You
should find Column and Line Number and you can press enter key on each of those to check them if you want those items to show on the status bar along with
page number. Press escape after checking the items you want. Using the insert with number pad 3 should then read you all three of those items you mentioned.
Stay safe & take care. Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say: "Close Enough!"

I know I asked some months ago, but I’ve since upgraded everything on my laptop and cannot find this information. I want to edit what is spoken in the status line when the JAWS key plus Page Down is pressed. Thanks
in advance for any help!
