moderated Re: Editing the status line in Word with JAWS

Hi, Loreal. You might want to check in the view menu, and make sure that your document's zoom setting is set to 100%. There should be a button that says Zoom 100%. This could be one reason that the whole status line is not being read. Another reason could be that your document is not set to Print View. This is also located in the View Menu, and also in the Status Line. It is one of the things that would be checked when you use F6 to look at which things are checked to be read in the status line. I find that more of the status line is read when Print View is checked.

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!
