After you tab down to the suggested list and your word is not there, I find I can shift-tab back up to the misspelled word. The focus is at the end of the word. I use insert-left arrow, which places the cursor at the beginning of the misspelled word. I can type the correct word, space once and use ctrl-del to delete the misspelled word. Hit ALT-C to make the change. Spell checker moves on to the next error.

Subject: Help with spell check, please
I’m using Windows 10, latest version of JAWS, and MS Home and Student 2019. I’m trying to spell check a large document. If a word is spelled wrong, and none of the choices are what I want, but I find the correct spelling of the word, how do I enter it, myself, without getting out of spell check? I’m having trouble with this. Please help.
Thanks in advance.
