See if the notes below help:

From: Tim Ford
There is a very handy JAWS method to more easily accomplish the task of reading comments imbedded in a Word document.

When in the document, hold down the Windows key, and press the, semicolon key. That brings up a nice and clean JAWS box in which you can arrow to and
press enter on any of the four options, comments, footnotes, endnotes, or revisions. Pressing enter on comments will give you what you want, a nice clean
box in which the author of the note is shown, and the full text of the comment is displayed, and you can easily read the text with the usual arrow reading
commands. (You can copy and paste any of that material, which is what I would do to put together a document back to the commenter, as opposed to trying
to enter your own comments directly into the base Word document.)

For each comment, there is a link you can press, and that takes you to that part of the document.

The above works the same for the four categories, comments, footnotes, endnotes, revisions.

The above works for me, and I cannot imagine an easier system for use with JAWS. Good luck.

Subject: 2 Issues while using JAWS in Word

Hi, All,

I use Word 16, through office 365, and JAWS 2019. Have also tried
2020, and the following 2 issues persist. They are:

First, The option to edit, delete and reply to a comment with shift+f
10, or the applications key, has now gone. Even if you are at the spot
where JAWS says 'comment', pressing these keystrokes does not allow
you to interact with the comments at all.

Second, when there are footnotes in the documents, instead of reading
out their number, JAWS sometimes says 'superscript'. I know for a fact
that it is a footnote and not a superscript, but JAWS does not say so.

Thanks.

Best,
Rahul

Hello Brian:
 
If you turn off hibernation, is the fast start up option also turned off along with hibernation or, is it still there, but hidden?
 
If it is hidden because hibernation is turned off, would it be a good idea, to first turn off fast start up, before turning off hibernation.

From what you describe it does appear that you have hibernation fully disabled, which would make Fast Startup an impossibility (which is a good thing, in my opinion).

If you want to reenable the ability to hibernate for the machine, you'll need to open an elevated command prompt (admin privileges) and enter the following command:

powercfg /hibernate on

After exiting, and restarting your system, then see what shows up in the Power Options dialog.

I was right. since I disabled hybernation off in Windows 7 before I
upgraded to 10, the fast start up check box isn't available.

First, before I go any further, I strongly suggest that Fast Startup be
turned OFF.  If you have a machine with an SSD you will not notice any
difference whatsoever in boot time whether it's off or on, and for
machines with HDDs the difference is not all that great and not worth
the problems that can occur from Fast Startup being enabled.  When I'm
setting up a Windows 10 system one of my standard steps is turning Fast
Startup off secondary to some of the really bizarre issues I've
encountered on systems with it activated and that disappeared once it
was turned off.

The above being said, Mario, did you follow Step 3 in Bill's
instructions, which presume you're already in the Power Options dialog
of Control Panel, that reads:

3. In the new window [which refers to the Change what the power button
does dialog]; click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.

If you do not do this you will never have the Fast Startup checkbox
available.  I have never seen it not be available, but since Fast
Startup is a special form of hibernation, if you did set up your system
to forbid hibernation entirely (as opposed to just not showing it as an
option) then Fast Startup would not be possible since it is a form of
hibernation.

This may apply to some. On my systems, I get an additional dialog that has combos for time to turn off display or go to sleep, after which is a link labeled "Additional power settings" that must be activated to reveal the Step 2 screen.

Hi, Richard.

 

To enable Fast Startup, do the following:

 

1. Access Windows 10 Power Options. This can easily be achieved using several methods:

a. Right click in the lower left corner of the screen (or simultaneously press the Windows + X keys). This will bring up an 'Admin' menu. Simply select Power Options from that menu.

 

b. From within the Desktop; navigate to Control Panel>Power Options. Or

c. From within the Start Screen; type "power", click on Settings, and select Power Options from the list of results:

 

2. In the 'Power Options' window; click on Choose what the power buttons do (from the left hand panel):

 

3. In the new window; click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.

 

4. Check Fast Startup.

Unfortunately, I don't find a fast startup checkbox. could it be that
because I upgraded to Windows 10 from 7 that the fast startup was
automatically disabled? I had previously turned off hybernation in
Windows 7.

download the 2020 offline installer, temporarily disconnect from the
