Spell check in Word 2016


Alan Robbins
 

Using Win 10 pro version 1803, and latest version of Jaws 2019 I do not get full speech when doing a spell/grammar check in Word 2016. When I hit F7 to do the spell check in an open Word document, I’m given an option to change language and as I tab possible suggested correctly spelled words. The problem is Jaws is not reading me the word that is spelled wrong so I do not know what I’m replacing or if I want to replace. Anyone found a work around for this?

This does not happen in outlook 2016, spell check works the way it is supposed to.

In her Word 2016 text book, KathyAnn Murtha recommends either using the JAWS command alt+shift+l to locate misspelled words, or insert+z to invoke Word's quick keys, then the lletter m to locate misspelled words. Once you have found a misspelleing, use the applications key to suggest corrections.

Not having that problem here.  When I brought up spell check it mentioned what it had done and left me on a button that said review results, and then things were just like they always used to be.

Chris,
Thank you for your response. Are you invoking the spellcheck with the F7 key? Again, the F7 key works fine for me with spell check in outlook but in word it is as I described below.

Yes, this is word.  I've never opened outlook on this machine, and I have no intention of doing so.  I went into my account and found the full version number, here it is:

(16.0.11029.20104)


My word was last updated in October of 2018.  Maybe yours is more recent and they've changed something. 


My only other thought is, make sure the window is maximized.

Hello,

When in the spellchecker, insert/F7 should tell you the miss spelled word.

Nate,

Thanks, but when I do insert F7 it says nothing.
When I push F6 and tab through all the focused, one days document pane. Do you have other panes showing?

Ann,

Thanks, did not know about this. Better than nothing but it does not take
you to where you are in the document so you can ctrl arrow around to see the
context. It also does not spell the misspelled work out and then give
choices. Workable, yes, preferred to the normal behavior with F7, no.
Thanks for sharing

I don't like it either, but better than nothing. If you press enter on the word JAWS finds, I think it takes you to it. I still use f7, then escape to find the word, then try to figure it from there. Stinkin' annoying!

Chris,

 

Thanks, my version is different:

16.0.11029.20045

Looks like yours is more recent. I thought these programs updated automatically?

Alt F7 takes you to each misspelled word. Issue with this method is that it opens the context menu with suggested changes in it. That often works, but you have to press Escape once or twice to get out and read the word in context if it's not obvious what word it is. I think this is a Word Command, not a JAWS one, so it probably works well for sighted users who can see the misspelled word and are ready to see the list of suggestions.

The reason it works differently in Word from Outlook is that Outlook still uses the old dialog box interface, whereas Word has gone to a ride side pane display for spell check.

I'm sure it would update automatically if you waited long enough.  I believe I forced mine to do so, but I don't remember exactly how I did it.

Brian Hartgen's Leasey Advanced program does add some very nice functionality to Word which may make performing some of these tasks easier.

Thanks to all for a variety of ways to spell check in Word 2016. Preferred
the old way but technology moves on and we must too.

context if it's not obvious what word it is. I think this is a Word
Command, not a JAWS one, so it probably works well for sighted users who can
see the misspelled word and are ready to see the list of suggestions.

The reason it works differently in Word from Outlook is that Outlook still
uses the old dialog box interface, whereas Word has gone to a ride side pane
display for spell check.

I don't like it either, but better than nothing. If you press enter on the
word JAWS finds, I think it takes you to it. I still use f7, then escape to
find the word, then try to figure it from there. Stinkin' annoying!

take you to where you are in the document so you can ctrl arrow around

no.
Thanks for sharing

In her Word 2016 text book, KathyAnn Murtha recommends either using the
JAWS command alt+shift+l to locate misspelled words, or insert+z to
invoke Word's quick keys, then the lletter m to locate misspelled
words. Once you have found a misspelleing, use the applications key to
suggest corrections.

Hello George,

Here are the steps,

1. Start key, type apps and features

2. tab to list of programs and down arrow to Microsoft Office

3. Press enter and you will get an option to modify or remove

4. Press modify and then alt/y or tab to yes, you will allow this app to make changes to your computer

5. You will tab to a list with check boxes, down arrow an you will find/the option to check the box for repair

6. Press ok button and then choose quick repair, this will remove corrupt Office files, or choose online, which is a more in depth repair.


Keep in mind, when ever you do a repair of a complete program, you may want to take a few minutes to read about the changes that the repair will make. For instance, if you have changed your font defaults or auto formatting setting in Word, you will have to re customize them.

Hi everyone, I’m coming in to this a bit late, but here’s my findings.

Spell Check is unreliable in MS-Word 2016 via the F7 method. For some reason I have not seen the described behavior on PC’s running the 365 version of MS-Word.
I’ve advised that clients learn the alt shift L method as a backup anyway, but this has been a problem for at least a year.

I’ve spoken to Vispero, and they say it’s a Microsoft problem, and Microsoft says it’s a Jaws issue.

Not sure what is different in 365’s version that has this problem fixed.

Can anyone confirm?

Alt F7 takes you to each misspelled word. Issue with this method is that it
opens the context menu with suggested changes in it. That often works, but
you have to press Escape once or twice to get out and read the word in
context if it's not obvious what word it is. I think this is a Word
Command, not a JAWS one, so it probably works well for sighted users who can
see the misspelled word and are ready to see the list of suggestions.

The reason it works differently in Word from Outlook is that Outlook still
