moderated Help with spell check, please


Shirley Tracy
 

Hi everyone,

 

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.

 

Cheerfully,

 

Shirley Tracy

Hello:

Press Escape to leave spell check. Fix the word manually, then press F7 again to continue.



Kind regards,

Curtis Chong

Hi Shirley, 

 

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.

Curtis and list,

 

This works fine in short documents, but in a long one, bringing back spellchecker gets cumbersome and time-consuming. Lee Anne’s suggestion is more practical in such cases. In previous versions of Word, there was an edit field option. I’m happy that she’s found a substitute, which I myself will start using.
