moderated How do I know where I am in an MS Word Document


Mark Torgerson
 

When I earned my bachelor’s degree, I was able to check and see which page I was in on my MS Word documents. After a ten year absence from being in a university. I am not sure how to find which page I am on. Any ideas are appreciated.

 

Peace Be with you,

Hi,

 

Press the JAWS key and the number 3 on the number pad. That reads the status line, on which is the page number.

 

All the best

Simpler way is to press JAWS key and the number 3 on the number pad. That will read the status line not only of Word, but any app where the status line can be detected.

Use alt delete.  Use the delete on the six pack.  That will tell you where your cursor is located via your top and left margin.

 

Thanks,

That is how I do resumes.

 

You can check where you are using the alt delete.

Which makes perfect sense.  I was using an old, old note I had, and thought there was a standard "read status line" command, but in searching the JAWS 2022 Keystrokes document the only one that I could find that had "status" was for Announce Progress Bar Status.

Which is also handy to know, but I'd think of that of answering what my position is on the page I'm on more than I'd think of it as giving me the page number that I'm editing.  Both, of course, are incredibly useful.

Yet another way to hear where you are in a document and on the page: using a keyboard with a numpad and Jaws in laptop mode, with numlock turned off, press AL/T and the zero key on the numpad. Jaws will announce the page number and how far down the page and from the left margin your cursor is. That is what I use and the response I get most of the time. For some reason intermittently the Jaws response will be page number then some coordinates that I have never understood. Closing and restarting Jaws usually produces the page number and location in inches from top and left margin.

BTW – I have never figured out how to do this on my laptop without a numpad.

 

Using latest version of Jaws2022, Windows 10.

Alan,

 

You and Justin are indeed correct, but it was news to me, as it will be to Steve. That key combo didn’t used to include the page number while in Word. For that reason, I would interrupt the verbalization after the top and side margin numbers without realizing there was more to come. The two of you got me to double-check and learn something.

Sorry, I gave the wrong keystroke combo. Instead of the numpad zero key it should be the period/dot key. Pressing ALT and the numpad period key will result in Jaws reading the relative location, such as “PC Cursor active 1.92 inches from left, 9.56 inches from top, page 1” as I just copied and pasted from Jaws history after pressing ALT and numpad period key while in a Word document with Word 2016. My apologies for not confirming the keystroke before my prior post.

There is a JAWS command, ALT with Delete. You hear where the cursor is on a specific page in terms of inches from top and edge as well as the page number.

 

Cordially,

To elaborate on what Ed said about relative page number, getting a page number depends on how the document is structured and what exactly you want.  I'm adjusting someone's dissertation in Word and the front matter uses Roman numerals. A new section is started for all the chapters, which allows for restarting page numbering in Arabic numerals.   In this case, the Alt + delete technique gets the page number on the page header, while  the JAWS + 3 or status bar techniques reads the absolute page number. So, if I'm at chapter 1 and am on page 1 of the dissertation according to the number in the header, when I press JAWS + 3, I hear page 15 because there are 14 pages of front matter.  But if I press Alt + delete, I will get the page number on the page in the header. In this case, 1.
