moderated Word document issue/question


Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
I just received a Word document, but when I open it Jaws won't read it, any idea
why I can't read it and what I can do to get Jaws to read it? It's an
assessment, so it's meant to be filled in and it's not in protected view or
anything. Using latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows 10. Really hope
someone can help as I really need and want to get this filled out. Thanks
Madison

Hallo

I am experiencing similar problems. Word freezes whenever I open "old"
.docs files.


With new files it seems to help if I save to One Drive instead of to
"documents".

Hope it is a bug in Jaws that will cler up te problem when a new Jaws update
comes out.

Hi,

When this happens to me, I often try to enable editing by hitting alt +f
then letter i then letter e. If this does not work, as sometimes I do
experience, I then save to my system first and then it will read.

Best of luck,

Rick

Hi, sorry but there is one more thing I've done and will read properly.

Copy all with control +a. Open either a notepad or wordpad document and
paste it. Then open a new word document and paste it back to the Word
document. Not sure why but this often works when JFW refuses to read.

Hey madison.

Send me the form if you want and I'll have a look at it.
Could it be that they actually sent you a blank document? Lol

It sounds like you are working with a protected word form. You might be able to review the content of the form by pressing insert-Z to turn on virtual mode. Also try using the JAWS cursor. If indeed the form is a protected one, you should be able to move to the areas you need to fill in by pressing the tab key.
The article at:

While a little old, does describe techniques for creating such a form and also provides some hints as to how to navigate it.
