JAWS Power Tip: How To Automatically Announce Document Headers And Footers

Released: 2/2/2023

Share to Facebook

JAWS for Windows Tips.

Have you ever wanted to know if a document has a header or footer?

You can press INSERT+F1 when a document opens, but you would need to do this on each page. This is very time consuming. So you can change a setting in Quick Settings to have these announced automatically. Here's how to do it:

1. Open Microsoft Word.

2. Press INSERT+V for Quick Settings.

3. Type the word “Header”.

4. Arrow down to “Header and Footer Detection not checked”.

This option controls whether JAWS detects and announces headers and footers in the current section of the currently opened document.

The default setting is OFF.

When the option is ON, as a document opens, JAWS announces the presence of headers and footers in the current section of the document.

If the option for Page, Section, And Multiple Column Breaks is set to on, the presence of headers and footers in a section will be announced when the section change is announced.

The Power of JAWS!
