JAWS for Windows with Microsoft Office Tips.

Use Quick Keys in Word to navigate through your spelling errors.

These are the JAWS commands:

1. When in a Word document, press INSERT+Z to toggle Quick Keys on. This enables you to navigate to specific elements using letters on the keyboard without typing these letters into your document.

2. Press M to navigate forward through the misspelled words one at a time. Focus will be on the first letter of the word. JAWS reads the misspelled word and the sentence containing it.

3. Press SHIFT+M to navigate backward through the misspelled words.

4. When on a misspelled word, use the Windows commands SHIFT+F10 or the APPLICATIONS KEY to open a context menu.

Press DOWN ARROW to navigate through suggestions.

Press ENTER on a suggestion to select it and correct the misspelling.

5. Alternatively, use the Windows command ALT+F7 for a list of suggestions, then press ENTER on one to select it.

When you press one of these keyboard commands, Quick Keys will automatically toggle off.

Press INSERT+Z to toggle them on and continue navigating using M and SHIFT+M.

The Power of JAWS!
