JAWS Power Tip: What is the Single Line versus Multi-Line Ribbon? And How Do I Know Which One I'm Using?

Released: 1/6/2022

JAWS for Windows Tips.

You can use the ALT key to access the Microsoft Office Ribbon.

You will know if you are using a single or multi-line ribbon by what JAWS says.

If you hear JAWS say "collapsed" when you go to the ribbon, then you are using a single line ribbon.

If you hear JAWS say "expanded" when you go to the ribbon, then you are using a multi-line ribbon.

Now you ask, who cares? Well, knowing this will help you to navigate the ribbon.

For example, when you are using a multi-line ribbon you can use the TAB key to navigate through the ribbon.

When you are in a single-line ribbon you must press ENTER on the ribbon you want JAWS to expand before you use the TAB key.

You can toggle between a single-line and multi-line ribbon with CTRL+F1.

The Power of JAWS!
