JAWS skips some objects in Word


When navigating by word (Ctrl+Right Arrow or Ctrl+Left Arrow), JAWS will state “blank” and skip over the second embedded object.


This occurs if two or more embedded objects are inserted into a Microsoft Word 2003/2007 document without a Tab between each object.


You can work around this issue by one of the following ways:

  • Use navigate by character (Right Arrow or Left Arrow) instead of navigate by word when two or more embedded objects appear in a document.
  • If creating a Microsoft Word document with two or more embedded objects, it is recommended to add at least one Tab to separate each of the embedded objects.
