Are the problems with JFW 18 and 17 confined to any particular operating system. We are still using Windows 7.

While JAWS 18 does not work properly with Word 2016 and JAWS 17 crashes when reading large documents, here is more issues to be concerned with for the near future. Just a heads up.

The latest from Office 365

Pick up your pen and edit with Ink Editor Office 365 Exclusive

Mark up your Word document with pen gestures, and watch your edits happen automatically. Circle to select, cross out to delete, and snap highlighter ink to nearby text.

Watch drawings come to life with Ink Replay Office 365 Exclusive

With Ink Replay in Office apps, you can follow a sequence of handwritten notes and drawings, review step-by-step instructions, and see the order in which someone else marked up the document.

Someone writes a Word document with a pen and e-mails it to me. The output will be blank. Welcome to the new Office 365.
