Re: Getting Ride of "grammatical error" in word

You might try the following. Why it works I have no idea but I had the same problem with the setting not stopping the grammatical error detection. I set the Advanced Grammar and Proofing checkbox to the checked state, used apply and OK and the detection of grammatical errors stopped. I went back into the settings center, removed the checkmark, used Apply and OK and the grammatical error detection did not resume. After unloading and reloading JAWS as well as restarting my system the feature still worked as you would expect without the grammatical errors being detected.

Take care.

I am also having the same issue and wondering why setting under JAWS is not working?

had to go into the word options and turned off the automatic spelling and grammar while typing.

Alt+f, (file)
Press the letter T for options
Go down to proofing
Then tab across until you hear 'check spelling while you type' uncheck
this Tab twice more until you hear 'correct grammar while you type'
uncheck this Tab to ok

How do I stop jaws from saying "Gramatical error" all the time, when
reading documents? Just started with last update of Jaws.
