hello;

sounds like the start screen is coming up when you open word.

the instructions I sent yesterday should stop this behavior

 

 

       The impossible is the untried,  Never under estimate the power of a dream.

Good morning

 

When I open

Word and outlook in office 2016 if I type a couple of letters  Jaws reads menu and I can't type until I click the mouse or alt tab until I get back into word then I can type again.

 

I thought if I rebuilt the template that might clear what is going on

 

Any help would be appreciated.

hello;

if your looking for normal.dot, you won't find it no matter how hard/long you look.

you should be looking for,

Normal.dotm

 

what makes you think you need to repair?

how are you doing the search?

if you really need to find the Normal.dotm,

you find this file,

"C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates"

Hello:

I am using office 2016 and Jaws 2018 I ma working with my tutor when she asks me to find something in a word document I can't find the text when she takes over the computer she can find the text using TeamViewer.

I was going to regenerate a new normal.dot template, but when I do a search by pressing the windows key and letting up on it and type normal in the search box it won't find the template on the computer.I tried to reset office but that did not help.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
