Word 13 and Tables

jyandt.martin@...
 

Morning all.
 
Using Word 13, jaws 2018 and Windows 10 on a Dell laptop. I am trying to remove a table but keep the text and am having somewhat of an reacurring issue. After making sure I am in the table in question, I follow the following steps:
 
1) I press the jawskey with the number 3 above the alpha keys.
2) I press the alt and number 5 on the keypad.
3) I press the control x keys for cut.
This is where the problem comes in.
4) I go to the shift F10 applications combination to go to the table keep text option, and after a few seconds, I get the message for either closing the program, wait for the program to respond, or restart the program.
 
I thought it might be the size of the table itself, but have done the process for larger tables with no problem. Any suggestions/advice will be deeply appreciated. Thanks.

Alt j l v when you are in the table.

Arrow down and go to the edit firld and hit space bar, then hit enter.

 

I think you have to select the table first.

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Justin

Try with the alt j l v when you are in the middle of the table, first.
