Power Point And JAWS?

So I have a question that I was hoping you could help me with. I have to edit pictures and other graffics in Power Point 2013 for a computer class, but I'm having some major problems. I can't seem to find a picture after or before it has been added or one that has already been inserted. Also if I am on Power Point for too long JAWS says that I am in "14 minute mode" even when I know I'm not. Has anyone had experience with this? What did you do? Thank you for your help in advance!

Re: Power Point And JAWS?


When you are in Powerpoint and are playing hide and seek with a picture, how are you going about finding it? I don't want toi assume anything, but have you tried pulling up a list of objects in order to see whether that picture is there?

As for your JAWS in 40-minute mode issue ... JAWS sometimes does that. Does it return to 40-minute mode if you turn it off and turn it back on? Does it do this in any other app? What version of JAWS are you using? This might be a bug worth reporting to Freedom Scientific.
