Issues that this update fixes

  • Assume that you enable Mouse mode in Microsoft Word 2013 on a touch-enabled device. When you type some text in a table in the Web Layout view, Word 2013 crashes.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You start Microsoft Narrator on your computer.
    • You use Word 2013 to open a document that contains some list items.
    • You use keyboard to focus on a list item in the document.
    In this scenario, Narrator reads all list items unexpectedly. The expected behavior is that Narrator only reads the list item that you focus on.
