The ability to switch between split windows by voice appears to be broken, at least in Word 2016 and 2019. I think it's because Microsoft's developers changed the behaviour of a long-standing keyboard shortcut, F6. Pressing F6 used to switch between split windows; now, F6 moves the cursor between different elements in the user interface, including the ribbon, the status bar, panes that appear on the left or right side of the screen... and between split windows.

If I'm careful, I can say "press F6" to jump from one split window to the other, and "press Shift F6" to return to the previous split window.

But if I say "press F6" one time too many, I must repeat the command 4 or 5 or 6 times to navigate to the other side, or say "press Shift F6" twice.

If there are built-in Dragon commands to jump between split windows, I don't know what they are, and can't find them in the Command Browser.
