As Peg points out, this is not a good bidding sequence with a void. South could hold Qxxx in spades with the A of hearts in which case 7 spades has no play whatsoever.

However, this is a great illustration of the use of the Grand Slam Force convention which has been around forever. It says that a jump to 5NT tells the responder to bid 7 of the last suit bid with two of the top three honors; otherwise bid 6.

So after 1C - 1S - 5NT responder bids 7S, but only 6S with Qxxx.
