Re: [Bulk] CTRL + up arrow, CTRL + down arrow, JAWS has funny behavior
No, it's not funny at all, and yes I suffer through the same pain. These
keystrokes broke some time in the past and have not worked reliably for
quite a while.
I'm currently still fixated with JAWS 12.0.525 and refuse to move ahead
until they release the next major version. Fixing things like that in the
sub-releases is not a priority.
From my Dell Latitude 630, currently not nearly close enough for my comfortto my Audio Recording and Mixing Studios, San Francisco Bay Area. But I'll
try to remedy that situation.

They still say it is the same for Standard Windows Keystrokes in Help Topics
CTRL + UP and CTRL + DOWN
In My JAWS 12, using both Windows 7 or XP machines
In a rich text or or plain text whether it is in an email or in a Wordpad
file I have funny results. Do you?
When I use CTRL + up arrow to read the previous paragraph.
Or when I use CTRL + down arrow to read the next paragraph.
I will find that instead of reading the next paragraph, instead JAWS will
just speak the entire text from the top of the file or top of the email
I can stop it and read a line at a time and it works just fine.
but using my old reliable CTRL + UP and CTRL + DOWN, I am often irritated by
I could say that it is similarly funny behavior when trying ALT + UP and ALT
+ DOWN to read a sentence at a time.
But I will just leave it there.
Is there a suggestion or a fix?
Or am I just an individual who is the only one to whom this is occurring?
One note. This does not seem to happen when navigating my text on a web page
or in a Microsoft Word document.
Just in Wordpad and in my Email messages using Windows Live Mail of a rich
text or plain text type of message.
