In case this is peculiar to this document, close it out and open another one. If JAWS is still reading paragraph markers, close MS Word, open again, and see if it is still doing it.
If the above steps do not resolve the problem, then it is likely that, somehow, one of the "View" tab "Options" has been changed.
In MS Word 2003, go to Tools and Options. Arrow with left and right arrow (you might have to use up and down arrow too) until you hear "View tab." Then hit tab until your pinky finger starts to ache. Seriously, hit tab several times until you come to a set of check boxes covering things like tab characters, paragraph markers, and so on. I'm guessing that "paragraph markers" will say "checked." If so, press spacebar to uncheck this option.
Exit, and I'm pretty sure this will solve your problem. BTW, sometimes having the paragraph markers spoken is a good thing; however, this is a Word thing, not a JAWS thing.
