Try using Alt+Down Arrow for JAWS to read a sentence.

Don't know if this will work with Kindle, but the reading
commands are located in the Jaws help under Keyboard
commands. Try and use Insert key plus left or right arrow to
read prier or next word, or Insert key to read by Prier line
which is up arrow, or next line which is down arrow.

Would also suggest checking out to see if Jaws will work
with Kindle through a Google search.

Hope this helps.

Hello -

I am new to Jaws, having migrated from Window-Eyes. Using
Jaws 18 I was attempting to read and study a book on my
Kindle with accessibility plug-in. To my dismay the keyboard
commands I am accustomed to using with WE 9.5.4 and Kindle
to navigate reading do not produce the expected results. For
example, Read Previous sentence

CTRL Shift Up Arrow (or Left Arrow) does not read anything
but announces "selected." Is an alternate set of keyboard
commands available for reading with Kindle and Jaws 18?
Please direct me to a URL or send me a list of keyboard
commands off-list if you have such a list in a file on your

Thanks - Ed Culpepper
