Not all the time they don’t;
That’s why I asked the question,
Many times instead of moving page up and page down like they are supposed too,
Ctrl+pgup/pgdn say something like “previous occurrence/next occurrence” respectively;

Hi, Richard. In Word, page down and page up by themselves move screen by screen. CONTROL Page Up and CONTROL Page Down move page by page.
HHello Steve, and all,
If I turn jaws keyboard help on with insert+1, hitting page down by itself says that it sends a page down command to the active cursor.
If I hit control+page-down Jaws says nothing.
I’m wondering now if page-down and up just work by themselves in Jaws 2018 and Word 2016?
You can reset Ctrl + PageUp and Ctrl + PageDown to moving by page after doing a find by doing Ctrl + G, Enter. That should take you to the next page and after than you should find the other keystrokes are back to their defaults. Works for me, anyway!
I believe I reported it to both Microsoft and FreedomScientific, but it has been around a long time.
So, you either have to restart word after a search, or settle for using page-up and page-down by themselves to move one screen at a time.
Not great choices.
Does jaws know about this bug?
So if I hear you right,
I must restart word each and every time after I do a search on a document?
The previous and next occurrence refers to your last find command.
I believe this is a Word issue.
If I start fresh with a session using Word 2016, control-page up and down behave correctly.
If I then search for a word, from that point on, they attempt to repeat the search, which is not helpful.
Got win10 msword2016 and jaws2018… (newest one);
My question is:
Whilst in word,
When I do a control page up or control page down,
Instead of moving forwards and backwards through pages of a document,
It says something like “previous and next occurrence” and puts me in some dialogue box?
Is jaws doing this?
Please advise further.
