moderated Re: "Ghost Reading" in JAWS 2018


Happens all the time in Outlook 2016. What's worse is that refreshing the page doesn't do anything and Jaws will not read what's currently on the page without you having to alt plus tab out of the window or maybe tab or shift tab depending on the window you're on.

I still have Jaws 18 and it also does this. You can fix it by hitting Jaws key plus escape whenever it happens.

When having JAWS 2018 read on one webpage, and transitioning to

previous page, and quite a bit of it, rather than picking up with the
new material on the new webpage. I hasten to add that this is not a
transition being made while JAWS is in the midst of reading on one
page while the next one loads, but after JAWS has already had reading
stopped on the currently displayed page prior to initiating the transition to the next.

I can never recall this occurring in older versions of JAWS though,
since I don't use JAWS routinely, I might not have encountered the
behavior in the past.

What gives, and is there a way to stop this from happening?
