Re: How do I make the "pane" with the "resume reading" button go awayin MS Word 2016?

The cool thing is that if you want to go back to where you stopped reading--as I often do with my students--just press the spacebar and it takes you there.

Yes, it is annoying, but I just ignore it as well. It goes away quickly. I’ve never used it, so I don’t know if it even works. I bookmark anything I want to resume reading.

I just wait a moment and it goes away. I figured that was a "new feature" that is a tiny bit annoying since I usually don't want to resume reading. I have not checked to see if it is something to uncheck.
Have you googled it?

In MS Word 2016 using JAWS 2019, when I open a document I can hear two “panesâ€&#65533; opening. As I F6 around, I hear when I go to the “document paneâ€&#65533; (which I want) and also “paneâ€&#65533; which has a button labeled “resume reading.â€&#65533; I want to disable this latter pane with the “resume readingâ€&#65533; button. In this particular document, it happens to have numerous headings and a few heading levels; so perhaps Word thinks it is some sort of an eBook that I am reading? Whatever the case may be, how can I disable this?
