I use the "resume reading" feature quite frequently, and it works well for the most part. Occasionally, it places me a line or two above or below where I was when I closed the document, but I find that manageable.

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.

In MS Word 2016 using JAWS 2019, when I open a document I can hear two
â€œpanesâ€� opening. As I F6 around, I hear when I go to the
â€œdocument paneâ€� (which I want) and also â€œpaneâ€�
which has a button labeled â€œresume reading.â€� I want to
disable this latter pane with the â€œresume readingâ€� 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?
