Re: JAWS Not reading full line with up and down arrows

1. Have you made sure the screen is maximized?
2. Is some other window open, like an update process or something?
3. If this is on the same computer, how long have you tried to have two versions of word coexisting? That is generally a very bad idea from what I have been told by I.T professionals.

Check out my web site at:

“The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy has this to say on the subject of flying.  There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss." --Douglas Adams, from Life, The Universe and Everything, p.59

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any." -- Alice Walker

When I press up and down arrow in an editable word document, instead
of reading the whole line, JAWS is only reading 3-4 words at a time. I
am using JAWS 2018. This is happening for Word 10 and 16. Even NVDA is
behaving this way. What to do?

JAWS 2018 and WIndows 10 is what I am using.
