When this happens to me, I need to unload and reload JAWS. Have you done that?

When i do control x it says nothing. When i do control alt v, it also does nothing. Any ideas?

is this pretty common? So do you start a document, or do you paste it
pretty much in the same document?

Press control + A to select all text, control x to cut/remove, then
instead of the standard control + v to paste, press control + alt + v
for the special paste command. This last step will place you in a
vertical list box, arrow down to "Unformatted Unicode Text", which
for me is at the bottom. Press enter. Wait for a good 10-20
seconds, since larger files take a while to process. You will end up
with a very clean text-only format. Good luck!

Hope everyone is doing well. OK, so i haven't used word in a while
but now i need to.
Someone sent me a .docs file.
So i opened it with no problem.
When i arrow down it keeps saying table this and that, keeps saying
table, row, column, and all that. What is the best way i can get to
reading the text in the file?
