Another possible issue that may have caused this is the normal template. if for whatever reason this changes, It screws up JAWS reading word documents. But Notepad works fine. The fix is to delete the normal template and reopen a word document and rebuild the normal template. to find the normal template:
Go to your main drive
Click on users
Click on the main user folder
Click on app data folder(system files must be unhidden)
Click on Microsoft
Click on templates
Delete normal(there may be two of them, one with funny symbols before and after it. That is the one that is messing you up, but delete both to get a clean template rebuild)
Do not delete the normal email template. that has nothing to do with your word issue. HTh

If only it had been that simple! My husband has worked on the computer for almost three hours but finally been able to restore everything to how it was. He has explained it to me, but I confess to being as ignorant as when he started, but the bottom line was something to do with the security settings in Windows.
Alt+tab and back.
Unload Jaws and reload it.
Or, as was also suggested, reboot your system.
🖖 Live long and prosper
