By any chance, when you arrow across the line of words that are run together, does JAWS say space marker between one word and the next?  If so, just press alt+8.

I have had this happen before as well. It has also happened when opening some documents from the internet. It reads as just a bunch of run together words, for example in a newsletter that I have opened.

 

It is really random.

Hey.

 

So from what youv’e said, the spaces are not actually there – JAWS isn’t “leaving them out” you have to go back and insert them.

What makes you think this is related to JAWS? Are you not experiencing the same typing glitch with Narrator or NVDA?

Because if this was happening to me the first thing that would probably cross my mind is that my keyboard is faulty.

Hello list members,

For the last  week or so, when I am typing an email, or document in word, (using JAWS , there are frequent instances in which the space between words is left out, and so I have to go back through the document/message and insert the space.

FYI: I am using JAWS 2020, though this was happening with JAWS 2019 as well.   

Is there a setting that I can add or change to reduce the occurrence of this Issue. This is really frustrating!

Best, Justin
