Richard and all:


I have seen this issue before, but am not yet experiencing it here.  I currently use Windows 10 with Office 365 and the latest version of Jaws 2020.


I’ll save these instructions for future reference, but wonder if there is a way to do this globally, rather than for each individual document?


Thanks for any additional suggestions.

I just noticed that too.

With my wife’s help, I discovered two things.

One, make sure on the view tab you are on print view.

Also on the view tab, tab a bunch and make sure it doesn’t say Multipage after the zoom info.  If it does, arrow down to one page and hit enter.

I have had to do that with a couple of documents in the last few days.

Quite annoying.

Not sure if I’ve sent something to this list about this.

Something has changed.
I used to be able to arrow through a document and  read it from beginning to end.

Now I hear at the end of page 1 dialogue I’ve written, and it goes to page 3 and skips page 2 etc.

I think I’ve fixed this issue before but don’t think I kept that piece of information.

I do not hear this in Narrator at all.  I do hear it with all versions of JAWS on my PC.
