well, that's why I call a good screen reader, more than one
single way to do the same although it may represent, to some
degree, a unique way to help some users to skim a text quickly
but with full meaningful sentences. You may forget this, but not
only native English speaking users require a screen reader, and
for EFL and ESL students, this feature represents a valuable tool.
Of course, as a native Spanish speaker, I do what you guys do when
I go through a text, in Spanish but, try it on a language
different than yours and we talk later!

To add to your idea, you can press
control-down arrow instead of p. It saves you from having to
go in and out of JAWS quick settings.
Actually, I have
never used the JAWS skim read because it reads either the
first full sentence of every paragraph or first full line. I
want to read just enough of a paragraph to get a sense of it
and then move on. That does not always require reading a full
sentence or line. Just the first four or five words might be
enough. And if speed is the objective, and it is with skim
reading, I don’t need to hear any more than what I need to
hear. So you can do this in a couple of very quick and easy
ways. First, hold down Control and keep it held down. Then
press down arrow just enough to hear what you want to hear at
the beginning of a paragraph, then hit down arrow again, and
Or you can put
JAWS in Quick keys mode with Insert Z and then just press P to
jump to the next paragraph, P again and so on. Much more
efficient than JAWS skim read.
