Hi Mario,
I tried both the things: reinstalling JAWS as also maximising Notepad
to fit the whole screen.
The issue strangely persists.

Subject: Trouble with selecting deleting text with JAWS 2021
Dear all,
I use JAWS 2021 on a Windows 10 machine.
In notepad, JAWS does not speak when I either read/ select word by
word or I back space to delete some text.
Only option is to restart JAWS. However, this problem occurs
repeatedly, making restarting an irritating option.
I have updated to the latest update of JAWS 2021.
Please guide.
