Thank you. I will try that to see what happens.

This also happens if a page has scrolling content. The new version of Reddit does this, as do Discord and Slack, to name a few services. When you’ve reached the end of a screen of content, the app will automatically load more. This throws JAWS off.

If this is happening when a page first loads, try waiting a second and then pressing insert plus esc to refresh the page. If you start navigating before the page fully loads this will happen sometimes. HTH.

I don't think I have it turned on. I'll take a look.

Do you have Jaws set to automatically begin reading on web pages and/or in emails?

That may add to some of this.

Software means never having to say you're finished

I have experienced this issue but not enough to have a consistent answer or reason why.

Hello all,

I am a new user to this email list. I've had Jaws since around 2018; I only initially used it as a secondary screen reader. I always heard that Jaws was a fantastic screen reader to use. However, in my discovery, I was configuring Jaws from scratch, and after I was done configuring, minus the speech/sound schemes, whenever I went onto different websites using Google Chrome, a good example is;data=04%7C01%7C%7C9356b9f12d374218ddde08d95220220c%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637631120226887720%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=oZLpJADH3i9PG900GHIFXjQxbpXw3o1aBv1Dm%2FDaWOU%3D&amp;reserved=0 or, but when I either used the arrow keys, or the h key to cycle through headings, it would start jumping me to the top, or bottom of the page, or to a completely different part of the page, etc.. Would anybody be willing to help me troubleshoot the problem? I'm using the latest version of Jaws 2021. I can give the backup file if anyone wishes to help troubleshoot. Either that, or if any Freedom Scientific representatives are on this mailing list, are there any common settings that could cause this jumping?
