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.
you have Jaws set to automatically begin reading
on web pages and/or in emails?
That may add to some of this.

I have experienced this issue but not enough to

Subject: Question about Jaws 2021 jumping
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 https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.reddit.com%2F&data=04%7C01%7C%7C9356b9f12d374218ddde08d95220220c%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637631120226887720%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=oZLpJADH3i9PG900GHIFXjQxbpXw3o1aBv1Dm%2FDaWOU%3D&reserved=0 or youtube.com,
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
