Reguardless of the layout, alt and your up arrow should go to the beginning of the current sentence. If done again, it will move to the beginning of the previous sentence. Alt down arrow will move to the beginning of the next sentence.

This sounds like you are in the laptop mode. I have not used the laptop mode for several years, so I might be slightly off.
1. JAWs+u should move backward a line
jaws+i should read current line
jaws+o should read next line
jaws+j should go backward one word
jaws+k should read current word
jaws+l should read next word
jaws+m should read previous character
jaws+comma should read current character
jaws+period should read next character
As you can tell this provides most navigation you will need with the caps lock/jaws key and keys that are either on the right hand home row or one position off of it.
I stopped using laptop mode because my caps lock key does not work as a modifier on my current system. But I did find this a much better way to edit documents and emails than the standard layout.
