So, even though I did uncheck smart read, I am still having the same problem with JAWS not reading when I read by word. It may read some of them, but they it still won't say anything when I read word by word.

Hi, Justin. It's in one of two places. First it's in the JAWS Startup Wizard, under Help.
Secondly, it is in Quick Settings (JAWS key plus V). When the search box opens, after you press JAWS key plus V, enter the word smart, and Smart Reading will come up in the search. If it is checked, try unchecking it, and see if that makes a difference in how you can navigate with the arrow keys. Make sure to TAB to the OK button to save the changes.
Where is smart word reading?
Check to see if Smart Word reading is on. If it is, try turning it off.
I have Jaws 2021, and windows 10. Office 2016
I've noticed, that when I read by word in Microsoft word, that JAWS sometimes doesn't read.
The cursor will move, but it will not say anything.
When I read Character by Character it works fine.
Why is that?
