moderated JFW2021 getting stuck in a Word Document


Marty Hutchings
 

I was recently trying to read a Word Document with headers and lots of bulleted statements using the latest JAWS 2021 and when I pressed Insert Down Arrow to read the document, JAWS gets stuck when reading a heading or a statement with a bullet.  It will continue to repeat the line until I press the Down Arrow.  I then restart the reading and all goes fine until the next heading when JAWS would start reading the heading line over and over again.  Has anyone else experienced this behavior?  I was able to finish reading this document by using JAWS 2019.

Marty,
I have experienced the same problem. Oddly, sometimes I can read headings and bulleted items okay, and other times not so. I had planned to try an older version of JAWS but haven't gottn there yet.
Glad I'm not the only one seeing this.

You may want to check the view.Draft or Print view seem to work the best for me, but also make sure it isn't trying to show more than one page at a time.

Richard,  I did try switching from Print view to Draft View, but the same thing happened.  How do I know how many pages are being displayed and how do I just show one page?

Not happening for me, everything’s working/reading normally. You might want to do a JAWS repair nd/or contact Vispero for more support.
