moderated Reading a long Word document

John Doering
 

Hello:

I wish to read a book in Word document format.

Can someone please tell me how I can indicate in the document where I am so I can close the document and when opened again I can find where I left off?

Any help would be  appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance,

Perhaps word has bookmarking capability, but what I do is put two Xs in the file and search for that later.

1 Thessalonians 4:16)

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." Ronald Reagan
William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, said, "The chief danger of the 20th
century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness
without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and Heaven
without Hell."
Today, we are but one generation away from paganism! (Acts 4:12)

Hi John,

I'd insert a bookmark at the place you want to leave off reading - the option is on the ribbon's insert tab.

When you reopen your document to resume reading, turn on JAWS quick keys with JAWS key+z, and navigate to the next bookmark by pressing the letter b until you land on the one you want.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi John/all,

It’s a daily routine for me working with long word documents. What I am doing is set a bookmark by hitting cntrl-windows-k, jaws will tell you “marking has been set” or something like that. Once you return to your text, just hit alt-windows-k, and you will be returned back to where you left. Just be mindful that this is a onetime bookmark, i.e., it is unique as to where you set it for the last time. It keeps no track of previous ones.

                                                            Hope this helps,

                                                            Takis

That sounds like temporary placemarkers, not bookmarks.  Bookmarks are a Word function, and placemarkers are JFW.

 

To set a bookmark, press alt-n, then k.  Name the bookmark and press enter.  You can have tons of bookmarks in a document, but each one needs a unique name.

 

To move to a bookmark you have set, press ctrl+g (goto), Shift+tab to the list of options which will have ‘page’ at the top, and arrow down to book marks.  Press tab, and Word will list your bookmarks in a combo box that JAWS may or may not read, and you can move to the one you want.  If JAWS doesn’t read the list, which it didn’t for me, press the first letter of the bookmark and that seems to wake it up.

 

What version of Word are you using?  I know that Word 2016 has a feature that will remember where you left off in a Word document the next time you open it.  I get the prompt about whether I want to do this all the time.

That sounds like temporary placemarkers, not bookmarks.  Bookmarks are a Word function, and placemarkers are JFW.

 

To set a bookmark, press alt-n, then k.  Name the bookmark and press enter.  You can have tons of bookmarks in a document, but each one needs a unique name.

 

To move to a bookmark you have set, press ctrl+g (goto), Shift+tab to the list of options which will have ‘page’ at the top, and arrow down to book marks.  Press tab, and Word will list your bookmarks in a combo box that JAWS may or may not read, and you can move to the one you want.  If JAWS doesn’t read the list, which it didn’t for me, press the first letter of the bookmark and that seems to wake it up.

Shift+f5 is supposed to do that, but it almost never works for me.

What version of Word are you using?  I know that Word 2016 has a feature that will remember where you left off in a Word document the next time you open it.  I get the prompt about whether I want to do this all the time.

Is there a key command for inserting a bookmark?

Hi John,

 

I'd insert a bookmark at the place you want to leave off reading - the option is on the ribbon's insert tab.

 

When you reopen your document to resume reading, turn on JAWS quick keys with JAWS key+z, and navigate to the next bookmark by pressing the letter b until you land on the one you want.

 

Cheers,

 

Ed

Hello:

I wish to read a book in Word document format.

Can someone please tell me how I can indicate in the document where I am so I can close the document and when opened again I can find where I left off?

Any help would be  appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance,

However, that is just for one, temporary marker.

Alt+n then k allows you to add multiple bookmarks with separate names in Word documents, and control+g, shift+tab to the list, press b, for Bookmark, tab and either select or type in the name then press alt+g, followed by escape to land on your chosen bookmark.

 

Lots of keystrokes, but if you want to have multiple bookmarks in a very long document, it works well.
