Hi Megan, If you are using JAWS, it announces it as it passes over a page break. It actually says "page break." If it is a soft page break that you are passing over, Word will just announce the new page number as Word is counting which it does by counting soft page breaks. You're really better off increasing your paper size and eliminating all soft page breaks that way. Then you never have to wonder at all about soft page breaks because they're gone. Does that help?

So, it there's a soft page break, a break in Word for example where there'd be a new page if you printed it but not a new page in the book, I don't understand how you could easily determine where to add page numbers. I don't think I made sense. If a book has more soft page numbers than hard ones and you need to add page numbers, how do you know where to add the numbers? How do you know which is a hard page break and which is a soft one? Megan _____ A Good Credit Score is 700 or Above.
