Re: fix for jaws speeding up

Linda,

May I add something to this?  The reason Jaws speeds up as it does when you 
page down, is because this is a deliberate command to make for that purpose 
*while* Jaws is reading in any of its continual modes, such as Say All. 
It's supposed to do this.  There isn't anything wrong.  So here are a couple 
of suggestions:

to prevent this happening in the first place, make sure to press page down 
only when Jaws isn't in the midst of reading.  an extra trick I sometimes 
use to make sure it won't happen, even when I've interrupted continuous 
reading, is to press the PC cursor key, Num Pad plus.

And, if you forget to be careful, and Jaws starts over reading the beginning 
of the last Say All section and speeds up, just press page up while it's 
reading, to reverse the slowing.

Also, of course, when everything's quiet, you can increase or decrease 
reading speed by pressing page up or page down in conjunction with the 
control and/or shift keys, but I just forgot how to do this, though I do it 
all the time.  Please, someone remind me!

Anyway, this should be an easier approach than unloading and relaunching the 
program.

Of course, when jaws isn't speaking at all, you can deliberately speed up or 
slow down with nterruped to interrupt

Hi,

I have found a fix that may help some.  Sometimes if I page down in jaws
(any version), jaws speeds up real fast.  I find if I unload jaws and reload
it, it will resume normal behavior.
