RE: selecting a sentence in Word

Which arrow keys are you using? I know to read by sentence, the correct
arrow keys are those on the numpad. Thus, alt+numpad-2 will read the next
sentence, while alt+numpad-8 reads the previous sentence. Alt+numpad5 reads
the current sentence. However, since I rarely use word, I haven't confirmed
that adding the shift key to this combination  will select for purposes of
copying.

Subject: selecting a sentence in Word

Using Word 2007, is there any keystroke way to select an entire sentence? I
know how to select a word or a paragraph, but am stumped as to how to select
a sentence. My Jaws teacher thought it might be alt + shift + down arrow,
but for me both that and ctrl + shift + down arrow selects the whole
paragraph. There must be some way quicker than ctrl + shift + left or right
arrowing one word at a time until I get to the end of the sentence.
