My recollection is that nothing the user does avoids this problem. I'm not talking about using shift to pause and resume reading. I haven't checked to see if the user looses his place. I doubt it. but the only means I am aware of to stop reading and quickly find your place again is to make a point of remembering a word or phrase that is not commonly found in the document and, after you stop reading, using find to get back to your place. I haven't tested this problem for a number of months but my recollection is that every way I attempted to stop reading, not pause but stop it and keep my place, was not successful. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Ibrahim Ahmad" <ibrahim.ahmad2010@xxxxxxxxx>

try to use the down errow to stop reading especially if you are going to correct something. i'm not sure that it works, just try. if you don't want to correct something in the page, press shift to continue speech without chicking where the curser is. ----- Original Message ----- From: Ab?lio Guimar?es

   Hello friends,
   I've been using nvda and  it really is getting better day after day.
There is something in ms word that I don't know how to solve. Well when I am reading a document and when I stop I don't know what happens but the cursor is never where it should be. For exemple if I am in page 25 the cursor can be in page 18 or 21, I don't know.
    Some friends in Portugal and Brazil have the same problem.
   Well, here is the problem.
   My idea is to let you know this so that it can be solved when possible.
   Students would love it!
