Hi Reggie and Sue,
    When JAWS is speaking, it says that it has moved to another page when
passing over a soft page break.  When it passes over a hard page break, it
says "page break."  
    What I suggest is to get rid of soft page breaks altogether by
increasing your paper size to custom, making it 20 inches long or so.  Then
you never have to deal with the soft page breaks at all.  
    I have seen books where the proofreader obviously got confused about
which was which and put page numbers just after soft page breaks, mucking up
the book.  Just get rid of them, as I said, by increasing your paper size.
That will make them disappear.

Hi Reggie,
The only way you know there is a soft page break is if there are extra blank
lines.  Jaws tells you when there are hard page breaks in Word, but not soft
page breaks.
Hope this helps,
Sue S.

What is a soft page btreak.  How does Jaws indicate this? Now doing all work
in Word (yes got rid of my Pac Mate) so I need to know what pitfalls to be
aware of in Word.  I am using a Focus 40 besides Jaws.  Any help from those
using Word would be appreciated.  Thanks.
