I had a similar problem in a Word document.  I changed the font in the
entire document to Aerial, regular font, 12 point, and JAWS was able to read
the text using the PC cursor in the normal fashion.  If you still have the
document, I wood be interested in knowing if changing the font makes a
difference for you.  I realize that the font in the document you were having
problems with contained a generally acceptable font, but as we all know,
computers act strangely for many unknown reasons.  Sometimes exiting and
restarting JAWS corrects focus problems as well.

Yes, it was me who had that "troublesome word document" - and the only way
you can read it is by using the JAWS cursor.
