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.
