Re: Weird JAWS behavior - blank inserted between paragrapghs and heading/paragraph

Just curious: have you tried this with the latest release of JAWS 2022?

I find I need to keep updated with my operating system, browser, and
assistive technologies' at all times to keep up to date.

Digital technologies change consistently,

With JAWS I'm hearing blank between each paragraph and need an extra down
arrow (2 per para) - NVDA correctly doesn't say blank and moves para to para
as I'd expect.

It's been a long time since I've used JAWS so is this just an annoying
glitch that's JAWS specific (JAWS 18) or is there something in this code
thatNVDA is ignoring but JAWS gets annoying with.
