Re: reading from cursor to end of document issues
This message contains a number of suggestions.
The screen saver should be off because it will stop read to end after a time of reading. There is no keyboard activity so it comes on. But it doesn't come on right away and read to end will work for perhaps thirty seconds or a minute, however long the screen saver waits to come on. This problem is that read to end stops after the current line.
If the desktop layout is being used, it should be asked, are you using NVDA down arrow or NVDA 2 on the numpad. In JAWS, using NVDA 2 on the numpad starts read to end as well as using down arrow on the main keyboard. In NVDA, you must use down arrow on the main keyboard, but you can use einumpad insert or any other NVDA key, including the insert on the main keyboard as well. What key are you using as the NVDA key? I seem to recall hearing of an odd circumstance where one NVDA key, such as insert, worked, but caps lock didn't, on one computer. You may want to try another NVDA key. and if those3 things don't work, try running NVDA with add-ons disabled and see if it works.

if you use desktop layout and SayAll still does not work for you, just
find screen saver on control panel or by search find it and set it to
i am sure that you can use SayAll in all commen and accessible
programs like web browsers, notepad, wordpad, notepad plus plus and
but unfortunately SayAll is not supported in openoffice or libreoffice
if you use them.
