It would be very helpful if, when running a web page, especially one divided into many sections by headings, NVDA would allow the user to jump around using quick nav keys during a say all. Personally, this would be most helpful for me when reading the newspaper on NFB Newsline. Let's say I'm doing a say all and an article is being read that I do not wish to hear. I can simply press H to jump to the next article, or section with a heading, without stopping say all, pressing H, then resuming it again. Thanks for working so hard on such a great piece of software.

I think it could be confusing that "Automatic Say All on page load" is enabled by default. When enabling Allow Skim Reading in say all, people will have to leave say all mode on every page load, which is probably not prefered. I suggest disabling both options by default rather than have say all on page load enabled by default.
