Hi John, read below from the Jaws help:

"Performing an Action Stated in a Balloon ToolTip A system tray balloon
ToolTip is a way for applications to inform you that an event has occurred
or an action is required. Often these ToolTips state that you need to "click
here" to perform a certain task, such as downloading updates for Windows.
With JAWS 9.0, when such a message appears, you can now press the JAWS left
mouse button (NUM PAD SLASH) to immediately act on the message before the
ToolTip closes.

In JAWS 8.0 and earlier, to select a balloon ToolTip, you had to enable the
JAWS cursor and navigate to the ToolTip. Often the message would close
before you could find it. As you can see, it is much more efficient to use
the JAWS left mouse button.

Note: The INSERT+TAB keystroke speaks the current control, its ToolTip, and
tutor message. If you wait to act on a balloon ToolTip message, you can
press INSERT+TAB to hear if it is still open and available. If it is, press
NUM PAD SLASH to select the ToolTip. If you do not hear the ToolTip, then
the message has closed. At this point, you can press INSERT+F11 to see if
the application that caused the balloon ToolTip to appear is available in
the system tray."

Bloody jargon! i.e. (Balloon). Without it it takes ages to find what
otherwise can be found in less than a minute!

Cheers,
Amro

Hi everybody. I'm sure there is a jaws keystroke for this, but I can't
remember it. When a screen alert comes up, for instance telling you that a
new version of a programme is available, and saying "click here". I've done
a Google search but haven't come up with an answer. Hope someone can help.
                     John.
