Re: Jaws 10.0: How do I get JAWS to bypass a key permenantly

You need to write scripts that send the keys to the program,

In the .jss:

Script UpArrow ()
  TypeKey("uparrow")
EndScript

In the .jsd:

Script UpArrow
Synopsis Key [assthrough script

And in the .jkm:

[Common Keys]
UpArrow=UpArrow

(In the last the key comes first then the script.  You'll need one of
these for each key that should get passed through to the program that
JAWS normally scarfs.
