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

Hello Tom,
I am trying to get JAWS to let another program use the arrow keys and is not trying to change anything in default. Unfortunately, I haven't had any luck so far. I did try your method of putting a ; in front of down arrow in the file for the program but all that does was undo what I did which was set the down arrow to pass key through and then try and get it to press down arrow after the pass key. Before, I could at least press down arrow twice to be able to use down arrow, but all putting a ; did was give no reaction when pressing down arrow. I'm guessing that the a ; stopped the down arrow from doing what I set it to do in the game, but when I used that, it goes back to using the default settings which interrupts the program from using it. Hope that makes sense and would appreciate any other suggestions you or anyone else might have.

I am not quite sure what you are trying to accomplish or what behaviour you are trying to work around.

I can tell you that in the jkm file the line uparrow=uparrow is:
The first uparrow is the keystroke and the second uparrow is the name of the jaws script. If you comment out that line by putting a ; in front of the line and save the file jaws will not intercept the uparrow keystroke. I believe if you do this in the default jkm you would need to restart jaws in order to pick up the changes. I however would strongly recommend that you don't do this in the default but create a jkm file for the application where you wish this behaviour and make the change.

Hello again,
I tried
Synopsis Key passthrough script
in the .jsd file.  I also tried
Synopsis Key passthrough script.
and no luck.  Any more ideas?
I even tried calling freedom scientific and first the guy advises me to turn off JAWS until I explained again that the developer is trying to add support while using JAWS. He then suggests that I put JAWS to sleep and then he interrupts himself realizing what he's saying. He then suggests that I look at the freedom scientific development network, (FSDN) and look up the TypeKey function. I did that but still didn't do much for me.
Anymore ideas?

I messed up the line, it should have been:

Synopsis Key passthrough script.

My understanding is that the .jsd is required for JAWS to actually
allow the key binding.  It seems kind of silly, but *shrug*.

Hello,
Ok.  I got the jss part.  However, you said
In the .jsd:
Script UpArrow
Synopsis Key [assthrough script
Am I supposed to write Synopsis Key [assthrough script right under where
it
says Script UpArrow in the .jsd file or is there something I have to do
in
the .jss to get it to show that in the jsd?  I also checked the .jkm and
it
says [Common Keys]
UpArrow=UpArrow so either the problem is I don't have the .jsd part right
or
it didn't work.  Thanks for the help so far.

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.

Hello Dave,
I just tried that for the up arrow but no luck.  It just does nothing.
I did start a script that might be half way there, but can't seem to
get
the
second half of it right.  It looks kind of like this:
Script DownArrow ()

PassKeyThrough ()

Pause ()

TypeKey ("DownArrow")

EndScript

At this point, if I press down arrow twice I could get it to work since
the
first press of the down arrow did what is the equivalent of the jaws
key
plus 3 command. Now if I can only get it to press the down arrow right
after the pass key through, then I would have it.

Assign a .jkm file to the game program. Then set assign the arrow keys
to
do
nothing. I'm guessing that will override the default.jkm file.

Anyone else think this is worthy of consideration?

Hello,
The developer of  a new audio game is trying to include JAWS support,
but
the developer can't get JAWS to let the game use the tab, escape, and
arrow
keys. Of corse, keys like tab and escape I can just use JAWS key plus
3
on
the number row since its not used too often, but the arrow keys are
used
very often. My question is there a way to set JAWS to let a certain
program
use those keys? I was thinking that one way was to write scripts, but
after
reading about 7 chapters of the basics of scripting, I still can't see
how
it could be done.  Not to mention By the sixth chapter or so, I
started
to
get real lost.  Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
