Re: Jaws freezing

Donald,

They mean for you to go to your desktop and find the icon for the version 
of JFW you wish to set a hot key.
One way to do this is to try the following:
1.  Hit Windows+M to minimize everything and goto your desktop.
2.  Press J until you hear the JAWS version you want.
3.  Press alt+enter to goto the properties for that icon.
4.  Tab twice to get to where you need to enter a hot key to be used for 
this icon.
5.  Press j to set the hot key to alt+conttrol+j.  Note that if you simply 
press a letter key; it defaults to alt+control.
6.  press tab until you hear "OK" then press enter.

This should do it.

What do y ou mean by highlight the icon?  I am going to JAWS, and nothing 
you are saying is working. Nothing happens when I press the Applications 
key at all.

Either highlight the icon on your desktop, or in the start/programs/jaws 
folder itself. If Alt+Enter does not work (it's the enter key on the main 
keyboard, not the enter on the numpad) then press the Application key 
third to the right of your spacebar then arrow down to properties and 
press Enter.

Highlight the version of Jaws you wish and press alt+ enter for 
properties.

How do I get to Properties in JAWS? I want to set that key stroke to bring 
JAWS back up after I have to unload it.

The control alt j keystroke only works if you set in the properties as a 
shortcut, but by default it does not.

Lori,
 
Next time try Insert+Windows+F4 to kill JAWS. Wait 10 seconds. Ctrl+alt+j 
to restart JAWS.
 
That may get you up and running again. Of course it doesn't fix the 
underlying problem. For that, I'd advise just moving your  arrow keys a 
bit more slowly or give any web page time to refresh and settle down 
before moving around.

Hi I'm using Jaws 11 with windows XP.  I'm having problems with Jaws on 
the internet.  When I'm on a webpage and am using my up or down arrow keys 
to move fast up and down a page for example, Jaws will suddenly stop 
talking, and won't re-start, not even when I go into the Jaws folder and 
sellect from there or use a short cut key.  It's happened a number of 
times today, and the only way round it is if I re-boot my laptop, which I 
know isn't good for  my hard drive.  I'm not sure what's caused this 
problem, but I have been getting error messages from Microsoft asking me 
if I'd like to send an error report, but it doesn't say what the error is 
or how I fix it.  Could the problem be net-based or something?  Any advice 
would be wellcome.  Thanks from Lori Duncan.
