RE: Strange Keyboard Quirk

Kane,
        Did you or do you still run the  iTouch configuration software when
you run JAWS if you do that is your problem. Is there a logoctech icon in
your system tray when you start up your system at the sametime JAWS is
running?

What I do is place the iTouch Configuration on my desktop and kill it from
starting up on its own I also go into control panel and tell the Keyboard
set up that I use a microsoft compatible keyboard, nothing special and the
multi function keyboard buttons still work.

HTH's

To Robert and other Listers:

Yes, specific to the last question: At least one of the keyboards I'm using
is Logitech.  The funny thing about this quirk is that it doesn't show up in
the same way with all keyboards.  This bizarre key echo situation is
specific to just certain keyboards, and the identity of the key "echoed"
with these multimedia buttons is different depending on which keyboard I'm
using.  Is there a way I can customize this in Logitech software?  If so,
knowing how to do this (off-topic) might also help me to customize the use
of the multimedia keys as hot buttons--say, to open my e-mail program or a
spreadsheet with just one button.


Thanks,

-Kane
