Re: Symbols To My Liking.

Seems too short, Bob. I come up with 48 different symbols when I press 
Insert + 4. Using XP Pro, JAWS 12 Professional.

Are there perhaps some other constants in other headers?

I can do better than that.
I'll post the actual code below.

To my mind, this type of coding is short sighted and very restrictive.

Anyway, off the soap box: here's the code. References found in default.jss.
-----
VKeyboard.jss (the script)
include "hjconst.jsh"
include "hjglobal.jsh"
include "common.jsm"
include"VKeyboard.jsm"


Script VKSelect ()
var
 int iIndex,;For position in list
 string strTemp,
 string strListText
Let strListText = description+LIST_ITEM_SEPARATOR+
description1+LIST_ITEM_SEPARATOR+
description2+LIST_ITEM_SEPARATOR+
description3+LIST_ITEM_SEPARATOR
if ! strListText then
 return
EndIf
Let strListText = (stringChopRight (strListText, 1))
; now post the dialog
Let iIndex = dlgSelectItemInList (strListText, DLG_VKEYBOARD, true)
If iIndex <= 0 then
 return
EndIf
let strTemp = (StringSegment (symbol, LIST_ITEM_SEPARATOR, iIndex))
;TypeString (strTemp)
CopyToClipboard (strTemp)
TypeKey (cksPaste)
EndScript
