Insert+F4 will unload JAWS in the "usual" manner. Insert+Windows+F4 will strip JAWS out rudely and generate a debug file if needed. Also this command, if put into a desktop shortcut will kill JAWS pretty quickly, especially if things are hung up: "C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\Runtime JAWS\12.0\JFWKill.exe" To load JAWS, if you've installed and have not changed anything, then Ctrl+Alt+j will start JAWS again. But give it 10 to 30 seconds after any of the above unloads before reloading, just to allow the computer to catch its breath.

Dave posted them some weeks back, but for the life of me I can not find the email and I have not been successful in finding them in the help topics. So please, if anyone knows, help me. I am taking an online course, and at times JAWs stops talking or reading the screen. So I have to leave the course and close JAWs. Then I start JAWs up and it continues reading the course material for a while. When it stops, I do it all over again. So if I could find out the short cut keys to unload and load JAWs, it would save me time. Thanks.
