Re: alt+shift

Actually, I did press jawskey 1 and that combination. Jaws didn't say anything about alt+shift to me. That's why I asked.

Um you are changing your keyboard layout.  If you were told no change then
this means that you do not have any other keyboard layouts installed. Note
if you press jaws key 1 and hit this key it informs you that it  changes
your input langwige. So see has nothing to do what so ever with what is on
screen.

Bobcat,

I just tried it and it said "no change." In any case, whatever that means,
why would it be a Windows command? A sighted person is just reading text,
not having it read to them, so it doesn't matter whether that text
originated in the UK, the United States, or wherever, I shouldn't think. as
written

Is this a Jaws command or a Windows command?  Alt plus shift toggles a
setting which makes Jaws say alternatively, English Canada then English
United states.

Remember some people were talking about Jaws starting to announce English
United States?  I accidentally hit alt+shift one day and heard that
announcement.  I hit it again and it said English Canada.

I checked to be sure the language bar is off. I even went so far as to also
turn it of in Jaws options, basic settings, windows system parameters.

I just alt tabbed from the Jaws window back to this OE window and Jaws said English Canada. I had toggled the setting to Canada and Jaws was telling me
that what it is set to for this window or application.  It only makes the
announcement if the language is different from the previous window.
