Re: flash drives and JAWS

This isn't the issue for flash drives that it is for a moving disk. Typically you can just unplug the flash drive without having to use the safely remove hardware option.

hi Alicia,
little correction for previous posting.

you have 2 way to do this,

1. press "JawsKey+f11" for system tray. look for the icon call "Savely Remove hardware", 
press "alt+d" for left double mouse
click, then will pop-up a list of your removeable device you select the device that 
you want to remove and press tab to "stop
button" and press spacebar, wait a moment, jaws will anounce you can safely 
remove that device.

or

2. go to "my computer", look for the drive letter for your removeable device and press 
"applicationKey" then press letter "j" for
eject. then after that you can savely remove your device.

HTH,
Allan Wong

Hello, Everyone:

I was told today at school that you have to click on this green arrow in order 
to properly remove a flash drive from the USB port
safely. Does anyone know if that is true and if so how do you click this 
graphic with JAWS?

Thanks,

Alicia
