Re: getting the time and date with one press of insert f12

Hi. As I said in another message, I'm fully aware of what hot key to press to get the time and date,f12 once to get the time, press it twice quickly to get the date. I want to be crystal clear here. What I want to be able to do is to be able to get both the time, and the date, by pressing insert plus f12, only one time instead of having to press it twice quickly. What I'm not sure of is what script to modify or even what code needs to be changed so I can do this. I'm not a script writer so I'm not very well versed with the scripting language. So any help from someone who knows how to do this would be very much appreciated. hope this is clear now.


Thanks.

Hi Chris,
I would think that you could look at the keyboard manager
and find out what script is assigned to that keystroke, and then slightly modify the script to announce both pieces of information at the same time. I can do it easily enough with a simple saystring, but I'm guessing that fs probably uses the say useing voice function.

Subject: getting the time and date with one press of insert f12

Hi folks, I'm pretty sure this is a scripting issue, and I've never
been able to wrapp my mind around the scripting language, all accept
for code that I've gotten from other folks and put to use
myself.  But like the subject line says, I've noticed that other
screenreaders give you the time and date with one press of a hot
key.  With JAWS, you have to press insert f12 twice to do this.  So,
is there a script, or some other type of modification I can make so
that JAWS will say, 1:32 PM on August 27th, 2007?
Note the time I gave is my current time just as an example. I'm
pretty sure this can be done, but I've never understood why JAWS
doesn't do this too.

Thanks for any help.
