Re: jaws key + windows key + F4

Hi, Brandon,

I have the same keyboard and never knew that.  It's worth experimenting with.  
Thanks much!

Judy

  So there are two jaws keys or insert keys on laptops without a numpad:
  first is caps lock, second is 1 left of the delete key (on my keyboard it's 1 
left from the very top right key).
  Insert J does not work if you use caps lock J, only the key next to the 
delete will work as the insert for insert J.
  This is odd, but it's what it is.
  Thanks,

  Brandon Keith

  The caps lock is used as the insert key on laptops without a num pad.

    Actually, caps lock plus j reads the previous word. You need to press the 
actual insert key found besides the delete key on most laptop keyboards.

    Insert+J on the laptop doesn't do anything. Is there another command to 
bring up Jaws on the laptop lay-out?
    Thanks,

    This is my method, too. fortunately, almost every hard key combination is 
for a rarely used operation. the one I hate the most is the virtualized window 
command, reassigned in JAWS 11 to JAWS key-alt-w. but the one no one has 
complained about is insert-j for the JAWS menus. Now that's unnatural, 
requiring you to use the left index finger for a key otherwise pressed with the 
right hand.

    You'll notice I'm using the desktop layout.

    HI Dave;

    The way I invoke this keystroke is, right little finger on the Insert key, 
right thumb on the windows key, & press the F4 key with the left index finger.  
I have small hands so, I have to be creative with some keystrokes that should 
be part of that game called " Twister ."  LOLLOL

      Michael,

      That keystroke is supposed to completely (and very quickly) kill JAWS and 
      simultaneously create a debug file dump for analysis purposes. If you 
didn't 
      notice anything, then perhaps you didn't actually hit the Windows key.

      I agree with you. Some of these keystrokes actually hurt my 58-year-old 
      fingers.

      Mike mentioned some command of jaws key + windows key + F4. Using the
      insert key on the numpad, that's a really difficult stretch. In my
      perfect world, the jaws key would be in the middle of the keyboard
      right below the spacebar. I hate having to jump all the way over to
      the numpad with my right hand and frequently have to move my left
      hand out of position to cover a certain key, then have to move both
      hands back. Seems so inefficient...

      btw, what does this keystroke do? I tried it and heard my computer
      make a little sci-fi sound. Figured I'd better do it a second time to
      toggle it off, whatever it was.

      Michael
