I have just tried pressing the shift key 8 times and it does not turn on stickey keys for me.

It's not what Operating system you use, it's how productive you are with it.

Well, that's a point in favour of not having the shift key operating
thus. JAWS can only do so much... before Windows and the wiles of
Microsoft take over mastery.

Something I've just discovered is that, whilst in reading mode, if you press the same shift key five times, it activates sticky keys. What a voyage of discovery this subject has promoted.

Barry, That's a good point. I usually use control to stop speech but perhaps I should be using up arrow as sometimes control moves me a little way from the line where Jaws was speaking. This only seems to happen in Internet Explorer though. When I pressed control when reading this email in read all mode Jaws stopped exactly where I pressed control.

In the test I just did I had to press the up arrow twice to get to the
line
above so either way it was still 2 key presses for me.

But I just found out that pressing the right arrow key has the same
effect
as right shift and the left arrow key the same as left shift.  In other
words pressing the right arrow key when in say all mode moves to the
next
line and visa versa.  But i would never have found this if i had not
been
testing the system.  Not sure what to say next need time to think.

Thanks,
Nigel

But how would you then move up a line and stop during say all. I
suppose
you would have to stop the Say all, then use the cursor keys. That's
no
great hassle though.

Barry, I think the arrow keys are the best as this is easier to learn for the user and makes more sense than duplicating a function with unrelated keys.

This would be similar to cue and review on a tape deck while in
reading
mode. I like the idea but I think it should be a different key,
perhaps
on
the number pad or even the letters q and r respectively.  Yes, I know
cue
is
spelled with a c but the position on the keyboard is easier with q.

Just wanted to mention a possible interface idea. Has freedom and or other screen reader vendors ever considered using the up and down arrow
keys to
move up and down a line and keep reading when in reed all mode. In
the
case
of Jaws this would be instead of the shift keys.

I think this would be more intuitive for a new user to learn.

Thanks,
Nigel
