I don't quite understand what the Alt + Shift key does. This a Jaws command that says it's setting the keyboard layout to English (UK). But would this change the actual keyboard language settings in the Control Panel that Flor talked about? I've had a quick look at the Jaws configuration settings and help but can't easily find much info about it.
