The control alt j keystroke only works if you set in the properties as a
shortcut, but by default it does not.

Next time try Insert+Windows+F4 to kill JAWS. Wait 10 seconds. Ctrl+alt+j to
restart JAWS.


That may get you up and running again. Of course it doesn't fix the
underlying problem. For that, I'd advise just moving your  arrow keys a bit
more slowly or give any web page time to refresh and settle down before
moving around.

Hi I'm using Jaws 11 with windows XP.  I'm having problems with Jaws on the
internet.  When I'm on a webpage and am using my up or down arrow keys to
move fast up and down a page for example, Jaws will suddenly stop talking,
and won't re-start, not even when I go into the Jaws folder and sellect from
there or use a short cut key.  It's happened a number of times today, and
the only way round it is if I re-boot my laptop, which I know isn't good for
my hard drive.  I'm not sure what's caused this problem, but I have been
getting error messages from Microsoft asking me if I'd like to send an error
report, but it doesn't say what the error is or how I fix it.  Could the
problem be net-based or something?  Any advice would be wellcome.  Thanks
from Lori Duncan.
