How do I get to Properties in JAWS? I want to set that key stroke to bring JAWS 
back up after I have to unload it.

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.
