That did the job. Thank you.

One way to do this is to try the following: 1. Hit Windows+M to minimize everything and goto your desktop. 2. Press J until you hear the JAWS version you want. 3. Press alt+enter to goto the properties for that icon. 4. Tab twice to get to where you need to enter a hot key to be used for this icon. 5. Press j to set the hot key to alt+conttrol+j. Note that if you simply press a letter key; it defaults to alt+control. 6. press tab until you hear "OK" then press enter. This should do it.

I am going to JAWS, and nothing you are saying is working. Nothing happens when I press the Applications key at all. From: Farfar Carlson Sent: Thursday, March 31, 2011 11:11 AM To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Jaws freezing Either highlight the icon on your desktop, or in the start/programs/jaws folder itself. If Alt+Enter does not work (it's the enter key on the main keyboard, not the enter on the numpad) then press the Application key third to the right of your spacebar then arrow down to properties and press Enter.

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.

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.
