hold on Donald... not in jaws as in jaws window, but on a jaws shortcut like the one on your desktop or better, the one in the start menu, since that one has a higher priority. and you want to make a hot key for it which is done in the properties window which can be brought up with a right mouse click, alt and enter, or by hitting the applications key on a shortcut for jaws this has been so for , hmmmm I remember doing things like this with windows 95. elf Moderator, Blind Access Help Owner: Alacorn Computer Enterprises Specialists in customized computers and peripherals - own the might and majesty of a Alacorn! www.alacorncomputer.com proprietor, The Grab Bag, for blind computer users and programmers http://grabbag.alacorncomputer.com ----- Original Message ----- From: Ann Marie Medlar To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, March 31, 2011 12:06 PM Subject: Re: Jaws freezing I just tested J12 and it works. ----- Original Message ----- From: Donald Wardlow To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, March 31, 2011 11:05 AM Subject: Re: Jaws freezing Alt Enter does nothing in JAWS 12.

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.
