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.

    Alt Enter does nothing in JAWS 12.

    Highlight the version of Jaws you wish and press alt+ enter for properties.

      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

        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.
