JAWS Memory Dump Command

If a total loss of speech occurs, it is difficult to recover JAWS without 
rebooting the computer. However, a reboot provides no diagnostic information to
assist Freedom Scientific in researching the underlying problem. 

 is a new JAWS keystroke for emergency recovery. The new keystroke closes JAWS, 
terminates all related processes, and creates a memory dump file. The diagnostic
information can be used to assist Technical Support. (Note: The keystroke will 
not work at the Windows Log In screen.) After issuing this command, you
can restart JAWS to regain speech. 

The memory dump file is saved to the Settings folder.

  Hello there;

  I believe there was a jaws keystroke,

  this will terminate JAWS and all related processes while creating a memory
  dump file for JAWS at the same time.

    The only way I know to kill jaws completely is to press insert windows f4.  
This erases jaws from the memory of the computer.  

    If you just want to quit jaws temporarily though, press insert f4 which 
will bring up the quit jaws dialog.  

    Hope this helps,

    Hello list:



    I remembered that on one post somebody mention a "kill jaws" icon for... 
well, killing jaws when it got out of control. Can somebody tell me how to 
create that same short cut? I deleted the messege and I need that short cut. I 
can't rely on NVDA and narrator getting me out of trouble when jaws attacks. 
lol. Besides, the task manager isn't that accessible with narrator and NVDA... 
well, I don't like it. Besides, when jaws goes out cold NVDA doesn't response 
that well either. Maybe NVDA is afraid of the shark.
