Well, I did not think I wold ever use the windows+insert+F4 but JAWS got all
wound up in reading an email and, by golly, the Kill Jaws keystrokes did
stop it - thank God.

See, one never gets too old to learn something. (LOL)

I notice that after using insert windows f4 to dump JAWS it will launch
again much faster than if using the 'jfwkill.exe' to dump it.

 

Makes me think that one method cleans out memory more efficiently than the
other.

 

However I'll continue to use the desktop shortcut since it's a lot easier to
do on my keyboard, and I do (unfortunately) use it a lot.

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. 

 

INSERT+WINDOWS Key+F4
 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,

 

insert+windows-key+f4,

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,

Harmony.

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.
