Hello FS Staff and Others:

I have a suggestion for a future release of JFW.  Most of us using JFW
depend on it in order to access anything on the computer, and we also
use it through the sound card.  Sometimes, if the sound card gets muted
which does happen, we lose speech and all other sounds as well.  I'd
like to see Freedom Scientific include a keystroke and appropriate
script in the default.jss file  that when pressed would check to see if
the Mute All check box in Volume Control is checked when a user has no
sound, and if it is, uncheck it.
