The below is not a means of telling if some thing is just a jaws command or
a windows command.  Open keyboard help press control c.  You will get a
description.  Thnis means now that a synopsis was assigned to the key threw
jaws.

Here is a quick way to find  out whether a keystroke is a windows or a jaws
command.Turn on keyboard help by pressing insert+1 and then press that key.
IN this case you will hear a description for the combination alt+shift If
you press insert+1 and then press alt+shift. If it's a windows  command such
as alt+f4 you will just hear jaws saying
alt+f4 without giving any description.
Press insert+1 again to turn off keyboard help.

Bobcat,

I just tried it and it said "no change." In any case, whatever that means, 
why would it be a Windows command? A sighted person is just reading text, 
not having it read to them, so it doesn't matter whether that text 
originated in the UK, the United States, or wherever, I shouldn't think. as
written

Is this a Jaws command or a Windows command?  Alt plus shift toggles a
setting which makes Jaws say alternatively, English Canada then English
United states.

Remember some people were talking about Jaws starting to announce English
United States?  I accidentally hit alt+shift one day and heard that
announcement.  I hit it again and it said English Canada.

I checked to be sure the language bar is off.  I even went so far as to also
turn it of in Jaws options, basic settings, windows system parameters.

I just alt tabbed from the Jaws window back to this OE window and Jaws said
English Canada.  I had toggled the setting to Canada and Jaws was telling me
that what it is set to for this window or application.  It only makes the
announcement if the language is different from the previous window.
