so how do I know what are the keystrokes/hot keys for that particular

for example, if you using winamp, you can get the list of hotkeys for the 
program by pressing "JawsKey+h" within that program.

and of course, what are the functions related to each key?

difficult to list out all the function, because different program have 
different set of keys. again, try to get the list of 
keystroke by pressing "JawsKey+h" within that program.

hope this helps.

Warmest Regards,
