Re: [Bulk] Select A Graphic.

Hi Mike:

I, like you, am running XP with IE8 and Jaws+10. I don't have any knowledge for you on Windows 7 and how it behaves there. I think I do know what happened though.

It looks like these CTRL+INSERT+g, z, r, etc. commands are Jaws scripts that have been plunkd into IE. I found them by playing around with the Jaws key describer. and there's code for them in virtual.jss. So maybe someone wrote them up and just forgot or neglected to document them. Anyway, suggest to him to try it in IE. If that doesn't work, maybe you can throw him your virtual.jss and default.jkm files and see if that helps. Here's the list of files in which there's a reference to the SelectAGraphic script:


Good luck,

Hi Spence,

I am running XP, IE8, & Jaws10, 11, & 12 & the control, insert, + G, does as
advertised. But, I told someone about this keystroke who is running
Windows7 & IE9 & the keystroke started the auto graphics label function. Is
this keystroke supposed to work in IE9 as well? All input will be greatly
appreciated. Thanks much, take care.

Hi Dave:

I see your confusion. In Default.JKM, ctrl+insert+G is auto select
graphics; I see that now. Whatever auto label graphics is... But if
you're in
IE, and you're on a webpage with graphics, CTRL+INSERT+G pulls up a list
graphics you can surf to on the page, just like INSERT+F5, F6 and F7 do
forms, links, headings, etc. and just like CTRL+INSERT+Z, X, R pull up
of divisions, checkboxes, radio buttons. I can't find any of these
in any of the .JKMs.

Might've caused confusion by calling it Select A Graphic, but that's
title of the list box that's pulled up with CTRL+INSERT+G.

So just to be ultra clear, in IE, CTRL+INSERT+G creates a list box of
all the available graphic links on the page. And I'd like to be able to
re-task that to something else. But it, along with its brethren,
CTRL+INSERT+Z, X, R, Q, C, P, and O, aren't in default.jkm, or
Internet-explorer.jkm, at least not that I can see. I checked the other
logical .JKMs too and I didn't see them. But they have to be somewhere!
