Re: Disable keyboard shortcut in specific application

Jack Vanlightly

Hi Mike,

That is close, but rather than take an application specific shortcut and turn it off. I need to take a global shortcut and turnit off in one specific application. Can the keyboard manager do that? I haven't dared do anything in the keyboard manager before.

Basically I am looking into using iTunes without BlindTunes and the only thing that I cannot do quite trivially is skip forwards and backwards through a track. The iTunes shortcut is Control AT Left/Right Arrow which conflicts with Jaws HTML table navigation.
So I want to be able to tell Jaws to ignore that keyboard shortcut while in iTunes.
Granted pressing Insert 3 first allows me to use it but this makes for alot of key presses to skip an ad in a podcast.
Note that I am a BlindTunes user normally. It's a great script, I'm just looking into how to use iTunes scriptless.

Hi Jack,

I have never done this but, you can try going into the Keyboard Manager, tab
1 time into the list of applications, find the application you want to work with, tab 1 time into the list of keystrokes for that application, & I think, control + H, is the change keystroke, keystroke while in the list of keystrokes of the particular application. As I said earlier, I've never done this so, I would make notes of exactly the before & after changes in case you need to put things back to the default settings.

Take care.

Hi all,

Is there a way of disabling a Jaws keyboard shortcut in a specific
application? There is a shortcut that I want to use in a particular
application which clashes with a Jaws keyboard shortcut. There must be a
way to tell Jaws to not intercept the shortcut in Application X or Y.

Many thanks
