Re: JAWS 16 and Microsoft Lync 2013 keystrokes

Marks, Jim

Here is a link to the keystrokes for Lync 2010. I realize you're looking for 2013, but perhaps these will help. BTW, the latest update to Jaws 16 fixed my problems with Lync 2010. Now everything works as it should.

There is a list of available keystrokes contained within Lync itself, under help I think. Those are the only key commands I know of. Even using the key commands, Lync isn't the friendliest application for screen reader users.

Has anyone come across a quick reference guide to use Jaws sixteen
with Lync? My supported Jaws business partners(bps) are using Lync's
chat app for the first time and have not been using any previous chat
applications with Jaws. Whatever shortcuts/keystrokes there might be
out there would be helpful, how to open a new chat, respond, edit,
invite others and they like to be able to hear what they've typed in the chat window prior to sending.
Lync offers a breakthrough as far as my bps are concerned, so if
anyone using Jaws has had issues with chat programs in the past you
might want to check out Lync.
