Re: JAWS command for "SaySysTray" ...

Insert F11 gives me Network 3 Internet Access (one of two, it says) and
Speakers 54 percent, but if I do Windows B, I get a lot of information.

Bye for now,

I don't have this problem with Jaws 17. Insert-F11 works as it always
has. Sounds like you either need to perform a Jaws Repair or something
else is going on with your system.

HI ALL, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Among some of the more bothersome differences between JAWS 16 and JAWS 17
is the following irony:

Although I have set "SaySysTray", in JAWS 17 - as I had it set in JAWS
16, to: "ins/JAWSKey+F11", this command will not work. It just "sits
there"!

Farther down the JAWS 17 list of JAWS Keyboard commands is:
"ViewSysTrayItems", and this is set to: "control+shift+F11". However,
this simply displays a list of what's on the SysTray; but, you cannot
take any action on the listed SysTray items. Whereas, with the
"SaySysTray" command, you could "do something" with the items on the
SysTray, e.g. open the "context menu" to "safely remove hardware", access
network settings, etc.

Suggestions, as to how to get this function to work, will be gratefully
welcomed. Thank you.

P.S.: When I can as clearly identify/describe other "bothersome" JAWS
17 issues, "I'll be back"!
