Re: JAWS command for "SaySysTray" ...

jaws+f11 gives a dialog with the tray items in a list, along with
buttons that allow a left single click, left double click or right
single click. win+t actually puts focus in the tray area and you have
to use regular jaws keys to do clicks.

And jaws 17 did not change what occurs for me in any appreciable way.

I looked at my key bindings and see that Say System Tray is not bound.

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.

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

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"!
