The key strokes described are computer ones, not JAWS.

Does this keystroke work with all versions of JAWS?

Dave, it's shift-F8. I've never had occasion to use it, but this is how I
understand it works:

1. Press shift-F8.

2. Arrow through the choices. To make one or more selections, press
spacebar.

3. Exit by pressing shift-F8 again.

Someone jump in and help me here. Isn't there a keystroke involving F8
that
freezes the combo box to allow arrowing without having the screen
dynamically change with each selection?

Hi,

The trouble is I cant see what I am selecting, as soon as I use the arrow
keys
it disappears to the next tab before I can see what I have selected.

Hi Marion,

After you have made your selection in a combobox, you can also press the
PC
cursor key to close a combobox. Take care.

Try this. When entering the combo box, press enter, then alt-down arrow.
That should fix the choices in place so that you can arrow up and down
without losing them. To exit, press alt-up arrow at your selection.

Hi all,



I am running Windows XP. Can anyone help with a problem I'm having using
the Combo box in the speech setting for selecting the default Sappie5
voice.
The box only displays the current selected voice, in my case the fifth of
a
list of eight, if I use the up and down arrows to change the selection,
it's hit and miss to guess which one I land on until I tab back to the
beginning and start again. I run other programmes that use an identical
box
without this problem, am I doing something wrong?



Marion
