I forgot to say that is kind-of like someone driving a car in the dark and
the lights are turned off, the car is still moving but the driver cannot see
where he/she is going, lol!

I wish there was a better way to suspend Jaws.
Supervisor calls end up creating enough wasted time for me because once
Jaws gets restarted, it doesn't see the labels in the phone program,
and sometimes the other program we use for the call flows scrolls funny
so you can get to either yes or no, but not both and so forth, since it
is mostly jaws cursor work. I kind of wonder what fun Windows 10 would
throw in the mix, if work should choose to upgrade one day?

I haven't used it much, but I think a quick, safe way is JAWS,
Spacebar, S. this should toggle.

I'm still chuckling about sightlings; sounds like Mork-nannu, nannu!

Hi Michael,

First, check whether the Jaws shortcut you should have on your desktop
has a shortcut key or not. In order to do so, select it and press
<alt+enter> to display its properties.

Then, tab twice. You should hear "Shortcut key (hotkey):" and something
more. If this additional information is simply <none>, type a key on
your keyboard, (the letter j for instance). Then, tab away from this
item, and
shift+tab back to it. You should now hear
"Shortcut key (hotkey): ctrl+alt+j". "j" could be replaced with the
letter you typed.

If it's ok, tab until the Ok button and press <enter>.

In order to check if it works, try pressing it.
Jaws cannot be launched twice but it should inform you about such an
attempt, for instance, by placing you into the Jaws window or opening
the Jaws context menu, (depends on whether you choose to minimize jaws
in the taskbar on in the notification area).

Now, if it works, you can confidently type <jawskey+f4> in order to
shut jaws down. After your sighted friend gives you back your computer,
simply type the hotkey you previously defined and jaws should restart
soon.

HTH, Have a nice day. ChD

So every now and then one of my sighted friends comes over and wants to
check something out on the internet. But she's always complaining about
my eloquence's voice program running with JAWS.
So what's the fastest and best way to shut JAWS down, and the fastest
and best way to bring it back up, after she's done?

I know way back when, on a different computer, I had someone put on
some short cut keys to disable JAWS, once disabled you could just hit
those short cut keys again, and JAWS would come back up.

So how do I go about setting this up again on my current laptop?
Although, it's kind of funny listening to a sightling freak out; when
having to listen to eloquence going a thousand miles an hour while
working on your computer!
