Re: Application key Script that works


 

OK, maybe I didn't understand what this does. Will this script map Shift+F10 to the application key?

I really do not know. I should think it is the same thing -- except for being 10 times more convenient (especially on a laptop).

What does this do differently than just pressing Shift+F10?

All:

I can confirm too that the below script works, and I know this may sound duplicative of Ann's message, but I need to add something.
The old Keyboard Manager called a function called "SendApplicationsKey." When I saw that the below script merely sent the shift + f10 key, I was initially disappointed. Indeed, I was so disappointed that I nearly failed to try it. My disappointment stemmed from my experience that shift + f10 does not always duplicate the applications key or a right mouse click.
In fact, I have one very important program that DEMANDS either a right mouse click or a depression of the applications key. Shift + f10 from the keyboard does not work!!!!!!
Notwithstanding the foregoing, I tried the script. First, I went searching for the "SendApplicationsKey" function. It does not exist.
Since I had already started the script, I inserted the {shiftF10} string from the email message.
To my utter astonishment, even in the application that will not accept shift + f10 from the keyboard, it will accept this script, which appears to do nothing more than send a depression of shift + f10.
If I were a person who bets, I would have bet that this is impossible.
So, for those of you who thought the script isn't worth much because it just sends shift +f10, THINK AGAIN!!!!

This works on my computer:

1. In any application (I used Eudora) press insert+0 to open the script manager.
2. Press control+shift+d to get to the default script manager.
3. Go to the bottom of the file, so it's easy to find and delete if you decide you don't like it.).
4. Type control+e to begin a new script.
5. Give it a name, no spaces: ApplicationsKey.
6. Tab. Can be attached to key, check it.
7. Tab, and type a synopsis
8. Tab again and type a fulller description.
9. Tab, and fill in a category (I chose system) 10. Tab. Assign to hotkey. (I pressed print screen).
11. Tab. Okay.
12. Control+s to compile.

Now you have this:

Script ApplicationsKey ()



EndScript

Which won't do a thing. You need to add the command {shift+f10} and compile again.

Now it looks like this:

Script ApplicationsKey ()

{shift+f10}

EndScript
Close the script manager and test. If it doesn't work the way you want, delete it.

Good luck!

A couple of years ago, this same thread bounced around. Someone gave
excellent instructions on how to remap the useless PrintScreen key to
act as an Applications Key in JAWS, using the Keyboard Manager.
That was before JAWS 17. I tried following the instructions from Jaws
16, applying them to Jaws 17. THEY DID NOT WORK!
Now, there may be a way to do the same thing inside the operating
system or with a third party macro product; however, those of us
working in a corporate environment CANNOT make those modifications,
though we can modify JAWS scripts, which are themselves sometimes
triggered by keystrokes, and those used to be conveniently connected
with Keyboard Manager.
ALAS! Freedom Scientific appears to have killed that.
Of course, we just need to accept that as part of progress. Just think
of all the benefits we gained with Jaws 17. <Sarcastic Sneer Deleted>

Can another key be remapped to work as the applications key? How would
a person do that????
