Re: accessing jaws homepage
Why not go through the Jaws Settings Centre. Press Control+6 on the number row, this will open the settings centre for whichever program you are in. If you want the changed to affect the default settings, press Control+Shift+D.
Now type “punctuation” into the search box, you actually only have to type the first 4 or 5 letters, tab over into the list of search results and arrow down to where it says “Punctuation Level” then press the spacebar until you get to what you want.

Subject: Re: accessing jaws homepage
My computer is totally messed up. We have to replace it. I’m trying to get Jaws to announce all punctuation and can’t seem to get it right. As one of the listers told me I’m pressing insert V and arrowing down to punctuation. The punctuations options aren’t there and I can’t get jaws to announce my punctuation. I’m an author and I find that announcing punctuation makes my editing easier. Anyways that’s just one example of my computer woes. Thanks for your help. Judith
Another option is to select the JAWS icon from your desktop (if you have one) by pressing spacebar (don’t open it), press your applications key and select “pin to taskbar); at this point you should be able to alt-tab to JAWS as well. I always use insert J so I do not understand why yours is not working properly.
Hope this helps!

Wat you call the JAWS Home Page, is in fact, the JAWS window of JAWS on your computer.
So, when you press, INSERT+J, from anywhere within Windows or any program, focus should be given to the JAWS window of the version of JFW you are using. When you use this command, JAWS should say:
JAWS context Menu, Options submenu
Home pages, are generally referred too as the initial page of a web site.
