Hi,

No, it means that you were left behind in a left wing but right minded attempt at righteousness. Is that not clear? Let me try again ...

Left-leaning rights are often rightly left out of right-thinking peoples' assessments of rights that are left over from rites that are more appropriate to left-over civilisations.

Oh, I giv up ... i wish I were ambidextrous! In fact, I've give my right arm to be ambidextrous.





Take care,

Gerry Ellis

Thanks for the clarification. That would explane why I couldn't exit a program with my right hand but, could with my left hand. Having to use my left hand. Does that mean I was in my right mind? LOL.

One changes language/region the other keyboard layout within a single language.

IE, changing languages is the difference between US English, UK English, Belgian French and Colombian Spanish while keyboard layout is the difference between standard qwerty layout, standard dvorak, left hand dvorak and right hand dvorak.

Note that layouts are specific to a given language/region.

Switching to Win10. I think that was part of the problem. I was
using windows 7 commands to change the keyboard language. Control
shift instead of the alt shift, in windows 10. Oh well, we learn something new every day.

David, that says something about you, even if it doesn't make that
keyboard issue any better. For me, it's control-shift that does it. I
believe one must go and change it under language and region, but don't
quote me on that.
In windows 10, you have this handy switch that involves the spacebar.
That is so much better and it almost makes me want to switch to Sin10.
I have trouble when I use a dictionary software called WordFinder, for
I get inadvertent changes as I go and look up English-Swedish
definition or vice versa. You need the US layout as you operate the
program, the Swedish (or whatever other language) for the word you're
trying to find... And, of course, when you are in the "other-language"
layout, your regular windows hotkeys won't react like you're used to.
So, when you think you just hit control-s to save something, your
system opens Sonar or SoundForge, or whatever program you've given the
hotkey control-alt-s. Oh, aren't we glad of all these ways of wasting our time....

Well, I have 3 languages on my computer as well. Argentine Spanish,
French and English U S. The alt shift command works. We must have
strange things happen or be called strange if not, the world would be
boring. I don't know about all of you, but, my best man's sister said
to my new wife, "Being married to David, I guarantee life will never be boring."

Hi,

Now here is a funny thing ...

I have 3 keyboard languages installed; Irish, United Kingdom and
United States.

Hitting alt and shift gives me a different result from hitting control
and shift. In one particular case when I am in United States, hitting
control and shift does nothing at all.

Very strange!



Take care,

Ah, hah, the mystery is solved. Yes, hitting alt and shift, did
switch the keyboard language. I tested it while listening to your
message. Then of course, had to use the prior commands to switch it back to U S. Thanks.

I don't know if it's the same for yours, but pressing alt+shift on my
keyboard by itself switched the language whether I wanted it to or
not. I used to do that frequently when I was intending to do something
else. I don't know of a way to disable that feature, so I ended up
removing every keyboard language on the system except the one I was
using. Bing bang boom problem solved.

Subject: Re: JAWS tutorials?

Once again I fouled up the language on my keyboard. I just went into
the start menu and typed out my request for "How do I change the
language on my keyboard" Don't know if it was JAWS or the info itself.
But, it said to hold down the windows key and cycle through the
languages by continueing to hit the space bar till I heard the
language I wanted. So, if it was a JAWS tutorial, it was very helpful.
To date, I have no idea how I switched languages on the keyboard in
the first place. But, at least I know now, how to fix my screw ups.

Hi Vic,

Welcome! The only silly question is the one you don't ask. The JAWS
help topics are very helpful and this list even more so.

Good luck with learning JAWS.

Hello,

I am a new convert from the debunked Window-Eyes screen reader. I am
trying to learn JAWS as quickly as possible. I may ask some very silly questions.
I
hope you will bear with me during this process. Thanks in advance for
any help.
