Maybe you defined the key for this as Control Shift, by default it is also the left Alt Key and left Shift Key in Windows 7.

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.

Lee Anne

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.
