Re: Keystrokes not getting recorded correctly


Bissett, Tom <tom.bissett@...>
 

In win 8.1 I find the control shift keys changes the language. In my case there is only 2 languages American English and Canadian French.

Hi Rahul,

You can also press Alt + Shift to cycle through whatever languages are set up.

Hello,
Try control panel,
Region link,
Now, go to home location,
Make the change there.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Mike. Where can I go to figure out if this is the issue and change the setting if need be?

Best,
Rahul

It almost sounds like some setting for the keyboard set up is in
German? Or something like that?
Those two examples are of the German language?

I know this doesn't help and hopefully someone with more knowledge
will respond.

Hi All,

I am using JAWS 16 with Windows 8.1. On a new laptop that I was
recently given at work, I have been facing the following problem.
When I press keys that represent symbols on the keyboard, JAWS speaks
out a completely different name for the key than the one I entered.
For instance, if I press shift plus apostrophe for the quotation mark,
JAWS will read that as 'acute accent'.
Even if I press escape and get out of that edit field and try reading
its content, what JAWS speaks out is often different from what I typed.

While I am able to type what I want to after a couple of tries, this
really slows up the process. Further, JAWS also speaks out some
letters with accent or umlaut even when I simply type the letters.
What can I do to fix these issues? Thanks very much.

Best,
Rahul
