On a standard 101-key keyboard, its right pinky on
Insert, Right thumb on Window key, Left pointer on F4.
...and I don't have overly large hands, so the
spread is easy once the keys are located.
If learning these combinations is difficult, try
applying tactile dots to the Windows and F4 keys.

Subject: Re: My problem with latest update
I usually reverse
hands, press the insert/Jaws key with my left hand and use the right hand to
press Windows + F4, after you do it a few times it becomes quite natural and
One thing is that
it can take quite long for Jaws to restart, I have seen it taking well over 30
seconds, usually I wait almost a minute and only if nothing happens I try other
stuff. Interesting enough if I minimize all applications and then type “J” to go
to the Jaws shortcut on my desktop Jaws sometimes starts up which means it
apparently sometimes crashes and completely unloads in which case the
Insert+Windows+F4 won’t work.

Hi, Shannon. This key
combination shuts down, restarts JAWS, and makes it possible to send an error
report to Freedom Scientific.
What is that key combo for. It
appears to do nothing and with the keyboard helper on it doesn’t report
that it would do anything?

Yes, I have raised this issue with VFO Technical support. They want me
to get an error report for them; however, I cannot get an error report because
my computer freezes when JAWS 18 crashes and I can do nothing except do a cold
boot. This is very frustrating, as I have been using JAWS for Windows since
I am using the most up-to-date version of Windows 10.
Have you raised this issue with VFO Technical support?
Hello everybody. I'm experiencing the same issue with JAWS
18 and Windows 10. Repairing JAWS 18 didn't resolve the issue. Don, have you
raised this issue with VFO Technical support? What version of Windows 10 are

Did you try running a JAWS repair (on version 18)? This
procedure fixed JAWS crashes I was encountering earlier this year. I’m still
experiencing crashes, but they seem to be related to very specific
Actually, I have been having this same problem with the last 4 updates. When
I am using JAWS 18 on my Windows 10 machine, it will work fine for a while;
however, JAWS suddenly crashes without notice. It always happens when I am
using Microsoft software, including Outlook 2013, Word 2013 and Internet
The problem first occurred in the early versions of JAWS 18, then it was
fixed in a few builds, then it started occurring again around January or
February. The latest update worked fine for about 2 hours, so I thought they
had it fixed again, but then it crashed.
When JAWS 18 crashes, I cannot seem to generate an error report and other
screen readers won’t work properly either, so I have to turn off my PC and
turn it on again with the on/off button.
JAWS 17 works fine all the time, so I am unloading JAWS 18 and launching
JAWS 17 until I can get this fix.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
