Hi, Vic. I don’t know the reasoning behind why certain keystrokes can be activated via INSERT, while others can only be activated via CAPSLOCK. However, I know INSERT does not always act like JAWS key when in laptop mode. I think that in laptop mode, INSERT acts like an extended key, while CAPSLOCK acts only through JAWS, unless pressed twice quickly.

Subject: Re: Speech on demand
You got it! I am running the laptop layout. When I use caps lock plus space and shift+s it works. That leads me to the obvious question: Why does insert+space s turn on SOD mode but insert+space shift+s not do the toggle?
Also, Vic. If you are running JAWS Version 2018 (build 1712.10 ILM), with JAWS Laptop keyboard layout, it would be CAPSLOCK plus SPACE, followed by SHIFT plus S.
It doesn’t work that way for me, though. Pressing insert-space followed by shift-s doesn’t say or do anything whether speech on demand is on or off.
Hi, Vic. INSERT plus SPACE followed by S doesn’t turn Speech on Demand on or off. What SHIFT plus SPACE followed by S does is:
If Speech on Demand is already invoked, INSERT plus SPACE followed by S will toggle between Speech on Demand and Speech Mute. If you are currently in Full Speech mode, INSERT plus SPACE followed by S will say:
Not Available In Full Speech Mode.
This doesn’t work for me. When I press insert+space and then shift+s with speech on demand mode on nothing happens. I have tried over and over again with no success. I am using Eloquence if that matters.
Insert+Space, S to toggle between “speech on demand” and “full speech”. When in Speech on Demand mode, Insert+Space, Shift+S to toggle between speech on demand and speech entirely turned off (“speech mute”, as it’s called).
What is the keystroke for toggling between speech on and either speech mute or speech on demand?
