Re: alt and control key seem to be stuck


you have been lucky then because as I mentioned earlier, this problem has been around quite awhile! LOL!
I had said since 1998, but it may have been since 1999. can't remember if windows ME started or windows XP but way back then.

multiple times and after a short time the problem comes back.

hmmm, the sticking of alt and ctrl keys has been around for a very long
time, lol! pressing both ctrl keys and or alt keys several times quickly
will unstick them most of the time. I can remember having the problem way
back to 1998 if not earlier.

I've had this reoccurring, intermittent issue from version 15. I
reported it but I couldn't repeat the problem for the technical support
person. so, I kind of figure a fix out. I would hold the control and
alt key at the same time and tap the escape key a few times and that
seems to work about 95% of the time.

This is something I have seen with computers since 2003. You can either
do what you did, and unload JAWS, or simply press both ALT keys
sequentially. That usually unsticks them.

I'm using windows10 and jaws2018. Suddenly either the alt or control
key is stated when pressing enter, any of the arrow keys and so on.
If I unload Jaws and reload it goes away. What could be causing this to
suddenly occur?
