Hi James,

It is possible to do this, but you will need to edit the JKM file by hand.

The syntax for layered keys is:

For example, if I want to announce the time by pressing SHIFT+SPACE, followed by the letter T, I would need to add a line like this:

If you require more comprehensive instructions on how to edit JKM files by hand, please get back to me.

Subject: I signing hot keys question


Some hot keys in the keyboard manager have the user pressed a modifier key plus the space bar then a letter. Is it possible for you to change these hot keys? If so, how do you assign that kind of a hockey without having jaws just recognize two buttons you push? For example  Whenever I try to assign a function to the  hot key shift plus space bar plus  the letter k, jaws only records shift and the space bar. But, I want to assign a function to shift plus the space bar than the press of a letter.   I think these  are called double layer hot keys. But I’m not sure. Thank you for anyone who can help
