Re: JAWS Scripts - Are they interpreted or compiled?

Roger Newell

The script won't compile if there are syntax errors. Imagine that you
were working on a script but had to leave your computer for some
reason, but did not want to lose your work. You might be in the middle
of troubleshooting something by editing your script file, but not be
able to compile it because you might still be editing it.

to compile a jaws script, you must have the
script file loaded and you simply save the script
with any changes with ctrl plus s. to save
without compiling you use ctrl plus w. hope this helps.
