Re: Using Waterfox

Hi Dave,
 
Windows has the sticky key mode but, Jaws has Insert key mode and how to use it is explained below:
Insert Key Mode:
Try the following to turn the Insert Key Mode on / off.  This only works in
the Settings Center Default All Applications.
1. Open the Settings Center in either of these 2 ways.
A. Press, Insert / Jaws Key + 6, on the number row above the main keyboard.
B. Press, Insert / Jaws Key + F2, to open the, Jaws Manager, arrow down,
Settings Center, & press enter.
With the Settings Center open press, control, shift , + D, to open the
Settings Center Default All Applications.
2. Arrow down to, Users, right arrow to open.
3. Arrow down to, Insert Key Mode, to check or uncheck this box.  Here's the
explanation of this option:
When selected, the INSERT key functions as a sticky key. Any key pressed
immediately after pressing the INSERT key is treated as if it were pressed
in combination with the INSERT key. This check box is cleared by default.

Take Care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hello Mike:

Unless Vispero have added a Sticky Keys function to JAWS which I have not
heard about, The Sticky Keys function you mention, is a function in Windows,
it is not a JAWS function.

Thank you for the suggestion.
