This is a jaws issue and has been for quite a while.
Hit alt, shift, windows, capslock all at once and that should clear things
up for quite a while.

Yes, I thought I was accidentally hitting caps lock somehow, but maybe
that's not the case. I'm also seeing where JAWS says that I have control
and/or alt held down. I just had this happen and tried someone's idea of
hitting the left and right Alt keys repeateadly back and forth and
surprisingly, that cleared it. I then did it with the control key and,
again, it seemed to clear the issue. ItCertainly is an odd issue.

Hi there,
Yes I have the same problem now and again and find that I have to restart
the computer in order to resolve it.

I am running windows 10 and have jaws 2018 and 2019 most up-to-date version.
I have an Alienware R17 laptop. I am having a problem where Jaws is acting
like the shift key is held down. However it is physically not held down. Is
anyone else experienced this problem?
