moderated Question about auto passthrough

This message came from another email list, but since it's definitely germain to JAWS, I thought I'd forward it and hope someone has the answer.

Subject: QWS List Hello, and JAWS Config for QWS

Hi All,


I’ve just subscribed to this list, so Hello! And apologies if this has already been covered, or if my question demonstrates a lamentable lack of knowledge of the subject:


I’m working through the tutorials for QWS.  I noticed that some of the keystrokes described, don’t work as expected, specifically the control-left-arrow and control-Right-arrow keys.  I assume that this is because JAWS is grabbing the keystroke.  I can pass through keys on an individual basis, but can’t remember how you define a keystroke that should always be passed through within a particular application.  I can’t find any config files on the web, specifically for JAWS and QWS, but would be interested:

  1. If anyone already has QWS configuration files, or
  2. If someone can remind me how, on a more generalised basis, you prevent JAWS from grabbing a specific keystroke.

Regards and thanks,


Tim Pennick
