There is a setting in, I think, “speech options” where you can switch the insert-space, s toggle between “speech on demand” and “no speech”.

I have mine set to “no speech”, since I tend to use braille 99% of the time nowadays and hardly use speech at all, but still want to be able to turn it on quickly from time to time.


I have found that some scripts, notably, ones for Skype,  break this feature. As in, they will turn speech back on, and after this, the toggle will not work at all until a JAWS restart. This is a bug of some kind, which I will probably report; I just need to figure out which scripts, exactly, are causing this. Anyway, other than that, it works pretty well.

I would like to turn off speech during a hangout meeting.

I was trying to make souch profile to activate with insert+ctrl+s but this seems not to work.


Is there a quick way to turn off speech for a time or in a specific situation?

Kind regards
