moderated Re: Automatically start the screen shade with Jaws

I would try sticking it in the auto start function, this way, it should start when JAWS is started, either automatically or manually.

The code is actually very simple. The script name is ToggleScreenShade,
so I just need to call it when JFW starts.

I do not know enough about the specifics of the jaws scripting language
however here is pseudo code that may help:

Wants Jaws script is loaded
Confirm jaws has started
Enable required functionality

Thanks,abraham

I do not think this is possible.

You may need to write a script to add that functionality.

I didn’t clarify enough! What I wanted to do is start the screen

Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by F11 or Printscreen both toggle
screen curtain on and off, I also prefer F11.

For what it is worth, I'm running Jaws 2020 on Windows 10, and
the keystroke is insert+spacebar, then f11.

Well, the iBarstool has nothing to blame here, it was
too early in the day for doing 12 ounce curls!  LOL  LOL

I'll try to put in more simpley:

The screen shade setting does not appear in the Jaws
Settings Center and is only accessible through the layered
keystroke feature or, Jaws quick settings.

The layered keystroke feature is when you  hold down the
Insert key then press down the spacebar, let up on both
keys, then press a third key to perform a particular task.
In this case the layered keystroke to turn the, Screen
Shade, On or Off task is below:

Hold down the Insert key, then press down the spacebar, now
let up on both keys, and tap the, Print Screen, button.

With each press of this keystroke sequence you will hear
Jaws report either, Screen shade on or, Screenn shade off.

Since the Jaws screen shade feature isn't available in the
Settings Center, and can be only accessed by the 2 ways
mentioned above, here's the way to check its current setting
through Jaws quick settings:

BTW,  whether you're in Explorer or a program, the screen
shade setting is found in the General Options category of
Jaws quick settings.

So, when, in or on, most places of your computer press,
Insert + V, to open Jaws quick settings.

Down arrow until you hear Jaws report, General Options, and
if Jaws reports that it's closed right arrow to open.

Now continue down arrowing until you hear Jaws report,
Screen Shade, either checked or unchecked.  Pressing the
spacebar will toggle this setting on & off, checked being,
On, and unchecked being, Off.

If you make a settings change for this setting or others,
then tab to the, Okay button, press enter to save your
settings changes & close quick settings.

If this isn't plain enough, will someone please explain it
in an easier fashion?!

Okay now it's time for me and the iBarstool to become
attached at the seat, so to speak!  LOL  LOL


Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!

Actually, it is in English. It is also readable, just a
little hard. Keep in mind that Mike was writing from his
famous barstool.

Hi,

Can you please retype your response in English?

I'd like to know the answer to this question as well, but
can't read your response.

Thanks,

Jessica

 Press the,Insert + spacebar, letup then press the,
Print Screen key.

Or to do it in Jaws quick settings:

To cee if the, Screen Shade, is on or off go into the
quick settings menu with, Insert + V, or Capslock plus v
if you are using the laptop layout.

Type, shade, in the search field and down arrow 1 time.
Jaws should report if it's checked or not, and if it
isn't press the spacebar to check it then tab to, Okay,
and press enter to save / close.

Hi,

I once did it. I remember I edited some script file to
make it happen but I forgot what and how it was done.
Could someone help me in that direction? This is for my
friend who has an serious eye problem and he needs to
have the curtain on all the time..

I have searched in default.jss but that file seems to
change a lot from my last visit in it.
