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.

         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.

 

         Later,

             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

             I'd like to know the answer to this question as well, but

             can't read your response.

                   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.

 

                 Pozdrawiam,
