moderated Re: application mode


assuming the numlock is off, tap the numpad plus key twice quickly,
like this: tap tap.
tap, tap is not going to work.

Okay, I thought I pressd it twice, and that didn't work, but it was late.

As you see, I got out of it in some interesting ways, but I'll try the
double pc cursor method.

No, Jaws drops into application mode automatically if it detects a web
application, as far as I know you can’t deliberately enable it.

Hi David,

Is there a way to enable this mode manually?

Hi, again. Another example of this is the video player Comcast uses
on their Xfinity Stream <>Web app.
When you begin playing a TV program or a movie. JAWS goes into
application mode when the player window opens as it's actually more
beneficial to interact with the player in this mode than it is when
using the virtual cursor. You can, of course, use the virtual cursor
if you want to but application mode gives you some additional
functionality. As an example, pressing up arrow or down arrow raises
or lowers the volume, respectively. Pressing left arrow or right
arrow moves backward or forward through the video, when applicable.
Pressing M mutes or unmutes the audio, pressing the question mark
key generates a list of shortcut keys, etc. If you had the virtual
cursor enabled much of this functionality would not work unless you
first press the pass-through hotkey before pressing one of these
dedicated keys. In JAWS, the pass-through hotkey is insert-3, the 3
being on the row of numbers and not on the numeric keypad.

I've never heard of it until now.

That is exactly correct. Pressing the PC cursor key twice
quickly reactivates either the PC cursor or the virtual
cursor. Most likely it will be the virtual cursor assuming
this is happening on a Web page.

Had an issue today with application mode.

I was uploading a file, and when I got done with it, I
couldn't get out of application mode.

Not to mention, that it didn't tell me whether I was
uploading a resume, a reference, or a cover letter.

I used rout jaws to pc to arrow around some, then used
rooted pc to jaws to break out of it.

Also, I found that hitting enter twice, and or pulling
up the links list and selecting, move to link worked.

However, I was wondering if any of you had a better way
of working with that…
