Does she have other versions of JAWS on her PC that might be sharing that shortcut.

It has happened to me.

I had to check each version to see what the shortcut key was.

Sometimes you have to change it in older versions that might be on the computer in order for the version you are using to work properly.

Subject: Control Alt J Not Working to Open JAWS


Hi all,


I am working with a student who, when she hits Control Alt J to open JAWS, nothing happens. Same thing with hitting Control Alt N to open NVDA. I know that it is set correctly in JAWS shortcut Properties and she has admin privileges, so that is not the problem. Any idea what the problem might be? Does it have anything to do with updating drivers or something like that? If so, what do you do?


Any assistance is appreciated.
