Hi Larry and
Like you said, Larry, before installing any new
version of JAWS, I always change the shortcut of the older version to
(control alt 0) for JAWS 2020,
(control alt 9) if it is JAWS 2019,
(control alt 8) if it is JAWS 2018, and so
Then I install the updated JAWS, which then, can
(control alt j).
This numbering system works great for using older
versions of JAWS, because it is easy to remember, should I like to use an older
version for something in particular.
Blessings and All the Very Best,

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
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

Subject: Control Alt J Not Working to
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
