activate the layered keystroke feature then press the
letter, Z. This will temporarily bypass

Route jaws to PC no longer working
Hi there, have
you sent your jobs back to factory settings, that could also
help in some ways. I know that’s a pain in the butt, but
however that might only be the only way to restore all your
JAWS settings. I hope this helps.

Here’s a thought. Switch to the laptop
keyboard layout and see if you can do it with capslock as
the JAWS key. That’ll rule out if the problem is with your
combinations work fine. When I press route jaws to pc,
nothing happens, and jaws says nothing. However, it does

It doesn’t sound crazy at all. Keyboards can

But before we go there – what happens when
you press jaws key + minus then? Does jaws announce
anything? Or is it silent? DO other jaws key combinations
work? What if you turn keyboard help on—can you use the
Finally, you tried just restarting jaws
and/or the computer?
This might sound
crazy, but test with another keyboard if you have an
extra. I had a keyboard quit working with the Escape and
numpad delete key. Different keyboard, back to working.

Using jaws key numpad minus to route jaws
to pc is no longer working.
I’m using the latest version of JAWS, and
I’m hoping that this is something I’ve messed up rather than
a bug in jaws.
Very grateful for any help with this,
