Once you press enter your focus will still be in

commands can be used to read each topic.

topics press the F6 key again.

I recently purchased my
first windows pc for over ten years and have
jaws 2020. I also have a Focus braille display.
First of all, is there a way
of navigating the screen using the focus
display? Switching between display and keyboard
is quite annoying, or perhaps I just need to get
used to it. Also, how do I mute the speech and
then unmute it again when necessary.
Lastly, is there a document,
or book [in brf or word] with help on how to use
jaws? I don't do well with audio and prefer a
written reference if possible.
Thank you so much for your
