Hi, Madison. You might also want to edit your default configuration file for
JAWS so that it mutes speech instead of going into Speech On Demand. To do
this,

1. Press JAWS key plus six on the numbers row.
2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D for the Default Configuration.
3. In the search box, type,

speech options

4. Arrow down to Speech Options, and press ENTER.
5. Under Speech Mode Full Speech, leave this alone.
6. Under Less Speech Options Speech On Demand closed, press SPACE to toggle
to Mute Speech.
7. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

Now, if you press JAWS key plus SPACE, followed by the letter S, it will
mute speech.
Press JAWS key plus SPACE, followed by the letter S again to return to full
speech.

No Jasmin, I only have the one version. Does this command (insert space s)
just
mute Jaws, or would it mute the speech in the video that I'm watching as
well?

Hi, Madison,
To help you better, I have a couple of questions for you. First, do you have
any
other versions of JAWS on your computer? If so, it may be that the shortcut
is
only set for the previous version. Another thing is that if you want to mute
speech, you can press Insert+Space, then the letter S. Hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Jasmine

Subject: Jaws command question

Hi all,
Today I was watching a Youtube video, and Jaws kept talking so I couldn't
hear
the people in the video very well. So I turned Jaws using insert f4.
Well after the video was finished I tried to turn Jaws on using control alt
j,
but it didn't work, my Dad had to click on Jaws. Now I know I have the
command
set, so I'm not sure why it doesn't work. Any ideas? Is there any other way
I
can turn Jaws on myself? If Jaws isn't working then my Braille display
doesn't
work either (not sure if this is normal or not) so I don't even know where I
am.
I hardly ever turn Jaws off, but I'd still like to know why the command to
turn
it on doesn't work. Running Jaws 2018. Look forward to any suggestions
anyone
can provide!! Thanks Madison
