Oops! My mistake. Try the Windows/Start key + J +Enter.

That does nothing for me.
Perhaps that is a special perkyduck command?

Try alt + J + enter. I regularly have to turn JAWS off and then back on while using the training version of Perky Duck, a software I use to produce my Literary Braille Transcriber Course lessons. So I know this works in that environment. It should work elsewhere too.

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
