Hi, another up side of using the insert + space S command means your braille
display will still work.

Also your braille display won't work if your not running Jaws because it is
part of Jaws that runs the braille display.

Another option to turn it back on from anywhere press windows key + M, J
then enter. This works provided you only have one item on your desktop that
starts with the letter J.

Hope this helps.

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!

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
