That’s very interesting.

When I press insert+j I hear: JAWS Home Use.

I have Jaws in the lat+tab order.

This really isn’t a big deal, the person who asked the original question asked for the Jaws Context menu, but the answers given were for the standard Windows context menu which is probably what he meant anyway.

Insert+j to me has always been just the Jaws menu to get into some settings/options.

I think this is a good example of semantics.

If you have JAWS set to run from the system tray, Insert J will bring up the
JAWS menu. If not alt f will bring up the JAWS menu. JAWS menu is not
usually referred to as a context menu.

I will say that these are the commands for the Windows context menu that
work with or without a screen Reader

There is no actual "Jaws context menu" that I know of, just the Windows
context menu. Also gotten to with a right click of a mouse. .

"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a
Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of
asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I'd listened to what my
mother told me when I was young."
"Why, what did she tell you?"
"I don't know, I didn't listen."
