But, capslock+j says absolutely nothing?

But typing the letter j obviously works.
So, either capslock+j is being used for something else, or a Jaws repair or reinstall is needed.

I think they already checked that out, as the reason we took it in was to have the tab key replaced as a piece broke off of it.

It doesn't say that when I press the capslock key, just when I accidentally
press the actual insert key (it's right beside the delete key).

A jaws repair sounds like the logical next step.
Or, uninstalling Jaws and reinstalling it might get it back to normal and then customize as needed.

But if the capslock key plus j doesn't work at all, but gives the message that
alt+windows+q is being pressed, there is something else going on completely.

Good luck

So you can do other JAWS commands with the JAWS modifier, but you can't bring up a JAWS menu, is what you're saying?

Have you ever tried a JAWS re-install?

If you are hearing alt+windows+q when pressing the insert key, you have issues that likely won't be resolved via email.
I think perhaps it is time to call Microsoft Accessibility 800-936-5900 Or try calling Freedom Scientific, I don't have their support number memorized, but their sales number is 800-444-4443.

Insert+j should never move to another icon.

I was referring specifically to insert+j then up arrow once.

Hello Richard.

I'm not sure what you mean by saying that "it doesn't work if you have jaws in the system tray". Unless something has changed recently, it does work here in this fashion. I have not had JAWS set to use its own window/not be in the system tray for many years. I also don't have JAWS 2021, though, so it's possible something has changed...

Insert+j then up arrow does not work if you have Jaws in the System tray.
But, insert+j followed by control+insert+v works in any setup.
And, control+insert+v works in any and all programs.
Twice quickly puts it in the virtual window so you can copy it by using
shift+the arrow keys depending on how much you want to copy.

Hey Madison.
A good way to get JAWS version information displayed inn a convenient little window is to go to the JAWS menu with jaws key + j, and hit up arrow once (probably, this might be version dependent I suppose, but it's usuallya t the
bottom) to "about". Hit enter and you'll get what you need.

As for outlook, I am not sure quite what it is that you want. You want to know your outlook version number and then paste it to someone? If you are getting that info with tge command JAWS commands to display the version information of an executable, this isn't displayed on screen so you can't copy and paste it as though it was a line of text placed in an edit field.
It isn't. But if you wanted you could use speech history to retrieve it.
Press insert space, then h, then up arrow til you find the text that you need, then copy and paste, and press escape.
There are usually more efficient ways to get version info. I seem to remember outlook having an 'about" screen somewhere, too, but at the moment I can't find it. Haha

Hi all,
How do I get the exact version of Jaws that I'm running? Also, when I do the keystroke to get the Outlook version I copy and paste it, but it doesn't show up in the message, but as attachments, none of which are the actual version info they just seem to be recent messages, what am I doing wrong?
Thanks Madison
