Hi, Madison. Do you have the following item checked in your JAWS settings,


1. Open JAWS settings, JAWS key plus six on the numbers row.

2. Select the Default JAWS configuration file with CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D.

3. In the search window, type the words extended insert

4. Look for an option like,

Use Extended Insert not checked.‑

5. If Use Extended Insert is unchecked, check it.

6. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.


Maybe this will fix your INSERT key.

Do you have the 6 pack of keys somewhere on your keyboard with a second Insert key?  If so what happens if you press this Insert key + J?  If nothing happens, there's a setting in the Settings Center default all applications that needs to be turned on to use the second Insert key as a Jaws key.  It's under the Keyboard heading / Jaws Insert key.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I have my keyboard layout set to laptop, as that's the only way I have an insert key.

Capslock+ j is not mapped to the JAWS window in the laptop keyboard layout.

It is used for jumping to the prior word on the home row.

Madison, are you using the jAWs laptop or desktop layout?
