When you are at the desktop, you can use the JAWS icon, for the version you are using to open the JAWS Context Window for that version of JAWS .

If you are anywhere else in Windows, such as in a menu or in a Windows applet or, you are in a program, such as File Explorer or Outlook, etc., and you are using the JAWS Desktop Keyboard layout, use the JAWS/INSERT+J keystroke, to open the JAWS Context Window, for the version of JAWS you are using.

Likewise,If you are anywhere else in Windows, such as in a menu or in a Windows applet or, you are in a program, such as File Explorer or Outlook, etc., and you are using the JAWS Laptop Keyboard Layout, use the CTRL+SHIFT+J keystroke, to open the JAWS Context Window for the version of JAWS you are using.

Hi,


I just press Insert+j.

Another thing you can try is this: while on the desktop, press j until you get to your desired JAWS version, then press enter, pretending you want to start JAWS again. Instead of starting JAWS, either the context menu or the main window will come up.


If the context menu comes up, press cursor up twice to get to the "About..." option within the menu, then press enter.

Generally, you can use insert+1 to get into keyboard help mode in JAWS, and Insert+1 again to leave it.

With that in mind, Madison, what happens if you press Insert+1, then press insert+j while in keyboard help mode?

Use speech history to copy what it says by pressing JAWSKey+Space, followed by h. That will open up a speech history window you can navigate through and copy from using control+a, then Control+c to copy its contents.

Also, it would be very helpful if we knew the exact brand and name of the laptop in question.

Maybe you have some weird keyboard functions activated or some sort of multi media key conficuration.


Regards,

Nermin
