moderated Re: JAWS Volume Adjustment
OK, I thought that you could be right about me accidently pressing B instead of V. I am using JAWS 21 on a Windows 7 machine and when I press Insert+Space then V, I get Braille and text viewer and a message saying that the Braille and text viewer is not available. If I press Insert+Space, then B, I get nothing. I guess that my system is just weird.

You need press v as in Victor after JAWS key and space. You must have pressed b as in beta to get the Braille text viewer.

Here is the full explanation from the Jaws What’s new under help:
JAWS now offers a set of layered keystrokes for quickly adjusting volume. To access this layer, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by V. Next, press J to control the volume of JAWS speech or S to control the main system volume. After pressing J or S, use the ARROW keys to raise or lower the volume in small increments, or PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN to raise or lower the volume in larger increments. Press ESC to exit the layer when finished.
Note: When adjusting volume with the ARROW keys or PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN, the lowest level that can be set is 10 percent.

I just tried this again here, and it worked.
Hit the insert or Jaws key on the numberpad and the space immediately after that. Then follow this by the letters V and J.
You can adjust the volume using the up and down arrow keys from there.
This turns on the Braille and text viewer on my system.
Try insert space followed by the letters V and J.
I just heard about this layered keystroke the other day.
I Know that you can adjust the JAWS speed on the fly, with alt+ctrl+page up and down but is there a way to adjust the volume on the fly please?
