I’m with Mike, that would be a total pain.

And like Mike, I needed the reminder to know what the issue was.

There are too many emails on this list to keep track without the context being included.


I’m glad they are paying attention.


With Jaws 2019 and 2020, none of my standard desktop shortcuts that I had made would work.  I even had Eric Damery remote in to see the issue and they never really got it resolved.  But, for some reason, it is resolved now in Jaws 2021.  That too was a case of only a few people had the issue.  I hope your issue gets resolved sooner.

Thank you for the reminder.  That would be a total pain in the a** if you needed to access the Jaws context menu right after startup.  Thanks again.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi Mike,


Sorry, it was the original topic.

When jaws starts up, you cannot get at the menus.

You have to unload and reload it.

When jaws is set to start at the logon screen and to start for this user, insert+j or any other key is not available to get at the menus.

When you unload and reload it, it works just fine.

When I started the topic, I had a huge rant about it!!

You will see it from the start.

It doesn’t happen to everyone, in fact, I have only found two other people that it happens to.

Nevertheless, it is a bug, and should be fixed, given the amount of money we pay for the product.

As you can see from my previous post, this has been confirmed by Vispero.


Regards and stay safe,

It would be nice to know what problem is being talked about.  Refresher please?

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

you will see below, that after two versions of jaws, (2020 and 2021), vispero has eventually admitted, that this problem in fact, does exist.
apparently, they are looking into it.

below is the email i got from Cory jackson at vispero, after poking and prodding forever.

the squeaking wheel always gets the grease.



email below:

Hello Patrick,
I find what you have discovered about this issue very intresting.
Would it be possible for you to run the technical support tool under the Jaws help menu in order to send us a report so that we can look in to this further?
This is not the first time I have seen the issue. I actually experience it myself.
