Re: Focus Button Keystroke

John ESherrer

Hi Folks
Thank you for all your help.
I wanted to find out which key had focus hoping that the Change button you
would have focus.
Control E is the correct key, but the message I get is that JAWS cannot
determine which key has focus in this dialog box.
So I can tab to the appropriate button or use Alt C for change. This take
two hands to do his and is not efficient, but faster than tabbing through
all the buttons.

If you want to activate the Change Button, press Alt c. This way, it
doesn't matter which button has focus. There are Alt-Key combinations for
the other buttons in the dialog as well. JAWS should speak them as you Tab
to them. If not, you will need to make a change in JAWS that controls what
keys are spoken.

Hi Folks
Is their a JAWS Keystroke that will tell you which Button has focus?
I have looked at the JAWS Help and found nothing.
I have JAWS 13 with W7 running 64 bit.
I am using Word 2007 with the spell check dialog, and I want to know
if the Change button has focus, now I just tab to the dhange button or
another button. I have a large document to spell check, actually I am
grammer checking, since I have a tendency to add extra spaces.
