Check to see if there is a desktop shortcut. This is what allows you to create a hotkey. You can do this yourself by going into the properties of the shortcut (press alt-enter or use the context menu).

Great. I am able to use 3 out of the 4 that Richard mentioned. Just not control+alt+j to turn jaws on.

Screenreader-key plus f4 for jaws. Screenreader key + q for nvda. By
default you have to press enter in both programmes after executing the
keystroke to confirm that you want to quit the screen-reader. I know
you can change this in NVDA; not sure about JAWS (someone above seemed
to suggest you could,
though)

Sorry. What are their shutdown and loading hotkeys? I am not aware of
these.

Hi.

As these programmes are not designed to work together, there's no
toggle or anything, if that’s' what you're after.
But why are you going to the desktop? That does seem like an
unnecessary step.
Both programmes have a keystroke that is meant to unload them.
I suppose if you really wanted you could make some kind of script to
unload one and load the other. Then maybe you could put it on the
desktop and set up a hotkey for it. But it seems like more trouble
than it's worth when all you have to do is hit a couple of keystrokes.

Hi,

I sometimes switch over to NVDA from JAWS, in order to determine how
it deals with something that jaws is struggling with. But the process
to do so is slightly cumbersome. It requires going to desktop,
turning off jaws, turning on nvda and then going back to where I was.

Is there a way to switch on the fly? Or at least to turn JAWS and
NVDA on and off?


Warmly,
Rahul
