Hi Richard, I might be wrong here, but I don't think the Jaws shortcut has a default shortcut associated with it. Of course it's easy to do by going to the properties of the shortcut on the desktop and assigning either Alt + Control + J or, my personal preference, Control + Shift + J.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Jaws default hotkey to close Jaws is insert+f4. There is a setting that you can make it so there is no confirmation, it just goes away. Otherwise, there will be an OK to hit confirming you want to close Jaws.
The hotkey for NVDA is insert+q. That too has an option to have it close without confirmation.
Normally, the default hotkey to start Jaws is Control+alt+j though that is customizable.
NVDA defaults to Control+alt+n, but again, tha tis customizable.
You need never go to the desktop to accomplish what you want.
Software means never having to say you're finished

Subject: Seamlessly switching from JAWS to NVDA on the fly
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?
