Here’s a non-techy understanding. You’re probably familiar with the F5 refresh process. The JAWS insert-escape command refreshes a screen in the sense that JAWS catches up with what is displayed on the screen. Often when JAWS can’t find something on a webpage that you’d expect to find there, insert-escape will enable JAWS to find it. I use the command many times daily.

Subject: Insert + Escape, when to use it?


I was just introduced to Insert + Escape.  This does the following:

Repaints all currently displayed items on the screen.

However, I don't understand the sort of scenarios where I would use this. Can someone describe them?
