Well, perhaps I’m wrong to do so, however, I have a wireless desktop keyboard connected to my laptop.  Thus set JAWS to desktop mode.

LOL

I always refer to the Jaws key as the insert key.

I could see where one could mix up insert with enter,

after all, when you enter, you are affectively inserting something to the computer.

But when some folks say Jaws, they mean insert, and caps lock if Jaws is in laptop layout.

Please forgive this silly question, but when referring to the insert key, do you all mean the JAWS key or the Enter Key? I’m digging through my memory and can’t remember.

 

Thanks.

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.

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?
