I often need to turn this off. Probably because I clear my cookies frequently. Google Instant keeps turning forms mode off as I'm typing even though I have Jaws forms mode set to manual. Jaws 11. Haven't tried with 12.

Re: [Bulk] [hot key detective was Bulk] Transferring AltControl Jshortcut fromJaws 11toJaws12

Robert Logue <bobcat11@...>
 

Version I have of Hotkey Detective is not exactly free.
Read this:
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,5082,00.asp

There appear to be free versions and alternatives when I Google Hotkey Detective. Don't know how they compare as far as screen reader accessibility or security. Don't know how it works with Windows 7.

Bob

BTW: For a new topic; screen reader users click here to turn off Google instant! This is a pain when I clear my cookies frequently.

Gerald:

When I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro on my computer and installed
JAWS 9, the JAWS installation program did not, I repeat, did not,
assign
CTRL+ALT+J or, any other shortcut key combination to JAWS 9.

Likewise, when I installed JAWS 10, 11, and 12, none of the
installation programs for any of those versions did not, again I
repeat, did not, assign any shortcut key.

Finally, before posting my response to your last posting, I called FS
Tech Support to clarify this point.

The Tech Support Representative, when I ask them if JAWS assigns a
shortcut key automatically during the installation process or not, said
that the JAWS

installation program does not assign any shortcut key to the newly
installed

version of JAWS. They went on to say that JAWS might delete an
assigned shortcut key. when you use the Repair JAWS function.

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version
installed on your

computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key
Alt-Control-J when it
was originally installed. Unless you delete this "hidden" hot
key, it
will always launch JAWS 11, even if you create the user-defined
hot key
Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a rule, hot keys automatically
assigned by
an application take precedence over hot keys defined by the
user. You can

use Hot Key Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is
application assigned or user assigned. When I installed the
demo version
of JAWS 10, Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically
when I
originally installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to
JAWS 10. In
order to reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default
version of
JAWS, I had to use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J
from JAWS 10
and then use the Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a
user-assigned hot key.

Karen:

Yesterday, if you remember, I assigned CTRL+ALT+J to JAWS 10
first and
then JAWS 11. I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed the
shortcut key
combination to see which version of JAWS Windows would
launch. In that
instance, JAWS 11 was launched over JAWS 10.

Following your comments in your reply, I reversed the actions
of my
experiment, to see whether Windows reversed its action, that
is, launch
JAWS 10 over JAWS11.

I first deleted the CTRL+ALT+J shortcut key combination for
JAWS 10 and
JAWS 11.

I then assigned the shortcut key to JAWS 11 first and did the
same with
JAWS 10.

I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed CTRL+ALT+J and waited to
see which
version of JAWS would be loaded.

Well, surprise, surprise, Windows did reverse its action and
launched
JAWS 10 over JAWS 11.

It appears that if you assign the same shortcut key to more
than one
application, Windows will launch the last program to which you
assigned
the shortcut key combination, that is, the application which
has the
latest updated date and time stamps.

From what I can tell, the JAWS installation does not

I was using JAWS 10 at the time. As an experiment, I assigned

complain that I
had assigned the short cut to two applications. I unloaded
JAWS 10 and

press CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which version of JAWS

loaded. Well, in my example, JAWS 11 was loaded.

It would help, if Windows allowed only one occurrence of a
short cut
key combination to be allowed to launch a program. So, if
you tried to

assign a short cut combination that was already assigned to
a program
to another program, Windows would tell you that this was the
case and
give you another opportunity to choose another short cut
combination
for the other program.

Mike,

Not quite.

Checking the "Start JAWS automatically" just ensure that
JAWS will
start up
on boot of the computer.

When installing a new version (say from 11 to 12) a
shortcut will be
added
to the desktop with the version number (e.g. JAWS 12) and
it may or
may not
have the Ctrl+alt+J keystroke assigned.

If you have more than one major version of JAWS (9, 10, 11,
12) you
could
end up with a desktop shortcut for each, and usually the
first one
with the
hotkey.

Users like Tom need to edit the shortcut preferences for
the old
version and
the new to ensure that only one has the hotkey assigned.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J,
keystroke. That
is the
default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws. What
you need to

do is
go to the Jaws12 context menu / options / basics and check
the box to
have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any
version of
Jaws,
tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the shortcut
keystroke.

Hope
this helps. Take care.

What is the best way to transfer the Alt Control J

I seem to recall having a problem with this once before in

and can't remember how to resolve it.

All I remember is that I had great difficulty transferring
the

over
to the new version of Jaws from the earlier version.

I would have thought that the "merge utilities" function

care of this, but it didn't in my earlier upgrade efforts.

Thanks for putting up with all my questions lately.

Subject: [Bulk] Optimizing Display/Graphics Settings For Windows 7


Hello, everybody.

Not long after upgrading my laptop to Windows 7, I started
experiencing accessibility problems when I attempted to install and
use the latest version (8.3) of the Applian Replay A/V multimedia
stream capture product. As a result, I've begun to wonder what the
optimal display settings are for Windows 7 if one is running JAWS 11
or above. I've noticed that the various display options I can set as
a user are much more refined in Windows 7, with not all of them being
grouped in the same menu or part of the Control Panel as what I
remember from Windows XP. For example, there is even a setting for
whether I want the screen to be viewed in Landscape mode or Portrait
mode--(mine was set to Landscape by default, surprisingly enough). So
my main question is whether FS has published a comprehensive training
guide to optimization of visual settings specifically for the Windows
7 OS.

For anyone with particular knowledge about the Applian Capture Suite:
My disappointment started when I discovered that much of Replay A/V
now
appears to be inaccessible to me--as in when I attempt to find and
select a specific Internet radio station or to order up a customized
recording for a later time. The only way I've found to use this
program even partially is through utilizing the JAWS Cursor; but even
with this method I can't effectively search for a radio or TV station,
nor can I set the start and stop time for an intended recording. In
the past I've never had to use any kind of JAWS scripts for this
program, nor have I seen that any were ever written. I never had to
use the JAWS Cursor--just the application cursor in conjunction with
Tab and Arrow keys. The Media Guide used to look exactly like a Web
browser screen, and I read it easily in XP using the Virtual PC Cursor
just as I would read a Webpage using Internet Explorer 8.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Kind regards,

-Kane

Re: [hot key detective was Bulk] Transferring Alt Control J shortcut fromJaws 11toJaws12

The funny part is that typing a request is probably longer than typing "hotkey detective" into google, hitting H a couple times to get to the search results, etc.


Optimizing Display/Graphics Settings For Windows 7

Kane Brolin
 

Hello, everybody.

Not long after upgrading my laptop to Windows 7, I started
experiencing accessibility problems when I attempted to install and
use the latest version (8.3) of the Applian Replay A/V multimedia
stream capture product. As a result, I've begun to wonder what the
optimal display settings are for Windows 7 if one is running JAWS 11
or above. I've noticed that the various display options I can set as
a user are much more refined in Windows 7, with not all of them being
grouped in the same menu or part of the Control Panel as what I
remember from Windows XP. For example, there is even a setting for
whether I want the screen to be viewed in Landscape mode or Portrait
mode--(mine was set to Landscape by default, surprisingly enough). So
my main question is whether FS has published a comprehensive training
guide to optimization of visual settings specifically for the Windows
7 OS.

For anyone with particular knowledge about the Applian Capture Suite:
My disappointment started when I discovered that much of Replay A/V
now
appears to be inaccessible to me--as in when I attempt to find and
select a specific Internet radio station or to order up a customized
recording for a later time. The only way I've found to use this
program even partially is through utilizing the JAWS Cursor; but even
with this method I can't effectively search for a radio or TV station,
nor can I set the start and stop time for an intended recording. In
the past I've never had to use any kind of JAWS scripts for this
program, nor have I seen that any were ever written. I never had to
use the JAWS Cursor--just the application cursor in conjunction with
Tab and Arrow keys. The Media Guide used to look exactly like a Web
browser screen, and I read it easily in XP using the Virtual PC Cursor
just as I would read a Webpage using Internet Explorer 8.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Kind regards,

-Kane

Hi, folks.

I have read some discussion about the need to determine whether a windows 7 machine is either 32-bit or 64-bit prior to actually installing Jaws.

I have been told that you must select either the 32-bit or 64-bit Jaws package before conducting the installation process.

Is this true?

If so, how do you make that selection from the Jaws 12 installation CD?

Thunderbird + JAWS 12 help needed

Deddajay <deddajay@...>
 

Hello

This is my first post to this list, so please bear with me as I'm not sure if this is a Jaws problem or a Thunderbird issue.

I am a sighted user trying to learn Jaws in order to help my blind husband. We have just migrated him to using Windows 7, Jaws 12 and Thunderbird. He's only been using Jaws for a few months, so it is a steep learning curve for both of us.

We are getting confused regarding the different cursors and how they work. Using Virtual PC cursor, emails are opened and read fine with a brief heading and then into the main body of the email, but the navigation short cut keys - P, N, B and F don't work. Using PC cursor, the navigation keys work fine, but Jaws announces the title of each individual email along the lines of "mailbox: ///name/users/name/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/profiles/ etc etc. " before getting to the message. This gets a bit tiresome when there's a full inbox to go through.

Could someone please give me some pointers as to what settings I should be using so that the title bar is not read each time and the PC cursor can be used for navigation? At the moment we are using the Virtual PC cursor, which means having to open and close each individual email when moving through a list.

I'd be grateful for any help, including advice if this has been posted to the wrong list.

Thanks
Deddajay

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version
installed on your

computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key
Alt-Control-J when it
was originally installed. Unless you delete this "hidden" hot
key, it
will always launch JAWS 11, even if you create the user-defined
hot key
Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a rule, hot keys automatically
assigned by
an application take precedence over hot keys defined by the
user. You can

use Hot Key Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is
application assigned or user assigned. When I installed the
demo version
of JAWS 10, Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically
when I
originally installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to
JAWS 10. In
order to reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default
version of
JAWS, I had to use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J
from JAWS 10
and then use the Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a
user-assigned hot key.

Yesterday, if you remember, I assigned CTRL+ALT+J to JAWS 10
first and

shortcut key
combination to see which version of JAWS Windows would
launch. In that

Following your comments in your reply, I reversed the actions
of my

I first deleted the CTRL+ALT+J shortcut key combination for

I then assigned the shortcut key to JAWS 11 first and did the

I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed CTRL+ALT+J and waited to
see which

Well, surprise, surprise, Windows did reverse its action and
launched
JAWS 10 over JAWS 11.

It appears that if you assign the same shortcut key to more
than one
application, Windows will launch the last program to which you
assigned
the shortcut key combination, that is, the application which
has the
latest updated date and time stamps.

From what I can tell, the JAWS installation does not

I was using JAWS 10 at the time. As an experiment, I assigned

It would help, if Windows allowed only one occurrence of a
short cut
key combination to be allowed to launch a program. So, if
you tried to

assign a short cut combination that was already assigned to
a program
to another program, Windows would tell you that this was the
case and
give you another opportunity to choose another short cut
combination
for the other program.

Mike,

Not quite.

Checking the "Start JAWS automatically" just ensure that
JAWS will
start up
on boot of the computer.

When installing a new version (say from 11 to 12) a
shortcut will be
added
to the desktop with the version number (e.g. JAWS 12) and
it may or
may not
have the Ctrl+alt+J keystroke assigned.

If you have more than one major version of JAWS (9, 10, 11,
12) you
could
end up with a desktop shortcut for each, and usually the
first one
with the
hotkey.

Users like Tom need to edit the shortcut preferences for
the old
version and
the new to ensure that only one has the hotkey assigned.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J,
keystroke. That
is the
default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws. What
you need to

do is
go to the Jaws12 context menu / options / basics and check
the box to
have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any
version of
Jaws,
tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the shortcut
keystroke.

Hope
this helps. Take care.

Hi, again.

I just thought of one more question here.

What is the best way to transfer the Alt Control J
shortcut to Jaws
12
from
Jaws 11, when doing the upgrade process?

I seem to recall having a problem with this once before in
earlier
upgrades,
and can't remember how to resolve it.

All I remember is that I had great difficulty transferring
the
shortcut
over
to the new version of Jaws from the earlier version.

I would have thought that the "merge utilities" function
would have
taken
care of this, but it didn't in my earlier upgrade efforts.

Thanks for putting up with all my questions lately.

from
Jaws 11, when doing the upgrade process?

I seem to recall having a problem with this once before in
earlier
upgrades,
and can't remember how to resolve it.

All I remember is that I had great difficulty transferring
the
shortcut
over
to the new version of Jaws from the earlier version.

I would have thought that the "merge utilities" function
would have
taken
care of this, but it didn't in my earlier upgrade efforts.

Thanks for putting up with all my questions lately.

Hi Karen,
The old saying is that "if it ain't broke then don't fix it?. This sure
applies when it comes to FS.
If your current release of JAWS works for you then wait until bugs are known
in the newest release.
I concur with some of the comments about JAWS 13, new features would be nice
but I sure wish they would fix some of the known bugs in 12 such as Excel
and Access.
Also, another old saying is the "KISS" principle (Keep it simple stupid)
which FS might want to consider as a development stratigy.
Kinda like Open Book, much too many "gizmos" to accomplish what used to be a
simple task which was scan the document and translate it into a text or Word
file so one could read and edit it.
Oh well, JMO, Cy

Hello, everyone.

In a recent post, I believe Adrian said the following:

"Many listers have reported flaws in JAWS 12,
possibly because it is more directed to Windows 7 than XP. ... I still
use
XP Pro,
and the warnings on this list have convinced me to stay with JAWS 11,
even
though my SMA entitles me to JAWS 12."

The timing for this comment couldn't have been better in my case.

Although this is likely to change soon as my University switches us all
completely over to Windows 7, my desktop at work is still an XP machine,
and
still has Jaws 11. The back-up PC I have at home is an XP machine, and
that
too has Jaws 11.

So, is the collective wisdom of the group to keep things as they are now
on
the XP machines, rather than installing Jaws 12 which seems to be geared
more to Windows 7?

If this is true, you guys have just saved me some head-aches with my
remaining XP computers, and I thank you sincerely for that.

I'll save my headaches for installing Jaws 12 on the new Windows 7 laptop
the University will give me this week. (smile)

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version installed on your
computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key Alt-Control-J when it
was originally installed. Unless you delete this "hidden" hot key, it
will always launch JAWS 11, even if you create the user-defined hot key
Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a rule, hot keys automatically assigned by
an application take precedence over hot keys defined by the user. You can
use Hot Key Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is
application assigned or user assigned. When I installed the demo version
of JAWS 10, Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically when I
originally installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to JAWS 10. In
order to reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default version of
JAWS, I had to use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J from JAWS 10
and then use the Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a
user-assigned hot key.

I was using JAWS 10 at the time. As an experiment, I assigned

It would help, if Windows allowed only one occurrence of a short cut
key combination to be allowed to launch a program. So, if you tried to
assign a short cut combination that was already assigned to a program
to another program, Windows would tell you that this was the case and
give you another opportunity to choose another short cut combination
for the other program.

Mike,

Not quite.

Checking the "Start JAWS automatically" just ensure that JAWS will
start up
on boot of the computer.

When installing a new version (say from 11 to 12) a shortcut will be
added
to the desktop with the version number (e.g. JAWS 12) and it may or
may not
have the Ctrl+alt+J keystroke assigned.

If you have more than one major version of JAWS (9, 10, 11, 12) you
could
end up with a desktop shortcut for each, and usually the first one
with the
hotkey.

Users like Tom need to edit the shortcut preferences for the old
version and
the new to ensure that only one has the hotkey assigned.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J, keystroke. That
is the
default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws. What you need to
do is
go to the Jaws12 context menu / options / basics and check the box to
have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any version of
Jaws,
tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the shortcut keystroke.
Hope
this helps. Take care.

I believe Mostafa Al'Mahdy harvested my email address from this or

ignore my public and private requests to not be mailed any more of
his political rantings, I have reported him to Gmail. Those of you
receiving similar mail may wish to do likewise.
The form at this URL requests message headers, gmail user id of the

Then how do you explain the fact that my version of JAWS 9 had the hot key
of Alt-Control-J when it was originally installed? I did not assign this
hot key myself, and Hot Key Detective confirmed that it was not
user-assigned. Hot Key Detective designates user-defined hot keys as
"personal" and system or program-assigned hot keys as "common".
Alt-Control-J was designated as "common", which means that it was not
user-assigned. So where did it come from? And how do you explain the
fact that When Open Book 7 was installed, it was assigned the hot key
Alt-Control-O? Again, I didn't assign it myself.

Mike,

Not quite.

Checking the "Start JAWS automatically" just ensure that JAWS will
start up
on boot of the computer.

When installing a new version (say from 11 to 12) a shortcut will be
added
to the desktop with the version number (e.g. JAWS 12) and it may or
may not
have the Ctrl+alt+J keystroke assigned.

If you have more than one major version of JAWS (9, 10, 11, 12) you
could
end up with a desktop shortcut for each, and usually the first one
with the
hotkey.

Users like Tom need to edit the shortcut preferences for the old
version and
the new to ensure that only one has the hotkey assigned.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J, keystroke. That
is the
default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws. What you need
to do is
go to the Jaws12 context menu / options / basics and check the box
to have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any version of
Jaws,
tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the shortcut
keystroke. Hope
this helps. Take care.

Hi, again.

I just thought of one more question here.

What is the best way to transfer the Alt Control J shortcut to Jaws
12
from
Jaws 11, when doing the upgrade process?

I seem to recall having a problem with this once before in earlier
upgrades,
and can't remember how to resolve it.

All I remember is that I had great difficulty transferring the
shortcut
over
to the new version of Jaws from the earlier version.

I would have thought that the "merge utilities" function would have
taken
care of this, but it didn't in my earlier upgrade efforts.

Thanks for putting up with all my questions lately.

Re: [Bulk] Transferring Alt Control J shortcut fromJaws 11toJaws12

Dave Durber
 

Gerald:

What else can I say, except to repeat what I wrote in my previous posting, according to FS Tech Support, JAWS does not assign a shortcut key during the installation of any version of JAWS. If you have a problem with that statement, then you should take it up with the FS Technical Support Department.

Now, as far as I am concerned, this thread has reached the end of the road. I have nothing else to say or add on this thread. This is my last posting on this thread.

Then how do you explain the fact that my version of JAWS 9 had the hot key of Alt-Control-J when it was originally installed? I did not assign this hot key myself, and Hot Key Detective confirmed that it was not user-assigned. Hot Key Detective designates user-defined hot keys as "personal" and system or program-assigned hot keys as "common". Alt-Control-J was designated as "common", which means that it was not user-assigned. So where did it come from? And how do you explain the fact that When Open Book 7 was installed, it was assigned the hot key Alt-Control-O? Again, I didn't assign it myself.

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version installed on your computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key Alt-Control-J when it was originally installed. Unless you delete this "hidden" hot key, it will always launch JAWS 11, even if you create the user-defined hot key Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a rule, hot keys automatically assigned by an application take precedence over hot keys defined by the user. You can use Hot Key Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is application assigned or user assigned. When I installed the demo version of JAWS 10, Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically when I originally installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to JAWS 10. In order to reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default version of JAWS, I had to use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J from JAWS 10 and then use the Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a user-assigned hot key.

Yesterday, if you remember, I assigned CTRL+ALT+J to JAWS 10 first and then JAWS 11. I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed the shortcut key combination to see which version of JAWS Windows would launch. In that instance, JAWS 11 was launched over JAWS 10.

Following your comments in your reply, I reversed the actions of my experiment, to see whether Windows reversed its action, that is, launch JAWS 10 over JAWS11.

I first deleted the CTRL+ALT+J shortcut key combination for JAWS 10 and JAWS 11.

I then assigned the shortcut key to JAWS 11 first and did the same with JAWS 10.

I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which version of JAWS would be loaded.

Well, surprise, surprise, Windows did reverse its action and launched JAWS 10 over JAWS 11.

It appears that if you assign the same shortcut key to more than one application, Windows will launch the last program to which you assigned the shortcut key combination, that is, the application which has the latest updated date and time stamps.

I was using JAWS 10 at the time. As an experiment, I assigned CTRL+ALT+J, to both JAWS 10 and 11. Windows did not complain that I had assigned the short cut to two applications. I unloaded JAWS 10 and press CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which version of JAWS would be loaded. Well, in my example, JAWS 11 was loaded.

It would help, if Windows allowed only one occurrence of a short cut key combination to be allowed to launch a program. So, if you tried to assign a short cut combination that was already assigned to a program to another program, Windows would tell you that this was the case and give you another opportunity to choose another short cut combination for the other program.

Not necessarily. Assuming JAWS 11 is the latest version installed on your
computer, it was automatically assigned the hot key Alt-Control-J when it
was originally installed. Unless you delete this "hidden" hot key, it
will always launch JAWS 11, even if you create the user-defined hot key
Alt-Control-J for JAWS 10. As a rule, hot keys automatically assigned by
an application take precedence over hot keys defined by the user. You can
use Hot Key Detective to determine whether a particular hot key is
application assigned or user assigned. When I installed the demo version
of JAWS 10, Alt-Control-J, which had been created automatically when I
originally installed JAWS 9, was automatically reassigned to JAWS 10. In
order to reassign Alt-Control-J back to JAWS 9, my default version of
JAWS, I had to use Hot Key Detective to delete Alt-Control-J from JAWS 10
and then use the Properties dialog of JAWS 9 to re-create it as a
user-assigned hot key.

Karen:

Yesterday, if you remember, I assigned CTRL+ALT+J to JAWS 10 first and
then JAWS 11. I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed the shortcut key
combination to see which version of JAWS Windows would launch. In that
instance, JAWS 11 was launched over JAWS 10.

Following your comments in your reply, I reversed the actions of my
experiment, to see whether Windows reversed its action, that is, launch
JAWS 10 over JAWS11.

I first deleted the CTRL+ALT+J shortcut key combination for JAWS 10 and
JAWS 11.

I then assigned the shortcut key to JAWS 11 first and did the same with
JAWS 10.

I then unloaded JAWS 10 and pressed CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which
version of JAWS would be loaded.

Well, surprise, surprise, Windows did reverse its action and launched
JAWS 10 over JAWS 11.

It appears that if you assign the same shortcut key to more than one
application, Windows will launch the last program to which you assigned
the shortcut key combination, that is, the application which has the
latest updated date and time stamps.

Dave and everyone:

From what I can tell, the JAWS installation does not automatically
assign CTRL+ALT+J, as a short cut to start JAWS.

I was using JAWS 10 at the time. As an experiment, I assigned
CTRL+ALT+J, to both JAWS 10 and 11. Windows did not complain that I
had assigned the short cut to two applications. I unloaded JAWS 10 and
press CTRL+ALT+J and waited to see which version of JAWS would be
loaded. Well, in my example, JAWS 11 was loaded.

It would help, if Windows allowed only one occurrence of a short cut
key combination to be allowed to launch a program. So, if you tried to
assign a short cut combination that was already assigned to a program
to another program, Windows would tell you that this was the case and
give you another opportunity to choose another short cut combination
for the other program.

Dave Durber

Mike,

Not quite.

Checking the "Start JAWS automatically" just ensure that JAWS will
start up
on boot of the computer.

When installing a new version (say from 11 to 12) a shortcut will be
added
to the desktop with the version number (e.g. JAWS 12) and it may or
may not
have the Ctrl+alt+J keystroke assigned.

If you have more than one major version of JAWS (9, 10, 11, 12) you
could
end up with a desktop shortcut for each, and usually the first one
with the
hotkey.

Users like Tom need to edit the shortcut preferences for the old
version and
the new to ensure that only one has the hotkey assigned.

Hi Tom,

There is no need to transfer the alt, control, + J, keystroke. That
is the
default shortcut keystroke for all versions of Jaws. What you need to
do is
go to the Jaws12 context menu / options / basics and check the box to
have
Jaws12 start automatically. By checking this box in any version of
Jaws,
tells Jaws to use this particular keystroke as the shortcut keystroke.
Hope
this helps. Take care.

Hi, again.

I just thought of one more question here.

What is the best way to transfer the Alt Control J shortcut to Jaws
12
from
Jaws 11, when doing the upgrade process?

I seem to recall having a problem with this once before in earlier
upgrades,
and can't remember how to resolve it.

All I remember is that I had great difficulty transferring the
shortcut
over
to the new version of Jaws from the earlier version.

I would have thought that the "merge utilities" function would have
taken
care of this, but it didn't in my earlier upgrade efforts.

Thanks for putting up with all my questions lately.

Gerald:

When I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro on my computer and installed JAWS
9, the JAWS installation program did not, I repeat, did not, assign
CTRL+ALT+J or, any other shortcut key combination to JAWS 9.

Likewise, when I installed JAWS 10, 11, and 12, none of the installation
programs for any of those versions did not, again I repeat, did not, assign
any shortcut key.

Finally, before posting my response to your last posting, I called FS Tech
Support to clarify this point.

The Tech Support Representative, when I ask them if JAWS assigns a shortcut
key automatically during the installation process or not, said that the JAWS

installation program does not assign any shortcut key to the newly installed

version of JAWS. They went on to say that JAWS might delete an assigned
shortcut key. when you use the Repair JAWS function.
