moderated Including keystrokes in Speech History?

Does anyone know a way to have speech history include keystrokes that were pressed and not just what JAWS said? This would be a helpful way of recording a walk through of content.

Hi, Mark. There is no way currently to have key strokes included in Speech History. If there were, it could present a privacy concern. I think the only way you are going to have a log of keystrokes pressed is to install a key logger, which will present privacy concerns of its own.

In settings center there is a button called something like keycaps that I remember being discussed by Jonathan on FSCast as a way to prevent “tab” from being spoken every time it was typed (including alt-tab). So I expect you could reverse this process to have tab and arrow keys pressed.
Probably would be worthwhile setting this up in a demo user account, because I am sure you don’t want to hear all that usually.
