moderated jaws controls when not in systray?


Stan Holdeman
 

Listers: Help! I decided to not run Jaws in the systray to see if some problems would go away. Now I do have j 2021 running but no control over it. I could not put jaws back in systray if I wanted to.

 

Now there is the Jaws symbol in the task bar but clicking on it gives me nothing except an announcement “Jaws Home Use”. Task switching announces Jaws but nothing is there to work with.

 

What am I missing here?

Hi, Stan. What happens if, when you are in the window that says,

 

JAWS Home use

 

you press ALT plus O for Options,

ALT plus L for Language,

ALT plus U for Utilities,

ALT plus H for Help?

Stan:
 
Press ALT+TAB, until JAWS announces the JAWS window, then, release both keys.
 
Press ALT+F, to open the JAWS Context Menu.
 
JAWS will say, "Options Submenu". Press RIGHT ARROW, to open it.
 
JAWS will say, "Basics...". Press ENTER, to open the dialog box.
 
Tap the TAB key 5 times or, until JAWS says, "Run JAWS from System Tray". If JAWS tells you THE check box is unchecked, tap the SPACE BAR, to check it. Tap the TAB key to the OK button, and either press the SPACE BAR or, ENTER KEY OR, use the Windows shortcut keystroke, ALT+O, to close the dialog BOX. You should go back to the JAWS window.
 
PressINSERT+F4, and confirm you want to exit JAWS, that is, if you have this option set in the default JAWS settings centre file.
 
Restart JAWS. JAWS will now start from the System Tray.
 
HTH

Hi Stan

Does insert + J make the Jaws window appear?

Thanks
Tim

Not unless Jaws is in systray. When Jaws is in focus,though, alt/F does access the Jaws menu, and I thank Dave for clueing me in. I bet Bill White’s suggestion would have worked, too, but I did not get around to trying it.

 

Thanks for all suggestions.

 

Stan
