moderated Keys Seemingly Stuck Down
Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
Has anyone suggested trying a different keyboard to sort out if it is a hardware issue?

Here are a couple of additional things to consider. One, sometimes there can be some sort of setting within the JAWS Keyboard Manager (under JAWS Utilities) that can cause this problem. Maybe setting it back to its defaults should be tried. I do not know exactly how to do this, but I know it can be done pretty easily! Another idea is to take a look at any weird, inadvertent keyboard settings that you may have set in your computer itself. Sometimes, these are called “hot keys.” Sometimes, they are found wherever you might re-define function key operations. In Windows 7, you could find the right place under Control Panel. For Windows 10, I am not sure where to look since I myself am new to it.
Thanks for the suggestion; I will give it a try.
I have not followed this thread from the beginning, but have read the last few posts. I’m not sure if this idea has been suggested, but if you have not done so, try holding down the stuck key for 5 seconds. You may need to do this several times. In the past, this has unstuck a key for me. HTH.
I guess I could try unloading Jaws and re-loading, although I have tried disabling and re-enabling it. Re-starting the computer doesn’t stop it from happening.
In addition to the ideas which have been suggested. unload and reload JFW. Also restart the computer.
My personal opinion for what it is worth, I do not think that your problem has anything to do with the Sticky Key function. In order for the Sticky Key function to be activated using the keyboard, either the left or right shift key needs to be tapped rapidly 5 times in succession.
the next thing is to press both keys i.e., ctrl or alt keys several times at the same time rapidly and I find that clears the problem for me when it happens.

I was so excited to read your message and sure enough, press the shift key 5 times certainly gives you the ption to switch off sticky keys, however, unfortunately it didn't solve my problem. What a shame!----------------------------------------
