moderated preforming a right click

I was never quite sure why people have trouble with this. it’s usually pretty easy to know when something is a screen-reader command. Most of the ones that aren’t scripted by third parties use the Jaws key.

There are hundreds of native Windows keyboard shortcuts, and I have forgotten more than what many even know about.

Most folks seem to think all the commands they use are Jaws commands, when they are just windows commands.

It wouldn’t hurt to review the windows list of keyboard shortcuts, some are more useful than Jaws shortcuts.

For example, windows + B will give you more context options than the Jaws insert F11.

So most of what people are doing with the keyboard could be done without a screenreader installed.

The screenreaders add layers of commands which can give us access which in some cases, the windows keyboard commands are lacking.

But, again, this relies on JAWS emulation.  And whether it’s JAWS or any other screen reader, mouse button emulation is very frequently hit or miss.

Best practice is the applications/context menu key, or SHIFT + F10, both of which are native Windows commands that are analogous to a physical right mouse button click.  There’s really no point in introducing any uncertainty when it’s just not necessary.

Each can do as he or she sees fit, but only once the issues surrounding the various choices are clear.  That’s an informed choice.—

Well one keyboard command that might help, maybe you did this too, and it is for knowing what exactly has been selected:
shift + insert + zero (number pad) & 2.

By far and away the most reliable method is either using the applications/context menu key if your keyboard happens to have one, or SHIFT + F10 if it does not.  Neither of these involve any emulation and Windows recognizes both.

Yeah. It’s the left click situation taht’s a little bit trickier. Maybe especially for those of us who don’t have a laptop – actually in a situation now where I don’t even know where my physical mouse is as somehow when assembling my new desk/worksation I seem to have misplaced it. Of course it’s not the sort of thing that would even occur to me as I can go weeks without even thinking about a  mouse, but then, boom, suddenly you find yourself at a point where one might be useful and it’s, oh no, where is that blasted thing? I suspect some blind folks don’t even have one.

If that's the case, and we're not talking about a laptop, that would almost certainly be because they threw it away, which is a very bad idea.

I don't know of a single person, blind or not, who doesn't have at least a few occasions where an assistant becomes involved and when most sighted people need to work they have to have a mouse.

I've also never understood why instructors for blind tech do not teach how to "hobble" a mouse such that a real left and right click are available when they are needed, and no emulation works.  It's so simple (and I'm presuming an optical mouse - roller ball mice have been a thing of the past for a long while now):  Put a piece of tape over the laser port underneath, and once you know what it feels like it's impossible to mistake (and there's usually only one "big hole" in the bottom of a mouse).  Once that's done, no amount of moving the mouse will cause the mouse pointer to move, but you still have real left and right click.  If you do this with a small piece of cardboard and tape it can be easier to remove when that might be needed.

In the case of a laptop mouse pad, that's done simply by masking off the track pad area with a piece of cardboard that is at least as thick as a manila folder or, preferably, the back of your average legal pad.  Finger touches cannot be detected through this, but the hard left and right mouse buttons are still available (or the left and right push corners where actual separate hard buttons are not present).

Knowing how to create and use a "neutered"/"hobbled" mouse or mouse pad can solve a lot of annoyance.

It doesn't change the fact that they're a tiny, tiny portion of the sighted user base.  And we all know, and not just in computing, how a number of tiny, tiny minorities can be very, very loud.  Sometimes that's a positive, others, not so much.

A simple web search on [Windows Keyboard Shortcuts] almost always returns Microsoft's own page documenting them all as the first result.  If it's not the first one, I've never seen it not occur somewhere in the top five.

There used to be separate pages depending on the version of Windows, but in recent years it's a page where you will most likely see the latest version of Windows in a selection dropdown at the top, and where you simply choose another version if you want it's keyboard shortcuts instead.

Most of the core keyboard shortcuts have remained the same for decades now.  There's been the rare occasion where an existing one is changed, but even when that happens it tends to be one of the later ones added as Windows has marched along, not one of the ones we all know and love that have been around since Windows 3.1.

Just did that search, and in DuckDuckGo, Google, and Bing the first returned result:

What has changed is that the dropdown is now gone and there's a tab-type selection across the top for Windows 11 (default), Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 RT, Windows 7.

It's not just JAWS, but all screen readers I've ever dealt with.

Since most laptop 15" or larger have a full-sized keyboard with number pad, that makes sense.  The laptop layouts were created before this was as common as it is now for laptops, and still remains common for small "netbook" type laptops.

I can't remember the last time I've touched a laptop, and I mean a real laptop intended for broad general use, not a netbook, that did not have a number pad as part of a full-sized keyboard.  

There do remain a select few business "ultrabook" type machines where size/weight are being minimized to the maximum extent possible that do have the old-style keyboard with no number pad.

Wouldn't you still have to route the pointer to the object you wish to right click on?

Sometimes, sometimes not.

For a "sometimes not" example, open File Explorer and then gain focus on any random file or folder you wish using only the keyboard.  Then hit SHIF + F10 or the Applications/Context Menu Key.  You'll get the context menu for that object.

It really depends on whether what you're doing to gain focus is also moving Windows system focus at the same time or not.  There are lots of times where the virtual cursor position and the actual mouse position are not one and the same, and if you need to right click on what's got focus in the virtual cursor then you need to route the mouse to the object that has screen reader focus before issuing right click.

Brian, for what it is worth JAWS screen curtain helps a lot with avoiding the mouse. If it is on and I bump my mouse, it says, "Screen shade on. Right click to turn off." 

I have done the cardboard thing in the past. Several years ago there was a feature some laptops included for a while with a physical switch to turn off your track pad. I loved that.


Gene Warner
 

I wish my laptop had that switch, in order to disable my touch pad I had to install the touch pad drivers, ludicrous since I won't be using the touch pad...

If you are using the JAWS laptop keyboard layout, pressing CAPS LOCK+LEFT, PARENTHESIS, is the left mouse click, pressing CAPS LOCK+RIGHT PARENTHESIS, is the right mouse click.

Hi.

If you're using a numeric keypad for your JAWS control, it's the key to the left of the JAWS key.

I'm not sure how to do it with the laptop setup.

Oh! I almost forgot, if num lock is turned off, you can also do a right click by pressing the star key or asterisk key on the numeric key pad.

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how to do a right click using Jaws? Someone told me
that it’s alt enter but I tried that and I don’t think it worked.
Since I don’t have any vision I’ve never had to use a mouse so I’ve
never had to learn how to do the functions of a mouse using Jaws. I
have multiple entries of this account when I go into my folder list in
Outlook; I find this rather annoying as I don’t have that with the
other account that I have connected to Outlook so I’d really like to
get rid of the other entries for this account as whenever I open
Outlook it opens the inbox for one of the other entries instead of
this inbox which is rather annoying. I asked on another list and I was
told by multiple people that there’s an option to remove these other
entries but when I bring up the context menu the remove option doesn’t
show up so someone suggested that I try doing a right click to see if
that brings up the option. Someone suggested to call the Microsoft
Disability help desk but since I know that other visually impaired
people can access the remove option I think that I should be able too
as well without calling them for help; if anyone has any other ideas
of how I could try and access this option then I’d love to hear them
as long as it isn’t to remove and add my account again as I did that
once as I accidently removed it when removing another account and when
I added it again all of my contacts were gone so I’m not going through
that again. Using latest versions of Jaws, Microsoft 365 and Windows
11; thanks for any suggestions that anyone can provide me!
