Re: Setting the Hotkey for Restarting JAWS

Hi and thanks guys!  I’m not sure whether it was the Enter or the Space Bar that did the trick, but my computer has now let me make the Jaws shortcut icon.

 

Gratefully Yours,

Vicky V

This is a windows10 security feature don’t worry about it just press the spacebar or enter and whatever you are doing will be done.

You should go to users in control panel and see if there is a separate administrator account, and if so, find out from the person who set up the computer what the administrator's password is.

I hate it when computer technicians do that.

I also have the vanishing Jaws hot key.  However, when I tried to replace it, my computer said that I did not have "Administrator" rights.

Since I own this computer and no one else uses it, what does this mean and how do I make it allow me this?

Thanks very much for any help!

Sincerely, Vicky V

My issue is that periodically this hot key disappears and I have to set it again.

Hi

As stated above, you can define a key to start JAWS so the combination of
Control+alt+(Chosen key(s)) will start a new copy of JAWS.    However it
used to be that it will only start a new copy of JAWS and not stop a
currently running copy of JAWS.  So as I have seen, you can have 2 copies of
JAWS jabbering away at each other.  So to recycle JAWS, you first have to
stop the currently running copy and then start the new copy of JAWS.  I
believe that this is still true.

Go to the JAWS icon on the desk top, press alt+enter--this will open the
properties, tab over to shortcut hot key--press the letter or number that
you want to use as the hot key, for example: 'j', then tab to ok. When you
need to reload JAWS just press alt+ctrl+j, (or what ever key you set),  and
JAWS will reload.
