Since the tab key will be silent in JAWS 2019, I decided to turn it off in my current 2018.
Muting the tab key also mutes the shift, control and alt keys. I also muted the return or enter key. Window-Eyes users will appreciate this configuration since these keys were all muted in Window-Eyes.
When I switched to JAWS, I left JAWS as it was since I felt it would give me confirmation in learning the different keyboard commands, but now that I’ve turned them off, I appreciate the silence. Smile.
I just pressed alt-f7 to spell-check this message, and JAWS spoke both keys. It does not say alt when the key is pressed alone, nor when alt is pressed with the tab key.
I imagine that if I muted the function keys, then the spell-check message would just read without any key confirmation.
Just FYI and something to play with. Smile.
A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it isn't open.
