Hi,

I always thought that "access keys speak all"within Jaws Basic Settings
caused the modifier keys to be announced, but now you mention it I've
gotthat turned on and Jaws doesn't announce these keys, so I've no idea what
this feature is supposed to do.

Adrian.

Hi.

In this respect, NVDA is better because it tells you what modifier keys
you're pressing in help mode. Jaws doesn't or at least I haven't managed to
get it to speak keys like control, alt control etc. 

Cheers,

Mo.
