Lessons

JAWS Command Search

Experience Level: Beginner
Length: 1.0 hours
Objectives:

JAWS provides many keystrokes to perform a variety of commands. While there are certain commands that are used by the majority of JAWS users on a daily basis, such as Say Line (INSERT+UP ARROW) or Say Title (INSERT+T), there are numerous commands that even the most experienced users do not use regularly and need to be looked up. Application-specific and even braille commands can be especially difficult to remember as some of them consist of a complex series of keystrokes. The JAWS Command Search feature enables you to enter a full or partial description of a command whose keystroke you do not remember. JAWS displays all commands that match your search criteria, the description of the feature, and all the associated keystrokes, including braille commands if a display is in use at that time.
