Yesterday I began highlighting some of the new features within JAWS Version 16. I discussed how an entire unmarked PDF document could be easily converted into synthetic speech. Today I would like to take a few moments to talk about the new JAWS Command Search. This new feature allows a user to look up any of the hundreds of JAWS commands whether it is anything from a reading key, to a Layard key stroke, to a Braille display command. To take advantage of this feature simply do the following: press the insert key plus the space bar and then the letter j. You will be placed in an edit field where you can begin typing the command that you need to be refreshed upon. Although all of us use commands such as read current line routinely, there are many commands that we simply don’t have occasion to use all that frequently; such as the list of special symbols (insert plus number’s row 4)it is for these commands that the JAWS Command Search really stands out as a powerful tool for with just a couple of key strokes the user is immediately brought to the information they would have otherwise had to spend far longer looking up in one of the help topics. I have been a JAWS user for nearly thirty years and I have already taken advantage of this new feature. I hope you find it as useful as I have.
