This document describes the JAWS scripts for Winlink Express and provides tips for using this application with JAWS. This document can be opened from within the application via a double press of JAWSKey+F1 (or Insert+F1) when the scripts are running.
In addition to any system requirements for the application, the following apply for JAWS users:
To install these scripts on a new system:
These scripts incorporate commands that consist of sequences of keystrokes, all beginning with a common prefix, or "command keystroke." This approach allows many script commands without the risk of conflicting with application keystrokes. See the "Multi-Key Command Sequences" section of the "Common Script Elements" document for further details, including how to explore the available script commands (similar to exploring a menu system), and how to change the Command keystroke if necessary.
By default, the Command keystroke for these scripts is [. This document may refer to this keystroke as [ or Command; so, for example, [ Tab and Command Tab both refer to typing the prefix keystroke, then separately the Tab key. Some sequences may consist of more than two keystrokes, or "levels"; for example, [ d r would refer to typing [, then d, then finally r.
These scripts provide the following commands and features beyond those provided by JAWS and the application:
The following issues are known and may be encountered during use of the application with these JAWS scripts. These issues may be fixed in a future update to the scripts or to the application itself.
The "Additional Data" field on the initial Properties screen does not speak its name when reached via Tab or Shift+Tab. Use Insert+Tab to read the field name.
Braille support is not well tested and is likely incomplete.
