Absolutely, a small temple might be nice as well.

Hi Carlos,
 
Your demand will be fulfilled to the fullest!  Would you like for me to provide personal information, so accolades can be provided privately as well as publicly?!  LOL 
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

No problem Mike.  And I insist you inform everyone that the solution was provided by Carlos the Tech Talk guy.

Hi Carlos,
 
Thank you very much for this.  I'm sure people will get good use from this handy set of steps.  I'll send this over to the Jaws-Users & JFW lists where the guy is looking for a solution to the child's problem.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Well, here are the instructions anyway in case you want to try this.
 
1. Press Insert+0 or CapsLock+0 depending on the keyboard layout to open the Script Manager.
 
2. Press Ctrl+Shift+D to open DEFAULT.JSS.
 
3. Press Control+F to open the
"Find"
dialog and either type or paste the following line to search for it:
 

Script SaySystemTime ()

 

Make sure to press Enter after typing in or pasting the above line.

 

4. Press Escape to close the

"Find"

dialog.

 

5. Arrow down until you find the following five lines:

 

If (IsSameScript ()) then

Let sTimeOrDate = FormatString (cmsgGetSysDate, SysGetDate ())

Else

Let sTimeOrDate = FormatString (cmsgGetSysTime, SysGetTime ())

endIf

 

6. Place a semicolon at the beginning of each of the above lines to comment them out.  For example,

 

;If (IsSameScript ()) then

;Let sTimeOrDate = FormatString (cmsgGetSysDate, SysGetDate ())

;Else

;Let sTimeOrDate = FormatString (cmsgGetSysTime, SysGetTime ())

;endIf

 

7. Immediately after the above five lines, press Enter to create a blank line.

 

8. Copy and paste the following text into the blank line:

 

Let sTimeOrDate = FormatString (cmsgGetSysTime, SysGetTime ())+" "+FormatString (cmsgGetSysDate, SysGetDate ())

 

9. Press Ctrl+S to save/recompile the script.

 

10. Press Insert+F12 or CapsLock+F12 depending on the keyboard layout and see if it works.

I managed to modify the JAWS time/date script to work the way you described so let me know if you want to give it a try.  I wish I could just send you the modified script, but it might not work correctly if we're not both running the exact same version of JAWS.

Hi Mike,
I don't believe this is possible without modifying the default JAWS script.  I can take a look later when I have more time.

Hi All,
 
Is there any way to modify the, Jaws key + F12, keystroke / script so that it will say both the time & date when press ing it just 1 time.  This is for a 1 handed child, & turning on Insert key mode only works for 1 press of the Insert / Jaws key, not if you need to press it twice to get the date.  All help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
