Sigh. Arrogant and obnoxious as usual. He can't possibly offer a solution without insisting you announce to the world that it was provided by him LOL.

*Subject:* [TechTalk] Saying System Time & Date With JAWS 1 Handed
Hi All,
I received the following set of steps off list from Joseph Free Tech
for using 1 key to tell time & date. This looks like a very good
approach for the 1 handed typists.
Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Arguing with a woman is like reading a software license agreement. In the end you have to ignore everything, & click I agree.

Hi Mike,
Regarding your JAWS SayTime and date question...
I'll provide the following solution with the condition that you
convey to
others that it was Joseph Freetech who provided the solution. :)
I have been suggesting this solution to others for a few years now,
and I've
never heard any complaints, in fact, I've heard amazement after the
presses the hotkey. In the instructions below you will be
configuring the
PauseBreak key to act as the Insert+F12 key. There is absolutely no
need for
modifying scripts--you're simply adding an additional keyboard
which should not get in your way whatsoever--unless the person is
using the
PauseBreak key for something else.
You will be modifying the JAWS keyboard manager.
1. Press JawsKey+8 (on the numrow) to open the JAWS Keyboard Manager.
2. Press ControlShift+D to open the default keyboard manager.
3. Tab to show the list of all keyboard assignments.
4. quickly type the following letters until you find the following
5. Press Control+A to activate the following item: add keystroke.
6. Press the PauseBreak key then tab to Ok and press enter.
Note: on a normal 104 key external keyboard, the PauseBreak key is
the third
key on the 3-pack of keys to the top right of most standard
keyboards. If
you can't find it, turn on the JAWS help to locate this key.
Note: use the JAWS cursor and read the entire screen to insure you have
assigned the PauseBreak key and no other key.
7. After pressing on Ok, you will be asked by JAWS if you are
certain you
want to modify the JAWS keyboard manager, so simply press enter on Yes.
8. Press the PauseBreak once, and you should hear the time. Press the
PauseBreak key twice quickly within half a second of time, and you
hear the date.
Note: this also works on laptops, though it might be a little harder
to find
the PauseBreak key if you don't have sighted help.
Please let me know if you have any difficulties with this process. :)
Joseph the free tech guy!
