Monte,
 
Jaws doesn't have a shortcut keystroke for quickly accessing punctuation levels, but below are steps for creating 1.  Below the steps are 3 ways to change punctuation levels the traditional ways.
 
1. Press, Insert + F2, to open the Jaws Manager, go to, Keyboard Manager, press enter, navigate to, Default, & tab 1 time to get into the list of options. 
Or, you can go directly from within any program to its JAWS Keyboard Manager (.JKM) by pressing, Insert / Jaws Key + 8, on the number row, then press,
Control, Shift, + D, to open the DEFAULT JAWS Keyboard Manager.
2. In the Default keyboard manager list navigate to, Set Punctuation Level none.  None means there has not been a keystroke assigned.
3. Press the, Alt key, to open the menues, & right arrow to, Action, down arrow to, Add Keystroke..., & press enter.  Or, press, control + A, is the shortcut
keystroke for, asigning a keystroke.
4. Insert a keystroke combination like, control + dash, for example. if the combination is already being used for another command jaws will tell you. 
Doing this in the Default Keyboard Manager, allows this keystroke to be used in all aplications.
5. Tab to the, Okay button, press the spacebar, a dialogue will open asking if you're sure you want to modify the default JKM, press the spacebar on the,
Yes, option.
 
Now, every time you press the control + dash keystroke it changes the punctuation level.  So, press the control + dash keystroke until you hear the punctuation
level you want.
 
If you ever want to change or remove the keystroke open the Keyboard Manager, Find Default, Find Set Punctuation Level, press the, Alt key, right arrow
to Action, & arrow down to make your choice of what you want to do.
 
*** 
 Here are 3 ways of changing the punctuation level setting:
#1.  For an individual application using Jaws Quick Settings:
1. While in any application / program press, Insert + V, to open the Jaws quick settings.
2. In the search field type, punctuation, or just the 1st 4 letters will work as well and it'll take a second for the list to populate.  You should hear
something like, Punctuation 1 of 1 search results.  Now down arrow and you should hear Jaws report, punctuation... with the ... meaning your current level
setting.  Now press the spacebar to toggle through your punctuation level options.  They are None, Some, Most & All.
3. When you hear the level setting you want stop pressing the spacebar, tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and close.
 
 
 
#2.  To change the punctuation level for an individual application in the Settings Center:
1. Open the Settings Center by pressing, Insert + 6, on the number row.
2. Down arrow to, Punctuation closed, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow 2 times to, Punctuation level..., the ... is the current level you're set on.  Now press the spacebar to toggle through your punctuation
level options.  They are None, Some, Most & All.
4. When you hear the level setting you want stop pressing the spacebar, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save and
close.
 
#3. To change the punctuation level for all applications in Settings Center default all applications:
1. Open the Settings Center by pressing, Insert + 6, on the number row, now press, control, shift + D, to open Settings Center default all applications.
2. Down arrow to, Punctuation closed, and right arrow to open.
3. Down arrow 2 times to, Punctuation level..., the ... is the current level you're set on.  Now press the spacebar to toggle through your punctuation

Hi Mike,

 

I don’t understand the finer points of baseball,  but I suspect  you play shortstop.

You’re always on the ball.

I’ll read through your directions carefully and choose the path that is closest to idiot proof.

 

Thanks a migful,

 

Monte
