When jaws goes silent, have you tried the insert, windows key and F4 option.

It does work sometimes, but very annoyingly not all of the time.

Hello all,

here's a question which I feel some people may find rather bizarre. Does
anyone know of any action one can perform on a Windows XP PC which is bound
to cause Jaws to crash?

I'm running JAWS and want to crash it, so that I can test the effectiveness
of putting in a Pen Drive with NVDA to trouble-shoot and wake Jaws up again.
Currently, if Jaws suddenly gives me the silent treatment, I have to ring
our technicians to get them to connect remotely and bail me out. I'd like to
test whether NVDA would obviate the need for me to do this.
