Braille Study Mode is a training tool for teaching and learning braille.
When Braille Study Mode is on, JAWS will announce the current braille
character in a display cell when you press the Cursor Routing button
immediately above that cell. When you press the particular Cursor
Routing button in conjunction with the left or right selector button, JAWS
will announce and spell the braille word. To enable Braille Study Mode,
do the following:
Make sure that the Focus display is connected to your computer
using either a USB or Bluetooth connection.
Do one of the following:
Press CTRL+INSERT+B to open the Adjust Braille Options
dialog box (JAWS 12 or earlier), or
Press INSERT+V to open Quick Settings (JAWS 13 or later)
or the Adjust JAWS Options dialog box (JAWS 12 or earlier).
Begin typing the word "study" until Study Mode appears, and
then press SPACEBAR to toggle Study Mode on. If using Quick
Settings in JAWS 13, first press TAB to move to the list of
search results, and then press SPACEBAR. Braille Study Mode
remains on until toggled off or until JAWS is restarted.
In addition, the following commands are available even when Braille
Study Mode is disabled:
Press MODE+CURSOR ROUTING to make JAWS announce
the braille character in the display cell, or
Press CURSOR ROUTING+SELECTOR to make JAWS
announce and spell the braille word.
This is useful when you need a quick reminder, but you do not want to go
through the process of turning on Braille Study Mode as previously
Note: JAWS returns to normal operation after announcing the braille
character or word.
