I've been a JAWS user for twenty years and I have not encountered the ability to turn off or on Java scripting.

...are you sure that this is what you really want?

Hello All,

How do you enable and disable Java Script in JAWS?

Do Window Eyes, VoiceOver and NVDA have the same ability to enable and disable Java Script?
