JAWS Scripting

The JAWS scripting language has functions and scripts. Scripts can be associated with keystrokes -- functions can not be directly associated with keystrokes. Refer to the figure below of a sample script using the say function.
    
      Script sayGameOver()
         say(msg_game_over,ot_message)
      EndScript
