Uncheck radio buton next to other, specify

I have the same issue.  We have 7 rows in a grid.  6 require the response.  The 7th row is "other, specify" and the response is not required.  If they do check the radio button and do not fill in the "other, specify" field, we have java script to ask them to fill that in.  But there is always the chance they accidentally checked a radio button and need to uncheck it.
Is there java script so that if they check it a second time it unchecks?

Thank you!

I'm unsure how your situation differs from the previous question.  What about the previous solution is not sufficient for you?

There is an existing JavaScript function that will reset radio buttons called SSI_RadioReset(strInputName) that sounds like it should work for you?

See http://sawtoothsoftware.com/help/lighthouse-studio/manual/hid_web_advanced_javascript.html#ssiwebjavascriptlibrary towards the bottom of that section.

This is great for LIghthouse Studio.  But, does it work for version 8.4?

Thank you!
Yep, the same function exists in version 8
