I am attempting to include  [  ]  $  ?  \  in the below snippet. I tried to escape them to no avail. What is the proper syntax for this string?

function validate_desc(val){
        if ( val.match("^[a-zA-Z0-9,-. \\\\/(/)#/_/'\":]+\$") ) {
            return true;
        } else {
            return false;
