Re: JAWS 15 and Virtual Ribbons

Hit insert plus v while in the application where you want to make the change. Look for the virtual ribbons setting and check it or uncheck it as you would like.

How do you vary the Virtual Ribbon setting by application, since it must be set to on or off in the default configuration?

Thank you.

The documentation doesn't tell you this, but virtual ribbon can be varied by application, just in case you ever find it useful.

Thanks, Kevin. That didn't dawn on me. I should've figured that out. But I do appreciate your explanation. I'm going to take the challenge and turn off Virtual Ribbons. And that explains why hot keys never have worked for me. I now know that they only work with the Ribbon, not with the Virtual Ribbon.
Thanks much.

Jean

Hello Jean,
It is not a dumb question 12 months ago I had no idea either, and perhaps I still don't, lol. When using the virtual ribbon one arrows around through the various menus to find the item one wants to click on, the advantage being one is able to see what is available. For example if you want to change a font, you press alt h to go to the home menu, and tab down to font using virtual ribbons. Using the ribbon to find font ,however, just press control shift f, . In the ribbon one has the use of quick keys, so once you learn the combination of keys required for a particular task it is much quicker to click on. The ribbon may take a little more effort to begin with,
but I found it to be worth it, but that is only my opinion.
Cheers Kevin Hourigan.

Rather a dumb question, but I don't understand the difference between the virtual ribbon and the ribbon. Can you please explain?

Dan,
My recommendation is to forget all about the virtual ribbon, and become proficient with the ribbon. In the long run it will be beneficial. That is what I have found.

Hello all.



I'm having trouble getting the virtual ribbon to work in Outlook 2007 with JAWS 15. I had trouble getting it to work in word. I had to play around with collapsing and expanding the ribbon a few times; however, the same strategy isn't working for outlook.



I would appreciate any help or suggestions.



Thanks.



Dan
