Re: Track changes in Word 2007/2013

If you really want to do it, go in and alter your profile's voice adjustments. I don't know how comments would be classified, though.

There may be, but why do you want to do this? To me, it makes perfect sense that JAWS reads comments in a different voice, as it makes it easier to distinguish them from the body of the main text.

Hi again,

I have one more question regarding track changes. When I arrow through my document, and come to a line that has a comment, the Jaws voice changes to Rocko when reading the comment. Is there a way to prevent the Jaws voice from changing when it reads a comment?

Thanks,

Russell

I just reviewed Paul's very thorough tips on using track changes in Word.
I
think I was in that thread with Paul, and I cannot think of a thing
he left out.
You should know that turning on the quick access keys with JAWS key
plus z is pretty much useless in large documents. So, don't rely on
that.
Also, don't rely on JAWS to give you the colors of the added and
deleted text. In the end, that's not all that important because the
colors depend on everyone's computer. So a deletion that is in red
on your computer may be green on someone else's computer.
In the verbosity settings, turning on "count" is crucial. That way
you'll know if there has been a change in a line if you are reading
by line.
This
is not too reliable if you are jumping by paragraph. JAWS won't
always tell you when an entire paragraph has been deleted if you are
jumping through a document with control plus down arrow.
Paul is also right about sighted users having some of the same
problems, especially in identifying who made what changes. JAWS will
actually announce the names. Sighted users have to jump through way
more hoops to figure out who made what change -- particularly when
there have been 4 or
5
people editing a document.
Good luck.
Ps
As frustrating as JAWS is on track changes, the other screen readers
either don't attempt to follow track changes or do so crudely.

Hi Kimber,

Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions… very helpful. You
and Paul suggest the same trick of using the Quick Access toolbar… a
great idea.

Take care,

Russell

Track changes are, quite honestly, a pain in the butt with any
version of jaws. It can be done, but you will need patience and perseverance.

Now having said that, what I've done is place accept and reject
changes on the quick access toolbar so I can use control key
combinations to perform these functions. The whole operation is
still a bit clunky, and there are times when you will need to use
your jaws functions to list revisions and the like. But it can be done.

Hi everyone,

What is the most efficient way to use track changes in MS Word 2013
or
2007 using Jaws 16? It seems a little tedious to bring up a list of
revisions with shift + Insert + R and then work through all the
listed insertions and deletions one by one, especially in a long
document. Is there a way to accept or reject a change and then jump
directly to the next revision and so on without having to bring up
the list again?

Any suggestions for using track changes more efficiently would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks all.

Russell
