Re: How to insert a 1-digit fraction into a 2013 word document

I do that too. And with JAWS 17, you have to go through the
O synmbols to get to one half and one fourth.

Bye for now,

That list does not contain the one third or two thirds
symbols.

I have always used Word, to generate the single symbol, for
the other fractions: one-half, one-quarter and
three-quarters.

In Word, just type the 3 characters "1/2". When you press
the space-bar, the 3 characters will become the single
symbol.
This also applys for the fractions: one-quarter and
three-quarters.

How do you create the single symbol for the fractions:
one-third and two-thirds?

Hi Margaret,
Press, Insert / Jaws key + 4, from the number row,
to open the symbols list, press the letter, o, until you
land on, one half / ½, & press enter to insert the fraction
into your document. Do these steps at the point you want to
insert the fraction / symbol.
Take care.

Hello Everyone,



I have JAWS 17, MS Word 2013, and Windows 7, and I
need to know how to type in a 1-digit fraction such as
one-half for a cooking recipe. I really would appreciate
some step-by-step instructions on how to do this.
