Re: Inserting online pictures in office 2016

I will try this again. You need to use IE as your web browser. In Google, bring up links and go to images. Hit enter and type the type of picture you are looking for. Hit enter and use G to jump from picture to picture. I usually go with the first picture since I am totally blind. Route the JAWS cursor and right click. You can't use the applications key here. You must use the right click key. Now use your application key and go down to save as. Then hit enter and give the picture a name.  It will be saved in your pictures folder. Then you go to where you want the picture in Word, PPT... and alt n for insert and p for picture. Find the picture you want to insert and use your application key to size and alt text your picture. This may be much more complicated but with practice you can insert a picture that looks like it was inserted by a sighted person. This is the method I teach my students.

Once you have selected the picture by checking the check box next to it, activate the JAWS Touch Cursor, RIGHT ARROW to the Insert button, and press ENTER to insert the image. The Insert button is some type of JavaScript control that dynamically appears once you have checked an image check box but which is not appearing in the JAWS Virtual Buffer. To return to the PC cursor from the Touch cursor, press the PC Cursor command twice quickly. The keys to activate the cursors depend on which keyboard layout you are using…


The only descriptive information which JAWS can provide you is the image size and URL. Bing doesn’t have some type of artificial intelligence facility built in to it which would provide a description of the actual picture content…

I am trying to insert picture using word 2016. I have been told to use the following commands to insert a picture - alt and n, then f for online pictures, then type in description of picture you require and then press enter to get up list of suitable pictures. I was told jaws would read picture descriptor, but it does not. I then tab arrow through the pictures and press enter to select and then control and enter to insert picture into document, but it will not insert picture. Can anyone advise where I a going wrong?
