Re: Reading comments with a document


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Ann:
Just finished editing a document with 11 comments.
Here is what I do.
First, use Jaws key plus v. If you are using Jaws 13, type "comment" in the search box. Otherwise, arrow down until you hit the comments reading option. Tell jaws to read the comments as you come to them.
Now, when you use the control plus shift plus apostrophe, arrow to the comment you want. Then tab to OK.
Once you hit OK, you will be at the comment. Use your arrow keys to move back one space and then forward one space. Jaws will read the comment. In fact, if you just want to arrow through the document, Jaws will read the comment when you come to it.
Another way to jump to the next comment is to use so-called quick keys.
Use Jaws key plus z to turn on quick keys (they are like the quick keys on the Web with HTML documents or PDF documents). Then, you can jump to comments with the letter "n."
I know "n" is not exactly intuitive, but that is it.
You jump to revisions with "r," and that works pretty well. Remember to turn of quick keys with Jaws key plus z when you want to make edits.
There is a way to jump to the next comment inside Word. In fact, I've created a Word hot key to do that, alt plus shift plus r, but that doesn't work all that well with comments.
Somehow this puts Jaws inside the comment, and Jaws behaves very, very badly inside comments.
I hope this helps.

Subject: Reading comments with a document

I have a document with comments. I can list the comments separately,
out of context, with shift-ctrl-apostrophe, or sometimes stop reading
and display the comment at the cursor with alt-ctrl-apostrophe
(although this doesn't always work). How can I have JAWS read the
comments inline, along with the text they refer to?

thanks.
