Re: Protecting a document

Mario
 

just to point something out, changing the attribute of a document file to read-only protects the file from being saved as a modified file. so it doesn't prevent the document from being read. for that, it would have to be password protected that you and the recipient would need to know.

Hi Ann,
It really depends what type of document it is, .doc, .pdf or .txt etc,
and who you are protecting it from.
Making it a read only file is the simplest, and can be accomplished by
opening the file properties and checking the read only
checkbox on the general tab.
As for the password protection methods, there are various ways of doing this
depending on the software used to create the file or by third-party
software.
I am not well-versed in Microsoft Word, so I can't give any details on how
to password protect a Word Doc, but I am sure someone else can.
Hopefully others on-list can give more options.

HTH,
Rick

Turning Off New Podcast Alert

Peter Donahue
 

Good morning everyone,

While we appreciate knowing when a new issue of FSCast is available receiving those alerts at 2:30 in the morning and having it mess up JAWS isn't something we wish to put up with. If someone could please tell me how to turn off this notification in JAWS it will be very much appreciated. Thanks much and stay safe.

J 2020, magic14 reading newspaper

Stan Holdeman
 

Friends: In my local digital newspaper with both J2020 and Magic 14 running, I can pull my mouse pointer over certain text and that text is read as if in say all. But without magic and with only J 2020 running the same text is not read when I take the mouse pointer to it.

 

What is happening here?

There is no really good method to do this.  Most can be worked around if the document is still in DOCX format.

It's not perfect, but I find it far more effective to save as PDF and send that out.  There are some who have PDF editors and know how to use them, but far fewer than the number who have MS-Office and know the tricks to get around protection.

If you really insist on sticking with DOCX you can use ALT+L,PE (Layout Ribbon, Restrict Editing), then navigate to the checkbox under Editing Restrictions and check it.  After it's checked, a dropdown box of options becomes accessible, the default is No Changes (Read Only), which is what you want.  Then navigate to the button, "Yes, start enforcing protection," and activate it.  At this point a dialog box comes up allowing you to choose password protection as the way to be able to unset editing restrictions or User Authentication.  Most use Password Protection, which makes you do the usual entering of the password you want in two boxes.  Then hit the OK key and the document can no longer be edited, even by you, unless you go back and turn off editing restrictions.

Seeking an accessible wifi analysis tool

Audiobookfan
 

I'm seeking an accessible wifi analysis tool for Windows 10. What I want is a tool that will provide an accessible list of the nearby networks along with the channel they broadcast on and their signal strength. The channel is most important because I think I'm experiencing interference from nearby routers since I live in an apartment complex. I want to be able to find the least busy channel so I can minimize the interference.

I had wanted an iOS app to do this, but in my research, I think Apple blocks apps from accessing the hardware in the phone that will do this. So, I guess I need a Windows tool that I can use with JAWS.

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi all,

I have outlook to check spelling before a message is sent.

If I hit F and 7 on the top row of keys, it says not in  dictionary, and then it says the misspelled word and says no suggested items. But if I tab one time, it shows a list of suggestions.

Secondly, if I read through a message that I am going to send, I keep hearing, miss spelled, and the word that is miss spelled. How do I get rid of that in the text/?

Thanks for your help. Jim

well, the speed of your connection to the Internet is certainly one factor, but you said that you noticed that the sluggishness started after upgrading to JAWS 2020. the problem might not be related to your connection to the Internet at all.
