You need to change the sort sequence. It is currently set to descending and
you want it to be ascending.

Ed,

Awesome. That's a milestone for being able to detect those items we need to
hear.
Thanks for the heavy detective work!

Dave:
In fact, in my little test, I was reading word-by-word. That's because,
with track changes, with say-all, read by line, read by sentence, or read by
paragraph, you won't hear the deleted text. You have to find the line with
the changes and read by word to hear the deleted text.

To test the reading of highlights using just the "Colors" scheme (during my
earlier test I was using the proof reading scheme), I pulled up an otherwise
clean document and highlighted a few words buried in the middle of a
sentence which was itself buried in the middle of a paragraph.
First, I found the text, as described above. Then, I selected it, chose
"highlight" in MS Word, and picked "Yellow."
Next, I pressed Alt+Insert+S and selected the "colors" scheme.
Then, I read the line where the highlighting appeared with Insert+up arrow.
JAWS started the line with "white background," but when it came to the
highlighted text, it said "yellow background" and continued reading the
text. When it finished the highlighted text, JAWS said white background and
continued reading. WOW!
Next, I tried to read by sentence. I moved up the page with a couple of PGUP
commands. Then, I sequentially read down the screen, sentence-by-sentence,
using Alt+down arrow. When it came to the sentence with the highlighted
text, it did exactly the same thing, namely, announced the highlighted text
with "Yellow Background."
That was better than I expected. So, I really decided to put JAWS 14 to the
test. Again, I moved up the screen with a couple of PGUP commands. Then
read by paragraph, using Control+down arrow. To my astonishment, JAWS again
passed the test, saying "Yellow Background" when it came to the highlighted
text and saying "white background" when the highlighting had concluded.
Finally came the granddaddy test -- the test of tests. I moved up the page
again with a couple of depressions of the PGUP key. Then, I pressed
Insert+down arrow to start say all.
I'm glad I was sitting down because, to my amazement, JAWS again read
"yellow background" when it came to the highlighted text.
Dave, like you, I didn't think this would work.
Clearly, if one is content to hear the color of the background, knowing that
is the highlighting, the above method works way, way better than I would
have predicted.
Happy highlighting Tracy!

One other thought...The highlighting is not announced during a say all

I'm reviewing a document in MS Word right now. To test, I highlighted a

choose yellow, but other highlighting techniques may use other colors. The
key is the background. Usually, background is white.
I'm proofing this document, Bylaws that my associate revised using track

I am using the proof reading scheme that shows font, attributes, and color.

Arrow through the list, or if you are as impatient as I am, press the letter

There are at least 3 different proof reading schemes. I picked one that said
font, attribute, and colors. I suspect any scheme that reads colors would
work.
Hope this helps. I'm now going to erase the highlighting.

Hmmm. Did you try Ed's suggestion? Perhaps your highlighted text is not

background color?

What application are you using that needs it to be spoken?

Hmmm. Did you try Ed's suggestion? Perhaps your highlighted text is not
actually highlighted, but selected, as he suggests, or just a different
background color?

What application are you using that needs it to be spoken?

Re: Reading highlighted text

Dave Durber
 

Markette:

Helpful hints: When listting a program, Windows or JAWS command, please use the "+" symbol (without the quotes), not the word plus spelled out. When you use the plus symbol, JAWS pronounces the command correctly, as in, Insert+alt+S. In addition, do not include spaces in the command string. If you do, some people might think that a space character or, space characters, need to be included as well, which is not the case.

Subject: Finding unread items in Outlook

Hi. I've just found the answer to an Outlook problem that went unsolved
several months ago on this list. The question was how to locate unread mail,
especially in a folder containing many messages. Obviously, you can arrow up
or down for messages flagged as unread, but if a certain folder has hundreds
of messages, it is an unwieldy process.

I'm using Outlook 2003, so anyone interested who uses a later version will
need to figure out how it might work there. Note that this method is not
needed in Outlook Express, where simply pressing control-u brings up all
unread messages.

Here's the solution:

1. In the list of folders, find "Search folders." On my system in 2003, it
is the last item under "Personal folders."

2. Press right arrow to open. JAWS does not speak "Open," but if you arrow
up once and back down once, it won't say "Closed." I suggest assuming that
once right arrow is pressed, the folder is open.

3. Press the applications key.

4. The first item that JAWS verbalizes is "New search folder..." Press
enter.

5. A list appears. On my system, the first item verbalized is "Unread
messages." Press enter.

6. Tab once to arrive at a list of unread email from all folders. You can
open, mark or delete each message as desired.

7. to return to the regular folders list, press shift-tab to return to
"Unread," arrow up to "Search folders," then press left arrow to close.

Cy,

Your method works, of course but it's risky because you need to remember to
set it back if you want to see all messages in your folder. Also isn't your
idea restricted to that one folder?

The one Adrian proposes collects all unread messages in all folders, so a
great way to read anything that's been filtered to other folders.

Hmm, I must have missed the question because I look for unread mail quite
often.
In Outlook 2007 when you are in a folder press the alt key, left arrow twice
and arrow down until you see "view".
Press enter. If you see "current view" press enter. You should see
"messages" and several other choices. Arrow down until you see "unread
messages". Press enter and you will see all of the unread messages in that
folder.
When you are through with the unread messages press alt again and arrow left
twice. Find "current view" and press enter. Now, if you press "messages" you
are back in busines with all of the messages in the folder.
In 2003 the message count used to show the number of unread messages but I
see that in 2007 you still see the total number of messages in the folder.
If you want to find messages by a particular person then arrow up once from
"current view" and you should see "arrange by". Press enter and arrow down
until you see "from". Press enter and the folder will be arranged
alphabetically. Press the letter which the sender's name starts with and
then you are in the group of messages which starts with that letter. Just
arrow down until you either find the person you are looking for or you
discover that there are no messages from that sender.
To return to the normal arrangement go through the alt step and press enter
on "arrange by".
The first entry is "date" and that is the one I use.

idea restricted to that one folder?

The one Adrian proposes collects all unread messages in all folders, so a
great way to read anything that's been filtered to other folders.

Subject: RE: Finding unread items in Outlook


Hmm, I must have missed the question because I look for unread mail quite
often.
In Outlook 2007 when you are in a folder press the alt key, left arrow twice
and arrow down until you see "view".
Press enter. If you see "current view" press enter. You should see
"messages" and several other choices. Arrow down until you see "unread
messages". Press enter and you will see all of the unread messages in that
folder.
When you are through with the unread messages press alt again and arrow left
twice. Find "current view" and press enter. Now, if you press "messages" you
are back in busines with all of the messages in the folder.
In 2003 the message count used to show the number of unread messages but I
see that in 2007 you still see the total number of messages in the folder.
If you want to find messages by a particular person then arrow up once from
"current view" and you should see "arrange by". Press enter and arrow down
until you see "from". Press enter and the folder will be arranged
alphabetically. Press the letter which the sender's name starts with and
then you are in the group of messages which starts with that letter. Just
arrow down until you either find the person you are looking for or you
discover that there are no messages from that sender.
To return to the normal arrangement go through the alt step and press enter
on "arrange by".
The first entry is "date" and that is the one I use.

Subject: Finding unread items in Outlook

Hi. I've just found the answer to an Outlook problem that went unsolved
several months ago on this list. The question was how to locate unread mail,
especially in a folder containing many messages. Obviously, you can arrow up
or down for messages flagged as unread, but if a certain folder has hundreds
of messages, it is an unwieldy process.

I'm using Outlook 2003, so anyone interested who uses a later version will
need to figure out how it might work there. Note that this method is not
needed in Outlook Express, where simply pressing control-u brings up all
unread messages.

Here's the solution:

1. In the list of folders, find "Search folders." On my system in 2003, it
is the last item under "Personal folders."

2. Press right arrow to open. JAWS does not speak "Open," but if you arrow
up once and back down once, it won't say "Closed." I suggest assuming that
once right arrow is pressed, the folder is open.

3. Press the applications key.

4. The first item that JAWS verbalizes is "New search folder..." Press
enter.

5. A list appears. On my system, the first item verbalized is "Unread
messages." Press enter.

6. Tab once to arrive at a list of unread email from all folders. You can
open, mark or delete each message as desired.

7. to return to the regular folders list, press shift-tab to return to
"Unread," arrow up to "Search folders," then press left arrow to close.

Re: Finding unread items in Outlook

Cool! Had no idea and it works like a charm as advertised in Outlook 2007.

And after all 299 unread messages populated, I pressed Alt+e and then e to
set them all to "read".
