Accessing Excel Spreadsheet In Protected View

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.



I just received an e-mail with an Excel spreadsheet that I cannot seem to
access with Jaws.



When I shift-tab to get to the attachment file list, Jaws stops speaking, so
I can't tell where the attachment actually is.



My sighted wife tells me that the file in question is attached to the
e-mail, but is in a view-only mode, and that you have to double-click on it
to open it up in edit mode.



I'd like to be able to fix this issue not just for this particular file, but
for any Excel Spreadsheet file I receive via e-mail if possible.



I'm currently using Jaws 14, Windows 7, and office 2010 on this computer.



Dr. Tom Behler from Michigan

Re: Netflix Accessibility with JAWS

dan Kerstetter <dhk55@...>
 

Last time I checked, Netflix was using the Microsoft Silverlight player.
Somewhere there is a list of keystrokes for using it, but I would imagine
you would have to use the JAWS pass through key.

Is anyone using Netflix with JAWS 14 or 15? If so, can you select movies
and TV shows to watch? Can you pause and resume playback? Would you
recommend Netflix as an accessible source of movies and TV shows for screen
reader users?

They do have a free 1-month trial, and I may give it a try, but I thought

Jaws with DirecTV or Dish

Michael Baldwin
 

I have Dish now and have for several years. It seems there has been lots of
advancement in both companies receivers and such. Does one site over the
other have better Jaws accessibility? My current old receiver does not give
me access to a lot of the newer features that come with upgraded equipment.
I would like to be able to set the DVR to record, or play my own recorded
shows without having my sited wife do it all.

Experiences with both companies and their newer receivers with Jaws and
other technologies would be appreciated.

John:

I actually had control of the player for awhile. I was using Jaws 9 and Windows XP. When I upgraded to Jaws 15, I still hadd control. But the minute the first upgrade for Jaws was downloaded, all control was lost. VBut I had it for alittle while anyway.

As the subject line says, when I press enter on a link, in outlook, say one

able to copy the link as the url is not visible shall we say.
One other detail, the files of type shows asexe.


Re: internet explorer

Brad Martin
 

In truth, you could probably get away with JAWS 9 and IE 8 if you wanted to; I'm pretty sure I did that for a long time. Then again, if you have JAWS 11, it can't hurt to upgrade that too. If you are running Windows XP, IE 8 is as far as you can go, and it really is a good idea to upgrade. I'm actually find Firefox has been helpful for XP users (including sighted users) because IE 8 is so old and doesn't support HTML5 content, and all of Windows XP is losing support in April anyway.

Netflix Accessibility with JAWS

Gary King
 

Is anyone using Netflix with JAWS 14 or 15? If so, can you select movies and TV shows to watch? Can you pause and resume playback? Would you recommend Netflix as an accessible source of movies and TV shows for screen reader users?

They do have a free 1-month trial, and I may give it a try, but I thought I'd ask a few questions first just to make sure I'm not wasting my time.

Re: two commands, was Jaws and Memory Keystroke

Dean Martineau <dean@...>
 

The JAWS key is an all-encompassing name that takes into account that users
will either use insert, caps lock or even scroll lock as their modifier key
to carry out JAWS keystrokes. The term JAWSKey is a shorthand to avoid
having to get across the idea that you should use your designated modifier
key plus whatever other key(s to accomplish the desired action.

One thing JAWSKey+window+f4 does is create a log file as I understand.

I have a personal procedure. I don't know why it works, or if it is
entirely necessary. I frequently have lockups involving Internet Explorer,
and JAWS stops speaking. I can run System Access in the situation to regain
speech, but not everybody can do so, and I don't always want to do that. So
I press JAWS key+Windows+f4 repeatedly (it can be over twenty times) until I
hear a beep. Then I can restart JAWS and address whatever issue is going
on.

Re: Jaws and Memory Keystroke

Lee Maschmeyer
 

Remember that Ctrl+Alt+J will restart Jaws only if you've set it up yourself. It does not come by default with a Jaws installation.

The most reliable way to start Jaws is to use Windows+R and then type Jaws and the version number; i.e., jaws15. Then press Enter.

Subject: Windows 7 or 8

I am in the market for a new computer. Last I knew, with JFW 14 it was
better to stay with Windows 7. Is that still the case, or does JFW 15 work
pretty well with Windows 8.
I have JFW 10 now, so either way I will need to upgrade.

Thanks,
Michael

However, this is not an appropriate topic for a JAWS support list.

So who would like to tell me how this relates to the topic of the
list, which is JAWS for Windows. Just, you know, for curiosity's sake.

Subject: How to Make an Exe File

An Exe file, or a file with the ".exe" extension, is a type of
executable file commonly used with Windows operating systems. The Exe
file is one of the most useful files in Windows, as it is commonly
used to install or run programs. Nearly all installers will be
packaged as executables, and many small software programs (such as the
games included with Windows) run entirely out of Exe files. If you
need to package a program or a script for distribution or
installation, you will need to learn how to make an Exe file yourself.
Fortunately, Windows comes with a built-in utility for packaging
executables, and using it is fairly simple.

Steps
1. Run the iExpress application in Windows. IExpress is a utility that
is included with Windows, and it provides an easy way to package your
program as an executable. To run the program, press the "Start" button
and then click "Run." In the dialog box, type "iexpress.exe" and press
the Enter key.
If you use Windows Vista, you can just press the "Start" button and
begin typing "iexpress," and the program's icon will appear in the
search results.
2. Specify that you want to create a new executable. When the iExpress
program launches, you will be asked to choose between opening an
existing executable or creating a new one. Choose to create a new one
by selecting the radio button that reads, "Create new self extraction
directive file."
3. Specify the type of executable package you want to create. The next
screen will ask you to choose between 3 options for the action that
should be taken when a user opens your Exe file. The first is to
extract the files and then run an additional command (for instance, to
make changes to the registry).
The second is to extract the files only (this is the recommended option).
The third option is only applicable for distributing Active-X controls.
4. Give your installer package a title. The next screen will ask you
to specify the title for your executable package. This is not the
filename for the Exe file; this is the title that will appear across
the top of all windows opened by the installer.
5. Choose a confirmation prompt for your Exe file if desired. The next
screen in iExpress will allow you to specify a text prompt given to
the user upon opening the executable. If you don't wish to provide a
prompt, check the radio button that reads "No prompt."
6. Specify the license agreement governing the use of your executable.
The next screen will allow you to choose a license agreement for your
software. The installer will inform the user that the agreement you
pick governs the use of the software. To display a license agreement,
type the agreement into a plain text file (using the ".txt" extension)
and attach it after selecting the radio button reading, "Display a
license."
7. Select the files that your Exe file will install on the user's
computer.
The next screen will allow you to choose the files that your
executable should install; you can select as many or as few as needed.
Add a file by clicking the "Add" button and then navigating to the
file's location on your hard drive.
You will be able to see the files you've added in the iExpress window.
8. Specify the executable's filename. The next screen will ask you to
specify the filename for the Exe file; remember it must end with the
".exe"
extension.
This screen also includes a check box for either hiding or showing the
full extraction process to the user.
9. Create the executable.
. Click Next to create the package.
. Click the Finish button on the final iExpress screen to compile the
Exe file and save it in the location you specified. You can test the
executable by double-clicking on it to extract the files.
10. Another way to create EXE is ExeScript utility. Just make a simple
BAT or VBS script and convert to EXE.
