Re: SayAll in JAWS15 changing voices

Ann Byrne
 

It changed in every application. I called FS tech support, because I couldn't find a place to fix it. They said delete the profile and set it up again. I did, and that fixed it.

Re: Excel Title Reading

Kevin Hourigan <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Hello Ed,
I was unsuccessful with the instructions of naming the table while the cursor is in the top left hand cell of the table sometimes as well. I have found that placing the cursor in the Colum or row with the headers, and Pressing insert plus control plus alt, and c if it is a Colum or r if it is a row works well. It's a bit of a finger stretch, but effective.

Subject: Excel Title Reading

Listers:

I would like to have JAWS read column and row titles automatically
as I arrow through a template spreadsheet. I went through Dan
Clark's explanation from the Freedom Scientific training materials
twice, and I still cannot make this work.

First, let me make it clear that this spreadsheet gets bounced
around a bit. So, using the "quick settings" approach doesn't
work for my situation reliably. So, I'm trying to use Excel and
JAWS to enter labels that will stick with the template spreadsheet
wherever it resides on my computer/network.

Second, I actually think Dan Clark may be skipping a step, but I
have such limited familiarity with Excel that I'm not sure. In
his training session, he opens up a training spreadsheet, goes to
the row/column intersecting cell (top left) and then, in Excel
2010, hits alt plus m followed by m. When he does so, the region
title edit field contains a number of words joined together by
underline characters. Dan points out that you cannot use spaces
in this thing, which I'll call a region title. Interestingly, Dan
never mentions how Excel generates this title for the region. I
just get the contents of the top left cell.

He then proceeds to type in a new title. In that case, he enters
TitleRegion1..F8. Now, I know he is able to skip the top left
coordinate because his cursor was sitting in the top left
coordinate when he undertook the naming process. Of course, after
he hits ENTER, the row and column headings read just fine.
Nothing like that happens for me.

By the way, I'm using JAWS 15, Excel 2010, and Windows 7.

Here is where I think the problem is.

In my little spreadsheet, A3 is "ClientName"; B3 is
"ClientNumber"; C3 is "MatterName"; D3 is "MatterNumber"; E3 is
"Time"; and F3 is "Description".

There is nothing in Column A below A3. That gets filled in with
the client names.

When I hit Alt plus m and then m, instead of getting some name
separated with a bunch of underline characters, all I get is
"ClientName," which is the column title for column A.

I think the region may need to be named before I assign the
"TitleRegion1" followed by the region's coordinates. I think Dan
must have skipped a step, something that had already been done to
his training spreadsheet.

I guess the other problem might be that, unlike his sample
spreadsheet, I do not have all the row titles filled in when I
enter the name.

I don't use Excel all that often, but this little spreadsheet
could be helpful - if it worked.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Re: Excel Title Reading

I entered a last row number past where I expected to be. I suppose you could put in row 1 million something, but I wouldn't. I just put a3 and f20.

1. Determine the region you want to titles for.

3. For column and row titles, type title
4. without a space, type the period (punctuation mark).
5.Type the first cell of the range you want titles spoken for.
6. Without a space, type another period.
7. Type the end of the range and press enter.

The command, to label row and column titles for a3:f20 would look like
this:

title.a3.f20

Good luck!

Re: authorizing jaws on a flash drive on a computer:

You can certainly do an installation from a thumb drive, but I see one problem right off the bat. You have two nonmatching OS's. You can probably run 32-bit JAWS on your 64-bit system (though I've never tried), but not the other way round.

Try pressing the Insert and Control keys with your right hand and using your

Place the focus on the first column of the role that you want to have Jaws read. Then press insert plus V. Type in the word title then you want to enable read colum titles by pressing the space bar once below that you should have title reading and press the spacebar once again then tap to ok. and press enter now as you move from left to right below these jaws Will read the titles.

First, let me make it clear that this spreadsheet gets bounced
around a bit. So, using the "quick settings" approach doesn't
work for my situation reliably. So, I'm trying to use Excel and
JAWS to enter labels that will stick with the template spreadsheet
wherever it resides on my computer/network.

Second, I actually think Dan Clark may be skipping a step, but I
have such limited familiarity with Excel that I'm not sure. In
his training session, he opens up a training spreadsheet, goes to
the row/column intersecting cell (top left) and then, in Excel
2010, hits alt plus m followed by m. When he does so, the region
title edit field contains a number of words joined together by
underline characters. Dan points out that you cannot use spaces
in this thing, which I'll call a region title. Interestingly, Dan
never mentions how Excel generates this title for the region. I
just get the contents of the top left cell.

He then proceeds to type in a new title. In that case, he enters
TitleRegion1..F8. Now, I know he is able to skip the top left
coordinate because his cursor was sitting in the top left
coordinate when he undertook the naming process. Of course, after
he hits ENTER, the row and column headings read just fine.
Nothing like that happens for me.

By the way, I'm using JAWS 15, Excel 2010, and Windows 7.

Here is where I think the problem is.

In my little spreadsheet, A3 is "ClientName"; B3 is
"ClientNumber"; C3 is "MatterName"; D3 is "MatterNumber"; E3 is
"Time"; and F3 is "Description".

There is nothing in Column A below A3. That gets filled in with
the client names.

When I hit Alt plus m and then m, instead of getting some name
separated with a bunch of underline characters, all I get is
"ClientName," which is the column title for column A.

I think the region may need to be named before I assign the
"TitleRegion1" followed by the region's coordinates. I think Dan
must have skipped a step, something that had already been done to
his training spreadsheet.

I guess the other problem might be that, unlike his sample
spreadsheet, I do not have all the row titles filled in when I
enter the name.

I don't use Excel all that often, but this little spreadsheet
could be helpful - if it worked.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Excel Title Reading

Ed Marquette <marquette.ed@...>
 

Listers:

I would like to have JAWS read column and row titles automatically
as I arrow through a template spreadsheet. I went through Dan
Clark's explanation from the Freedom Scientific training materials
twice, and I still cannot make this work.

brailliant paring issues

Lovette Yewchan <lyewchan@...>
 

Hi there.
I cannot seem to get the brailliant to stay connected with jaws via blue tooth.
It shows up in the devices section but nothing really to edit there.
I've tried with the brailliant set to auto and bluetooth and neither is making a difference.
Any ideas?
Lovette


Re: Firefox issue

Mario
 

finally... I tried virtualizing with insert+alt+w but JAWS keeps repeating "about dialog" with a down or up arrow key press. so it looks like something else is wrong?

Hi, Mario. What I do in this situation is to use the keystroke which virtualizes the JAWS window to check the update.

For JAWS11 and below this keystroke is ALT plus INSERT plus W. For JAWS12 and above it is
CTRL plus INSERT plus W.

Using this keystroke, you may then be able to arrow through the screen as if it were a text page.

HTH.

hi gang, I recently installed Firefox on a new computer but am having a problem. I can browse just fine but for example, when I check for updates, in the help menu then about, the PCCursor focuses on the check for updates button, but I can't route JAWS to PC so I can find out if the update is current or proceeding.
I had the same problem when I was using Firefox on the old XP computer but remember I pressed f11 to turn off full screen, and a few other things like unchecking the developer toolbar. but these two settings are already unchecked in the new install.

I need help to fix the new computer install of FF. any suggestions/recommendations would be appreciated.
