Re: Mail programs with 8.1

Brad Martin
 

Windows may not "come with" a mail program, but a lot of computer manufacturers include Windows Live Essentials, including Mail. If not, it's a free download from Microsoft. Personally, I've switched to Thunderbird when I got my Windows 7 computer recently. I love it. The keystrokes are a little different, but honestly it took me a few days to be comfortable with it. And it has a normal menu bar!

Oh, thank you. WLM comes with 8.1, right? I was told that I'd have to find a mail client because 8.1 didn't come with its own mail program, so just want to make sure in advance. I'll probably get a new computer within a week or so and it's stressing me out already. *Sigh!*

I will go with the WLM option, then, unless someone else has any other/better ideas. Thanks for your help.

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

Dave Durber
 

Ted:

You most definitely cannot install a 32 BIT version of JAWS on a 64 BIT system. If you attempt to do so, JAWS displays a message informing you that you need to run a 64 BIT version of JAWS. I know this because, when I purchased my 64 BIT HP Laptop, I accidentally launched the 32 BIT version of JAWS from my thumb drive.

HTH

Simcerely:

Re: Excel Title Reading

Dave Maynard <dmaynard35@...>
 

Hi Ed;

I have the same setup you have and have spent numerous hours trying to get
this feature to work as described. Even Eric D. at FS doesn't use it. Eric
recently posted the following regarding a check book feature.


Get the file from:
http://www.jaws-users.com/text/Office/Sample-checkbook-register.html

1. Save the file and give it a name you wish to use.
2. Now open the newly named file in Excel and move to Column A, Row 4, (this
is the intersection of the row and column headings and the next step is to
inform JAWS of that).
3. Press Insert + V to get into Quick Settings of JAWS for Excel.
4. Press the letter T, and then down arrow to the item that says "Define
Name Column and Row Titles Override Off".
5. Press Space Bar a couple of times so the item above is set to "On for the
Current File".
6. Now down arrow a few times to the item called: "Column Titles to Row
Range". Press Space and you should hear it reflect 4, since you were on row
4.
7. Now down arrow once to the item called: "Row Titles to Column Range".
Press Space and you should hear it reflect A, since you were in column A.
8. Tab 3 times now to the OK button and press enter to dismiss the Dialog
and you are done.

In the future, anytime you open a spread sheet with the name you gave this
one, it will assume that Row 4 has the column headings and Column A has the
row headings. If you are moving around in the area below and to the right of
that intersecting point, it should read the headings as you navigate to make
it easier to understand where you are.

Hope this Helps,
Eric


Try it. It works.

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

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.

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: Jaws dropping my braille display

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Ann, when you say remains idle, do you mean going into one of the power management modes? I found that powering down under Windows 7 had some annoying side effects, forcing me to reboot, so I turned off power management. In this case, It's really not easy being green. Come to think of it, we don't use it at work either; We freeze our screens for security, but that's it.

Thanks for confirming this, Ann. Though it isn't a good sign that FS recommends a course of action that doesn't work, at least I know now that the behavior isn't particular to my display. Incidentally, pressing a key on the display doesn't work for me either.

I think I will email FS tech support just to have it documented. Can't hurt, right?

Indeed, I have. With my Focus Forty Blue (connected with USB), If the

JAWS or unplugging/plugging the display restores focus. FS tech
support said just to push one of the buttons on the display and that
would wake it up. It doesn't.

Hi All,

Recently I've noticed some strange behavior with Jaws 15 and my Focus
80 braille display. From time to time, Jaws seems to lose track of the
Focus display causing it to go blank as it does when the computer is
shut down. The only way to wake it up again, so to speak, is to quit
Jaws then reload.

I should also mention this is a USB display and not the Bluetooth
model. The machine is windows 7 64 byt.

Has anyone seen this behavior?

Thanks
Kimber

Re: Excel Title Reading

Kimber Gardner
 

Hi Ed,

I've done this successfully in excel 2003, but for whatever reason,
can't get it to work in excel 2010.

I have an old post in which someone suggests pressing the key
combination jaws key plus alt plus control plus C to enable column
header reading. I don't know about you, but I don't seem to have the
necessary finger dexterity to accomplish this combination, so can't
say whether it works.

As for the define names function in excel, I have no idea why it isn't
working as advertized. I would be interested to know if you get it to
work.

Re: Excel Title Reading

Feliciano G
 

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.

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?
