Charles:

The computer I'm currently using is a Windows XP machine.

However, I am getting a laptop with windows 7 up and running on Jaws, so maybe I can try your suggestion shortly.

Thanks very much!

Tom from Michigan

Tom,

There is an application under Win 7 and Vista Accessories called "snipping
tool" that may be of help in extracting data from power point. It can be
used to take screen snapshots such as graphics, text, and associated
anitations.
I have not used this program but you can find more info from windows 7 help
and support link.

I don't know where to get Jamal's text pal, but your second suggestion about
the outline may do the trick for now.

Thanks!

The very best way is to use Jamal Mazrui's TextPal. The next best way is
to f6 to outline view, select all, then copy and paste it to a new
document.

Good luck!

Hi, everyone.

Can someone tell me the easiest way to extract and save the text from the
slides in a powerpoint presentation?

I have a powerpoint presentation here from work, and all I need is the
text content for future reference.

As best as I can tell, the presentation is done in Office 2007 powerpoint
format.

Thanks!

Thank you david i think I understand,I seem to get stuck in dialogue boxes
,escape and then still cannot escape if this dell inspire desktop is not put

made such a fuss,they were xp. Re safe mode when my old xp died I was
downloading jaws 11, when I say died it would try to load up,a couple of
people said"you should have told him to try to repair it in safe mode I
imagine that maybe the kindof safe mode the list is discussing. The engineer
said jaws 11 coming in must havehit a bit of the hardrive that was damaged
it is good windows 7 is just coming out isn't it and you have an external
back up"letme custom make you a windows 7 machine for only one thousand
pound 2 friends said"let us look for a good one on line hence I got the
dell windows7 64 bit, which as listmay recaull had a hd failure after 10
months yes it was under warranty,but that is another story!!

Hello there;

I just want you to no,

Working in safe mode, with MSOutlook, is way different then working in safe
mode, from boot up.

MSOutlook, will ask you, if you want to work in safe mode, especially, if
there has been an issue with the outlook files.
Generally, if you say yes to work in safe mode, outlook will perform
correctly.

However, if you close outlook, and restart the program, outlook will
Go back to working correctly.
However, working in safe mode from boot up, is way different, you have no
speech, no drivers are loaded.

I have just read about safe mode on this list,I did not know security was
at risk if using it. I only use it under following circumstances, example
for some reason my windows 7 laptop using ms outlook,seems to get stuck in a
dialogue box, and I cannot escape,eventually i try closing down the machine
a dell 64 bit,but it hangs,so I have to pressin button on tower for a while
Later on reloading the machine complains it ms outlook was not treated well
and says to work in safe mode to , it offers this option even though it
assumes I am going to say No, that is get it right, whilst I hear it suggest
safe mode jaws seems to want to choose the No option,eventually I run it in
safe mode for a while then try to close it down. Are you saying if I tried
to log onto web at any point I am putting my computer at risk,or is it at
risk anytime in safe mode? Many thanks dorothy

Hi, if you bring the rtf into word you can highlight the document and apply a basic style such as the "normal" style. This should stop the chatter unless there is other formatting that you want to hear.

Hi, Kirsten.

I tried the RTF option yesterday, and, although the text was there and in
the correct order as you suggest, Jaws kept reading heading information at
the beginning of just about every line, which made reading and understanding
the text very difficult.

If you open the powerpoint and then go to the save dialog box, tab to the
type/format box and arrow down you should be able to save it as an RTF doc
which will give you all the text from all the slides in the right order.
Before I discovered this I used to have to copy and paste the text out of
the slides, but this is much quicker. I use 2007 so if that is what you
have
it definitely works.

Re: Extracting text from powerpoint presentation

Tom, I have no experience with PowerPoint, but can't you copy the RTF text,
whether directly or after going into virtual window mode with JAWS
key-alt-w? Then you could eliminate the "heading" verbalization.

As for finding Jamal's Text Pal, there's always google.

Re: Eudora 7.1.0.9 Download Link

Ben Humphreys <brh@...>
 

To the best of my recollection, Eudora supported three modes of operation: a slightly crippled light mode, a more functional sponsored mode with ads, and a full mode which cost money but was free of ads and contained all functionality.

To enable full mode, click "Payment and registration" on the Help menu and from there you can enter a registration code to unlock the full mode.

When Qualcom discontinued Eudora development, they released a generic registration code, provided below, to unlock full mode without payment.

Paul,
I have had no experience with the unlock procedure but have installed Eudora on a number of computers. It has always worked for me! I've not taken any of the extra things that are offered and I have wound up with a working Eudora with a short cut on the desktop. So you would likely be okay with the installation. And great for a person's self confidence.

Hello Ben and all,

I would regard myself as a computing beginner in many ways, so please forgive me if this sounds rather simple. I have 2 questions:

1. Does the link given for Eudora below, download the program to the Desktop, to be installed later, or does the link initiate the installation process? My reason for asking is, that if it is the latter, and something goes wrong, I have to wait quite some time before sighted assistance can rescue matters. My one and only previous attempt to install a program failed badly, causing total laptop failure, which sighted help eventually put right.

2. What does the phrase, "unlock the full mode", mean, and as this sounds like action must be taken, can you outline the stepsplease?

While Eudora lives on in open-source, the last version produced by
Qualcom is Eudora 7.1.0.9 and that version is very accessible with
JAWS, something that I do not believe is true of the newer
open-source versions.

Happily, Eudora 7.1.0.9 works fine with Windows 7 and Qualcom has
graciously provided the following code to unlock the full mode without cost:

Re: calcuator

Ben Humphreys <brh@...>
 

It's a valid JAWS question because much of the functionality of the calculator is locked away behind mouse clickable buttons on the display. Fortunately, there are about 90 keyboard shortcuts available to overcome this problem.

See the following article on how to locate these keyboard shortcuts

http://superuser.com/questions/274264/windows-calculator-shortcut-keys

Briefly, hitF1, tab to Shortcut Keys and hit Enter, then tab around until you get to the windows calculator shortcut keys, which contains a table of 2 columns by 90 rows, at least in Windows 7 help.

Re: safe mode

David <davidwhitehead1957@...>
 

Hello there;

I just want you to no,

Working in safe mode, with MSOutlook, is way different then working in safe
mode, from boot up.

MSOutlook, will ask you, if you want to work in safe mode, especially, if
there has been an issue with the outlook files.
Generally, if you say yes to work in safe mode, outlook will perform
correctly.

However, if you close outlook, and restart the program, outlook will
Go back to working correctly.
However, working in safe mode from boot up, is way different, you have no
speech, no drivers are loaded.

a dell 64 bit,but it hangs,so I have to pressin button on tower for a while
Later on reloading the machine complains it ms outlook was not treated well
and says to work in safe mode to , it offers this option even though it
assumes I am going to say No, that is get it right, whilst I hear it suggest
safe mode jaws seems to want to choose the No option,eventually I run it in
safe mode for a while then try to close it down. Are you saying if I tried
to log onto web at any point I am putting my computer at risk,or is it at
risk anytime in safe mode? Many thanks dorothy

Re: Extracting text from powerpoint presentation

Kirsten Edmondson <kirsten.edmondson@...>
 

If you open the powerpoint and then go to the save dialog box, tab to the
type/format box and arrow down you should be able to save it as an RTF doc
which will give you all the text from all the slides in the right order.
Before I discovered this I used to have to copy and paste the text out of
the slides, but this is much quicker. I use 2007 so if that is what you have
it definitely works.

Subject: Extracting text from powerpoint presentation

Hi, everyone.

Can someone tell me the easiest way to extract and save the text from the
slides in a powerpoint presentation?

I have a powerpoint presentation here from work, and all I need is the text
content for future reference.

As best as I can tell, the presentation is done in Office 2007 powerpoint
format.

Thanks!

Tom Behler in Michigan
