Re: Copying tables

Dave...
 

I don't think so. Tables usually end up trashed when copied and pasted. If
you can save the PDF as a Microsoft Word document, then it may preserve the
table formatting.

Hi all:
Is there a way to copy any table and a fillable PDF file to another
document?
Instead of typing it all out again?
I am using jaws 14 and Windows 7.

I uninstalled programs from my drive that I no longer use, including older
versions of Jaws. I used the Windows 7 Add/Remove Programs utility. My
drive was not completely full, but apparently it was full enough to cause
disruption with the Jaws 16 installation. The only Jaws 16 component not
installed was the OCR feature. I work in state government, and my tech
support person was the one to hit on the problem. Once I removed several
programs I was no longer using, all was fine. Oh, BTW, we did clean out
data in cache and temporary folders, too. I had a huge amount of data in
GPS maps from over the past several years. Some of the data I removed
manually. For others, I used the drive clean feature in the properties for
my drive. So, the drive clean-up focused on both programs and data. Hope
this additional info helps.

Re: How is Windows 10 so far?

I think you have faced this problem due to mirror display driver not
installed. Try installing the same from JAWS 15 setup and try again. I
came across this situation in Win 8.1.

Mike,

I've seen this with PDF files created by others, so it's not necessarily
something you're doing wrong. Reading the rendered document very often does
result in words being glued together, and I'm not sure if they were
originally separated by line breaks.

Best solution I've found is to use Freedom Import Printer to render into
text.

But again I think your document is fine, even if it reads weird. Have you
printed it and checked with Openbook, or showed to a sighted person?

Hi folks! I'm having an issue with creating an accessible PDF document. I
am able to create the document, and save it as a PDF file. When I pull up
the PDF file, JAWS reads it, but I'm noticing that the words are run
together, and JAWS tries to pronounce the words as one word, because there
is no space between the two or three words. It appears that JAWS is reading
this correctly. My concern is that somehow in the translation, the words
are being run together. How do you keep this from happening? Is there a
way to make these words have spaces between them?

PDF Forms

Sharon Clark
 

Hello,

I have a PDF form for work that I need to be updated to JAWS friendly. Does
anyone know of a company that I can hire to complete this project?

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Outlook 2010 searches

Dear David and All,

The Control-Shift-F feature is outstanding; it works perfectly in Outlook
2013, and unlike Instant Search, it works inside my iCloud account as well.
Thank you so much for posting this information; it will make life a lot
easier.

Hello there;
This may help some using outlook 2007&2010;


Using Find In MSOutlook2007&2010 Using Jaws Locating All Messages By One
Sender:
This will work in any mailbox E.g., in-box, sent-box etc.
1. Press ctrl+shift+the letter "f"=advance-find.
2. Tab three times=from....edit.
3. Type in a sender's first or last name.
4. Press enter.
5. Press the f6key and you are put into the list of messages by the sender
you searched for.
6. If you open a message to read it, press escape once to close it. Then
move to the next one to read.
7. If you open a message to read and do not wish to read any more, press
escape twice and you are placed back in to the original location were the
search was started. This means if you were in the in-box when starting the
search, pressing escape twice will return you back to the in-box. Pressing
escape once will only return you to the list of messages found in the
search.

***

II. Searching For A Specific Topic In A Subject Field:
1. Press ctrl+shift+the letter "f".

2. Type a word that would be found in the subject line you are searching
for.

3. Press enter.

4. Press f6 and you are put into the list of messages containing the subject
line searched for.

5. If you open a message to read it, press escape once to close it. Then
move to the next one to read.

6. If you open a message to read and do not wish to read any more, press
escape twice and you are placed back in to the original location were the
search was started. This means if you were in the in-box when starting the
search, pressing escape twice will return you back to the in-box. Pressing
escape once will only return you to the list of messages found in the
search.

another way to do this is,

example,
within the inbox,
ctrl+e= edit search,
now type in the search word,

now, shift+tab twice,
you will see the list of messages pertaining to the search criteria


another way is;
from inside the inbox for example, press the f3key,
type in search criteria,
shift+tab to the results.

hope this helps.

Hi all. The other day someone posted instructions on searching email inbox
items. It was said one way was to use the start key and edit field to enter
searchable items. I found this works but cannot do anything with the list
of items found. Cant open any of the emails or delete them. Though I went
through the steps to do each. Am I missing something or what can the start
key edit field search engine be used for?

Re: Issue with creating accessible PDF files.

Dave...
 

Mike,

I've seen this with PDF files created by others, so it's not necessarily
something you're doing wrong. Reading the rendered document very often does
result in words being glued together, and I'm not sure if they were
originally separated by line breaks.

Best solution I've found is to use Freedom Import Printer to render into
text.

But again I think your document is fine, even if it reads weird. Have you
printed it and checked with Openbook, or showed to a sighted person?

Subject: Issue with creating accessible PDF files.


Hi folks! I'm having an issue with creating an accessible PDF document. I
am able to create the document, and save it as a PDF file. When I pull up
the PDF file, JAWS reads it, but I'm noticing that the words are run
together, and JAWS tries to pronounce the words as one word, because there
is no space between the two or three words. It appears that JAWS is reading
this correctly. My concern is that somehow in the translation, the words
are being run together. How do you keep this from happening? Is there a
way to make these words have spaces between them?
