Problem Downloading Webvisum

Robbie Curtis
 

Hi All,

Recently I had to have my computer cleaned and returned to factory settings. In doing so I had to reinstall applications. When installing Firefox, I went to go download Webvisum. I pressed enter on the link to install but I am having trouble downloading the extension.

Has anyone else come across this problem, and if so, what steps can I take to rectify this? All assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You should press enter before you press 2.

You're not in forms mode. Pressing enter or spacebar should make it happen.

Hi Marianne,

If you hold down the alt key when you down arrow it should allow you
to read the choices without being taken to each and every one as you
move down the list.

Re: combo boxes

I think you want the alt+down arrow to open the combo box and the alt+up
arrow to close it once you have selected your item.

Re: track changes and Jaws & Word 2013

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Hi Kimberly. Thanks for re-posting this.

Lauren, as some additional info, try the following: While in MS Word, hit
INSERT+F1 twice quickly. This opens up the JAWS help topic specific to the
MS Word application. Follow the link labeled "Helpful Hints for Using JAWS
with Word". There, you'll find another link labeled "Track Changes". This
section is very informative.
-Paul

-----Original Message-----
Hi Lauren,

I've pasted below the text of a message from about a month ago on this
list.
It deals with this exact question.

If after reading it you have questions about how to modify your quick
access
toolbar, let me know. I received some rather good instructions from
another
list member and would be glad to share them.

What follows is that post:

I cleared the quick access toolbar of its defaults, then added the
following
commands:
- Previous change or comment.
- Next change or comment.
- Accept revision.
- Reject revision.
In that order, so you can execute them with alt+1, alt+2, alt+3, and alt+4
respectively.

I also customized the verbosity. INSERT+V to bring up JAWS settings in
word,
search for "track changes" and crank up the verbosity. Then search for
"comments" and do the same. After this change, just arrowing to a modified
line will tell you number of revisions and comments. Arrowing into
modified or tagged text will tell you date of change, who the author was,
etc. Very useful.

I also use INSERT+V to change the verbosity of how JAWS reads punctuation.
When dealing with track changes, you really want this set to "all", in my
opinion.

Another way to jump around is to turn on quick nav keys with INSERT+Z.
Then "r" moves to next revision, and "n" moves to next comment. But, in my
experience, it's easy to forget that quick nav is off, and you end up
inserting
a bunch of "r" and "n" characters all over the place. Beware.

Even if you can move to revisions, determining exactly what the change was
is rather a complex task. When JAWS tells you "paragraph style changed",
for example, you're left scratching your head as to exactly what was
changed.
Okay, to be fair, a sighted user has the same problem.

I may have missed some things, but that's the bulk of how I do track
changes. And I just discussed this about a week ago in this very list, so
you
might look back and check for posts in that thread. It might contain info
that
I failed to mention in this message.


Re: help with Google Docs

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Hm. I downloaded the MS Windows Google Docs app, and that lets me view my
Google Docs directory as if it were a part of the Windows filesystem (that
is, I can access Google Docs files using Windows Explorer).

But I've never had anyone share a doc with me using Google Docs, so I'm not
sure how shared docs would show up using this interface. But if you could
get this to work, then accessing the shared doc would be a no-brainer.
-Paul


Re: track changes and Jaws & Word 2013

Kevin Hourigan <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Hello Lauren,
With track changes on as Tim advises navigate to the revision, and when the cursor is on the change, press the applications key, and arrow down to accept or reject.
Cheers Kevin.

Hello Lauren,

AT least up through Word 2010, an easy way to display a clean version is an
old Word keyboard shortcut,
control plus shift plus the letter e. Depending on your JAWS verbosity
setting, JAWS will respond with "track changes on" or "track changes off",
or just "on" and "off". This command does not actually accept track
changes, it simply imbeds the track changes so you see just the text of the
document as it currently is. Very handy.

I do not remember how to accept track changes, but assume someone else on
this list does.

Hi:



How can I accept changes someone has made. I can hear Jaws say inserted or
deleted followed by what someone else has done to my document, but can't
figure out how to accept those changes so they become a seamless part of the
document?

I have very limited personal experience with Google Docs, but based on what

virus protection, sound and video editing

Deidre Muccio <deimucc@...>
 

Hello,
I will have a new computer set up soon. I will be running Windows 8.1, with
16 ggs RAM and a lot of storage space. I'll update to J16 Home.
Can anyone tell me what free virus protection should I consider using that
is accessible and would do a good job of protecting my new computer? I use
AVG on my current XP computer and though I might have some strange stuff
happen on occasion, I've never lost files or rarely have gotten mailings
from suspicious senders.

Also, I have used sound Recorder in years past to edit sound files. Is
anyone using it with J16 and Windows 8.1 and finding it easy to use?

Is anyone using a video editor that is accessible with J16? All I
would need to do is cut files up not embellish them in any way. I obviously
would need the audio to be running while I trimmed so I could know where to
trim based on that. I don't need a professional program to play with sound
quality or any of that though probably all the programs include that.

Thanks.

Deidre

Thanks, Ed. This is a 2003 document, now in My Documents on a computer with Office 2010. I did try using the Alt D, but that did not work. However for right now, the Control G and an arbitrary page number does work. Like you say, when one gets to that point, often it is hard to know the right page. Thanks.

I do not remember having this problem in Word 2003; however, I
know the Word 2010 control plus f command for find is a nasty,
awkward tool. I have not tried control plus f for years.
You might try this in Word 2003 too. I know this works in Word
2010. I use it 25 times a day.
Instead of using control plus f, instead use control plus h
followed immediately by alt plus d.
Type in your word, wait for the find, and hit escape (or tab to
"cancel search."
It works every time. To find subsequent occurrences, just use
shift plus F4.
