22. You may also give a date for deleting mail as in the folloing example:

In the "Has the words" field, type before:2010/01/01. This will delete all mail received before this date.

Hello list,

I’m trying to submit some information for a vendor client consisting of a
bunch of zip codes and cities. My spreadsheet is in landscape mode made up
of four sets of two columns. I.E. columns A,B D,E F,G etc. With thirty or so
rows in each column.

I’ve deleted some zips and cities leaving some cells blank and would like to
remove all empty gaps to further condense the table, but can’t figure out
how to do it without messing up the rest of the formatting. I can’t simply
delete the entire row as there are other zips and cities on other rows that
I still wish to have and deleting the empty cells makes the other cells run
into each other.

I’m sure I’m missing something pretty easy, but can’t for the life of me hit
on it. I’m using Jaws 16 and Excel 2010.

Can someone enlighten me or refresh my memory.



Thanks,

Cristobal

Facebook Accessibility for Users with Visual Impairments: What Facebook
Wants You to Know, by Bill Holton





Reprinted with permission from "AccessWorld," vol. 16 no. 4, April 2015.



Facebook is an excellent way to keep in touch with friends and family. For
users of computer and mobile access technologies, however, at times, there
can be challenges. The company continuously evolves its products, which can
introduce changes to screen-reader flow. So, in order to help readers more
fully enjoy their Facebook experience, we are excited to offer the following
information.



Thanks to consumer feedback, and working with several organizations,
including the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB), Facebook has taken
accessibility to a whole new level. In July of 2011, the company formed the
Facebook Accessibility Team to improve its support of accessibility across
products. Recently, AccessWorld spoke with team founder Jeff Wieland and
accessibility engineer Ramya Sethuraman, who offered us a top-10 list of
things they'd like readers to know about Facebook's accessibility program
and products.



Facebook Offers Extensive Keyboard Navigation



For computer users who do not use a mouse, including most screen-reader
users, the main Facebook web site makes extensive use of headings,
landmarks, and lists, which can be easily navigated with your screen-reader
navigation keys. Additionally, the main Facebook web site also offers an
extensive roster of Access and Shortcut keys to help you navigate the site
and quickly perform actions, such as liking, searching, and sharing.



Access Keys



"Access keys let you jump quickly from page to page [within Facebook] with a
single key combination and without having to tab down to or search for the
appropriate control," says Wieland.



Key combinations vary by browser and/or system:

. Chrome for PC users combine the ALT key with the access keys listed below.

. IE users combine the ALT key with the access keys listed below, completing
each command by pressing the Enter key.

. Firefox for PC users press Shift + ALT in combination with the access keys
listed below.

. Mac users press Control + Option in combination with the command keys
below.



Facebook Access Keys

. Home: 1

. Timeline: 2

. Friends: 3

. Inbox: 4

. Notifications: 5

. Settings: 6

. Activity Log: 7

. About: 8

. Terms: 9

. Help: 0



Shortcut Keys



Much the same way as most screen readers offer single-key navigation
shortcuts to help you quickly find your way around a web page, Facebook
offers a number of single-key commands to perform various actions. Many of
these shortcut keys conflict with browser keys, however, so for now, at
least, you will have to either use your screen reader pass-through command,
or turn off enhanced browser navigation (Forms Mode in JAWS, Focus Mode in
NVDA, and Browser Mode in Window-Eyes).



"If you happen to be in an edit box, or on some other pop-up control, you
may have to tab away or close the dialogue before using the shortcuts," says
Wieland.



Facebook News Feed Shortcuts

. Scroll forward through News Feed stories: j

. Scroll backward through News Feed stories: k

. See more of the selected story: Enter/Return

. Post a new status: p

. Like or unlike the selected story: l

. Comment on the selected story: c

. Share the selected story: s

. Open an attachment from the selected story: o

. Search: /

. Search chat contacts: q

. Open a list of these keyboard shortcuts while in News Feed: ?



Facebook Messenger Shortcuts

. Search conversations: CTRL + g

. Show/hide keyboard shortcuts: CTRL + q

. Archive/unarchive conversation: CTRL + Delete

. Mark as spam: CTRL + j

. Start a new message: CTRL + m

. Go to Inbox: CTRL + i

. Go to Other: CTRL + u



Facebook Is Making Photos and Videos More Accessible



"We're still rolling out the Dynamic Alt Text Generator to more products
that will improve the accessibility of both photos and videos," says
Wieland. "We gather all the metadata a user supplies and combine it to
generate a caption that tells a more complete story about that." This
Facebook Design video shows voicing for photos and videos before and after
Dynamic Alt Text captioning:
https://www.facebook.com/accessibility/posts/441575089212506 (link is
external).



Check out the Mobile Apps for Facebook



Facebook offers a mobile site, but Wieland encourages iOS and Android
screen-reader users to try the native apps for these operating systems.
"We've put a lot of work into improving the accessibility of the Facebook
and Facebook Messenger native apps, and in some cases we can build
accessibility experiences in these applications we simply can't easily
replicate on the web (like use of gestures)," he says.



When you have finished reading a timeline entry using the iOS app, for
example, you can now perform a two-finger double-tap to summon a VoiceOver
menu, which includes options to like the post, comment, turn on
notifications, or indicate "I don't want to see this" (which will hide the
story). The two-finger scrub gesture also now works to close any pop-up or
dialogue screen. The Facebook Messenger iOS app also now includes an action
item on the rotor. Perform a one-finger swipe up to delete a message thread,
mute a conversation, archive a conversation and more.



It's Easy to Contact Facebook



"Facebook offers several ways to get in touch with the Accessibility Team,
and we love getting your feedback," states Wieland. Users can like the
Facebook Access for People with Disabilities page
(https://www.facebook.com/accessibility (link is external)) to stay up to
date on accessibility work and improvements, visit the Facebook
Accessibility Help Center
(https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/169372943117927 (link is external)),
and follow the Facebook Accessibility Team (@fbaccess) on Twitter. The
Accessibility Help Center offers an accessibility bug report contact form
where you can report accessibility issues.



Spreading the Accessibility Message to Other Facebook Employees



In October of 2014, the Accessibility Team launched an installation at
Facebook Menlo Park, Calif. headquarters called the Empathy Lab. The lab is
designed to showcase the different and various methods that people use to
interact with Facebook and broaden the company's understanding of how to
build products that are both usable to those with limited bandwidth and
accessible to screen-reader users.



"We're hoping to give Facebook employees an idea of what it's like to use
Facebook with magnification or a screen reader. We do this with a collection
of laptops and mobile devices which can only be used with a keyboard or
using screen readers or on slow network connections," says Ramya Sethuraman.
"The installation has become so popular, we're looking to expand it to other
campuses so more members of the Facebook team can experience it."



The Facebook Team Is Constantly Improving the Accessible Facebook Experience



Below Wieland outlines just a few of Facebook's recent accessibility
enhancements.

. You now have the ability to control font size in the iOS Messenger app.

. New VoiceOver gestures were added to help people more easily access the
Delete, Mute, and More actions within iOS Messenger.

. New access keys were added to the mobile site.

. A "Skip to News Feed" link was added to Facebook for people using just the
keyboard and screen readers to easily jump to the News Feed stories.

. We now support multilingual caption files for Facebook Videos so you can
provide subtitles for all of your video content.



Facebook Will Keep You Updated



Every month the team posts a comprehensive review of the key accessibility
changes and enhancements. You can find the February 2015 update at
https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-accessibility/february-2015-mont...
(link is external). The 2014 year in review is available at
https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-accessibility/2014-year-in-revie...
(link is external).



"Follow our Facebook page so you don't miss any future updates," Wieland
suggests. The URL is https://www.facebook.com/accessibility (link is
external).



Facebook Wants Your Help



Facebook has a dedicated User Experience Research team that runs many
different kinds of studies, including in-house usability studies and phone
interviews with people who use their products.



"Our last round of accessibility usability testing focused on TalkBack with
Facebook for Android," relates Wieland.



If you would like to be considered for participation in future studies and
getting paid for your feedback, send an e-mail to the accessibility research
team, accessibilityresearch@fb.com (link sends e-mail).



Accessibility Beyond Facebook



"The Facebook Accessibility Team is passionate about making accessibility
more mainstream, and one of our top priorities is to introduce accessibility
to new audiences," says Sethuraman. "For instance, last year we spoke at
Stanford University to introduce students to writing accessible code. We
also gave a talk on web accessibility basics at the Grace Hopper
Conference."



In addition, the Facebook Accessibility team actively consults and
collaborates with various disability organizations. Notes Wieland, "Last
year we sponsored and spoke at the American Foundation for the Blind's
Leadership Conference. We also sponsored the American Council of the Blind's
summer conference in Las Vegas. We recently joined the American Association
of People with Disabilities Tech Forum and are excited about collaborating
with industry leaders on a range of accessibility related initiatives."



For Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), Facebook hosted companies
from the Bay Area for a round of lightning talks on accessibility
implementations. Guests included the co-founders of GAAD, Jennison Asuncion
and Joe Devon.



Facebook Is Hiring!



"We recently grew our dedicated accessibility engineering team, and we are
still hiring," says Wieland. "We are actively looking for an accessibility
specialist." You can read more about the position on Facebook's careers
page.

Re: Outlook 2003 attachments

Kimber Gardner
 

This problem isn't unique to outlook 2003 as I still have it with 2010
and 2013. In fact someone just sent me an attachment this morning that
I couldn't access no matter what I tried.

I seem to recall someone (maybe on this list) saying that you could
forward the email to yourself, changing the email from html to
something else before sending and get to the attachment that way. I
never had much success with that method either.

I will try your method using the jaws cursor.

Thanks,
Kimber

Hi all. I'm working with a client using Office 2003 and the current version
of JAWS. The client is having trouble accessing email attachments. I've
never used JAWS with Office 2003, so I'm unsure how to do this. Here's what
I've tried, and the problems I've ran into.

After opening an email with an attachment, I did a shift-tab to try to move
to the attachments area of the message window. This doesn't work when the
email is in HTML format. Instead, shift-tab moves me backwards through the
links in the message body.

To resolve the shift-tab issue, I went into email options and set it to
display all email as plain text. After this change, shift-tab does allow me
to move to the attachments area. However, in the case of multiple
attachments, there is no trivial way to move to a specific attachment
(arrow
keys don't do this).

I was able to eventually open a specific attachment, by switching to the
JAWS cursor, control-arrow to a specific attachment, then invoke a double
left click with numpad-/. While this does work for me, my client lacks the
JAWS expertise to manage this on her own, and we don't have the training
budget for me to take her through the necessary curriculum.

The only other option I'm aware of would be to go to the file menu and save
attachments. Then she would simply open them from the saved location. This
is a less direct solution than the client would prefer.

Any ideas on opening attachments in Word 2003? All help would be
appreciated.

The surfus is probably your best one. As it comes with keyboard as far
as I know, and the touch screen of corse. But its so expensive I
rather by an ipad when it comes to that price, unless if you know you
need windows.

Hi Michael,

I've helped a few of my clients with these so let me give you a couple of
tips. Make sure the tablet has at least two gb of ram. Less will be really
slow. I don't know if the storage will make any difference, so choose what
will fit your needs. I'd probably do 64 myself though. Also, remember that
you will need a keyboard of some kind unless you are using a Braille
display. I hope this helps.

Hi folks! I am in the market for a new Tablet PC, and wanted to hear some
feedback from those of you who use JAWS on one of these. I've seen some
pretty good deals on Tablets recently, but wonder which one would be the
best. I know that I want Windows 8.1 and not RT. Does it really make a
big
difference if I end up with a 32 Gig machine or a 64. Does JAWS perform
poorly on one model or another? Just trying to make the best choice. Any
feedback would be welcomed. Many thanks!

Re: Facebook Accessibility for Users with Visual Impairments

Aidan <aidan.smarttalk@...>
 

I don't care what life is or not. Fact is that facebook don't do their
job when it comes to accessibility. There is always excuses for them
and Microsoft, while the proofe is there that they don't care at all.
Facebook fix some things and then brake others. They stil don't do
enough. And neither Microsoft. And that is why we shell keep paying
fru our necks for jaws upgrades. So they can have a great life. As far
as I know, the shortcuts in jaws 16 work on the full site.

Facebook Accessibility for Users with Visual Impairments: What Facebook
Wants You to Know, by Bill Holton





Reprinted with permission from "AccessWorld," vol. 16 no. 4, April 2015.



Facebook is an excellent way to keep in touch with friends and family. For
users of computer and mobile access technologies, however, at times, there
can be challenges. The company continuously evolves its products, which can
introduce changes to screen-reader flow. So, in order to help readers more
fully enjoy their Facebook experience, we are excited to offer the
following
information.



Thanks to consumer feedback, and working with several organizations,
including the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB), Facebook has taken
accessibility to a whole new level. In July of 2011, the company formed the
Facebook Accessibility Team to improve its support of accessibility across
products. Recently, AccessWorld spoke with team founder Jeff Wieland and
accessibility engineer Ramya Sethuraman, who offered us a top-10 list of
things they'd like readers to know about Facebook's accessibility program
and products.



Facebook Offers Extensive Keyboard Navigation



For computer users who do not use a mouse, including most screen-reader
users, the main Facebook web site makes extensive use of headings,
landmarks, and lists, which can be easily navigated with your screen-reader
navigation keys. Additionally, the main Facebook web site also offers an
extensive roster of Access and Shortcut keys to help you navigate the site
and quickly perform actions, such as liking, searching, and sharing.



Access Keys



"Access keys let you jump quickly from page to page [within Facebook] with
a
single key combination and without having to tab down to or search for the
appropriate control," says Wieland.



Key combinations vary by browser and/or system:

. Chrome for PC users combine the ALT key with the access keys listed
below.

. IE users combine the ALT key with the access keys listed below,
completing
each command by pressing the Enter key.

. Firefox for PC users press Shift + ALT in combination with the access
keys
listed below.

. Mac users press Control + Option in combination with the command keys
below.



Facebook Access Keys

. Home: 1

. Timeline: 2

. Friends: 3

. Inbox: 4

. Notifications: 5

. Settings: 6

. Activity Log: 7

. About: 8

. Terms: 9

. Help: 0



Shortcut Keys



Much the same way as most screen readers offer single-key navigation
shortcuts to help you quickly find your way around a web page, Facebook
offers a number of single-key commands to perform various actions. Many of
these shortcut keys conflict with browser keys, however, so for now, at
least, you will have to either use your screen reader pass-through command,
or turn off enhanced browser navigation (Forms Mode in JAWS, Focus Mode in
NVDA, and Browser Mode in Window-Eyes).



"If you happen to be in an edit box, or on some other pop-up control, you
may have to tab away or close the dialogue before using the shortcuts,"
says
Wieland.



Facebook News Feed Shortcuts

. Scroll forward through News Feed stories: j

. Scroll backward through News Feed stories: k

. See more of the selected story: Enter/Return

. Post a new status: p

. Like or unlike the selected story: l

. Comment on the selected story: c

. Share the selected story: s

. Open an attachment from the selected story: o

. Search: /

. Search chat contacts: q

. Open a list of these keyboard shortcuts while in News Feed: ?



Facebook Messenger Shortcuts

. Search conversations: CTRL + g

. Show/hide keyboard shortcuts: CTRL + q

. Archive/unarchive conversation: CTRL + Delete

. Mark as spam: CTRL + j

. Start a new message: CTRL + m

. Go to Inbox: CTRL + i

. Go to Other: CTRL + u



Facebook Is Making Photos and Videos More Accessible



"We're still rolling out the Dynamic Alt Text Generator to more products
that will improve the accessibility of both photos and videos," says
Wieland. "We gather all the metadata a user supplies and combine it to
generate a caption that tells a more complete story about that." This
Facebook Design video shows voicing for photos and videos before and after
Dynamic Alt Text captioning:
https://www.facebook.com/accessibility/posts/441575089212506 (link is
external).



Check out the Mobile Apps for Facebook



Facebook offers a mobile site, but Wieland encourages iOS and Android
screen-reader users to try the native apps for these operating systems.
"We've put a lot of work into improving the accessibility of the Facebook
and Facebook Messenger native apps, and in some cases we can build
accessibility experiences in these applications we simply can't easily
replicate on the web (like use of gestures)," he says.



When you have finished reading a timeline entry using the iOS app, for
example, you can now perform a two-finger double-tap to summon a VoiceOver
menu, which includes options to like the post, comment, turn on
notifications, or indicate "I don't want to see this" (which will hide the
story). The two-finger scrub gesture also now works to close any pop-up or
dialogue screen. The Facebook Messenger iOS app also now includes an action
item on the rotor. Perform a one-finger swipe up to delete a message
thread,
mute a conversation, archive a conversation and more.



It's Easy to Contact Facebook



"Facebook offers several ways to get in touch with the Accessibility Team,
and we love getting your feedback," states Wieland. Users can like the
Facebook Access for People with Disabilities page
(https://www.facebook.com/accessibility (link is external)) to stay up to
date on accessibility work and improvements, visit the Facebook
Accessibility Help Center
(https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/169372943117927 (link is external)),
and follow the Facebook Accessibility Team (@fbaccess) on Twitter. The
Accessibility Help Center offers an accessibility bug report contact form
where you can report accessibility issues.



Spreading the Accessibility Message to Other Facebook Employees



In October of 2014, the Accessibility Team launched an installation at
Facebook Menlo Park, Calif. headquarters called the Empathy Lab. The lab is
designed to showcase the different and various methods that people use to
interact with Facebook and broaden the company's understanding of how to
build products that are both usable to those with limited bandwidth and
accessible to screen-reader users.



"We're hoping to give Facebook employees an idea of what it's like to use
Facebook with magnification or a screen reader. We do this with a
collection
of laptops and mobile devices which can only be used with a keyboard or
using screen readers or on slow network connections," says Ramya
Sethuraman.
"The installation has become so popular, we're looking to expand it to
other
campuses so more members of the Facebook team can experience it."



The Facebook Team Is Constantly Improving the Accessible Facebook
Experience



Below Wieland outlines just a few of Facebook's recent accessibility
enhancements.

. You now have the ability to control font size in the iOS Messenger app.

. New VoiceOver gestures were added to help people more easily access the
Delete, Mute, and More actions within iOS Messenger.

. New access keys were added to the mobile site.

. A "Skip to News Feed" link was added to Facebook for people using just
the
keyboard and screen readers to easily jump to the News Feed stories.

. We now support multilingual caption files for Facebook Videos so you can
provide subtitles for all of your video content.



Facebook Will Keep You Updated



Every month the team posts a comprehensive review of the key accessibility
changes and enhancements. You can find the February 2015 update at
https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-accessibility/february-2015-mont...
(link is external). The 2014 year in review is available at
https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-accessibility/2014-year-in-revie...
(link is external).



"Follow our Facebook page so you don't miss any future updates," Wieland
suggests. The URL is https://www.facebook.com/accessibility (link is
external).



Facebook Wants Your Help



Facebook has a dedicated User Experience Research team that runs many
different kinds of studies, including in-house usability studies and phone
interviews with people who use their products.



"Our last round of accessibility usability testing focused on TalkBack
with
Facebook for Android," relates Wieland.



If you would like to be considered for participation in future studies and
getting paid for your feedback, send an e-mail to the accessibility
research
team, accessibilityresearch@fb.com (link sends e-mail).



Accessibility Beyond Facebook



"The Facebook Accessibility Team is passionate about making accessibility
more mainstream, and one of our top priorities is to introduce
accessibility
to new audiences," says Sethuraman. "For instance, last year we spoke at
Stanford University to introduce students to writing accessible code. We
also gave a talk on web accessibility basics at the Grace Hopper
Conference."



In addition, the Facebook Accessibility team actively consults and
collaborates with various disability organizations. Notes Wieland, "Last
year we sponsored and spoke at the American Foundation for the Blind's
Leadership Conference. We also sponsored the American Council of the
Blind's
summer conference in Las Vegas. We recently joined the American Association
of People with Disabilities Tech Forum and are excited about collaborating
with industry leaders on a range of accessibility related initiatives."



For Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), Facebook hosted companies
from the Bay Area for a round of lightning talks on accessibility
implementations. Guests included the co-founders of GAAD, Jennison Asuncion
and Joe Devon.



Facebook Is Hiring!



"We recently grew our dedicated accessibility engineering team, and we are
still hiring," says Wieland. "We are actively looking for an accessibility
specialist." You can read more about the position on Facebook's careers
page.

Re: Outlook 2003 attachments

Adrian Spratt
 

Paul,

To me, HTML formatting for messages is essential because I constantly use the links to connect to online items. When I get an HTML email message with attachments, I simply place focus at the top of the message. This ensures that a single press of shift-tab will take me to the attachments field.

Multiple attachments is a hit-or-miss proposition for me. I do find that I can locate all attachments if I do enough arrowing (up and down, left and right). It helps if JAWS is relatively fresh (that is, if I rebooted fairly recently). Your workarounds look useful, and I'll keep them for future reference. So you probably helped me more than I have you!

Oh, I'm using Outlook 2010, but in these respects, I recall Outlook 2003 being the same.

Hi all. I'm working with a client using Office 2003 and the current version of JAWS. The client is having trouble accessing email attachments. I've never used JAWS with Office 2003, so I'm unsure how to do this. Here's what I've tried, and the problems I've ran into.

After opening an email with an attachment, I did a shift-tab to try to move to the attachments area of the message window. This doesn't work when the email is in HTML format. Instead, shift-tab moves me backwards through the links in the message body.

To resolve the shift-tab issue, I went into email options and set it to display all email as plain text. After this change, shift-tab does allow me to move to the attachments area. However, in the case of multiple attachments, there is no trivial way to move to a specific attachment (arrow keys don't do this).

I was able to eventually open a specific attachment, by switching to the JAWS cursor, control-arrow to a specific attachment, then invoke a double left click with numpad-/. While this does work for me, my client lacks the JAWS expertise to manage this on her own, and we don't have the training budget for me to take her through the necessary curriculum.

The only other option I'm aware of would be to go to the file menu and save attachments. Then she would simply open them from the saved location. This is a less direct solution than the client would prefer.

Any ideas on opening attachments in Word 2003? All help would be appreciated. -Paul

Just testedit and it works but using Jaws15 and XP.
I created two files
test one.html
Test two.html
and attached both into an email message. I used shift tab and JawsKey+a
then used left right arrow keys and no problems.

Deleting empty cells in Excel and maintaining formatting

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

I’m trying to submit some information for a vendor client consisting of a
bunch of zip codes and cities. My spreadsheet is in landscape mode made up
of four sets of two columns. I.E. columns A,B D,E F,G etc. With thirty or so
rows in each column.

I’ve deleted some zips and cities leaving some cells blank and would like to
remove all empty gaps to further condense the table, but can’t figure out
how to do it without messing up the rest of the formatting. I can’t simply
delete the entire row as there are other zips and cities on other rows that
I still wish to have and deleting the empty cells makes the other cells run
into each other.

I’m sure I’m missing something pretty easy, but can’t for the life of me hit
on it. I’m using Jaws 16 and Excel 2010.

Can someone enlighten me or refresh my memory.



Thanks,

Cristobal
