Re: Outlook 2003 attachments

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Thanks, Harry. Yes, that was going to be my fallback plan if I couldn't find
a better way. Unfortunately, the client I'm working with is not very adept
with computer technology. Saving attachments to her Documents folder would
inevitably lead to hundreds if not thousands of files in that location, as
she is not competent enough to manage her filesystem. So, I need a simpler
solution.

Okay, I had a chance to work with Outlook 2003 today, and I did manage to
find a direct way to access and open attachments. Here's what I do:
1. INSERT+A to move focus to and select the first attachment.
2. To open the selected attachment, hit context menu key and select open.
3. If I want a different attachment, use CTRL + right or left arrow to move
between and select different attachments. Open the desired attachment as
described in step 2.

It seems odd to me that I need to use CTRL + right or left arrow to move
between the attachments, but that's what works.

The good news about this method is that it doesn't involve complexities like
the JAWS cursor, or having to invoke a double click. These are tasks that
are beyond the comprehension of my client.

Thanks, everyone, for your tips and suggestions.
-Paul

A surefire way to get to attachments is to save them to a folder and open
them there. Harry

I am in need of a spell checker that works better with JAWS, or scripts, preferably free, that will facilitate better interaction with the built in spell checker.

That's not going to work in this case, because all she is getting in the
document are graphics. She may need to convert the document with OCR
software such as OpenBook. she can also use the services of RoboBraille if
she can upload the document.

I'll include the link for her here.

Another possible way. I did this yesterday. Opened a 245 page PDF. Then
I
selected all using control-A. Then copied and pasted directly into a
blank
Word doc. Then saved the Word Doc under the book title name. Now it
opens
in Word remarkably fast and reads very well. It might be searchable.
Hope
this helps.

I use latest J16, Office and Word 2010 on my I5 Dell laptop.

If you have JAWS 16, have it convert the document for you. Press
insert-spacebar, then the letter o for optical character recognition,
then d for document, and let it run. When JAWS has finished, the
document is not only readable, but it can be copied and saved into
another form, such as Word or text.

good luck!

My office has a program that is supposed to convert pdf documents to
searchable text. The issue is that my sighted colleague said that she
could do a search of this one large document and find different words in
it.
However JAWS just read "graphic" Graphic" and gave me some numbers of the
graphics. I'm wondering what is happening here, does anyone have any
ideas?
Thanks!

Hi, Carolyn. Sometimes this can be cleared up by going into your
e-mail program's encoding menu and changing how the e-mail is
decoded. Other times not much helps.

Sometimes the encoding is in Western European Windows. Sometimes it
is in Western European ISO. Sometimes it is in Unicode 7 or 8. You
just have to experiment, viewing the e-mail in various decoding
methods and see what works.

6. Press the letter F until you hear From: Edit.



7. In this field, type *@*



8. Press Tab until you hear: Next Step Button and press the space bar.



9. When the next page loads, press the letter X until you hear: Delete it
Check Box Not Checked. Press the space bar to check this item.



10. Press the letter X until you hear: Also apply filter to 20 conversations
below Check Box Not Checked, and press the space bar to check this item.



11. Press Tab until you hear: Create Filter Button, and press the space bar.
Your filter should now be created.



12. After your filter is created, press Insert+F7, then the letter I to be
taken back to your inbox where you will see all of your messages still there

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.

Another possible way. I did this yesterday. Opened a 245 page PDF. Then I

If you have JAWS 16, have it convert the document for you. Press
insert-spacebar, then the letter o for optical character recognition,
then d for document, and let it run. When JAWS has finished, the
document is not only readable, but it can be copied and saved into
another form, such as Word or text.

good luck!

I checked, and it was Western European ISO, so I switched it to Western European Windows. Thanks for tip. We'll see what happens.

Hi, Carolyn. Sometimes this can be cleared up by going into your e-mail program's encoding menu and changing how the e-mail is decoded. Other times not much helps.

Sometimes the encoding is in Western European Windows. Sometimes it is in Western European ISO. Sometimes it is in Unicode 7 or 8. You just have to experiment, viewing the e-mail in various decoding methods and see what works.

Re: Facebook accessibility

Londa Peterson
 

If you change that setting, you do not even have to turn off the virtual
cursor. I've used it many times with the virtual cursor on, and it works
great. remember that JAWS came out with that update after the AccessWorld
article, so they wouldn't have known about it.

Its not just the virtual cursor. In the latest jaws 16 you must also
turn a setting in the jaws quick settings for this to work. Its called
"allow application reserved keystroaks". If that is check, then those
keys will work, if its not checked, then jaws will behave as normal
with the quick key features.

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.

Re: Facebook accessibility

Londa Peterson
 

I use the shortcut keys mentioned in this article all the time. They are
especially useful since FS has made them usable in JAWS 16 without turning
off the virtual cursor. I navigate Facebook quite effortlessly now. I don't
mean the mobile site either. There's a really good webinar archive on the
freedom Scientific webpage for JAWS users. I hope more people will take
advantage of the accessibility we have.

Re: Deleting empty cells in Excel and maintaining formatting

Unsure what you need.
If an entire row is blank then press control key and all delete stuff is there, delete entire row?
iIf row is empty by deleting it sould be okay.

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
