Kevin,

I'm not sure you've gone to the right area. Start typing "devices" (as in, devices and printers) into the Windows search field. Pres enter on the first item, and the list will appear. When I had an HP printer, I had a hard time isolating it on that list and had to resort to the JAWS cursor and the insert-PC key combo. I don't have this difficulty with my new Brother printer, so in my experience it's something about HP products.

Hello Listers,
I have a
hp laserjet pro mfp m127 fn, Jaws 16, Windows 7, 64 bit, and have installed it’s program, at least it shows up on my hard drive, but it does not show up in the control panel, nor when I press control P, on a word document,and arrow around to select a printer. A sighted friend got the printer to work manually, but I can not direct it to print using Jaws. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Kevin.

Re: Spelling on word 2013

Michal Nowicki <mnowicki4@...>
 

Microsoft unfortunately introduced some accessibility issues in Word 2013,
and navigating the spell checker is probably the biggest of these problems.
For instance, JAWS no longer announces spelling errors automatically every
time; sometimes you must press Tab and Shift Tab to accomplish this task.
Additionally, the spellcheck hotkeys (ignore, change, ignore all, etc.) no
longer work, though pressing them without the Alt key (I = ignore, c =
change, etc.) does the trick sometimes.

I hope Microsoft addresses these accessibility barriers in Office 2016.
Meanwhile, I hope the above observations help.

Subject: Spelling on word 2013

Hi all,
Probably this question is a little bit stupid, but I don't see the way to
get what I need.
On Microsoft Word 2015, specifically on Office 365, when I press F7, to use
the spelling features, the dialog that opens is very different than that
appears on Outlook 2013. In the dialog on word 2013, doesn't appear the list
of suggestions. I tried to search the dialog using the OCR, even though it
didn't see anything like list of suggestions in this window. It doesn't
exist, or exist a keystroke to go to the list of suggestions?
Thanks for any advice.

Re: bounces

Michal Nowicki <mnowicki4@...>
 

When I studied at the Illinois School for the Visually Impaired, a
residential school specializing in teaching adaptive skills, I was in one of
the most restrictive computer environments imaginable. Students were
prohibited from visiting any site that requires them to enter their personal
information (e.g. online stores and all sites requiring users to log in),
and many web pages, including Google, were completely blocked. As for
e-mail, all attachments with nontextual extensions (photos, music, videos,
etc.) were filtered out to prevent school computers from catching a virus.
Moreover, all traffic from outside the state network was marked as spam,
unless the address was in the user's contacts.

That being said, I strongly suspect your e-mail administrator's settings
interfere with your communication on this list. While there may be a
setting you can change yourself, I'm afraid the matter lies in the hands of
the state, which may have to work with the list administrator. I'm sorry I
can't be of greater assistance, but I hope your issues get resolved quickly.

This is really for the administrator, so I'd be happy to go off list. I

delete them, respond to them, whatever. Is there anything I can do to
prevent this from happening?

I've had some strange experiences. A certain number of these messages wind
up in quarantine, or in junk mail. Once everything was funneled to junk
for several months; I thought I'd been dropped, and couldn't figure out why.
Now this.

Re: reading a file with insertions & deletions in Word

Ed Marquette <marquette.ed@...>
 

Well, I am not entirely sure what you are wanting to do.
If you want to see a document that has been edited as if there had
never been any edits, you can "reject" all the changes, assuming
the document was edited with "track changes" turned on. That,
will, however, permanently reverse all of the changes

To: jfw@lists.the-jdh.com. So, you are better make a back-up of
the file first.
You can temporarily hide the changes by putting the document in
"final" view. That, however, is like pretending all the changes
were "accepted."
There is also a view called "Original," but I think it shows the
changes in a kind of reverse though I confess I've never tried
this "Original" view. Perhaps it does what you want, shows the
document as though no changes have been made, but without, in
fact, affecting the structure of the file.
Try Alt and then r followed by tab. Arrow right until you get
past comments. Then tab until you come to the list of four views:
final, final showing mark-up, original, and something I don't
remember.
I'm going from memory.

Hi,



What is the best way for me to see the text as is if another
person has made insertions and or deletions in Word 2013? I don't
want to see the changes I made when I emailed it to the other
person.



Is there a way to read what the document contains as if it was
never tampered with, but has the changes incorporated into the
document?



Thanks.





Sincerely,



Lauren

Subject: Hp Printers

Hello Listers,
I have a
hp laserjet pro mfp m127 fn, Jaws 16, Windows 7, 64 bit, and have installed it’s program, at least it shows up on my hard drive, but it does not show up in the control panel, nor when I press control P, on a word document,and arrow around to select a printer. A sighted friend got the printer to work manually, but I can not direct it to print using Jaws. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Kevin.

This is really for the administrator, so I'd be happy to go off list. I just had to resubscribe, due to too many bounces. Anybody care to elaborate on that? This is my state e-mail account. I just process them-read them, delete them, respond to them, whatever. Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening?

I've had some strange experiences. A certain number of these messages wind up in quarantine, or in junk mail. Once everything was funneled to junk for several months; I thought I'd been dropped, and couldn't figure out why. Now this.

Mike,

A couple points... First the "D" is only relevant for PDF documents. Second,
there are two other letters - S for screen and C for Control (i.e. button,
label, etc.).

Keith: Firstly, as Adrian pointed out, I should have said placemarker, not bookmark.

It has been awhile since I have worked with this, but I think you can start the process by finding the text in the web site, then shift control K, then work the dialogue.

Hope this helps.

Hi. Some time ago, there was a thread about changes to the NY Times website that made navigation difficult and the "print" versions of articles impossible to find. The Times promised me, and presumably others, that they were working on making fixes. The problem has only become worse since then.

I'm posting this query to find out if others are experiencing a particular problem. Unlike in the past, there is no "print" link in an article.
However, there is a "more" link. After clicking on this link, sighted readers can see a link to "print." I can click on the "more" link, but the "print" link is still elusive. I found it just now, but once I managed to click on it (I had to go into links list), all I got was a printer dialog.
Escaping out of the dialog, I found the page was laid out exactly the way the main article page is.

So, is anyone doing better at finding and using the "print" versions of NY Times articles? If so, would you explain how? Any other suggestions? (I know about the NFB version, but it lacks the links within articles that can be
invaluable.)

Re: Navigating the New York Times

Adrian Spratt
 

Yes, I use all these techniques except for flexible web partly because the NYT's webpages change from time to time and partly because the method is just too cumbersome if used across the many websites I visit. In addition to the minor annoyance of skipping links, etc., with n and other quick navigation keys, the NYT format alters as I progress down each page. Eventually lines break up, and I need to refresh. When I refresh, I often find my focus has shifted elsewhere. I avoid "say all" on the NYT website because I don't like to sit here as JAWS plows through ads, promotions of other articles, photo captions, etc.

Navigation just shouldn't be this complicated. It's too distracting, as well as time-consuming.

Adrian,
I too miss the print feature. However, I have just gotten used to using my
navigation keys to quickly get around articles. I generally use the 1 key
to skip to the first level heading (usually the main article title), then
use the n (next) key a couple of times to skipp past the various option
info. This will generally get me close to the main text. I then use Say
All or the read paragraph keys to go through the article. I also have set
up flexible web to delete as many of the advertisements as I can. While a
little more cumbersome than the old print function I have found I can get by
pretty well. I also like to use the H (next heading) key on main pages
(such as national news) to skip through the article headings.

Subject: Navigating the New York Times

Hi. Some time ago, there was a thread about changes to the NY Times website
that made navigation difficult and the "print" versions of articles
impossible to find. The Times promised me, and presumably others, that they
were working on making fixes. The problem has only become worse since then.

I'm posting this query to find out if others are experiencing a particular
problem. Unlike in the past, there is no "print" link in an article.
However, there is a "more" link. After clicking on this link, sighted
readers can see a link to "print." I can click on the "more" link, but the
"print" link is still elusive. I found it just now, but once I managed to
click on it (I had to go into links list), all I got was a printer dialog.
Escaping out of the dialog, I found the page was laid out exactly the way
the main article page is.

So, is anyone doing better at finding and using the "print" versions of NY
Times articles? If so, would you explain how? Any other suggestions? (I know
about the NFB version, but it lacks the links within articles that can be
invaluable.)
