Re: Outlook 2003 change email sort order?

Brad Martin
 

Paul,
I do this all the time, but it's a reflex reaction at this point, and I don't have Outlook 2003 installed here. I think I go to the View menu, choose Arrange by submenu, and then choose the column I want to sort by. But I won't be able to confirm that for you until Friday when I'm back in the office and can verify. Like I said, I do it every day, but without prompting, I can't be sure.

Does anyone know an easy way to change the email sort order in Outlook 2003?

The list view of emails has headers for each column, and a sighted user can
just click on the column header to sort by that column. But I can't find an
accessible way to get to those column headers in JAWS.

Using the current version of JAWS16. Thanks for any help.
-Paul

Tapin radio and Jaws

Jim L
 

Heya folks,

Anyone else having issues with the last 2 latest versions of Jaws 16 and
Tapin radio when in the preference dialog area, where Jaws just announces
every option in there and one doesn't know what's what or which options is
checked or unchecked.

Tapin radio was always great with accessibility but not this version Is
there a work around besides using NVDA? As that seems to read the
preferences ok

Cheers,

Jim


Re: problem with live365

Charles Krugman
 

some of your problem may be that you are using the JAWS 13 version as it may not be that compatible with the live365.com web site. A while back I had to give up on live365.com and I don't know if it now works because of their changes my upgrades with JAWS and Windows 10. They are quite responsive to blind people contacting them as I've talked with their staff on various occasions over the past few years and they are quite concerned about trying to address accessibility issues as they are aware that a lot of blind people use their site.

I got this computer last spring with windows 7 installed; the latest
jaws version my current license allowed was jaws 13, which doesn't
support my current version of firefox or thunderbird. how will live365
work on a windows 7 machine with jaws 13 or nvda? also uninstalling and
reinstalling webvisum (repeatedly based on varying situations) may be
somewhat of a pain, which i don't want to have to suffer through. thanks.

I went to the about:config page and carried out the steps; I have
youtube working in firefox, but still have a problem with live365.com.
When I go to that site, select a genre or station and hit Listen, I find
an "embedded object unavailable" message, and no sound is heard--the
embedded player stays silent. also the page keeps refreshing, indicated
by the constant clicking sound present since installing webvisum.
anyone else having trouble with live365? thanks.

Flash protected mode might cause Flash performance problems in Firefox,
such as persistent hangs or plugin crashes. This is especially true for
users on Windows touchscreen devices and for users who use accessibility
tools.



You can turn off Flash protected mode by following these steps:



1. Press Control plus l to open the Location bar, type about:config and
press Enter.



. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may
appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise! to continue to the
about:config page.



2. Search for

dom.ipc.plugins.flash.disable-protected-mode

in the list of preferences.



3. Press Enter on the preference to toggle its value from false to true.



4. Press CONTROL plus W to close the about:config window.



5. Close Firefox, and re-launch Firefox for the new setting to take
effect.

I'm curious about turning off Flash and why we should disable it.
Didn't
know labels worked better in Youtube without it. Thing is do we
disable
or set to ask to activate?

I decided to look in to this. Found a checkbox for Flash in Firefox
that wasn't labeled so I read more and found something we should know
about. I'll paste it below without comment.

Adobe Flash protected mode in Firefox | Firefox Help


(Redirected from
Enable Flash Protected Mode Settings on Firefox)

Flash protected mode
is a security feature for Firefox which is implemented by Adobe for
Windows operating systems (Windows Vista/7/8 or above). This feature is
enabled by
default, to make it difficult for attackers to access your computer.

Flash protected mode might cause Flash performance problems in Firefox,
such as persistent hangs or plugin crashes. This is especially true for
users on
Windows touchscreen devices and for users who use accessibility tools.

an add-on called Adblock. I installed it at the recommendation of a

Does anyone know an easy way to change the email sort order in Outlook 2003?

The list view of emails has headers for each column, and a sighted user can
just click on the column header to sort by that column. But I can't find an
accessible way to get to those column headers in JAWS.

Using the current version of JAWS16. Thanks for any help.

Re: problem with live365

douglas richard dexheimer
 

I got this computer last spring with windows 7 installed; the latest jaws version my current license allowed was jaws 13, which doesn't support my current version of firefox or thunderbird. how will live365 work on a windows 7 machine with jaws 13 or nvda? also uninstalling and reinstalling webvisum (repeatedly based on varying situations) may be somewhat of a pain, which i don't want to have to suffer through. thanks.

You can turn off Flash protected mode by following these steps:



1. Press Control plus l to open the Location bar, type about:config and
press Enter.



. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may
appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise! to continue to the

3. Press Enter on the preference to toggle its value from false to true.



4. Press CONTROL plus W to close the about:config window.



5. Close Firefox, and re-launch Firefox for the new setting to take
effect.

Re: Outlook 2003 change email sort order?

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Thanks, Kimber. I was hoping for some slick hotkey that would take me to the
column header controls. I know I can do that in "add or remove programs",
for example (allows me to sort installed programs either by name or by
install date). Not sure why all list view controls don't work the same.
Frustrating.

Re: need instructions for getting started in excel

Mcginnis, Barbara
 

Please let me know if this helps.

Excel is a spreadsheet program that is part of the Microsoft Office package. A spreadsheet program allows you to organize data into columns and rows, analyze data and perform calculations on it.

There are three kinds of entries in spreadsheets: text, numbers and formulas.

You can use a spreadsheet to create a variety of files, including income statements, financial statements, budgets, databases and invoices.

Excel opens with a new blank workbook for you to enter and analyze data and to maintain lists of information.

An Excel file is referred to as a workbook. That is because it is like a book made up of pages. These pages are known as worksheets or spreadsheets.

A spreadsheet is made up of columns and rows. The columns are headed with alphabetic characters and the rows are headed with numbers. There are 16,384 columns. Since there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, Excel gets to columns Z and starts over with AA, AB, AC and all the way to AZ and then moves to BA. BB, BC and so forth

A small rectangle appears whenever a column and row intersects. These rectangles are known as cells. All cells have addresses. The address of the first cell in the upper left corner of the spreadsheet is column A and row 1 or A-1. The active cell has a dark box around it. When you type date, it automatically goes into the active cell.

If your hands are on the keyboard, it is faster to use keyboard navigation. Using keyboard navigation, the active cell moves with you.

The keyboard shortcuts are:

Control plus home moves to cell A
Control plus end moves to the end of data in the spreadsheet.
Home moves to the beginning or to the first cell of the row
Page down moves down one screen
Page up moves up one screen
Left, right, up, and down arrow moves one cell to the right, left, up, or down.

The fastest way to move to a cell is to use the Go To command, Control plus G. Type the cell address in the Go To dialog box and press Enter.

Entering data in a worksheet is a two-step process. One you type data in the cell, the next step is to complete the entry. If you suddenly realize that you selected the wrong cell, you may want to cancel the entry.
Pressing enter makes Excel complete the entry and the active cell moves down one row.
Pressing tab makes Excel complete the entry and the active cell moves right one column
Pressing an arrow key makes Excel complete the entry and the active cell moves in the direction of the arrow.
Pressing escape makes Excel remove any data typed in the cell and the active cell remains active.

Subject: need instructions for getting started in excel

Hi list Friends,



I am needing some basic instructions for getting started in excel. A couple of months ago, I saved some information from someone on this list pertaining to getting started in excel, however; when I tried to open the saved email, my computer says that I am trying to open MS outlook 2013, therefore, I cannot get to this information. I am using MS2010.



When I open the excel program, a table comes up in rows and columns. I know how to navigate from column to column and row to row. Do I just start creating a table as I would in doing a table in word? I am thinking there is more to this.



I write grants for our local radio reading service program, and my goal is to create a document that will reflect the amount of monies received from each foundation, indicating amount spent for each budget item requested in the grant. This is basically for my own personal use, but could also be provided to the donors if requested.



I have looked in the JAWS guides etc. and have downloaded one R&R file about columns, rows, and headers. I'm not sure if this will provide instructions for getting started in creating an excel document.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and I will save comments to just a word document instead of saving the email.



Live and learn.



Barbara Hansen

Re: going back to windows7, what problems for installing jaws?

HAMILTON
 

You might also request that FS to add 1 to your "install count" since you
are essentially reinstalling it onto the same machine, though now operating
with Windows 7.

If this is really not necessary, someone else on this list will correct me.
I do not like operating under false assumptions; so, this would be no
problem for me. In fact, I count on this kind of feedback from listers.

Jaws support for Problem Steps Recorder feature of Windows8 or higher.

Dr. Vikas Dixit
 

Hello! I am using Jaws16 on Windows8 and Windows10 OS. Sometimes, I need to utilise Windows new feature, called "Problem Steps Recorder" for some hardware/software related remote assistance from engineer. However, I find it quite difficult to utilise this feature PSR with Jaws. Jaws does not seem to support this new feature of Windows8/10. Does anybody from this forum have any experience/knowledge which can improve that of mine in this regard?
Thanks and regards!

Re: A Question Regarding the Accessibility of the Amazon Music Download App with Jaws

Sorry to say but here in the UK this service is out of bounds for us screen reader users.
We used their other service very well but as they upgraded to other services we are once again left out.

Hello Everyone,

Today I received a notice from Amazon informing me that my beloved Amazon
MP3 Downloader app, which I have been using for over 8 years, has been

Amazon has revamped its website which now allows for the downloading of

I have to admit that , even using an older version of Jaws on one of my
older PCs, the web experience is much better.

However, Amazon continues to push the use of its desktop music app. So,
today, after resisting all these years, I decided to install the music app
on a Windows 7 PC running Jaws 15, I believe. I also have Zoomtext on that
PC.

To put it bluntly, my experience with the app was terrible. It seemed to be
completely inaccessible, even with Zoomtext.

I am writing to see if anyone, on-list, has any experience using the app
with any success with Jaws.

I am more than happy to use my web browser to play and purchase and download
my purchased music from Amazon but I do like to explore all possible
options.

All replies welcomed.

Thank you,

Mark

Re: problem with live365

Aidan <aidan.smarttalk@...>
 

Live365 really love to make their apps not very accessible. Only the
ios apps work, but the desktop player and the web player need work. I
did write to them about that, but who noes.

When I go to that site, select a genre or station and hit Listen, I find

embedded player stays silent. also the page keeps refreshing, indicated
by the constant clicking sound present since installing webvisum.
anyone else having trouble with live365? thanks.

You can turn off Flash protected mode by following these steps:



1. Press Control plus l to open the Location bar, type about:config and
press Enter.



. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may
appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise! to continue to the
about:config page.



2. Search for

dom.ipc.plugins.flash.disable-protected-mode

in the list of preferences.



3. Press Enter on the preference to toggle its value from false to true.



4. Press CONTROL plus W to close the about:config window.



5. Close Firefox, and re-launch Firefox for the new setting to take
effect.

I'm curious about turning off Flash and why we should disable it.
Didn't
know labels worked better in Youtube without it. Thing is do we
disable
or set to ask to activate?

I decided to look in to this. Found a checkbox for Flash in Firefox
that wasn't labeled so I read more and found something we should know
about. I'll paste it below without comment.

Adobe Flash protected mode in Firefox | Firefox Help


(Redirected from
Enable Flash Protected Mode Settings on Firefox)

Flash protected mode
is a security feature for Firefox which is implemented by Adobe for
Windows operating systems (Windows Vista/7/8 or above). This feature is
enabled by
default, to make it difficult for attackers to access your computer.

Flash protected mode might cause Flash performance problems in Firefox,
such as persistent hangs or plugin crashes. This is especially true for
users on
Windows touchscreen devices and for users who use accessibility tools.

No, it's not a security issue. Like I said, if you had said you were
getting an error that Flash was disabled, that would have been the
problem.

I have noticed that Firefox seems to crash a bit with video embedded
sites lately. Honestly, what I've found that helped me was installing
an add-on called Adblock. I installed it at the recommendation of a
friend, but when I did, almost all my crashing problems stopped. You
can download it at www.getadblock.com if you want it. It has fixed
most of my issues.

I'll get a message like "embedded object unavailable." why would
flash's security diminish with later versions of firefox--i.e., why
did those sites work in earlier ff versions on my older windows xp

What I wrote regarding Firefox 40.0.3 was:

That should work. I thought you were going to say the buttons
weren't
reading for you correctly, because that is often the case with
Firefox.
Flash reads
better with Internet Explorer. If you're getting a message that
Flash is
disabled, it suggests that there is a security flaw in Flash and
Firefox
is blocking
access to it until Adobe releases a patched version of Flash. If
it's
crashing, that's a beast of another color.
