Re: Is there a way to get the flyer template for microsoft word 2013?

 

David,

           I am unclear as to what you mean by "a flier template."  In every version of Office I've worked with (and I've worked with 2013, though my machine has 2010) a wide variety of flier templates is included and accessed via File->New and then getting yourself to the "Flyers" templates under the Office.com templates section.  There are 67 different templates that come up in Office 2010.

          I can get there via the following keyboard shortcut sequence (where a comma indicates you can let go of the prior key(s) of the sequence):  

                                ALT+F,N,YA

At that point you should probably be able to use the arrow keys to cruise through the options presented.

Re: Why upgrade to IE 11?

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Tom. In the past, after Microsoft has stopped supporting older versions of Internet Explorer, if you tried to go to some websites, Internet Explorer would either tell you that your browser is no longer supported, or it would come up and say "Unable to display web page".
 
It's not so much the fact that it is a risk in the beginning. It is that you might not be able to use some sites you want to use.

Hello, everyone.

 

Please do not take this question as a means of trying to start controversy on the list.

 

Can someone explain to me the exact risks that would be involved with sticking to IE 10, rather than upgrading to IE 11?

 

I know that Microsoft will not be supporting IE 10 after Jan 12, but I’m never quite sure exactly what that means.

 

As many of you know, I’m a college professor, and always like to understand why things happen as they do, and why one should take certain steps.

 

I was in a discussion with someone this morning about why I need to upgrade to IE 11, and didn’t feel I was answering their questions adequately.

 

Again, not trying to stir up controversy;  just trying to learn.

Usually, to "expand" the inbox so that it doesn't read COLLAPSED, you only have to press the right arrow.  Then you arrow down and you'll find that those suddenly missing emails have returned.  I hope I've addressed the proper problem.

Re: Keyboard web site.

 
Edited

Carolyn,

         I'm presuming you mean http://www.jaws-users.com/

         If you're looking for keyboard shortcuts specific to a given version of Windows those can usually be found by searching the Microsoft website for "Keyboard shortcuts Windows (insert version number here).  Here's the link for those for Windows 10.

         And here's one more that I'd never encountered before under the Microsoft hierarchy:  Microsoft Accessibility.  At the moment it only covers up to Windows 8 for the OS and Office 2013 for office, but it's a nice collection that covers the most commonly used Microsoft programs.  I'd imagine it will eventually be updated for Win10 and the latest versions of Office.

Re: Why upgrade to IE 11?

 

Tom,

          Adrian has expressed the broader issue with using any unsupported web browser more specifically:  security.

          In the very near term there is probably near to zero risk in continuing to use IE10, but, as time goes by those risks keep increasing and never stop.  When official support is ended for a product, be it web browser or other, it essentially becomes "frozen in time" at the support end date.  No additional bug fixes or patches of any sort are available for that software.  This means that whatever any hacker or hackers can determine is a viable way to exploit that software will remain a viable way to exploit it in perpetuity.  When that particular piece of software is both a web browser, and closely integrated with the operating system as IE is, that means you're keeping an ideal target on your machine for those who want to exploit its weaknesses to exploit them.

          It is really never wise to continue using unsupported software that touches the web or your OS "directly" (and IE does this) in any way.  I use some very ancient pieces of software that have no connectivity to the outside world, e.g. Microsoft Photo Editor (from XP), several electronic automotive reference "manuals," and a couple more.  The reason I don't feel unsafe in using those is that they have no connectivity to cyberspace - they're self-contained.

Brian, would you mind, please sending that site for keyboard commands? Yesterday, I had a computer crash, and that is one casualty. I had it up in my Inbox, where it would be on top every time I came in, so I could use it frequently.

Thank you.

Re: Mirror Display driver error

If you remove a driver, it should be the Freedom Scientific Driver.  Then, try to run a JAWS repair to see if that resolves the error.

Which of these two drivers should I uninstall? Or should I use the “Search for Updates” feature?

You can check in your device manager to see if the mirror display driver is installed.  If it is, I would remove it, and then run a JAWS repair.  This has resolved this issue for me in the past.  If it doesn’t, you may have to totally remove JAWS, and start from scratch.  Good luck!

Did you by any chance run the Windows 10 tool from FS to remove older versions of Jaws? If so, then that could be what’s causing your issues. I did this thinking I’d upgrade my Windows 7 machine, but later decided against it. Running the Jaws 17 installer fixed it for me.

Dear List Members,

 

I had been using JAWS 16 (64-bit) on my computer with Windows 7 as the OS. I have installed the latest build of JAWS 17 (64-bit) during the weekend & since then have been receiving a Freedom Scientific Mirror Display driver error message. This error message appears whenever JAWS is started & going back to JAWS version 16 has not resolved the problem.

 

The error message says that the Freedom Scientific Mirror Display driver could not be loaded & provides a Reinstall option. Selecting the Reinstall option does not resolve the problem.

 

Request your kind assistance in resolving the above problem.

 

Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Is there a way to get the flyer template for microsoft word 2013?

Hi list members, I’m trying to find out if there is a flier template for Microsoft word 2013?  I need to make some fliers but I wanted to make sure that this was possible?  Thank you for any information that you might have.  I am using jaws 16 and windows 7 professional 64 bit.  P.S.  I tried to install another voice in jaws but I think that I’m unable to use it because of the amd processor that I have in this e machine.  I’m wondering if it would work in the quad coar system with 32 gb of ram!  Thank you for any information that you might have concerning my questions!


Re: how to save favorites in Google Chrome

David Moore
 

Hi,
To save a website, just press ctrl + D. Now, to read through your book marks (favorites) Press the alt key and down arrow once and press the letter B. Press the right arrow to open that sub menu and then up and down arrow through your book marks. Favorites in IE are called Book marks in Firefox and Google Chrome. As you arrow through your book marks, just press enter on the one you want. You can also import all of your favorites from IE, and book marks from Firefox. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have anymore questions. Have a great one.

Jim,

        Well, the most likely answer is that she has a lot more user data on her system, and if this is the case then you are in luck.  You can always get a USB drive or microSD card that's as large, or larger, in its capacity than the whole "hard drive" on this machine.  Copy off all the user data and then delete it from the tablet itself.  Then run the upgrade, which will likely work.  Then copy the user data back on to the device.

        I actually suggest that, whenever possible, if your tablet has an SD or microSD card port that you keep one in there and save all your user data to that rather than to the "hard drive" (which isn't, but you know what I mean).  These days 32GB isn't a heck of a lot of space as far as any OS is concerned.  The microSD card I have in my smartphone is 64GB.

Re: Saving a location with Google Chrome

Adrian Spratt
 

While in Chrome, press alt. Arrow down once. Press b for bookmarks. Right-arrow once. Now you can arrow up and down this submenu.

 

One option is to book mark a page, which shares the same IE shortcut of control-d. Another is to import favorites/bookmarks from other browsers, including IE.

 

Navigation through the bookmarks menu relies heavily on right arrow, along with the up and down arrows.

 

After your IE favorites have been imported, you reach them with the same b submenu. Once you hit the IE imports option, right-arrow twice.
