Hi James if you don't mind me asking which brother printer do you have? I
also have a brother printer I have a brother hl3040cn series printer. I'm
not sure where would I put envelopes if I had to print them? Also
wouldthose same directions work for my printer? Thank you for any
information that you might have.

Hello,

I did not read every single post on this subject so I hope I am not
repeating unnecessary information. Here's how I address envelopes with
NotePad and my Brother laser printer.

Open Notepad and go in to page set up from the file menu.

Select letter size for ten inch envelopes.

Select the landscape mode.

Type the first line of the sender's address and hit enter.

Hit enter after each line of the sender's address.

Then, hit enter five times and then, tab ten times and start typing the
first line of the addressee.

Hit enter at the end of each line of the addressee and remember to tab over
ten times before you start writing the text for a new line so the lines will
line up.

For most Brother laser printers, you place the envelope with the flap down
and on the left in to the envelope slot.

A similar procedure works for labels but I don't remember the exact number
of lines and tabs to use. Also, it is possible to make an address label
that can hold a packing slip with the above directions and just tape the
envelope on to the box with Scotch tape.

HTH,

James Bentley

I have had the same problem.
The way I have been doing it is I will just type the name and address on a
blank document, and then select it. Since the name and address is selected,
it will automatically populate that edit field to print an envelope once you
go to that screen.
Even though Jaws will not read anything in that field, it is actually there.

I have been doing it this way ever since I have been using Office 2013.

Kelly,

          You are indeed correct.   I hasten to add that I do not, and never have, attempted to teach any client the exhaustive list of either JAWS commands or keyboard shortcuts for the Windows programs they're using.   As I pointed out earlier relative to myself, even I don't know anywhere near to all of these.  I let the client's actual needs as I work with them guide just precisely what gets taught in terms of the weird detailed keyboard shortcuts that virtually no sighted person ever uses but that they must use if they wish to independently perform task X.

          I'm also big on the "teach a man or woman to fish" approach to JAWS and Windows, so that when I'm no longer present they are able to do a reasonable amount of digging and exploration on their own.  I do less of this than I'd actually like to because I often have to focus on a list of immediate and pressing needs related to what the client needs to accomplish NOW (or yesterday).

          I will take issue with your statement about blind users and the number of keyboard shortcuts they can manage in their heads.  Virtually every proficient blind computer user I know manages a large number of keyboard shortcuts in their head, far more than I do teaching them, because I learn them to teach them, while they learn them to use them and tend to build upon that list as more and more tasks are required over a period of years.  I'd be shocked if it isn't hundreds, plural, for some of the really, really proficient.

Jaws 17 and Usps web site and Google Chrome

Hi:

 

I am using Win10 and Jaws 17. First, I tried Internet Explorer to sign up for an account on usps.com. No luck and so I switched to Google Chrome, which is working better except now that I finished filling in all the fields, when I press enter on create account, nothing happens.

 

Any advice? Thank you.

Re: Associated Draft

Cindy,

I've only seen this when I have the reading pane visible. When that's the case, and you hear "associated draft" while in the Inbox, the draft is visible in the reading pane and you can press Tab once to put your focus at the start of the draft body.

The draft is also in your Drafts folder, and you use the usual methods of getting there from your Inbox - pressing Ctrl + Y to get a dialogue, or - if you have it on screen - pressing Shift + Tab to move to the tree view of folders in the Navigation pane.

Hope that helps,
Steve

Re: Windows10 calculator

 

Elise,

          I really wish I could help more because Microsoft Math appears to be a very powerful tool that goes well beyond what most high-end graphing calculators used to do.  The fact that you can save worksheets that you're working on and come back to them later is just incredible.

          I will be very curious to hear what your findings are.  One small warning, though, don't be surprised if FS tells you that they are completely unfamiliar with Microsoft Math and unable to help.   I have gotten this response on a couple of occasions for things that I requested help with, and I didn't think those responses were unreasonable, either, since a company like FS has to focus its efforts on what most of its target demographic actually uses, rather than what a few outliers on the bell curve in their target demographic might use.  I'll be interested to hear what they have to say or tell you as well.

Good analogy.  I remember my first screen reader just loved the function keys.  There was a simple pass key arrangement to pass non-VOS keys to the word processer, which happened to be
DisplayWrite 3.  The transparency thing didn’t work so well, and they would slug it out at Interrupt Vector 9.  A buddy of mine, who was a data analyst, passed me a simple mod to DisplayWrite’s central batch file, and man, what a difference!  After that, you couldn’t crash those programs with a hammer.

Thanks to all for this fascinating exchange of ideas.

Laura, your question is not in any way dumb and it is very difficult to answer easily.  It's relatively easy for me to know the difference because I can literally see the Windows keyboard shortcuts "reveal themselves" as the sequences are hit, at least a large number of them.  I certainly, for instance, didn't know the keyboard sequence that was used in Windows Live Mail to do a message search in its entirety, particularly the ALT+i for the find now key, but as I work through the process the first time with the client at each step Windows (or the Windows program) shows the next character or characters that are part of the sequence, allowing me to build the entire sequence for inclusion in the step-by-step directions.

I am glad, though, to hear others saying that it is important to make this distinction.  The main reason it's important to me is that there is a huge set of Windows keyboard shortcuts, the three best known being Ctrl+C (copy), Ctrl+X (cut), and Ctrl+V (paste), that are used in precisely the same manner in more programs than I can count.  There are many more that fall into the "extended common" set of Windows keyboard shortcuts and I want my clients to understand that, if they're in a pinch, and they know how to do "process X" in "program Y" that they should at least try seeing if "process X" will get the same result in different Windows "program Z."

The same concept applies to the JAWS layer as well, since you use the same JAWS keyboard shortcuts to accomplish the same tasks in a wide array of Windows programs.

If you know the difference between the two, though, and you have that knowledge "in your bones" you can actually sometimes function if speech goes south at a given point in time and still complete at least the current thing you're trying to do like save a file.

Another reason it's important to know the difference is because sometimes assistive technology like JAWS, ZoomText, or the like "captures" what would be a Windows keyboard shortcut for it's own use.  My client gave an example of this last night, that he'd figured out on his own.  He generally uses either ZoomText or JAWS (much more JAWS these days) separately along with whatever Windows program he needs beneath it.  The other day he had ZoomText, plus JAWS, plus some Windows program open.  One of the commands that we always used to perform a function in that Windows program when JAWS was running alone suddenly wasn't working in the Windows program, and ZoomText was doing something he'd never seen before.  He figured out for himself that ZoomText had commandeered that particular command for its own use and, thus, was not passed along to the Windows program running beneath it for processing.

I use the analogy of the various programs being like separate sifting screens stacked one atop the other.  The screen readers and other assistive technology are always the topmost screen.  They get every blessed keystroke you hit passed through them first, and these programs get to interpret those first, so if a keystroke sequence is considered a command by JAWS, for instance, JAWS does it's thing with that sequence and nothing from it sifts through to the program that is "the next sifting screen down."  Then, all of the keystroke sequences that JAWS didn't snag as its own get passed down to the next sifting screen, and for the purposes of this narrative lets say that's ZoomText.  Now ZoomText gets "first crack" at interpreting the sequences that have passed into its hands, and acts on any of those it recognizes as "my command."  Then whatever is left sifts through and falls into the screen that is the Windows program running below it for interpretation as commands it processes.  I think it's important for people to understand that there exists a hierarchy and that AT sits at the top of that heap and gets first crack at every keyboard input sequence to decide if it "belongs to me" before passing what remains on to the next guy.  Very often this may be irrelevant to doing what you want to do, but it can be key to understanding why "things that used to work" may work no longer if some other AT program gets added to the mix that ends up siphoning off commands that used to be passed through to other programs, so those other programs never see them.

Heavens, but the above seems awfully wordy, but I really can't think of a short way to describe the conceptual framework of program layers and that knowing about it can make sudden changes in behavior on your system a bit more understandable when new stuff enters the mix of programs running at the same time.

Brad,

 

I finally installed AdBlock. I’m surprised no one has mentioned the query that comes up when you land on a page using IE11. When I pressed alt-n to identify my options, I got only two choices: something like review add-ons and ask me later. But when I put focus on the “ask me later” button, I found it was one of those split affairs. Down arrow once, and there’s the option not to disable, on which I pressed enter.

 

As this notice warned, AdBlock does slow down the loading of pages, at least when IE11 is the browser.

        Your post has come across not unlike a cell phone call that's breaking up.  However, it appears that you are asking me about Microsoft Mathematics, and, if so, I can be of almost no help to you at all.  I've downloaded and installed the program just to see if it would be more JAWS user friendly as a basic calculator, and it most certainly is not.

         It may be (and appears like it would be) quite useful for a math major.  My last mathematics class was calculus three all the way back in the mid-1980s, so I've forgotten an awful lot about anything that goes beyond basic algebra.  

         There are five different calculator, and associated graphing, functions in Microsoft Math:  Standard, Calculus, Statistics, Trigonometry, and Linear Algebra.  It will deal with regular and complex numbers, there are functions for solving an equation or system of equations, and it doesn't end there. You would definitely need to work with someone who understands the area(s) you're interested in so that they can tell you whether what you're entering, and the results you're getting, are what they should be for the equations being entered.  The JAWS end of it should be "interesting" in that I don't really know how JAWS will interact with the various "buttons" that a sighted individual would just point and click to activate, but that I'm really not sure how they're implemented as programming objects.

          I'm sorry I can't offer much more than the above, but these sorts of calculations are so far out of my current range of understanding that I can't even really test out a lot of them.
