Re: Identifying colors in word

Kimber Gardner
 

Hi Ed,

I'm probably going to have to use the find in word to search for
colors as the document is rather large, but at least it sounds doable.

What are the steps for defining a hot key under keyboard? I've never done that.

Thanks for all the help.

Searching for color changes is possible in word. Not sure which version of
Word you are in, but if you get deep into the find dialog box, you will find
the option. As I recall, you need to search by specific color. So, you
will look for all the yellow and then all the red and so on. That's not all
that satisfying.
Be sure the changes are not in track changes. They will appear in different
colors too, and sighted folks may not know the difference.
You can jump to changes in track changes multiple ways.
With JAWS, press Insert plus z to turn on those quick keys or whatever they
are called. Then, simply press r to jump to the next revision.
In the reviewing task bar, you can tab to "next," but that's lots of tabbing
and quite slow
Finally, you can do what I did. Inside Word options and keyboard, you can
create your own shortcut keys. In my case, I set Shift plus alt plus r to
jump to the "next" revision.
Finally, if the document has track changes, you will want to turn them on
with insert plus v.
Hope this helps.

Thanks so much Tom and Dave. That works great.

Now, is there a way to jump from one piece of colored text to the
next? I don't see a navigation quick key for it, but I'm wondering if
it would be possible to perhaps do it with a macro or a script?

1. Press alt+insert+s to bring up the scheme selection dialog.
2. Make a mental note of which scheme is currently active; it's probably
"classic". This is important in case you want to come back to it later.
3. Arrow up or down to the scheme that sounds right for you, then press

4. Go to the top of your document and do a say-all. You should hear JAWS

Re: [Bulk] Identifying colors in word

Charles Coe
 

There are free webinars on the FS site under speech and sound schemes that
instruct on how to use the features that will identify colors, fonts, etc;
You can download them in audio and html format.
Also the insert alt and s will be of use as well There are 22 selections in
this group and you will have to select which one will work for your needs.

Re: [Bulk] Identifying colors in word

Dave...
 

Kimberly,

At the risk of Tom again coming up with a better solution, I think you can
search by attributes in MS-Word. I've not had much success with it myself,
so some poking around the find dialog will be needed on your part.

There may also be a training document on the Freedom Scientific site on
this. I vaguely recall getting exposure to the idea in a past webinar on
Word 2003.

Re: Identifying colors in word

Hi,
Yeah, I'd forgottten about that one and had to look it up, then test it out on a document that I had lying around for that purpose. I guess I did okay with that one considering that I've been up for just under an hour and the caffeine ain't quite kicked in yet. <grin> I'll have to pass this little gem on to my students some time today. That way it'll be sure to stick in my brain.

I had someone that was doing the portuguese and german

Is there any takers for translating the message files for Blind Tunes?
You don't need to be an expert in scripting and I do provide
instructions.
Thank you all so much. The language pack should include about 9 other
languages. And Blind Tunes is seeing record activity on the site from
all around the world.
You could earn your place in the special thanks section too!
So far in process and done are:
Dutch, English of course, Finnish, French, Hebrew, Italian, Swedish,
and
Spanish.
But I need German and Portuguese.
You can email me at Support@blindTunes.net
Thanks for your attention!

My student tracks the dates he attended class so he can be reimbursed for transportation. He attended on September twelfth. JAWS called it "September first-something (I don't remember the second number).
Also, September two zero, 2011, is spoken "September 20th", despite there being no 'th'. And when I wrote two zero in numbers with a space between to illustrate this point, JAWS spoke it as 'second zero'. that's why I spelled the numbers out.

Maybe I'm just getting cranky---a definite possibility--but I find myself saying more and more often to my students, "JAWS is lying to you."

1. When opening a new document or application, JAWS often rereads the previous screen before reading the screen it just opened. To a newby, this is way confusing.

2. When reading dates, JAWS speaks a 'th' or 'st' or 'rd' after the date, even though it isn't there. It is important to me to know what I wrote, not what JAWS thinks I want to hear.

3. When working with an outline in Word 2010, JAWS often but not consistently reports the line I just pressed enter on, and not the new line with the outline number. So when I'm planning a party--my favorite outline--it says "2. send invitations' and not '3', which is where the cursor is.

I don't think I'm imagining this. Is anyone else having these kinds of issues???

thanks.

Ann

Re: JAWS 13 Withholding Information

I noticed this too. Today was the first time I really tried to select
anything. It does seem to work with .rtf files ok, but it definitely
doesn't work with .docx files.

adobie SVG Viewer

Robbie Miller
 

Hello All:

I'm on a web site that gives me a download link for adobie svg viewer.
The page says I need it to view a "interactive" map.
Will Jaws 12 work with the adobie svg viewer?

Thanks.

Robbie

Hi JAWS 12 and 13 are both reading the text highlighted with shift end or
shift down arrow. Then JAWS says selected...

Hi.
I've got a strange problem today with spotify.
I can log in, but I can't do anything more.
Have any of you had this problem?

Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not

Dorothy <dorothy.ingram-gorban@...>
 

98 to demonstrate equipment, even if he was selling XP, he said"it was
easier to colour thepallets.. Yes but although it may sound funny, only
imagine people getting invisible emails, and it is a sighted world out
there, my emails white print on black screen would arrive appearing
invisible. Those who knew me would highlight them, even a computer engineer
rang me to say "I cannot see it. The only people who did not get in black on
black,were those who used webmail. I asked the man who demonstrated the
equipment to me in my home why it worked when he set it up ,it had no
internet connection it was my first ever computer remember. He said later he
always used windows98 to demonstrate it was easier to colour the Pallets.
anyway the rnib volunteer did say"!I have been here 2 hours and the darned
thing has lied about everything, However the hard part was diagnosing the
problem and finding a fix Dorothy..

Hi Ann. I agree with your first point. I also find this very frustrating
and annoying. I really do wish jaws wouldn't read the screen or part of the

screen that was just left. It is confusing. And yes I think jaws is lying
too.

I just installed jaws 13. Hope it isn't lying too.

I have not found any control in jaws that has an effect on the behavior. In

older screen readers. For instance, ASAP, you could adjust the text out
delay. I thought that would work in jaws but it doesn't seem to help.

Your second point about dates, I've seen that happen to but I'm not sure
which formats cause that to happen. Could you give some examples. Please?

Bob
