I've not yet found instructions on how to "de-text box" documents and convert them to strictly plain text, which is what I presume you're trying to do.   There's probably a way to select a text box and remove the text box while preserving the text.

A tedious way to do this would be to select each text box one-by-one, hit CTRL+A to select all the text that's in it, CTRL+C to copy the text, and then paste that copied text into a new document.  I just tried that in Word 2010 and it works, but text boxes are implemented slightly differently than in earlier versions of Word and I have no old Word files with old-style text boxes to confirm that the same thing applies.  If you're stuck and in a hurry it's worth a try though.

NO argument on that.  However, I always like to do the disk installation first.  That allows me to choose the voices, add the help tutorials, OCR module, Etc. than I can bring it up to speed with a simple download—just my MO, nothing handed down from Sinai.

In regard to having an optical drive, Ted responded, "I was just thinking that installing JAWS from a master disk is the easiest way to do it--one clean, easy step."

And given my recent experiences with FS that's a loaded proposition.  Virtually any time I've reported a problem of any sort they have me download the latest version of JAWS (within the release running on a given client computer) and either reinstall it or do a repair install. 

To be perfectly honest, this sort of policy is far from limited to FS.  I advise my clients in general not to use the discs that come with various devices or pre-packaged software anymore.  No one ever knows how long a given disc has been sitting on the shelf and how many patches or updates have been applied since it was pressed.  I encourage people to go to the support page for the specific thing they're dealing with and to download the "freshest of the fresh" version from there before installing.  I've found that avoids a lot of problems.

I want to have an optical drive because I'm still in the process of digitizing my music collection, the majority of which is on CD.  There's no way to do that if you don't have an optical drive to work with, and I don't prefer to hassle with an external one.

 You can also purchase an external DVD drive for very little money. If portability is important and you only use the drive occasionally, this might be a good solution.

Re: A new, but still tiresome, way to reply to messages - Trying to "reply to" messages, without success!

 

Jim,

         After a bit of digging I think I may have found the cause, and solution, to your problem.

         If you receive the daily digest in plain format, hitting the link after "Reply to this message" for a given message throws you into your web browser with the correct groups.io thread open for response.

         If you receive the daily digest in full featured format, hitting the "Reply to Group" link at the end of a given message causes your e-mail client to be triggered, a compose window opened, and the subject prepopulated with "Re: <message subject that you're replying to>" and the To: field prepopulated with the correct group e-mail address.  You can tell if you have the plain format daily digest because these open with the words, "This is a digest for," while the full featured format opens differently and includes a Graphic at the top and reads differently at the beginning.

         By the way, this seems completely counterintuitive to me.  Were I a plain text digest recipient I'd probably have chosen that because I want to use e-mail as my primary interaction method while if I were I full featured digest recipient I'd be far more likely to be using the web interface (or at least as likely as e-mail).

         You can very easily test this out by changing your digest subscription.  Try flip-flopping from plain text to full featured and see if you get what you've been looking for.  The e-mail instructions to do this are:

Email Delivery Options

To receive plain digests instead of individual messages send an email to:
nvda+digest@groups.io

To receive full featured digests instead of individual messages send an email to:
nvda+fulldigest@groups.io

To receive individual messages instead of digests, send an email to:
nvda+single@groups.io

To stop receiving messages via email (you may still read messages on the Web), send an email to:
nvda+nomail@groups.io

Re: A new, but still tiresome, way to reply to messages - Trying to "reply to" messages, without success!

HAMILTON
 

Dave:

 

In answer to your question, and for other listers reading this, the fact that I am trying to reply to messages on the “digest” , using the “reply link” provided, may need to be repeated for clarification.  Using ctrl-r works only if I were to be replying to a message that did not come as part of a “JFW digest”, i.e. came directly to me from another lister.  And,I have tried ctrl-r to reply to sender from the “digest”; but, it did not work.  Whereas, I usually have been trying to reply to specific messages within the “digest”, using the “reply ...” link which takes me to the website.  Don’t worry; I will not repeat the long explanation that I sent out recently!  :)  :) 

 

So, no, I was not replying to an individual - the “short answer”!

 

It’s really strange that I have absolutely no trouble “muting threads”, using the digest link for this and going to the website.  It’s only a few clicks away.

 

As I say, what I am doing should work; but, it is frustrating for me to not be able to do something that I was able to do several months ago.  I’ll just have to get over that, and use this “back-door” method for replying “to all”!

 

Also, I know that I can copy and paste a message sender’s e-mail address into the “To:” field in an e-mail message, do the same with the subject field and send my reply directly to that person, if that is the only person to whom I want to reply.  However, I mostly reply “to all”.

 

So, thanks for all “replies”.  If this does indeed end up in the “digest”, I will stick with this method.  ...  At least, it will have proven that it works - with much less work than with my last attempt.

I need to recommend a computer for a client who will be using JAWS with the state footing the bill. I am thinking about a 22 inch Desktop tablet that can sit stationary as well as be slipped into a bag and carried. I have one at my job that I use a keyboard with and even though it is touch screen I use it primarily as a desktop. I run Jaws 17 and windows 10 on it without any problems. I am thinking the portable rout for this guy in case he gets a job and needs to bring his own set up to work. He could just transport this back and forth to work and home. The one that I use seems to be pretty robust and I prefer it over a laptop. If anyone has any suggestions maybe you can point me in a direction for a good model.

It's possible that MS-Word is creating the next number after JAWS has read the next blank line.

I am noticing when writing a numbered list in Word that when you hit enter,
JAWS does not say next number (says "blank") but it does appear on screen.
It behaves differently if cursor is end of document or in the middle of

 Jessica, the answer to your first question depends on how you're interacting with the group.  If you're receiving either the plain or full featured digests and replying using the links in the digest you should presume that all participants will see your response.  If you're using the Groups.io web interface there are buttons directly below the compose window that give you the option to either "Send to Group" or "Send to Sender."  The first posts a response that all participants can read while the second sends a private e-mail to the person who posted the message to which you've elected to respond.

As a general rule in all forums I've ever participated in, it is not necessary to reply to each response and that can, indeed, clutter up a thread.  If a lot of people have pitched in to help a "thanks to all" post will generally suffice as acknowledgment.

If your laptop does not have a physical number pad I'd think that JAWS would detect that on installation and set your keyboard layout to laptop instead of desktop.  If this is the case then CAPS LOCK becomes the JAWS Key rather than INSERT.  I can't find reference to INSERT+NUM PAD 8 in my JAWS 16 Keystrokes documentation.  

Say Line is INSERT+UP ARROW if using desktop keyboard layout or CAPS LOCK+I if using laptop keyboard layout.  The Keystrokes documentation should install in the Help directory under the JAWS installation folder when you install JAWS.  It separates out the keystrokes used for desktop keyboard layout versus laptop keyboard layout.  One word of warning, though - if your laptop computer does have a number pad on it JAWS is probably installed with desktop keyboard layout.  Every client I've ever had who uses a laptop where the laptop has a physical number pad has had JAWS install with the desktop keyboard layout enabled by default.
