Re: outlook 2010 and jaws 17

Michael Mote
 

I had to play around with this myself using the latest build of JAWS 17.  The traditional method of switching addresses didn’t seem to work for me.  JAWS announces from button.  I press the spacebar, and then use my arrow keys to select the account that I want to send from.  Before, when I tabbed to the from field, I believe it showed as a dropdown box.  Hope this info is helpful.

Hello Judy,

Using Office 365 I have been updated to Office 2016, and since I purchased a new laptop, am also updated to Windows 10.

The attachment keystroke insert a works fine in Outlook 2016.

One drive is a little different since you may be working directly on the web site. I still have not figured out how to delete files from it.

Cheers Kevin.

Hello,

I am using Jaws 17, Outlook 2016,and Windows 10, and pressing shift tab a few times takes me there.

Also as I write this, I notice that arrowing down below my response brings me to the “From” box.

So far I haven't run into any settings in JAWS that I could not change and save.  I probably just jinxed myself there.

Hi Michael,

JAWS is usually just as fast inside the shell as outside.  Yes it sometimes lags but that happens outside the shell too.  What my company did was place my JAWS inside the shell on a dedicated server.  Log-in is pretty smooth.  There is one point that I have to hit enter where JAWS does not speak.  That is when the JAWS on my regular is shut out and the other one is loading.  The Insert+F10 does not work on my Windows 7 in the shell like it does n on my regular desktop.  It is doable but you are going to have to do some playing with it.  Insert+F5, F6, F7 do work though.

Re: Office 365 & JAWS

Hi Judy!  We switched to Office 365 at my company a little over a month ago.  For our blind users, I was able to switch their web based email to the light version.  This allows you to handle things like attachments much easier.  You can also read email much easier too.  If you have this functionality, I would utilize it for sure.  In the standard set-up, the email part of Office 365 is not very user friendly for someone who is blind.

Hope this helps!

Re: saving a favorite

Tom Behler
 

I activate my alt key, and then use my right arrow key a number of times until I get my list of favorites.

 

In my case of Firefox, they are called favorites because I imported my original internet explorer favorites into Firefox using a program called Plain Old Favorites.

 

I think that program might still be on this old Windows 7 computer.
