I tag a lot of PDFs to make them accessible. I'm still stuck on Adobe XI, I have no desire to switch. If I go to accessibility and run a scan it will tell me what needs to be tagged.
I agree with Brian, if it's actually an image file you will probably need to use OCR.

Laura,

          Also know that if you open something in Adobe Reader and you get the statement "blank" from JAWS it's almost certainly an old PDF that was scanned as an image PDF, which means each page, even if it's entirely composed of text is, for all practical intents and purposes, a picture.  If you know that the content is text then you will need to run OCR on the document before it can be read.

           Even thought you can open PDFs using more recent versions of MS-Office, I believe that only works for PDF files that already have a text layer and are searchable.  If someone can try to open a PDF file that they know to be an image PDF using Office and report back I'd love to know exactly what office does and whether there's any "behind the scenes" OCR as part of the conversion process.  I'm suspecting not.

I was going through a document in Word 2013 that was given to me at
work, and I noticed that Jaws kept saying Vertical Tab from time to time.
I understand that tabs can help with the placement of text in your
document, but I have never heard of vertical tabs before. So if
someone could explain what a vertical tab does, and what keystrokes
would you use to add a vertical tab to a document that you were
creating, then I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Re: Word 2013 Question

"Kevin Hourigan " <kevinthourigan@...>
 

The thing I would like to know is how to get rid of them easily. Often when
I copy a text from this list for example and paste it into my notes every
line of speech says vertical tab, and I need to go to the end of each line,
press delete on the vertical tab, press space, and enter to fix it so Jaws
is reading the text without saying vertical tab at the end of each line.
Tedious what! Smile.
Cheers Kevin.

Re: Word 2013 Question

Martin Blackwell
 

A vertical tab is one of the rarely used tabs (as far as I know) that you
can have in Word. It is a short vertical line in the document in that tab
position. You can actually tab right through it to put text on either side
of it. If you use it in several paragraphs it creates a vertical line that
runs through the document. I'm having trouble describing it. Hope that
makes sense. I've never seen it used in a document.

I discovered this yesterday. I also found out that there's an option in the

running the old DOS-style command interpreter. In addition, this menu offers
an option to run the command prompt as administrator, which is very

are there any other new things I need to know about with the new features

The desktop and the start menu will be different from whatever you've
experienced in older versions of Windows. There is a new settings application
for configuring your system (new, at least, since Windows 7, which is my point
of comparison). There are other major and minor differences - it all depends
on what you've used previously.

The Windows 7 system at work only arrived this week, so I'm also new to it.

An easy way to restart jaws is to hit jaws+windows+f4.

That has worked for many years now.

If you're on the correct page, you'll find two combo boxes, one to select
the
voices (you want Vocalizer Expressive) and another to choose the
language.
Once you've done this, you should be able to navigate through the page to
find
the download links. The next step is to download the installer, run it,
and
follow the prompts to complete the installation. Finally, restart JAWS
and
select the new voice in your voice profile.

I hope something in the above explanation helps you to move beyond
whatever
the problem might be.

Re: track changes Word 2016

Hello Maryann,

I stumbled across this post from the Jaws list in my notes, and accept neither credit nor blame for its content. My apologies to its author for the lack of recognition.

Cheers Kevin.

Track Changes

In  a document with tracked changes, you can choose whether to have all the changes visible on screen, or to hide them. Sounds like your document has them on screen and you want to hide them.

You need to go to the Review tab and in the tracking group, change the setting for the "display for review" combo box from "show markup" to "final". 

There are a number of ways you can get to this option. Here are two: 

If you're not using the virtual ribbon, you can press Alt, R, TD, and Down-arrow to Final and press Enter.

If you are using the virtual ribbon, you could use Alt, R, R, Enter, T, Down-arrow, and Enter

 

I assigned the "Next" and "Previous" commands to the quick access

toolbar. That way, when I want to go forward I use Alt plus 4, 

and if I want to go backwards, I use Alt plus 3. That way, I move

by revision. It is at least fast. I thought you said you were in Word 2010. When I checked the key sequence, I found that Alt followed by r and then f moves back a change and Alt followed by r and then h moves forward to the next change. (I had to check since I assigned these keys so long ago that I forgot them.)  Actually, that key sequence does not has semantic significance at first blush, but "r" does relate to "revisions," though it actually stands for "review" in the Microsoft world, and f is to the left (going backwards on a line) and h is to the right (going forward on a line. So, it isn't impossible to remember. To assign a key sequence to the quick access toolbar, just hit alt and then r. be sure to hit tab next. Then, hit right arrow until you come to the end of the comment section. The track change sequence of ribbon commands                       should come next. Then use the tab                                       key (otherwise, you will skip over some of the commands). You will come to a series of 4 ribbon commands. The first is previous revision, then comes accept and move to next. Then follows reject and move on. Finally you come simply to next revision.  Once you have landed on the option you want, JAWS should announce the key sequence to get there faster. Confirm that the key sequences I gave you (above) are correct. Again, once there, hit the applications key and choose to put the command you want on the quick access toolbar. You should do previous first. That should assign it a lower numbered hotkey (like my Alt plus 3 for previous). Then assign your next revision key to the quick access toolbar (or QAT). That should give you a  higher number, e.g., Alt plus 4. Of course, your numbers will depend upon what you already have on the QAT. Out of the box,  Word has some utterly worthless commands (commands where other shortcut keys are faster). Get rid of those, and put useful ones on the QAT. Of course, Alt plus r and then f and Alt plus r and then h isn't really all that bad. The only unfortunate thing is that "f" gets associated in my mind with "forward," when it is really backward. As for comments, the same principles apply. JAWS, however, in my experience, does a lousy job with comments. Once inside them, it is nearly impossible to get out and not land somewhere entirely unexpected.  Using the Windows plus semicolon is about as good as any. Find the comment you want that way and then tab to OK. Press ENTER and  you'll be in the document (right in front of the comment. If, in your verbosity menu, you have turned on the reading of comments,  as your cursor passes over the comment, you will hear it. If you ever get inside a comment and want to get out, may God have mercy on you? The only way I've found to get out of a comment halfway gracefully is to make sure you are in "draft" before you start the adventure. If you are in "Print," you may have to closedown Word to get out. If you are in "Draft," escape will get you out, but you may be thrown to the top of the document. Also, you know JAWSKEY plus z allows you to use navigation keys. In a small document, those work OK. In a big document, not so much. Hope this helps. As I mentioned in a recent post DO NOT depend on JAWS commands to tell you the color of the track changes. JAWS,  especially JAWS 16, is hopelessly unreliable.

I have office 365 on my computer.  I tried to put in track changes using ctrl shift E but my words went into the document instead of into track changes.  Did track changes switch commands or did I use the wrong command?
