Re: Adding Juliet Pro embosser to Windows 10

"Kevin Hourigan " <kevinthourigan@...>
 

I have been fighting with my View Plus Embosser since I bought a new laptop in February without success. I am in conversation with their support, but they will not do a remote, and keep sending me things to try. Unfortunately many of these suggestions are not Jaws friendly, and I am consistently recruiting sighted assistance.

Good luck,

Kevin. .

This isn't a JAWS question but I am trying to get my Juliet Pro 60 to work with a Windows 10 computer.  This is an older printer.  Has anyone been able to do this?

Re: JAWS and installing Adobe products--happy ending, really this time

Sandra Streeter
 

Hi, all,
 
I knew my Aspergers stubbornness would come in handy! I have spent hours on trying to get Youtube back (even going to Yourtube, in case it had been an accessibility issue), to no avail. Early this morning, after finally Googling “using Youtube with JAWS screen reader,” I learned a procedure which I hope will more quickly kill headaches for anyone who, like me, shut down the webpage sounds in their I.E., as they were playing around with things for whatever reason (mine being, I THOUGHT—obviously in error, that I didn’t need web-page sounds). If you ever accidentally shut the web-page sounds down, do the following: alt to menu in I.E.; right-arrow to tools, enter; go to multimedia (I believe with down-arrow), toggle the web-page sounds on. If Youtube wasn’t working before, it will now resurrect—I could see that the scroll-bar for time elapsed in videos was running, but no sound! So, now I can get on with the rest of my weekend. Good thing I was somewhat insomniac and decided against staying in bed, in favor of trying to resolve this—SO gratifying!

Hello,

I have tested the formula below, and it will do exactly what you want.  I had to use 3 different functions joined together to get it done, but like I said, it does work very well.

It picks a number between 2 and 200, then it will give you the persons name that is in that cell.

To run the formula again just hit f9, and it will pick another random number and display the name.

If you have any questions regarding the specifics of the formula, you can feel free to ask offlist.

 

Just copy the formula and paste it in the cell you want your results:

=indirect(address(randbetween(2,200),1))

 

Hope this helps,

 

Chris

Re: Using PowerPoint

Gudrun Brunot
 

Hi Bonnie: I dug through some old notes I've got. I'm no expert, but here
is a bit of material that might help you. I've cut and paste them into one
message here.

If you are using Jaws, you can read the powerpoint file without the need to
convert it to any other format.
When you open the document in powerpoint, press f5 to get the slide show,
then you use your normal arrow keys to read.
Jaws also provides some shortcut keys that you can use to navigate around
the file, you can press insert+h to get to them.
You can also press (application key) then choose go to slide sub menue, this
will enable you to explore the titles of all slides in case you like to go
to one of them in particular.
If you like to move to the next slide, just press space bar.

when you open your presentation in PowerPoint, press F6 to cycle through
the status bar, ribbon, and various panes. In Jaws, you move through panes
for notes, slide thumbnails, and slides. In NVDA, you only move to the slide
pane/area.

When you're in the slide area, the screen reader announces the title of the
current slide. Press the down/up-arrow to move to the next/previous slide.
Again, the screen reader announces the title of the next/previous slide. If
you're in the slide Thumbnails (with Jaws), you can alternatively press
space and backspace to move through the presentation.

Once you're on a slide you want to edit, press tab. The first thing you come
to is the title of the slide; arrow or start typing to edit/translate. When
you finish working with the title, press escape to exit editing mode, and
press tab again. the next thing you come to is the content area, which
normally contains a bulleted list. Again, press an arrow key or just start
typing to edit/translate. Again, when you finish, press escape to exit
editing mode, and tab to find out if there are other edit fields on the
screen.

My own experience is that, tables, charts, and so on are often inserted as
objects, so they're not always accessible. Occasionally, even the bulleted
lists are inserted this way, so you can't really edit. You have to print the
presentation out, scan it, and retype everything manually.
also, these objects aren't always included if you convert the file to rtf.

When you finish editing/translating your slide, press F6 several times to
get back to the slide area. That seems to be the only way to move out of the
individual slide with both screen readers. With NVDA, you sometimes have to
press F6 to cycle through the status bar, etc., a couple of times. when you
are back in the slide list, down-arrow to the next slide. then press tab as
before and start editing.

That's all there is to it.

If you're creating slides, go into the insert menu and select New Slide.
Tab to the first edit field, enter text, hit escape, tab to the next edit
field, enter more text, hit escape, etc. When you're done with the first
slide, go back into the Insert menu, select New Slide, and so on.
To return to a previous slide, press F6 repeatedly to move to the Slides
list, arrow to the slide you want, press tab, and start editing.

Gudrun

Re: JAWS and installing Adobe products--story not over yet

Sandra Streeter
 

Well, I THOUGHT I had Youtube, but now it is not cooperating—again! I want to have a sighted person check it out the next time I try, so they can tell me about messages JAWS might be missing. Wondering if I’ve been “banned” for some unaccountable reason, or if I need to go in and change some account info (e.g., inform them of my new password—I don’t remember submitting a password for Youtube use ever, but maybe, years and years ago, I clicked on an item that said, “use this info for Youtube” or “for all Google accounts”... If I just have a setting wrong somewhere other than those issues, maybe there’s a message about that and I’m not picking up on it. Will keep you posted. Has anyone else experienced going to Youtube, clicking on a desired search result, and getting no result beyond the “seek slider, etc,” and other usual stuff—but no video? If so, tell me how you got out of the jam. There is a new item on my Youtube screen about clicking on a photo or something for ID purposes (I know I’m not expressing that well, because I’m not actually looking at that screen—and even if I was, I’m a lousy auditory person, so going back and forth between that screen and this message to get the wording right isn’t an option, and I doubt it would let me copy/paste it in for you all to see).

Shouldn't you be able to do that in the synthesizer and braille

and you can check or uncheck them as you desire, I would expect
braille devices to be the same.

Re: Random Function in Excel

Nicole Massey <nyyki@...>
 

I'd use randbetween instead of rand in this instance, and here's what I'd
do. Others may have different suggestions.
Put your names in column b, then do a randbetween formula in column a with a
huge number to minimize repetition, say a hundred million. The command is
=randbetween(0,100000000) and put it next to every name in the list. Then
sort the names smallest to largest, using the context sensitive menu or
whatever other sorting path you want to take.
