Re: Actions: Undo Auto Action

 

Carolyn & Ed,

        Do either one of you happen to have a sighted assistant within shouting distance when you get this message?   I ask only because it's sometimes easier to determine what has actually caused it when the context can be seen, as the alerts often are placed near "the offending location" and sometimes have dropdown items you can access (such as the paste options in the case of paste - but I'd expect a screen reader would actually gain focus on this one).

        I get exactly where you're coming from.  It has taken me ages to adjust (and I still haven't to the extent that actual screen-reader users must) to the amount of auditory input one has to deal with in order to use a computer with a screen reader.  It's enough to drive one mad at times, and anything extraneous that you know you can ignore and that you might be able to dispose of entirely is a prime candidate for turning off.

I get that annoying thing without using Control-Alt-V. It is
one giant pain in the neck. I have no idea what it is, what
it does or why, neither do I want to know, just want it to
go away NOW! I just ignore it and do whatever I'm doing,
even though it goes like a little yapping dog. I am a pretty
good ignorer though. I'm not a pretty good I don't like
itter.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

Occasionally, in Microsoft Word 2013, I will hear "Action:
Undo auto action." This is quite annoying. I'm using JAWS
17, Windows 10 and, of course, Word 2013.

I have not been able to identify precisely what triggers
this, though I'm starting it is a "paste special" action,
i.e., control + alt + v.

That allows me to paste in any text in pretty much any form
I want, including plain text. It has been a handy feature,
and I'm not willing to give it up, but if it is causing that
stupid message, I'll have to consider doing so.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to avoid the
annoying message.

I do not ever remember getting it with JAWS 16 or with Word
2010.

This is the set of steps I originally tried, and that worked for me previously.

 

For some reason, though, I can’t get them to work any longer.

 

But, some folks on the list have given me alternative steps which do work, so I think I’m now all set.

 

Thanks for taking the time to reply to my original quiry.

Hello Tom

The fact that you are running your personal g-mail account through Outlook should not matter. I am still using Outlook 2010 with Windows 7, so I probably see something different than you with 2016, but after I type the words or names that I am looking for, I tab down 2-3 times until I get to a close search button and press the space bar and it takes me directly to the actual email that I am looking for.

Re: One note

 

I bought John Martin's scripts a couple of years ago and played around with OneNote. The scripts definitely work, but I still found it just not intuitive to use and again abandoned it. I wish between Microsoft and Jaws they would make this application fully accessible and easy to use and I don't understand why I haven't yet found a single cross-platform app that meets these criteria. I want something which allows for easy creation, organisation and classification of notes, it has to give me the ability to search these notes and allow for text, voice, picture and video or at least text, audio and pictures.
I have a specialty retail business and we get a ton of requests for products which people either want us to order or find out more for them and also have to deal with warranties and so on. I want just a simple program which let's me create a note which I can search and assign to a customer's name and which then allows myself and my employees to update with information and, in the case, of a warranty, with pictures of the defective item. It would also be fantastic if I could add reminders to the note and ultimately set its status to inactive.

Regards,
Sieghard

I am unsure if the scripts are being developed anymore.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Re: Actions: Undo Auto Action

 

 Ed,

          All sorts of things can trigger Word to kick in to one of it's "auto correct" actions and you're hitting one or more of them.  Even though this article at techrepublic.com is quite old, and deals with a much earlier version of Word, it remains a good synopsis of some of the things that might trigger the warning you're receiving.

          I don't have Word 2013, but Word 2010, but I believe the access method to the Auto Correct stuff remained the same.  If you want to tweak your auto correct options:

  1. Hit ALT+F, followed by T or ALT followed by F followed by T to open the Word Options dialog.
  2. Hit Down Arrow three times to navigate to the Proofing Tab
  3. Hit ALT+A to open the Auto Correct Options Dialog
  4. Navigate to the Auto Format, Auto Format as you Type, and Auto Correct tabs and have a look around.  You'd have to figure out what you might or might not want to turn off.

You might also be getting this warning mostly as a result of the Paste Options Button functionality being turned on by default, particularly since you describe pasting (regardless of whether using straight paste or paste special).  Have a look at this article entitled, Control the formatting when you paste text, at the Microsoft Office help site.

How Do I Make JAWS Speak Item Numbers

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I want to make this a permanent change within JAWS 10.0, but I'm not sure how to go about it. I want to make JAWS speak item numbers each time I scroll to an item with the arrow keys. For example, "6 of 20". I know it does that the first time I go into a list view or a combo box, but I'm not sure how to make it so that JAWS always speaks that particular status. Is it something I would change within the Configuration Manager? I'm confused!

            This is a complicated one.  What version of Outlook are you using?  The e-mail indexer is built in from Outlook 2010 onward, but can be turned off.

            One thing to definitely try is going to Settings, Privacy, Contacts Pane and make sure that Windows itself is granted access to contacts to see if that makes any difference.  It shouldn't if you're using Outlook, but this could be one of those hidden interactions.

             By the way, are you getting e-mail messages being shown in search results if you actually use the search box (which is the Cortana box - same thing) on the taskbar?  I'm just wondering if there might be designed in differences between search depending on how you invoke it.

Hi all

 

As mentioned earlier, I switched to windows 10 last week  from windows 7

 

In windows 7, when I entered the name of a person from wom I received e-mails in the past into the search box on the start menu, I received a list of all the mails I received from this person.  That was without going into outlook.  However this is not the case in the search box after pressing the windows key in windows 10.  This was a handy feature to have.  Is there a way to get this functionality back?

A Question Regarding Displaying iPhone screen on a Windows 10, Anniversary Edition, Notebook Computer

Mark
 

Hello Everyone,

I would like to use the Airplay feature of iOS 10 to mirror my iPhone's
display on a Windows 10, Anniversary Edition, PC.

I have done several Google searches and know that there is a lot of free
software that claims to be able to accomplish this, however, I have also
learned that many of the claims are exaggerated.

Somewhere along the way, I learned that the new Microsoft Connect App,
introduced in the Windows 10, Anniversary Edition, is supposed to be
compatible with the Airplay protocol. According to the various comments,
this is supposed to allow your Windows 10 PC to act as an Airplay receiver
which is, of course, exactly what I wish to accomplish.

Has anyone been successful in mirroring an iOS display on a Windows 10 PC?
If so, please describe how it was done.

All replies welcomed,

Mark

Hello, I am running Jaws 17 on a windows seven work machine. I am attempting to pick dates from a calendar of links for dates. This is a web based system.

Any ideas on how to get this to work. The name of the system is E Donor. Thanks, much Tom
