Re: How to insert a 1-digit fraction into a 2013 word document

 

I don't doubt that hearing "vulgar fraction" or just "vulgar" followed by something like one-third is annoying, but how else would a screen reader make clear that you're dealing with the single character format of a fraction as opposed to say, one slash three, for one-third typed out?

I just played with NVDA with several lines that used the three-character numerator slash denominator for one and two thirds, followed by lines with the vulgar fraction character for same.  It reads "one slash three Cuban pesos milk" for what's meant as one-third cup milk and "two slash three Cuban pesos water."  The lines that follow that use the vulgar fraction characters are read as one-third and two-thirds (with no "vulgar" or "vulgar fraction") ahead of it and the word cup is read as cup, not Cuban pesos.

Window-Eyes does the 1 or 2 slash 3 for the three character fractions and reads cup in that context normally.  But, it reads vulgar fraction followed by either "one third" or "two thirds" for the lines that use them.  Cup is pronounced normally.

I'm guessing that if you frequently use vulgar fractions other than the incredibly common one fourth, one half, and three fourths - which I think get consistently read sans any indication of the use of a single vulgar fraction character - that a tweaking of your pronunciation dictionary to drop the "vulgar fraction" part will be needed.

Re: print email from outlook 2016

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Hi Stan,

 

The only difference between our setup is that I am running the Jaws 18 Beta, I had to reinstall my laptop from scratch with Windows 10 Professional 64 Bit because somehow in my previous installation something was corrupted and I was not able to set up any Outlook email accounts. Anyhow, I am currently also running Windows 10 Anniversary Edition and updated to the latest update, I have Office 2016, but since we are not that far from the public Jaws release and it seems to be working well I decided not to even put Jaws 17 back on this machine.

I just pressed Control+P when I had your email open and was able to tab through the options for printing until I came to the actual “Print” button. It took me 8 tabs forward or 3 tabs back (Shift+Tab) after I pressed Control+P. When the print dialogue first opened it put me on where it says “Specify how you want the item to be printed” and it is on a combo box and “Memo Style” is selected.

Re: How to insert a 1-digit fraction into a 2013 word document

 

Peter,

            No, the official name for these symbols is "vulgar fraction" followed by what's logical for the actual fraction you've inserted.

            It's the technical term for a numerator slash denominator format for a fraction, and that's exactly what they appear like as a single character.

That list does not contain the one third or two thirds
symbols.

I have always used Word, to generate the single symbol, for
the other fractions: one-half, one-quarter and
three-quarters.

In Word, just type the 3 characters "1/2". When you press
the space-bar, the 3 characters will become the single
symbol.
This also applys for the fractions: one-quarter and
three-quarters.

How do you create the single symbol for the fractions:
one-third and two-thirds?

I am looking for a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device that is
accessible to set up and maintain using JAWS17. Does anyone have a
recommendation?

I don't have a NAS device, but my router has a USB port to which a hard
drive or SSD can be attached.

It runs OpenWRT, which is very accessible both via its Web interface and
over an ssh terminal interface (i.e., the Linux command line available from
the device).

If you buy hardware that supports OpenWRT, you can always install OpenWRT if
you aren't satisfied with the manufacturer's firmware.


Re: How to insert a 1-digit fraction into a 2013 word document

That list does not contain the one third or two thirds symbols.

I have always used Word, to generate the single symbol, for the other fractions: one-half, one-quarter and three-quarters.

In Word, just type the 3 characters "1/2". When you press the space-bar, the 3 characters will become the single symbol.
This also applys for the fractions: one-quarter and three-quarters.

How do you create the single symbol for the fractions: one-third and two-thirds?

Hi Margaret,
Press, Insert / Jaws key + 4, from the number row, to open the symbols list, press the letter, o, until you land on, one half / ½, & press enter to insert the fraction into your document.  Do these steps at the point you want to insert the fraction / symbol.
Take care.

Hello Everyone,

 

I have JAWS 17, MS Word 2013, and Windows 7, and I need to know how to type in a 1-digit fraction such as one-half for a cooking recipe.  I really would appreciate some step-by-step instructions on how to do this.
