Try control g. In the dialogue box type your beginning cell (example b1) followed by a colon and then your ending cell (example z25). Press enter then press delete. That will delete the contents. To delete the actual cells follow the steps above but instead of pressing delete press the applications key and arrow to delete and choose from the options.

Hope this helps!

The problem is that if you don’t upgrade and keep purchasing the SMA

Re: Old vocalizer voices versus new vocalizer voices

 

The problem with very human sounding voices is that they will always sound funny at high speed. If you think we aren't there yet in terms of quality you just have to listen to the Amazon Echo, Alexa reading a Kindl book sounds absolutely amazing, but I doubt she would sound as good if she was talking twice as fast. I wouldn't want my wife or people around me talk to me as fast as I have set Eloquence.

I think that the K a r y n is the northern European spelling of the name - I like it.

If they ever could get the voices to sound more specifically human, they could record our books with them. Some places that I call now have pretty good sounding voices on their automated phone service, but I think that they have human voices programmed to say specific things. Within those confines, a human voice would work, but with constantly changing material, I guess they're not there yet with that.

I have a hard time admitting this but, I got so used to Eloquence's male voicing, of which I forget which character I have it set for, that I can't seem to do any computer work done in any efficient or timely manner with a better authentic sounding voice program.
Very strange but I guess my ear just tuned right in on it and I'm more efficient in the work I do.

Re: V 18 disapointment

 

I guess among all the Jaws 18 bashing I would like to say something positive. Jaws 18 may not be as much as an update as 16 was with Convenient OCR, but while some of you think this should have been there since version 1 I feel a bit different. Convenient OCR is a feature I sometimes use multiple times each day and for me it has fully replaced separate OCR software hence it’s also saving me money as I don’t have to maintain another software.

I should point out that I don’t work for FS or have any other connection, but I personally don’t mind giving them a couple of hundred bucks every 2 years to continue to improve, fix and add new features. I don’t think it’s realistic to expect them to do this for free, after all, they are not Apple who makes tons of money from their hardware or Google who gets rich by collecting and using your private information to advertise to you. Also, if you were Jonathan Mosen you would also put the new version into a positive light just as you would support any other company you worked for whether it’s as an employee or on contract. There is always NVDA for those who feel Jaws isn’t worth the money any more. I think it’s still the best screenreader out there and it continues to allow me to run my business to which I am thankful.

Sieghard

I have to defend 16, especially the OCR feature.  Agreed some of the alleged improvements through the years haven’t amounted to much, but this is a winner.  If u use Office 2013 or later, The ability to both create and edit PDF’s can be a real plus.  I’ve told the story on this list of the old ham radio manual that came to me as an image file and really needed a cleanup.  This combo can do the job.  Also, don’t forget PDF’s in the work place.

I must add to this discussion that I am "still" on JAWS 13 and Windows 7.  Frankly, I have seen nothing really worthwhile in any of the upgrades of either JAWS or Windows since these versions.  Most of the so-called "improvements" in JAWS are nothing more than fixes of things that did not work correctly or the addition of things that should have been there all along; like the mouse announcement thing now (finally) in v. 18, as others have commented.  What a racket indeed : (

Really? What makes you think the bundled synthesizer's days are numbered? Wouldn't that be a step backward? I remember it was considered quite a breakthrough back in 1997, having speech with nothing required but a standard sound card--something considered virtually impossible as recently as 1992. Fast busses and ample memory made them practical.

Maybe its time to get a tripple talk USB and take that for a spin. At
least it have a stereo headphone socket for easyer and better
connection to speakers. And know extra power needed. Those should be
fine if they decide to remove elloquence, wich I think they will do at
some point.

The difference between the two is just 4 units--65 to 69.
Within the male-female parameters, most can be made to sound
virtually identical by adjusting the pitch. The one

Re: Old vocalizer voices versus new vocalizer voices

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Digitized speech, rather than synthesized speech. Propagation and time station WWV is an excellent example of digitized speech. It's great in situations where the vocabulary is fairly limited. The talking clocks and calculators we discussed recently also provide examples of digitized speech. The APH talking clock software voice was provided by a Louisville broadcaster and talking book reader. I'd give you his name, but am not sure of the spelling.

I think that the K a r y n is the northern European spelling of the name - I like it.

If they ever could get the voices to sound more specifically human, they could record our books with them. Some places that I call now have pretty good sounding voices on their automated phone service, but I think that they have human voices programmed to say specific things. Within those confines, a human voice would work, but with constantly changing material, I guess they're not there yet with that.

A few people have commented that JAWS 18 doesn't work well with the Find feature in Word on their computer. Here is how it was originally put:

Start snippet:
Using Word 2010 and Jaws 18 I can no longer use Ctrl-F to activate the find command in a document. It appears to allow one search then nothing happens.
I can still access find using Alt-H, f, d but that is a bit tedious!!
When I stop Jaws 18 and start Jaws 17 the problem goes away and I can use Ctrl-F no problem.

I and at least one other person find the same in Word 2016. Anyone else finding this?

I finally found them. Probably I'll go back to Reid, but I'm trying
Glenn. I keep mine set pretty fast, so the higher pitched ones sounded
like they'd be harder to understand.
Thanks for getting me there.

Bye for now,

I like to clip along at about 40 with 84; not sure what
those numbers exactly mean, but I guess I am just used to
reading fast with Reid. Russell sounds like he has a mouth
full of chew tobacco.

Re: Can't turn off heading announcement

You could put Heading announcement in your dictionary, then
put Space, Space in the definition you want, see if that
stops it.

Most of what mobile Facebook says to me is quote 'heading
level 3'
quote. Sometimes there is also text, but that annoying
heading + level announcement keeps hammering along. I have
'announce headings'
turned off in quick settings, but it does no good. Any
suggestions as to how to shut up the silly heading + level
announcement?

Re: JAWS 18 possible problem in Word

Hi Steve! I'm wondering if you get the same problem when using the JAWS key plus Control plus F. I have found that it worked better for me in Word 2013. It might be worth a try.

Subject: JAWS 18 possible problem in Word

A few people have commented that JAWS 18 doesn't work well with the Find feature in Word on their computer. Here is how it was originally put:

Start snippet:
Using Word 2010 and Jaws 18 I can no longer use Ctrl-F to activate the find command in a document. It appears to allow one search then nothing happens.
I can still access find using Alt-H, f, d but that is a bit tedious!!
When I stop Jaws 18 and start Jaws 17 the problem goes away and I can use Ctrl-F no problem.
End snippet:

I and at least one other person find the same in Word 2016. Anyone else finding this?

Thanks,
Steve
