Hi Pablo,

There is usually more than one way to skin a cat and that also applies to
many tasks in Excel, Word etc. Here is what I do:

Let's assume you want to select everything from cell A1 to J73, in other
words, 10 columns and 73 rows.
First, go to the beginning which in this case is A1.
Now press Control+G for the Go To command and type in J73.
Lastly, instead of pressing enter to go to J73, press Shift+Enter, this will
go to J73 and select all cells from A1 to J73 in the process.

Take care,
Sieghard

Ok, control + G is the keystroke to go to the cell that I want. But what is
the keystroke that I need to do to say, I want to select from this cell,
then go to the cell what ever cell, and say again, I want to stop selecting
hhere. I know how to navigate, but my problem is how to select those cells.
Just pressing the shift key is no going to work, because shift down, plus
control + g is no going to work.

if you know the top left cell and the lower right cell, you can use the go
to feature to select the range. for example, activate the go to feature,
type a1:z10 and press enter. everything from a1 to z10 will be (should be)
selected.

this also works if you should need to select more than one range. each range
is separated with a comma.

It works in 2013. I tried it, but fixed it back with ascending like I like it, but the Alt-V and going through the ribbons will get you to Arrange by, and in 2013, there are nine options. But to get it back to ascending, after getting it back, I had to go to Alt-V-V-S.

Bye for now,

Hola!

I am taking this upon myself to warn one and all that when pursuing the latest JAWS 18.nnn upgrade with AVG on your Win10 machine...it will crash the new installation.

And, it is a pain to rectify.

You must Uninstall AVG from your machine and then run a JAWS Repair.

It may require your contacting the Microsoft Accessability Line at;
(800) 936-5900 for their assistance, as did I.

Freedom Scientific cannot assist in this matter since they cannot log into your machine without a working JAWS copy running...as they told me.

Re: JAWS Scripting with 3270 emulators

Staton, Carl R <carl.staton@...>
 

I am wanting to be independent of the 3270 emulators.  Just supporting one emulator would be too limited.  JAWS can handle the keyboard and drive scripting, but seeing the 3270 screen text and size, and cursor location is not straight forward, but interfacing to the emulator would improve that tremendously.

JAWS Scripting with 3270 emulators

Staton, Carl R <carl.staton@...>
 

I am researching using JAWS with 3270 emulators. I currently have JAWS 17 and I have IBM’s PCOM and QWS3270 installed.

 

JAWS appears limited to ‘seeing’ 3270 characters that are Highlighted-White which requires forcing your emulator to override all colors to white and some emulators work better than others.

JAWS scripting also appears limited to ‘seeing’ as the cursor is positioned over 3270 screen characters.

 

I am trying to determine two basic points about JAWS scripting capabilities. 

 

1.       Can JAWS scripting retrieve the whole 3270 screen of characters - I see the GetLine function, but it is not obvious what it can do.

Could  a loop using the invisible cursor and GetLine function reliably pass through all 3270 rows quickly?

 

2.        Can scripting read any text file.  There is direct support for a couple .INI files but I do not see anything for reading text files in general.

 

I created a HLLAPI-based 3270 automation tool. It works with several 3270 emulators.   I would think I could drive that tool when JAWS saw any program attention key press (ie Enter), using the JAWS RUN function, and have the automation tool dump the entire screen text to a text file, along with the 3270 screen size and cursor location (row and column).  However, I do not see JAWS scripting functions to read the text file.

 

        If I can use the automation tool get the screen for a JAWS script, then I could also skip the need to force the emulator to override all colors to highlighted-white.

 

Can anyone comment on these points?

 

Thank you, Carl

Dear list,

When I try to upgrade my jaws 17 to 18 using the cd it works for a while and then gives me a Jaws runtime component error. Saying it could not install. Anyone know what this is and or what I need to do? thanks
