I think dictation would be well worth investigating.

In addition to what others have suggested, turning on sticky keys would
probably be a good idea, so that the student can press ctrl and alt
separately
instead of having to hold them down.

Hey guys,

Trying to figure out why i am having a problem. When i go to my drafts folder, jaws keeps starting to speak who the message is from, and it keeps coming up and saying alert, this is a draft message.
Any ideas? It's basicly cutting messages off.

Re: beware of malware bytes

Lynne Moore
 

Hi Group,
Marvin was just talking about Malware Bytes.  About a month ago, my Windows 7 PC got some Malware on it.  I have a virus checker and I thought that was all I needed.  Anyway, I lost a lot of files and had to reinstall windows.  I had someone run Malware Bytes for me because they said it was the best program to run, but it didn’t seem to work well with JAWS.  What do you recommend I would use that would work well with JAWS and that would also be effective?

Hi. if you use malware bytes, be aware, some versions, can mess up your system. This is what happened to my mum, she has a old Toshiba satellite running windows vista home, and she installed malware bytes, from my 8 gb usb stick, and then she did a quick scan, removed some items, then shut down, when she booted up her machine, later on that day, she plugged in the mouse, after to trying to do any thing, the arrow disappears, machine locks up, like windows explorer, lock up not responding,a white screen, all icons go, not connected to the internet. So the only way, was when she got the message, windows could not shut down properly, she went into safe mode, went to control panel, programs and feature, uinstalled malware bytes 2.2 , and then shutdown and restarted, had normal use of her machine, so I have removed it on my machine, only have super anti spyware free, avg free, and doing a windows defender scan at the moment,  for windows 10. So, try Spybot and destroy, capersky, but does need sighted help as the 2017 installer, asks you for a capture. Read this blog on david goldfield’s site, and he uses nvda, as his main screen reader. Never used that.

Sogiving a warning, malware bytes, maybe give you malware, and lock up and emss your machine, for us screen reader users, safe mode, no audio drivers, no speech.

Re: Word 2016 and Auto Numbering

 

Also, coming at it from the flip side of Mr. Griffiths' observations, I have always hated auto-numbering because there are times when I want the formatting that go with it and other times when I do not.  It's a simple matter to activate auto-numbering using ALT+H, N and then arrowing around to select the specific format (numbers followed by periods, numbers followed by parenthesis, uppercase Roman numerals, letters, etc.) that you want for that particular list when you want it.  Otherwise there are lots of times where I'm typing a number followed by some text where I darned well don't want Word deciding that I'm trying to create a numbered list.  While the hit enter twice to end a numbered list has worked for ages I don't even want the darned thing created automatically in the first place.

Re: Word 2016 and Auto Numbering

Steve Griffiths
 

Hi Ted,

I'm not sure when it came in. You've always been able to press Enter twice and the numbering would go away, but in earlier versions of Word it didn't apply the Normal style, hence the need for pressing Ctrl + Shift + N, as Ed mentioned. When I tested it in 2016, I found that the second press of Enter applied the Normal style for me, making it more straight forward.

Hi George,

Easiest way is to press Enter twice after the last item of the list. The first Enter creates a new numbered item, the second Enter changes that item to a standard paragraph; the number is removed and the style is changed to Normal. You don't get a blank line; if you press UpArrow you'll be on the last item of the list.

I can confirm Brian's listing of options is the same in Word 2016. Once you're on the Autoformat as you Type tab, you should be able to Tab or arrow through all the options.

George,

            I have Word 2010 but this particular set of options has been the same since Word 2010 according to the Microsoft documentation.  When I get to the Autoformat as you Type Tab, the following options are listed under the Apply as you type section as checkboxes in two columns:

First column:

Automatic bulleted lists

Border Lines

Built-in Heading styles

Second Column:

Automatic numbered lists

Tables

 

I am presuming you wish to turn off automatic numbering permanently, though you can, of course jump back in to that dialog again to turn it on.  I'm guessing that your not seeing the Automatic numbered lists might have something with how the screen reader is traversing the options in that dialog tab.  Try either searching for Automatic numbering using the screen reader search function or just brute force tabbing your way around until you land on it.  It has to be there somewhere because they always make a distinction between bulleted lists and numbered lists.
