some excelle issues

Jed Barton
 

Hey guys,

OK, i have not used excelle in years, but am finding myself needing to use it for a particular application. So i launch the file, and it launches excelle, and it says a 1, and then it keeps saying please wait. I can get no further than that. I can't even arrow around the file. I waited for voer 4 minutes. The size of the file is about 796 K or something like that. Any ideas why i can't navigate it? I'm running windows 10, office 365. Any thoughts?

Cheers,
Jed

Marquette, Ed <ed.marquette@...>
 

Here is an easy way:

  1. Press JAWS Key plus F-2 Key;
  2. Arrow to Settings Center and press ENTER (You may use first letter navigation);
  3. Type “number”;
  4. “Number and Date Processing should come up;
  5. Arrow to that you wish to change and follow the prompts.

What is the command to change how jaws says numbers?  I found it under utillities last time.  But I forgot where to go after that.  I’m using jaws 18.0.1835.

Re: control shift d for dictionary manager. fill in the fields.

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

Control-Shift-D is to permanently delete something. Insert-D gives the Dictionary, then you hit Control-Shift-D, if you want your definition to appear in any program. If you want it program specific, just hit Enter to add your entry.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

I understand, but I was simply answering his question about the replacement part of the dictionary manager.
On another list, I've seen two other individuals expressing the same issue.

Now everytime I come across jaws, it'll say jfw. It will still display
jaws on the window but the pronounciation will be jfw.

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.

email and thunderbird problem

Jed Barton
 

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.

Thanks,
Jed
