Subject: Setting Tabs In A Word Document

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I  know I have done this before, but I’m  having trouble remembering how to set tabbs in a Microsoft Word document.

 

I am trying to create a report form for a project I’m working on, and want to set three or four tabs for each line on the form.

 

I am using Word 2016 here, with Windows 7.

 

Thanks for any memory jogs anyone can provide.

If anyone wants to see if they can get this file to read, my email is
jed@jedbarton.com
I'll send you the file. I'm having horrible luck. This is not good, as this is the simplest text file, and i just need to get some info out of it, but i can't make jfw read it.

Hi Jed,

Can you select all the text, copy it to the clipboard, & paste it into
a text file, or a new Word document? If the document isn't of some
private nature, send it to me off list, & I'll see if I can extract the
contents from it, & send it back to you.
Take care.

Something is major wrong ehre guys. I finaly got word to shut down.
Then i clicked on the file again, but i can see no text. Is there any
way to get around this? It's really annoying. I've already wasted 45
minutes on this. All i wanna do is read this document. Any ideas on
what to do? When i do control home, it just says top of file. It
almost sounds like something is blocking jfw from reading it. Any ideas?

Hi, when I open a document that I had created when I was using windows
2003
and jaws eight, when I open the document in windows seven, and Jaws13,
and
word 2010, it says, part one compatibility mode, what does that mean?
Thanks
and when I go to each chapter in the document, it says heading level two,
not used to that info, what does each mean? Thanks sue

Hello SusieQ,

Word 2010 uses Compatibility Mode to maintain compatibility with earlier
versions of Word.
If you get a document from a person that was created in an earlier
version
of Word or you open a document you created in an earlier version of
Word the
word "compatibility" appears in the title bar. JAWS reads the title
bar of
a document when you open it and so you hear the fact that the document
was
created with an earlier version of Word but has been made compatible for
you. Documents created in Word 2010 are stored in an open XML format.
Documents created in Word 2003 or earlier were stored in a binary
format so
in order to open them in Word 2010 Microsoft uses the compatibility mode.
If a file has a .DOC extension it will open in compatibility mode. Even
documents with a .DOCX extension created in Word 2007 could open in
compatibility mode because some of the features of Word 2010 were not
supported in Word 2007 such as some text effects and OpenType typographic
features).

Headings in Word are styles. A style consists of such things as the
type of
font, font size, font color, character spacing, etc. A heading 1
style in
word 2010 uses a Cambria font size 14 and is a blue color. The
heading 2 is
the same except the font is one point smaller and is a 13-point Cambria
font. The normal style in Word uses a size 11 Calibri font with a black
foreground color.

If each chapter in your file starts with text in a heading 2 style
then you
can quickly move from chapter to chapter by browsing by heading. You can
list headings by using JAWS key with function key 6, using up or down
arrow
to the heading to jump to and pressing enter key. You could also
choose to
move between only heading 2 text by going into navigation quick keys
using
JAWS key with Z and then pressing the number 2 to move to next heading or
shift with 2 to move to previous heading 2 in your document. When
using the
navigation quick keys you are working in a read-only mode so you will
need
to use JAWS key with Z to return to editing mode. You can also use
function
key 6 in Word 2010 and move to the Search pane. Use the "browse by
heading"
tab of the pane and use tab key to the list of headings to browse.
However,
you will likely find it easier to use the JAWS navigation quick keys
or by
listing headings with JAWS key and f6.

The "Part 1" text that you are hearing must be text at the top of your
document indicating that you are starting with the first part of a
document.
You likely have Part 2 and additional parts through the document. One
part
might have a few chapters in it.

Take care.

Hi Susie q,

Don't confuse compatibility mode with protected view mode. Compatibility
mode just means that Word 2010 is letting you open a file from an earlier
version of Word. You can still edit the document and save it as usual.
JAWS just reads the title bar when opening the document and so you
hear that
it is being opened in compatibility mode. You don't have to save it
in the
new format. If all you are wanting to do is transfer the edited file to
your Stream then you might as well just leave it in the .DOC format.

On the other hand if there are features in Word 2010 that you want to use
that weren't available in the earlier versions of Word then you might
want
to use the newer format. The compatibility mode is not the same as the
protected mode and it is not a safety feature. If Word thinks a document
might be from an unsafe source then it will open in protected view,
which is
like a sandboxed area. Documents from programs using the Internet
zone are
examples of documents opened in protected view. You don't need to worry
about documents opened in compatibility mode so if all you are wanting
to do
is put them on the Stream you really don't need to use the newer format.

Take care.

Hey guys,

OK, i am having a hhge probem reading a manual with jfw 17 and word. It
keeps telling me that a file is in compatability mode. how do i get it
out of this. It's screwing everything up0






copying from Wells Fargo "results" web page.

Curtis Delzer
 

My wife uses jaws 18 and before she could just copy the results of the
bill pay page after the transactions to the clipboard and paste into
notepad or word, but now, it does not work for her.
Is there a setting in JFW which has changed it's default between 17 and
18, or, is the update to the Wells Fargo web site screwing it up for her?
When she copies to the clipboard, and attempts to paste, nothing gets
carried over into the paste action, and after a while, the web page
times out for security reasons.
Anyone have ideas as to what could be happening?
She is not a member of this list so any results anyone comes up with
I'll forward to her.
THANK YOU ALL!

Hi, when I open a document that I had created when I was using windows 2003

Hello SusieQ,

Word 2010 uses Compatibility Mode to maintain compatibility with earlier
versions of Word.
If you get a document from a person that was created in an earlier version
of Word or you open a document you created in an earlier version of Word the
word "compatibility" appears in the title bar. JAWS reads the title bar of
a document when you open it and so you hear the fact that the document was
created with an earlier version of Word but has been made compatible for
you. Documents created in Word 2010 are stored in an open XML format.
Documents created in Word 2003 or earlier were stored in a binary format so
in order to open them in Word 2010 Microsoft uses the compatibility mode.
If a file has a .DOC extension it will open in compatibility mode. Even
documents with a .DOCX extension created in Word 2007 could open in
compatibility mode because some of the features of Word 2010 were not
supported in Word 2007 such as some text effects and OpenType typographic
features).

Headings in Word are styles. A style consists of such things as the type of
font, font size, font color, character spacing, etc. A heading 1 style in
word 2010 uses a Cambria font size 14 and is a blue color. The heading 2 is
the same except the font is one point smaller and is a 13-point Cambria
font. The normal style in Word uses a size 11 Calibri font with a black
foreground color.

If each chapter in your file starts with text in a heading 2 style then you
can quickly move from chapter to chapter by browsing by heading. You can
list headings by using JAWS key with function key 6, using up or down arrow
to the heading to jump to and pressing enter key. You could also choose to
move between only heading 2 text by going into navigation quick keys using
JAWS key with Z and then pressing the number 2 to move to next heading or
shift with 2 to move to previous heading 2 in your document. When using the
navigation quick keys you are working in a read-only mode so you will need
to use JAWS key with Z to return to editing mode. You can also use function
key 6 in Word 2010 and move to the Search pane. Use the "browse by heading"
tab of the pane and use tab key to the list of headings to browse. However,
you will likely find it easier to use the JAWS navigation quick keys or by
listing headings with JAWS key and f6.

The "Part 1" text that you are hearing must be text at the top of your
document indicating that you are starting with the first part of a document.
You likely have Part 2 and additional parts through the document. One part
might have a few chapters in it.

Take care.

Hi Susie q,

Don't confuse compatibility mode with protected view mode. Compatibility
mode just means that Word 2010 is letting you open a file from an earlier
version of Word. You can still edit the document and save it as usual.
JAWS just reads the title bar when opening the document and so you hear that
it is being opened in compatibility mode. You don't have to save it in the
new format. If all you are wanting to do is transfer the edited file to
your Stream then you might as well just leave it in the .DOC format.

On the other hand if there are features in Word 2010 that you want to use
that weren't available in the earlier versions of Word then you might want
to use the newer format. The compatibility mode is not the same as the
protected mode and it is not a safety feature. If Word thinks a document
might be from an unsafe source then it will open in protected view, which is
like a sandboxed area. Documents from programs using the Internet zone are
examples of documents opened in protected view. You don't need to worry
about documents opened in compatibility mode so if all you are wanting to do
is put them on the Stream you really don't need to use the newer format.

Take care.

Re: Setting Tabs In A Word Document

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

First, I  understand your question.  At first glance, 2015 doesn‘t seem as intuitive as versions once were.  I’d begin by concentrating on the layout tab.  You need to know the kind of tab you’re setting.  It also won’t hurt to know spaces per inch in the font you’re using.  I think the default tab is five spaces, but these aren’t your father’s fonts.

Richard,

 

Here are the detailed instructions and key strokes for the YouTube scripts.

 

Using YouTube With JAWS and the Scripts

 

The scripts provide the following commands:

Ctrl+Shift+S Skip Ad. If a video ad is playing and a Skip button is present, this command will click it to make YouTube start playing the actual video requested.

Ctrl+Shift+Space Press the Play/Pause button if present. This works in both virtual cursor mode and forms mode.

Ctrl+Shift+T Say Time. This command will speak the current time position in the playing video as well as the video's length. If a video ad is playing, the times will relate to the ad rather than to the requested video. Note: The current time position is not always kept up to date by YouTube itself but will be updated if the video is paused and restarted or the play position is changed by the user.

Typing Ctrl+Shift+Space twice will force such an update.

Ctrl+Shift+N and Ctrl+Shift+P Move to the next or previous search results page or video. This works in search results, playlists, and wherever a Next and Previous button can be found.

Ctrl+Shift+V Move focus to the volume slider for the currently playing video. This also switches JAWS into forms mode and causes a number of native YouTube keystrokes to become usable.

The following YouTube-native keystrokes work as indicated when JAWS is in forms mode or if the keystrokes are passed through JAWS directly to YouTube, such as with the JAWS "pass next key through" command, Ins+3. As noted in the below list, some YouTube keystrokes require focus to be on the video's volume slider. This list applies at least to the HTML 5 video player and possibly also to the Flash player.

Space (slider focus required) or K Pause, resume, or play the current video. j or l Rewind or fast-forward the video by a few seconds. Digits 1 through 9 and 0 (slider focus required) Jump to a percentage through the video. 0 jumps to the beginning, 1 to 10% through, 2 to 20% through, etc., and 9 to 90% through. , (comma) or . (period) Slow down or speed up the video without changing its pitch. This amounts to simple compression or expansion of the audio and video. Slowing down far enough may stop playback. Up or Down arrows (slider focus required) Turn up or down the volume of the video by increments of 5%. Right and Left arrows, respectively, perform the same actions and also require focus to be on the volume slider. The volume usually defaults to 100%. M Mute or unmute the sound of the video. Beware that the occasional video defaults to muted on starting, though this seems rare. Home (slider focus required) Mute the audio. This is not a toggle like m. End (slider focus required) Unmute the audio and move the volume to 100%. This is not a toggle like m. F Toggle between full screen and normal video size. / (slash) Move focus to the YouTube search box. ' (apostrophe) Pop open and move focus to the Find bar for about four seconds.

Note. use the pass throu function in jaws or nvda before.

Ctrl+Shift+N and Ctrl+Shift+P Move to the next or previous search results page or video. This works in search results, playlists, and wherever a Next and Previous button can be found.

Ctrl+Shift+V Move focus to the volume slider for the currently playing video. This also switches JAWS into forms mode and causes a number of native YouTube keystrokes to become usable.

The following YouTube-native keystrokes work as indicated when JAWS is in forms mode or if the keystrokes are passed through JAWS directly to YouTube, such as with the JAWS "pass next key through" command, Ins+3. As noted in the below list, some YouTube keystrokes require focus to be on the video's volume slider. This list applies at least to the HTML 5 video player and possibly also to the Flash player.

Space (slider focus required) or K Pause, resume, or play the current video. j or l Rewind or fast-forward the video by a few seconds. Digits 1 through 9 and 0 (slider focus required) Jump to a percentage through the video. 0 jumps to the beginning, 1 to 10% through, 2 to 20% through, etc., and 9 to 90% through. , (comma) or . (period) Slow down or speed up the video without changing its pitch. This amounts to simple compression or expansion of the audio and video. Slowing down far enough may stop playback. Up or Down arrows (slider focus required) Turn up or down the volume of the video by increments of 5%. Right and Left arrows, respectively, perform the same actions and also require focus to be on the volume slider. The volume usually defaults to 100%. M Mute or unmute the sound of the video. Beware that the occasional video defaults to muted on starting, though this seems rare. Home (slider focus required) Mute the audio. This is not a toggle like m. End (slider focus required) Unmute the audio and move the volume to 100%. This is not a toggle like m. F Toggle between full screen and normal video size. / (slash) Move focus to the YouTube search box. ' (apostrophe) Pop open and move focus to the Find bar for about four seconds.

How do you use the "youtube shortcuts" mentioned below?  Is it like if you are playing a video you would press, for example, Alt+4" to go to 40% of the way into the video?  That is, are these "shortcuts" initiated with the "Alt" key?

"m" to mute, {k" to pause, and 1 to 9 to go to 10 to 90% of video time. 0 to go to begining.

Hi!

 

When watching a video on YouTube, there is a “slider” that represents the elapsed time for the current video playing.  How do you move it forward and back?  Really, it is sort of a fast forward or reverse control.

 

Thanks,

Richard

I think Android is definitely catching up and many consider it a very viable alternative. Check out some of the Podcasts from James Oats on Cool Blind Tech, he bought a Google Pixel phone and seems quite impressed with it. Of course that is also an expensive high-end phone so if I were to buy one I would have pretty high expectations which I would not have if I bought a $39 or even $99 Android tablet.

I’ve seen Android based tablets with 16 gigs go for as little as $39.00 on Amazon.

But I tried in vane to learn the Talk Back and the whole blind droid thing. I’m no dummy, but to heck with that Android fill in the blank. No offense to the Android crowd, but it was so easy, to pick up an IPhone and roll right out of the box!

Just my 1.27 cents worth from an ordinary average blind guy! LOL!

Buying a refurbished tablet in general, is a perfectly reasonable option

Whether you’ll be able  to maximize its use for this method...

Since this is a Jaws list, I can only assume that you’re looking for something Windows based? I’ve seen sales for  refurbished Surface tablets in the range  of $350 to $500, but at that price, a low end laptop or refurbished laptop may end up giving  you more bang  for your buck.

I know Dell and other companies used to make affordable Windows tablets, but I haven’t kept up to date on that market as I haven’t had the need for one.

With this sort of purchase, you’re going to want  to pay attention to specs. The last thing you’ll want is to be fighting with a sluggish machine while at  the same time trying  to take notes or whatever.

Hello, everyone.

I am a little green in this area. I was wondering what everyone thinks about purchasing refurbished tablets from somewhere like, say Amazon. I need a tablet for school just to take notes. Then, when I get home, I copy my note files over to my laptop and do the real work there. Thanks for your opinions.

If you buy and install the Leasey scripts the very top left key (to the left of the 1 on the number row) becomes the Leasey key. It is like the Jaws layered keystrokes, you press the Leasey key and then letters or combinations of Control, Shift+Control etc. and letters for various functions/features. For example, if I am composing an email and want to insert an emoticon from the list of Leasey emoticons I press the Leasey Key followed by Control+Shift+E, this brings up the list of emoticons, I can arrow through them or use first letter navigation like "s" to go to "Smile" or "g" to go to "grinning face" and then press enter to insert it. That same key stroke when I am reading an email (where I am not composing, replying or forwarding) will cpy the email address of the sender (the "From" address" to the clipboard.

Mike,

If you have Leasey and whenever you are in an edit area such as email body, Word, Notepad etc. just press the Leasey key followed by Control+Shift+E.
If you are reading an email the same key combination will copy the sender's email address (what is in the "From" field) to the clipboard.

yes I to would like to know the ancer to this as well. I know that in past versions of jaws it would read the smilies how ever I have not found a way in versions of jaws from 17 and 18 for jaws to read the smiles. now if you spell out the smiles instedof using the simbles it reads them just fine. for instince if I was just to say smile jaws would read it but if it is just a simble jaws wont read it. at least it wont read it like a smile itwill read it the way the simble is. from Mich.

Re: Refurbished Tablets

Jennifer Jackson <jennsjackson@...>
 

I have had success with refurbished electronics and think it is a very cost effective option. Best Buy also has a refurbished section, and you might also consider asking around amongst friends and family for under used equipment you can have or borrow.

Do you have a mobile plan of some kind? I just recently started using an ipad mini when one came for free with my new phone plan. I had no idea how useful it can be. Something like this might be a low cost option for you.

If you have a smart phone, you might consider using it to take notes on. I have done this before and then sent the notes to my laptop to work from. You can email and text to your email account that you check with your phone, or use one of the cloud sharing options like drop box.

I hope you find a method that works well for you.


Jennifer
