Hi Mike,

go to your desktop, find the version of jaws that you wish to make the short
cut for.
Press alt enter to open the properties box, tab until you get to shortcut
key.
Press the key combination that you wish to use to launch Jaws. Next press
alt a to apply, and enter to close the box.
This should work without a hitch.
Take care.

You may need to take your laptop to a computer shop to see if maybe it’s infected or something like that.  Oh sure, Jaws could have broken your windows installation somehow but I just don’t see how it could have in the way your describing.  Obviously something is wrong so that is why I’d recommend having a pro look at it.

My pictures overlap in Power point. any way out?

Hello,
When inserting picture in Powerpoint, my pictures overlap and cover
the entire slide. How can I do it?
Note, how can I insert picture in my first center title and sub title
slide such that the picture will not be the background . rather it
will just show at the center or at the right top corner.
How can I do same if I choose any other template? or there is a
specific template for this?

I use powerpoint 2007 and jaws 17.

Thank you.

Re: How to save sheet separately in excel.

Hello Maria,

Thank you. it work.

I appreciate.

On 25/02/2017, Maria Kristic <maria.kristic@gmail.com> wrote:
The better method is to use Excel's Move Sheet facility but create a copy
instead of move. That is, open both of the workbooks simultaneously in
Excel, the original one where the sheets are located and the new one to
which you want to copy the sheets. In original, navigate to the sheet in
question. From the Home tab of the ribbon, in the Cells group, select Format
Move Sheet (the keyboard shortcut should be ALT+H, O, M). You land on a
control where you decide the position of the moved or copied sheet, but
SHIFT+TAB, and you will land in a Workbook list which contains all open
workbooks. Select the new workbook from the list, TAB back to the Before
Sheet box and select the option you want from it (one possible option is
"Move to end"), then TAB again until you reach the "Create a copy" check
box, and check that to copy rather than move the sheet. Activate the OK
button. Now, if you navigate to the new workbook, you should see your sheet
from original copied there; there may also be an extra blank sheet that you
don't want, so you can delete that (Home ribbon, Cells group, Delete >
Delete Sheet). You can now close that new workbook, open another new one,
and repeat the process to copy the next sheet, and so on.

Hope it helps!

Re: Refurbished Tablets

What about a Windows 10 computer? There's actually a braille Windows 10 computer that runs Jaws, it's not out yet, but I'm guessing, it's only $3,000, which isn't too bad, better than the Touch. The specs are much better too.

I feel that the braille note touch is way overprised for what it truly does.

I prefer to use a real tablet, either android or iPad, in this case an iPad,
and get one of those great keyboard cases like the clamcase pro cases, and
if you need braille get a braille display like the baum vario ultra 20, etc
etc.

The 5500$$$ price tag on the note takers from humanware and hims, and anyone

Re: Problems Faced While Using Word 2016

Maria Kristic
 

Hi Rahul,

Thanks for the clarification--now I see why our results are different! Even though JAWS 16 came out before Office 2016, I would not have imagined that it would create all of these issues because I didn't think 2016 was so very vastly altered from 2013, but I suppose that there are more under-the-hood changes in Office 2016 than I thought, or something. Anyway, I am really grasping at straws, so to speak, since all I have here is this one computer with Windows 10, Office 2016, and I removed all JAWS versions from it except 18, but here are some thoughts I had on what else you could try or different ways of accomplishing the tasks:

1. Can you perhaps use INSERT+PAGE DOWN to read the status line of the window? On my setup, the status line contains number of pages and words, so this could perhaps be another way to get a word count? If your status bar doesn't show word count, you can press F6 a couple of times from the document until you reach the "status bar toolbar", then hit the APPLICATIONS key to access the Context Menu, and press ENTER on the Word Count option to check it if it is not already checked.
2. I have two suggestions for you to try to move by paragraph. Can you perhaps use the JAWS Laptop Layout keystrokes CAPSLOCK+CTRL+U, CAPSLOCK+CTRL+I, and CAPSLOCK+CTRL+O to reliably read/move between previous/current/next paragraph, respectively? Or, can you enable Navigation Quick Keys in Word with INSERT+Z, then use P and SHIFT+P to move between paragraphs, and exit Navigation Quick Key mode with INSERT+Z when you have reached somewhere you wish to type?
3. Can you perhaps...coax...Say All to move backward or forward with the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys while the Say All is in progress? You can set which element the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys rewind/fast forward by with the "Say All Reads" setting in Quick Settings or Settings Center?
4. I wonder if you can still select all the text in the Comment edit field, so that you could perhaps write your new comment in another Word document, copy it to the clipboard, delete what was already in the Comment edit field, paste the new version, and ESC out? Even though JAWS says "blank" in the Comment pane, I wonder if CTRL+HOME would take you to the top, CTRL+SHIFT+END to select what is there, CTRL+C to copy, and paste in to a new, blank Word file? If the content pastes, you can edit it and copy the whole, edited comment to the clipboard; if it doesn't paste, type the new comment completely and copy that. Then, back to the Comment pane in the original file, move to top again and select to end, DELETE to get rid of what was there, CTRL+V to paste what you copied from the other file, and then ESC to save your changes. You could see if the edited version is there by using the JAWS Comments list or the JAWS Announce Comment feature. It would be a bit tedious to keep moving between two files, but if it worked...

Or perhaps, the suggestion from another list member to try working in Draft view when trying to accomplish these tasks would improve your results?

Hope some of this is useful! Will be interested to know if any of it works out for you...Good luck!!

Regards,
Maria

Dear Maria,

Thank you so much for your detailed and informative response.
Actually, I am not using a genuine version of Office 2016 since the same is exorbitantly priced in India. So I cannot upgrade to the latest version.
While I continue to face issues 1 to 3, I have tried using your strategy to deal with issue 4.
However, after I press alt-r-n on the comment concerned, JAWS says 'comment pane' followed by 'blank'. It doesn't allow me to engage with the text in that comment. I am not sure what can be done about this.

I have JAWS 16 and Windows 8. I cannot install the latest version of JAWS since my dongle is only for JAWS 16.
Any ideas as to what I could do?

Best,
Rahul

With the latest JAWS 18 build (build 18.0.2530), latest updates to
Office 365, and Windows 10 installed, I was unable to reproduce issues
1-3, and I believe you are experiencing issue 4 because of the changes
made in Word
2016 as to how comments are displayed--see notes below. Since you said
you just installed Office 2016, I wonder if the installers are always
updated to reflect the latest updates, so I would suggest checking for
updates in Windows, installing any updates available for Office, and
then trying again.

I tested your issues on a large Word file I created by copying/pasting
several files to create a 2,880-page document. Here's what happened,
using the desktop version of Word 2016:

1. It did take my seven-year-old computer about 20 seconds, but when I
accessed the Word Count option from the Review tab of the ribbon, the
dialog did eventually come up, and I was able to access it (e.g.,
2,880 pages,
1,368,661 words, etc.)
2. I went to page 585 and used CTRL+DOWN ARROW to move continuously
through paragraphs until I got to page 591, and then used CTRL+UP
ARROW to move in reverse, and the cursor moved by paragraphs as expected.
3. I performed a Say All at page 585 and let it go to page 594...The
pages read straight through as expected.
4. As this also does not work with another screen reader I tried, I
believe, as I said above, that this is due to Word 2016 changes.
Comments are now displayed in a separate Comments pane which appears
when necessary. That is, when I select the option to create a new
comment from the Review tab for example, the pane appears with an edit
area in focus, I write and navigate the comment as I would in a
typical edit field, and I press ESC when done to save the comment and
return to the document. In order to make the pane visible again and
thus be able to edit/delete comments, the most efficient way I have
found is to use JAWS' Comments List feature together with Review
ribbon Comments group shortcuts. I use the JAWS feature
(CTRL+SHIFT+APOSTROPHE) or cursor movement to navigate to where the
comment I want to manipulate is located. Then, I press ALT+R, N to
activate the Next Comment button on the Review tab, which causes the
Comments pane to appear with the comment I want to manipulate in
focus. I can change what is written in the edit field. ALT+R, V
activates the Previous Comment button of the Review tab and presents
the previous comment in an edit field in the Comments pane; ALT+R, N
activates the Next one; ALT+R, D activates the Delete split button
from which I can choose to delete the comment in focus or all comments
in the document; ESC closes the pane and returns me to the document.

Hope it helps!

Regards,
Maria

Hi All,

I recently installed office 2016 and have been facing the following
challenges while using word:
1. JAWS and Word get hanged when I open the word count in the
review tab; 2. JAWS often doesn't read anything at all when you
press
control+down arrow in large documents beyond a particular point; 3.
When you press the say all command, JAWS reads the same chunk of
text
over and over again as opposed to moving forward; and 4.
Right-clicking a comment does not give you access to options that can
help you edit/delete a comment. JAWS pretends that the comment doesn't
exist and displays the same context menu that it would without the comment being there.
This is significantly hampering my productivity; any pointers would
be
much appreciated.

Best,
Rahul

In the deep past, a service called "Bobby" could be accessed to get an idea if a particular web site were designed in a manner conplying with web access guidelines. That's no longer in place. I have agreed to offer help to a webmaster in making his site easily accessible and I have made a suggestion or two. I'd really like to tell him an authoritative source of proper site design for accessibility. I'd very much appreciate suggestions.

Re: How to save sheet separately in excel.

Maria Kristic
 

The better method is to use Excel's Move Sheet facility but create a copy instead of move. That is, open both of the workbooks simultaneously in Excel, the original one where the sheets are located and the new one to which you want to copy the sheets. In original, navigate to the sheet in question. From the Home tab of the ribbon, in the Cells group, select Format > Move Sheet (the keyboard shortcut should be ALT+H, O, M). You land on a control where you decide the position of the moved or copied sheet, but SHIFT+TAB, and you will land in a Workbook list which contains all open workbooks. Select the new workbook from the list, TAB back to the Before Sheet box and select the option you want from it (one possible option is "Move to end"), then TAB again until you reach the "Create a copy" check box, and check that to copy rather than move the sheet. Activate the OK button. Now, if you navigate to the new workbook, you should see your sheet from original copied there; there may also be an extra blank sheet that you don't want, so you can delete that (Home ribbon, Cells group, Delete > Delete Sheet). You can now close that new workbook, open another new one, and repeat the process to copy the next sheet, and so on.

Hope it helps!

Regards,
Maria

The update should not cause you any issues.

It was very deeply tested before it has been released to the
public.

So, I have been involved in two computers updating to the
latest JAWS update with no problems. Before I continue I
just want to get a feel for if any other people are
experiencing problems such as the one described on the list.
I don't want to hit anymore update buttons if there is a
high likelihood that I may put some of my computers on the
frits. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Hi all,

 

For those of you who come to CSUN 2017, I invite you to the VFO Group’s booths, to take a look both at the already shipping ElBraille 14G2 which will start it’s way to the US soon, and at a prototype of the ElBraile 40, which really looks like the final product.

 

Also , I would like to thank the staff of Blind Bargains, for featuring me on their eposoede92 of their podcast. Take a listen to it if you want to know more info about these devices.

Finally, the latest fsCast released by Freedom Scientific, contains a interview about the ElBraille with Ron Miller, Freedom Scientific’s blindness hardware product manager.

Feel free to  Take a listen to that as well.

 

Best,

 

Adi.
