Re: Managing paperwork with O penbook

Dacia Cole
 

I love using open book with my pearl camera. I do use it some for reading mail, as well as my KNFBREADER reader app. I hadn't thought about it, but you could save the images of the bills on your computer. The only reason you may want to still consider keeping some bills or other paperwork, is for tax purposes. But you should be able to save most things on your computer.

Good Morning,
The easy version of this question is can Openbook and the Pearl camera be used to make electronic copies of documents for record keeping?

Is anyone else here using Openbook to manage your mail and paperwork? I just started using Openbook again after many years and am trying to get re-familiar with it.

I just used it for a bill that came in the mail and it occured to me that rather than saving this piece of paper, I should be able to save an image of it and then put both files in a folder in Openbook or on my hard drive. Any tips or suggestions for this will be appreciated.

Re: How do I create "heading levels" in MS Word for quick navigation?

Hi Richard,

Yes, it is a normal behavior on word. Other thing that you can try is pressing jaws key + F6. Like this pressing home key you will move up to the beginning of the heading lists. Really there are several ways to navigate on headings. For example if you have quick navigation on, you will be able to navigate if you want, on headings level 2 only, just pressing the number 2 on the number row. Or just pressing 3 to navigate only on the headings level 3, and so on.

So you have these ways.

·         Pressing jaws key + F6, you will create a list of headings

·         Pressing jaws key + z, you enable quick navigation. Now you will be able to press H and navigate on headings.

·         If you have quick navigation enabled, you will be able to navigate on the heading level that you want, pressing on the number row, the number of that headings, for example number 2 for headings level 2 only, or number 3 for headings level 3 only.

Hi Pablo!

 

Thank you *so* much for your below!  This totally works, and it is so easy to do!  YAY!  I have struggled with this seemingly simple and yet really useful task for a long time without any success. 

 

I have an additional question, though.  It seems like, after activating quick navigation with JAWSKey+z, pressing “h” only works one way, from the top of the document downward.  That is, unlike when on a webpage it does not seem to wrap to the top of the document after reaching whatever heading level was the last one at the end of the document.  Put another way, repeatedly pressing “h” does not cycle through every heading in the document.  Is this behavior a normal, MS Word JAWS thing?

 

And, yes, you are right in correcting me: it is pressing “h” not JAWSKey+h on a webpage that cycles you through the headings. 

 

Thanks!

Richard

Hi Richard,

When you are on a web page you don’t press jaws key + H. Jaws key + H is the hot keys for jaws. To do what you need on a web site you press just H.

Now, to insert headings in a word document you are able to use the following keystrokes.

On a main title or heading level 1, keystroke(control+alt+1 on the number row), heading level 2, keystroke(control + alt +2 on the number row), and heading level 3, keystroke(control + alt + 3 on the number row).

Now to navigate on the word document we need to enable quick navigation pressing jaws key + Z. Like this we will not be able to edit the document, but we will be able to press H and navigate heading by heading. Also you will be able to create a list of headings pressing jaws key + F6.

Hi!

 

I have an MS Word 2007 document that has many section captions (or you could call them sub titles).  I would like to give them “heading levels” so that I can use quick key navigation in the document to rapidly move among these sections, like you can do on a webpage by pressing JAWSKey+h.  How do you do this?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Need Accessible Website Hosting / Creation Referral

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

I need to create and publish a simple webpage.  My skills for this are limited.  Is there some site that I can use to host and create a website that is accessible?  If the site also had some accessible resources about how to go about doing all this, like exactly how do you write the webpage itself ala HTML, that would be a bonus!

 

Note that this is not so much about things appertaining to domain names.  I know about them, and am OK about getting them.  That said, if the same one site that was accessible, could host my webpage and also had some webpage creation resources also happened to have domain establishment and purchasing capabilities that would be super!

 

Thanks,

Yes, if you insert a heading level 3, then press alt + shift + right arrow,
it will modify the heading from 3 to heading 4. If you repeat the step It
will increase to heading level 5 and so on. If you press alt +shift + left
arrow, it will decrease the heading level.

Type the heading; select it; press alt+1 for heading 1, alt+2 for heading 2,
etc.

Alternatively press alt+1 for heading 1, type the heading, then
alt+ctrl+n to return text to normal. If you have NVDA installed, n
alt+ctrl+invokes that, so you would have to use the JAWS passthrough
key, insert+3, before the alt+ctrl+n. That's why I would recommend the
first method.

Good luck!

FYI, at least for me in Word 2007, the below instructions are missing the
"Control" key. That is, the correct keystroke would be, for example,
Control+Alt+1 to tag a caption as heading level 1.

Type the heading; select it; press alt+1 for heading 1, alt+2 for heading 2,
etc.

Alternatively press alt+1 for heading 1, type the heading, then
alt+ctrl+n to return text to normal. If you have NVDA installed, n
alt+ctrl+invokes that, so you would have to use the JAWS
passthrough key, insert+3, before the alt+ctrl+n. That's why I would
recommend the first method.

Good luck!

Re: trouble with chrome and Facebook

Hi there. For whatever reason, it’s still the mobile site of Facebook. Chrome just makes it read totally different than FF. I’m not sure why that is the case.

Good evening list; having some trouble with Google chrome and mobile Facebook.  When I write m.Facebook.com in the address bar, I think I am taken to the regular Facebook instead the mobile side which I prefer more.  I go there from firefox and internet explorer.  If someone knows how to get to the mobile Facebook on chrome, I would like to hear about it.  Running jaws 18 and windows ten.

Hello Richard,
You can also press alt H, L, while the desired text is selected, then arrow
around to the selected heading level, and press enter.
Cheers Kevin.

I use Control-Alt-2 (1, 2, or 3)
It does not seem to work with numbers higher than 3.

Ann, is there a way to select the level that's needed from a list? I
remember pressing the alt+ a number only works up to level 3. if a level
4 is needed, pressing alt+4 doesn't do anything, unless it does work in word
2007, but not in 2010.

Re: How do I create "heading levels" in MS Word for quick navigation?

Hi Pablo!

 

Thank you *so* much for your below!  This totally works, and it is so easy to do!  YAY!  I have struggled with this seemingly simple and yet really useful task for a long time without any success. 

 

I have an additional question, though.  It seems like, after activating quick navigation with JAWSKey+z, pressing “h” only works one way, from the top of the document downward.  That is, unlike when on a webpage it does not seem to wrap to the top of the document after reaching whatever heading level was the last one at the end of the document.  Put another way, repeatedly pressing “h” does not cycle through every heading in the document.  Is this behavior a normal, MS Word JAWS thing?

 

And, yes, you are right in correcting me: it is pressing “h” not JAWSKey+h on a webpage that cycles you through the headings. 

 

Thanks!

Richard

Hi Richard,

When you are on a web page you don’t press jaws key + H. Jaws key + H is the hot keys for jaws. To do what you need on a web site you press just H.

Now, to insert headings in a word document you are able to use the following keystrokes.

On a main title or heading level 1, keystroke(control+alt+1 on the number row), heading level 2, keystroke(control + alt +2 on the number row), and heading level 3, keystroke(control + alt + 3 on the number row).

Now to navigate on the word document we need to enable quick navigation pressing jaws key + Z. Like this we will not be able to edit the document, but we will be able to press H and navigate heading by heading. Also you will be able to create a list of headings pressing jaws key + F6.

Hi!

 

I have an MS Word 2007 document that has many section captions (or you could call them sub titles).  I would like to give them “heading levels” so that I can use quick key navigation in the document to rapidly move among these sections, like you can do on a webpage by pressing JAWSKey+h.  How do you do this?

 

Thanks,

Richard
