Drop Down Lists in Excel 2013

Nicole Massey <nyyki@...>
 

Hey, folks, I thought I saved this earlier, but how do you access drop down
lists in Excel? It's a protected sheet, so F2 won't do it. Anyone remember
how to do this?

Yes, I used the Windows-Insert-F4 command back a few months
ago when I was having JAWS crashes. I am not having them
right now, thank the Lord.

Bye for now,

Hello, everyone.



It seems that I have narrowed the Jaws crashing issue on my
current Windows 7 computer down to the following sequence of
events.



Jaws seems to crash when I exit Microsoft Word while Outlook
is also open. Once this happens, Jaws will stop speaking,
and I can't re-activate Jaws either via the usual Alt
Control J shortcut, or the Windows R command.



The only way I can re-start Jaws is to do a hard shut-down

Thank you very much. I have gotten that far with opening a message. So, as
of now can one still no longer arrow down in the list view to see the
message sender information? I read something about thread view, does this
change this break? How would I set the list view to thread view? Also, there
are a couple different sets of scripts out there for TB, but one is payed
and I typically like to teach students how to maneuver around with the
native JAWS keystrokes when available.

Nate, when I launch TB, I wait until I hear the sound for incoming messages
that have downloaded into the inbox (about 10 to 30 seconds), then I press
tab twice which lands me on the treelist of folders, of which the inbox is
usually first, then I press tab to review the new email that came, and
pressing the enter key opens it so I can read it with JAWS or NVDA, and once
I'm done, I press the escape key to close it. (I have TB set to open a new
email in a separate window). I am then returned to the list of messages,
back to the one I just red.

to my knowledge, there isn't any third party scripts for JAWS that enhance
the use of TB, but it would be nice if someone would. however, a basic set
has been included with JAWS already. the problem is that there are some
instances where scripting would be helpful, like when using the spell
checker, if a word is detected, the misspelled word is not automatically
red, the JAWS cursor has to be used to find out what it is. additionally, it
would be useful if there was a JAWS keystroke to read the misspelled word in
context so you can decide what the word should be. the keyboard shortcuts
like alt i to ignore, alt r to replace, alt s to send, etc still work, and
you can still press the tab key to and press the space bar on the choice of
action you want to perform.

but since TB now updated to version 52, using the JAWS cursor is no longer
possible. and I suspect there are other instances that have been curtailed
that I don't use or know about.

there are most likely other instances where scripting would be useful to
effectively deal with using TB that I didn't mention or know about.

How to use Windows Media Player to read or access music in a folder on an external hard drive

Kramlinger, Keith G., M.D.
 

Hi,

 

I stumbled across an old folder with lots of ripped cDs in mp3 format.

 

I’d like to check out this folder to see if the sometimes quirkily named files changed the mp3 tags or just were in a database shell pointing to the actual music files. And whether these mp3 files are actually still playable.

 

I have Windows Media Player on my PC and would like to use that as the tool by which I check out this recently rediscovered music folder. I have only limited familiarity with WMP, but have read what JAWS has to say about hot keys by using Insert+F1.

 

Can someone please tell me how to get the mp3 files in the folder to be seen by WMP, and if they should be playable, once selected, using WMP?

 

Thanks in advance, Keith

the reason I heard why the audio ducking was removed from the latest

JAWS has stopped and sent itself quite a few Error Reports, which it

did prior to these recent upgrades.

And, why, oh, why did JAWS dis-continue the only real good thing
they've done for many an upgrade and take away the sound ducking

Subject: Continued Jaws Crashing

 

Hello, everyone.

 

It seems that I have narrowed the Jaws crashing issue on my current Windows 7 computer down to the following sequence of events.

 

Jaws seems to crash when I exit Microsoft Word while Outlook is also open.  Once this happens, Jaws will stop speaking, and I can’t re-activate Jaws either via the usual Alt Control J shortcut, or the Windows R command.

 

The only way I can re-start Jaws is to do a hard shut-down of the computer.

 

My sighted wife says Jaws looks like it is still up on the screen, but she can’t do anything to re-activate it either, short of manually shutting down the computer.

 

Does anyone have a sequence of steps to get out of this issue?

 

Does anyone know if FS is aware of the problem??

 

I did not have this problem prior to  updateing to Jaws 18.

 

To clarify, I’m using Office 365 here, with Word 2016 and Outlook 2016.

You might want to download an older version of TB to keep the list view working as before, till VFO decides to fix the problem now occurring.

I am using an older version myself, not v52.

I have a client that I am about to teach JAWS to and he is a long time Thunderbird user. I myself am not. I am about to listen to the Freedom Scientific seminar on JAWS with Thunderbird, but beyond that, a question that I have is, will it be best or most common to try and download scripts for Thunderbird? Also, right now when I am in the list view for the emails, it does not read the email information, I have to tab once to find the sender information and then shift tab back to the list view and arrow down to the next message and do the same to find out sender information. Any tips would be great.
