Hi. There are also plenty of shortcut keys to use for WordPress and some of them are not dissimilar to MS word, the headings for example. Control+1 - 6 if my memory serves me correctly though it could be control+shift. I can send a link here to a list of them if anyone is interested.


Cheers.

WordPress is pretty accessible out of the box. One thing I would recommend
is to turn off the visual editor because that will mess with screen readers.
David I would bet that that was one of the things that was messing with
jaws. You need to uncheck the box that says visual editor.
Also some themes can mess with screen readers as well.
To answer the other persons question, no you don't need to know HTML or any
other type of coding as word press covers the basics but if you want to get
more in depth it wouldn't hurt to know son. By in-depth I mean making your
website look nicer. Like say you wanted to make a list with headings at the
top and then a list of items below that. You might need to know some HTML in
order to do that.
I learned the word press on the fly back into thousand nine, but I'm sure if
you Google there will be some beginner tutorials out there somewhere. You
might also check on bard if you have that because I've seen they posted some
books on WordPress from time to time. They should at least have one or two
that can help a blind individual with who is just beginning withWordPress.
Some of the books might be slightly out of date, but they should have some
useful information.

Steve.  i have also built many websites using WordPress and literally done two of them over the last couple of weeks.  Just out of interest, what theme do you recommend and how do you insert links using the buttons on the toolbar?  I must admit after returning to creating review sites after a few years break, I've found WordPress to be better than ever now.

Re: 2016 and advanced find

As it turns out, it appears this find issue is less of a problem with jaws
16. On the surface that doesn't make clear sense to me. It may make sense to
someone else with some hhigher technical knowledge than yours truly.
When I do the advanced find with jaws sixteen running, the find does not

Hi, Richard.

I'm still playing with f3 and will try control-e.
So here's an example.
I'd press control shift-f and the initial choice is a edit combo wher you
can type in a string you might find in the subject.
So I would type in sticky keys
Press enter and after a few secondsthe program would stop searching.
At that point I would press f6 to get quickly to the results.
I would then select all the messages either delete or perhaps move them

Re: wireless headsets and keyboards are at risk too.

While it is harder to break a good password or encryption code, it can be done if someone thinks the reward is worth the effort.

 

Most passwords are fairly easy to break.  Many people that do use good passwords and keys will have a copy somewhere in a billfold or on one of their computers or phones for convenience.

 

It is just a matter of how much effort and expense someone is willing to put forth to get something they think is worth more.

 

Any effort expended on one break-in can be cheaply used for thousands of others.

 

Are you aware that people are spending $100 and more to have their medical and other information made available to anyone willing to pay for it?  Think DNA kits.

Re: antivirus program suites

 

A second for Mike B's request!!

Prior to Windows 8, Microsoft Security Essentials was the Microsoft built-in antivirus and Windows Defender was the built-in antimalware.

With the advent of Windows 8 and continuing afterward these two functions were combined into Windows Defender (and Microsoft Security Essentials disappeared).

When it comes to accessible antivirus and/or antimalware, and depending on the era of Windows, you're not going to beat Microsoft Security Essentials coupled with Windows Defender for Windows 7 and earlier or just "the new" Windows Defender for Windows 8 and later.   You will get all kinds of contentious argument that these "aren't adequate" but I have yet to see them be inadequate for anyone who exercises even the least bit of conscientiousness when interacting with the web.

There are no doubt better products depending on what your particular definition of "better" happens to be.  I have yet to hear of any of these having the ease of accessibility of the built-in Microsoft solutions.

The technology exists to read the chip on a credit card in your pocket. It is easy to tap into WIFI on someone else's internet. The only thing stopping someone from cruising around looking for Bluetooth signals to tap into is the ease with which they can get into your computer without getting close to you. If people ever start locking down their internet, and trash cans, better the crooks will find another way to stay in business.

Someheadsets do have longer range, but nowadays usually are digital and once again it would not be very straight forward to intercept this and listen, but even if one could this would not give anybody access to your Facebook account or other accounts which would only be possible if they can somehow record what you type on your keyboard.

Virtually all wireless headsets and keyboards use either Bluetooth or other very short range wireless protocols.  I would suggest that anyone who's worried about what the original poster is actually take the time to educate themselves about Bluetooth or the short-range wireless used by these devices.

The vulnerability claimed simply does not exist in practice and unless someone were able to get very close, as in you should be able to see them, intercepting the communications between these devices and the computer is not a practical possibility.

And, yes, I know this whole topic is off topic for the group but it's long overdue for an injection of fact.

No, it's not tied to you but it maybe of limited value because your settings may include settings for programs which your friend doesn't have, it may include settings for websites he or she doesn't go to and it could contain settings specific to your system which may not apply such as dictionary definitions, custom highlight assignments and so on. But you can try it, probably it won't hurt, of course your friend would also have to like your selections for the voices including pitch, speed and all that. If you want to do it and you are both using Jaws 18 the best way to do this would be for you to go to the Jaws menu > Utilities > Import/Export and choose Export. You then send this file to your friend and they would go to the same place and choose "Import", browse to where they saved the file and import it.

If I wanted to help another person set up their copy of Jaws can I simply give them a copy of my Jaws settings backup file or is it tied to my copy with such things as my serial number etc?

Re: wireless headsets and keyboards are at risk too.

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

I agree partly, I have often received phone calls or had messages pop up on some websites where I was asked to call a certain number because a virus was on my computer. The phone calls usually claim to be from Microsoft and that my computer has a virus and I need to let them connect so they can fix it. Most of us hopefully are tech savvy enough not to do this, but many people especially older people who have very little technical knowledge are vulnerable and in that case it is not true that nobody wants to hack you or me.
My Uncle in Germany who is a very intelligent person and who was a top level management person at Daimler is now in his mid 80's, he fell for one of these calls and next thing he knew the guy on the phone told him that he had locked down his computer and in order for him to return it to my Uncle my Uncle had to wire him 300 Euros. These ransomware attacks are extremely worrisome and while they do target universities, hospitals and what have you, many of them do also target just you and me and the average Joe. Many people would pay a few hundred Dollars in order to get access to their computer again, if the hackers keep the demands reasonable enough it's something most people will pay. Most hackers also will actually return control and remove whatever they installed because they know that if the word gets around that this is not so nobody will pay them. If your child is kidnapped and you are requested to pay a ransom you can afford and know with certainty that your child will be returned unharmed what do you do? You pay it of course. If you are almost 100% certain that your child will be killed anyways you might want to think twice and try other options like getting the police involved or whatever.
I don't think we need to be paranoid about this, but just to say nobody would possibly target you is also not a good position to take. And don't assume you are smarter than the hackers, these ransomware attacks can be extremely sophisticated and very smart people have and are falling for them, you are not immune.

Sieghard

you might have root kit malware.

netbat66
 

they could still have some un detectable malware. like a root kit that will log all your keystrokes, like passwords to anything you log on to to the hacker without your knowlege.
some root kits are not detected by anti virus programs because they can hide themselves in the video card where most antivirus programs do not scan.
the only way to be sure they are gone is to reformat the drive and reinstall windows.

Yes, that is hoe it used to work for me on Excel 2007 at home and work.  At home I have Excel 2016 and here at work I have Excel 2013.  Auto fill does not work on either version of Excel now.

 

Here at work on Excel 2013 I have a column with the words “office” or “lunch” in it.  Even though lunch repeats 10 times and office repeats 20 times, it doesn’t auto fill.  I Googled the steps to enxure that auto fill is turned on, but no dope?   I must be overlooking something, but I cannot find it.  Crap!  Auto fill is on by default as I remember it.

 

Thanks for trying.

For me autofill works regardlss of how many words there are. The only time where I have to type more before it kicks in is if two separate phrases start the same way. Here are some examples:

 

If I type “Scotia Bank Visa” once and then start typing it again I most likely only have to type “Sc” before the autofill kicks in.

If I now want to type “Scotia Bank Line of Credit”, I will get the autofill for “Scotia Bank Visa” while I type “Scotia Bank”, only after I press the space bar and type the “L” for the word “Line” will the autofill end and I can finish typing “Line of Credit”.

Now having typed both phrases, autofill will not kick in when I type “Scotia Bank”, it will only kick in and fill the rest of the words if I type “V” or “L” after Scotia Bank and the spacebar. In the case of “Scotia Bank Visa” it will only complete the “isa” of “Visa”, in the case of “Line of Credit” it will autofill “ine of credit” after I type the “L”.

I hope this makes sense.

Hi,

 

Can’t you just press Control + S in a protected document to unprotect it? You will be prompted to allow saving or something like that. Should work in Excel too, I think.

 

If you want to fill cells with the same info, in your example, type “Lunch” in the first cell. Then, press Control + G to open the “Go to Cell” dialogue box and type in the last cell you want. Press Shift + enter and that range will be selected. If the cells you wish to fill with “lunch” are below the cell you are in, press Control + D to fill down. If the cells are to the right, press Control + R to fill right.

I think I did also have this issue at one point, but only if I pressed enter on the attachment. I unfortunately can’t remember what I did or if I did anything. On my current laptop Excel attachments do open in Excel if I press enter on them. You might want to try Microsoft Accessibility since this is something where I think they could probably help you.

You can also try Jaws Key+A when you are in an open message, it usually put focus on the attachments list.

You can then use right arrow or left arrow to move around, Jaws says “Press Alt+Down arrow for more options” and either that or Shift+F10 will open the menu where you have things like “Open”, “Save As”, “Save All Attachments”, “Remove Attachment” etc.

if useing a wireless headset or keyboard they can access your computer
this way too by logging everything you say on the headset or what you
are typeing on the keyboard.
these two devices need to be a secured wireless keyboard and/or
headset to block them.

Re: Opening Outlook attachments

Bob Hicks
 

Yes, that is hoe it used to work for me on Excel 2007 at home and work.  At home I have Excel 2016 and here at work I have Excel 2013.  Auto fill does not work on either version of Excel now.

 

Here at work on Excel 2013 I have a column with the words “office” or “lunch” in it.  Even though lunch repeats 10 times and office repeats 20 times, it doesn’t auto fill.  I Googled the steps to enxure that auto fill is turned on, but no dope?   I must be overlooking something, but I cannot find it.  Crap!  Auto fill is on by default as I remember it.

 

Thanks for trying.

 

Have a great day!

For me autofill works regardlss of how many words there are. The only time where I have to type more before it kicks in is if two separate phrases start the same way. Here are some examples:

 

If I type “Scotia Bank Visa” once and then start typing it again I most likely only have to type “Sc” before the autofill kicks in.

If I now want to type “Scotia Bank Line of Credit”, I will get the autofill for “Scotia Bank Visa” while I type “Scotia Bank”, only after I press the space bar and type the “L” for the word “Line” will the autofill end and I can finish typing “Line of Credit”.

Now having typed both phrases, autofill will not kick in when I type “Scotia Bank”, it will only kick in and fill the rest of the words if I type “V” or “L” after Scotia Bank and the spacebar. In the case of “Scotia Bank Visa” it will only complete the “isa” of “Visa”, in the case of “Line of Credit” it will autofill “ine of credit” after I type the “L”.

I hope this makes sense.

Tnx.  What about having 2 or 3 different words in the same column?  I am trying for auto fill whenever I duplicate the same word in the same column.

Hi,

 

Can’t you just press Control + S in a protected document to unprotect it? You will be prompted to allow saving or something like that. Should work in Excel too, I think.

 

If you want to fill cells with the same info, in your example, type “Lunch” in the first cell. Then, press Control + G to open the “Go to Cell” dialogue box and type in the last cell you want. Press Shift + enter and that range will be selected. If the cells you wish to fill with “lunch” are below the cell you are in, press Control + D to fill down. If the cells are to the right, press Control + R to fill right.

Thanks Sieghard, I’ll try that.  

 

I know how            to get Word 2016 documents out of protectedview, but how do you get Excel 2016 documents out of protected view?  The same set of key strokes doesn’t work for Excel.

 

Also, how do you get Excel 2016 to auto fill?  I checked the settings and they all seem to be in the correct position.  I do my time sheet in Excel and there are many words duplicated and it is a pain typing “lunch” 10 times.

 

Have a great day!

If you use Shift+F10 and select “Open” do Excel attachments still not open in Excel?

I think I did also have this issue at one point, but only if I pressed enter on the attachment. I unfortunately can’t remember what I did or if I did anything. On my current laptop Excel attachments do open in Excel if I press enter on them. You might want to try Microsoft Accessibility since this is something where I think they could probably help you.

You can also try Jaws Key+A when you are in an open message, it usually put focus on the attachments list.

You can then use right arrow or left arrow to move around, Jaws says “Press Alt+Down arrow for more options” and either that or Shift+F10 will open the menu where you have things like “Open”, “Save As”, “Save All Attachments”, “Remove Attachment” etc.

Danney:

 

I’m  using Outlook 2016, but you should be able to access all attachments by first doing a shift-tab, and then, once in the attachments list, use your right and left arrow keys to get the names of those attachments.

 

At least,  this has always worked for me.

 

Am using  Jaws 18 here.

Re: wireless headsets and keyboards are at risk too.

No one wants to hack our pc or our facebook... If we were rich and famous or had a high security job maybe. Otherwise no one is interested in hacking you or me... It just isnt worth the work involved. People need to stop over hyping hacking it is not an issue for the average user that uses common sensse while on the net. Sure a sniper could shoot me as I walk out my door. but do we worry about that constantly?

Someheadsets do have longer range, but nowadays usually are digital and once again it would not be very straight forward to intercept this and listen, but even if one could this would not give anybody access to your Facebook account or other accounts which would only be possible if they can somehow record what you type on your keyboard.
