Re: Looking for Accessible Image Manipulation Program

Hi Brian!

 

Bulk Image Manager seems neat, but the flipping of an image upon resize is sort of a show-stopper.  So, I am still looking.  I would need to have a sighted person review every image I resized to correct for rotation.  That sort of defeats my aim of being to do some basic image manipulation independently.  The main thing I want is the ability to resize an image while maintaining its aspect ratio.

 

Thanks,

Richard

I have used the very simple, and very useful, Bulk Image Manager for a long time now.

See:  https://sourceforge.net/projects/dinoimages/

Given when it was developed, and the old Windows 7 style interface, I would presume it has to be accessible.   It's free to try in any case.  The only thing I don't like about it is if a picture is taken in portrait orientation rather than the more traditional landscape, if you resize it the image ends up being rotated.  You don't lose anything, but it could be a surprise if you don't know it's happened and you expect the orientation of all photos resized to remain as they originally were.

Hi Jason!

 

Well, I am still looking.  Image Magick seems like a really powerful program; but it seems to function mostly from the command prompt, which is sort of cumbersome.  And, from the Windows GUI, for the resize function it does not auto scale width/height maintaining aspect ratio but rather requires that both of these parameters be entered.  That is the main thing I am looking for.  Perhaps this function is somewhere in the toolbar, but that area seems inaccessible as is the status bar.  Might you know how to access these areas of the application?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Re: Disabling "copyright" symbol in Word 2016

Hello,

 

I have Word 2013, Windows 7, and JAWS 18.  Do you know how to take out the © sign in 2013?  Thank you in advance for this information.

Hi Margaret,

 

There's two ways you can do this. First is easy but has to be done repeatedly, second is more long-winded but fixes it for good.

 

Easy way: whenever you do this and JAWS says "copyright", press Backspace once. When you press the right parenth key, Word changes what you've typed into the copyright symbol and JAWS echoes this. pressing Backspace immediately undoes the change.

 

More long-winded way: Press Alt, F, T to open the Options dialogue.

DownArrow to Proofing

Tab to AutoCorrect Options and press Enter to open the AutoCorrect dialogue

You should be in an edit area. Type (c), that's left parenth c right parenth

Tab to the Delete button and press it

OK out of both dialogues

You should find now typing (c) doesn't give you a copyright symbol at all.

 

Hope that helps,

Steve

Hello, group.

Whenever I type a document in Word 2016, and I number a line as -parentheses, the letter c, closed parentheses -, it always reads "copyright". It is a little annoying for me to keep hearing this. It does it automatically when I type in Word 2016; I am not inserting the "copyright" symbol from the list. Is there a way to stop JAWS from reading the "c" as "copyright"? Thanks. I am running Windows 8.1 with JAWS 16.

Re: Outlook 2010 calendar

Jason White
 

I generally just use tab and shift+tab to navigate between appointments in Day View, and press enter to reveal the details, if notes or other fields that aren’t displayed by default are necessary. There are also JAWS keystrokes for the calendar, but I haven’t needed them.

 

A not so obvious suggestion: if you need to know who has been invited to a meeting, use Alt+h, U to invoke the scheduling assistant (even if you aren’t the meeting organizer). It will show a list of invitees and their availability.

Jeff,

Yes I want to keep my hands off that number pad. This can be problematic when in this program. If I accidentally press a number it will override the data in the cell.

I want to be able to read what is there then be able to choose to change it with the number pad if needed. I am finding that I have to keep jumping in and out of the different curser modes and numbers on and off frequently.

I don’t know why but the insert numpad8 reads 3 of the five fields and the numpad 7 reads the other two fields.

I didn’t want to change everything about the set up but make a different set of keys that would do the same thing using only the modifiers and letter keys.

I would like it if maybe I could just use them in this program alone but if I can’t well…

I am used to WE and the only time you used the number pad to read anything was when using the mouse. Easy enough to do. With Jaws you use all those keys all the time to manipulate all of the cursers.



I have toyed with the idea of using the differentiate between number pad arrows and the “extended” arrow keys but I am not sure how that would work. I might have to remap all the key functions off that number pad.

Do you not want to use the actual “insert”+”home” keys either? or the “insert”+”up arrow key” combination? Are you just wanting the command combo to be on the main keyboard/ alphanumeric and modifier keys?

Hello all,

I am not at all sure how to explain what I want to do but I am going to try.

Jaws has a Key stroke “Insert Num pad 8” Which in the keyboard help says that it “JAWSKey+UpArrow Says the current line.”

This key stroke in my time collection program reads the job and job type.



What I want is exactly what this is doing but, I want to make a different set of keys do this action. I want to keep my fingers off the number pad.

I would prefer something like Ctrl Shift J.

And if possible make this only apply to one program.

Can I do this?
If so I want to do the same thing to the “insert numpad7” JAWSKey+Home Says the text from the beginning of the line up to the active cursor.



Can I mimic the behavior of these key strokes with different keys?



Thanks a lot!

Accessibility depends on whether your company used customized controls, etc. If they created a standard form, you should be able to access it. It's not difficult to find records. You access the find dialog with the Control+F short cut or locate it on the ribbon. For example, If you want to find a person with the last name of Smith, put your cursor in the last name field and activate the Find dialog box. Type the name Smith and Activate either the ok or find next button. Just tab through the dialog and you will find the correct button to activate. Press the escape key and you'll be on the proper record. Do you know if the company has created any master/detail relationships, If they have, you'll locate the customer in the master record first then use the Control+Tab keystroke to move through the master record until you get to the detail record. Also, as with any other office application, get to know your ribbons. I hope this helps.
Paul

Hi everyone,

As part of my job I am expected to look through a database of people who need to make appointments and it is done in Access. I never have used it bwefore. Any helpful tips that you have would be great.

thanks,

Re: asining key board commands to different keys?

Richard,

Yes that one is duplicated with the extended up arrow and the insert key but the number pad 7 is not right there with the extended arrow keys. Not easy to reach for that information.

Too bad you can’t have all three i.e. both insert keys and the cap lock at the same time as modifiers.

I am thinking that a new keyboard layout would be the way to go but that is going to take a lot more time and knowledge that I don’t have yet.

Thanks

Shannon

that keystroke works with the standard up arrow key. If you have the capslock key set to work like the insert key, you could do capslock plus the regular up arrow.

I use the NumPad insert plus the regular up arrow all the time.

 

But you could keep your hands off the numpad by using the capslock.

Richard

Hi,


Offhand, I haven't a clue how you would set that up, especially for just one application. Are there other keystroke combinations that you want to change, or just the insert+up arrow on the num pad? If there are other combinations that you find troublesome, why not change to the laptop layout while you're in the app, then switch back to the desktop layout when you're finished. It may be more hassle than it's worth, especially if you're bouncing in and out of that window all the time, but hey, I thought I'd throw that out as a possible suggestion anyway.

Hello all,

I am not at all sure how to explain what I want to do but I am going to try.

Jaws has a Key stroke “Insert Num pad 8” Which in the keyboard help says that it “JAWSKey+UpArrow
Says the current line.”

This key stroke in my time collection program reads the job and job type.

 

What I want is exactly what this is doing but, I want to make a different set of keys do this action. I want to keep my fingers off the number pad.

I would prefer something like Ctrl Shift J.

And if possible make this only apply to one program.

Can I do this?
If so I want to do the same thing to the “insert numpad7” JAWSKey+Home
Says the text from the beginning of the line up to the active cursor.

 

Can I mimic the behavior of these key strokes with different keys?

 

Thanks a lot!

Shannon


Re: Using JAWS to download book from Audible.Com

Richard Turner
 

The Audible app is free.
The books can cost $15 to $45 individually.
You can get a membership with 1 credit a month, which will get you most books, for $14.95 per month. Or, a Gold membership gets 12 credits at once for $149.50, which brings your per credit price down to about $12.59. There is also a Platinum membership that get 24 credits at once, but trying to read 24 books a year from one source is nothing I've tried to accomplish.
All the details are on their web site.
HTH,
Richard

This app sounds pretty cool. How much does it cost, I'm assuming it's a monthly subscription cost?

If you have an iPhone (I assume Audible would also be accessible on Android) I can only recommend to use the Audible app. As was pointed out already, on the iPhone the app is super accessible and it's super easy to listen to all your books. I have been an Audible member since 2010 I think and have probably 700 or 800 books by now and I can easily find and download any of them by author or title and listen or re-listen to them. The app let's you go directly to any chapter, you can skip by chapter or by time interval and there is a built-in sleep timer and if you have any Airplay enabled speakers or an Apple TV you can also Airplay your book to those.

Hello,

First you need to install the audible app from the website. Then, you go to your library, and press enter on the Download link that can be found under the book title if I remember well. As for transfering that book to an external device, I'm afraid I can't help with that since I have never done it.

Hope this helps a bit!

Tom,

Thanks for the idea but as you pointed out it would be a pain since I jump in and out of that program all the time.

I need to be in multiple programs at once.

Thanks again

Re: asining key board commands to different keys?

Jeff,

Yes I want to keep my hands off that number pad. This can be problematic when in this program. If I accidentally press a number it will override the data in the cell.

I want to be able to read what is there then be able to choose to change it with the number pad if needed. I am finding that I have to keep jumping in and out of the different curser modes and numbers on and off frequently.

I don’t know why but the insert numpad8 reads 3 of the five fields and the numpad 7 reads the other two fields.

I didn’t want to change everything about the set up but make a different set of keys that would do the same thing using only the modifiers and letter keys.

I would like it if maybe I could just use them in this program alone but if I can’t well…

I am used to WE and the only time you used the number pad to read anything was when using the mouse. Easy enough to do. With Jaws you use all those keys all the time to manipulate all of the cursers.

 

I have toyed with the idea of using the differentiate between number pad arrows and the “extended” arrow keys but I am not sure how that would work. I might have to remap all the key functions off that number pad.
