Hello; give the following a try;


Turn on / off auto capitalization in Outlook 2010 / 2013 / 2016,

Here we will guide you to turn on or off the auto capitalization feature of two initial capitals, capital the first letter of sentences, name of days, and more.

Step 1: Choose the File > Options.

Step 2: Choose the Mail in the left bar.

Step 3: Choose the Spelling and Autocorrect button in the Compose messages section.

Step 4: In the Editor Options dialog box, choose the AutoCorrect Options button.

Step 5: Choose the AutoCorrect tab firstly in the AutoCorrect: English (United States) dialog box, and then:

To turn off correcting two initial capitals, please uncheck the Correct Two Initial Capitals option;


1. To turn off auto capitalizing the first letter of each sentence, please uncheck the Capitalize first letter of sentences option.
2. To turn off auto capitalizing first letter of table cells, please uncheck the Capitalize first letter of table cells option.
3. To turn off auto capitalizing names of days, please uncheck the Capitalize names of days option.
4. To turn off the correcting accidental using of caps lock keys, please uncheck the Correct accidental usage of caps LOCK key option.

So, using jaws,

Down or up arrow until you hear mail,

Tab enter on editor options....,

Tab enter on AutoCorrect Options button...
Hope this gets you pointed in the right direction.

Hi!

I have a new computer, using JAWS 18, Windows 7.
I recently switched from using Outlook.com to Outlook 2016.
I'm encountering a new problem:

When I'm typing a report and want to begin a new line with a5, for example, Outlook is automatically capitalizing the a. How do I stop this from happening?
Any help will be appreciated.

Re: moving by one character

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Tom. Here is what the JAWS help file says about smart navigation.

Smart Navigation
Smart Navigation offers a more efficient way to navigate in web-based
applications, tables, and forms. Use this combo box to select the level of
Smart Navigation to use.

When set to "Controls," most controls are treated as single units when
navigating by character or word, like moving through a menu bar with RIGHT
and LEFT ARROW. When set to "Controls and Tables," controls are treated as
single units when navigating by character or word, while inside a table, the
ARROW keys move between cells. In either case, you can always get to
traditional navigation such as character or word, by pressing the Say
Character, Say Word, or Say Line commands twice quickly so you can explore
the text of the control in more traditional ways. To return to Smart
Navigation, just press DOWN ARROW, ESC, or TAB.

Anytime you are using Smart Navigation, JAWS will work in what is referred
to as "Document Presentation Screen Layout". This offers a much more natural
movement through pages the way they appear on screen. As you navigate by
line on web pages, you will also notice a sound indication if the current
line contains one or more links which would generally be displayed on
separate lines when you are not in Smart Navigation. This sound will help
you identify that a link exists and give you a chance to pause to hear about
it or use TAB or the ARROW keys to move to it.

Smart Navigation is off by default.

Thanks John, that was the problem and now have smart navigation turned off.

Having recently switched from WE, I am finding learning Jaws a bit of a
steep learning curve.

In the startup wizard, there are three options for the smart navigation.The
first is "off", the second is "smart navigation controls only" with the
third being "smart navigation controls in tables".

Can you inform me what the second and third options do?

Thanks
Tom.

Hi,

Using: latest Jaws and W10 64 bit

How can Jaws be made to move one character at a time when on a web site?
Currently if the right arrow is pressed, the entire word will be spoken but
the spelling or details etc can not be examined like it could be by moving
one character
at a time.

The same goes for the contents of a cell in a table. How can the cell
contents be examined one character at a time rather than having the whole
cell read at once?

Thanks

The third one I know, it is only active in tables where you then can
just use the arrow keys by themselves to navigate tables. I leave it

Again no problems with this. There are a couple of key mapping programs you can download them for free and test them out for yourself. When you switch to the Mac side of the computer the key mapping program has no effect. Also if you’ve never done this before be aware that you have the option of having the bootcamped windows side of the computer as the default boot up rather than the Mac.

I will make a comment that I’ve observed about doing this from the windows point of you. That is it it is a very stable computer. It boots up fast and shuts down quickly. It is extremely rare that anything locks up on this computer when I’m in windows. I also have done a lot of jaws script writing using both of these computers and there has never been a problem with jaws.

Hello there,
I have been using win10 on bootcamp with jaws for a while now, there are no issues or limitations as such,but the keyboard layout will follow macs layout,that is fn,control,option,cmd, in windows case,that key would be the win key. which may take a bit getting used to.
Or of course,you could use a tool like Sharp keys,to change the keyboard layout to the windows style, this wont affect your mac side of things.

Hi there everyone. Is there anyone on this list who has Jaws installed on Mac with a Virtual Machine like Bootcamp running Windows? How do you find it? Are there any limitations? Would you recommend installing it that way? Does the Keyloard work properly?

Re: Keystroke for minimizing ribbons

Another way you can maximize or minimize the ribbon is,

1, enter on a message,

2, press the alt-key to bring up the menu,

3, now press the applications key, up arrow you will hear either collapse
ribbon checked, or, collapse ribbon.

Obviously, if you hear ribbon collapsed checked the ribbon is already
minimized.
If it is checked, just press the enter key to uncheck and the ribbon will be
maximized again.

With mine, I could not tell that Control+f1 did anything
either.

Thank you.

Yes I am. It is a lot easier than using any of the VM ware or other Softwares. You can easily switch between Mark and window's. On start up you hold down the option key and use your left or right arrow keys then hit enter.

Re: moving by one character

Maybe you have smart navigation on -- to temporarily turn it off use
insert-x while on the web page.

Hi,

Using: latest Jaws and W10 64 bit

How can Jaws be made to move one character at a time when on a web site? Currently if the right arrow is pressed, the entire word will be spoken but the spelling or details etc can not be examined like it could be by moving one character
at a time.

The same goes for the contents of a cell in a table. How can the cell contents be examined one character at a time rather than having the whole cell read at once?

Thanks

Tom

Useing Jaws 18.0.4350 (Latest release)
Windows 1703
I just checked all 3 browsers and right arrow moves by 1 character in all of them. So I think you have a problem with your Jaws install. Try repairing it.
