Re: ctrl-pgup and ctrl-pgdn in word2016

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

I believe I reported it to both Microsoft and FreedomScientific, but it has been around a long time.

So, you either have to restart word after a search, or settle for using page-up and page-down by themselves to move one screen at a time.

Not great choices.

Does jaws know about this bug?

So if I hear you right,

I must restart word each and every time after I do a search on a document?

The previous and next occurrence refers to your last find command.

I believe this is a Word issue.

If I start fresh with a session using Word 2016, control-page up and down behave correctly.

If I then search for a word, from that point on, they attempt to repeat the search, which is not helpful.

Hi guys:

 

Got win10 msword2016 and jaws2018… (newest one);

 

My question is:

Whilst in word,

When I do a control page up or control page down,

Instead of moving forwards and backwards through pages of a document,

It says something like “previous and next occurrence” and puts me in some dialogue box?

 

Is jaws doing this?

 

Please advise further.

List Rules - Thu, 2/1/18 #cal-notice

main@jfw.groups.io Calendar <noreply@...>
 

List Rules

When:
Thursday, 1 February 2018
12:00am to 1:00am
(GMT-05:00) America/New York

Description:
The following is the current version of the JFW Mailing List policies. These are sent out monthly, and also available from:

http://groups.io/g/jfw/wiki/List-Policies 

 

**List Policies**

1: Keep it clean. We're a family list, and there are people here who probably don't want to hear everything *exactly* that's running through your head. If you wouldn't see it on TV, it doesn't belong in a post to the list. If you're not sure, email the administration before you post it to the list. Otherwise, you stand to see your posts moderated.

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

3: Listen to, and respect, the wishes of the admins/moderators. If you're asked by an admin or moderator to drop a subject, or take something to private emails (in the instance of two people carrying on a thread list-wide), please do so. If the subject is changed on a thread by an admin or moderator, it will be explained why in the email sent out with it. Please don't continue replying to the old subject.

4: Don't ask over the list for a position on the list administration. If you'd like to help out, it's of course welcome, but address the request to do so to the admin team, otherwise it'll be ignored. Requests are always welcome, whether help is being looked for or not. When help is needed, a post will be made to the list. The requests already received will be kept in mind.

5: Keep flaming to a minimum. This is not limited to flaming of each other, but goes beyond that, to flaming of products, opinions, ideas, suggestions, etc. Constructive criticism never hurts. Flame wars, especially public ones, both drive people from this list and are unwelcome here. either take the problem to private emails, or report the problem to list administration.

6. Respect the opinions and views of others. This is *very* important in any environment, most especially an online environment where the only gage one has on a person is what that person puts to writing. If you come off as hostile in your posting, whether you intended to or not, people will take it as such. Online, "face value" means just that. People make mistakes, people don't always have access to the same information you do. For that matter, people don't always have the same experience you do. If you know how someone can solve their problem, great. Suggest it to them and/or the list. Do *not* proceed to tell someone, on or off list, that they have no business posting. Repeat offenders of this particular rule will be banned for a week to 30 days, depending on the severity. Serious problems will be banned permanently.

As always, if there are problems or questions with regards these policies, don't hesitate to send them off-list to jfw+owner@groups.io

James,
List Admin

What version are you useing? Some people are having trouble with the newest version and I know one of the previous versions was just as you describe. No way to select songs or create play lists to transfer to your IPhone/Ipod.

It is necessary to turn off all pop up blockers. The reply button that
reveals the means to contact the poster will only work if pop up
blockers are turned off in the browser.

for key terms. In your case the word laptop. Press F3 to go to each match
on that page. Do this for each page in that category. To listen to the
entire list is crazy especially when it is a long list over several pages.
Once you find something of interest, then I enter on it to read the details
to find out if I am actually interested. If I am, I will use the
select/copy command and paste the key details in a word file so I do not
need to find this again. Also once you have entered on an ad, the visited
jaws internet hot key will work, so that can speed navigation as well if
you
do want to return to send an email or to verify information. Keep in mind
the list is fluid because as new ads ar placed, they go to the top of the
list and the other ads move down one. If the item is sold or for some
other
reason, it can disappear.



This is my two cents worth.



Good luck shopping.

Re: Deleting program from system disc

Christopher Zeigler
 

Hello this is Chris
Here is how you can do a refresh.
Step one open settings
Step 2 go to update and security
Step 3 Tom and Chee get to the left column and scroll down to recovery
Step 4 find where it says refresh and it should have a button that says get started you will need to confirm the option before it will refresh the system.
I hope this helps
If you have any questions please feel free to ask and I will try to help to the best I can.

Might I suggest something different if it is available. Perhaps go to the antivirus software companies website and see if they have a removal tool. This might be better than using the Windows uninstaller as some antivirus programs leave remnants of themselves behind.

Re: Deleting program from system disc

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Hi Bill,

 

Using W10, Jaws 2018 and Bullguard.

 

I have an entry for Bullguard  in Program Files with an entry called, uninst.exe which seems like it could be an uninstall program.

 

Also there is an entry in “add remove programs” as well as the system’s tray.

 

If none of the above appear but it is definitely installed then it may be worth installing Bullguard again and hopefully an entry will appear in program files or remove programs so it can be uninstalled.

 

Tom

Thanks Bill.

Sounds like the function could be quite useful.

It takes a lot of the ads, links and buttons out of the page so it can be read more clearly.

In Chrome, I use the extension “JustRead”. You can invoke the same

I have found few pages where the Firefox command won’t work. Most
noteably with any CNN page.

The Safari web browser I used with VoiceOver on my iPhone has a Reader
feature that organizes web pages to bring the body text (such as news
articles) to focus, skipping ads, navigation links, etc. Is there a
similar reader add-on for Internet Explorer or Firefox that works well
with Jaws In Windows?

Thanks for your help!

Re: Quick way to paste URL into an email

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

Hi, Paul. I just tried with Edge, and ALT plus D works there. So, if your
friend has an open URL in Edge, press ALT plus D, then the HOME key, then
SHIFT plus the END key, this will select the entire URL. Now he can copy the
URL with CONTROL plus C, then paste into Outlook with CONTROL plus V.

Subject: Quick way to paste URL into an email

Hi all. I've got a friend on Windows 10 using the Edge browser who recently
asked me if there is a quick way to paste an
open URL into an email message body text. I'm still on Windows 7 so I can't
help. Any suggestions? She's using Outlook
for email, if it matters.

On Win7, with both IE and Chrome, I know this works: alt+D to go to the
address bar, control+C to copy, then in the
message body control+V to paste. I also know Chrome has a menu with an
option to copy the URL, but I don't know a
keyboard shortcut to get there any easier than what I just described.

If I'm on Safari in Mac OS X using VoiceOver, I can do the equivalent:
Command+L to jump to address bar, command+C to
copy, then command+V in the message body text. I also know the Safari
toolbar has a share button, but again there's no
slick way to jump there quickly by default, as far as I know.

Craigslist with JAWS

Joe DiNero
 

Evening Folks

 

Does anyone on here use craigslist on any sort of regular basis and can make any suggestions for navigating the site…it has been a disaster for me since I lost all my usable vision and migrated to JAWS. Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for an inexpensive laptop for testing purposes and want to look at my different options between craigslist and various facebook buy & sell groups.

 

Thanks

Joe
