Re: An Excel Question

Dave...
 


Joe,
 
Haven't used that split screen idea for several years, and I wonder if Excel is capable of doing that? Ann suggests hiding either rows or columns to bring the totals into the viewable area.
 
Another approach is to assign those subtotals, either as a set of cells, or individual cells to monitors so you can check them with a keystroke. Look up cell monitors in the JAWS help, or assign them in the JAWS+V dialog.

I am aware of reading the columns and rows which is not the issue. Let me explain in a little more detail I have a 150 row spreadsheet that I use to prepare annual budgets with a multiple subtotal areas for various income/expense categories. I used to use split screens to view one area of the spreadsheet while viewing another area simultaneously I can still split the screen with menus however I don’t know how to tab back and forth between those 2 split areas. Hopefully that makes sense

Hello. There’s a way to modify your spreadsheets so that JAWS reads the row and column titles as you navigate. Dan Clark did a daisy book on this feature It’s in the JAWS training materials. I use this feature in my spreadsheets.

It would be clumsy, but you could use goto. If you don't need the between rows, you could hide them.
Neither good, though.

Hi Val,

As for your problem, I'd be happy to help if you'd prefer you can write me off list and I can give some advice on things you can do to speed up your PC at start up. If you want to write me off list my email is paul.lemm@sky.com, I'm just off to take my guide dog for a walk since with all the snow we've had in the UK he hasn't been out as much as usual these past few days and the snows finally faded away so I owe him a nice long walk lol. But once I'm back from the walk I'll be more than happy to help.

There are a couple of easier steps to achieve a faster running PC at start up. Someone did suggest a re install of windows, but if you're running windows 10, which I think from a previous post about something else you said you were you can just reinstall windows without formatting or creating USB drives etc , it’s a really straight forward thing to do using windows 10. The other thing you can do is stop the start up programs running when your PC starts. Again there are a couple of ways to do this and some are quite straight forward. I haven't been following this post so not sure if someone has already suggested these fixes or whether you've sorted the problem yet, but if you haven't let me know and I'd be happy to help

One thing that drives me crazy is computer knowledgeable people who don’t check their spelling before sending a message. It’s not just not checking the spelling, it is also making sure all words are complete.  I E, I got a message from a sighted person the other day, and instead, of putting I’ll, she put, ill.  It took me a few seconds to figure out what she meant. I thought, Darling, can’t you at least check your words, and spelling before sending a message?  Are you so busy in making yourself busy that you can’t check your spelling? Some create work for themselves.  Then say they are too busy.

I must agree with Jim here.  When Window Eyes was abolished, a lot of us had to learn JAWS.  To the best of my knowledge, no one from this group was condemnatory and expected us former W E users to get with the program. So, dry your tears and use your JAWS and the rest of you to ask away.  I jokingly tell some of my clients, “If I don’t know the answer, I’ll make one up.  You’ll never know.”  Grin.

We all need help, so don't be afraid to ask for help. And from time to time as = you get better on the computer, you can help someone with a problem you once had.

Inquiry about POS solution called LS One Retail

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Hi,

 

Not sure how many people are into retail and POS solutions, but I thought it won’t hurt to ask. I am looking at a new POS solution for my retail store and came across LS One Retail. I was told that this is pretty strong in Europe and that they are pushing into North America. I am in Canada and have been using Microsoft RMS (Retail Management Solution) which is also known as “Store Operations” since 2006. RMS support and development was discontinued in 2016 and while the software runs pretty well for the most part and will most likely be used by many a business many years from now, I am looking at a replacement.

The most direct replacement is called Retail Management Hero (RMH) and is being distributed by a company called Retail Realm. I was on their beta program early last year and the application was released in June last year, but unfortunately the interface for both the POS module as well as the back office Management module is not very accessible at all. At first it sounded as if the developer/programmer was quite interested in working on accessibility, but of course they had bigger fish to fry in the first year since release, features were added and so on and at this point it would appear that they are not so interested any more in investing a bunch of resources for one lonely little Sieghard whom they would gain as a user.

LS One Retail does have the ability to import the SQL database from RMS as well so hopefully this would result in a pretty easy transition, but the other main issue is that they as well as RMH both work with the Nitrosell eCommerce platform.

My current website/online store is done by Nitrosell since they developed an application which connects my old Microsoft RMS database with the webstore and automatically uploads all items I mark as “Available on the web” and any weborders are downloaded to the POS, it works great. I am not very interested in switching to a different platform/provider for my website at this point since I have invested a fair bit into Nitrosell’s solution and I’m happy with what they do.

If anybody has heard about LS One Retail or even might have any knowledge about its accessibility I’d love to hear about it. I just downloaded the 14-day trail version which apparently is fully functional for 2 weeks so I will of course find out, but I thought it wouldn’t hurt asking on the list about it.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

If an original  thread’s content has changed from its subject line, then it’s petered out.

Nothing wrong with starting a new thread reflecting this change rather than only changing the subject line on a  dead one only making it harder to sort or filter out or what have you later.

All you do to change a subject is Shift-Tab from the body of the email, once you have pressed Control-R to send out the message. When you Shift-Tab, you will be in the Subject field, and just back space until all of the text on the subject line is removed. Then write in a subject line that is associated with what you are going to say in the email. I just did.

Hi Mike!

I'm not only ignorant about Jaws and win10, but about the in's and out's of a computer.

I'm not good at making up a subject line or varying it, which the moderater said i should do!

Thanks again!

Re: computer slow after start up.

paul lemm
 

Hi Val,

There are a couple of easier steps to achieve a faster running PC at start up. Someone did suggest a re install of windows, but if you're running windows 10, which I think from a previous post about something else you said you were you can just reinstall windows without formatting or creating USB drives etc , it’s a really straight forward thing to do using windows 10. The other thing you can do is stop the start up programs running when your PC starts. Again there are a couple of ways to do this and some are quite straight forward. I haven't been following this post so not sure if someone has already suggested these fixes or whether you've sorted the problem yet, but if you haven't let me know and I'd be happy to help

Once you are done reinstall Jaws and instal the applications you

! I have now removed eset Nov32, but there are still quite a few
things on here which i'd be frightened to remove. One of them is
Levono settings, another is Levono companion. I've also got
office 365, and some others which were on when i got the computer.

I have tried N.v.d.a, and this seems to be a bit quicker at
starting up than Jaws.Hi

Greetings,
I'm hearing a message from time to time in Outlook 2016 that says your outlook to settings are out of date.
I have an office 365 subscription.
Before I call microsoft, could someone tell me how to click on a notification message in Windows 10 with Jaws 2018?
I've tried windows-key-n, which I thought I had read on here, but that doesn't work.
Thanks,
Richard

Re; changing subject lines

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

Hi Carolyn,

If someone is using threading, or conversations, just changing the subject line doesn't change how the message is treated.  It will still show up in conversations/threads under the original subject.

 

To truly change a thread/conversation you have to start a brand new message.  That is what I did with this message.

 

For me, I've missed some messages because someone simply changed the subject line on a thread I was no longer interested in, and so I deleted the messages and only found out later, that I could have helped or been helped by the new topic.

 

I hope that comes across as trying to be helpful and not as a criticism.  It is so difficult to communicate without voice tones, etc.  I truly only mean this as a clarifying message.

 

HTH,

Richard
