You can open a PDF document in Microsoft Word like any other document in Microsoft Word.

 

In the “Open Field” dialog (CTRL-F12), navigate to the document and activate it.

 

Word opens a dialog asking if you want to convert the PDF document and alerts you it could take some time.  Activate the OK button.

If you want to avoid this dialog in the future, check the “Don’t show this message in the future” checkbox.

 

The document  is converted and opens in Microsoft Word.

 

To save the document, use the “Save As” dialog (F12).

 

I hope this answers your question.

Subject: Opening A PDF File In Word?

 

Hello, everyone.

 

Please forgive this request for previously-posted information, but could someone re-post the instructions for opening and saving a PDF document in Microsoft Word?

 

I have  a PDF file here, in which words are running together, and I’d like to try that approach to see if it remedies the problem.

 

Thanks in advance for the help!

I noticed  this too.  Here’s what I’m doing.

 

1. Focus on the first entry in the group list

2. Route JAWS to PC and  use the JAWS cursor to navigate among the entries

3. When focused on an entry you’d like to edit, route PC to JAWS. This places focus on the  same entry as the JAWS Cursor

 

Edit as needed, rinse and repeat.

Subject: Continued Problems With Navigating And Editing An E-mail Group In Outlook 2016

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I think I have posted this quiry before, and probably need to call either VFO or the Microsoft Accessibility Hotline about this, but I thought I’d give it one more try here.

 

Ever since either a Jaws update, or an Office 365 update, I am no longer able to navigate and edit the entries in an e-mail group like I used to be able to do.

 

The arrow keys no longer work, in that I get stuck on the first entry in the group, and can’t navigate any further.

 

 

I can use my Jaws cursor to read the members of the group, but that is not helpful when I want to delete or edit one of the group entries.

 

If anyone has experienced this issue, and found a work-around, please let me know.

 

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2018, and Office 365 on a Windows 7 laptop here.

In Outlook 2016, Within an open email, do the following:

 

  1. Open the Home ribbon (ALT-H)
  2. Open the “Action” command (A)
  3. Within the drop-down list, activate “view in Browser” (V)

 

You may get a dialog warning you of viruses.  If you’re sure you want to open the email in your browser, activate the OK button. 

There’s also a checkbox to never be asked that question again that you can check.

 

After you activate the OK button, the email opens in your default browser.

Hi Again Barbara,

 

When you press CTRL-O in Microsoft Word, you enter Backstage View.  This is a custom interface of Microsoft Office 2016 and isn’t the Open File dialog to which you’ve become accustomed.

 

To open the “Open File” dialog of Windows, press CTRL-F12.  Once you open the dialog, press SHIFT-TAB until focus is in the list view.  Once in the list view, JAWS announces the number of items in the focused folder.

Thanks in advance for any help.

moderated Re: spell checking options in Word and Outlook

CathyAnne Murtha <cathy@...>
 

There is a similar feature with JAWS.

 

Make sure it’s properly configured in the JAWS for Windows Quick Settings of Microsoft Word:

  • Make sure focus is in Microsoft Word
  • Open the JAWS Quick Settings of Word (JAWS KEY-V)
  • Within the tree view, focus on “Editing Options”
  • Configure the following:
    • Autocorrect Detection – ON
    • Spelling Error Detection – ON
    • Grammatical Errors (Optional) On or On + Count
  • Save the changes and close the dialog.

 

Now you can list the spelling errors or navigate among spelling errors with Navigation Quick Keys.

 

Display a list of misspelled words within the document with ALT-SHIFT-L.

Navigate the list with ARROW KEYS and press ENTER to focus on the misspelled word within the document.

 

To use Navigation Quick Keys:

  • Toggle the JAWS Navigation Quick Keys with JAWS KEY-Z
  • Press M and SHIFT-M to navigate among spelling errors in a Word document.

 

Focus is placed on the next or previous spelling error.  You can repair the error yourself or use the Windows Application Menu.

 

To use the application menu:

  • Press the WINDOWS APPLICATION KEY (the key to the left of the right CTRL)
  • A list of suggested replacements is displayed
  • Navigate the list with UP AND DOWN ARROW
  • Press ENTER on a selection to replace the misspelled word with the replacement

 

After spell checking the document, disable the Navigation Quick Keys with JAWS KEY-Z.

Because Word 2016 doesn’t have draft view anymore, but they still call web layout view draft view in the advanced settings. It’s kind of confusing to me, too. You’ll know if you did it right, though, because your pages will come in order instead of only odd numbers.

Hi, Shannon. ALT plus W, 1, makes the entire document one column. This will accomplish what you want, but if you change the default setting to either draft view or Web layout, all new documents you create will remain as a one-page-per-screen document. Plus, if you make one change, such as inserting a blank line, then take it out, change the document to Web Layout, and resave the document, it will open in Web Layout view after that. This is a more permanent solution than ALT plus W, 1. Try it and let me know how it works out. Just remember to press F6 until it says Status Pane. That’s where the print and web layout check boxes are located.

Email addresses can be spoofed. I belong to a media sharing list, and often email which is perported to come from someone on the list doesn’t come from them at all. A good hacker can actually make an email look like it came from Bank of America, when in actuality, it didn’t come from that address at all. So, if it didn’t come from there, you certainly won’t be directed to a Bank of America website in the link.

Ya know, Bill, I think that's smart. I go at it from a different angle, by looking at the actual address from which the mail was sent, but your way is equally valid. That one almost nailed me the other day when I was expecting a package and received an email from UPS with information about some package. I looked at the address from whence cameth the email, and lo and behold, it sure weren't from no UPS! HAHHAHHAHHA! I don't think they have UPS in .ru-land (that's of course the Internet country code for Mother Russia). Who knows what might have happened if I had activated the link in that email!

You’re very welcome, Shannon. I’m glad I could post something that would help you.

 

I’ll explain one situation where opening the email in the browser is very important. Sometimes I get an email which says it’s from my bank. The link doesn’t give the URL. Instead, it just says, click here. If you open the email in the browser, Press the applications key or Shift plus F10, and arrow down to “copy shortcut, it will put the actual link into the clipboard. Then you can paste that link into a text file in Notepad, and look at the link to see if the website where the link is directing you is really part of your bank’s website before you click on the link. Sometimes, knowing where the link already took you is too late to avoid a virus or malicious software.

It is nicer to read some mail this way. I often hear the phrase If this message doesn’t work well to click here but I can never find where “Here” is. I thank you for the keystroke to make this happen.

Sometimes I wish it could just be the default for html messages to open there.

correct in installing JAWS from the media she had on hand, without which

JAWS on a new or regenerated system and did or could not prepare for

You don't even have to ever bother with the DVD, ity just adds an extra step, you could have just downloaded Jaws 2018 version 1803.24 (the March update) and installed it. I have no idea why FS insists on wasting resources by sending out these DVD's, as soon as I get mine it goes straight in the trash unopened.

Regards,
Sieghard

Subject: Finally got windows 10 and have questions

Hi everyone,

I posted earlier I had bought an all-in-one computer, but got chicken and returned it. The one I have set up now is much more powerful--refurbished but works really well.

Here are my questions:

1. Do you all have trouble using EDGE? I generally use Internet Explorer or I used to sometimes use Firefox. When trying to read email today, I discovered that Edge will show me the messages but won't open the links. Is there a JAWS key that will open them? I'm using Roadrunner email through Mail.brighthouse.com. I'm using Internet Explorer right now, but I'd use Edge if it's possible.

2. I installed JAWS 1820 from the disk. I then downloaded the March update from the website. Do I need to download each of the other updates? Or will they be in the March update?
Windows 10 doesn't seem too difficult. It's just the learning curve that makes it seem daunting.

Thank you all for your patience. At least I'm trying to learn. (smile).

Robin,

I too loved the way WE let you find the errors in a document with the next and prior key strokes. The closest it gets in Jaws is the

Alt and F7 key. That will jump you to the spelling error where the context menu opens with the spelling choices accessible with the arrow keys. It only works in one direction i.e. forward. If you need to check the beginning you have to start at the beginning.

If you need context of the error press escape and your focus is at the misspelling

I hope that helps

Shannon

I have become very attached to the way that Window Eyes lets me move from spelling error to spelling error within the Word document or email with a keystroke.  I much prefer this to the spelling checking dialog feature in both programs, as it let’s me more quickly review the context and determine what correction is needed.  Is there a similar feature with JAWS?  I really fear I will lose efficiency and effectiveness having to rely solely on the spell check dialog box.

Yes. It says "Show as conversation," not "show a conversation." No biggie, but that's the right checkbox. If it's already unchecked and you are still seeing threads, then there's another one of which I am unaware because I'm not an Outlook user.

Ya know, Bill, I think that's smart. I go at it from a different angle, by looking at the actual address from which the mail was sent, but your way is equally valid. That one almost nailed me the other day when I was expecting a package and received an email from UPS with information about some package. I looked at the address from whence cameth the email, and lo and behold, it sure weren't from no UPS! HAHHAHHAHHA! I don't think they have UPS in .ru-land (that's of course the Internet country code for Mother Russia). Who knows what might have happened if I had activated the link in that email!

You’re very welcome, Shannon. I’m glad I could post something that would help you.

 

I’ll explain one situation where opening the email in the browser is very important. Sometimes I get an email which says it’s from my bank. The link doesn’t give the URL. Instead, it just says, click here. If you open the email in the browser, Press the applications key or Shift plus F10, and arrow down to “copy shortcut, it will put the actual link into the clipboard. Then you can paste that link into a text file in Notepad, and look at the link to see if the website where the link is directing you is really part of your bank’s website before you click on the link. Sometimes, knowing where the link already took you is too late to avoid a virus or malicious software.

Hi Bill,

I did it again and paid attention this time. It is opening the .mtl file in excel. I went to the section of settings and looked for the default apps. The file type .mtl was set to excel for some reason. I changed it to internet explorer and it works as advertised!

It is nicer to read some mail this way. I often hear the phrase If this message doesn’t work well to click here but I can never find where “Here” is. I thank you for the keystroke to make this happen.

Sometimes I wish it could just be the default for html messages to open there.

Throwing the disc in the trash makes sense only if one has access to the installation file. In over thirty-five years of providing technical support, I learned one thing, and I think I learned it the very first day on the job: people treat computers like toasters--i.e., they don't know or care that to make a computer work the way they want it to sometimes requires intimate knowledge of the workings thereof, and a little bit of proper care and maintenance (read "upkeep") of things like software to forestall bad things happening. Shirley was absolutely correct in installing JAWS from the media she had on hand, without which she might have had to wait for someone to download and start running it for her. If ever there comes a time when someone needs to re-install JAWS on a new or regenerated system and did or could not prepare for that event by downloading and saving a copy of the JAWS installation media, then the JAWS disc can be a lifesaver.  I take it from the original message that this was exactly the situation, since the computer was new, so unless Shirley was comfortable using Narrator, or had another method of access to perform the download and run it, what other choices did she have but to use said disc. Good on ya, Shirley!

Bill,

Ok I did it and I am pretty sure I got the right check box for the draft view. Geeeeee there a bunch of choices!

Now just a little confused. I just told it to allow viewing in draft mode with the check box. Why do I want to use the F6 and then choose Web layout and not draft? The particular document I had open only had two pages so I am not sure if I did this correctly just yet but I’ll look for a longer one.

Just wondering why draft in one place and web view in the other?

Hi, Shannon. ALT plus W, 1, makes the entire document one column. This will accomplish what you want, but if you change the default setting to either draft view or Web layout, all new documents you create will remain as a one-page-per-screen document. Plus, if you make one change, such as inserting a blank line, then take it out, change the document to Web Layout, and resave the document, it will open in Web Layout view after that. This is a more permanent solution than ALT plus W, 1. Try it and let me know how it works out. Just remember to press F6 until it says Status Pane. That’s where the print and web layout check boxes are located.

Hi Bill,

 

On my PC I can do this by pressing Alt, H, A, 1, V.

 

Hope that works for you, too.

 

Steve

You’re very welcome, Shannon. I’m glad I could post something that would help you.

 

I’ll explain one situation where opening the email in the browser is very important. Sometimes I get an email which says it’s from my bank. The link doesn’t give the URL. Instead, it just says, click here. If you open the email in the browser, Press the applications key or Shift plus F10, and arrow down to “copy shortcut, it will put the actual link into the clipboard. Then you can paste that link into a text file in Notepad, and look at the link to see if the website where the link is directing you is really part of your bank’s website before you click on the link. Sometimes, knowing where the link already took you is too late to avoid a virus or malicious software.

Hi Bill,

I did it again and paid attention this time. It is opening the .mtl file in excel. I went to the section of settings and looked for the default apps. The file type .mtl was set to excel for some reason. I changed it to internet explorer and it works as advertised!

It is nicer to read some mail this way. I often hear the phrase If this message doesn’t work well to click here but I can never find where “Here” is. I thank you for the keystroke to make this happen.

Sometimes I wish it could just be the default for html messages to open there.

Shannon

Hi, Shannon. I don’t know why it didn’t open in the browser. Mine does by default. What browser do you have set as your default browser? I know Outlook has problems with Chrome.

Bill,

Sorry I don’t know the answer to your Outlook 2016 problem.

I did want to say thank you for the key stroke to do this in Outlook 2010!

I didn’t know that. I just tried it and it does work but in my case it did not open in IE like I thought it would, it opened in excel?

Why did it do that and how do I fixit so it would open in a browser?

Thank You Shannon

Hello. In Outlook 2010, there is a combination of keystrokes that allow an email to be displayed in an Internet Browser from the Outlook 2016 email client. This key combination is:

ALT plus H, A, V. This key combination does not work in Outlook 2016. can someone tell me what the steps are to view an email in the browser from the Outlook 2016 email client? I am not trying to view it by logging in on the web. I am trying to get Outlook 2016 itself to open the email in an html document using the web browser.

 

Thank you.
