Hi,

If you are using desktop layout:

Insert + Spacebar (insert on the numeric keypad is the Jaws key when the numlock key is turned off)

Then F11

This will turn the screen curtain on if it is off and off if it is on.

Hope that helps.

Merv

Jackie,

Glad to hear it was a non-issue for  you. 

 

I do use the Task List in Outlook.  It’s not my primary task list, but I do like it, especially for things that I need to do a week or further out.   The primary way I use it is to go to the list with Control 4.  Recall that I’m still in Outlook 2010, so I’m not sure if it will look different for you.  When you open the task list, focus is at the top of the list on a  line that I believe allows sighted users to click to open a new task. Using my arrow keys, I go through my task list to hear what I have to do.  There are lots of visual ways that sighted users can flag tasks and categorize them.  I supposed this works if JAWS will read the flags, but it’s too cumbersome for me, so I just simply go by name of the task and due date.  At least in my case, they are ordered from top to bottom starting with the most recent due date.  I have a few items with no due date and those are at the very top. 

 

To create a new one, hit alt N and a window will open up. Focus is in the place to name the task.  From here, the only things I add is a start date. Outlook will default the due date to the start date you entered. You can change it if you want.  I also have mine to set a reminder by default.  I think you can set this default option in the Outlook options.  You can also change it by tabbing through the fields.   When a task is due, I get a pop-up in the same window as any meeting alarms.  To clear a task, just hit delete on it in the task list.  The one caveat is if have something on your task list that is related to an email or meeting you have flagged for follow-up.  For example, if I send an email to someone and I want to be sure I get a reply by a certain date, I will go into my sent mail folder and highlight the message. On the context menu, I select the follow-up option, then either pick one of the options or hit custom to set a specific date.  This leaves the message in my Sent mail folder, but also adds it to my Task list.  When you want to delete the task, hitting delete in the task list will delete the task and the message. You’ll get a warning, so don’t panic.  Instead, what you want to do is to highlight the task and select the option to remove the follow-up flag from the context menu. I think it’s the last option on the context menu, so I will hit the application key, then arrow up once to hear “Remove” and hit enter. 

 

Is there something else specific you are having challenges with in Tasks that I may be able to address specifically?   In essence for me, I do get alarms, but I also go into my task list on a regular basis and just scroll through the list to refresh my mind of what’s on it.

 

I’m getting better as using the calendar by tabbing.  Not sur how helpful I can be there, but happy to help if I can.   I do also have my work email linked to my iPhone and can review my calendar and task list from the phone, which is nice.  I prefer how the phone can give me a simply list of my appointments in a list format so I don’t’ have to go day by day in Outlook.  Window Eyes had a function to do this in Outlook, but it doesn’t seem JAWS does, so I think I’ll be relying on my phone when I’m trying to get an overall feel for my work week.  I do also use the search function in the calendar to find certain events, such as when I cannot recall when my dentist appointment is.  Outlook will pull up the search results in a list format, so I can figure out the date and open the appointment, if needed.

Hi All,

 

I’m working with google forms for a project.

 

I have noticed that when I sent the form to my friend to review, that it shows up as blank in firefox, and internet explorer.  In chrome and edge it reads just fine.  In firefox or IE, if I cycle virtual pc cursor off then on, then the form reads great.

 

Any ideas why the form might not read right from the start in ff or ie?

 

Thanks.

I use office 365.  Word and excel are very similar to the earlier versions and I have had no problems with them.  Outlook is a little different, you need to use f6 and shift-f6 to move between mail boxes, but it does work.

Did you delete the existing partition and creat a new 32 GB partition, then format the new partition or, did you reduce the size of the 64 GB partition to a 32 GB partition?

 

Wichever you did, you should be able to create an additional partition on the SD card, using the remaining space. With a bit of luck, your HIMS Device might read both partitions on the SD Card.

Hello Nino:

 

In respect to the SD card you wish to repartition:

 

1. Open Windows Explorer

 

2. Press the DOWN ARROW, until the SD card is highlighted.

 

3, Press ALT+ENTER, to open the properties for the SD card.

 

4. Route the JAWS Cursor to the PC cursor.

 

5. Use the NUM PAD DOWN ARROW, until JAWS says, "Capacity", followed by a long string of numbers, which is the total number of bytes for the card,followed by the total capacity in GB. Make a note of the total number of bytes, as this will be important when allocating the amount of space for the new or resized partition.

 

6. Press ALT+F4, to Close Windows Explorer.

 

7. in the Aomi partitioning software, , check to see if it has a function for increasing or decreasing the size of partitions. It might be better using that function, rather than deleting the existing partition and creating a new partition.

 

8. If it has such a function, check the edit fields. If one of the edit fields says something like, "Enter the maximum number of bytes for the resized partition:, devide the total number of bytes by 2, and enter the result in the edit field.

 

9. Follow the programs instructions to perform the action to reduce the size of the partition.

 

Note: Whether you delete the existing partition and create a new partition or, whether you resize the existing partition, bear in mind , your HIMS device may not recognize the 32 gb partition, This may be due to the HIMS software reading the total size of the SD card, in this case, 64 GB, and determining that it cannot access a partition or partitions on the SD card, even though a partition or partitions are of a size, which it could access, if the SD card was a 32 GB SD card. In my opinion, save yourself the bother, trouble and hassle, buy  a 32 GB SD card. Of course, in the short term, doing so, will cause some pain, aghony  and misery to the bank balance but,in the long-term, you will perminently have an SD card, which is the right capacity for your HIMS device, plus you will have access to the full 64 GB capacity of the 64 GB SD card.

Hello Nino:

 

Is the drive you are wishing to perform partition activities, an internal drive?

 

Do you have more than the system drive and this particular drive connected to the computer as internal drives?

 

If So, power off the computer, disconnect all internal drives, except for the system drive and the particular drive on which you wish to perform the partition activities, likewise, disconnect any external drives as well. By doing this, you will minimize accidentally doing something to another drive which you did not intend to do.

 

I stupidly did not do this, and instantly regreted not doing so, when I accidentally started an erase function on a drive, only to find to my horror, I had started erasing a drive, which I did not wish, nor wanted to be erased. Fortunately, I quickly realized my ghastly mistake, and was able to stop the erase function. I sent the drive to a company which specializes in data recovery. Fortunately for me, they recovered virtually the entire data on the drive, in  its original organized layout. These companies are sometimes able to recover data from drives, even if the partition has become corrupted in some way.

Thank you, Kathy Ann. Now I understand what the tutorial was trying to tell me—I’m just not used to this yet so didn’t follow what it was actually saying to do. And no worries, Nino. You have all been helpful, and I appreciate the help more than any of you will know.

  

Cheerfully,

Shirley Tracy

Help! How do I add an attachment to an email I’m sending someone? The directions Microsoft gives in the tutorial doesn’t work. Any ideas? Key strokes with JAWS?

 

Thanks for any help.

When in a new message, do the following:

 

1. Press ALT to enter command mode, this places you in the ribbon

2. press RIGHT ARROW until focus is on the ”Insert” ribbon

3. Press DOWN ARROW to locate “Files”

4. Press ENTER. This opens the “Open File” dialog through which you can select and attach a file.

Hi:

 

If you are using outlook 2016 do the following

 

In outlook in the message press altn

2  tab over until you here insert atachments.

 

The alt n command is the insert command. When you open the attachments dialog box you can tab until you find your computer folders and drives.

Locate the file that you want to send and press the spacebar  tab to the left and you should find an insert button.

 

If you want to send more than one file at a time.

 

Open the attachments dialog box and hold down the control key now you can select files with the spacebar then click insert.

 

I will be checking my email through the evening if you need more help I will be happy to help you My name is Nino.

 

Have a good evening.

Hello everyone:

A few weeks ago there was a discussion on the list, about activating sound
in Safe Mode.

I posted that I would be willing to share a .reg file which I obtained from
another member on this list, that would allow this to happen and I also said
I would provide instructions.

Unfortunately, due to some health problems and due to a problem with my
email client, I lost the entire contents of my inbox, including those list
members who sent me emails requesting the .reg file and the instructions.

If you are still interested in receiving the .reg file and instructions on
how to activate soundin Safe Mode, please email me at:

d.durber@gmail.com

including your email address in the body of the message, and I will reply to
the messages as quickly as possible.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber
