Hi, John. Exactly what does the command ALT plus Delete do in Word 2016? Even when I am not in Office, the command ALT plus DELETE gives the screen X,Y coordinants in pixels. I will use the Recycle bin as a reference, and show what the command gives.

 

PC Cursor active
9, 67

 

Perhaps Word 2016 is not giving you the screen position in inches because Word is not set to TAB by number of inches. Have you checked to see if Word 2016 is set to measure tabs in number of inches?

 

This is located in Options|Advanced. I don’t know what the setting in Word 2016 is labelled, but in Word 2010 it is labelled as follows:

 

Show measurements in units of: Combo box

 

By default, Word 2010 is set to inches. Perhaps your copy of Word is set to show in CM (centimeters).

Subject: Word 2016 and the PC cursor

 

                Hello: I am using Jaws 2018 with windows 10. I just started using word 2016. In word 2007, to find out where I was on a line I used alt+delete to read the following by example: "PC cursor active 1 inch from left 6.5 inches from top, Page 5." In word 2016, that doesn't work. Jaws help says to use insert+delete, however, that just gives me the column number and line but doesn't differentiate between whether I am   one inch from the left or 2.5 inches from left.

Is there a key command for this?

Thank you.

Der. Dumb me, this is of course what I meant to type instead of the insert plus alt plus W command which I just realized I typed…

So yes, that’s what I’ve been doing. In fact, what I’m noticing too is that if I get Jaws to come back via this method instead of loading NVDA and then going into the task manager to kill the lingering Jaws processes and getting the Jaws icon out of the system tray, when I alt plus tab back into the Chicken Nugget application window, Jaws will go quiet on me again. I can navigate the PC fine otherwise. Firefox, Outlook, other Office applications, Windows 10, etc. But as soon as I go into the CN window… crickets again. Only if I kill JFW completely with NVDA will I then be able to go back into the CN application window at all without losing Jaws. My Brailliant in this regard helps me since I can tell when the program is loading or has crashed. Sometimes, it seems like Jaws will start up and crash a couple of times before I get speech back just by going off of the display.

Also, I’m using eloquence with both Jaws and NVDA, but so far, NVDA’s held steady and not crapped out on me in CN. This really isn’t a solution though, since NVDA really is a back up get out of jams option for me. I’m a Jaws user through and through for Outlook, Word, Excel and so on and Braille display support while better with NVDA now a days, still isn’t completely quite there yet.

I already wrote VFO about this and of course, I wrote them with the incorrect insert plus alt plus W command. So when they eventually get back to me informing me that I’m using the wrong command, I’m going to have to rmember to make that correction in my reply.

It may not be a solution, but have you tried to unload/reload Jaws with Jaws Key+Alt+F4? If you do try it make sure you give it at least 30 seconds, sometimes it can take Jaws a while to recover itself.

Subject: Jaws recently crashing with Chicken Nugget

 

Hello list,

So recently, I’ve been encountering an issue with the Chicken Nugget twitter client (portable version) and Jaws. Starting on Friday, as I’m down arrowing through the timeline of tweets, Jaws will just crash on me. Sometimes, I can bring Jaws back with the insert plus alt plus W command, but often, I have to resort to launching NVDA and killing the lingering Jaws processes in the task manager to then be able to bring Jaws back.

As mentioned above, this is with the portable Chicken Nugget installer that I’ve been already running for a while. My Jaws is current and while this random crashing hadn’t occurred with earlier versions of Jaws, this issue only started popping up last week. I’ve been running the latest JFW update shortly after it was put out in the middle of April.

I reached out to the CN dev (Accessible Apps) and he confirmed what I figured, that there was nothing on the app’s end that has changed to suddenly caused this.

Are any other Jaws users dealing with anything similar when in CN?

Thanks,

Cristobal

Tab around the different options, and when you hear Search, arrow down to get the listing of current downloads.
If the option is Open or Save, select Save.
If you are downloading from the BARD or NLS library, then only 3 downloads at a time are allowed.  You get a tone when the download is finished, so start another download.
Sometimes at night, it allows 4 at a time.

Hi,

Lately, I have had several instances where I get an email receipt of an purchase made for an audio book or PDF book.  The email contains a link that, when clicked, seems to open a the download manager tool in Internet Explorer.  I have now also failed in understanding how to navigate this so that I can download my file.  I am quite comfortable downloading a file directly from a webpage, but this acts different and I have maxed out my downloads in a couple instances. 

 

Can some kind person explain the concept here?  Obviously clicking on the link triggers the website to think that I have downloaded it, as it’s counting my failed attempts, but it’s not automatically downloading into my downloads folder, so I must be missing steps.  All I know is that I can hit Control J from within IE to open a viewer of some sort, but I’m struggling from there.

WinZip is what I use, and when I download several digital books from BARD/NLS”", I hit Control+A in File Explorer to select all the files, then Shift+F10 to bring up the Context menu.
There are a couple of WinZip items, but you can get to the correct item by hitting the letter Z
In the WinZip menu, whatever task you select, it will act on all the selected files.  In the digital books example above, I select the one that opens all the files into their own folder, using the file name as their folder name.
Hope this helps!

Hi Nino,

 

To unzip multiple files or folders with 7Zip:

 

1. Highlight the file or folders you want to unzip.  They can be both, .ZIP or .RAR files or, just 1 or the other.  This program has the ability to unzip both types at the same time.

 

2. Press the applications / context menu key or, Shift + F10 to open the context menu.

 

3. Press, the #7 on the number row above the main keyboard or, arrow down to 7Zip & press enter.  The first time you use the program you might want to arrow down the list to see what options the program has to offer.

 

4. A. if you are unzipping  a single file / folder arrow down to, extract here, & press enter, and all the files will be extracted to that folder, but beware, they will be extracted as single files rather than being unzipped into a folder.  Use the, Extract To *, option to have all files go into a folder of the same name without the, .Zip, extension.

 

4. B. When you are extracting multiple folders, press enter on the, Extract To *, option.  This will extract all the folders into folders of the same name without the, .Zip, extension.

 

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

moderated Folder Naming / Reading Issue With Windows 10 Pro

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Running Windows 10 Pro latest 1803, J16 thru J2018 latest, & latest NVDA.  There's a little so called trick you do called GodMode, and what this is, is a folder you create using the steps below to put all the Windows control panels within a single folder.  First the info, then my problem!
 
God Mode in Windows 10
Enable God Mode in Windows 10
1. Make sure your system account has administrative privileges
2. Right-click on the Windows 10 desktop and choose New > Folder
3. Name the folder:
 
GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
 
 and hit enter/return to make it stick
You can actually name the folder anything you want like NinjaCat mode. Simply replace 'GodMode' before the {....} characters to your liking.
 
My problem:
When I rename this New folder it remains empty / blank!  Jaws will not read the folder name / title, and even a sighted person does not see a name / title!  But, if you open the folder what ever I've named this folder can be read with the, Alt + D, address bar keystroke, and all the Windows control panels are there.  Does anyone have any idea why this folder, and only this folder, can be named / titled, but not read by a screenreader or by a sighted person?
 
Any and all advice / help will be greatly appreciated and graciously accepted!  Thanks mooy moocho.   

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Starting on Friday, as I’m down arrowing through the timeline of tweets, Jaws will just crash on me. Sometimes, I can bring Jaws back with the insert plus alt plus W command, but often, I have to resort to launching NVDA and killing the lingering Jaws processes in the task manager to then be able to bring Jaws back.

As mentioned above, this is with the portable Chicken Nugget installer that I’ve been already running for a while. My Jaws is current and while this random crashing hadn’t occurred with earlier versions of Jaws, this issue only started popping up last week.
