Office 2016 problems

John Doering
 

Hello:

This is more of a Windows 10 question than a JAWS question, but it did happen the next day after I did a JAWS update.

Is anyone else having a problem with Office 2016 applications not opening?  This has happen twice to me.  Once around the same time in May and now yesterday.  The persons at Windows Accessibility were a great help in fixing the problem, but I am now afraid this is to be a reoccurring problem.

 

Thanks,

 Firewall is not always the issue, Freedom Scientific recommends in my experience agrees, that if you can avoid using the auto update and get it directly from the website most often get a better result

The problem isn’t necessarily the download and installation of the update. The problem sometimes occurs when you want to do a repair of JAWS using the latest JAWS installer. Sometimes it won’t work, because JAWS wasn’t installed with the installer from the website.

Is it better to download the latest version of Jaws and install it over

the top of your existing Jaws or to just update Jaws when it indicates a

update is available?

If you are happy with whatever you have for WiFi you can always just buy a 5-port or 8-port desktop switch. Plug it into one of your 2 ports and bingo, you have 5 or 8 more and no setup is required, also it’s a lot cheaper than a really good router which has the number of ports you want.

I realize that, however, I just don’t want to add a Router that has a stupid interface like I’ve seen with the Asus Router. I need to have more than just two Ethernet ports, that’s the only reason I need the Router.

Modem should have nothing to do with a screen reader.

If anything, modem compatibility has more to do with your iSP. I’ve got a surfboard 6193 with 16 down channels and 32 up channels. I bought it and have it working with my Spectrum 200 MB down service. This is a really great modem, but it wouldn’t work with AT&T for example. Jaws has nothing to do with it.

I just gave Spectrum its mac adress to ping it and good to go.

Modems are more or less plug and play.

Now, if you’re talking about a router, As long as you can at least access the web interface, then you should be fine. I used to have a TPLink Archer triband AC router, but recently upgraded to an Eero mesh router for better coverage. I access this device through my iPhone though.

Re: Msword 2016 and sounds

OK Nino.  Yes, Robin gave the directions for Office 2016.  But I am using Office 2013 on a Windows 7 machine and I don’t find any “ease of access”.  I have poked around Word 2013, but I don’t find ease of access nor sounds.  I have looked in “general” and “advanced”, but there are 8 other categories.  I had hoped that someone would have the steps for Office 2013.  In 2013 under options I see 10 categories and last night at home and win10 there were 14.  I need help in Windows 7; MS Office 2013; and a 64 bit machine.. II doubt if the 64 bit has anything to do with, but what the hec!  thanks

These sounds are enabled by turning on the Office Sounds.  In Word, go to the File menu, then options.  When the dialog opens, arrow down to the Ease of Access options, then tab over to where all the setting choices are.  The first option is a checkbox to enable the sounds.  Check if this got turned off somehow. 

I just started using this feature and am still not sure what all the sounds mean, but kind of like it.  I will note that, from my little test, I only get the sound if I select some text and then hit delete, but not if I delete character by character.

The point to a password manager is that you don’t’ have to even try to remember all your passwords, but rather one master password.

Another suggestion, which has worked for me over the years, regarding pass words.  It is particularly useful, as older people using these pass word generators might suffer memory problems, as does my elder sister.  Who now has to have her son assist her with the simplest of  being able to access sites.  Which require the use of pass words.  I use a single pass word for all my accessing.  With different prefixes or suffixes.  Particular to the site which I wish to access.  So, should one discover my pass word, it would be most difficult to determine the individual prefix or suffix I have chosen for that site.  If this list required a pass word, for example, I might use my individual pass word, plus the suffix MJfwDS.  The first part being the initials of the list itself, the DS being the initials of the first owner of the officially endorsed list by Freedom Scientific, Debbie Scales.  Who would figure that one out?  Yet, it would be something I would easily remember.  As Debbie Scales performed, for we blind Jaws users, such a fine service.  Seeking and discovering all sorts of free to use programs.  Which were accessible for us blind individuals to utilize.  To make our lives easier.  So we wouldn't have to find them ourselves.

Re: How much is Outlook for the desktop?

Thanks, Brian. I'm very glad to be wrong. The new way is never as good as the old one and I guess that's where I am now. I won't do a little more checking on other clients; I'll do a lot more checking on this one. <grin>

I suggest you do a little more playing with various e-mail clients before making a comment like this one.  Any e-mail client does not come to have the embedded user base that Thunderbird has if it's "really substandard."

There's a ton of tech press material out there about the reasons for "splitting off" Thunderbird from Firefox, which has happened, but its home still remains under the Mozilla organization.  It's far from dying, too, in fact it's picked up steam since this organizational split.

All of the above being said, there are quite a few different e-mail clients out there, but the two that are really commonly used and have good accessibility on a consistent basis have been MS-Outlook and Thunderbird.  If you would still like to use Windows Live Mail 2012 it still works just fine for POP and IMAP mail, and I downloaded the final full installer for Windows Essentials 2012, of which WLM is a part, just before it was pulled from Microsoft's site.  You can download it here ( https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B98uELZbPFnOSF8xTzhfYnh4WUU ) , if you so choose.  It was and remains quite accessible under JAWS and NVDA.  I haven't tried it with Narrator.

These sounds are enabled by turning on the Office Sounds.  In Word, go to the File menu, then options.  When the dialog opens, arrow down to the Ease of Access options, then tab over to where all the setting choices are.  The first option is a checkbox to enable the sounds.  Check if this got turned off somehow. 

I just started using this feature and am still not sure what all the sounds mean, but kind of like it.  I will note that, from my little test, I only get the sound if I select some text and then hit delete, but not if I delete character by character.

Re: accessibil password generators

Angel
 

Another suggestion, which has worked for me over the years, regarding pass words.  It is particularly useful, as older people using these pass word generators might suffer memory problems, as does my elder sister.  Who now has to have her son assist her with the simplest of  being able to access sites.  Which require the use of pass words.  I use a single pass word for all my accessing.  With different prefixes or suffixes.  Particular to the site which I wish to access.  So, should one discover my pass word, it would be most difficult to determine the individual prefix or suffix I have chosen for that site.  If this list required a pass word, for example, I might use my individual pass word, plus the suffix MJfwDS.  The first part being the initials of the list itself, the DS being the initials of the first owner of the officially endorsed list by Freedom Scientific, Debbie Scales.  Who would figure that one out?  Yet, it would be something I would easily remember.  As Debbie Scales performed, for we blind Jaws users, such a fine service.  Seeking and discovering all sorts of free to use programs.  Which were accessible for us blind individuals to utilize.  To make our lives easier.  So we wouldn't have to find them ourselves.
