Re: "Fast Startup" sound akin to Startup Sound, could we get one?

Jeremy <jeremy.richards7@...>
 

Hi all,

 

Because this issue of a startup sound is of great concern to many people on these blindness related lists, all opinions will be given quite a bit of scrutiny, so here goes my opinion. J

 

One doesn’t really need any sort of confirmation the computer has shut down since one can hear the computer fans and alike no longer spinning, not to mention closing the lid will also insure a laptop is in sleep mode or shut down. One can also tap the keyboard to insure the computer has actually gone into shut down mode. It has not been a problem for me at all, and I’ve been using Windows 10 since day one on my very quiet laptop. I do admit that this issue did bother me at first, and I did all the crazy stuff many have tried including registry hacks that never did work or that Microsoft disabled upon next operating system upgrade.

 

The following utility did work very, very well and is 100% accessible. This utility will let you know when your computer is turning on and when it is shutting down—it says using the Narrator voice “hello” and “goodbye.” I originally installed it to play a short beep every hour on the hour as well as for automatically maximizing all Windows. This utility has lots of great features, and it is incredibly stable. I believe the software developer is a fellow blind person but nevertheless a very talented programmer. I should also add that I’m using this utility while my laptop is on fast startup.

While this is not directly JAWS related, the issue of lack of a "coming back from being shut down when using Fast Startup" sound, as well as the lack of the good, old-fashioned shutdown sound, under Windows 10 comes up repeatedly on virtually every screen reader related group I'm participating in.  

I have just created feedback related to both, and here's the click-through link to the Windows 10 Feedback Hub for it (which, of course, only works for Windows 10 users):

Alan,

Thanks for taking the time to post such a great solution. I just made this
very simple modification within Excel, and it works like a charm!

Thank you for posting this information, and thanks goes out to Brandon or

Hello,

Here are some notes I saved from Branden a while back which fixed this
problem for me.

Excel problem
One issue we have encountered recently is with Editing text in Excel.
This has generated some helpful discussion and testing by users of GitHub,
and the NVDA e-mail group. For some Excel users, when pressing F2 to edit a
cell, NVDA announces "Unknown". It then won't read any text in that cell.
This seems to have started after a recent update from Microsoft. The
workaround that seems to fix the issue for most users, is to uncheck "Allow
editing directly in cells". Not everyone is experiencing this, but if you
are, you can change this setting by doing the following:
1. Have Excel open.
2. Press "alt+f" to open the file menu then press "t" for the options.
3. Press "control+tab" until the focus is on the "Advanced" options page.
4. Press "alt+e" to toggle the "Allow editing directly in cells"
option. Ensure that this is unchecked.
5. Press "enter" to save the changes. Editing cell contents should now work
again.
Note that in turning this setting off, does change things slightly for
visual users:
. With editing directly in cells enabled, when F2 is pressed, the caret
appears in the cell itself. Text which would flow out of the cell flows to
the right, then to lines below. Cells covered by this text are hidden while
this happens. Text in the edited cell is coloured to highlight cell
references and parenthesis.
. With editing directly in cells disabled, when F2 is pressed, the caret
appears in the formula bar above the worksheet. Colouring of formula
elements is also done in the formula bar rather than the cell while editing.
Only text which fits in the cell is visible in the cell while the formula is
being edited.

I hope this helps,

Brandon

Hi all,

I hope others have different results, but I'm still experiencing the problem
of JAWS not being able to read text in cells within Excel when I press F2.

I have discovered that if I type 8 characters or less, I can press F2 and
arrow through the letters and make my edits. If the cell contains a word or
words with more than 8 characters, and if I press F2, JAWS cannot read the
text inside the cell. It appears it's the number of characters in a cell
that trips up JAWS.

Hmm, for whatever reason it seems as though VFO is struggling to fix this
problem since it has existed for quite a bit of time and different versions

I don’t know if this is the cause of your issue, but it may be worth looking at.
When I was still able to use ZoomText I learned that unless I expanded the width of a column I couldn’t see all the characters in the cell.
Expanding that column would reveal that text I KNEW was there.

The indication that a location has or has not been assigned its GPS is indicated with a Check Box.

I am using Jaws 2018 with the update from Yesterday.

This was happening before the latest update, but it is pretty annoying and slows things down.

There is a program we use for time tracking. In this program is a table of locations that employees clock in and out of. Each job can be GPS’ed to make sure the employee is where he said he was.

The indication that a location has or has not been assigned its GPS is indicated with a Check Box.

Here is the speech history when I arrow down the table of locations.

row 60 Read Only
Checked
row 61 Read Only
Checked
row 62 Read Only
Checked
row 63 Read Only
Unchecked

 

It would be nicer and a bit faster to cut a few words out of this feedback. In particular the phrase Read Only.

Is there a way to stop Jaws from saying this?

Thanks

Shannon

What about CrashPlan? It's 1.5 times the price of an annual one-terabyte Dropbox plan, but has no limits. Or none that I've been able to find.

Hey guys. So speaking of backup software, got something i wanna do.
I ahve a feeling it won't be easy.
I do a lot of work with audio and have several tb of audio, including audio projects that i can't lose. Looking for a good place to put them for safe keeping. It includes a lot of audio music beds and stuff, not for distrobution, just for safe keeping. Any ideas for a good solution for this. I've got about 8 TB worth of stuff. I know, not an easy task.

Re: JAWS and Excel - problem reading cells still exists

Kevin Meyers <kevinmeyers@...>
 

When I press F2 on a particular cell, Jaws will read everything in that
cell. Yet some of the cells I cannot arrow character by character. Has
anyone heard of this problem?

Subject: JAWS and Excel - problem reading cells still exists

Hi all,

I hope others have different results, but I'm still experiencing the problem
of JAWS not being able to read text in cells within Excel when I press F2.

I have discovered that if I type 8 characters or less, I can press F2 and
arrow through the letters and make my edits. If the cell contains a word or
words with more than 8 characters, and if I press F2, JAWS cannot read the
text inside the cell. It appears it's the number of characters in a cell
that trips up JAWS.

Hmm, for whatever reason it seems as though VFO is struggling to fix this
problem since it has existed for quite a bit of time and different versions
of JAWS.

JR,
While my problem is slightly different, it also was still not fixed. Mine
can't read cell formulas with references to other cells. I notified VFO
that my incident has still not been fixed and they indicated the incident #
would be upgraded again for another look. I provided them large amounts of
doc a couple of months ago. I sure hope they get it this time as it causes
me quite a bit of difficulty working around it.
