Excel: unable to edit a cell using f2

Ann Byrne
 

Office 2016, JAWS 2018.180.10 and 2019, windows 10 build 1803.

Pressing f2 to edit a cell, I can hear the cell content but cannot navigate using the arrow keys. Is there a setting to make this possible?
Thanks,

That is because the webmaster did not use an "alt tag" on the pictures/grapfics. Those are usually the path to the graphic file. Quite annoying.

Paste Special in Word 2016

John J. Fioravanti, Jr.
 

Hi: I'm using word 2016 and Jaws 2018. Recently, I noticed that there doesn't appear to be a paste special in word any more. I hit alt+h and down arrow to paste, then I use alt+downarrow and there are options like kept text only, but not paste special.

Any suggestions?

Why does JAWS read endless strings of numbers on websites? #cal-notice #excel #advisory

Marty Hutchings
 

I have noticed this for a while now with older through the new versions of JAWS that while reading through various websites, especially news sites with lots of ads that JAWS will get stuck reading these endless strings of numbers and symbols or what seems like code.  They usually start with "http://... as if it is a URL for another site.  If there a setting in verbosity that will limit or skip these anoyances?


Reporting Issues with JAWS to Vispero Technical Support

 

I know that there are a great many seasoned JAWS users here who have the art of trouble reporting to Vispero (formerly VFO, formerly Freedom Scientific) perfected.  I also know that there are a great many new JAWS users who are reading at any given time who have no idea how to do so.  I have two current clients where we have been encountering bugs with JAWS who had absolutely no idea of how to report these to Vispero.  So, this evening I put together a brief "how to" document for those clients, and I thought I'd share that here in case someone else might find it useful.
----------------------------------

Reporting Issues with JAWS to Vispero (formerly VFO, formerly Freedom Scientific) Technical Support

As of this date, 10/19/2018, the e-mail address for Vispero Technical Support is Support@....  I personally prefer to use this method if I have to report a lot of specific steps to reproduce a problem.  I compose the e-mail as I take each step, adding them as I go along, so that I forget nothing.


They can also be reached by phone at (727) 803-8600, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 AM and 9:00 PM Eastern time.  I have found the phone support reps to be very helpful, particularly if you have a problem that’s time critical and that you need to get a fix or workaround for as soon as possible.


Things to remember with regard to working with technical support:

1.       It is impossible to fix something that cannot be reproduced.  Some issues are intermittent, and support will realize this, but if you are able to give the specific steps to make something happen that’s “the gold standard” of trouble reporting.

2.       If the issue is with behavior on a specific webpage, and that webpage does not require login credentials or otherwise have private information (e.g., certain Google Drive pages that are shared with you), please supply the web address of the page as part of the report.

3.      If you are having problems finding something using JAWS find that either:

a.      A sighted assistant is telling you that they can actually see on a page.

b.      You can find if you do brute force tabbing around a page.

definitely report this.  This is particularly critical on webpages where any object, whether a link, button, etc., etc., that is present is not being recognized by a JAWS find.

4.      If the issue is occurring with a specific program, identify the program as well as the version, e.g, Word 2013, Chrome 69.0.3497.100, etc.  In addition, please include the version of JAWS and Windows you’re working with.


You are helping not only yourself, but a huge number of other JAWS users by taking the time to submit reports, whether by e-mail or phone call.  The folks at Vispero cannot fix issues they are not aware of, and any really complex piece of software like JAWS will have issues that “flew under the radar” during testing.

Hi, there’s actually a 2 minute update interval built-in. You can set this for longer, but probably not much shorter. It’s in the global settings, which can be found under applications.


Re: What Are People Using For Twitter

Maybe it’s just because I’m not used to the interface, but I generally dislike Open Tween. I did download it when Twitter made it’s first batch of API changes. That being said everything has it’s advantages and disadvantages, and everyone’s preferences are different.

You can always press Alt F from the message list, and down arrow to Save Attachments.
This will bring up a dialog asking you to specify a folder into which you wish to save the attachment.
Alternatively, I have found that when you open the message, you may need to press Shift Tab more than once, but you should get to the attachment, and Jaws instructs you to press down arrow for the attachment options, among these are Preview and Open.
Hope this helps

Hi!

TW Blue is still working great for me. The only difference is that you have to update the buffer to have more tweets come in!

I like that, because I did not like hundreds of tweets flying in all of the time, now, I can control when new tweets come into the buffer, by just updating the buffer.

Make sure you have the latest version of TW Blue!
