Re: Loosing Shortcuts For Microsoft Word And Excel In Office 365

 

Hi Tom,

 

Not sure why this is happening, but you could try to simply put the shortcuts in the taskbar, in Windows 7 as well as Windows 10 you can access any application in the taskbar by pressing the Windows Key + the number corresponding to the application's position in the taskbar.

For example, if you have the following applications in your taskbar from left to write:

Google Chrome, Outlook, Excel, Word, Skype and Notepad

press the following keyboard shortcuts:

Windows Key + 1 for Google Chrome

Windows Key + 2 for Outlook

Windows Key + 3 for Excel

Windows Key + 4 for Word

Windows Key + 5 for Skype

Windows Key + 6 for Notepad

 

You can put up to 10 applications there and use 1 through 0 together with the Windows Key to access them, also, if you press Windows Key + Alt + 3 which in my example is for Excel you are bringing up the jumplist for the application and you can then arrow up or down to see the most recently used files.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Re: JAWS not reading dialogs in Goldwave

Maybe someone could create a mailing list for those who want to discuss other's income streams. Nope, it isn't going to be me, I don't want to have ridiculous, pointless debates that go nowhere. If someone actually does though, maybe a list for discussing income streams, and finance in general, would be a good idea.

Folks,

It would appear that somewhere along the way we seem to have lost the plot. Ordinarily that in and of itself wouldn't be quite a problem, as you guys are usually pretty good at letting things die down naturally. However, this weekend's rather intense conversations have lead to not one, but I count currently at least 3 active and on-going threads that have left the actual original topic of discussion crying in the corner. Since that's not what this list is here for, I will be going through and closing those threads starting in the next 2 minutes. I would encourage the instigators in the group (you know who you are and so do I) not to take that as an invitation to reopen them. Let's attempt to get back on course, shall we? This is a JAWS list. If you want to discuss the practicality, ethics or worthyness of one man's particular income stream, do it privately.

Also, let's try and be mindful of rule 5 going forward. People get moderated when things get personal. Leet's maybe not get personal. Thanks, and remember, we've all got opinions. There's as much room for theirs as there is for yours. ... Except those Apple dorks. Those guys are just weird.

Jaws made accessible a new job opportunity: stenographer.

Daniele Casarola
 

Hi!
Together with Jaws developer we made accessible a job that it wasn't before: I mean to be a stenographer.

Basically it means to listen and transcribe, which is used for Court reporting, realtime subtitling, any situation where you have to type really really fast, as fast as a person speaks.
In the bast there was not audio feedback of what a stenographer types. Now a Jaws plugin allows it.

For those who are interested in deepening the subject I've made a simple video which explain broadly.:

Hope it can help somebody as it helped me.

locked Re: The waist of things, not including JAWS

David & his pack of dogs
 

The garbage dump here has a free store where you can pick up things for free the only provision is it must not look horrible. I picked up a 30-channel equalizer there. They have a lot of stuff that if you want to you could practically furnish your place with. Unfortunately they do not take computers. I say unfortunately because it goes to the bottle depot which takes not just returnables also TVS and other electronics. Why is it unfortunate? Because they by law have to dispose of them. Some are pretty much brand new according to a former manager of the bottle depot. Businesses such as government agencies get the latest and greatest and have to dispose of their older models. It is a real shame the waist of good products that goes on in North America. Mind you, on an Australian list someone got a iPhone X for Christmas of this year and by Feb. they were trying to sell it. Me, I use something till it smokes accept JAWS.

I don't think anyone is saying that. Dumpster diving doesn't necessarily mean hiding behind a restaurant waiting for a pizza to be thrown out. I have talked to a person who had normal sight and a good job who would go through dumpsters in industrial parks looking for discarded items. Now my understanding is companies don't throw away normal trash. This guy, and people doing the same thing, look for quite valuable items such as electronics, book shelves, tables. He told me that a lot of these items need little or no repair. He told me you would be surprised what these companies would throw away. He told me that one time he had found a set of track lights that he sold for over a thousand dollars. Now Ipersonally don't intend to go out and partisapate in this activety, but if there are people who do then more power to them. Maybe it is kind like a hobby or something. It would be fun to do research on this activety and see just what a person could do though.

Hi David,

If I put my pop cans or anything which I can collect money on if I bring it to the recycling centre into my recycling bin which is picked up and where I get nothing for it then it is not steeling if somebody picks out said pop cans. It is no different than if I threw the cans into the trash and somebody came by to pick them out (essentially dumpster diving). If I collect my cans in my carport in a bin so I can take them to the recycling centre once a month and somebody comes on my property and goes under my carport to grab those cans then that is steeling and, of course, trespassing.

I found the message James was referring too. When my brother lived with us before I got married, I would get reports of him going into people's recycling box that they had put out on the curb to be picked up by the municipality and taking out the empty pop cans or beer cans . Then he would take them to a store and cash them in for money. This is how he would supplement his income. To me this is steeling. Now, having said this, we run dogs on a trail and frequently find the same things, empties. We cash them in, however, to us it is just cleaning up the environment. Especially when the amount we cashed in could not even pay for a 32 G, SD card. There was someone that would go to beaches on weekends and clean them up. She made enough money doing this each year that she could go to Hawaii every year.

Hello again everyone,

Truthfully we've suggested a number of different ideas to different blind individuals for generating needed income to cover the cost of technologhy Some of these included dumpster diving,becoming certified Braille transcribers and proofreaders along with other ideas. Before writing this note I sent a message to an old schoolfriend of mine who has written a number of books one of which is in audio format. He said that his audio version sold out and he no longer had copies on CD but could provide them in MP3 format. I suggested making his book available through Audible allowing many others to buy it in an audio format and adding an additional source of passive income to his portfolio. That has as much to do with network marketing as this list! All the best.
