[Leasey] Potential Training Course: Microsoft PowerPoint with JAWS for Windows.

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

The following message is from Brian Hartgen and was posted to the Leasey mailing list.






Several weeks ago, we were asked if a training course could be created to teach people how to use Microsoft PowerPoint with JAWS. People not only wanted to learn how to prepare visually appealing PowerPoint presentations, (including adding graphical images), but also how to add music or sound to them, run the presentations as slide shows and add or review Speakers Notes.

 

This training course has now been researched and it is possible this could be produced in January of 2019. Teaching this subject however is very high risk in a number of areas.

 

As blind people managing our small company, we will need to ensure that visual assistance is obtained so as to include visually appealing graphics of the required dimensions. But most importantly, it is our view that the support currently provided in terms of screen-reading with PowerPoint from Office 365 is simply not sufficient for what we need to do. Conveying this subject in easy to understand terms was always going to be tricky, but to do so when the access you will receive in this area has shortcomings is even more problematic.

 

A basic example would be accessing the Speakers Notes. These are notes or reminders to you, the person delivering the presentation, as to what you can say above and beyond what is stated in the slide the audience is viewing. There used to be a keystroke which would allow focus to be set to that area of the screen. This is no longer possible. Moreover, if you are using a Braille display, how are you going to read those notes without disturbing visual focus away from the application? A mechanism for listening to those notes also needs to be found. There are also a large number of other inaccessible areas which need some attention.

 

To that end, as with all our training courses, we would need please a commitment from anyone interested to make the project viable. This would allow for the delivery of the training course together with bringing the existing JAWS support up-to-date.

We have had a small number of people expressing an interest in this subject so far, but whether it goes ahead really does boil down to what kind of commitment we do receive.

 

The training course would be delivered over a four-hour period in January of 2019. It would include details of many aspects of creating presentations in an accessible way, identifying (as far as possible) whether the presentations were visually acceptable, navigating through slides, working with visual themes, using tables and bulleted lists, editing presentations, delivering your presentation to an audience, and more. A full course outline would be presented if the training course goes ahead.

 

If you would like to purchase this training course, please write to brian@.... We will then send to you an invoice for payment. Assuming we have enough committed people to make the course viable, then we will present the details formally on our website with a full course outline. The cost would be £50 which is currently $62. We would ideally need to hear from you by 7 December 2018 because that will give sufficient time for the JAWS scripting work to go ahead prior to the commencement of the training course in 2019.

 

If we do not receive a sufficient response, unfortunately we cannot take this project further because there are many hours of work ahead even before a training course of this magnitude can start to be prepared.

 

We very much look forward to hearing from anyone interested in what could be an interesting venture.

Re: curious about today's update for JAWS 2018

We’re still in 2018. I don’t know what the cut-off point is, but it’s somewhat over a year from the previous JAWS release. It was promised that jAWS 2018 would work with Firefox Quantum; until now it’s been almost-but-not-quite-there, as many people (including me) have been experiencing persistent crashes. I believe they have addressed the issue in this update (I hope so, still testing), thus keeping their promise. I don’t know what else has been fixed, but I suspect this will be close to the last JAWS 2018 update.

People tend to complain about the JAWS company, whatever name it goes by, for their upgrade policies.  (Nobody has done so here at present.) So they have annual upgrades, but still make some efforts to maintain the experience of those who, for whatever reason, don’t or can’t upgrade.  So it is with this upgrade to 2018.

The purpose is to improve the experience for people who are still using Jaws 2018 because they have for some reason not yet upgraded. This could be because they don't have an SMA left and currently can't afford or don't want to buy one or maybe they work at larger organisations where often such updates take longer. One of my best friends in Germany used to work at HP and each time he needed an update he had to go through a big application process to get HP to authorize it.

Hi List,

 

I don’t remember ever getting an update the same month a new version of JAWS has been released. What’s up? Does anyone know the purpose of this update? In other words, what did it fix?

JAWS Tablet Compatibility

Kolby
 

Hello,
I am looking to purchase a tablet computer to replace my old iPad. I would like to use something that comes with a keyboard if possible but also am curious as to how people are finding using JAWS with tablets without keyboards. I would like to know which tablets work best with JAWS 2019 and what technical specifications I should be looking for the device to have for the fastest performance.
Thank you,
Kolby

If you use Brian Hartgen's Leasey program there is a slightly quicker way to unprotect a Word document.

1. From within the Word document press the Leasey key, which is usually the grave accent key.

2. Next, press shift-ctrl-U, which will unprotect the document if it is protected.

Try again, and if you have any sort of blockers running you might want 
to disable them first.  This is a direct link to an MS-Word document 
that should, when activated, immediately cause a Save dialog to pop up 
so that you can choose where you wish to save the file on your machine.

It's been accessed hundreds of times since I put it up, and when I click 
through on it in a browser where I am not logged in with the Google

Save dialog.

Hi everyone. I am a Teacher for the Visually Impaired. My student will

LoggerPro. Previously Windows-Eyes made a special script that made this
program accessible but I'm not sure if this is still available. Does
anyone else have experience using the software LoggerPro with JAWS or

My experience has been that if the update doesn't install, I can download the full version from the web site and that install will work. I sometimes get a message telling me to run a JAWS repair when the update doesn't work. I have done that, but it doesn't help. So I just go download the whole stinkin' thing.

Hi Mario,

 

I don't have a clue!  Maybe call FS tech support.  Are you getting any error codes  / messages?  I just updated 4 computers, 2 Windows 10 and 2 Windows 7 without a problem.

Take care.  Go Rams!

The editing within a cell should *not be checked.

Hi!

In Excel 2016 using JAWS 2019, if I am on a cell with text in it I used
to be able in earlier versions of Excel and JAWS to press F2 and
navigate and edit such text like if I were in a normal text document,
such as MS Word. Now, with JAWS 2019 and Excel 2016 when I try this
nothing seems to happen. It seems like I do not go into edit mode.

I have checked the Excel option to allow editing directly within a
cell. Likewise, I have unchecked the Excel option to auto complete
formulas.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there some solution?

Thanks,
Richard


Re: Question: Can JAWS Reverse Items Being Reported, as in "not checked, check box" instead of "check box, not checked"

Mike, I also thank you for this.  I was always wondering how to get JAWS to stop saying Table Start Nesting Levels in email messages.
Love in Christ

Hi David,
 
Yes, you can.  Personally I find this settings change to work better by changing this setting per application instead of in the Settings Center default all applications.  Try the following:
1. Open the Settings Center, Insert / Jaws key + 6, on the number row and if you want to open Settings Center default all applications, press, Control, Shift + D, after opening the Settings Center.
2. Arrow down to, Text Processing closed, right arrow to open, arrow down to, General closed, and right arrow to open.
3. In here you have 17 items, your are interested in items 14, 15 and 16, depending on what you want to do.  When you get to these items tab 1 time to get a description of what the particular setting does.  For what you want, you would want to check number 16, Say Window State First, then tab to Okay, press enter to save and close.
Note:  Sometimes these settings changes don't work as advertised.
Take care.  Go Rams!

I thought JAWS had an option to reverse or change the order of items, such as whether you want to hear the control state first, as in "not checked, item, check box." I believe Window-eyes contained this feature and I thought that JAWS did as well but I can't seem to locate it in Settings Center.
