Removing break lines in Excel

Wideman, Donna J
 

Hello All,
I have a file in Excel and when I open it I click next to go through the process of importing it.
I know that this step is where I can remove break lines and put in the desired break lines for my needs, but do not know how to make Jaws read it.
Can anyone help?
Thanks
Donna

Hi bill,
That works in Microsoft Word but not in Notepad, at least not on my Windows 7 computer at work! Perhaps it does under Windows 10.
In Notepad it is a real pain because there doesn't seem to be a way of typing a formfeed character directly, even though you can copy/paste them in or have some other program put them in for you. The solution, as far as I can find, is to manually find an instance of a formfeed character (hard page break, if you like), copy it to the clipboard, and then paste it into the "Find" box of the "Find/Replace" dialog. Leave the "Replace" field blank as Bill has already said.
Soft page breaks cannot be removed by their very nature. However, if they are caused by excessive line breaks, you can delete those. There isn't, as far as I know, a way of automating that process in Notepad though.
Where are you copying/pasting from? If Word, you might have better results removing all this white space in Word, following the instructions that Bill gave, and then copying/pasting the cleaned up text.
Matthew

Hi, Sharon. To remove special characters with the Find/Replace in Notepad:

for page breaks type ^p in the Find box; for paragraph breaks use ^m

The Caret is the number six on the numbers row with the Shift key.

In the Replace box don't type anything. Then TAB and click Replace All to remove all page or paragraph breaks

Re: JAWS Scripts - Are they interpreted or compiled?

Matthew Horspool
 

Hi Isaac,

I'm afraid I'm not convinced that this is necessary or even appropriate. Freedom Scientific scripts could change at any time, even from minor JAWS version to minor JAWS version. If you restore from a personal backup of the Freedom Scientific stock scripts you could well end up restoring an earlier version which re-introduces problems which have subsequently been fixed.

A JAWS repair is a perfectly adequate way of restoring stock scripts if they do go missing somehow. If you're particularly paranoid you could keep a backup copy of the JAWS installer.

Back up your user scripts folder, because this is where script files you modify are saved to, so that they do not become mixed with the scripts Freedom Scientific provides. The location of your user scripts folder is the one I provided in step 4 of Part a of my instructions.

Re: Jaws 18 and jaws 2018 Facebook

Matthew Horspool
 

Hi Addison,

You should be able to extract my email address from any correspondence I send to the list. I don't go out of my way to hide it.

However, as I say, please understand that I have relatively outdated Facebook knowledge and do not always have time to deal with emails in an efficient manner. I reply to threads on these lists when I have time on the basis that, if I'm half way through solving a problem but don't have time to finish the job for some reason, someone else can pick up where I left off. The same can't be said if you email me personally. I cannot, of course, prevent you from doing so and I will certainly not go out of my way not to reply, but I cannot offer you any guarantee that you will receive a response in a timely fashion or even that I will be able to help at all.

For this reason I would strongly advise that you continue to ask your questions on-list. You will have a much greater chance of receiving a relevant and timely reply that way. If you are in particular need of 1:1 support, I would encourage you to make use of people who are paid to do that sort of job, e.g. Freedom Scientific, Microsoft or Facebook technical support departments.

Best wishes,

Matthew

Hi Addison,

M Facebook is generally less cluttered, which is why I suspect FS tech support encourage its use. Regular Facebook is still perfectly accessible, though.

As I say, I'm hardly a Facebook expert so I'm not sure what support I would be able to offer you off-list that others can't do better on-list.

Hello Addison,

I am not a Facebook expert so I did not jump into this thread straight away, thinking that perhaps someone else might have a more thorough answer. But yes, the regular facebook.com website is accessible with JAWS.

There shouldn't be any difference in notifications between regular Facebook and M Facebook, as far as I know. You will not get notified every time somebody posts as this is the purpose of the news feed.

I hope I have understood your questions correctly. I wouldn't usually point it out, but since you bring it up, your messages don't contain very much punctuation and the wording is not very clear, so it does take quite a while for me to process what you've said and then even longer to interpret it. If you could perhaps insert a few more full stops it might make things a little easier.

Best wishes,

Matthew

Those instructions are incorrect. You should never modify default.jss

designed for you to create or modify JAWS behavior.

What you need to do is this:

Part A: Check your default.jss and default.jsb file

2. See if your punctuation script is in the file. If it is, keep

4. Check before using JAWS that this folder is completely empty:
C:\Users\[YourUserDirectory]\AppData\Roaming\Freedom

Part B: Adding your punctuation script
1. Open Script Manager.
2. Press CTRL+O to open the Open dialog.

Under 2018, the script could be run from anywhere on the system but
since

Re: JAWS Scripts - Are they interpreted or compiled?

Isaac <bigikemusic@...>
 

also to add to what you just said, after a new install copy the default scripts folder some place else so you have a backup so in the future if you are modifying scripts you don't have to uninstall jaws and reinstall as there might be other scripts you have modified and would lose. The point is hear, backup, backup, backup. Always backup.

Those instructions are incorrect. You should never modify default.jss

What you need to do is this:

Part A: Check your default.jss and default.jsb file

Re: JAWS Scripts - Are they interpreted or compiled?

its posible but you will have to load them up in
to the script manager and press ctrl plus s to
recompile them. its also posible that some of the
functions may not work without some editing.

Hi Mario,

Ah, yes, I see. It's been quite a while since I've done any significant
tinkering under the hood. I do know that some restructuring of settings
went on not so long ago but I don't know the details. You could probably
work them out, though, just by having a browse through your user
settings folder and, if that fails, the shared settings folder.

Is this the extent of your trouble or are there more serious issues
going on? I would say it should be OK to continue this thread on list as
there may be others with this problem, but if a mod feels differently I
will go with that.

Matthew

Hi,



A few points to answer here:



1. To compile a script: as others have said, CTRL+S is the magic
keystroke. However, you need to be in the script manager to do this! To
get to the Script Manager, press JAWSKey+0. If you do this from within
the application for which the script was written and a JSS file for that
application is present in the user's settings directory, the correct
file should be loaded automatically. Simply ALT+F4 out of the Script
Manager after you receive the compiler success message.

2. Usually, the JSB (JAWS Script Binary) ends up in the same
place as the JSS (JAWS Script Source). The same does not always apply,
however, for JSD (JAWS Script Documentation), JSH (JAWS Script Header),
JSM (JAWS Script Messages), JKM (JAWS Key Map), JCF (JAWS Configuration
File), JDF (JAWS Dictionary File) and so on. This is because a file only
ends up in the user's settings directory if it is changed from the
default or otherwise put there. Usually a new JSB is created because the
JSS has been modified, so both files end up in the user directory even
when modifying stock scripts. However, if you are only modifying
existing scripts and the documentation, keymap, etc has not required an
update, the JSD file may never make it across.

3. Save without compile is useful if something has gone wrong in
your code which is causing the compiler to throw an error and you can't
figure out what. In such a case, you may wish to sleep on the problem
and come back to it next day.



HTH,



Matthew

Having Problems With Auto-complete Addresses In Outlook 2016

Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.

 

On my new Windows 10 computer, I am having trouble getting Outlook 2016 to consistently auto-complete addresses.

 

I recall a recent thread on this issue, but don’t know if it ever got resolved.

 

I am currently using the latest build of Jaws 2018 on this new computer, due to the problems we are having with Jaws 2019.
