Hello,


I finally found the Margins sub menu. There is a list of margin types and I assume that I just press ENTER to set it.


The problem is that when I use two Jaws commands to get the left margin setting, I get two different values.


When in the Word document, (before setting margins) and with the cursor at the top left, I use these commands: alt plus numpad dot and the INSERT plus F1.


The first Jaws command gives the left margin as 2.5 inches while the latter command gives a left margin of .5 inche.


If I set the margins to "wide" the left margin should be 2 inches but these commands give it as 2 and 4 inches.


I can't duplicate this. I would reboot and see if that helps. sometimes JAWS looses its perspective in Office after a while. Not just in Excel, although that happens more quickly, but also in Word.



What is happening?

Re: How to change margins using MS Word ribbons?

 

You're going to need someone who has Word 2007.   I haven't had that since around 2011, and just recently went from 2010 to 2016.  Things have changed significantly, and I also avoid the JAWS virtual ribbon feature as it makes actually using the ribbons as they are meant to be used more difficult.

Hi Peter,

With Alt+Q you don't hardly need the ribbons anymore.

Try this:
Alt+Q
Type margins
Then press down arrow to navigate the search results

Hope this helps,

Not that I know of, but now that it's been asked, I am looking into it.
However if you hold that right or left arrow down (as opposed to just
pressing it over and over again) it will rewind or fast forward very quickly
indeed, or at least it should.
To get to something like the end of the track, I usually use the "jump to
time" command. Of course, doing this means you sort of need to at least be
able to estimate when the track ends, or to look at the total time, which is
usually shown in the playlist editor.

Hi all. A little Winamp question...

While playing a track in Winamp, if I want to move it ahead while
playing, I press the right arrow key and it moves it ahead a very little
amount, like 5 or so seconds. Is there some setting where I can make it
move ahead by a greater amount of time, and or, move the pointer as it
were to the end of a song?

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks,

Also, if you are a programmer and use IDES as your programming tool, and if you need a folder source outside of your project to be included, the only way might be to drag that source that you need into your project's window via file explorer and drop it into your project.

In which situations will transferring files and folders between applications not work using copy/paste? Genuinely curious, as that’s how I do it on a daily basis.

James, I have an example, though before I give it I will say that I don't even use drag and drop with sight to do this task, preferring the "New" button option then going out and selecting the files I want via a standard open dialog.

If you are using Google Drive, and create a new folder, in the center of the screen for the empty folder it says, "Drop files here, or use the New button."  You can have File Explorer windows open select files until you're blue in the face and use CTRL+C to copy (or CTRL+X if you intended to cut for a move) but you simply cannot paste on that particular Google Drive dialog.  The only thing that works in that instance is drop.

I can also think of instances where electronic versions of "draw the line from thing in column A to the correct corresponding thing in column B" type tests, that are meant to imitate the paper version of same, only work with drag and drop.  That style has fallen out of favor largely due to accessibility issues with it.

Moving the columns displayed in the inbox (and other folders) in Thunderbird can only be (or at least used to only be, I haven't done this in a while) doable via drag and drop.

Because drag and drop is a fundamental feature of every GUI I've ever used, dropping support for it in any screen reader seems to me to be a very, very ill-thought-out decision.   You may not need to use it often, and I actually use copy/cut and paste way more myself, but there are times when it's the only alternative and, if you're a screen reader user and the screen reader doesn't support it, that cuts accessibility right there.

In which situations will transferring files and folders between applications not work using copy/paste? Genuinely curious, as that’s how I do it on a daily basis.

James, I have an example, though before I give it I will say that I don't even use drag and drop with sight to do this task, preferring the "New" button option then going out and selecting the files I want via a standard open dialog.

If you are using Google Drive, and create a new folder, in the center of the screen for the empty folder it says, "Drop files here, or use the New button."  You can have File Explorer windows open select files until you're blue in the face and use CTRL+C to copy (or CTRL+X if you intended to cut for a move) but you simply cannot paste on that particular Google Drive dialog.  The only thing that works in that instance is drop.

I can also think of instances where electronic versions of "draw the line from thing in column A to the correct corresponding thing in column B" type tests, that are meant to imitate the paper version of same, only work with drag and drop.  That style has fallen out of favor largely due to accessibility issues with it.

Moving the columns displayed in the inbox (and other folders) in Thunderbird can only be (or at least used to only be, I haven't done this in a while) doable via drag and drop.

Because drag and drop is a fundamental feature of every GUI I've ever used, dropping support for it in any screen reader seems to me to be a very, very ill-thought-out decision.   You may not need to use it often, and I actually use copy/cut and paste way more myself, but there are times when it's the only alternative and, if you're a screen reader user and the screen reader doesn't support it, that cuts accessibility right there.

I'd run mb again just to be sure it was able to get rid of the stuff.

Um..possibly yes.

That’s certainly not normal.

Should I be concerned that after running MalwareBytes, the computer is just sitting their after restarting with the word Restarting on the screen?
