Re: Navigating Entries In An E-mail Group List

 

As a quick follow-up, this appears to be an issue of very longstanding.  There has been an issue open for NVDA (which describes exactly the same issue that's reported here, and actually includes a note that it happens under JAWS, too), that was opened all the way back in 2012.

This has been haunting screen readers through multiple Outlook versions going as far back as Outlook 2007.

Re: changing a file extension

 

I assume these  instructions should work except for the part where they talk about playing the new ringtone and that this would move it to the tones folder or something like that and that you then have to simply sync your iPhone in order to transfer it.

In the current version of iTunes you would have to copy the song to the clipboard (I am talking about Windows), then connect  your iPhone to the computer and in iTunes open the iPhone section. Now in the treeview go to Tones, then tab into the Tones list and simply paste the song here with Control+V, it will instantly and automatically sync to your phone.

Re: Navigating Entries In An E-mail Group List

 

I wonder if there is a bug in Outlook 2016, or possibly JAWS (and NVDA, too).

When I open a Contact Group, whether with a screen reader on or not, I can easily navigate through each and every member with the up and down arrow buttons.  The difference being that the screen reader is not tracking that movement up and down through the list at all corresponding to where Outlook itself has focus at that moment, which is odd.

I cannot imagine this behavior is intentional, and since it's occurring in NVDA, and it sounds like the same thing is happening in JAWS, I wonder if Outlook 2016 is somehow not exposing the fact that you've changed focus from one row/member to another in the list of members of a Contact Group.

If it is in m4a format and is less than 40 seconds in length, you could change the extension to m4r.
If it is any other format, you will have to use conversion software.
Do a web search for whatever format it is to m4a.
I do not know if you can still change things within iTunes.

Thanks, Dan.

 

The list I’m working with has about 50 members, and I can’t navigate through the entire thing via the Jaws cursor.

 

It used to be so easy when I could use the PC cursor and the arrow keys.

I used to be able to arrow down through the list with no problem, but that has changed with Outlook 2016 and the last few Jaws updates.

 

I can still use my Jaws cursor, but navigation is a bit awkward, and I can’t cover the entire list that way.

Re: Using jaws on mark book pro

Palmer Loux
 

The primary issues is with the Mac laptop keyboard which does not have bumped numlockand insert keys like you are used to in a Windows laptop
Yes a MacBook Pro can be bootcamped with a Windows OS but you will not be happy with the Mac keyboard layout if you are used to JAWS proficiency in Windows laptop
Yes you can designate Caps Lock as the JAWS key in Options basics but you will give up some nice keys and windows commands..

Brian:

 

Right now, when I arrow up or down through an e-mail group list, nothing happens;  in other words, none of the information for any of the group members is spoken.

 

I have made sure my screen is maximized.

 

I can get information for some of the group members by using my Jaws cursor, but I can only view part of the list that way.

 

I’d like to be able to arrow up and down through the group member list like I used to do with earlier versions of Windows, Jaws, and Outlook.

 

I have Outlook set up in the usual way with the folder pane set to normal, and the reading pane set to off.

 

I access my contacts via the control shift B. command.

 

I hope this helps.

Tom,

            I believe you'll have to be more specific about what's actually happening (which clearly you don't want) and what you'd like to be happening instead.   It would also help to know how you have Outlook set up as far as conversation view goes and/or whether your various e-mail lists have their respective messages filtered into folders other than inbox, and whether you're viewing from those folders.

Re: How to change margins using MS Word ribbons?

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?

Oddly, only custom margins shows top and bottom, as well as left and right. But setting margins to narrow, adjusts both sides and top and bottom, even though it doesn't indicate it is going to do that. Check with insert+f1 for margin settings.

I should have mentioned that I have Word 2007 with the latest version of Jaws 2019 with the virtual ribbon feature turned on.


Perhaps the alt+q works with a more recent version then with the Word 2007 that I have.


Brian suggested:

         ALT+P,M (Layout Ribbon, Margins option)


The alt+p gives me:

   virtual ribbons, page layout tab


Pressing "m" gives me:

  lower ribbon, create submenu


From here I tried tabbing and arrowing down, left, right and up.

I can't find a layout ribbon.

Nothing was heard that might lead to a path to margins.

Any more suggestions on where to navigate from alt+p?

       You can then down arrow through a variety of common margin settings to select from OR if you want custom margins, Hit A, which brings up the Page Layout dialog with the Margins Tab selected and open. The various fields in the Margins tab are self explanatory (except, perhaps for Gutter, which I never change).
