Hi All,

I am trying to help out a friend who has just started using JAWS 2019 on a laptop with laptop keyboard layout and with Office 2016, and I have a few questions they have asked which I couldn't find the answer to.  I hope you do not mind me posting here.
  1. Can you get the non editable text on dialog boxes to be spelled out as well as read?
  2. Can you get JAWS to tell you what colour a shaded cell is in Excel ?
  3. We cannot get an email group to read out the individual contacts within Outlook when created.  If the group is opened and you arrow down through each contact JAWS is silent.  I.e. a group called "work" with four individual members of the group.
  4. Is there an easy way of reading tables within Word?

Thank you in advance.
Clare

G-Mail: Move An Email to a Label

Hello, everyone.
I have created a label (folder) in g-mail so I can keep the JFW
digests. Does anyone know how to do this? I did it one time for
another label that I created, but it is not working for my JFW
digests. Thanks for any help.

Hi Zel,
 
Highlight / select the desktop icon but, do not press enter.  With the desktop icon highlighted press the, F2 key.  Pressing the, F2 key, puts you in edit mode.  Now edit / rename the icon and when finished press, Enter, to save the change.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!

this happens most of the time because the installation will overwrite the old
icon.
try renameing the icon before you do the installation.  like change it to
1jaws.
then after it is installed check that the old shortcut from the old icon is
still working. then delete the new icon and rename the old one back.

Hello group:

It appears that the periodic Jaws updates erase a couple of my keyboard
shortcuts when downloaded and installed while leaving others intact.

Does anyone know why this happens, and how to guard against a recurrance
with future update releases?

Insert 2 toggles through the four options (characters, words, characters and words, none), but is temporary. For a permanent change:

  1. While in Word, hit Insert 6 to get to setting center.

Re: Can you fill down a series in Excel?

Mario
 

Sally, not knowing which version of Excel (but I don't think it really
matters), try this:

start by typing 1 for cell a1, 2 in a2, and 3 in a3.
then select the cells you want to have the auto fill done, e.g. a1 thru
a10. then you can tell it to auto fill by pressing alt, h, f, i, s.
Shift+Tab to where it says linear and then press up arrow to auto fill
and press enter.

if you want to auto fill in a row, start by typing 1 in a1, 2 in b1, and
3 in c1. select the cells to auto fill, a1 thru j1. press alt, h, f, i,
s, shift tab to linear and up arrow to auto fill, shift tab and up arrow
to row, and press enter.

alternately, strings can be typed instead of numbers in the first 3
cells, monday in a1, tuesday in a2, wednesday in a3, and follow the
steps above.

In Microsoft Excel, is there a keyboard command to fill down a series,
such as day of the week or month? I am not talking about filling down a
formula using control D or control R.

That works for formulas, but is not working for a series, such as
January, February, March. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

There are some folks on another mailing list saying that they’ve been experiencing serious troubles with jaws 2019.1904 and windows 10.  They say the problems started after the last couple of windows updates, particularly the update released on may 3.

Among the problems, they remark jaws not reading clipboard history, jaws not reading properly   windows 10 settings, and sluggishness of the screen reader, specially when typing.

 

As far as I recall, I don’t remember no one here reporting those problems, but I could be wrong.  However, I use jaws 2019.1904, and I installed those same windows updates but everything went smooth sailing for me after that.

 

Does anyone here know something about it?

                Every Friday morning the traffic reporter on channel 2 KTVU, Sal Castinada, selects a particular musical theme, such as songs by a particular artist, band, or just a theme, and asks everybody using social media to submit their requests.  I use Facebook.  Using JAWS I have located Facebook then KTVU’s Facebook page, but then I have never been able to submit a request because I don’t know where to look.  After locating the Facebook page I have used JAWS to search for such things as Request and for Sal.  I have even located Sal Castinada’s Facebook page, then sent him a personal message, but have a feeling this is not getting anywhere.  Can any of you local people who are up at this hour of the morning try to locate KTVU’s Facebook page, then tell me what to do from there?

Hi Rick,

 

Try this:

1.            Press Alt R then t followed by d.

2.            Use the up/down arrow keys to find the ‘All markup’ option, then press enter or escape.

 

3.            You should then be back in the main document.

4.            Press Shift, Control and Apostrophe simultaneously and use your up/down arrows to read the comments. Pressing escape or tabbing to ‘Ok’ should put the focus on where the comment is but you may have to go up and down with the arrow keys to get Jaws to read both the text and comment.

Hi all,

 

I have a Microsoft Word document that is being reviewed with comments added by all parties. I receive this as an attachment and for example, arrowing down, I hit the date line upon the cover page. It tells me comment and the initials of the individual commenting and the number of the comment within the document. For example, Jaws says comment abc1 then the date. Another example is within the table of contents, #10 for example is blah blah blah on page blah blah blah. The beginning of this line, Jaws says comment abc2 then the title of this section and the page number that it is on/in..

 

How do I find the comments? There is obviously something hidden, the said comment, but how to get jaws to read the comment? Hitting enter does not read it nor is anything seen upon the document, visually that is.

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Rick
