If you use save-as for the new sheets, it works.

Hi Sieghard,

I’m not able to set this up by defining a name on a worksheet and then copying that sheet multiple times. Even if I set the scope to the worksheet rather than the workbook, Jaws doesn’t read column or row headings on the next sheets.

What you want can be done easily manually by first creating copies of your first sheet 31 times, one sheet for each day of the month. Then, place your cursor in the cell of the first sheet where you want to define the name, press the applications key, up arrow to “Define name…â€� and press enter. Type “Titleâ€�� if you wish both column and row headings to be read by Jaws and press enter. Now, move to sheet two and do the same, except this time type “Title2â€� as the name. Continue doing this on subsequent sheets, each time increasing the number after “Titleâ€�. Note that there is no space between “Titleâ€� and the number.

Not sure if this helps or if you wanted a more automatic method, but I can’t seem to do it any other way. I even tried grouping the sheets and then defining a name, but this doesn’t work.

Pardon my error, that last technique is the "when I only want it during this session" method with JAWS. This is how to set them in the spreadsheet itself such that JAWS will recognize their existence and announce them whenever you open a specific spreadsheet:

Assigning a Title Row (Column Titles) and/or Title Column (Row Titles) in Excel

You can assign column and row titles in Excel. These are nice because they always work with Excel and are saved to the workbook. There's no risk of losing a setting in your screen reader.

To add column and row title names:
* Focus on the first cell in the row or column or at the first cell where the title row and title column intersect
* Open the Name dialog:

i. Open the Formula ribbon (ALT-M)

ii. Activate the “Define Nameâ€&#65533; command (M)

iii. Within the drop-down list, activate “Define Nameâ€&#65533;

iv. The “New Nameâ€&#65533; dialog opens



Focus is placed in the name field. Within the name field, you can name the focused cell or selected range of cells. In this case, we’re naming the column or row title:
* Name the cell using the following rules

i. Start the range name with the label that tells Excel you’re creating a title range
* Title – This tells Excel the column and row that intersect at the active cell are a title row and column
* ColumnTitle – This tells Excel the focused column contains the titles for the rows within the range
* RowTitle – this tells Excel the focused row contains titles for thee columns in the range

ii. Add a name for the range
* Title_WidgetSales
* ColumnTitle_WidgetSales
* RowTitle_WidgetSales

iii. Optional - Add the last cell in the range preceded by two periods
* Use this when you have multiple regions in a worksheet
* Title_WidgetSales..J25
* ColumTitle_WidgetSales..h32
* RowTitle_WidgetSales..r12
* Remember the cell address referenced is the last cell in the range for which you are creating titles

The next field in the dialog sets the scope for the name. this is a combo box. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to choose from between:
* Workbook - the title Is unique and can’t be used elsewhere in a workbook
* A Specific Worksheet - the name can be used elsewhere in a workbook

You can add a comment for the named cell or region, this is strictly for your personal reference and doesn’t affect the echo of the column or row title name

The last field references the cell name or range of selected cells you’re naming. You can leave this field alone.

Activate the OK button to save the name and close the dialog.

Save the workbook and the titles are permanently saved and will work on any computer.

If you have titles set to echo in JAWS, the titles will echo and you won’t lose the settings.

As Rick has indicated, if the page you want to print happens to be the one you currently are looking at in Word (or pretty much any program, it works the same in PDF readers and other programs, too).

Things did change in the Word 2016 print dialog, though.  At one time the "current page," "all pages," and "page range" options were presented as radio buttons, where if you used the page range option you then had to enter something like 2-7 if you wanted pages 2 through 7 of the current document to print.  In Word 2016, there is now a dropdown box, the first one in the settings section, that allows you to pick full document (Print all pages, the default), current page, or specific pages (page range).  You must use the dropdown if you want to choose current page and don't know or don't want to check the current page number, but if you want a page range, immediately under that dropdown is an edit box for pages, where you can enter a single page, e.g., 7, a contiguous page range, e.g. 2-5, or a combination of both, e.g. 3,7-11,14,19-25.  If you enter anything in that box it automatically switches the dropdown to reflect specific pages.

The dropdown box also allows you to print out certain properties associated with your document, rather than document pages.  You can review what those are if you expand the dropdown.

Combo box use the arrow keys to make a selection”.  I pressed alt and down arrow to open the combo box where it then gave me choices of all pages, current page, etc.  BTW; I also was able to make my choice by just arrowing down (not pressing alt down arrow to open a combo box.

I'm currently using NVDA, but all I do is tab to it.  It announces "Settings Grouping" then that I'm on the combo box (what I called a dropdown, because if you can't enter text into it it's really not a combo box), and I can either hit spacebar or enter to make it open to select what I want.  Then I navigate back to the Print button and hit it (or, hit ALT+F,P,P from wherever you happen to be to activate it without having to navigate back).

I also have the screen reader announcing the keyboard shortcut sequence to achieve the same thing without having to navigate to that dropdown, but you'd have to get there once to hear it.   ALT+F,P,A shoots you straight to the dropdown, which is expanded when you land on it, and you can select current page.   ALT+F,P,S takes you straight to the select page range edit box, where you can enter a page number, series of numbers, series of ranges, or any combination thereof.

What Chrome Extensions do you have installed?   It sounds like some sort of privacy related extension is deleting all your cookies upon exiting Chrome, and Chrome does not support this by default.   Either that, or you're firing up Chrome in incognito mode (which takes some very intentional doing) in which case nothing is preserved when the incognito session is closed.

Hello Tim,
If no one else has suggested this yet, try the following.
1. Please open the Facebook Mobile app.
2. After logging into your account, go to the friends tab. If you're using an iPhone, this tab is the second tab from the bottom left of your screen.
3. After double-tapping on friends, swipe rightwards upon knowing you're at the begining of the screen.
4. Go to "find friends" and double-tap.
5. On that screen, make sure that friends is selected instead of the apparent default, suggestions. Hope this helps!
thank you for your question,

Once you searched for something the way Rick described there is a much easier way to search again, simply press F3.
The very first time you use Jaws search pressing F3 actually should give you the same result as Jaws Key + Control + F which his to bring up the following:

JAWS Find dialog
Find what: edit combo

Type in your search term and press enter, then, as I said, simply press F3 to search for the same search term again, if you want to search for something else then you have to press Jaws Key + Control + F.

Hi,

Simple search for skip. Insert +control +f. type in skip and hit enter. The first skip will be found. Be sure it says skip add. Otherwise, do the search as noted again. When you hear skip ad, hit enter and the said ad is done.
You can also continuously hit the b key and when yu hear skip ad, hit enter.
This will be easier but with so many buttons, you could be hitting this and the ad may end before you find the correct button to skip the ad.

Simple search for skip. Insert +control +f. type in skip and hit enter. The
first skip will be found. Be sure it says skip add. Otherwise, do the search
as noted again. When you hear skip ad, hit enter and the said ad is done.
You can also continuously hit the b key and when yu hear skip ad, hit enter.
This will be easier but with so many buttons, you could be hitting this and
the ad may end before you find the correct button to skip the ad.

I find the button quick nav B works for me, but what also usually works is to do a quick Jaws Find for “skip”

Hi,

 

Recently I’ve been having trouble with finding the Skip Ads button in YouTube. Today, several minutes into an 18 minute ad and being unable to find the Skip Ads button, I cornered a sighted coworker who easily found what they described as a Skip Ads popup button that was over the Play button area. This never announced as I tabbed and arrowed through the YouTube screen.

 

Is there a way or ways to consistently find YouTube Skip Ads buttons?

 

Thanks in advance, Keith

Suggestion: Try an ad blocker or an ad-blocking browser such as brave.  Youtube doesn't have ads on my systems.
