moderated Using Skype

Justin Mcdevitt

Hello List-members,

I have scheduled a training session (via Skype) with a BrailleNote user for tomorrow to provide some training in using the Apex which I recently purchased, primarily as a Notetaker. I am reaching out to the list to request some assistance with using Skype, a program that I haven’t used in a number of years.

I have set up a Skype account and downloaded the Windows 10 desktop version of Skype and reviewed the JAWS/Skype keyboard commands.

What I would appreciate is the opportunity to review some of these commands and get some direction in adding a contact and setting up a Skype session to participate in this Apex training, again scheduled for tomorrow.

If anyone, who is familiar with Skype has some time today to provide some direction, I would appreciate it. Please contact me offlist: jhmcdev@....

Best, Justin .

Hi Steve,

Let’s say you have Yes or no in cells B2 to B100. In cell B101, or wherever you wish, type the formula,
CountIf(B2:B100,”Yes”).
This will give you the number of cells with “Yes” in them.
Then, in B102, or whoever you wish, type the formula,
=CountA(B2:B100)
Note the letter “A” after “Count” in the above formula.
This will give you the total number of cells in column B that have data.
Now, to calculate the percentage of cells with “Yes” in them, in cell B103, or wherever, type the formula,
=B101/B102
You are dividing the number of “Yes” by the total number of cells with data.
You will get a number like 0.67 or something like that. Press CTRL + 1 while in that cell and change the number formatting to Percentage, choose the number of decimal places you wish to show, and tab to OK.

Hope this helps.

Russell

Tanguy LOHEAC

Hi Steve,

Sorry, i'm French, then I don't know exact function names in English. But i'll try to guide to the right path:

To get the number of "yes" from column B the formula is something like that

=nb.if(b2:b10;"yes") where b2:b10 is the range of rows you want to sum and "yes" is what you want to sum.

Then, to get the total number of tasks that are in column A this is:

=sub.total(3;a:a)-1 : here i'm not sure about the name but you may find it from the Math category.

Then fi you want a percentage this is first divided by second as follows:

=nb.if(b2:b10;"yes") / (sub.total(3;a:a)-1)

Hope that helps anyway

Yes, you can use JAWS commands to mark blocks of text. All screen readers have this capability now.

In the forthcoming book Windows Keyboard Power User Guide, which should actually finally appear in the next couple weeks, I show you how to create a better set of keystrokes to do this, but until then:

Go to the beginning of the block you want to set and press ctrl+windows+K.

Suddenly Jaws stopped working correctly in MS Word and now in Outlook as well.

It will not speak when moving by line, word, or character.  Insert down arrow does seem to read the document, but obviously I am not able to edit a document with it not speaking by line, word, or character.  I am running the latest version of Jaws and windows 10 pro.  I have had this happen occasionally in the past, but a restart of Jaws or the computer has always solved the issue until tonight.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

It is one thing to explain what you do and what works for you, but you should do so with a warning that this may have negative effects for others, the accessibility display driver was used for a long time and while Vispero is trying to get away from it, there is a reason why it's not yet gone or even unchecked by default.

Please don't tell people to uninstall the video accessibility driver, that is very bad advice at this point especially if the accessibility display driver is checked in Settings. If that is the case and you uninstall the video display driver each time your system boots or Jaws restarts it will give you a message that the display driver is missing and while the system may mostly work fine, there are situations where it will not work correctly. I use software, for example, which works only if the accessibility display driver is enabled and in other situations it works better if it is disabled and I use the new so-called GDI or deep level hooking.
In any case, for most people who are just Jaws users and not terribly technically inclined this could have really bad consequences and they would then need tech support to help them fix the problem.

Hi. At least with version 1809, jfw will not read anything in the

window, I see the text, but other wise nothing -- jaws cursor
reads nothing as well. Tech support says its not supported, but
that makes no sense to me and Narrator reads it fine.
