Hi Richard,

I think I have “smart quotes” in my instructions. I typed the instructions from Mail on my iMac, and, when I read your quotes VoiceOver reads Quote yes quote and in my instructions, VoiceOver reads right double quote Yes right double quote. Yes, it reads right double quote for both! :)

Thanks Mario for catching the differences, and apology Richard!

I'm blind and Jaws said the exact same thing in reading both versions.

You stated pretty straight forwardly that the smart quotes was the issue... Not helpful unless we know which version had the smart quotes.

Thanks,
Richard

left quotes and right quotes ar smart quotes. for example, left quote, I said that, right quote. the quotes are rarely referred to as curly quotes.
the left quote is actually like or close to a smaller left parenthesis with a water droplet on the top half of the symbol pointing down, and the right quote is a smaller version of the right parenthesis with a water droplet at the bottom half of the symbol pointing up. in both symbols, the water droplet is a part of the left or right small parenthesis.
the concept is, the left quote marks the opening to what someone said, and the right quote is the closing of what someone said.

I’m not sure why Russell’s instructions didn’t work for me, but I did the following and it worked.
In b101: =COUNTIF(B2:B100,"Yes")
IN b102, =COUNTA(B2:B100)
In b103, =B101/B102

To test this, I put a Yes in b2 and No in b100.
I got 1 as the result of yes’s, 2 in the result for number of cells with data in b102, and .50 in b103 which then switching the number type to percent, got 50.00. I did not bother changing the decimal places from the default.

HTH,

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.

I’m not sure why Russell’s instructions didn’t work for me, but I did the following and it worked.
In b101: =COUNTIF(B2:B100,"Yes")
IN b102, =COUNTA(B2:B100)
In b103, =B101/B102
 
To test this, I put a Yes in b2 and No in b100.
I got 1 as the result of yes’s, 2 in the result for number of cells with data in b102, and .50 in b103 which then switching the number type to percent, got 50.00.  I did not bother changing the decimal places from the default.

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

I agree with Russell’s approach.  That is exactly how I would do it.  Technically you can combine both of the formulas into one cell, but I tend to like to show the results of each count in a different cell.

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 .

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

Are you talking just marking to then copy, or cut?

Those keystrokes also work on the web and you follow the insert+space m with the copy command, control+c, etc.

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.

 

Go to the end of the block and press Jawskey+space, M.
