Two thoughts, and there could be many others. First, put the JAWS
focus somewhere else, maybe you are focused on the time display.

Van Lant, Robin
 

Even more specifically, once you open the cell formatting dialog, tab once to Category and arrow down to “Date”.  Excel defaults the cell format to General, which is at the top of the list.  Once “Date” is selected, tab once and you’ll have a list of the way you want the date to show up.  You can select choices where it just shows month, or month and day or month, day, year.  Arrow down and hit enter on the one you want.

I wonder if you had a suggestion about a problem I am having with excel. I have gone through all of the help info with no luck at all. I don’t know if you can help but here it is. Excel does not recognize date formats as numbers only as text. When I enter a dates in a date column I need it to be recognized as a date in order to sort them to put them in order. I have no luck in using the date value or value function getting an error that my formula is wrong. I have gone on the internet and have had no luck with support.microsoft.com and it isn’t a disability issue for Microsoft accessibility help. Is there something I am missing? Do you have any suggestions ?

I am not sure what you are exactly trying to do.   You said that Excel is not recognizing dates as text only.
Excel recognizes the contents of a cell depending on how you have the cell formatted.  How do you have the cells you are entering dates in formatted?  To change the format of a cell hit control and the number 1 on the numbers row.  This will bring up the format dialog box.  I would recommend changing the format of the cells to date to see if this helps you accomplish what you are trying to do.

If you're using OCR extensively, you may notice. Likewise if you're a software developer who compiles large programs frequently, or you're doing something else that is computationally intensive. Otherwise, the CPU probably isn't the performance problem.

Benchmarks tell an 8th of the story. In every day performance, it means nothing. Slow to one person may not be slow to another and that $500 extra spent on the i9 processor wouldn't be noticeable to anyone but a tech enthusiast or someone who does heavy processing work, and would make more heat, thus likely lessening the laptop's lifespan. This isn't so much the case in a desktop with adequate cooling, where these days stock clock speeds hover right around 5 ghz, which even in our rapidly changing computing era, will last for years and years and again, 99% of people don't take advantage of 20% much less 100% of the power of their processors.

No. i9 is just higher than i7, the generation number is still the same, with all the newest ones starting out with 9's.


I wonder if an i9 in a laptop could even outrun an i5 in a desktop of
the same generation? That's the silly thing about all of this, my 7th
generation i5 laptop was barely able to get a better passmark cpu score
than my 4th generation i5 desktop. Both are still adequate performers,
especially running ssd hard drives and plenty of ram. I'd take an i9 if
someone were handing them out for free, but I wouldn't spend extra for one.

I wrote, see if 32gb or 64gb should work because if you're using jaws and the latest version, you'll need ram just because jaws does use a nice amount of ram. Not to mention if you're using other screen reading programs.
