I wonder if insert + S would help.
I think the default place is highlighted.
It rotates between three choices, All, None, and Highlighted.

Subject: Major Issue With Excel 2016


Hi,
I use Excel 2016 on Windows 10 with Jaws 2019 all day long at work and have
few if any issues. However, one of my coworkers who has nearly an identical
configuration can’t edit cells in a spreadsheet by pressing F2 and using the
arrows to move around the cell. Jaws gives her no speech at all, just “blank
blank blank”. Why is that happening and what can we do to fix the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Tom

Thanks to all of you for your input. I just placed another order, and everything went fine. I even got the option to use another address, though I didn’t choose that one this time. They did send me a one-time password for authentification, which I used and all is well. Not sure what’s going on. I used the regular site. Yesterday, however, I was trying both sites with no luck.

 

Thanks again.

I use QRead for pretty much all my eBook reading at this point. I can’t recall at the moment if QRead supports Daisy, but I do know it does support a lot of formats and since it’s an application whose sole purpose is for accessible eBook reading, I’d venture to guess it can handle them.

That said, for Bookshare books, I’ve long since switched my default download preference to ePub format to avoid situations like this to begin with.

Someone on one of these lists also posted something about another eBook reading application called bookworm, but I’m not familiar with it so can’t comment on it beyond that.

Good luck.

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 under Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.  The FS Reader 3 program constantly crashes on me, and is really sluggish.  Is there a more stable Daisy reader I could use?  Or, is there a way to make FS Reader 3 more stable?  BTW, the Daisy books I get from Bookshare are “text only;” although for some strange reason they seem to come through with images.

 

Thanks,

Norma A. Boge
 

Hi group,

 

I'm using the latest Jaws with Outlook 365. I am making my way through CathyAnne Mertha's immersion textbook but still have a number of problems I'm hoping to get some help with:

 

Problems with Jaws

-inconsistent in reporting message status when arrowing through message list

-Seems to hang randomly, but occurs most after executing reply command

 

What I've tried

-made sure Outlook is maximized

-Updated to latest Jaws

-Close and reopen outlook 365

-Restart PC

-Double checked   Jaws settings

 

Thanks,

Norma

I use QRead for pretty much all my eBook reading at this point. I can’t recall at the moment if QRead supports Daisy, but I do know it does support a lot of formats and since it’s an application whose sole purpose is for accessible eBook reading, I’d venture to guess it can handle them.

That said, for Bookshare books, I’ve long since switched my default download preference to ePub format to avoid situations like this to begin with.

Someone on one of these lists also posted something about another eBook reading application called bookworm, but I’m not familiar with it so can’t comment on it beyond that.

Good luck.

Subject: Is there a more stable Daisy reader than FS Reader 3?

 

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 under Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.  The FS Reader 3 program constantly crashes on me, and is really sluggish.  Is there a more stable Daisy reader I could use?  Or, is there a way to make FS Reader 3 more stable?  BTW, the Daisy books I get from Bookshare are “text only;” although for some strange reason they seem to come through with images.

 

Thanks,

Richard

moderated Re: web page to try in Chrome

 

I  do not know what a screen reader normally encounters when they hit an "article as slide show" style article, but that's what the referenced article is.

Also, when I go in to the ZDNet site by activating that link the dialog box that pops up fro me, under Brave (also Chromium based), is asking whether I want to allow ZDNet to show notifications, with Block and Allow as the two options.

Although I can find several ways to move from item to item, then getting to the actual text you want to read is messy when you arrive on any one of them, as focus is still on the control that allows you to move.  This page is ill-designed from a number of aspects and accessibility is but one of them.
