Hi

 

I have attempted to use the mail feature in Office 2013.  Where I have problems is selecting different envelope sizes.  When I do that, then the delivery address gets messed up.  There is part of this mail option which JAWS does not read well, at least the last time I tried to use it a year or so ago.  I did discuss it with Microsoft and concluded it was a JAWS issue since Narrator read it fine.  I did report it to VFO and was told it would be put on the list of fixes.  I took this to mean it could be a very, very long time for this to work. 

 

Any ideas on using this feature easier?  I did not have such issues in Office 2007.

 

Barbara

Brian,  I have downloaded your envelope template, but can’t seem to move between fields.  I only hear JAWS say “Return Address edit”.  Tabbing and arrowing do nothing.  I am using MS Word 2007 and JAWS 2019 on a Windows 7 computer.

For anyone who may want it, I created a MS-Word document template several years ago for a #10 standard business sized envelope that is screen-reader accessible and has two fields, one for the return address and the other for the address.  Both should be announced when landed in by the screen reader and can be repeated if you hit the help key.  There is nothing in this other than the envelope, so you don't have to deal with an "orphan page" for a letter.

The return address is always positioned pretty much perfectly.  The main address will always be near the center of the envelope but depending on how many lines you have may or may not be perfectly positioned vertically.

I use Microsoft Office to print envelopes.  It pulls the mailing address from an open letter and has a stored return address that can be printed or not as you wish.  There is also an address book option.

 

My printer tends to wrinkle the end of the envelope where the return address is printed.  If anyone knows how to rotate the printing so that the return address end of the envelope is printed first the wrinkle would be on the postage end where there is no printing.

Tony,

 

If I'm understanding your question, I don't have any great workarounds for identifying which labels are left on a sheet of Avery 5160 which contain 10 rows of 3 labels per row as I mentioned in my first post. I can sort of feel by touch which labels have been used so I can properly identify the row and column of the next unused label when printing individual labels. Also, when I've moved down a sheet so that the only ones left are the bottom two rows, I can flip the sheet over so that those two remaining rows are at the top so it's like I'm starting with row 1 again.

 

I hope this helps but post back if I misunderstood your question.

I learned a long time ago after repeated envelope jams in the office laser printer to print on labels instead of envelopes. I prefer the Avery 5160 labels which come 3 to a row with 10 rows for a total of 30 labels on a sheet the same size as an 8 and a half by 11 inch sheet of paper and that can be loaded in a laser printer paper tray. Microsoft Word allows for label printing and you can select the label type and style and either print a full page of the same label or specifically identify what row and column label you are printing and print them individually. The sheet never jams in my black and white laser printer and I remove the printed label from the sheet and stick it on my envelope of choice for mailing. I keep a full sheet of return address labels which I use as needed.

 

I recommend that those having trouble printing addresses on envelopes give this method a go. It works great with Word 2010.

Hi,

After trying the suggestions given, with sighted assistance, I used Word mail menu and got my envelope addressed; however, it was quite frustrating without sighted help. So, I went on line and downloaded and tested about 8 of them. I did not find any totally free ones, just trials. But the one that works the best was Envelope Maker at a cost of 30bucks for a license. I am using the trial right now and will consider in the future if it is a worthwhile  purchase. Thanks for all your suggestions.

Bill,

 

Thank you for the info.  Narrator came on but it didn’t help.  When I pressed tab, narrator would say tab and when I pressed up or down arrow it would say up arrow or down arrow.  Jaws won’t speak on that computer and I thought narrator might help me figure out why.  That computer has Windows 7 and Jaws 16.  I guess I’ll have to wait until I have sighted help available to tell me what’s on the screen and get Jaws speaking.

Home can be installed on more than one PC. I use Jaws on 2 PC's and a laptop with the home license. As long as I am the only one useing Jaws on any pc I own I can install jaws on it.

No commercial gives the  use on more then one device and cost a lot more money.  Other then that they work the same.

Hello members,

I am currently using JAWS 2020 –commercial license in my office and I am interested to purchase JAWS 2020 –Home edition for my personal use.

Is there is a difference in the functionalities while using various applications in both the editions-home and commercial version?

I have got Windows 10 home edition in my personal laptop.

Also is it a good idea to purchase SMA along with JAWS?

Thanks,

Meesha

I have noticed firefox crash a few times since the last update. This usually (unfortunately) happens when I am typing in an edit field. The virtual cursor turns off and in fact I can’t even close the window normally. Hopefully this will be fixed soon. Not sure if this is the problem you are having, but you didn’t say whether you restarted firefox or not. If you’re consistently not getting virtual cursor every time you restart the browser – then something is up with JAWS.

Nope, working fine here.  If you aren't running malware bytes, I'd suggest downloading it and scanning your system.

I have had some problems putting individual labels into the correct spot on a partially used label sheet.  Do you have any suggestions for that?

Subject: Try label instead of envelope printing for addresses was RE: Addressing envelopes

 

I learned a long time ago after repeated envelope jams in the office laser printer to print on labels instead of envelopes. I prefer the Avery 5160 labels which come 3 to a row with 10 rows for a total of 30 labels on a sheet the same size as an 8 and a half by 11 inch sheet of paper and that can be loaded in a laser printer paper tray. Microsoft Word allows for label printing and you can select the label type and style and either print a full page of the same label or specifically identify what row and column label you are printing and print them individually. The sheet never jams in my black and white laser printer and I remove the printed label from the sheet and stick it on my envelope of choice for mailing. I keep a full sheet of return address labels which I use as needed.

 

I recommend that those having trouble printing addresses on envelopes give this method a go. It works great with Word 2010.

You are not making any sense.  You cannot print an envelope without some kind of program.  You cannot simply place an envelope in the printer and print an address on it without launching a program like MS Word to print it.  So which program are you using?

Until I bought my Dymo Label Printer I just printed envelopes in the following way without the need to get special programmes:

 

First, take out your paper from the printer and place your envelope in it with the flap facing upwards and move the slider across till it touches the edge of the envelope.

Now save the address to your clipboard.

Then press alt m (for mail) and e (for envelope) and the press enter on the first option, which I think is envelopes and copy the address into the edit field.

Then tab down to print.

 

Hopefully the job is doen.

 

But I have to say my Dymo label printer is one of the most useful gadgets I have ever purchased.

I haven’t found it very useful, but Microsoft Accessibility is either doing a webinar on OneNote soon or recently did one.  On the last one I went to on using Microsoft Teams,, they used JAWS for the demonstration screen reader, so if you want to potentially use OneNote, I’d look into the webinar.

Hi,

 

I’m in the process of moving all my notes over to OneNote from 3 or 4 other places.

One of those places is Google keep.

 

How can I get my data from keep into OneNote?

 

I’ve done some research but my research shows that I’m supposed to use an app my pc says isn’t safe, so I’m not really sure what to do, because of course, I don’t want to harm my computer.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Tony,

           Though I could swear there used to be a way to do this in MS-Office, I can't find it now myself.  However, one can do it in the printer settings for many printers.  When I go to print an envelope, if I open Printer Properties from within the MS-Word print dialog, then go to the Page Setup dialog, there is a checkbox for Rotate 180 degrees, which does just that.  You must also remember to rotate your envelope 180 degrees from normal, too, if you want the flap to be in its usual position at the top when you do this.

            If you have an actual envelope document, you can specify to always use those printer settings for it so that you only have to go through this once.

Yes, I think you're right on that decision. I have it installed, think I'll uninstall it right now.

Reading about it on their web site and also about the iOS version in the app store, there are many features (not clearly specified) that are only available in the premium subscription.  The rates shown on the iOS app are $4.99 per month, or $39.99 per year or $149.99 for a lifetime Plex Pass.

One person said it takes forever to transfer files since it converts the format instead of using multiple formats.

They tried transferring a movie and many, many hours later it wasn’t finished.  He canceled that and manually copied it to OneDrive in 27 seconds.

Of course, that is copying to another place on the hard drive, but I know the sync time for OneDrive is very fast.

 

So, after reading about this with all of its promises, I think I will pass on this one.
