Van Lant, Robin
 

I’ll give a crack at explaining this to build on what Anne was saying:

For simplicity in my mind, I’m going to approach this slightly different from Anne.

 

I am assuming that cell D14 has your first dollar amount to add to the running balance in Column E.

Step 1.  Go to cell E14 and type “=D14”.  This is just pulling in the value from column D into column E for this line item as the first item in your running balance.

Step 2: go down to Cell E15.  This is the first place where you’ll be adding a new line item to your running balance. Your formula should be “=E14+D15”.  This adds the value of the new line item to the balance listed in the cell above.

Step 3.  Go to cell E16 and press Control+D , which will copy the above formula into this cell, adjusting the cell references as needed.  You can do this same keystroke all the way down Column E to build that running balance. 

 

There are other methods, but you seem to be a novice Excel user, so I’m leaving this simple.

Richard,

 

Is there a formula where the running balance/total can be in column E for example? Example: row 14 column D has $22.50 and this should be seen in same row 14 but column E. The next row, 15, has in column D $220.59 and row 15, column E should have the running total or sum. This would go down all rows and columns. Is this possible or just the total somewhere at the bottom cell where the total would be seen?

 

Thank you,

 

Rick

You can put the formula anywhere in column e that you want the total to be.

The formula should be =sum(d14:d100) 

Equals sum tells excel that you want to add numbers together.

open parenthesis d14 colon d100 close parenthesis tells it to add d14 through d100.

Hi all,

 

I am on an EXCEL spreadsheet, putting together a list of deductions for upcoming tax season.

 

Can anyone please explain how I add a formula to add up costs of items as a running total.

 

The costs are in column D and I am wanting the running balance in column E. Where do I put this formula and pardon my extreme ignorance here, what formula would I put in? The sum of these costs as they go down the column.

 

The costs start on row 14 column D and I would like this to go down the entire column, lets say to row 100 to be safe. Can someone please tell me the formula to put in and where this is embedded?

 

Thank you,

 

I am using Windows 10, Jaws 2019.1912.1 and Office 2019.

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Rick

a friend of my sister is looking to get back in to using JAWS with
Windows 10, but I'm not sure if she's several versions behind or never
used JAWS before. if I tell her if she can wait til the FS/VFO S&S
summer special, would she be able to save quite a bit on a first time
purchase if she never used JAWS before?

how would one know if there is going to be a special, and when will the
upcoming special begin?

First off verify that you have "layout" tables ignored  in your JAWS quick settings.  Also, there is aa Outlook function to "View in Browser", this used to be in the ribbon, but it seems to be hidden these days, and if activated warns you that the Browser is has a different security configuration from Outlook. You can add it into the Quick Access Bar if you think it would be useful.

Hopefully one of these will help,

Hi, Rick,

Assuming the following formula in E14:
=e13+d14.
E13 should have your beginning balance, which would be 0 (Excel assumes a
blank is 0).
D14 should have the first number you want to add to the beginning balance,
e.g. 10.
So. the number in e14 (e13+d14) should be 10.
Copying/pasting the formula into f15, it should read =e14+D15.
So. E14 is 10, as calculated above; +d15 which is the next number you are
adding, say 32. E15 should equal 42.
And it carries on down, incrementing as you go.

Make sense? Only one cup of coffee so far, so if it doesn't I will drink
more and try to explain it better.

The keys don’t actually get stuck down but behave as though they are. We have tried cleaning them.

I had a feeling that this was discussed before Christmas and I wasn’t alone with this issue where the computer behaves as though the alt key or windows key is still depressed.

I think I will take Ed’s advice and wait till the summer before upgrading Jaws and take advantage of Sight and Sound’s Summer Deal as it looks as if it will cost me around £350 to upgrade from Jaws 18 to the current version.

Subject: [win10] Edge 79: if your screen reader is having trouble working with web content shown in Edge... #ChromiumEdge

 

Hi all,

 

Someone reported on JFW list (hosted on Groups.IO) that the user cannot interact with certain web content displayed in Edge 79 beta, along with a thread on Win10 forum about inability to interact with web content shown in Edge with other screen readers. This issue can be traced to the fact that, in Edge 79 (upcoming stable version), UI Automation is enabled (several reports were sent to Microsoft about this issue). Unfortunately, as an NVDA core developer (not me) notes, UIA implementation in Chromium-based web browsers (including Edge) isn’t solid yet.

 

To work around this for now, you need to disable UIA support in Edge and other Chromium-based web browsers (if your browser exposes this option). To do so in Edge 79:

 

  1. Start new Microsoft Edge (not the old one).
  2. From address omnibox (Alt+D), type “edge://flags” (without quotes and as exactly as shown) and press Enter.
  3. Type “UI Automation” into “search flags” and press Tab to move through resulting content (no, DO NOT PRESS ENTER AFTER TYPING FLAGS!).
  4. Go to “Native UI Automation” combo box and select “disabled”.
  5. Press Tab to go to “Restart” button and click it.

 

Screen reader specifics:

 

  • Narrator: supports native UI Automation
  • JAWS: works better with native UI Automation off
  • NVDA: works better with UI Automation off and a fix is being developed
  • Other screen readers: contact vendors

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Thank you so much for the suggestions David! I've reached out to Brian already actually and he's busy until March. :). I'll see what the others have to offer though.

Thanks again,

Hi all,



I have a client who's looking for a particular script to be written for Jaws, he has 2020. This script needs to announce the numbers as they change in a stock ticker. These are updated in real time. If anyone could help with inof on this I'd really appreciate it.



Thanks in advance,



Sarah

The first instance of the formula would be in e14, right?

then. With e13 blank, this would be the formula:
=d14+e13. This should display the number in d14.

To propagate the formula down the page:

So. Copy the formula in e14.
Then Ctrl+g (go to).
Type in the cells you want to hold the formula (e15:e100) and enter.
The cells will be selected.
Paste the formula ctrl+v.
that should do it.

good luck!

Richard,

 

Is there a formula where the running balance/total can be in column E for example? Example: row 14 column D has $22.50 and this should be seen in same row 14 but column E. The next row, 15, has in column D $220.59 and row 15, column E should have the running total or sum. This would go down all rows and columns. Is this possible or just the total somewhere at the bottom cell where the total would be seen?

 

Thank you,

 

Rick

You can put the formula anywhere in column e that you want the total to be.

The formula should be =sum(d14:d100) 

Equals sum tells excel that you want to add numbers together.

open parenthesis d14 colon d100 close parenthesis tells it to add d14 through d100.

HTH,

Hi all,

 

I am on an EXCEL spreadsheet, putting together a list of deductions for upcoming tax season.

 

Can anyone please explain how I add a formula to add up costs of items as a running total.

 

The costs are in column D and I am wanting the running balance in column E. Where do I put this formula and pardon my extreme ignorance here, what formula would I put in? The sum of these costs as they go down the column.

 

The costs start on row 14 column D and I would like this to go down the entire column, lets say to row 100 to be safe. Can someone please tell me the formula to put in and where this is embedded?

 

Thank you,

 

I am using Windows 10, Jaws 2019.1912.1 and Office 2019.

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Rick
