Go to a cell on the left of the hidden collums and hold down control shift and arrow right to the cell on the right of the hidden collum / collums are between the cells selected

 

Nowdo alt h o  and arrow down to hide unhide cells and arrow righe once and down to what you wish to unhide and hit enter.

 

The same works for hidden cells.

Hello:

I was sent a  spread sheet with hidden cells.  How can I unhide these columns?

I did find a unhide button under the view menu but it states unavailable and does not work.  Do I need to highlight something or something else to get  it to work?

Any help will be appreciated.

I could imagine the function keys being changed by an accidental key combination, this happens on some keyboards.  The other keys, though, I've never heard of being effected by such a thing.  I'd probably hunt down a manual for the keyboard before i gave up.

moderated OT: Real ID documentation requirements

 

I promise I will not post about this again, but since I've opened the proverbial "can of worms" and it's clear that many are interested, I thought I'd follow up with a dedicated topic.  I know that the main focus of the group is discussing JAWS.

The legislation that created the Real ID requirement is federal, so the documentation options really don't vary from state to state.  It appears that California has a Real ID document selection sequence of pages that do not require you to be logged in to any account here:  https://realid.dmv.ca.gov/your-real-id-checklist/

I started went through it and, at the end, it gives you the list of things you need to collect and bring with you based on what you indicated you had available when filling out the checklist.  The one and only discrepancy with the requirements that Virginia has is that Virginia will not accept a mobile phone bill, only a landline phone bill, for proof of residency.  California will accept a mobile phone bill indicating your home address.

I hope that folks who need to get a Real ID identification card will find this online checklist useful, even if they don't live in California.  If you can find one in your own state's DMV website, definitely use it instead.

Strangely enough, this transaction was the easy one.  Virginia (and I'd presume all states) has a special set of webpages at the DMV site to guide you through what you must bring in order to get a Real ID license/identification card.  Since the possible combinations can be head spinning, you can pick from "the menu" at each step and it then takes that into account when you go to the next item you might need.  At the end, it gives you the list of the items you've said you have that, taken as a collection, will qualify you for Real ID.  I took 'em along and it was no problem.

Now, getting the Virginia title for my car, which was purchased in Kentucky and is a rebuilt vehicle, required me to send all the paperwork including the Kentucky title and bill of sale to Richmond for processing.  They couldn't issue the title at the local DMV office.  And you can't get plates without a title so I will have another trip to the DMV office once I receive the title itself.

I'll try to take a look at that Chrome extension, about which I'd been unaware until this topic mentioned it.

Hi all,

I'm working with a student who has a fairly new HP laptop running
Windows 10, not sure exactly what edition of Windows. He is running
Jaws 2018, and yesterday Jaws quit speaking. I wasn't there when
this happened, but talked to him on the phone afterward. We could
not get Jaws to speak, so I had him turn Narrator on, and we quickly
discovered that the issue seemed to be the Eloquence speech
synthesizer. We went into the Voice settings and changed the
synthesizer from Eloquence to SAPI 5, 64 bit, and Jaws immediately
began speaking. I had the student try to go back and change the
synthesizer back to Eloquence, but it doesn't seem to be available
in the list of synthesizers.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar? Any ideas how to get
the Eloquence synthesizer back working?

Thanks all,

Russell

moderated Re: jaws 2020 speech issue with Bluetooth headphones

Don Mauck
 

I need to share this.

I installed Silenzio last week on my Lenovo T470 ThinkPad and the sound on my laptop became very unstable.

There was a lot of buzzing and big time stuttering. To the point of delaying keystrokes while typing.

I finally had to uninstall it, however, that was also a problem as the uninstall did not clean out the registry nor did it remove the startup folder in Program Files (x86). I took cleaning the registry manually, disabling the program in the system startup and then I was able to manually delete the entire folder. I had to restart my laptop after disabling Silenzio in the startup menu before I was allowed to delete the above mentioned folder.

By no means is this an attack on Silenzio, but I feel this should be part of the conversation.
