moderated Jaws Not Reporting Blank for Empty Cells in Excel

Mike B
 

I'm reposting this question so it gets it's own thread.
Hi,
I'm having the below issue when navigating in excel. 
When I use up and down arrrow to navigate, if the cell is blank, jaws is 100% silent. 
How can I fix this? 
Using office 365, windows 10 and jaws 2020, latest update 
Thanks,
Jessica

Here's another thought / guess.  Did you make any changes to the Jaws default dictionary in Jaws18 that might cause this problem?  If you did something to the JFD in Jaws18, that would have carried over to Jaws2019 if you imported your settings from J18 to J2019.

I am using JAWS 2019, Windows 7 and office 2007 and Windows Live Mail.  Each time that I type a date like March 22 in a word document or an email, JAWS will not read anything in that line of text where the date is.  It doesn't say anything at all.  This has been happening for a while, it even happened with JAWS 18.  Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi Marty,
 
Have you tried running Jaws with its default settings to rule out if it's a Jaws setting?  If not, try the following:
Hold down the, Insert key, then press the, spacebar, to activate the layered keystroke feature then press the letter, Z.  This will temporarily bypass
your settings and put Jaws into it's factory default settings mode.  This keystroke is a toggle so, press the key combination sequence again to go back
to your personal settings.
 
Also, try emailing tech support using any of the below email addresses to se FS VFO, / Vispero tech support can help you.
 
 
 
 
 

 
Temporary bypass using current User Settings and use JAWS factory default = Z.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Hi Ann!

 

There are some accessibility advantages when you have your own domain as opposed to a free domain hosted at wordpress.com.  I use bluehost.com; and they have a one-click install of WP.  I will not go into these accessibility advantages here, but there are more than a few.  Plus, having your own domain and a hosted site gives you full control, more flexibility and it is pretty inexpensive.

Hi,

Is it necessary to use a paid Wordpress account or is creating free Wordpress sites just as accessible with Jaws?

And any specific Wordpress book recommendations?

Thanks,

I have used WordPress, Drupal and learned some HTML.  For sure, WP is the best.  Learning some HTML is helpful too, but not critical.  Drupal seems to be more of an enterprise CMS.  WP can do it all; accessibly too.  Use its “classic editor.”  Get a book on using WP from Bookshare.

 Good day friends!

 

Thank you for adding me to the mailing list. This is my first post to the group, and I am excited, I can have my inquiries head. 

 

 I have never created a website before, and I want to learn how to do it. Where can I start? Is the place accessible with jars? Some people were telling me that I should use notepad, how is that effective?

 

Thank you for all the suggestions in advance!

 

Best regards

Hi Jessica,
 
This is an unrelated issue in regards to the original question.  To get your best answers start a new thread with a different subject line regarding your issue.  This way someone with Excel experience will see your post.  Use a subject line something like,
 
Jaws Not Reporting Blank on Empty Cells
 
or something like that.

There is a shorter way to delete.  As you type and you hear an address you do not want, just press delete at that point, no need to hit tab or anything else.

Hi Adrian, Thom and all,

 

Thanks to all for your fast responses. So, since it works for yyou, I tried with different screen readers, in case it could be a problem with my jaws configuration.

 

Neither NVDA, nor the windows 10 narrator could solve my problem. Here is an illustration of what I am trying to do:

 

  1. I create a new mail by pressing <ctrl+n>.
  2. In the “To:” field, I begin typing the first letters of the address I want to remove.
  3. I press the down or up arrow keys one or more times until the screen reader speaks me the address I want. For Jaws or NVDA, which have braille support, I also can read the suggestion on my braille display.
  4. If I press the <delete> key, the suggested address disappears from my braille display and only the letters I typed remain in the “To:” field. However, when I arrow up and down to see more suggested addresses, the one I hoped to remove by pressing <delete> while the screen reader was saying it still appears.

So, is there an outlook configuration setting to change for this to work for me like it does for you please?

 

Many thanks. Have a nice day. Chris D

Hi all,

 

With Jaws 2020, I’d like to know whether there is a way to remove one or more items from the address autocompletion list of Microsoft Outlook 365.

 

With older Outlook versions like 2010, and older versions of Jaws, I could select one no more wanted address and type the <delete> key instead of the <tab> key and it was removed from the autocompletion list. But now, this does not seem to work with the Outlook 2016 app which was installed by my subscription to Office 365, and Jaws version 2020.2001.70.

 

Many thanks in advance for any advice. Have a nice day. Chris D

so, if there is a setting to change the scaling and by doing so, funkyness can occur, why is the setting there? I would imagine most users would not expect funky things to happen by changing such an obscure (and unnecessary?) setting.

Subject: presence unknown in Outlook 2016 There is mixing of locations going on here. The Settings, System, Display Pane, Scale and Layout section is where this is found under Windows 10 (or at least most easily and directly). If you literally cannot see the safest thing is to leave scaling at 100%, which is what's recommended.

There can be all kinds of odd offshoots from having text scaled above 100%, though I have no idea if the "Presence Unknown" bit is one of them.

As to sorting contacts in Outlook 2016, it can be done in the same way it always has been done. I sort my contacts on the "File As" field because I want them to sort in Last Name, First Name order. Any column can be selected and then an ascending or descending sort applied.

In Outlook 2016, the method that works for me is to set up a new message, then type the first letter of the email address I want to delete. I arrow down through the resulting list and, when I have focus on the address, I press the delete key.

It doesn’t seem to work in the mail app either, as I’m wanting to get rid of some contacts I never use any more. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi all,

 

With Jaws 2020, I’d like to know whether there is a way to remove one or more items from the address autocompletion list of Microsoft Outlook 365.

 

With older Outlook versions like 2010, and older versions of Jaws, I could select one no more wanted address and type the <delete> key instead of the <tab> key and it was removed from the autocompletion list. But now, this does not seem to work with the Outlook 2016 app which was installed by my subscription to Office 365, and Jaws version 2020.2001.70.

 

Many thanks in advance for any advice. Have a nice day. Chris D

There is a shorter way to delete.  As you type and you hear an address you do not want, just press delete at that point, no need to hit tab or anything else.

When you get the email you want to remove by typing it in the field you need to hit enter to put it in the field.

 

Then you need to left arrow to it is selected or red to you and then hit deleate.

Hi Adrian, Thom and all,

 

Thanks to all for your fast responses. So, since it works for yyou, I tried with different screen readers, in case it could be a problem with my jaws configuration.

 

Neither NVDA, nor the windows 10 narrator could solve my problem. Here is an illustration of what I am trying to do:

 

  1. I create a new mail by pressing <ctrl+n>.
  2. In the “To:” field, I begin typing the first letters of the address I want to remove.
  3. I press the down or up arrow keys one or more times until the screen reader speaks me the address I want. For Jaws or NVDA, which have braille support, I also can read the suggestion on my braille display.
  4. If I press the <delete> key, the suggested address disappears from my braille display and only the letters I typed remain in the “To:” field. However, when I arrow up and down to see more suggested addresses, the one I hoped to remove by pressing <delete> while the screen reader was saying it still appears.

So, is there an outlook configuration setting to change for this to work for me like it does for you please?

 

Many thanks. Have a nice day. Chris D

hey Brian, my friend no longer has the presence unknown issue any more, thanks to you. but he still has the issue regarding the names in his contacts. they are sorted by first middle last name, but they don't appear to be alphabetized in ascending order.

you mentioned how you do it but I don't get it, so I can direct him what to do. can you expand on how you do it?

thanks Brian for the help.

so, if there is a setting to change the scaling and by doing so,
funkiness can occur, why is the setting there? I would imagine most
users would not expect funky things to happen by changing such an
obscure (and unnecessary?) setting.

There is mixing of locations going on here.  The Settings, System,
Display Pane, Scale and Layout section is where this is found under
Windows 10 (or at least most easily and directly).  If you literally
cannot see the safest thing is to leave scaling at 100%, which is what's
recommended.

There can be all kinds of odd offshoots from having text scaled above
100%, though I have no idea if the "Presence Unknown" bit is one of them.

As to sorting contacts in Outlook 2016, it can be done in the same way
it always has been done.  I sort my contacts on the "File As" field
because I want them to sort in Last Name, First Name order.   Any column
can be selected and then an ascending or descending sort applied.

The setting is not unnecessary if you're visually-impaired and helped by moderate magnification across the board, without resorting to going the Ease of Access route.

Very, very few people actually tweak this setting unless they need or want it.  I am doubting it's a factor here, but it's worth checking just to rule out the potential.

This could also be a JAWS bug, for all we know.  It's always worth reporting this stuff to the JAWS support folks.
