Subject: Microsoft Word 365 on the web
 
For reasons I won’t bore you all with, it looks like my only option for opening and editing documents is through the web version of Ms Word 365.

However, I have never used it online, and non-visually it seems to be rather different than using the installed app.
If I start at the top of the document, or anywhere, pushing down arrow, instead of saying what’s on the next line, it says: “Edit, contains text, type and text.”
But doesn’t say what the text is.
If the line or field is a heading or title or something like that, it says that, but also doesn’t read the text though.

The current document, and other documents I have tried, are documents I created myself, in the Microsoft Word app a few weeks ago. Nothing wrong with the documents. Additionally, as far as I can tell, if I try to type on the line where it has just said: “Edit, contains text, type and text.” It is not actually typing anything.

Does anyone what’s going on here? Is the web version usable with screen readers?
How does this work?

Thanks,
Anna

This worked good. However, once I saved the changes by selecting ok, exited Outlook, then rebooted computer same issue occurred. Now the directions you suggested don’t work as tabbing does not show arrange by choice. Suggestions?

Try this:

Alt then arrow over to view.

Arrow down, then tab to arrange by button and hit enter.

Tab to show in groups and uncheck with space bar.

This should kick you out and should be good.

I am using Windows 10, JAWS 2019, and Outlook 13 I believe.

your outlook is set to arrange by groups, dates.

I'm not at my computer right now, but you can turn off that feature in outlook.

If you want it left on, but want Jaws to ignore it, maybe Mike B, or someone else who knows Jaws settings better will chime in.

Hi,
I'm a huge fan of crossword puzzles, and word games in general.
I'm aware of Aph's crossword web app, but I'd like something that can be
played regardless of whether or not I have internet.
Does anyone know of any good crossword apps, and other word games, that
work well with jaws?


Just did a google search, and a bunch of stuff from the Windows store
came up, but I don't know if those games are accessible.

Thanks,
Jessica

Hi,

 

I use Netbeans IDE 8.2. It has some issues but it works fairly well.

Hello!

I need to work with Jetbrains Rider, a software foe developing software. The program is written in JAVA, so I need to use the JAB. However from what I recall from previous years, the JAWS support for JAVA applications is not good. Has the situation improved or I will have to go back to NVDA?

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced many of us to spend more time at home. Some of us are now working from home. Some of us may be staying home to stay safe. Others may be at home in order to self-isolate or quarantine. Even before all of this began there have been many opportunities for online training using meeting platforms such as Zoom. Now that more of us are forced to stay in our homes the opportunities for remote training and assistance will likely increase.

A couple of weeks ago I attended my first Ibug conference where participants are encouraged to ask questions and to provide support for one another with their iOS devices. I really liked the format of the conference but I wanted to see a similar opportunity covering topics from a Windows perspective.

I decided that I’d like to host such a conference and this will likely be the first in a series of free, online tech workshops, assuming there is enough interest in such a project.

The first of these workshops is titled, “JAWS, Just Because” and is scheduled for Friday, March 20 at 8:00 PM Eastern time. This conference will allow users of the JAWS screen reader to both ask questions as well as to provide answers to those who use the JAWS screen reader. No question is too basic or too esoteric and it should be stressed that there is no such thing as a stupid question.

For this conference I’m looking for two types of participants. First, anyone with a question regarding JAWS is, of course, welcome. Second, I’m hoping that those who are knowledgeable in the use of JAWS will also consider participating to share knowledge. Due to time constraints we won’t have time to provide lengthy support or to tandem into a user’s machine. Questions which require this type of intervention would best be addressed by Vispero’s technical support.

In order to keep the conference running smoothly I am going to adopt a similar policy which has been successfully used by iBug. Users who wish to ask a question or to provide a response should say their name, as in, “This is John.” At that point please wait to be acknowledged by the host, as in, “Go ahead, John.”

I have some other ideas for similar workshops but would like to hear some of yours so that I can determine the needs that you have as well as the level of interest With many of us working from home are there specific applications or programs that you might want some assistance with? Programs that come to mind are Slack, Teams, etc. Would there be interest in similar workshops for NVDA users?

I would also like to invite other assistive technology trainers to write to me privately if you’re interested in assisting with any of these workshops. Many of you may have some ideas which I haven’t thought of and you surely have expertise with topics which I do not. I am unable to provide any type of compensation for any assistance you may choose to provide but the point of these workshops is to provide free assistance to those who may be spending more time at home doing work or completing other tasks. This can be a stressful time for many of us. Many kind and patient people assisted me when I was first learning about assistive technology and I just want to pay it forward and give something back to the blindness community, particularly during this time when the need for some tech help may be even greater

Here is the relevant information about the upcoming conference.

Hello,

 

Using latest Windows 1909, Outlook 2016, and yesterday’s update of jaws the following announcement keeps repeating as I arrow down through mail in my inbox:

Group By: Expanded: Date: Yesterday

Each time I get to a message with a different date this announcement occurs. I’ve unchecked many verbosity setting in Outlook but can’t quiet this message. Suggestions?

Now, what does this show in groups do?
Exactly what it's name implies, and in the case of the default settings, that grouping is by date.  So, in your typical Outlook message listing it will start with the Today group (which is generally expanded along with several of the "more recent messages" groups that follow), then Yesterday, then each of the days of this current week, working back to Sunday.  After that there will be groups for Last Week, Two Weeks Ago, Three Weeks Ago, Last Month, then, finally, the Older group.

When you're arrowing up or down through your message list and, say, you know the message you're cruising to find came in Yesterday (and lets presume that Yesterday in this case is Tuesday) if you suddenly encounter the Monday group you know you've either missed it, or you're not remembering the correct day it came in.  But even when grouping is on, it's there as a quick convenience for seeing groups of messages from specific time periods.  The sort order, if kept in the default of newest to oldest, by date, will have all the conversations arranged that way or, if you turn conversation view off, all of the individual messages arranged that way.
