moderated Re: Keyboard Shortcut for Navigating Word Templates

 

Robbie,

            I'd have to see the actual template you're trying to use, as what various people consider templates, and even more so, form templates, varies widely.

If you want to play with three MS-Word Form Templates created by me, that are entirely accessible, download and open any one of these three:

BusNoteForm.dotx

NVDA_Github_Issue_Template.dotx

New_Client_Intake_Form.dotx

In each, once you activate the template a new fillable form will open in MS-Word.  You tab from form field to form field, some are edit boxes, some are checkboxes, and on each the screen reader should announce what it is you have landed on such that you know what you would be entering or checking/unchecking.  Hitting F1 on any form field should give additional help, but most often will just repeat what you heard when you first landed in the field.  I did the F1 help mostly so if someone was in the middle of filling out a form, and got distracted by something, they could just hit F1 to find out where they had been in the form rather than needing to tab and shift+tab or vice versa to get the form filed announced again.

moderated Re: Using Microsoft Teams with JAWS + additional questions

Van Lant, Robin
 

  1. Zoom is a web conference  application for meetings.  The company is Zoom.
  2. Teams is a Microsoft application for collaboration.  I know it’s used within organizations for meetings and also general collaboration for ongoing projects.   I suspect it’s Microsoft’s version of Zoom, with additional features, but I’m not fully sure.
  3. Google offers Hangouts, which allows for video meetings.   I just started using this and it seems more like a way to have a conversation with multiple people. I don’t think of it as a tool businesses would use to present a slideshow, but I’m still new.  Maybe the Meet.Google.com thing you are talking about is more for that.  Hangouts and the link you shared are both associated with Google, not Microsoft or Zoom.   When I go to the link you sent, it appears that Google Meet is Google’s version of Zoom.  I haven’t seen any talk on this list about this particular Google product, but others definitely talk about Google docs, Chrome, Hangouts and such, so I’m optimistic that Google Meet would be accessible.  If you run into trouble with it and if you have a smart phone, get the Be My Eyes app and, from within that app, you can get a direct link to someone in Google Accessibility for help getting oriented to the new tool.

 

We all empathize.  This is a crazy learning curve we are all on to adjust to working remotely. 

Robin

 

 

Teams is Microsoft’s collaboration program.

Good morning all,

 

I’m feeling overwhelmed by all the on-line things that are now being used. My employer is using Meet.google.com for meetings and collaboration. I know this is different from Zoom, but is it also different fromTeams? Are there others on the list using Google Meets? Is Hangouts the same as any of these?  Please clarify and give me some good places to learn how to use Google Meets.

 

Many thanks.

Hi Sameer,

 

I’m hardly using Teams for three weeks now on a laptop running Windows 10 with jaws 2020 latest update because this is my employer’s recommended tool for remote working.

 

This app is globally accessible except for defining a “contact group” in the “Chat” tab, “Contacts” subtab.

 

In order to learn how to use it, I started from this web page:

 

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/basic-tasks-using-a-screen-reader-with-microsoft-teams-538a8741-f21b-4b04-b575-9df70ed4105d#picktab=windows

 

I did not install any Jaws script yet but if there are some, I’d also like to know.

 

Hope this helps. Have a nice day. Chris D

Is Microsoft Teams accessible with JAWS or do we need to install additional JAWS scrips to make it accessible? If we need to install additional JAWS scrips, kindly inform me where I can get these scrips.

 

Also, request you to kindly point me to a source for keystrokes to be used with Microsoft Teams. I am using the latest version of JAWS 2020 on a Windows 10 machine.

Hi,

I use the Walmart site each month to order many grocery and other items. I'm using the latest Jaws2020 on Windows10 and have had no problems.

one thing that helps me to locate my search results is to use either the L key to find lists of search results or the G key to skip through graphics. Almsot all results will have a corresponding image. It would be nice if the site was layed out to be a bit more screen reader friendly, say by using Heading styles, but it is still very doable with JFW once you get used to it.

Hi Brian,

Sorry to be so vague. I once saw that you could use F11 to navigate through Word templates such as resumes, forms and such. I tried navigating through the fields in a resume template with F11 and nothing happened.

Is there something else that I need to do or what mode should I be in to accomplish this?

Thanks.

This is far to vague to be answered.  What is it, precisely, that you're trying to navigate?

Is it in the template itself in when it is in edit mode?  Is it the document created by the template and, if so, what form of editing restriction is in place (e.g., fill in forms only)?

You might already be doing this, but F6 moves you between panes, so say you’re in your table of values, like music and things. You can move to another pane, like who the artest and stuff is by pressing F6. If you press it repeatedly, you’re back in the table, and tab also works for this. Yet, with tab, you have to listen to JAWS say things like your volume, iTunes store, and a whole bunch of other checkboxes. CTRL will be your best friend if you wan to go to podcasts, movies, and/or books. Note that audiobooks is the only thing available in the books section, something like CTRL and 5 on the numer row. CTRL 4 gets you to youyr pocasts, 3 with CTRL gets you to TV shows, I think, and for movies, CTRL an 2.

Maybe due to the accessibility, it is still worth a try.
