Hi Kevin,

I use Microsoft word regularly because I’m a college student.

I hope you do it good with Microsoft word 2016 because the last I remember is that I got serious troubles with the comments in this particular version, of course, that was almost a year ago when I decided to switch to office 2019 and check it there was any enhancement in this regard. I was proven to be right, and since then I’ve been using this version, but may be these Microsoft guys fixed the issue with the comments in the 2016 version.

 

anyway, to help you out, I will give you a few keyboard shortcuts that will surely make your life easier when text processing.

 

First and foremost, when you are in a document, press jaws key plus h, and this will bring up a very helpful list of commands that you can use, including commands for listing comments, grammar mistakes, etc.

 

Secondly, to insert a comment, select a word and press control plus alt plus m.

Thirdly, to reply to a comment I do the following:

I locate the jaws cursor before the word that contains the comment, and press alt plus r plus n. Important! This key combination is a word combination, so you do not press all of them at once, but one followed by the other. This will locate the cursor exactly over the comment you want to reply to. Now what you have to do is is to bring up the context menu and arrow down until you find the option to reply.

 

As a side note, if everything is working fine in your version of Microsoft word, I strongly suggest disabling automatic updates because in my experience some updates can really mess the accessibility.

 

Hth

 

 

 

 

 

Best,
   Leo

moderated Is Python coding something I can do with JAWS?

Van Lant, Robin
 

Hi,

I have several friends and coworkers who are teaching themselves Python.  I haven’t done coding since college in the early 1990’s, and that was just a required computer science class.  Is Python a language I could potentially learn and use with JAWS?  If so, anyone have any recommended resources for self-learning?  I just saw a Groupon deal for a Python class, but I have no idea if the online learning tool would be accessible; It’s only $17, so I might try it.

I open the document, press f6 and tab to enable editing and press enter. You
will need to save the document after you do this or the next time you open
the document it will open in protected view again.

Hello,

I consulted Microsoft Accessibility and my problem was not solved. I am
using the most current versions of Office 365 and Windows 10 Home.

I used to be able to remove Protected View from a given document using the
context menu in Windows Explorer and going into the file properties.
Alternatively, I could open the file and go under File then Info. I am not
finding this option in either place.

I do not want to remove Protected View for all documents I receive.

Thank you for any assistance.

If you have the file in word, alt f then the letter I then the letter e
might do the trick.

Also, using control s for save as will give you the ability to save it as a
new file.
You will have to tabe over when you press control s and select disabled
protected view, or something like that.

If the file is downloaded from the internet, go into contex menu, select
property and uncheck the unblock checkbox. If that still doesn't work, quite
likely the file has been set to protected by the author.

Two things to try.
Sometimes hitting f6 a time or two will let you enable editing.
Or, try, alt-f then i then p, and arrow down.
It could be Alt-f i o p.
I'm not at my computer right now.
