Hi Morey,

 

I assume you are in the US? Can you afford $69.99 a year or $6.99 a month? If you can you could subscribe to Microsoft 365 Personal, formerly known as Office 365 Personal. This allows you to download the full Office suite to your computer including Excel, Word, Outlook, Power Point etc. In addition you also get 1 Tb of OneDrive cloud storage. You can buy this from the Microsoft Store at the following link:

 

Buy Microsoft 365 Personal- Microsoft Store

 

Best regards,

Sieghard

Morning all. Looking for a Jaws friendly SpreadSheet Program to download. I tried Open Office but cannot even figure out how to get it to load. Tried Google Sheets and Jaws will not work in it either. Any other suggestions?

 

Currently using a version of Office 2007, but Excel keeps shutting it off in the middle of work saying it is not being offered anymore and it wants me to try "X number of days" trial.

 

So any other help appreciated. I cannot afford new Office Version.  I have JART on this tcomputer but how the heck does a person even get past the first page???

 

Thanks

Thanks Mike for this. I did not know this was a feature of the JAWS OCR. I tried it and is much easier than using Abby Fine Reader program. There is still a lot I don't know about JAWS.

Hi Pastor Gil,
 
Here's another option to use for scanning files.  I more often than not get better scans scanning this way.
 
How to scan files using a scanning device with the Jaws OCR feature.  Steps are below.  This will only work with JAWS2018 and newer.
 
1. Place whatever you want scanned with the OCR feature on your scanner.
 
2. Press the JAWS Key + Spacebar, then, O, for OCR, and press, A , for acquire.
 
3. Choose the scanner from the, Scanner & Camera combobox pop-up, tab to the, Acquire button, press the spacebar, and the scanner will scan the file using
the Jaws OCR feature.  It will then read it to you.  This is GREAT!
Note:  The shortcut keystroke to acquire is, Alt + Q.
 
To save the file you can export it to Excel or, after scanning select all the text with, Control + A, press, Control + C, to copy to the clipboard, then
paste the text, Control + V, into a text or Word
file and save.
 
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

So, when you invoke the, Insert + spacebar, then press the letter, O , then pressing the letter, A , your HP scanner isn't in the scanner and camera list?  What does show in the list of options?  Have you tried using left & right arrow keys as well as the up and down arrow keys?

I am coming late to this thread but for me personally I have used the free Webbie based Accessible RSS Reader for years available from I think from memory the Accessible Suite of applications at www.webbie.org.uk.

It has none of the bells and whistles of some modern RSS Readers regarding device synching but I still love its simplicity and ease of use with Jaws and NVDA.

Auto refresh of Feeds was also turned off years ago to increase its stability but this is also not a problem as manual refresh is built into loading the feed articles. S .

The application has 2 columns.

You cursor down your list of RSS Feeds in one column.

Press control R on any Feed and this will, as well as quickly refreshing the feed instantly jump you into the list of available articles from that feed in the adjacent column.

Cursor down and on each article you will hear an automatic preview of the first few lines of each article which will indicate whether you want to hear the whole article.

Press enter to load the web page referred to in that feed in your browser for the full article.

Close the web page to return to the RSS Reader.

Press escape in RSS Reader to return from the Article list to the main RSS Feed list.

Then you simply start over.

Cursor down to your next feed or use first letter navigation to find the feed you want.

On your next feed press Control R to Refresh and again jump into the next article list revealed and start anew in article reading.

Very simple to use and I would be lost without it.
