Hi Randy!

 

I started seeing this recently as well.  However, I do not know the solution or the cause.  So, I am interested in the answers to this as well.

 

Bye,

Richard

Subject: Excel Issue

 

In the last week, I noticed Excel slowing down when I am entering and editing formulas.  It takes two seconds to say a character when I am arrowing through the formula.  I am using latest Jaws 2020 and latest MS office 365 downloaded to my computer.  Things get so slow that my computer basically freezes and I have to hit enter and give up editing the formula.

 

I have used Excel for a longtime and never had this issue until recently.  Does anyone have any suggestions for any changes I could make to improve the performance back to useable?

Hi Ralph!

 

The most important things for speed are 1) RAM and 2) an SSD.  Of course, a decent microprocessor is important as well; but anything equal to or greater than an Intel P5 are more than adequate - unless you are doing a lot of video editing.  Recently, I got a Lenovo P330 with 16 GB of RAM, a 1 TB SSD and a P5 processor.  The one I got is the “mini tower” form factor.  I like the Lenovo because of its reliability.  Less than 8 GB of RAM is underpowered, more than 16 GB of RAM is overkill.  As for a hard drive, you can probably get away with 500 GB, but 1 TB provides for many years of growth.  An SSD is far better than a HDD both in terms of speed and reliability.  This PC ought to take me many years down the road.

 

Nowadays, I see a lot of people doing things like putting their OS (Windows) on an SSD, and then all their apps and data files on a HDD; both drives being in their PC.  Yes, it does yield an uptick in speed.  However, we are talking about nanoseconds.  And, it is sort of tricky to setup, and may be a little less reliable (or at least not more).  For anyone other than an egghead, all that is overkill

 

HTH,

Richard

It’s looking like I will be searching for a new desktop computer.  I have not been able to figure out what makes the most difference in the speed or snappiness of the computer when using Jaws with typical applications.  So, I’d appreciate any information you techy types can pass along.

 

I know Ram makes a big difference.  What I don’t know is how much RAM is helpful and how much is overkill.

 

How much difference does multiple thread processing make?  How many threads are a good number to shoot for?

 

How much difference does an SSD drive make?  If they make a significant difference in speed, what files should be on them?

 

Being totally blind I don’t need a fancy display.  But, does a better video card affect the speed of the computer?

 

Are there other ways to increase the speed of the computer?

 

Thanks.

I've noticed this as well.  I think I can usually get to it by using insert B to read the window, but I don't have one handy to test.

 

There are things about chrome-based browser accessibility that don't impress me, which is one reason I keep Firefox around.

Hi,

 

Just wondering if anyone has seen this.

When a web site produces a dialogue box with an ok button on it, jaws only says “ok”.

Lets say the name of the web site is “john”.

If you go into the virtual viewer, you can see that the window contains “john says” and then the message, followed by the “ok” button.

I hope i am explaining this right. In order to see the full message that the web site has produced, you have to use the virtual viewer.

This is the same for jaws 2018 and 2020.

The same effect is produced using google chrome and ms edge (latest versions of both).

Internet explorer always read out the full dialogue box.

There seems to be a lot of small problems with chrome based browsers.

Is there some global setting i am missing to make the overall chrome experience better?

Any ideas?

Hi Lary/all,

It occurs to me very often, especially when students send their essays. Having a braille display, what I do is press the appropriate cursor routing button where the last character of the previous page is, and just arrow to the right once. It usually goes to the correct page, and there are no more such jumpings.

                                                            Hope this helps,

                                                            Takis

Hi,

Not sure if I’ve sent something to this list about this.

Something has changed.
I used to be able to arrow through a document and  read it from beginning to end.

Now I hear at the end of page 1 dialogue I’ve written, and it goes to page 3 and skips page 2 etc.

I think I’ve fixed this issue before but don’t think I kept that piece of information.

I do not hear this in Narrator at all.  I do hear it with all versions of JAWS on my PC.

Thoughts?

Hi, Larry. Make sure in the Layout tab that columns is set to 1.

 

1. Click the Layout tab.

2. Click the Columns button and choose Two.

 

Also, if all else fails, switch from Print View to Web Layout View.

 

1. ALT plus F, T for Word Options.

2. Arrow down to Advanced.

3. Under General, check the Allow opening a document in Draft view check box.

4. Press ENTER on OK.

5. On the View tab, select Web Layout View in the Document Views group.

Hi all, this is Michael and I'm sending this email just want to ask y'all on softwares that can convert Mp3 files to mp4. I'm trying to upload my podcast to Youtube but it won't allow me. Everytime when I attempt to upload a file with mp3 format, Youtube will say that the file format is invallad.  
I want to know is there a software that can convert mp3 file to mp4 or wave? 
Thank you and I'm hoping to hear from you soon.

Richard and all:

 

I have seen this issue before, but am not yet experiencing it here.  I currently use Windows 10 with Office 365 and the latest version of Jaws 2020.

 

I’ll save these instructions for future reference, but wonder if there is a way to do this globally, rather than for each individual document?

 

Thanks for any additional suggestions.

I just noticed that too.

With my wife’s help, I discovered two things.

One, make sure on the view tab you are on print view.

Also on the view tab, tab a bunch and make sure it doesn’t say Multipage after the zoom info.  If it does, arrow down to one page and hit enter.

I have had to do that with a couple of documents in the last few days.

Quite annoying.

Hi,

Not sure if I’ve sent something to this list about this.

Something has changed.
I used to be able to arrow through a document and  read it from beginning to end.

Now I hear at the end of page 1 dialogue I’ve written, and it goes to page 3 and skips page 2 etc.

I think I’ve fixed this issue before but don’t think I kept that piece of information.

I do not hear this in Narrator at all.  I do hear it with all versions of JAWS on my PC.

Thoughts?

Larry
