shift f10 seems like a lot of extra steps. A page can have lots of links and I was hoping there might be a setting in jaws that would say a link is external. It would give quick cues when navigating through a page quickly. I know it will say same page link for links that go to a spot on the page.  Maybe jaws just does not have that feature

moderated Re: Outlook Address book

 

Vaughn,

              Just so we are both crystal clear, what are you referring to when you say Outlook?  Certain things suggest the standalone email client while others suggest Outlook.com.  You also say a couple of things that seem like they refer to the Windows 10 Mail App, which is different from either any Outlook client or Outlook.com.

               Can you identify what Outlook you're using, including version, e.g., Outlook 2016/2019/365, if it's the client or Outlook.com?  Is the Windows 10 Mail App in the mix somewhere?

                I have to know where to look, precisely, in order to give you the answers you seek, if I can do so.

Vaughn Brown
 

Hello, Brian,

 

Thank you. I explored Outlook and think I can better explain my goal.

 

Keep in mind that I am speaking of Win. 10. Apps are similarly named in Windows and Apple devices.

 

I noticed that Mail has somehow downloaded my contacts. I have an account in Mail for 2 Gmail accounts and an .edu account. I am able to comfortably switch between accounts and able to use address books from each one.

 

In Outlook the setup is similar regarding accounts. I am receiving emails for each account. Figuring that my university account was the default I ended up removing “my outlook data 1” and defaulting that data to my personal Gmail account. What it looks like a list of address books but no substance. I am truly perplexed as the Mail app automatically downloaded my contacts whereas Outlook did not.

 

I realized that MS Exchange is for school and work. I also wonder if my Windows 10 being an academic version has anything to do with the settings. It seems to be influencing other computer settings. But I personally purchased Office 365. And registered my personal email for that 365 account.

 

I read and attempted the whole webmail for Gmail and export my contacts but during the process I realized that this didn’t feel right.

 

Pardon for the long email but I wanted to be clear. I prefer Outlook as I find it more accessible.

 

Look forward to your response.

 

Kindly,

 

Vaughn

My guess is that this is controlled by which account is set as your primary/default account if you have multiple accounts set up in Outlook.

Try ALT+F,I,S,A  (File Tab, Account Info, Account Settings dropdown, Account settings item).  At this point the account settings dialog will appear, and I'm going to presume you're familiar with it.  Take a cruise through the account list and see if the one currently set as default is that Exchange account.  If you then change the default account to Gmail it's likely to use the repositories associated with that as "first port of call."

Kandace,

 

You didn't mention what version of Excel you're using but if you have a Bookshare subscription, you might also look at its website. The book Excel 2010 for Dummies by Greg Harvey is very well done and has at least one chapter on pivot tables. I expect he might have updated the book for later versions of Excel.

It is possible that Outlook has become corrupted however I suspect that something more is going on behind the scenes.

You can do some testing:

  Does the issue occur if you boot up and just have JAWS running?

   Does the issue occur with JAWS and another program and not OutLook?

   May want to run a scan to rule out malware or virus.

No, suggestion was not my point.  Just making a point that what is easier for some may not be for others and for me the use of the right mouse keystroke is helpful at times in addition to the application key.

-
Not exactly.  I have not encountered any real difference with right mouse click versus using the Context Menu/Applications Key or SHIFT+F10.  But, I have encountered problem after problem with emulated left mouse click.

As I noted, on a laptop one shields the mousepad portion that controls mouse movement, or on a desktop one masks the laser on the underside of the mouse itself (or removes the ball, if you have a really ancient mouse), to avoid unintentional mouse movement.  Then, if you have focus (sometimes requiring routing of screen reader to PC, but not always) you can simply left click instead of going through the gyrations with emulated left click, which I often find does not work.

Having been in "the accessibility business" for a very long time now I do not understand why mouse use with a mouse suitably modified to prevent accidents is not encouraged more often.  I understand why one would not ever want to use an unmodified mouse/mouse pad, as movement of the pointer can and often does blow what you're attempting to do out of the water.  But if you make things such that the mouse no longer controls the pointer, it gives you the two, real, hard mouse keys for use when you need them.  The modifications are simple and result in another arrow in the accessibility quiver.  And an arrow one need only use if one so chooses when it makes life easier.

          That's fine.  Also, if you so choose, we could set up a Quick Assist session at some point so that I can watch your screen and what's happening.  It's literally a matter of my seeing what's going on, as there are "context clues" that sometimes occur that are not picked up by a screen reader.

          I like what Joseph Lee once said to me about how those of us who can see process screens in their entirety, as a gestalt, and filter out and focus upon things without even realizing we're doing it, and it's absolutely true.  No screen reader, no matter how good, is capable of that kind of processing and sometimes it's the key to figuring out why something odd is happening and how/whether one can get around it or not.
