Subject: Removing font changes word JAWS2021

Hello,
I am using word office365 version 16.0.13530.20368 with JAWS2021 latest installed on my computer and today I was trying to remove some italics in a document I was working with.

I was told that I could go into the find and replace dialog with control h find the more button and tab to the format menu or press alt with o and choose the font option but when I try to access this menu JAWS does not seem to be able to access it to choose a font.
Does anyone know of a workaround or solution to this rather than clearing formatting entirely?
I know that one can also remove these style changes manually but since there are many places where this occurs in the document, I'd like to have the ability to use the find and replace option.
Thank you in advance for any responses.

I was also watching it. I was just wondering because I know Hotmail was discontinued in 2012 and I use this address for my groups.it looks like your msn account still receives the Aira list messages.

Maria,
If you know how to move a message, you should be able to mark the items not as spam. In the same context menu as move, you will find some thing labeled junk (I apologize that I do not know the shortcut keys). Once you highlight junk press enter. I believe four options will appear and what you want is to select never block sender‘s domain. A dialog box will appear and all you will need to do is tap through it until you select OK. At that point all groups that I owe should stay in your inbox instead of going to the junk email folder.
The other issue could be your own Internet service provider. I have an old Hotmail style email address and it will not except most groups that I owe addresses. Even if I do the above procedure, it still will not except new groups.io emails. As a result, I created another email address and most groups that I owe messages I receive go to that email without any issues.

Hi, I don't believe that this can be a Jaws problem. Normally you have to go into the email service and mark them not a spam. This can be done on the iPhone very easy. And I believe in outlook easy as well. I haven't done it on outlook.

First, disability student services offices provide services. They do
not make software decisions for a university nor do they respond to
civil rights complaints. You need to file a written complaint of
disability discrimination with the university office that handles such
complaints. The university needs to find a means of effective
communication that enables you to have the same level of access to the
information other students have, weather Blackboard is recoded or
other measures are taken. I will not go into the legal technicalities
here. If you have not joined the National Federation of the Blind,
they will welcome your membership and be happy to help with your
situation. I am an NFB member in Illinois and we regularly receive
situations like this.

the speech history feature in JAWS can also be used to copy the address. press insert+spacebar and then h, which lists the last 50 items that JAWS has spoken. navigate the virtual window with standard cursor navigation keystrokes, select, copy and paste the information where ever you want.

Virtualize the cursor with insert alt 2.

You can copy everything then.

By activating the Settings control, which is on the very same page as your inbox. Then, once that control is activated, the See all settings button.  Once you are in settings, going to the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab, then activating the Disable forwarding radio button, then activating the Save Changes button.

The default landing page when you open Gmail is the inbox page.

Assuming you are talking about tabs in web pages, and not the tab of a browser, these tabs are listed in the form fields area. I believe JAWS also has them show up as part of combo boxes.

Hi All,
 
Out today, this update fixes the popping sound heard for the, O, sound + more, read below.

32 & 64 bit download link:
 
 
What's new:
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2021.2012.57 (January 19, 2021)
This update addresses a few key issues that were reported shortly after the January 2021 release.
To download the latest release, click on the link above
 
You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.
list of 8 items
• A new feature was introduced earlier this month, designed to let a user change the volume of JAWS speaking or the system volume itself using a layered
keystroke: INSERT+SPACE, V followed by J for JAWS or S for System. Since this change, Eloquence users reported hearing Ticks when reading and typing, especially
around the letter O. We also had reports of the volume randomly changing when reading documents or web pages. These issues are now resolved.
•  Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+ALT+SPACEBAR was not starting the Voice Assistant in JAWS or Fusion.
• The JAWS voice commands to speak faster or slower now adjusts the speech in larger increments.
• Addressed an issue where JAWS was not reading table headings in Excel.
• Added a new JAWS Dictionary entry for "DocuSign."
• When spell checking a document in Word, resolved an issue where JAWS was not reading as expected when navigating by word through the text containing
the error.
• Resolved an issue where attachments were not being reported correctly in the Danish version of Outlook 2019.
• In the Italian version of JAWS, addressed an issue where the keystrokes to access the Braille and Text Viewer layer, as well as the Volume layer, were
not working as expected.
list end

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.
