You are correct Mark, that is the podcast I was thinking about. I listen to so many podcasts that they sometimes run together in my limited brain size. Anyway, you may want to contact the sparrow and see if you can get a hold of Glenn Gordon.
One other thought that might help you with academic papers, there is a add-on for MS Word now that is called perrl. It will help you format in the new APA and MLA required formats as well as there is a wizard for creating annotations, references, citations, etc. Just something you may want to check out. a

Hello.

 

I’ve just noticed that after hitting control home to get to the bottom of a Microsoft Word file, and then hitting insert numpad 3,  I can no longer get information about the file, such as number of pages, etc..

 

When I do this, I now hear focus, zoom in, zoom out, zoom 100%..

 

Does anyone know what might have changed here, and how I can get my original document file information back?

 

I’m using Jaws 2021, Windows 10, and Office 365 here.

 

I wonder if this is the result of yet another Microsoft 365 update?

 

Thank you!

I use Google Meets for one of my dungeons and dragons groups. You don't need
a gmail account -- you probably however do need a google account. You can
register almost any e-mail address to use with a google account. It doesn't
have to be gmail.

It is true that HangOuts is going to be trimmed down significantly and for
video chats, calls and texting will be replaced with Google Meets.
Both are very JAWS friendly.

moderated Zoom meeting polls with JAWS

kneuber@...
 

Hi,

Is anyone having trouble accessing polls in Zoom with JAWS? I can get to the poll using F6 and then tab to the question, but I cannot get the cursor to move to the options. It says I have 3 options and that I am in a list item, but the up and down arrows and or tab key will not get me to the options. Zoom seems to work so well with JAWS except the polls. Has anyone else had a problem with this?

I’ve long since graduated from university. However, as an alum of two places, I’ve gone straight to the web designers when encountering problems on their websites. In my experience, they tend to be interested in solving accessibility issues. So two thoughts. First, if you can determine the people who design your university website, try them. Second, if you happen to know an alum who would respect the difficulty you’re having, maybe ask them to intervene on your behalf. Universities tend to respond to alum concerns because any money they give them is given purely voluntarily.

In speaking with disabilities services at my university, I was told to refer all my accessibility issues directly with Blackboard. She told complaining to the university is not getting any where. They need to be bombarded with complaints from the actual users. The complaint ticket that I submitted months ago through the university fizzled. Another ticket was opened again recently at my university by another student, but I am sure that will fizzle also. Single complaints from a school here, a school there is not currently working. Some how a conglomerate effort to get them to change their platform or revert it back to the pre-summer build is what needs to happen.

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.

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.

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.

Have you considered contacting the American Council of the Blind and the

issues? Also, filing an ADA complaint?
Since universities usually receive federal funds, they are supposed to make
sure all services are accessible.
I'd even consider contacting your Congress representatives and senators. If
anyone of them would just contact Blackboard, that might be enough to get
them moving.

"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a
Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation
in deep space, that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me
when I was young."
"Why, what did she tell you?"
"I don't know, I didn't listen."

In speaking with disabilities services at my university, I was told to refer
all my accessibility issues directly with Blackboard. She told complaining
to the university is not getting any where. They need to be bombarded with
complaints from the actual users. The complaint ticket that I submitted
months ago through the university fizzled. Another ticket was opened again
recently at my university by another student, but I am sure that will fizzle
also. Single complaints from a school here, a school there is not currently
working. Some how a conglomerate effort to get them to change their platform
or revert it back to the pre-summer build is what needs to happen.

Evening all, or whatever time it is  where ever you are.

 

The new release of 2021 from today, as advertised did the  job of

removing the clicking.

 

Nicely done.  I Do not know anything of the other parts of fixes, but

thought  I would let you know my input.
