I use control + the arrow keys to get to the end of data.
BTW, if you do insert + H in Excel, you will get a whole bunch of useful keystrokes.
Also try insert + W.

There are no headings in excel nor can you navigate by first letter navigation.

Idf  you want to go to the end of data in a column you can press the "End" key followed by "Down Arrow". For example, if you had data in column A and in rows 1 through 50 and let's say you are in row 1. If you press End followed by Down Arrow you would instantly jump to the last row where there is data, e.g. Row 50. If you have data in row 1 through 50 and then you have a blank row and you again have data in rows 52 through 100, pressing End + Down Arrow in any row between 1 and 49 will take you to row 50, the last row which has anything in it. You can then down arrow to row 51 which is blank, down arrow again to row 52 which is the first row of the next block of data and if you then press Ent + Down arrow you land in row 100 which is the last row with data in that section.

The same applies to going left to right, if you have data in Row 1 and columns A through J and you are in column A you can press End + Right Arrow and you jump to Column J which is the last column with data.

Hello Everyone:

 

If I have data in a column, is there a way to quickly navigate with first letter navigation or can I use a heading marker similar to using headings in Microsoft Word to jump from one section to another without needing to have blank cells in the column?  Hope my question makes sense.

 

Thank You,

Thank you for these useful key commands for Excel.

moderated Re: Navigating Microsoft Excel with JAWS 2021

 

Response disclaimer: I'm using Excel 2010 on a Windows 7 computer so if my suggested keystrokes yield differing results than you get, this might be the reason.

 

I'll add to Sieghard's excellent explanation by encouraging you to consider using Excel's powerful auto filtering feature. Auto filtering provides a way to quickly find or narrow down your search if you know the content of the column you're examining and wish to filter it by keyword or other options depending on the column's content. Here are the steps to do this:

 

1.   Place focus in the cell which is the column heading of the column you wish to filter.

2.   Press ctrl + shift + l to turn filtering on. Each column heading in the row where focus is will become a drop down box for accessing the auto filter settings.

3.   You should probably press ctrl + s to save your spreadsheet at this point so that auto filtering will remain turned on and in case you mess anything up when playing with auto filtering.

4.   Press alt + down arrow to open the filtering list of choices. I would caution you against executing any of the Sort options and instead use the Text filter option. The caution against sorting is because if you have blank rows anywhere in the spreadsheet, sorting it can mess up your data. You can access the text filter setting from the column heading cell of your column of choice by pressing alt + down arrow as previously mentioned and either arrowing down until it is announced and right arrowing over to its submenu choices or by pressing the f key.

5.   The Text filter has many choices including Equals, Does not equal, Begins with, Ends with, Contains, and Does not contain. I prefer the Contains filter because choosing it will open a text box where you can type a keyword you think might be included in the column text you are filtering/searching.

6.   After typing the keyword in the presented text box and pressing enter, Excel will display all the rows immediately below your location that contain the keyword you entered.

7.   After using the Auto filter, make sure you return to the column heading cell of the column you filtered and press alt + down arrow to open the filtering choices, and arrow down to Clear filter from Windows function and press enter to remove the filter and display the complete unfiltered spreadsheet again.

8.   You might not save the spreadsheet when done in case your data was inappropriately altered while filtering.

 

Auto filtering is smart enough to know the contents of the column you are filtering and present applicable choices when you access its filter options. For example, if the column you are filtering is formatted as numerical, the filter choices presented when you alt + down arrow in the cell with its column heading will include options such as equals, does not equal, is greater than, is less than, etc.

 

Like everything, getting good with auto filtering takes practice and I encourage you to start playing with it to get that practice. If you would like a sample Excel file to practice with, I have a two-column spreadsheet containing Windows 10 run commands where I've turned on auto filtering and I'll be happy to share it.

moderated Re: identifying short cut keys

 

The only keyboard shortcuts that should be available (and I'm ignoring Windows keyboard shortcuts that "work in every application, when the context for their use exists") is either from the software developer, and these are generally documented, your screen reader, or a script/add-on to your screen reader.

They also generally need to be web searched for as separate entities, e.g,, [Microsoft Word Keyboard Shortcuts] versus [JAWS Word keyboard shortcuts].  Stick whatever is appropriate, e.g., Quickbooks or Facebook App or Win10 Mail App, etc., for "Microsoft Word" and the principle still applies.

If you're looking for keyboard shortcuts for virtually anything Microsoft produces, using that above format in the web search engine of your choosing almost invariably turns up Microsoft's own page of those shortcuts somewhere in the first five results returned, and very often the first one.  But since web search results in every search engine I've used are returned as headings, you can make quick work of reviewing the first few results and, if necessary, adjusting your search terms to either exclude certain words with the minus operator immediately before a term, e.g., -case, force inclusion of certain terms, e.g,, +font, or just adding some additional search terms to narrow down your results because you started with too few, and got a lot of garbage back as a result.

Hello everyone! in this article  I will  speak a little about
accessibility and usability, specificly on Whatsapp Web, and sharing a
script, users of screen
reader, can work on   Whatsapp by the computer with more autonomy,
practicality and confidence.

The informations about the script and its installation are bellow: :

To use the scripts, it is necessary to have the extension Tampermonkey
for your browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Microsoft
Edge ou Safari).
After that, just access the script, which will be recognized by
Tampermonkey, and click on install.

WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility

After installing the script for Whatsapp Web,
WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility, when accessing the app, you must
wait for the application to load and then
use the shortcut ALT + S. If the script is deactivated, the message:
Script activated successfully will be displayed; if the script is
already activated,
an alert will be given with the message Script disabled. When you
deactivate it, all elements and shortcuts created by it will be
removed, except the activation
and deactivation shortcut.

Added elements and labels

With WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility enabled, the following
modifications will be applied:
• Before the panel with the chat list there will be a level 1 header
H1 to facilitate navigation via the screen reader, by pressing the 'h'
key or the
number '1' in the navigation mode;
• After opening a chat, at the beginning of the contact / group area
there will be a level 2 H2
header, with the label "Active chat + CONTACT / GROUP NAME", which can
be accessed by pressing the 'h' key or number 2 in browse mode;
• The emogi buttons will be labeled above the message writing field in
the footer;
• After the message writing field, there will be a button with the
label "Record voice message" if the text field is clear, or "Send text
message" if it
is filled;
• When you click on the "Record Voice Message" button, a "Cancel
recording" button, the recording time and another button with the
label "Send voice message"
will appear below the message field;

Shortcut keys

After enabling WhatsappWebWithMoreAccessibility, the following
shortcut keys are available:
• ALT + a: focus on the options for choosing the type of attachment to
be sent in the active chat;
• ALT + B: focus on the search field and label it as "Search chat and
contacts ...";
• ALT + C: focus on the chat list;
• ALT + E: puts the focus on the message writing field and labels it
"Write a message (name of the active chat)";
• ALT + L: opens an options box to select the language of the script
(Portuguese, English or Spanish), after pressing the 'enter' key in
the desired option,
the script messages will be in that language;
• ALT + M: puts the focus on the message list of the active chat;
• ALT + S: activate and deactivate the script;
• ALT + T: speak the title of the active chat.
NOTE: sometimes NVDA does not go into focus mode automatically when
using shortcuts, so you may need to put it in focus mode with the
shortcut NVDA + space
bar. Other keys can be configured as the NVDA key, but by default it
is 'Insert'.

That sounds like a Fine Reader setting, or performance issue.
Does Abby Fine Reader provide support?
When I did a lot scanning with OpenBook, things like that would happen depending on the layout, mostly with table of contents for me. I did not scan that much with footnotes.
Jaws is just reading what it is given.

Hello, I’m using the most recent versions of windows10 and Jaws2021. Since the last update to Windows all PDF files I open occurs in MS Edge. Is there a way to setup so the PDF files open in Acrobat reader?

 

Thanks,

 

Kevin

Hi, Kevin. Yes, there is.

 

1. Find a pdf file on your computer.

2. With the file highlighted or selected, press ALT plus ENTER to open properties.

3. Press ENTER on the Change button in properties.

4. Choose Adobe Reader from the choices.

5. Press ENTER on Apply, and again on OK.

 

Now pdf's should open in Adobe reader.

Hi,

  Yes, this is a new issue for 2021.  JAWS just quits.  In my case it occurs with Office and a Bible software program.  More interesting is that JAWS does not auto restart.  I have to use the hot keys to get speech again.

 

I am sure the issue is also frustrating for JAWS developers as there are so many configurations and software interactions that it is impossible to prevent all failures.  Yet I hope that future versions will address crashes that occur with mainstream, standard, programs.

I uninstalled Jaws2021 and reinstalled it and the crashes still occur. FS provided me with scripts that update the registry to capture the crashes. I then use FS support to email FS the files. EVerytime one occurs I send them an email. I want them to see this is a problem.

Jaws has a talking installer which is what kicks in if you uninstall it. I Have never found a problem with uninstalling Jaws while Jaws was running, but of course turning it off and starting Narrator is a very valid way to also do this.

Why would you need to uninstall Jaws while it is running.  You can turn  on narrator and uninstall Jaws.

Hello,

I sent out an email last week about Jaws2021 constantly crashing. I called tech support, they tried a few things and then said I need to email tech support. I sent an email and got the reply “call 727-803-8600 as there are to many variables. I sent back an email saying I already talk to live support and they told me to email support. Okay now what? Is it possible to uninstall Jaws while it is running and then reinstall it? Anything else I might want to try? Sounds like tech support doesn’t want to do anything.

Thanks,

Kevin

Hi, Addison. Maybe one of the settings for Password is not set in settings? Other than that, I don't know why passwords would not save for you.

Hi, Addison. After you take the steps Brian suggested, what I do is, after logging into a site, press F6 (Function Key 6 on your computer. This brings up the save password dialog for me in Chrome and Edge. Then, if I am not focused on the "save" button, I can TAB or SHIFT plus TAB to the button, and press ENTER. This saves my password, if, indeed, the password can be saved. Some sites don't allow saving of passwords.
