moderated Re: How to size and position pictures in PPT

 

Marianne,

Decided to do a little experimenting directly in PowerPoint (2013, in this case, but should still apply).

When I have a picture object selected, the arrow keys will move it in precisely the directions you'd expect.

The easiest way I can find that doesn't require either vision or the mouse to resize a picture is via the Size and Position dialog you can get to by bringing up the context menu when a picture object is selected.  You can either hunt for it or hit Z once the context menu is up.

You may even find using the position option in the Size and Position function preferable to the arrow keys.

In the size function, everything's expressed in units relative to the page size units you're using.  The same is true in the position dialog, and the figures are relative either to the top left corner of the picture or the center of the picture.  You can easily get into negative measurements showing up if "from the center" is being used even while the picture is still fully within the viewable area.  You do not get this (generally) with "from the top left corner" unless you've positioned the picture such that its top and/or left edge gets moved outside the viewable area.   However, it's possible to push either the bottom or right edge out of the viewable area without any clear signal that's happened if you're not aware of the picture size.

Marianne,

Download:  Keyboard Shortcuts for Microsoft Office Programs
then shoot to the MS site specific to PowerPoint that's listed in that document.

I believe they discuss the keyboard shortcuts for image manipulation.  Right now my internet service is being really, really cranky, particularly for downloading, so I cannot check this out (and, believe me, I've tried).  You may be able to determine if my memory is correct well before I can the way today's going.

moderated IE Mode in MS-Edge for sites that only work with IE

 

What follows is not JAWS related, but given the amount of concern I'm seeing expressed about the demise of IE11 next June I consider the following to be a public service announcement.

I was concerned for users of Windows 10 Home because all of the official documentation I could find regarding IE Mode for Edge indicated it had to be enabled via Group Policy Editor, which Windows 10 Home doesn't have, and on a site by site basis.

It appears that for Windows 10 Home users (and I haven't checked on my Pro machine yet) there is an option in MS-Edge settings to allow you to turn on IE Mode in Edge.  Another tech I know posted the following, and it checks out:

If they load "edge://settings/defaultBrowser" that's bring them to the IE mode config page. On mine it's got IE mode enabled by default on pages that require it but had to toggle reload webpage on if it needs IE to on.

I had the exact same default configuration under Windows 10, Version 21H1, in Edge.  It appears to make sense to throw that toggle related to allowing reloading on if you do routinely need to access a site, or several sites, that are now IE-bound and are likely to remain so.  And I'd advise you to do it and try it out, now, as it may end up putting your minds at ease.

You need to tell them you are blind and the documentation and Web form
is not coded in a way you can complete independently. Ask them to
help you complete the forms or appointment verification. I have found
they are glad to help and accommodate. A lot happens with open lines
of communication.

Hello Rahul
Sometimes JAWS will try to put in the tags when they are present, even if those tags are incorrectly placed as is so often the case. Just go to edit, accessibility, change reading order if you aren't satisfied with how JAWS has placed the tags. Of course, there are properly tagged PDFs but they are very rare.

Hi All,

I have not set a default reading order in Acrobat Reader for PDFs.
However, I tend to choose 'infer reading order from document' on most occasions. Sometimes, I choose 'use reading order in raw print stream', for those PDFs which have watermarks or are otherwise shabbily made.

Today, I was reading a book, and it chose 'tagged reading order' as the default reading order. The same PDF which was not being read by JAWS when 'infer reading order' was chosen' was read when 'tagged reading order' was chosen. Why is this so? Just curious.

Shirley,

Do you have a smart phone? Sometimes I find that a website that won’t work with JAWS will work well enough when on a phone. The opposite can be true, too.  As also noted, if you have a phone you can download the AIRA app  www.aira.io  or Bee My Eyes and get visual help.  I do this a lot when dealing with challenging websites.  I prefer AIRA for these tasks, since I feel better with their training and the tools they have to enlanrge the image from my phone camera. Yes, you can download Team Viewer to let the AIRA assistant actually connect to your PC and do the clidks for you, but I find that just holding the phone up for them to see and letting them guide my mouse pointer is faster for a quick task like  you are describing.  You can have 5 minutes of free help from AIRA every few hours, which would likely be enough in this case.  There is also a way to get free help via a JAWS promotion with AIRA, but the Call AIRA for Free button is so quick that I use that first.

 

Finally, this is a case where I would just waltz into the doctors office and tell them I was unable to use their site because it was not accessible for blind people.  Done that plenty of times in various places.

I'm with Bill White in that I have to believe that Details view has somehow been turned off for that folder.  I use Details view everywhere except my Photos library.

If you want all folders of the same type (General) to be displayed with Details view, after having ensured that the one you're in is currently in Details View per Bill's instructions, do the following:

1. Hit ALT+V,Y,O     View Tab/Ribbon, Options Control, Folder Options option
2. Navigate to the View Tab in the Folder Options Dialog that appears.  SHIFT+TAB, Right Arrow
3. Find the Apply to Folders button and activate it or hit CTRL+L
4. A dialog appears asking if you want all folders of the same type to have the same view as the folder you're in.  You will, of course, activate the Yes button.
5. You're back in the Folder Options dialog and can just activate the OK button to close it out.

I find this technique much easier than doing a piecemeal folder-by-folder approach over time.  I use it when setting up a brand new machine so that all my folders of the general type will all display with Details view.

AIRA is a special help service for those with a cell phone.  Alive agent is there using your camera and can see what you point the rear camera at.  The agent will then answer your visual questions like what color something is or read package directions etc.  You can also have them connect with your computer via Team Viewer and they can assist with reading things your screen reader is not reading.  There is a lot more, but I hope you get the idea.  They have a limited amount of free help, most is done with a subscription.  The benefit to them is that the agents are paid trained workers and there is some level of comfort with respect to your privacy.  Be My Eyes is also good, but these are volunteers and I would not allow these folks to connect to my computer.  I use them for things that privacy is not an issue like finding something I dropped and cannot find for example.  This latter service is free.

 

Check them both out and if interested they are both a good service for the visually impaired.  Smile.

I would recommend AIRA for anybody.  There are different plans and a discount for ACB members.  I do not know if there is a discount for NFB members.  Smile.  Keep in mind, you can stop the monthly fees at any time.  Things are very flexible.  I pay $20 monthly for 30 minutes each month.  This usually works fine.  I keep AIRA mostly for the computer and the cell phone apps and use Be My Eyes for noncomputer related tasks.  Just one idea how you can approach things.  Keep in mind that there are free zones with AIRA which means your time is free or there may be a set amount of free minutes.  An example of a free zone is in person Walgreens.  I do not need to get store help, just AIRA.  I also got 30 free minutes for Covid 19 related web sites.  In many months, I have a lot of free minutes in addition to the paid.  So maybe you try it out for a few months and if you find it worth paying for, then you will know.  Smile.

 

Good luck.

Thanks. Actually, I decided to go in and tell them the site was not accessible for me. The funny thing is that I explained that it might not work for me in the very beginning, and they said they would email the paperwork to me. I was okay with that because I thought I would just ask my daughter when she came to visit on Thursday or my friend who lives next door to help me fill it out. Well, the email the office sent was the same link that I had received via text. Although I restrained myself, I wanted to ask, “What about ‘I can’t access your forms’ don’t you understand?” 💭  

 

I keep wanting to look into AIRA, and maybe it would be good for quick things. Just so I don’t have to pay a fortune.

 

Thanks again.

Shirley,

Do you have a smart phone? Sometimes I find that a website that won’t work with JAWS will work well enough when on a phone. The opposite can be true, too.  As also noted, if you have a phone you can download the AIRA app  www.aira.io  or Bee My Eyes and get visual help.  I do this a lot when dealing with challenging websites.  I prefer AIRA for these tasks, since I feel better with their training and the tools they have to enlanrge the image from my phone camera. Yes, you can download Team Viewer to let the AIRA assistant actually connect to your PC and do the clidks for you, but I find that just holding the phone up for them to see and letting them guide my mouse pointer is faster for a quick task like  you are describing.  You can have 5 minutes of free help from AIRA every few hours, which would likely be enough in this case.  There is also a way to get free help via a JAWS promotion with AIRA, but the Call AIRA for Free button is so quick that I use that first.

 

Finally, this is a case where I would just waltz into the doctors office and tell them I was unable to use their site because it was not accessible for blind people.  Done that plenty of times in various places.

Hi all,

 

I’m seeing a new doctor, and the office insists I check in before my appointment. I have tried answering all the questions in the check-in page, but when I got to the question for me to verify my street address, I don’t see how to select the correct one—as there is no instruction. I tried simply selecting the same as I would something I wanted to copy, but it doesn’t seem to work. And when I click the button to confirm, I get the message that I have not selected my address. Help!

 

What do I do?

 

And yes, I know I’m not good with technology—but at least I’m trying—and I did try to find written information.

 

Thanks for your help.

Cheerfully,

 

Shirley Tracy

What on earth is AIRA?  How can it be recommended; if no one knows for what the initials stand.
