Hi, you said press windows key and then plus.  That doesn’t work for me. If I press windows then have to do shift equals sign to get plus it doesn’t work. Judy

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to insert emogees into email messages using Jaws? I know

Jaws reads them and so if possible I'd love to know how to put them into email

messages as writing the word smile or whatever feels weird. If sighted people

can put them in then there should be a way for blind people to do it too. Using

latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows 10. Hope someone can help,

Madison

Hi, James. I think the problem is due to the fact that JAWS must be
installed first, followed by OpenBook, not the other way round.

Greetings:

The install requires you to be online. I assume you were?

With JAWS 2022, the OCR component was installed when I invoked an OCR
function. But, of course, I understand you to be using JAWS 2021. Can you
run a repair while ensuring your computer is online?

Hello Madison.

Haven't really bothered with this (although I don't' really mind inserting
the odd one in SMS on my phone) but, you should be able to access the
windows emoji keyboard. I believe windows plus . (period) is the keystroke.
You should be able to arrow through the lists and categories and select one
you want.

Hi again.

I and another person said ‘ to create a new Outlook folder try Control-shift-E’ after you have selected the higher level folder you want sub-folders under.

 

Isn’t that the answer to the original question, rather than all this activity on control-shift-N, which creates a new Note?

 

Just trying to assist.

Check to see if you have a desktop shortcut for Note and it has CTRL + SHIFT + N defined as its shortcut.

If you do, Windows itself will always process CTRL + SHIFT + N first, fire up Note, and then focus returns to File Explorer.  This, of course, happens very quickly.

But if you have assigned that key sequence to a desktop shortcut, or somehow otherwise defined it so that Windows has it in its "list of shortcuts I process," it's always going to do whatever it is it's assigned to by Windows.  Windows has first dibs on any keyboard shortcut, your screen reader second, and your application program (and File Explorer is an application) third.

Well, the Microsoft store may at some point offer third party browsers, as they are now opening to desktop apps, but as far as I know, as of now they don't.
Doesn't matter to me; I hardly use the store at all anyway.
You can go to the respective websites of each browser to download them.
Firefox can be gotten from mozilla.org.
And chrome is, of course, available from Google's website.
I really don't think it's a big deal what browser(s) you decide to use. So longa s they're regularly maintained, and it works well for you, just go for it. There isn't really a whole lot of difference between them, especailly the Chromium-based ones that make up the majority nowadays. But even going from Firefox to Chromium -- I don't think that, from the perspective of most users, there's going to be a huge difference in your experience. Small things here and there, sure, and maybe that's why you will move between two browsers on a regular basis.

Don,

Then, in the start menu, whether you get to it via searching for it or whether there is a permanent shortcut in the start menu itself, look at the properties for Note.

Somehow, somewhere, something has assigned CTRL + SHIFT + N to make Windows invoke that program.  It is possible, but highly improbable, that this could be the result of a corruption in Windows itself, and they do happen on occasion.

But Windows is never going to fire up a program when a keyboard shortcut is issued unless that shortcut exists in Windows own list of shortcuts I handle.  The most common way of adding to that list is either during the installation of a program or by creating a desktop shortcut and then assigning a keyboard shortcut to that desktop shortcut.

Check to see if you have a desktop shortcut for Note and it has CTRL + SHIFT + N defined as its shortcut.

If you do, Windows itself will always process CTRL + SHIFT + N first, fire up Note, and then focus returns to File Explorer.  This, of course, happens very quickly.
