Hi Marty and all.

I did  go to see if it was unchecked, it was not, so I unchecked it.

No Help.

I did contact Jaws Help desk, and they told me Excel was no longer supported by them or even Microsoft.  So I went back to Jaws 2020, or 2018, and they both still work with Office 2007, meaning all the keystrokes still work for me , at least.

My questions and all of the help given me will just have to be put away for now.

Will keep working in Excel with Old Excel, and Old Jaws for now.

Thanks all.

Hi all,

I feel a little silly because I can't figure this out on my own, but
jaws
2022 looks different enough that I'm stumped.

I have a focus 40 display and I want to add braille support to jaws on
my windows laptop. I used to do that on the jaws screen under file but
that doesn't appear to be the case any longer.

Could someone please give me directions?

Thanks in advance.

Morey,  If I remember right and you are the one having trouble editing in a cell in Excel, than you want to uncheck that box that says Allow editing in a cell.  I know that this sounds strange, but it will work.

Hi Morey,

You mentioned that you are using Excel 2007. I am pretty sure that is your problem. As recently as Office 2016, reading characters inside Excel often misbehaved in the ways you describe. Upgrading to Office 365 or 2021 would almost certainly solve your problem.

Hi all.

I went back to Jaws 2018, and Jaws 2020, keep them around for just this type of thing, and both of them work just fine, meaning the numpad keys for selecting text, etc.

Why not working in 2022...HMMMMM..

Will contact Jaws and see what they have to say. Probably something like I have to update Excel to work with the updated Jaws or something like that...whatcha think??

Thanks all for trying to help with my problem.

Will give the numlock thing a try.

In a given cell if there is a formula, the jaws/ctr/f2 keystrokes will
read formula, but, again, if try to edit the formula using f2 key,
cannot get it to move to any certain character.

same thing, meaning no key response at all

I tried using the jaws/1 to get key help and it says move to next character and move back to prior character in both cases, meaning in the arrow keys and on the numpad.

This is really confusing. Might have to call tech tomorrow and maybe they can help.

Hi Rahul,

I've tried replicating the jaws issue on Chrome and Edge with Jaws 20. I'm consistently finding the search edit  below the heading. Have you come across that with any other screen reader, in case you've tried it? Do check if your Chrome is up to date. 
There's a shortcut to open search edit box using the'/'  key when in focus mode just in case, please do check if that works. 

Kind regards

Mayank

Hi Everyone,

 

I would like to thank all of you for this simple way of retrieving a sender’s e-mail.  I knew about the Alt plus 1, 2, 3, etc., but I did not know about the history function using insert and the letter H.  It sure is a fool proof way of getting senders correct e-mail.  You can also use the copy and paste function to really have the sender’s e-mail correct.

 

Thank you for this GREAT tip!!!

I usually press Alt 1, then Insert Space then H, and I’m in Speech History, with the top line being the Email address. Then you can read it char by char.

 

What would be nice would be if you are in the Email field of outlook it would read it char by char, but it doesn’t. Then, you could press Alt 1 twice to get into the field, and read it char by char.

 

Maybe a suggestion for improvement FS?

 

All the best

Good Thought but no good. I did max the xcreen, and also restarted Jaws
2022/ but nothing got the numpad 6 key to work or move to the next
character.

One thing that might help, or not, after opening the cell, using the F2
key, pressing the home key, pressing the numpad 5 key does say the first
letter. If I press the delete key on that letter it does bring up the
next letter to delete and so on. I can then insert whatever needed and
press the enter key and all is well.

But sure would sure like the numpad 6 key to highlight the next letter
so that it can then be changed.

HMMMMMM

Thanks for input so far and good thoughts.
