Greetings:

 

I can confirm that this is a problem of late. This feature used to work, but at some point, it all failed in terms of jumping quickly from one page to another in Acrobat Reader DC.

 

Sometimes, in desperation, I will copy the entire thing into Word.

 

Cordially,

 

Curtis Chong

Subject: unable to get JAWS to read a different page than the one I'm on

 

Hi,

 

There's probably an obvious solution to this, but I'm not finding it!

 

Here's an example:

I'm on page 1 of a pdf.

I use CTRL+Shift+N to go to another page, for example, page 40. 

The popup appears and I enter page 40 in it.

When I click Okay, I am taken to page 40.

However, when I hit INSERT+Down Arrow or the Down Arrow on page 40, 

JAWS jumps back to page 1 and reads that instead.

 

This is happening in all pdf's and the page numbers above are an example. If I started on page 40 and wanted to go to page 80, JAWS would return to page 40.

 

How do I get JAWS to read the page I want?

Best regards,
Laura Roberts

Absolutely correct.  I was willing to assume we were not talking about the media libraries, which do have formats specific to the media type.  Even Photos display as thumbnails by default, though if you change them to details view you do get the size shown.

Windows does a good job as far as "presenting what most would want to know" based on what library a given thing is stored in.  Otherwise, it uses the folder settings for documents or general items.

If you open the Properties for a given folder (or library) and look at the Customize tab the first item is the "What kind of folder do you want?" dropdown which shows the various options for presentation.  Were you to want to change media files to "show like regular" you would change from audio/video to general or documents.

Hi all,

I should add that if you are in a folder with primarily audio files like music, size is not part of the details view default for individual files. Things like artist, etc. will appear. You will need to change this in the add columns part of the View tab of the ribbon, assuming you are using Windows 10. In Windows 11, I assume it is in the View submenu or whatever they call it there. Again as Brian says, a bit complicated to change this.

moderated Re: Question about adjusting the zoom using outlook with office 365.

Van Lant, Robin
 

Albert,

The more I look at this, the more I don’t think the zoom level will matter to you.  When I’m in my inbox, I’m now hearing my zoom level is set to 10%, too.  Since I have enough vision to see the screen a bit, I can tell you that the print is not microscopic and I really cannot tell the difference.  Yesterday my zoom said it was 90% and it doesn’t look any different today.  If you want, you can remove this item from what JAWS reads you in the status line.  Use F6 to go to the status line, then hit the application key and arrow down to uncheck the Zoom level and Zoom slider from the status line.

Good evening everyone, 

 

Is their a way that the zoom in outlook with office 365 can be adjusted so that it says, zoom 100 percent?  I’m asking because, mine says zoom 10 percent. Should it  be set too 100 percent and if so, what’s the keystroke too adjust it?

Indeed, but that's not the default state, and I'd presume that someone would know if they've removed it, as it's not a simple matter to do (as it's the reverse of your instructions to add it back in).

Thanks for the instructions, though, they're useful for tweaking of whatever column or columns you want to show/hide.  And Size is indeed just Size.

Hi.

 

The file size won’t show up in details view if it was removed from one of the columns in the sort options.

 

To check to see if it’s checked, in a folder in File explorer, have nothing selected.

 

Hit either SHIFT+F10 or the applications key.

 

Find the sort option in the menu, and select it.

 

Now go down the list of what’s available to sort by, and see if size is there. If not, select the More option.

 

Now, hit TAB to get to the items that can be checked. First letter navigation works here, so either look for Size, which I think it is, or File Size if it’s not, and check it.

 

If you want to put it in another column than the last one, you can do this in the above dialogue.

 

Once done, TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

 

If all goes well, the size of items will be there.

 

Hope this is helpful.

 

Kevin and Jilly

Nor do I.  File Size is presented in File Explorer using Details View in every version of Windows I'm familiar with up through Windows 11.  Folders do not have sizes presented because the folder itself doesn't have a size, strictly speaking, but the contents of the folder do.

Hello Barbara and David, that is a good way to see ithems size info, but it's alot of data! Howeber it's a good alternative.

 

I know what can you do for solving your problem, Barbara, so my Windows is in spanish.  I'd like to guide step by step sso I don't know exactly how do it propperly.

 

You should go to Folder options (or File Explorer settings?) and get to View tab (or symilar, I really sorry!).  Now you can find a tree view with various options, aproximately 21 options, using tab key and after moving down with down arrow.

 

Well, there should be any option called something symilar to "Show info about file size in folder recommendations".  If you find this option, check it is on.

 

Let's it!  Now you can "apply changes" and press OK.  After this you can see "file size" as just as you want, using right arrow over selected ithem.

 

Greets!

First, thanks for your help in trying too hele me figure out my question regarding that message windows problem that I’m seeing.   Unfortunately when I hit the Jaws key and the number 3 key, It says the following. Connectivity too  your server connected   Zoom out, zoom in,  zoom  10 percent.  Unfortunately, when I hit the alt H.key,too try and get too the message window,  there is no message window where I can set the zoom value too 100 percent.

 

But thanks for trying too help, and for your suggestions.

I am going to presume the question is referring to the message reading Window.  If so, try the following:

1. Hit ALT + H, Q1  [Message Ribbon, Zoom]
2. The Zoom Dialog opens showing 3 preset zoom percentages:  200%, 100% (selected by default), 75% along with a control box that allows you to enter or use the up/down arrows once it has focus to set a custom zoom.  There is also a checkbox for "Remember my preference," which I'd probably only check were I using some custom zoom level.
3. If you just want the 100% default, activate the OK button.

Done

moderated Re: Question about adjusting the zoom using outlook with office 365.

 

I did forget to mention that it is very likely, if you're currently zoomed to any level but one of those three, that the level will likely be focused on that custom box when you open the Zoom Dialog.  If it is, be sure you jump back to the 100% radio button and activate it before hitting OK.  If you last zoomed to either 200% or 75% then the respective radio button for one of those values will likely be selected.

moderated Re: Question about adjusting the zoom using outlook with office 365.

Van Lant, Robin
 

I’m not sure if it matters, if you are not seeing the screen.   If I do insert down arrow while in my inbox, I do hear mine saying Zoom = 100%, but cannot figure out where that is adjusted.  When I did a web search on zoom in outlook, it talks about adjusting the zoom while in a message. If  you compose a new message, hit Alt, O, then Q to open that dialog. The instructions also say to escape out of the message once you make the adjustment to save that setting for all future messages.   However, this doesn’t’ seem to fix the question I think you are posing. In my case, I opened a message, set the zoom level to 75%, exiting out and the insert page down command still reads 100%.   Give it a try on your end.

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.
