Hello Justin:

 

This question, as raised by you, is a bit vague. Thus, I need to make some assumptions.

 

First, I am assuming you are referring to File Explorer in Windows. Given that this is a JAWS mailing list, this seems to be a natural assumption on my part.

 

Second, I assume you don’t want to accidentally over-write a file when pasting based on what you said.

 

Given these assumptions, let me provide you with some basic information.

 

First, when reviewing a list of files using File Explorer, only one file is selected at a time. To be sure nothing is selected (i.e., getting down to zero files selected), simply press CTRL+SPACE. JAWS should say “not selected”.

 

If, for some reason, you have selected multiple files, simply move up or down one file, and the multiple selection goes away, keeping selected the file on which you are position.

 

HTH.

 

Cordially,

 

Curtis Chong

How do you unslect all files in a list.

 

Like so you can paste something into the list without messing up any of the files.

Hello,
I don’t know why my jaws doesn’t read numbered or bulleted lists while navigating. All it reads are the words skipping the numbered or bulleted lists. How can I tell jaws to read my numbered and bulleted lists.

One possibility is to refresh the page with insert-escape. I use the “Buy now” option and rarely the usual checkout procedure. I’m trying to remember if there’s anything else you need to confirm besides the credit card item. Could it be the delivery option? In my case, it’s usually checked by default, but it might not be in this case.

Hi, thanks to all who tried to go on that site and now I know it’s not my computer problem but theirs. The thing is that when I go to just the regular amazon.com, it lets me go through the process of checking out, but then when I get to the last page with the payment method, my credit card is checked, but the continue button is unavailable. I called amazon again and she admitted they were having trouble with people not being able to check out. Are any of you having that trouble? I only have one payment method on there and it’s already checked by default. Thanks. Judy & the girls

You can't, other than by going through the process, which is mercifully brief.  The same thing occurs under the most recent Feature Updates of Windows 10.

The good thing is that once you've gone through the 4 or 5 screens it presents, and tweak what's presented to your liking, it's not presented again.

Hi, all, I have been using amazon.com/access for years as I just find it to be quicker and easier to use. For the past two days when I  try to go on I get an error message. I can go onto amazon.com and amazon smile, but the access doesn’t work. I called amazon disability to ask if they changed anything and I was told they have not. I had a friend who is a computer sighted person look at things and he saw no reason for it not to be working as far as problems with my computer. We deleted browsing history, cookys but that made no difference. Has anyone else had this problem with the access page? Any ideas on what could be going on? Using win 10 and Jaws 2019 and Chrome browser. Thanks in advance. Judy & Libby

moderated Re: Question on how too adjust the font size in both word office 365, and outlook.

 

Before we go any further, are you asking about changing your default font size to a larger one permanently and for all documents (or messages) you create, or just changing the font size for certain messages either just before (easier) or just after (still not hard) you've composed them for specific recipients.

If it's a permanent change in Word you're looking for, this was just discussed on the JFW-Users Group in topic, setting David as the default font in word 365, specifically see message .

For a permanent change in Outlook, see the Microsoft Support Page, Change or set the default font in Outlook.

Since changing font size is part and parcel of changing font, and is the same no matter where you're doing the changing . . .

Worst case, take it up with Vispero technical support.
