Hi, Tammy. To cause pdf documents to not open in protected view,

1. Open Adobe DC Reader.

2. Go into preferences with control-k. JAWS lands on an item in a tree view.

If you have been here before, it will be the item you last opened. Arrow

down to Security Enhanced. Note that this is the item below "Security."

Then uncheck these two options:

Enable Protected Mode at startup

Enable Enhanced Security.

Note. When making changes in the Security Enhanced section, you will be told

that Adobe needs to be restarted, but you can wait to finish the other

changes first.

3. Now when you open a pdf document in Adobe Reader DC, documents will not open in Protected Mode.

Hello Claudia:

 

There is a marked difference between PDF documents as opposed to Word or Excel files. With regard to the latter two types of files, you can unprotect these files after they are opened in protected view. There is a way to set Word and Excel up so that these files do not open in protected view. If you want those details, let us know.

 

As for PDF files, you can set security up in Adobe Acrobat so that Protected View is not used. However, to be realistic, I can’t recommend a specific solution unless I can get a sample of one of those protected documents—something which your employer would not allow.

 

Sorry.

 

Kindly,

Hi,

 

I am using the latest version of JFW annual with Windows 11.

My job protects all documents, so every time I open a Word, PDF, Powerpoint, Excel file, protection is enabled.

There is somewhere on the screen to disable all features.

I need to do this, in particular, with PDF files.

If I can’t disable protection in order to convert my file from PDF to Word, can I use Jaw’s OCR feature to read the document?

If so, how do I do this?

On my previous job, Jaws would automatically ask me if I wanted this to be done.

Or will it not OCR the document, since the PDF is most likely accessible, once I enable all features?

Thanks.

 

Claudia

Greetings:

 

The steps below will prevent Word, Excel, and PowerPoint from opening attachments in “protected” view. You only have to do these steps once for each program. If you don’t care much about spreadsheets or slides, then you can just do the steps below for Microsoft Word.

 

Microsoft Word Procedure

 

  1. Open Word into a blank document.
  2. Press Alt with F followed by the letter t to go into the Word Options menu.
  3. Press down arrow about ten times until you hear JAWS say Trust Center.
  4. Shift Tab three times to land on Trust Center Settings and then press Enter to open up Trust Center Settings.
  5. Now, press the Down Arrow key to get to Protected View and start tabbing. Here, you will find three checkboxes. Tab to each checkbox and uncheck the box by pressing Space.
  6. Tab to and press Enter on the OK Button. Then, press Escape.

 

That’s all there is to it for Microsoft Word. If you don’t need to worry about spreadsheets or PowerPoint slides that are emailed to you as attachments, you can ignore the rest of this.

 

Microsoft Excel Procedure

 

  1. Open Excel into a blank document.
  2. Press Alt with F followed by the letter t to go into the Excel Options menu.
  3. Press down arrow about twelve times until you hear JAWS say Trust Center.
  4. Shift Tab three times to land on Trust Center Settings and then press Enter to open up Trust Center Settings.
  5. Now, press the Up Arrow key to get to Protected View and start tabbing. Here, you will find five checkboxes. Tab to each checkbox and uncheck the box by pressing Space.
  6. Finally, Tab to and press Enter on the OK Button. Then, press Escape.

 

That’s it for Excel.

 

PowerPoint Procedure

 

  1. Open PowerPoint into a blank slide.
  2. Press Alt with F followed by the letter t to go into the PowerPoint Options menu.
  3. Press down arrow about ten times until you hear JAWS say Trust Center.
  4. Shift Tab three times to land on Trust Center Settings and then press Enter to open up Trust Center Settings.
  5. Now, press the Down Arrow key to get to Protected View and start tabbing. Here, you will find three checkboxes. Tab to each checkbox and uncheck the box by pressing Space.
  6. Finally, Tab to and press Enter on the OK Button. Then, press Escape.

 

That’s it for Excel.

 

All done.

 

Cordially,

 

Curtis Chong

Hi Ward, I haven’t forgotten about your ask. There were some changes at Oracle so it took some time for me to track the right people. I hope to have an answer for you later today with documentation help as well.

I’ve also used this product and there are some interesting things to learn about the use of grids and the drill down functionality of F2 for an example.

Hi.

 

Not sure I really understood the question. It shouldn’t’ make a difference where you copy the address from. You have three options:

Mbasic.facebook.com – most stripped down version of facebook web available. Lacks many features, and many others are only half working. Facebook will not fix it.

M.facebook.com – I guess it still works somewhat, not sure, haven’t tried it in a while – a bit less stripped down nowadays but still static compared with

www.facebook.com – the full facebook web experience. Not necessarily pleasant to use, but should be workable with your modern screen-reader.

 

There’s also an app for mobile users. It’s huge for some reason and I don’t want it on my phone, so I have never messed with it. I do use the messenger phone app, but put it to sleep recently as it seemed to be sucking up battery life even when not in use.

There is no new version.

There is mbasic.facebook.com, which is even more stripped down, and it is also somewhat broken.

Facebook has no interest in maintaining this stuff. Best you can do is file a report that something is not working.

Funny that the disability suppot person mentioned google, too. Do they think google owns facebook now?

Hi Claudia,

Arrow down to the pdf that is protected. Press the application key or shift f10 on a laptop. Arrow down to either convenient OCR to Word with Jaws or convenient OCR with Jaws. Press enter and Jaws will begin. Depending on which one you pick will depend on which window opens with the text in it.

 

As for Word documents, if they are protected and you are sure it is safe, I will press control s to save it. A dialog box will pop up asking if you want to continue to save it and it will convert it to unprotected mode.

Thanks.

If an apps are pinned to your task bar they will be in an order. You should press windows key plus T to go to the task bar and then use your right arrow to go through them in order. I just looked at my task bar and Word is in the third position. I can launch Word from anywhere by pressing windows key plus 3. You should only pin those items you use most frequently since you can only use numbers 1 through 9. I have Word, Chrome, and Out look pinned to my task bar. Quite often your computer comes with apps already pinned to the task bar. If you don’t want those apps on the task bar you can unpin them. To do this go to your task bar and find the app you want to unpin. Press your application key or shift f10 and arrow down until you find “unpin” and press enter. That will change the number of all the apps that are pinned after it. I gave the example that Word is Windows 3 so if I unpin the app that is in the second position Word will move to that position and I will use windows key 2. I am sure this explanation is confusing so if you want to talk instead of emailing you can send me an email at marianne@....

I have also wondered what the advantages of are in pinning apps to the taskbar?

 

At work, they recommend that we do this, but what is the difference in pinning them there and pinning them to your Start menu?

Thanks.

If you have folder shortcuts on the desktop you don't get the Pin to Taskbar in the context menu option.

 

How you can get around this if you have a folder shortcut that you want to pin to the Taskbar,  try the following:

1. Highlight the desktop icon and press, Alt + Enter, to open the icon's properties.

 

2. When you open the icon's properties you'll be on the Shortcut page in the, Target field, and you want to add what's below, but read what's below character by character because you must include the space in what you type in.

explorer .

That's the word, explorer , followed by a space .

 

Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close the properties.

 

You should now get a, Pin to Taskbar, option in the context menu.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi, Rosie. Just put whatever you have on your desktop on the Task Bar instead, then delete the icons that are on your desktop.

I have never pinned an app to the task bar. I have shortcuts for most of my apps on the desktop. Would there be any advantages to pin my apps to the taskbar?

Hi.

 

Not sure I really understood the question. It shouldn’t’ make a difference where you copy the address from. You have three options:

Mbasic.facebook.com – most stripped down version of facebook web available. Lacks many features, and many others are only half working. Facebook will not fix it.

M.facebook.com – I guess it still works somewhat, not sure, haven’t tried it in a while – a bit less stripped down nowadays but still static compared with

www.facebook.com – the full facebook web experience. Not necessarily pleasant to use, but should be workable with your modern screen-reader.

 

There’s also an app for mobile users. It’s huge for some reason and I don’t want it on my phone, so I have never messed with it. I do use the messenger phone app, but put it to sleep recently as it seemed to be sucking up battery life even when not in use.

There is no new version.

There is mbasic.facebook.com, which is even more stripped down, and it is also somewhat broken.

Facebook has no interest in maintaining this stuff. Best you can do is file a report that something is not working.

Funny that the disability suppot person mentioned google, too. Do they think google owns facebook now?
