moderated How to get Jaws 2019 to read table headers in Access 2016?

Russell Solowoniuk
 

Hi all,

I'm using Access 2016 as part of Office 365 at work with Jaws 2019 on a Windows 10 machine. I'm updating our inventory in an inventory database that I created. As I navigate through my inventory table, Jaws is not reading the column headers, so I am not certain I am in the correct field. I know that Jaws used to read the column headers, but can't seem to find a setting to turn this feature on. NVDA reads the column headers, but I'd prefer to use Jaws if possible.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Russell


moderated Re: Accessing files using Jaws and Googledrive

 

Quite a bit more information would be needed, as Google Drive files can be sent and accessed by a number of means.

Is the file being sent as an attachment on e-mail?   If so, the e-mail client should be able to download it.

Is it being sent to you via a link in an e-mail message?

Is someone sharing a folder and/or file on Google Drive with specific individuals?  If so, do you have Google Drive Sync installed on your computer which allows Google Drive content, including shared content, to be viewed within File Explorer just like your local files are.

Hello,

 

I received a file in Googledrives earlier today. Although I access the internet using Google, I have not worked with Google drives in terms of opening and reading files.

I would appreciate some direction in terms of keystroke commands and any additional information that would be helpful/valuable to know regarding navigation. .

 

Best, Justin

Hi all - yep Sieghard, I obviously did miss this (along with a few others by the looks) so sorry about asking the question again - need to learn how to search the site better I think!!!!  The unticking the preference in AcrobatDC Security aDvanced Settings did the trick. Its a home computer so no problems with admin right etc.
Apologies for the long delay to say thanks to all - in Western Australia, I am in bed asleep when you are all getting up and answering questions in the US and Europe.

Thanks again

Re: jaws cursor follows the pc cursor

Hi Net bat,
 
Okay I think I got it figured out.  Press the, Control, Insert + Numpad minus key, so Jaws reports, the Jaws cursor will not follow the Pc cursor, now hold the, Control & Insert keys down together and tap the Numpad minus key twice quickly.  You should now hear the Jaws cursor will not follow the PC cursor.  JAWS will remember this setting until you decide to re save it

Re: jaws cursor follows the pc cursor

Larry Wayland
 

In Jaws 2019 and maybe later versions, you press the insert + control + the minus key on the numpad.  To make it stay put while holding down the insert and control press the minus key twice rapidly after you get it set where you want it.
