moderated How to get out of editing header mode

Zel Iscel
 

Hi all,

 

I get out of the header view by pressing alt and w, then e.

This takes you into draft view, where it’s very comfortable to work. Jaws commands to say page numbers work really well in draft view as well as other things.

Hope that helps.

Zel

Hi Shirley,

This is how I do it.

  1. Alt I to Insert menu then arrow down to header and footer submenu and open it(right arrow).
  2. Arrow down to page number and press spacebar
  3. There are two submenus there, “Top” and “Bottom”
  4. On the Top submenu, right arrow and then arrow down to plain number 2 then hit enter
  5. you can then type in your header then hit tab to get good spacing between the header and the numbering
  6. then I do an alt H and escape twice. I haven’t figure out how to get out of editing the header mode. This work for me. HTH

Hi everyone,

 

Can someone please tell me how to put numbers on a header that will progress with each new page. I have been able to type something on my headers, but adding a number is getting me frustrated. Everything comes out page 1. I know it can be done, but I haven’t tried it before with Office 2019—which is what I have now.

 

Thanks.

Mozilla Thunderbird is an email program that you run on your computer to send and receive email. It is not an email account.

 

You are still running Windows 7? This is unfortunate since Microsoft no longer provides any help for this. I can’t do much from here to help you except offer some advice which you are free to ignore.

 

Sorry can’t be of much more help.

 

Kindly,

Don,

That hasn’t happened to me yet on my Office 365, so I’m just guessing here.  The first place I would go is to the Display Folders button on the View ribbon and be sure that “Normal” is checked.  Press Alt V F to get directly to that button.

I actually like them, because if you hear a suggestion which is correct, you can just press enter, and it is pre-filled in.

 

For example, if I type S then T and hear steve@... , I can just press enter to fill it in. Saves a lot of keystrokes over time.

 

If there are more than one ST, you can down arrow to the one you want and press enter.

Hi,

This is caused by Outlook’s attempt to guess what you are about to type. The text is part of a UIA notification event. Although I don’t have specific solutions for Outlook, but at least from JAWS side, try turning off “accessible event notification” (found in settings Center).

Hi Curtis.

 

I think I’m running into the same problem. For me, it’s in the message body. If I’m not typing as fast as I can, I hear the suggestion, and hit TAB to accept it if it’s what I want. Most of the time, I’ve already started typing, and I miss the suggestion, so I’d also like it gone as well.

Hi Kevin,

 

Go to the closed dashboard link you want to hover over, then press Insert+Control+Enter.

 

JAWS should announce that changes occurred from a line number, then you can down arrow and read the items.

Hello, and route PC to Jaws. I even made sure jaws key and z was on. No matter what I couldn’t get the options under the item on the dashboard to show up. I went to the sites accessibility page and selected visually impaired. Couldn’t tell if it was selected. Went back to the page and everything is the same. Is there a way I can get Jaws to recognize the options below a item on the dashboard?

Cheers,

I’m using the most recent versions of Jaws2021, Windows10 and Chrome. I’m on a site where I wanted to access a option. It is on the dashboard.  I was told by help on the site to move my cursor and hover the item. I do and there no options that show up. I’m guessing they are in a drop down box Jaws doesn’t recognize. I tried using the Jaws cursor, route Jaws to PC

Thank you for the suggestion, but I wouldn't mind having something with some invoicing capabilities.

Hi Adrian,
 
Out of curiosity, have you ever tried switching your speech and sound scheme to see if there's a scheme that will do what you need?
 
If there isn't a speech & sound scheme to accommadate what needs to be done, well maybe modifying a speech and sounds scheme that turns UAI on will do the trick, if possible, when you need UIA turned on.
 
If you could modify a speech and sound scheme it would make what you need to do much easier by just changing the speech and sound scheme to a scheme that is set to run with UAI mode off.
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Subject: Re: Annoying Jaws word issue?

Here’s one drawback I discovered today. But first, Curtis, thanks for figuring out a solution for this problem. The solution to the one I’ll describe is equally simple, though it wouldn’t have been obvious but for your post.

 

One way to process Word’s track changes is to press JAWS key+z to turn off quick keys, then press the letter r to move from one revision or comment to the next. With UAI turned off, I still get each revision and comment. However, I don’t get an indication of a change at the beginning of a line.

Why does this matter? In a long document, I can move faster through track changes when JAWS informs me that a line has a change or, when JAWS is silent on the subject, that it doesn’t. when it doesn’t, without reading that line, I immediately go to the next one. In a short document, it makes little difference, but in a long one with hundreds of changes, like the one I’m grappling with now, it’s a big timesaver.

 

The solution? Turn UAI back on!

 

The drawback: I have to remember when UAI is helpful and when it’s not, and be prepared to turn it on or off accordingly.

With UIA turned off, JAWS no longer pronounces the new line character generated when you press shift with return.

 

So far, that’s the only down side I have seen.

Hi,

My sanity is saved!!! 😀

Thanks so much for this.

But, are there any major down sides to turning off this feature in Word? Just curious.

I can also confirm that the problem an be fixed by turning off the UIA feature in Word.

 

  • Press Insert v to go into Quick Settings.
  • Search for uia.
  • Arrow down to the actual choice and hit space to uncheck Use UIA in Word365 documents.
  • Pres OK.

 

Sincerely,

Hello:

In my situation, I leave UIA on except for those occasions where I need to run the JAWS Text Analyzer. This seems to work the best for my personal situation.



Kind regards,

Curtis Chong
