Hi Bill,

I have this problem too but I use the Alt W and then press 1 to get it to display a single page at a time.

I don’t know what I am actually doing when I do this but it works. I just wish I could get all multi page documents to display in this mannor all the time.

I wish it would be the default. I am using Office 2010 here at work.

Is this what you are doing with your steps?

Will your steps set that behavior as the default for all multi page documents?

Thanks

Shannon

Hi list,

 

When down or up arrowing in a Word document, the cursor skips the next page and moves to the other page, for example from page 1 to page 3. The only way how I can access the next page is to right or left arrow if I know that I am approaching the bottom of the page.

 

I am facing this issue in my workplace, where I am using the latest JAWS with MS Word 2010, whereas I am not facing this issue on my personal computer, using the latest JAWS with MS Word 2016.

 

I am looking forward to your advice.

 

Cheers,

Gezim

Bill White <billwhite92701@...>
 

You’re very welcome, Shannon. I’m glad I could post something that would help you.

 

I’ll explain one situation where opening the email in the browser is very important. Sometimes I get an email which says it’s from my bank. The link doesn’t give the URL. Instead, it just says, click here. If you open the email in the browser, Press the applications key or Shift plus F10, and arrow down to “copy shortcut, it will put the actual link into the clipboard. Then you can paste that link into a text file in Notepad, and look at the link to see if the website where the link is directing you is really part of your bank’s website before you click on the link. Sometimes, knowing where the link already took you is too late to avoid a virus or malicious software.

Hi Bill,

I did it again and paid attention this time. It is opening the .mtl file in excel. I went to the section of settings and looked for the default apps. The file type .mtl was set to excel for some reason. I changed it to internet explorer and it works as advertised!

It is nicer to read some mail this way. I often hear the phrase If this message doesn’t work well to click here but I can never find where “Here” is. I thank you for the keystroke to make this happen.

Sometimes I wish it could just be the default for html messages to open there.

I did try and couldn’t get it to work. At least I thought it didn’t work. What is odd is the headings are two rows up from where the actual value is read. So it says the number in the cell when I’m down in a lower cell in the same column. Is there a way to check if the title and range are setup?

Hello, I have a spread sheet setup with many columns. Then down 300 rows is a total row. For some reason when I’m on the total row which has a formula for all values in the column, Jaws is reading the value in the second row of the same column before it reads the actual value in the cell. Is there a setting in Jaws causing this or is something in Excel I need to change?

You and I are both using desktop layout and pressing the alt key activates caps lock.  Another person mentioned pressing caps lock twice, which mustbe be the method in laptop layout, as that does nothing on my configuration.  Glad to have clarification on this.  I must have had caps lock on during the login problem earlier and did not know to press alt caps lock to release it.  I'll try this next time I'm at a login screen, just to be sure it works there.

i have to press  alt and capslock keys to turn capslock on and off. and the status is spoken when i do this.
another configuration you have to press the capslock twice fast before the status will change and spoken.
the first press is for the jaws key. the second press turns capslock, on or off.

I have noticed with both of my installations of JAWS 2018 (one on Windows 7 and
one on Win 10) that JAWS does not announce the status of Caps lock on and off
as I press the button.  This became particularly problematic earlier today when
I was at the Window 7 login screen after having left my computer for a while
and my first entry of my password got an error.  I figured caps lock was on, so
press the button to remove caps lock, but my password was still incorrect.  I
have no idea if caps lock was on or off and ended up locking myself out after
several failed attempts of pressing caps lock.  Because I did not know how to
figure out if caps lock was on and was afraid the tech support guy was going to
have me typing a new password in, I did a hard shutdown hoping to clear it.  As
it turned out, I still had Window Eyes set to load at start up, so I was able
to get unlocked and logged back in with the ability to check caps lock status.



Why does JAWS not tell the Caps lock status and is there a way to get it to do
this?  Window Eyes does it fine.  By extension, I’ve even surprised in say, MS
Word, that JAWS does not correctly identify what is happening with commands
such as Control B, Control S, etc.  With Window Eyes, it says “Bold on” and
“Bold off” or “saving document”.  I really am trying to make the switch to
JAWS, but things like this are making me anxious.

Hi Shirley,

Every Jaws version from the FS website is a full and complete version and represents the latest update. You don't even have to ever bother with the DVD, ity just adds an extra step, you could have just downloaded Jaws 2018 version 1803.24 (the March update) and installed it. I have no idea why FS insists on wasting resources by sending out these DVD's, as soon as I get mine it goes straight in the trash unopened.

Hi everyone,

I posted earlier I had bought an all-in-one computer, but got chicken and returned it. The one I have set up now is much more powerful--refurbished but works really well.

Here are my questions:

1. Do you all have trouble using EDGE? I generally use Internet Explorer or I used to sometimes use Firefox. When trying to read email today, I discovered that Edge will show me the messages but won't open the links. Is there a JAWS key that will open them? I'm using Roadrunner email through Mail.brighthouse.com. I'm using Internet Explorer right now, but I'd use Edge if it's possible.

2. I installed JAWS 1820 from the disk. I then downloaded the March update from the website. Do I need to download each of the other updates? Or will they be in the March update?
Windows 10 doesn't seem too difficult. It's just the learning curve that makes it seem daunting.

Thank you all for your patience. At least I'm trying to learn. (smile).

moderated Re: Finally got windows 10 and have questions

 

Edge with Jaws 2018 may not have all the features you get with IE or Chrome, but it works quite well and I'm sure it will get better in time.
The fact, however, is that Chrome is still the most popular browser and probably will remain so, it is probably followed by Firefox and those make up a huge portion of browser use.

Your JAWS will tell you when there is an update, and invite you to download and install it by activating the appropriate button in the dialog. Ditto FSCast podcast episodes.

Freedom Scientific software and the Microsoft Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, what you need to know



by <http://blog.freedomscientific.com/?author=4>Jonathan Mosen

One thing's for sure. The only constant in technology is change.

Approximately every six months, Microsoft releases a major new version of Windows. They also add significant feature enhancements to Office 365 regularly.

We're staying on top of the changes, so you can be efficient and productive. We start by testing new Microsoft software at the earliest possible opportunity, long before it is released to the public. Then in collaboration with Microsoft, we make any necessary changes ahead of time.

Benefiting from that collaboration and cutting-edge technology is just one of the benefits of keeping your software maintenance agreement current.

This blog post is all about Windows, because it's almost time for the next version. We expect the next major version of Windows will be known as the Spring Creators Update. As with other recent versions of Windows, you'll be able to download it manually, or wait for Microsoft to push it to your computer. Keep in mind that if you are a home user of Windows 10, you will eventually receive the upgrade without the ability to opt out, which makes upgrading your assistive technology essential.

We're pleased to let you know that most users of our current technology are ready for the Spring Creators Update today. However, if you use a dongle to authorize most of our products, or use multiple-monitors with ZoomText, then you'll need to ensure you install updates which are imminent.

Most users will be in good shape to upgrade by the end of this month.

For a full list of known compatibility issues, and to help you decide if you want to be an early adopter of the Windows Spring Creators Update, refer to the table below.

Not to be off topic but I purchased a chromebook and noticed that even with the built-in screenreader that it doesant do a good job. That is why I will always stick to windows and jaws.

The Spring update is supposed to bring better access with Edge.
Hopefully they're correct about that. Not being a Chrome fan, I'm very
interested to see what Microsoft does with Edge development and how VFO
and NVDA handle it with their screenreaders.

Hi everyone,

I posted earlier I had bought an all-in-one computer, but got chicken and returned it. The one I have set up now is much more powerful--refurbished but works really well.

Here are my questions:

1. Do you all have trouble using EDGE? I generally use Internet Explorer or I used to sometimes use Firefox. When trying to read email today, I discovered that Edge will show me the messages but won't open the links. Is there a JAWS key that will open them? I'm using Roadrunner email through Mail.brighthouse.com. I'm using Internet Explorer right now, but I'd use Edge if it's possible.

2. I installed JAWS 1820 from the disk. I then downloaded the March update from the website. Do I need to download each of the other updates? Or will they be in the March update?
Windows 10 doesn't seem too difficult. It's just the learning curve that makes it seem daunting.

Thank you all for your patience. At least I'm trying to learn. (smile).

to set up the desired sounds?

Thank You

How do I create sounds that indicate that I am at the top or bottom of a
document or email? I have office 2016, Windows 10 & JAWS 2018. I had the
sounds but since Windows updated they went away & I don't know how to get
them back.

Thanks,



Denise

Subject: Excel, Jaws 2018 reading value in different cell

 

Hello, I have a spread sheet setup with many columns. Then down 300 rows is a total row. For some reason when I’m on the total row which has a formula for all values in the column, Jaws is reading the value in the second row of the same column before it reads the actual value in the cell. Is there a setting in Jaws causing this or is something in Excel I need to change?

Thanks for everyone who has responded. I guess I wasn't expecting EDGE to work perfectly, but I assumed issues with it had been fixed. I'm actually fine with Internet Explorer for now. My hope was that there would be something better.

My question about the updates was more a question of whether I needed to go back and download the January and February updates in order to get the fixes they are said to have contained. I just couldn't figure out if one builds upon the prior or if it contains all.

A little knowledge really can be a dangerous thing. :) I only have a little knowledge in the area of technology. But I can sure conjugate a verb.

Thanks again.

Barbara <batterseye@...>
 

Hello CathyAnne,

 

This worked great!  I assume there is some similar keystroke for MS Word.  If I press control-o to get a list of files, I would like to know the number of files in the focused folder.  I have just spent a lot of time trying to find an answer both on the web and in the JAWS help.  I have struck out.  I have two imputers, one has Office 2013 and the other has Office 2016.  Can you help?  I am not clear if I need to use a different JAWS hotkey (JAWS 2018) or I need to change options in the status line of Office.

 

Thanks.

 

Barbara

You can control what’s displayed in the Outlook 2016 Status bar.

 

1. Focus in the message list

2. Press F6 until focus is on “Status Bar”

3. Press the WINDOWS APPPLICATION KEY or SHIFT-F10 to open the configuration menu

4. Navigate the menu and toggle the options on and off as needed

5. Tap ESCAPE to close the menu

 

The changes take place immediately.

Subject: Office 2016 Question

 

Hello Everyone,

 

I have Office 2016.  I am using Outlook.  I did a number of modifications to make Outlook more friendly like getting rid of the preview pane and so on.  I have been using Outlook 2013 in the past.  I could use a JAWS hotkey of insert-pagedown to hear the number of messages in the outlook folder while I am in that Outlook folder.  When I tried the same hotkey in Outlook 2016, I got other information, but not the number of messages in the Outlook folder.  I know I can find the number of messages in the Outlook folder list when using control-y, but that seems a lot of steps when I wish just to check this information.  Is there an Outlook 2016 hotkey or other way to hear the number of messages?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

Barbara

Uncheck the box in the View menu that sets conversational view.

Something interesting, if you use Outlook, it will be 2016. When I bought mine, I got Office 2013, but today, I saw somewhere where this Outlook is 2016. Outlook is OK, only one thing it does that makes no sense to me, and I would disable, if I could, and that is collapse and expand. To me it is nonsense; I do realize that it has a purpose and makes sense to somebody, just not to me. Therefore, if I could eliminate that function, I would immediately.

Best regards,

Instead of using a browser for email, why not try a regular Windows mail program, like Thunderbird, or Windows Live Mail. I would not, however, recommend the native Windows 10 email client.


Your JAWS will tell you when there is an update, and invite you to download and install it by activating the appropriate button in the dialog. Ditto FSCast podcast episodes.
