The problem I have with that is that those buttons on my laptop are designed into the touch pad and are difficult to find without touching the touch pad which of course moves the mouse pointer which causes the buttons to act on something else on the screen. If I could disable the touch pad without disabling the buttons I would, but if I disable the touch pad the buttons get disabled too. So I'm stuck with shift+F10.

If you don't run Jaws from the system tray this is normal, but if you do run Jaws from the system tray it is not. 

 

If you have Jaws set to run from the system tray try unloading Jaws and reloading, now see if you can access the menues by arrowing after pressing, Insert + J.

I must have something set up differently. I can press insert plus j and it brings up the jaws window and reads the current version, like it would as a heading. It won’t let me get to the menus this way unless I press alt h. Is there a setting I need to change in Jaws?

Hi Karen!

You should be able to go to the about JAWS dialog and it will tell you how many upgrades you have left.

1. insert+J to open the JAWS context menu 2. press up arrow two time to get to the about option 3. press enter 4. press insert+alt+W to virtualize the dialog, this makes it easy to browse what it says.
or you could switch to the JAWS cursor by pressing the numeric keypad - key.

Quoting:

Set the placemarkers as described.

Use control windows k to create a temporary placemarker.

Do this at the start of where  you want to select, then navigate down to where the end of your selection is going to be, so to the end of where you want to select. 

Use insert spacebar, then the letter m.

You should here selecting between marked place and current position.

Then copy, and paste into your document.

End quote:

 

This is exactly what I did, however,

It not only copies the column I want, but,

It also copies the corresponding rows as well.

It can be a nightmare to go back and edit all the unwanted columns out of the pasted data.

So, it does not only copy the contents of one specific column.

 

Not only that,

If I first go into table-layer with insert-space ant T,

And then set a placemarker,

It still copies entire rows, not just the desired column.

 

I will play with it a bit later on as I must go and move out of my old apartment.

 

Please advise as you like.

Mike,
Are there table commands for selecting a column in a browser?
In word and other word processors, you can select rows and columns with shift + space or control + space.
In Edge, Jaws can give program specific help with commonly used shortcuts with insert W, but this only seems to be a feature for Jaws with Microsoft products, but what works in Edge will probably work in other browsers.

Since we don’t have the document, I can’t be sure that only that column will be selected. You may need to copy the entire document into a new file and play with it. But the placemarkers will ultimately give you what you need.

I need to correct myself here. Apparently in the last JAWS update, Freedom Scientific decided to remove the option to disable Sharky. So if you want to disable it, you'll have to create an AdditionalSettings.ini file and put it in the same folder where you run the JAWS installer from.

To get information about how to do this run the installer with the /help command line option.

I've never seen a Windows key on the right side of any keyboards, what I do see there is the application key which is the same as a right click with a mouse.

Are you familiar with placemarkers? Set a placemarker at the beginning of the column with control-windows key-k. locate the end of the column and press JAWS key-spacebar followed by m to complete the selection. Then press control-c to copy and proceed from there.

 

Since we don’t have the document, I can’t be sure that only that column will be selected. You may need to copy the entire document into a new file and play with it. But the placemarkers will ultimately give you what you need.

Hi guys:

 

If I am on a webpage and I wish to select a column of text from within a table,

And then paste it into word or notepad but not as a column in a table,

How do I do this?

Using jaws 2022?

I think the browser is chrome if that helps?

 

The reason for me doing this is that,

Use two documents, and then paste the material into the first document, then copy and paste it into your outline.

Hi Dave,

Thanks. This helps, Might be time for a change. Sometimes it is useful and others not so much, kind of gets in the way when I’m using alt tab.

Hello Karen:

 

When JAWS is not set to run in the System Tray, there is always an open window, when you cycle through the open programs, when you use ALT+TAB.

 

 When JAWS is set to run in the System Tray, the JAWS window is hidden.

Hi Karen,

 

If you don't run Jaws from the system tray this is normal, but if you do run Jaws from the system tray it is not. 

 

If you have Jaws set to run from the system tray try unloading Jaws and reloading, now see if you can access the menues by arrowing after pressing, Insert + J.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I must have something set up differently. I can press insert plus j and it brings up the jaws window and reads the current version, like it would as a heading. It won’t let me get to the menus this way unless I press alt h. Is there a setting I need to change in Jaws?

Hi Karen,

 

Press, Insert + J, up arrow to, Help submenu, press enter, up arrow to, About, press enter and this is where you'll find the info you're looking for.

Hi Jean,
When I press insert j it only gives me the version number. I'm not able to up arrow at all.

Hi Karen!

You should be able to go to the about JAWS dialog and it will tell you how many upgrades you have left.

1. insert+J to open the JAWS context menu 2. press up arrow two time to get to the about option 3. press enter 4. press insert+alt+W to virtualize the dialog, this makes it easy to browse what it says.
or you could switch to the JAWS cursor by pressing the numeric keypad - key.
