That's the recommended browser. I haven't had any luck using it though; way too many keystrokes.

Hi Lauren,
I use Google Docs with JAWS 17 and win10. First of all, You can easily
get to Google Docs from your Google drive. So, to make things easier,
Just think about Google drive, and you can get to all of the other apps
from it. First of all, the URL to type in is:
drive.Google.com
Don’t type the www.
Next, you want to be using Firefox; however, IE is close behind for
working well with Google Drive. When the page comes up, you will be put
in your list of files on My drive of Google Drive. Immediately, press
insert + X to turn off the virtual cursor. to use these Google apps,
you cannot have the virtual cursor on, because you are working in an
app, and you do not want the keys you press to activate the JAWS
navigation commands like h for heading, for example. In Google Drive,
there are different default folders just like on your hard drive.
Now, if someone sends you a file, press gn to go to the navigation area
and arrow to the incoming folder and press enter. Then, you will be
able to open up the file that was sent to you. There are many key
commands you have to know to get around Google Drive. Google Docs does
not come into play until you open a Google document within your list of
files that is in your My Drive area of Google Drive. If you enter on a
Google Doc, it will open up in a separate area called Google Docs! See
how Google Drive is the hub of Google Docs, Google Sheets, and so on.
When you are in Google Drive, press ctrl + / to bring up all key
commands for Google Drive, and do the same when a Google Doc opens in
Google Docs. Some of the important key commands, In Google Drive, to
get to your list of files, press gl. Press up and down arrow to go
through your files. To create a new document, press the letter C and
arrow down to document and press enter. Google Docs will then open with
a blank document window for you to Type in. When you press the letter C
to get to the new menu, you were in Google Drive at that point. You did

Re: setting Word 2010 as default

 

Marianne,

           I cannot answer your question regarding the versions of Excel definitively when two versions are installed on the same machine.  Generally, as far as Windows is concerned, I would expect that the "Excel choice" it presents in the short list will either be the newest version (more likely) or the one that has been installed on the machine most recently (possible).

           Your best bet is to find the precise folder on your machine where Excel 2010 is installed and make a note of that before going into Default Programs.  You are presented with a Browse option (before Win10) or "Choose a different app" (or something similar in Win10) that allows you to navigate to the folder where the program you want to use resides and to select that as the default.  It's been a long time since I last needed to do this, but have been in a couple of situations similar to yours where using an older version of a given program was preferable to the newer one, and I had to follow the previously mentioned steps then browse for the program I actually wanted to use.

Brian


Re: setting Word 2010 as default

Marianne Denning
 

Thanks.  Will this show me different Excel options?  I have both Excel 2010 and Excel 2013.  I want to use Excel 2010 as my default.

          For instance, once the extension list is up you could search for .docx, which should already have Word set as its default program, but if it somehow had been associated with some other program by malware, virus, or some operator error, you can hit the "Change Program" button and select Word from the program list (or browse for it if, by some chance, it weren't already in the list).

         The easiest way to do this on Windows 7 through Windows 10 is to open Control Panel and select the "Default Programs" dialog.  Once that's open the link that reads "Associate a file type or protocol with a program" presents you with a long list of file extensions and, for each, the default program used to open that type of file.  Find the file extensions you want to have Word open and activate the Change Program button for each, selecting Word.

Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link for this newest OB 9 update.  This update was released Monday March 7, 2016, at least that's what was told to me by Freedom Scientific tech support.  This update, OB9.0.1696.403, fixes something from the February update, OB9.0.1695.403.  I couldn't find what this update is supposed to fix from the prior version.
 
 
 
Take care.

In Google Drive, there are different default folders just like on your hard drive.

Re: setting Word 2010 as default

Marianne Denning
 

Thanks everyone. I did exactly what everyone said. My only choices
for Word are Word 2016 and Word 2013. Word 2010 isn't one of the
options and it is on my computer and I can go into it and choose to
open a file and it works just fine.

“Choose another app”. This should be at the bottom of the list

Re: JAWS 14 and Office 365

Londa Peterson
 

 If you're installing the client on your computer and you can still install 2013, you should be fine. If you have to use 2016 or the online service, you may need to seriously look into a JAWS upgrade. I think FS has built features like smart navigation into JAWS 17 so that it will work better in situations like this.

Hello Everyone,

 

My University is migrating to Office 365 within the next couple of months. Is there anything I should be aware of in terms of compatibility with JAWS? I am currently using JAWS 14 and Windows 7 (I think).

Cynthia,

 

I’ve been using JAWS with Office 365 for almost two years now without any issues.  I will say one of the advantages is that the updates are done seamlessly in the background, without you having to do anything.  This way you always have all updates installed, no problems, no questions, no worries.  I’ve used it with JAWS 14, 15, 16, and now 17 without issues.  I use it on a daily basis for work as well as personal use, so feel free to ask away and I’ll help out to the best of my ability.

 

Sincerely,
