I don't have the file any more, it died with my old computer.

Is there a way I could make a new file and set form fields into it? Thanks.

Bye for now,

Carolyn,

I understand what you're describing, but even a regular Word document can employ form fields in it.

I will be curious if anyone else can identify a mechanism that one could use that would allow text entry that should appear on a single physical line that does not move the text that follows it that does not employ either a table or form. It's been ages since I used Word 2003, so perhaps there was some method that was discontinued in later versions of Word or else that I am completely unaware of. My offer still stands if you'd care to e-mail me a copy of the Word 2003 file you'd been using to do this.

Re: Sending screenshots using JAWS

 

Michael,

            ALT+PrtSc is the keystroke sequence to do a window capture.  If the window that has focus is maximized to fill the screen then it is, in fact, a screen capture.  If, however, you have focus on something like a dialog box or window that's been reduced down you'll get something that's the size of that particular window, not the full screen.

            The above only captures the screen, but you still have to save that capture as an image file if you want to do something like send it as an e-mail attachment.  I generally just open MS-Paint, paste the capture from the clipboard, then save it as a JPG file.

Sending screenshots using JAWS

Michael Mote
 

Good evening!  I’m wondering how to send a screen shot using JAWS, or if it’s doable.  I thought there was a way to do it.  I thought you could do it by pressing the print screen key or something like that?

Hi Jim,
 
That's exactly what I thought after updating.  Because Jaws 16 apparently isn't seeing that I have Jaws 17 installed!  LOL  LOL  But, Both Jaws 15 & 17 show the correct number of SMA's / upgrades available.
Take care.

Re: Attachments in "rich text" messages under Microsoft Outlook 2013

 

Jim,

           The answer to that question is "Yes," in regard to any e-mail message you might generate.  Neither HTML or plain text message formats support inline attachments, so anything you might attach to a message composed in those two formats will be a conventional attachment.

           The answer is, of course, "No," as far as what you might receive from others, particularly forwarded messages that were originally composed in RTF and in which the forwarder has included an inline attachment.

           Another big advantage of either HTML or plain text formats is that they are, relatively speaking, more secure and less subject to exploits than RTF format is.

Advanced Searching in Outlook 2010 - Opinions Sought

 
Edited

I generally prefer to teach keystrokes to access the required ribbon options to accomplish something, but this time I might make an exception.

Once you're in an Outlook folder you wish to search it's a simple matter to hit Ctrl+E to be thrown into the search box.  After that things become much more complicated.

If you want to search on the From field, the keystroke sequence to do this is ALT+JS+OM, then one types in the partial or full name or e-mail address one wishes to search on.  By contrast, one can enter the search operator "from," open parenthesis, the partial or full name or e-mail address, and a close parenthesis directly in the search box to accomplish precisely the same thing.

If you want to get only messages that have attachments, the keystroke sequence to do this is ALT+JS+H, and that creates a search only for messages that have attachments.  By contrast, one can enter the search operator "hasattachments:" followed immediately by either "yes" or "no" and can filter for messages that either do or do not have attachments directly into the search box.

If you want to filter by date, the keystroke sequence is ALT+JS+W, this brings up a drop down menu from which you can choose today, yesterday, this week, last week, this month, last month, this year, or last year.  By contrast, one can enter the search operator "received:" followed by one of the previously listed single words or two-word phrases.

All of the above can, of course, be combined together.  There are also additional criteria that can be specified but I'm trying to focus on the most common and useful.

Let's say I'm trying to find an e-mail that I sent to you, last week, that has an attachment on it.  I can do one of two things after hitting CTRL+E:

1.  Immediately type "from(Brian Vogel) received:last week hasattachments:yes" in the search box by hand.

2.  Hit ALT+JS+OM and immediately type "Brian Vogel," then hit ALT+JS+W and use down arrow to go through the dropdown to find last week, then hit ALT+JS+H

The second option is, to me, much more cumbersome than the first, once you know what the search operator terms and formats are.  In addition, it is only through hand entering "hasattachments:no" that one can limit the search to messages that do not have an attachment, no keystroke sequence generates the "no" condition.

I'm sure that some of you have had to use advanced searching to filter out as much extraneous e-mail in your archives as you possibly can before trying to locate a specific message from the returned results.  What say you regarding whether it makes more sense in this case to focus on the search operators that you type yourself versus the keystrokes and typing involved to do each via the ribbon?

Re: JAWS 17 and Auto Complete Email Addresses

Hi Darrin,

 

Yes, you can go to the File Menu in Outlook, alt F, and arrow down to File Options hit enter. You will land on general in the list. Arrow down to mail and shift tab or just tab(takes longer) or until you find the auto complete checkbox or even quicker alt G make sure it is checked then press the ok button and your done.

Hi List.

 

I'm just making the change to version 17 and have hit upon another thing I'd like to see operate as in my previous JAWS versions,I.e the announcement of auto complete email addresses.

 

Previously, I'd start typing an address and JAWS would announce for me what was being auto completed, now this isn't happening and its slowing me down quite a bit!

 

Does anyone know if there's a setting I need to change to start auto complete being announced once more?

 

Many thanks.

Re: Word 2013 formatting.

Carolyn Arnold <4carolyna@...>
 

It was just set up in a plain word document, homemade, you might say. Yet, when we did it with 2003, the thing worked find, not moving the prompt point at space 47. When my husband saw that it moved, it worried him, but I said I can get there and did. It surprised him, but I remembered the spacing from back when I had it on my typewriter. Incidentally, had to write one on the typewriter today, because I need a cartridge.

Bye for now,

Are you certain that the check-writing template didn't use form fields, or maybe a table? The only way I know of to make sure that text doesn't push other text that follows it out of the way is if that text is in a table cell or a form field.

If you have a copy of the blank document that is the check fill-in template I'd be happy to take a look at it and see what's going on, and how it might be set up such that the various bits remain in precisely the same spots.

Re: Attachments in "rich text" messages under Microsoft Outlook 2013

 

I, too interpreted "insert tab" as a keystroke command in the original message.  What was meant was being in the insert tab of the ribbon, which makes complete sense now.  That missing article "the" completely changed what I was thinking about!

The "insert tab method" is the same as the keystrokes N A F as described
by
Carolyn. It isn't my favorite method, but it works well enough if, as you
said, the files to be attached are not spread far and wide throughout the
system.

I suppose which method you choose has a lot to do with the comfort level
of
the person creating the attachments. For me, copy and paste has always
been
the most straightforward way to attach files and so is the one I most
often
choose.

When you say "Copy and Paste" via the steps given by Carolyn

If you continue to copy and paste after that for additional
attachments they just appear next to the one(s) already listed in the
edit box for Attachments.

The ALT+N,AF method is great if the file or files you intend
to attach are in a single folder, and that folder is not hard to
navigate to from wherever you happened to attach a file from the last
time you used that method. When the files are spread out all over the
place that's when I use the copy and paste method but with Search
Everything being the method of doing the file finds. If you know the
name of the file you're looking for, and you use distinctive file
names, it's much faster to find an individual file that way for
copy/paste than navigating within a browse dialog and having to go "long
distances" in the tree to locate the files.

What is the "insert tab" method? I may have to try that one
if it's easier for my clients.
