Re: no email body text in outlook express, when OpenBook Instaled

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Marion,

What version of Openbook are you running? Personally I have never had the
problem you are experiencing using Openbook 7 or 8, didn't care too much for
9. Why don't you call Freedom Scientific tech support & let them figure out
what's happening. Their phone # is: 1-727-803-8600, press prompt, #2.

Or, you can join the Openbook list using the subscription link below & maybe
someone there will have an answer for you:

Openbook-users-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

HTH
Take care.
Mike

Subject: no email body text in outlook express, when OpenBook Instaled


Hi all,

I installed a 30 day trial copy of FS OpenBook, it worked great on my WinXP
PC with Jaws11, however when checking my email accounts I could read all
mail ok but when composing new mail it would not let me enter any body text,
only headers, according to FS it's suitable for use with WinXP, After many
fruitless hours of trying to diagnose the problem I gave up and uninstalled
OpenBook, which put everything back to normal.
It's a shame because the OCR scanning software and other facilities worked
great in OpenBook with Jaws11, it's a good job I tried the trial version
before buying

If anyone knows of a fix before I give up please let me know,

Marion

Re: reading N Y Times articles

Bill Spiry
 

I use JAWS to read news on the web from time to time but find it is
limiting. The NY Times is paywalled online via my PC but interestingly, it's
not paywalled via mobil access.

If you use an iOS device, an app called "Earl" is another fully accessible
alternative for access to the New York Times and hundreds of other English
language newspapers and periodicals from around the world. The interface is
voice controlled and all the content is read to you using your choice of the
five very high quality TTS voices built into Earl. Just double-tap your
screen, listen for the tone, speak a few straightforward commands and Earl
will read articles you select from nearly 300 newspapers and periodicals,
without ever having to see the screen. Earl works equally well with or
without Voice Over since it uses it's own VUI and TTS system.

Find Earl in the app store at:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/Earl/id573701016?ls=1&mt=8

you can find an extensive FAQ/user guide, demo and tutorial podcasts, and
other info about Earl at the home page:
www.EarlSpeech.com/

If you want to learn more about Earl, there are a couple of podcasts you can
check out.
First, a walk through demo on AppleVis.com:
http://www.applevis.com/sites/default/files/podcasts/applevisPodcast335.mp3

and an interview & demo on Blind Bargains from CSun 2013:

The easiest way to read the New York Times, or any other major newspaper,
for that matter, is to access it using NFB Newsline Online, rather than
trying to access it directly from the paper's web site. All articles on NFB
Newsline are arranged alphabetically by headline within section, and of
course, there are no annoying pop-ups or flash content to deal with.

The NY Times has been "improving" its website and emails. Last week they
reformatted their daily headlines email so that headlines are no longer
marked as headers. Before, I could skip from story to story by pressing 3
for header at level 3. Now I have to press 4 for the reporter's byline,
then
arrow up twice to the actual headline. Still worse, the layout isn't
consistent, and this method sometimes skips over material. I've written to
the Times to ask them to reinstate the header format for headlines. Their
first response was thanks for my opinion. I followed up, and this time got
an assurance that my request had been forwarded to Development.

To address your concern here, I find that the webpages on the website are
no
longer as stable. I can't say I've experienced what you describe because I
automatically go right to the print version. However, it's sometimes
difficult to pin down the print link.

You've probably noticed that sometimes an ad will pop up as a webpage
appears to be opening. The usual solution in this case is to go to the top
of the page and arrow down once. Here there's a link for skipping the ad.
Press enter on this, and the webpage I want stays in place.

You might want to bring your experience to the attention of the Times. As
I
tried to suggest, you might need to be persistent. Past problems with the
newspaper have always been fixed.

I'm using JAWS 14, Win7 and IE9. I find that JAWS 14 handles the Internet
better than previous versions of JAWS.

You do not need to be a member of the NFB to register for NFB Newsline. As long as you are legally blind, you are eligible for service. If you are already a patron of the NLS Talking Book program, you are automatically eligible. NFB Newsline currently has over 300 newspapers, magazines and periodicals available . You can either read them online using your screen reader or by calling a toll-free access number and listening to them over the phone using your choice of synthetic voices. Daily newspapers like the New York Times are posted before the print version hits the newsstands, so you can read the news first thing in the morning if you like. To learn more visit:

reading N Y Times articles

Tusing <ptusing@...>
 

Hi,
I would invite any one to find a long article on the N Y Times let's say
under health and
Try to read it with JAWS (10 and 12).

The articles all get interrupted by
"flash movie start"
and then the entire page refreshes back to the top.

I have
"suppress all refreshes" checked.

Yes, one can find "print" and the Timeswill
Present the entire article perfectly.

But I want to know why JAWS cannot read the entire article as happens on
other newspaper sites without refreshing back to the beginning.

Thanks to the excellent person who wrote me privately.

Freedom Scientific did not as of now answer my query.

Thanksto all.


JAWS not saying "Star, Star" when typing passwords

Sameer
 

Dear List Members,

I am using JAWS 14 with Internet Explorer 8 & Windows XP as the OS.

I have noticed the following strange behaviour during the past couple of weeks & request suggestions from members about it's cause & solution.

1. Whenever I type passwords online, for example for logging into my email account, JAWS will stay silent. Previously, it used to announce "Star, Star" as I typed the passwords.
2. But if I turn on private browsing in Internet Explorer, JAWS says "Star, Star" when typing passwords on the same website.

This problem does not occur in Firefox.

Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Regards
Mr. Sameer Latey
Mumbai, India

Hello all,

I noticed that a few of you are using Mac. I was curious to know how
are you
all using JAWS on a Mac. I understand that JAWS does not work on OS 10.
Also, I think that MS Office suite developed for Mac is inaccessible
with
Apple's voiceover. If my understanding is correct, How are you all able
to
work on MS Office on a Mac?

I am thinking of buying a Mac, and so am eager to hear from you.

Regards,
Apoorv

Re: How to resize columns and rows in Excel

George B
 

Yes but if you choose the cell in the collum with the longest text string in
earlier versions it was easy to fit to that string now it is hidden and the
email yesterday told you how to do the old easy find of auto fit and that
makes the entire collum as wide as the cell you highlitted with the longest
string.

What I do to widen the columns in Excel 2010 is to press CTRL +
spacebar to select the column I wish to widen, then press the
applications key and choose "Column width from the context menu, and
then type the size I wish the column to be.

When we enter text in a cell in Excel, at times the text overflows
out of
the cell. Depending on whether the adjacent cell has any text, the
overflowing text either is displayed or disappears behind the
contents of
the adjacent cell. In either of the two cases, JAWS will read the
complete
content of the text, and so, a JAWS user may not understand if the
text is
appearing properly on the screen. I wanted to know if there is any
way to
resize the column such that the cell is wide enough to display the
text
completely. At the same time, how does one know that the new size of
the
column is not excessively wide such that the worksheet appears poorly
formatted.



I am aware of the wrap text formatting option of Excel, and would
appreciate
if an alternative approach is suggested by the group.



Lastly, is there any way to resize the rows in this fashion too?

Re: How to resize columns and rows in Excel

After selecting the column, if you press alt+h, then o, then I Excel will choose the proper width for the column, based on the widest cell.

Re: How to resize columns and rows in Excel

paul lemm
 

Hi,

It would depend which version of excel your using. If its 2010 then you go
to the home menu, then cells, then format, then auto fit either row or Colum
depending on which one you want to change.

I think for older versions of excel (the versions before the ribbon
toolbars) you go to the format menu and it's been a while since I've used
the older versions but I think there is a cells option in there somewhere
with the auto fit options.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Paul Lemm

Re: How to resize columns and rows in Excel

Dear Friend,

In Excel 2007, press Alt + H followed by O & I for adjusting column width.
Press Alt + H followed by O & A to adjust row width.

The above commands will increase the column/ row width to fit the largest amount of data appearing in that particular column/ row.
