Re: Reading comments with a document

Ann Byrne
 

Thanks, ed.

I have JAWS 13.0.638. I don't find a difference between "comments on", and "comments on with text", although I had hoped I would. Even arrowing through line-by-line, JFW seldom reads the comment without my stopping the reading and addressing myself to the comment. The company where my student works often has docs with legal phrasing in the comments, and so far we haven't figured out an easy way to fly through both document and comments without stopping. The quick key method is certainly better than nothing, but still a challenge. I wonder if it matters whether the document is .doc, like the file I'm testing with, or .docx. Hmmmmmm.

Now, when you use the control plus shift plus apostrophe, arrow to the comment you want. Then tab to OK.
Once you hit OK, you will be at the comment. Use your arrow keys to move back one space and then forward one space. Jaws will read the comment. In fact, if you just want to arrow through the document, Jaws will read the comment when you come to it.
Another way to jump to the next comment is to use so-called quick keys.
Use Jaws key plus z to turn on quick keys (they are like the quick keys on the Web with HTML documents or PDF documents). Then, you can jump to comments with the letter "n."
I know "n" is not exactly intuitive, but that is it.
You jump to revisions with "r," and that works pretty well. Remember to turn of quick keys with Jaws key plus z when you want to make edits.
There is a way to jump to the next comment inside Word. In fact, I've created a Word hot key to do that, alt plus shift plus r, but that doesn't work all that well with comments.
Somehow this puts Jaws inside the comment, and Jaws behaves very, very badly inside comments.
I hope this helps.

Subject: Reading comments with a document

I have a document with comments. I can list the comments separately,
out of context, with shift-ctrl-apostrophe, or sometimes stop reading
and display the comment at the cursor with alt-ctrl-apostrophe
(although this doesn't always work). How can I have JAWS read the
comments inline, along with the text they refer to?

thanks.

Settings on Windows 7?

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Hello,
This is kind of a novice question, but for the life of me I can't find where I do these things:
I would like Jaws to only speak labeled graphics.
I also want Jaws to show all file extenchans.
How do I do the above?
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs


Clicking on Popups?

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Hello,
I have a popup in the bottom right hand corner of my screen. I go into the Jaws curser and I can read it, but I can't click on anything. I start to arrow through what I see in the Jaws curser by word and when it gets to where the pop-up is I see blank.
Is there some way to find the popup?
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs

I've been using twitmonger for weeks now and it works pretty well. The
developer has kept the same key configuration as Qwitter. Thus far the only
problem I have with it is that when you log in and you hear the word home
you must press control windows home to get to the top of your list of
current tweets before the new ones are retrieved. Otherwise you have to
hunt for where you last left off.

Re: Stopping JAWS

Dean Martineau <dean@...>
 

I suggest you write to support@highcriteria.com and ask how you can record
without interference from JAWS. They are familiar with screen readers
there. I used to have, and probably still have, a registry file they sent
me to ensure that JAWS didn't interfere with recordings, and another one to
keep window-Eyes out of the loop. If need be I can pass them on to you, but
since they worked under XP, I hesitate to apply them to a win 7 system.

Reading a PDF with OpenBook

Ann Byrne
 

Open the document with Adobe. Whether JAWS reads it or tells you "Alert, empty document" you can send it to OpenBook. In Adobe Reader, press alt-f to get to the files menu and arrow down to print. (Probably ctrl-p would give you the print menu, actually.) Tab to the choice of printers and select Freedom Import Printer. Press enter (possibly twice) and OpenBook will wake up and analyze the document.

Headers in Excel

Dondi
 

Hi Everyone,



Last week I think, someone sent an email about setting headers for columns
in Excel using the key combination of Press Insert+control+alt+C. I tried
this and it worked to some degree except the file I saved after doing this
never opened with jaws speaking the headers. Any ways now when I open a new
Excel workbook I have this feature always on. Does anyone know how to turn
this header column reading feature off in JAWS? I'm not talking about the
built in column and row header function in Excel. This had to do with the
old way JAWS would do the header feature.



Thanks for the help.



Dondi
