And make sure it is checked.

I'm using Windows 10, JAWS 2021, and MS Office Excel 2016.  I used to be able to press F2 in any cell to edit in that cell in Office 2007 Excel, but I can no longer do that.  I know that it is a matter of unchecking a check box, but where is it?

moderated JAWS repeating subject and email address in Thunderbird

Marty Hutchings
 

I am using Thunderbird with Windows 10 and JAWS 2021 and I have noticed that when I open an email to read it, JAWS repeats the subject and my email address sometimes three times before beginning to read the body of the message.  Is there anything that I can do to get JAWS to not do this.  I would rather that JAWS just be silent while loading the message after saying the subject once.

I’m using the day view and I always tab through each event on that day. For example, I know that I have four meetings tomorrow but when I tab, I get the first two and then get that over flow. Then it starts to try and look at the next day. It’s really quite a problem since I cannot see all my meetings and I almost missed one this morning.

moderated Help - can I create a narrated power point using JAWS 2021?

Cynthia Bruce
 

Hi All,

 

I am trying to record a conference presentation, and I am running into trouble. The optimal way to do this would be using narrated power point because I can do it one slide at a time. However, I can’t seem to get JAWS to read the record, stop, or play recording buttons – my partner can see them but I can’t get to them. So, I can’t tell if I am recording, can’t listen to what I may or may not have recorded, and can’t delete what I have recorded.

 

Thanks,

 

Cynthia

Hi Brian, 

 

One more question that I’d like to ask you if I may,  How would I know what version of outlook that I’m using which comes with office 365? In other words, is it 2016, 2019, or is it outlook 365.  How would I be able too find the version that I’m using at this point?

Albert,

See either:

Delete an Address From the Outlook Autocomplete List

Outlook 2019/365: Clear Email Address From Auto-Complete

 
Remember that autocomplete is not looking at your contacts, but through a list that it creates over time as you send e-mail messages.  This is emphasized in both of the above articles/tutorials, so there will be many more entries associated with autocomplete than are in your contacts.

You can either delete individual entries if you know part of the address you want to delete, or you can nuke your entire autocomplete list.  But if you elect to do the latter, you will be starting over from scratch as far as it being created again as you send additional email messages, and many of the entries you have become accustomed to "just being there" will not be until you actually send a message to that address again.

Oh, for those long lost days!   I have only ever used emoticons very sparingly, as I've generally been able to carry off snark, sarcasm, and irony without them.

Emojis are something I do not think I've ever used except as an embellishment in a text message, e.g., adding a birthday cake to a happy birthday message.  I despise the things with a burning passion overall (not that anyone else needs to, that's just me).

Hi again Sieghard. The use of the symbols ;-) denote a sarcastic smiley face. That's what Brian was trying to get across. When he said, "Sieghard, you know this is untrue, because it's been asserted to be untrue, contrary to our own repeated observations," He is poking fun at people who are like ostriches with their heads in the sand, and who, despite overwhelming facts to the contrary, believe what they want to, no matter how unreasonable their assertion may be.

Sieghard, you know this is untrue, because it's been asserted to be untrue, contrary to our own repeated observations, and those of many others on this very topic.  ;-)

The days where the vast majority of CAPTCHAs are, in actuality, in accessible except in the case of both visual and hearing impairment are gone, and have been for a while.

And if one does encounter one that is, the entity that is using it should be notified.  There's no reason to use old-style visual-only CAPTCHAs now.  Most haven't used those for quite some time, but there are always some holdouts.  Between the "check if you're not a robot" type and the ability to get audio challenges as an alternative, most should be accessible to most people.  I cannot ever foresee the day when challenges to prevent bots from being able to access accounts/sign-up systems/etc. will ever be 100% accessible 100% of the time for every living being.  If they were then there would be very easy programmatic ways around them, which defeats the legitimate security purposes.  They're meant to differentiate man/woman from machine.

When I run Edge, and I download a file, JAWS now does not repeat download status.

 

In the past, this has been annoying, at times, because those alerts interrupt any other speech.  But, it am now unaware if/when a download finishes.

 

I found that the alerts are still spoken with Chrome.

 

Anyone else have this problem?

 

Thanks!
