Re: zipping files

You could just use the built-in zip function in Windows 10.
Select your files, do the right click with the applications key or shift-f10 and arrow to the send to item, right arrow, and arrow down to compressed zip file and hit enter.
Note, the zip file will use one of the file names and put it in that folder.
Rename it if you like and move it wherever you want it.

I tried to use winzip to zip some files. I use to be able to use winzip with windows 7 and for some reason it is no longer working. I’m using Windows 10 and Jaws 2018. Is there something I need to setup on Jaws or is there another zip program that works with Jaws?  Thanks, Kevin

JAWS office 365 chrome need help for navigation

Sharon Ballantyne
 

I use windows 10 and the latest version of JAWS 2019. I have used office 365 for over a year, downloaded on my laptop. It has a work email on it. I have just accepted a faculty position to teach a summer course for the summer term and the university also uses office 365. I can log in using google chrome browser but the outlook through the university office 365 does not respond to keyboard commands for control n for new message and I am needing to tab everywhere to try to figure things out. Can I reset something to make keyboard commands work? Thank-you for any advice.

Make sure the keys are not stuck. Use compressed air to blow out the keys. Laptops seem to get stuck as they are often exposed to lots of different places.

You can try Seven Zip instead. Enable context menus and you can right click the folder and zip it. Or highlight all the files and right click them also..

Hi,
Not that I am aware. You could take the OCR from the JAWS viewer , paste into a Word document and then print but there would be no formatting or the like. Also, does your scanner have a copy or save to pdf function? If so, JAWS may be able to read the controls for the scanner software and thus copy without the use of OpenBook. With the advent of Microsoft's Seeing AI and K NFB reder and advances in JAWS OpenBook may indeed be on the way out. I do wish they would try an update however as it has ben years.

With the OCR and picture functions in Jaws 2019 Open Book is becoming obosolete in some ways. One feature of Open Book I use is the photo copy function. Is there any way to use Jaws 2019 as a photo copier when you have a scanner attached?

Smack both shift keys several times, but not too many to bring on stickey keys dialog.  This is a problem that used to happen all the time with certain keyboard controllers chips.  Usually reboot is not necessary.

Alt+f=file,
T=options,
M=mail,
Alt+n=signature, press enter,
here you land on ok button, shift+tab you land on the edit button,
you can edit here,
make sure you then enter on the ok button.

Have you tried to tab once or twice past the edit field for the signature and then Shift+Ta back into it? At one point this worked for me, I checked it right now and for me Jaws 2019 reads the text of my signature, but I am using Office 365.

Hello,
I am using JAWS 2019 on a Windows 10 machine and I am trying to edit
my signature in Outlook2016. I find that although I can select the
signature to edit, the text is not readable by JAWS.
Has anyone else noticed this behavior and have a work around? I am
sure that I can delete and create a new signature but as it is one
item that I need to correct this seems like a hassle and not something I should need to do.
Thank you in advance for any responses

Percussive maintenance often works: Place one hand on each shift key and bang them alternately about ten times. If you haven't rebooted yet and percussion doesn't work, reboot.
good luck!
