moderated Grouping worksheets 2016

HH. Smith Jr.
 

Hello fellow listerrs,

 

Does anyone has an easier way to group work sheets. I’m trying to make monthly workbook and I want to group all the months. Any help appreciated.

 


moderated Firefox 60 is out

Cristóbal
 

Somewhat surprised this hasn’t’ hit the list yet, but anyway… Firefox 60 is finally out. Both regular and ESr.

So far with the latest Jaws, it seems to be working ok for me. Using the ESR version in my case.

One frustrating thing though, my homepage which is the all posts page of The Old Reader (www.theoldreader.com) is acting kind of funky.

My list of RSS subs isn’t showing up. Nor are the title subscriptions for each post. Since this is my home page and I refer to it all the time to check the news throughout the day, it may be disruptive enough for me at least that I may go back to the ESR 52.X for now. By any chance is anyone else who is a user of The Old Reader dealing with this particular issue?

Otherwise, no other problems that I’ve come across yet. I am noticing that I need to screen refresh and or tab a lot more to get JFW to react or speak, but I think I started to notice that even in the V 52.0.8 or whatever the last version of ESR before V 60.

Anyway, for those who’ve been itching to give Firefox 60 a spin, knock yourselves out.

Hi,  My opinion is that this is a JAWS issue.  JAWS behaves like this with another app that I have.  Sometimes one thing and then another.

Hi -
I get different responses when pressing Alt plus Delete in Word 2016. Sometimes I get the cursor position in inches from the left and top of the page. Sometimes I get two numbers I have no idea of their reference (i.e. 392 587). This happens without having changed any settings in Word. I am never sure of whether I will get the info I want )position in inches) or the useless pair of numbers that tell me nothing about where I am on a page. I don't think that the fix is in the settings. I could be wrong, but ....

                I want to thank all of you who graciously responded to my plea. However, I figured it out, thanks to a few recommendations on this list. I re-read the user manual for the Victor Trek, and downloaded the books directly from BARD to the player. Bypassed my computer. But I can tie this message in with JAWS, because had it not been for the JAWS group, I would never have known to do it. Thanks.

Hello Shirley,

 

I do this all the time.  I will go to BARD and download several books to my computer into a Books Download folder which I created.  Later I will transfer them to my Victor Reader.  I have both the older version and the newer version of Victor Reader.  What you need is the Humanware Companion software on your computer.  You can find it on their website.

 

You can either download directly to the Victor reader with your cord or what I do is pull out my HDSD card.  I put in a higher memory card when I bought my machine so I could download more books.  It is just a matter of pulling your HDSD card out of the Victor Reader and inserting it in your computer when you have the Humanware Companion App open.  It is fairly simple to figure out what to do by playing around with the menu but there is also a good set of directions on their website.  I use the Victor Reader a lot because my phone runs down quick enough without using it to read books all the time.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi list,

 

Using Windows 10, do I need an app to unzip books that I download from BARD before transferring them into the Victor Trek from Humanware. I generally read books in my iPhone, but I’m taking a 5 hour plane trip, and I want to have something to do on the long flight and still save my phone battery.

 

If I need an app to unzip, which one will JAWS work well with?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hello All,

I am needing some direction from those of you who are web designers or programmers.

I am at the very beginning stages of setting up a website and would appreciate any information you can share, as I have never done this before.

I need a format that will of course be accessible with JAWS and screen magnification. I will be starting out simple and as I go along add features. To begin with I want a blog and the ability to create links to my articles.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Jackie,

Glad to hear it was a non-issue for  you. 

 

I do use the Task List in Outlook.  It’s not my primary task list, but I do like it, especially for things that I need to do a week or further out.   The primary way I use it is to go to the list with Control 4.  Recall that I’m still in Outlook 2010, so I’m not sure if it will look different for you.  When you open the task list, focus is at the top of the list on a  line that I believe allows sighted users to click to open a new task. Using my arrow keys, I go through my task list to hear what I have to do.  There are lots of visual ways that sighted users can flag tasks and categorize them.  I supposed this works if JAWS will read the flags, but it’s too cumbersome for me, so I just simply go by name of the task and due date.  At least in my case, they are ordered from top to bottom starting with the most recent due date.  I have a few items with no due date and those are at the very top. 

 

To create a new one, hit alt N and a window will open up. Focus is in the place to name the task.  From here, the only things I add is a start date. Outlook will default the due date to the start date you entered. You can change it if you want.  I also have mine to set a reminder by default.  I think you can set this default option in the Outlook options.  You can also change it by tabbing through the fields.   When a task is due, I get a pop-up in the same window as any meeting alarms.  To clear a task, just hit delete on it in the task list.  The one caveat is if have something on your task list that is related to an email or meeting you have flagged for follow-up.  For example, if I send an email to someone and I want to be sure I get a reply by a certain date, I will go into my sent mail folder and highlight the message. On the context menu, I select the follow-up option, then either pick one of the options or hit custom to set a specific date.  This leaves the message in my Sent mail folder, but also adds it to my Task list.  When you want to delete the task, hitting delete in the task list will delete the task and the message. You’ll get a warning, so don’t panic.  Instead, what you want to do is to highlight the task and select the option to remove the follow-up flag from the context menu. I think it’s the last option on the context menu, so I will hit the application key, then arrow up once to hear “Remove” and hit enter. 

 

Is there something else specific you are having challenges with in Tasks that I may be able to address specifically?   In essence for me, I do get alarms, but I also go into my task list on a regular basis and just scroll through the list to refresh my mind of what’s on it.

 

I’m getting better as using the calendar by tabbing.  Not sur how helpful I can be there, but happy to help if I can.   I do also have my work email linked to my iPhone and can review my calendar and task list from the phone, which is nice.  I prefer how the phone can give me a simply list of my appointments in a list format so I don’t’ have to go day by day in Outlook.  Window Eyes had a function to do this in Outlook, but it doesn’t seem JAWS does, so I think I’ll be relying on my phone when I’m trying to get an overall feel for my work week.  I do also use the search function in the calendar to find certain events, such as when I cannot recall when my dentist appointment is.  Outlook will pull up the search results in a list format, so I can figure out the date and open the appointment, if needed.

This is strange. Because when I start from the search box when in the start menu, I only get web results in windows 10. But when I go to my documents and do a control-f from there, I can find the files I want to find in my folders; not sure subfolders are included or not.

Hi John,
assuming that the files are somewhere in your personal folder, you can do this from the search box in the start menu. Normally when you search for files using the start menu, it only searches the names of files. However, if you filter the search results for documents, then the contents are searched as well. To do this:
1. In the search box, type in a word or phrase as normal.
2. Tab twice to move to the filters list, which is laid out as a row of items.
3. Press right arrow to move to find results in documents, and press enter. The focus returns to the search box, and Jaws reads out the first item in the filtered list of results.

1. In the search box, type in a word or phrase as normal.
2. Tab twice to move to the filters list, which is laid out as a row of
items.
3. Press right arrow to move to find results in documents, and press
enter. The focus returns to the search box, and Jaws reads out the first
item in the filtered list of results.

Hi, David. I believe what John is asking is if there is a way to search for files in Windows 10 based on words contained inside files. This used to be possible in Windows XP, and I believe it is one thing we cannot now do since Windows 7. I miss this feature. I used to have a folder of recipes, and I could, for example, search for any of those text files that contain the word pistachio. This was nice, because it made it easy to find anything on the drive. It also used to be easier to change which drive was searched.

Hi John,
assuming that the files are somewhere in your personal folder, you can do this from the search box in the start menu. Normally when you search for files using the start menu, it only searches the names of files. However, if you filter the search results for documents, then the contents are searched as well. To do this:
1. In the search box, type in a word or phrase as normal.
2. Tab twice to move to the filters list, which is laid out as a row of items.
3. Press right arrow to move to find results in documents, and press enter. The focus returns to the search box, and Jaws reads out the first item in the filtered list of results.

David.

Actually I downloaded Jaws2018 and it corrected the problem.

maximize the notepad window, and try read line again.

I unloaded Jaws, went to run and typed in jaws18 /default. Jaws came
back up. I could tell it was the default as it was speaking very slow.

I then went into notepad and using the read line keys the text that Jaws
read prior to the line no longer occurs. So now what?

but there shouldn't be any. so if you checked, assuming you know how,
and there aren't any, that's good.

but did you try loading JAWS with it's defaults (insert+f4, spacebar,
windows+r, type JAWS followed by the version you're using followed by a
space and a slash and the word default, press enter), and trying the
read line with notepad, did the message still announce?

if so, consider performing a repair on JAWS.

I couldn't find any notepad files under user settings. How would I get to
the notepad files?

unload JAWS, and reload JAWS by pressing windows+r, type jaws followed
by the version you're using) /default, and press enter. now open
notepad, load a text file and issue the read line keystroke again. do
you get the same message?

if you do, navigate to your user settings and see if you have any
setting files for notepad. if you do, delete them, launch Notepad, load
a text file and issue the read line keystroke again. did the message get
announced again?

if so, you'd might want to do a repair.

Hello, I'm in note pad reading a document. There are times when I use the
jaws key and up arrow on the num pad and it says "unkown script call to:
reading Jaws version." What is causing this to occur? It doesn't happen in
MS word. Cheers Kevin
