Google calendar useability

Joseph Norton
 

Hi listers:

 

I am looking into doing some appointment setting for a customer who uses Google Calendar to show his availability.

 

How accessible is this and can anyone give any tips for most effective use?

 

Thanks!

Re: Which internet browser do you prefer and why?

 

Well, I usually want text and what good is it if I use the other setting if it doesn’t work 8 out of 10 times, before I changed it most of the time if I highlighted stuff with the virtual cursor and pressed Control+C nothing got copied. If one of my sighted employees does it with the mouse it works fine and it works fine with the virtual cursor setting so it’s good enough for me. In fact, I usually just want text without formatting and since I normally paste said text into Notepad so I can manipulate it the way I want it makes little difference since any formatting is removed anyways when you paste into Notepad.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Just so you are aware:

With the "From Virtual Cursor" setting, text is copied as plain text without formatting, pictures, and HTML attributes.

With the "Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight" setting, the text and elements you select are highlighted onscreen as you press selection keys from the keyboard just as it would
be in programs like Word Processors. The content is then copied with all formatting.

The default setting is Full Content Using Onscreen Highlight.

I always had one issue with Chrome and that was that it was very unreliable to copy any text. Last week I spoke to FS support about something else and ended up asking the guy. He told me to open Chrome, go into the quick settings with Jaws Key+V and type the word “select” into the search box, then tab to the results.

You end up on a virtual cursor option called “Select and Copy From”, by default this is set to Full content using onscreen highlight”.

If you press the spacebar it changes to “Virtual Cursor” and if it is set to this copying works perfectly.

I still have a few sites where Chrome doesn’t work and then I go back to IE, but for the most part Chrome is very good.

I guess now with the upcoming Jaws 2018 we’ll see how good Edge support is/will become, but in my opinion browsers are like hammers to a carpenter or saws to a woodworker, you have several and use the one which works best for the particular job or, in this case, website. They are after all free, there are no problems having Chrome and Firefox installed on a Windows 10 machine in addition to IE and Edge which are there by default so why not try each for what you do and decide what works best for you.

Also some of the sluggishness or crashing isnt IE it is Jaws and it happens with Firefox and Chrome just not as often from what people say but then again I dont have that much trouble with IE.

Margaret,

The Word 2016 instructions Steve gave below also seem relevant for Word 2010, so I would believe they are also relevant for 2013.  Give the second, longer instructions below a try. 

 

Easy way: whenever you do this and JAWS says "copyright", press Backspace once. When you press the right parenth key, Word changes what you've typed into the copyright symbol and JAWS echoes this. pressing Backspace immediately undoes the change.

 

 

 

More long-winded way: Press Alt, F, T to open the Options dialogue.

 

DownArrow to Proofing

 

Tab to AutoCorrect Options and press Enter to open the AutoCorrect dialogue

 

You should be in an edit area. Type (c), that's left parenth c right parenth

 

Tab to the Delete button and press it

 

OK out of both dialogues

 

You should find now typing (c) doesn't give you a copyright symbol at all.

 

 

 

Hope that helps,

Whenever I type a document in Word 2016, and I number a line as -parentheses, the letter c, closed parentheses -, it always reads "copyright". It is a little annoying for me to keep hearing this. It does it automatically when I type in Word 2016; I am not inserting the "copyright" symbol from the list. Is there a way to stop JAWS from reading the "c" as "copyright"? Thanks. I am running Windows 8.1 with JAWS 16.

I also meant to say that the aspect ratio is maintained, and that's part of the reason for the rotation on portrait orientation pictures.

If you know that all the photos you're working on are the more typical landscape orientation no rotation comes into play at all, so keep that in mind.  My most frequent use of this utility is downsizing photos taken at very high resolution to make them "web posting friendly," which usually means either 640x480 or 1024x768.

Hi James,

You can set the spacing for a document before typing.  If you have already typed the document, you can make changes by selecting the portion you want to change and then pressing the spacing key combo you desire.  This action will only change the portion you select. 

You can make as many changes as is necessary for your document.

We have to remember that Microsoft trashed accessibility for the Edge browser which comes with
Windows 10.  Edge replaces internet Explorer, which is now legacy.

I'm expecting huge progress from Freedom Scientific regarding Edge for the next major release of Jaws.

But: to your specific question: Chrome is pulling ahead of Firefox as far as I am concerned.  But there isn't a clear winner.

Install both, and if a site fails on specific features with one browser, go to the alternative.

Re: Which internet browser do you prefer and why?

Hi all. I prefer chrome or Firefox. I haven't used Internet explorer for a long time. I find it clunky, unwieldy, and unstable. I was constantly getting issues where jaws seemed to believe that the menubar was on so I simply stopped using it. I also used to get the "page unresponsive" error or it just used to simply stop working altogether and I had to close it down. I am still on good old windows seven and so maybe if I were using Windows 10 things might be different. Up until recently I only had JAWS 16 as well but I found a massive difference since upgrading to 18. Also, like others, I like the fact that with both Firefox and chrome you can simply sign in and have your bookmarks transferred over to any computer that has the same browsers. I wondered whether the issues I had with Internet Explorer were something to do with my computer, but when I was at a friends house this weekend I had cause to use their computer. They are still using Internet Explorer and Windows 7 and, I have to be honest, I found similar issues there. I will be relieved to be using chrome and Firefox again :-)

You just need something that can download, decrypt, edit then upload a word document? It has to be small and easy to carry?

Just get a Ipad and a full size bluetooth keyboard and install word on it. It doesnt even have to be the newest gen. Save some money and get a used 2nd or 3rd gen.
Not sure about the cost of word for the Ipad...

Hi gang: Recently, I related to you a horror incident where I accepted a password-protected document as a translation assignment and ran into several issues, one being a messed-up [normal] Word template. After many trials and tribulations, I got that straightened out. The same agency just sent me an inquiry about doing a large project. These are, with the exception of system crashes and messed-up templates resulting from encryption, good jobs, nice and text-based.

 

My thought is to find an affordable send-and-receive device that will let me inoculate my regular desktop machine from the hassles of inadvertent changes caused by these file transfers. I did ask one of the agency directors if anybody else had had difficulty with this encryption issue, and she said, sighing, “yes.”

 

Advice appreciated regarding:

operating system—assignments tend to be Word documents.

compatibility with JAWS?

Tablet, netbook, or laptop? (slimness and portability preferred).

Keyboard, external or built-in? I do have a cordless Logitech Keyboard that I use on my music computer. It has a little transmitter unit that’s USB connected. Could I use that in case I need an external keyboard? Or would a Bluetooth one be better, or one that’s incorporated on the device? I’m not overly fond of the flat on-screen keyboards, typing on that is slow.

Brands—Dell Inspiron, Lenovo, Acer?

Software--—I have Office already installed by Dell when I bought my desktop. would I have to buy that or do some of these devices have Office installed?

I realize I need to ask questions if I check devices out in a store, but if any of you have some pointers, it would help me head in the right direction.

Re: Which internet browser do you prefer and why?

 

Chrome I smy choice also, very fast and I like the fact that if you use multiple computers as I do and I sign in to Chrome with my gmail account all settings, extensions and so o I set up on any computer also become available on all others.

I always had one issue with Chrome and that was that it was very unreliable to copy any text. Last week I spoke to FS support about something else and ended up asking the guy. He told me to open Chrome, go into the quick settings with Jaws Key+V and type the word “select” into the search box, then tab to the results.

You end up on a virtual cursor option called “Select and Copy From”, by default this is set to Full content using onscreen highlight”.

If you press the spacebar it changes to “Virtual Cursor” and if it is set to this copying works perfectly.

I still have a few sites where Chrome doesn’t work and then I go back to IE, but for the most part Chrome is very good.

I guess now with the upcoming Jaws 2018 we’ll see how good Edge support is/will become, but in my opinion browsers are like hammers to a carpenter or saws to a woodworker, you have several and use the one which works best for the particular job or, in this case, website. They are after all free, there are no problems having Chrome and Firefox installed on a Windows 10 machine in addition to IE and Edge which are there by default so why not try each for what you do and decide what works best for you.

IE, Firefox once in awile and chrome from time to time. I really dont like the History or bookmark layout in either Firefox or Chrome.
Also some of the sluggishness or crashing isnt IE it is Jaws and it happens with Firefox and Chrome just not as often from what people say but then again I dont have that much trouble with IE.
