David:

 

This is interesting.

 

I’ll save for future reference, especially if I can’t directly get new members added into the group as it currently exists.

 

Why this has become so difficult recently is beyond me.

 

Used to be so easy.

Hi Tom and others,

 

This is not a direct answer to your question, but I have always found that editing a contact group in Outlook is a big pain and not worth the trouble, especially if the list is fairly big and people are frequently needing to be added or deleted to the group. If you use Excel, even at just a basic level, it is much simpler. You can maintain the list of these addresses in Excel, easily adding or deleting members as needed.

 

To address an email message, In the Excel file were you have listed the addresses in a column, simply select the list by starting on the top address and pressing Shift down arrow until you have selected all the addresses. If the list is long, from the top, instead press Control Shift down arrow and that will select all the way to the bottom of the list.

Now press Control C to copy.

Open Outlook and press Control N to start preparing a message. Then press Control V in either the To or BCC field to paste them all in. Then complete the rest of the message and send it off.

Hello again, everyone.

 

I recently have imported my Internet Explorer favorites into Google Chrome, but currently, they are in a separate list called “imported from Windows Internet Explorer.

 

How can I migrate this list over to the main bookmarks bar in Google Chrome?

 

I did this once, but can’t recall how I did it.

 

I’m using the latest Jaws 2021 update on a Windows 10 PC here.

moderated Listening to text with JAWS and reproducing it simultaneously: 3 specific questions

Rahul Bajaj
 

Hello,

I have the following questions:

First, I normally listen to JAWS at 65%. Even after slowing it down,
if I try to listen to the text line-by-line, I find that by the time I
am done reading and have to speak, I am only able to retain 40-50% of
what I have heard. So I end up losing some content.
On the other hand, if I listen to JAWS one word at a time, I find that
I end up being much too slow, such that my speech sounds disjointed
and halting.

Second, I am wondering how your experience differs between verbally
reproducing new content [i.e. material you have never read before]
versus content you are already familiar with.
Put simply, would it pay to familiarize oneself with the content to be
reproduced beforehand?

Third and lastly, can you suggest some pointers for building up one's
capacity, to be able to get better at doing this i.e. listening to
JAWS and speaking out what it is reading at the same time?


Best,
Rahul

I'll also add, as a general practice, it's always good to try doing something you know worked when you did it last, but is not working now, with your backup screen reader.  It allows you to rule-in or out the screen reader itself in many cases.

My post on the Office Accessibility Group:  Creating a Contact Group in Outlook 2016 and Later

Unless something's changed very recently, the process should be the same.

Another member noted in October that there was a weirdness with JAWS 2020 and dealing with a contact group.  I have no idea whether that was ever resolved, as I haven't touched JAWS in ages now.  See: https://groups.io/g/office-accessibility/message/778

Hi, Tom. The place you're going wrong is that, to access the Bookmarks Bar for more than just clicking a bookmark, you must use CONTROL plus SHIFT plus O to access Bookmarks Manager in Chrome. Once you open Bookmarks Manager with CONTROL plus SHIFT plus O, TAB twice to get to the Bookmarks Bar. If you are unable to do it, you can give me a call, and I can walk you through it over the phone, or we can do a JAWS Tandem, and I can find out why your Bookmarks Bar isn't showing up.

I tried a similar set of steps, but couldn’t find the main bookmarks folder.

 

I think the main bookmarks folder in Google Chrome is called “bookmarks bar”.

 

The strange thing is that I now have two lists of bookmarks in Google Chrome.

 

One list is called “imported from Internet Explorer”, while the other is accessed when I do an alt F followed by the letter B. for bookmarks.  I am assuming that this latter folder is the main bookmarks bar folder, but I can’t seem to copy and paste into it.

 

Let me know if I’m heading in a useful direction, or where I might be going wrong.

Van Lant, Robin
 

Sandra,

I’m only in Outlook 2016, so I don’t know if Outlook 2019 handles attachments a bit differently. Are  you allowing Outlook to open the attachment as a preview?  I find that doesn’t work well with speech.  I’d recommend using Shift Tab or Insert A to bring focus to the attachments, then copying the one you  want to your documents folder and opening it from there in whatever program is appropriate. If you are simply hitting enter on the attachment, it might be opening in preview mode right there in Outlook.  I recall this being a default setting in Outlook, but I changed that so long ago I’m not positive if I have the steps right.  I think you might want to disable “live preview” in the Outlook Options.  It’s under the General Tab.

Hello, everyone.

 

After a recent Microsoft 365 update, I am now unable to easily navigate and add members to an already-existing E-mail group in Outlook.

 

The procedures for doing this have apparently changed, and I haven’t been able to access the needed options, even with sighted assistance.

 

I have contacted Freedom Scientific about this, and they tell me this is a Microsoft issue, not a Jaws issue.

 

If someone has figured out a way to do this, please post to the list.

 

I’m using Microsoft 365 with the latest Jaws 2021 update on a Windows 10 PC.

 

Thank you!
