Re: JAWS and Excel - problem reading cells still exists

Bill Tessore
 

I don’t know if this is the cause of your issue, but it may be worth looking at.
When I was still able to use ZoomText I learned that unless I expanded the width of a column I couldn’t see all the characters in the cell. Expanding that column would reveal that text I KNEW was there.

Hi all,

I hope others have different results, but I'm still experiencing the problem
of JAWS not being able to read text in cells within Excel when I press F2.

I have discovered that if I type 8 characters or less, I can press F2 and
arrow through the letters and make my edits. If the cell contains a word or
words with more than 8 characters, and if I press F2, JAWS cannot read the
text inside the cell. It appears it's the number of characters in a cell
that trips up JAWS.

Hmm, for whatever reason it seems as though VFO is struggling to fix this
problem since it has existed for quite a bit of time and different versions
of JAWS.

Forgot to add the following…

 

Office 2010 isn’t all that much different than office 2016, so you will not likely be missing out on any significant feature(s)—especially if these are not complex documents you must produce.

Re: Practice Online Forms

 

Jeremy,

            Thank you very much as well.  Since the point is practice with as many different web objects as possible, anything such as this is welcome.

New JAWS2018.1808.10.400 Build Update Download Links, + What's New in this Release

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Like the subject line says, download links + what's new is below.
 
32 Bit:
 
 
64 Bit:
 
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2018.1808.10 (August 2018)
 
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2018 between the July 2018 update and the August 2018 update.
 
Skype
 
Skype now offers three options on Windows 10.
 
1. You can continue using Skype Classic which is version 7 and works very well with JAWS. Note that Skype Classic is expected to be retired at some point
not yet known.
2. You can download and install the new Desktop version 8, which is now supported in this latest JAWS 2018 August update. See details below.
3. You can install the Universal App from the Microsoft Store. However, this is the least accessible at this time and we recommend you install Skype 7
or 8 for the best support.
 
For users moving to Skype 8, please be certain to download the version referred to as "Skype for Windows" which works well on Windows 10. Note that the
Universal App we are not recommending is referred to as "Skype for Windows 10".
 
For those using Skype version 8, we have added some additional keystrokes to help with navigation since these options are not offered in Skype. These commands
are:
 
• Move to the chat entry field: CTRL+INSERT+E
• Move to the chat history list: CTRL+INSERT+Y
• Move to the conversations list: CTRL+INSERT+N
 
You can also use the JAWS command INSERT+W while focused on Skype for a list of most of the keyboard commands you would want to know when using Skype.
For a full list from Microsoft, please visit the
Skype Hotkeys Web Page.
 
Tip: You can assign a keystroke such as ALT+CTRL+S to the Skype icon on the Desktop to quickly open Skype to answer an incoming call. If you are in another
application and you receive an incoming call alert, you can press your shortcut keystroke to open Skype, press INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB to read the
caller information, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+P or use TAB to choose Answer or Decline.
 
Other Changes
• Resolved an issue in Excel from Office 365 where JAWS was not correctly reading the contents of cells after pressing F2 to edit.
• If Contracted Braille Input is enabled, resolved an issue where various JAWS and Windows commands were not working as expected when performed from a
braille display such as the Focus Blue.
• Resolved a reported issue with the text of links in the JAWS Virtual Viewer not being shown on the braille display if status cells were turned off.
• Addressed a reported issue where the Amazon Kindle app would stop working when attempting to read tables in certain books.
• When configuring the High, Medium, or Low web verbosity levels in Settings Center, the start and end announcements for regions can now be turned off
or on in Edge.
• Addressed visual tracking issues with JAWS and Fusion when navigating web pages in Firefox 60 and later using the ARROW keys and Navigation Quick Keys.
• A customer reported that JAWS would unexpectedly stop speaking while navigating a particular document in Word. This is now fixed.
• When using the INSERT+SHIFT+R or WINDOWS+SEMICOLON commands in word to list revisions or display revisions in the Virtual Viewer, if the document contains
a lot of revisions, JAWS now plays a sound every few seconds as the list is being built. After 30 seconds, if all revisions have not yet been found, JAWS
plays a different tone, and only the revisions found up to that point are displayed.
• Resolved an issue where JAWS could sometimes close unexpectedly while reading an Outlook message using Say All.
• JAWS now includes a Turkish language braille table which can be selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.
• Corrected the pronunciation of some symbols in the French version of JAWS.
 
 
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Brian,

 

Though my suggestion below doesn’t directly answer your question regarding forms on the internet, Freedom Scientific has the following resource for those learning their way around the internet.

 

Surf's Up! Surfing the Internet with JAWS and MAGic –

https://is.gd/ndfQSb

 

Learn to use JAWS® screen reading software and MAGic® screen magnification software to read and navigate the Internet! Do you want to become a power JAWS

or MAGic user on the World Wide Web? Do you want to learn how JAWS or MAGic can help you navigate the vast resources of entertainment, education, and information

available on the Web? Surf's Up! - Surfing the Internet with JAWS and MAGic will teach you to use JAWS and MAGic to read and work with all types of HTML

pages, such as Web sites, Help systems, Web-based applications, and more. You'll learn how to use the powerful features of JAWS and MAGic to get the most

out of surfing the Web.

 

For new users, these pages present information and exercises that are designed to be followed in a specific order. If you skip around, you may miss some

important information, so it is recommended that you go through it the first time in the order shown below from beginning to end. In addition, many of

the exercise pages and keystroke command pages in Surf's Up either open in new browser windows or in new browser tabs, depending on how your version of

any particular browser is set up. You can press ALT+TAB to move between the different open windows, or CTRL+TAB to move between different tab pages in

the current browser session. Also remember to close the open windows by pressing ALT+F4 when you are finished with them, or close a single tab page by

pressing CTRL+F4.

Re: Balloons

Jeremy <jeremy.richards7@...>
 

Hi,

 

With certain Windows messages, as has been suggested, when you hear the balloon pop up, press the JAWS left click command which is numpad slash.

 

You can also press Windows key+A to show the Windows 10 action center. Now tab through the screen until you come across the list of messages. Once you find the list of messages, simply down arrow through them.

I assume this is a balloon.

During boot-up, my computer always dings and invites me to “click here to install” a printer utility.

How can I interact with that announcement? It does not stay on the screen long enough for me to do anything with it.

I’m running JAWS 2018 and Windows 10.

Enhancements in JAWS 2018.1808.10 (August 2018)

The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2018 between the July 2018 update and the August 2018 update.

To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page. You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.

Skype

Skype now offers three options on Windows 10.

1.       You can continue using Skype Classic which is version 7 and works very well with JAWS. Note that Skype Classic is expected to be retired at some point not yet known.

2.       You can download and install the new Desktop version 8, which is now supported in this latest JAWS 2018 August update. See details below.

3.       You can install the Universal App from the Microsoft Store. However, this is the least accessible at this time and we recommend you install Skype 7 or 8 for the best support.

For users moving to Skype 8, please be certain to download the version referred to as "Skype for Windows" which works well on Windows 10. Note that the Universal App we are not recommending is referred to as "Skype for Windows 10".

For those using Skype version 8, we have added some additional keystrokes to help with navigation since these options are not offered in Skype. These commands are:

·         Move to the chat entry field: CTRL+INSERT+E

·         Move to the chat history list: CTRL+INSERT+Y

·         Move to the conversations list: CTRL+INSERT+N

You can also use the JAWS command INSERT+W while focused on Skype for a list of most of the keyboard commands you would want to know when using Skype. For a full list from Microsoft, please visit the Skype Hotkeys Web Page.

Tip: You can assign a keystroke such as ALT+CTRL+S to the Skype icon on the Desktop to quickly open Skype to answer an incoming call. If you are in another application and you receive an incoming call alert, you can press your shortcut keystroke to open Skype, press INSERT+UP ARROW or INSERT+TAB to read the caller information, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+P or use TAB to choose Answer or Decline.

Other Changes

·         Resolved an issue in Excel from Office 365 where JAWS was not correctly reading the contents of cells after pressing F2 to edit.

·         If Contracted Braille Input is enabled, resolved an issue where various JAWS and Windows commands were not working as expected when performed from a braille display such as the Focus Blue.

·         Resolved a reported issue with the text of links in the JAWS Virtual Viewer not being shown on the braille display if status cells were turned off.

·         Addressed a reported issue where the Amazon Kindle app would stop working when attempting to read tables in certain books.

·         When configuring the High, Medium, or Low web verbosity levels in Settings Center, the start and end announcements for regions can now be turned off or on in Edge.

·         Addressed visual tracking issues with JAWS and Fusion when navigating web pages in Firefox 60 and later using the ARROW keys and Navigation Quick Keys.

·         A customer reported that JAWS would unexpectedly stop speaking while navigating a particular document in Word. This is now fixed.

·         When using the INSERT+SHIFT+R or WINDOWS+SEMICOLON commands in word to list revisions or display revisions in the Virtual Viewer, if the document contains a lot of revisions, JAWS now plays a sound every few seconds as the list is being built. After 30 seconds, if all revisions have not yet been found, JAWS plays a different tone, and only the revisions found up to that point are displayed.

·         Resolved an issue where JAWS could sometimes close unexpectedly while reading an Outlook message using Say All.

·         JAWS now includes a Turkish language braille table which can be selected in the Computer Braille Tables dialog box in Settings Center.

·         Corrected the pronunciation of some symbols in the French version of JAWS.

 

The latest version of JAWS can be downloaded using the links below. For new installations, download and save the executable file to your PC and install from there. Make sure to download the correct version (64-bit or 32-bit) for your computer.

Instructions to verify whether you have a 64-bit or 32-bit computer can be found at the bottom of this page.

Hi, Jessica. Yes, it is accessible, and I use it infrequently. Since, when you load the News app, your configuration with JAWS defaults to using the Touch Cursor, just TAB, and it will read the whole news article to you. There isn’t much of a way, however to go back and review sections of the article.

 

I find that if I have read an article with the News app, the best way to review it is with JAWS History (INSERT plus SPACE, followed by H. Then arrow up and down through the history to reread the news article as a text file.
