moderated Excel Issue

Randy Meyer
 

In the last week, I noticed Excel slowing down when I am entering and editing formulas.  It takes two seconds to say a character when I am arrowing through the formula.  I am using latest Jaws 2020 and latest MS office 365 downloaded to my computer.  Things get so slow that my computer basically freezes and I have to hit enter and give up editing the formula.

 

I have used Excel for a longtime and never had this issue until recently.  Does anyone have any suggestions for any changes I could make to improve the performance back to useable?

Hi Lary/all,

It occurs to me very often, especially when students send their essays. Having a braille display, what I do is press the appropriate cursor routing button where the last character of the previous page is, and just arrow to the right once. It usually goes to the correct page, and there are no more such jumpings.

                                                            Hope this helps,

                                                            Takis

Hi,

Not sure if I’ve sent something to this list about this.

Something has changed.
I used to be able to arrow through a document and  read it from beginning to end.

Now I hear at the end of page 1 dialogue I’ve written, and it goes to page 3 and skips page 2 etc.

I think I’ve fixed this issue before but don’t think I kept that piece of information.

I do not hear this in Narrator at all.  I do hear it with all versions of JAWS on my PC.

Thoughts?

Richard Turner’s advice eventually helped.

The problem is that when you deal with Buttons and Microsoft, there is no confirmation after you press enter on the button.

You have to go back in to the document to see if changes have taken effect.

Hi, Larry. Make sure in the Layout tab that columns is set to 1.

 

1. Click the Layout tab.

2. Click the Columns button and choose Two.

 

Also, if all else fails, switch from Print View to Web Layout View.

 

1. ALT plus F, T for Word Options.

2. Arrow down to Advanced.

3. Under General, check the Allow opening a document in Draft view check box.

4. Press ENTER on OK.

5. On the View tab, select Web Layout View in the Document Views group.

Richard and all:

 

I have seen this issue before, but am not yet experiencing it here.  I currently use Windows 10 with Office 365 and the latest version of Jaws 2020.

 

I’ll save these instructions for future reference, but wonder if there is a way to do this globally, rather than for each individual document?

 

Thanks for any additional suggestions.

With my wife’s help, I discovered two things.

One, make sure on the view tab you are on print view.

Also on the view tab, tab a bunch and make sure it doesn’t say Multipage after the zoom info.  If it does, arrow down to one page and hit enter.

I have had to do that with a couple of documents in the last few days.

Quite annoying.

Just as with Dropbox, once you signed into OneDrive with your Microsoft account allyou have do do is make sure all the files you want to sync are inside the OneDrive folder.

You do have to check OneDrive settings as by default it may keep content more in the cloud, but you can choose for everything to download so that a local copy is on your device.

I would like to start using Microsoft OneDrive so I can have the same files on my desktop computer and ElBraille computer.  Does anyone know where I can find tips on using OneDrive, or a tutorial?

 

I would like my files to be kept locally on each computer and constantly synchronized with OneDrive.  That way I could work on a file even if the internet is not available and it would synchronize and update when the internet became available.

 

Thank you for your help.

Richard,

I am using print tab, and my pages in the view tab were set to one page.

So unfortunately, the mystery continues.

Thanks.

Larry

I just noticed that too.

With my wife’s help, I discovered two things.

One, make sure on the view tab you are on print view.

Also on the view tab, tab a bunch and make sure it doesn’t say Multipage after the zoom info.  If it does, arrow down to one page and hit enter.

I have had to do that with a couple of documents in the last few days.

Quite annoying.

Hi,

Not sure if I’ve sent something to this list about this.

Something has changed.
I used to be able to arrow through a document and  read it from beginning to end.

Now I hear at the end of page 1 dialogue I’ve written, and it goes to page 3 and skips page 2 etc.

I think I’ve fixed this issue before but don’t think I kept that piece of information.

I do not hear this in Narrator at all.  I do hear it with all versions of JAWS on my PC.

Thoughts?

Larry

 

               


moderated OneDrive Tips or tutorial

Randy Meyer
 

I would like to start using Microsoft OneDrive so I can have the same files on my desktop computer and ElBraille computer.  Does anyone know where I can find tips on using OneDrive, or a tutorial?

 

I would like my files to be kept locally on each computer and constantly synchronized with OneDrive.  That way I could work on a file even if the internet is not available and it would synchronize and update when the internet became available.

 

Thank you for your help.

Hello everyone,

 

Please recommend tutorial materials and group lists for Google Meets, Canvas, and Wordpress. These are new adoptions at my work place and I have to learn them immediately.

 

Many thanks.
