Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

That switches synthesizers, if he wants to select voices within synths, he needs to look under voices-voice adjustment in the main JAWS menu.

hi there,
if you configured the voicess properly,
press ctrl insert s to bring up the list and, use up and down arro
keys to select the voices, once you selected the voice, just press
enter to activate the voice.

I hope, I am cleare.

That is just exactly what I wanted!

After you press Control+P for Print, why not just use the shortcut key for "Pages" which is Alt+G, then tab once, specify your page or page range and you are done.

Subject: Quick way to find the page range in Adobi reader?

 

Hi

I have a payroll report that is several pages sometimes only 2 but as many as 20.  I need to print a hard copy of the last page.

When I use WE I do a  Mouse find for the word “All”. Then I would use the mouse to read the different radio selections down to the page range box. Now I know how many pages there are in the  document 1 – 8 or 1 – 15 however many there are, I arrowed back up to the page range selection and click that radio button tab once to the edit box and type the number of the last page and press enter to print.

I can’t figure out the quick way to do this with JAWS. The JAWS find command will not find all. It always fails.

It is a lot of tabbing to get to the radio buttons and the page range is just past that

 

Thanks for your time

Shannon

Context of sentences, too?

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

When you do this, can you figure out where the misspelled word is by pressing insert c for getting any context—reading the sentence/whatever to which the word pertains? Also, does it work in a Word document? Just for fun, I’ll edit my sociology notes that way later on, figuring this out for myself but keep this thread on here anyway for others.

Re: jump to Spelling errors in Outlook 2010

Shannon
 

Paul , thanks for this. I didn't know that was a choice. I just tried it and
that command works for me too.
The Alt F7 is just a bit different. It just takes the curser focus to the
word in the application that is marked as incorrect and from there pressing
the context key gives the choices of correction.
The spell check dialog talks too much for most of what I need.
Thanks for the pointer.

I have not done this yet, but I'm sure they are saying that once you are
in the spell check dialog, alt-f7 focuses Jaws on the misspelled word and
opens the application menu so you can pick the correction.
I think it was assumed you were already in the spell checker either by
using f7 or from the menus.

Another step in the dialogue, not just pressing okay

Ashleigh Piccinino
 

Hello,

     As you press the CTRL insert and s command, you can also make the voice the default or use it in another app you happen to be running. If you note the first item on this dialogue, you should be able to use the default—shift tab if you don’t hear JAWS say, “for default” first. However, the press of the tab key once will get you to “for …” for your app in question. Of course, you cannot choose a person, just the synth, so be aware of that. Yet, just press enter/okay after you’ve made your selection. To test it, go back into that app and notice the voice/synth change automatically. Need any more help? Feel free to write back.

Subject: Open Book & Jaws 18

 

Hello,

 

I’m using Open Book version 9 and Jaws 18 …… I can’t get Open Book to scan a document.  Usually I open the program and press the space bar to scan.  When I press the space bar to scan it says “Open Book untitled one”.  If I press the space bar again it says “Acquisition canceled”.

 

Can anybody help? …… I’ve never had this problem before.

 

Thanks,

Laura

Thank you …… I sent an email out a while ago letting everybody know I got the problem solved …… I unplugged the USB for the scanner and plugged it back in and it works fine now …… Just like you suggested.

Laura,

 

IF it did work in the past, and your Pearl camera or scanner are turned on, then likely Openbook does not find your scanning device. Try closing Openbook, unplug the USB for scanning device, plug it back in, and then launch Openbook.

Laura,
 
Unplug your scanner, and then plug it in, with Openbook not running. Then launch Openbook. Likely OB has just lost the USB connection to your scanner.
...or is your scanner turned on?

This was all setup for me about a month ago and has been working fine until today.  I really don’t know about how to setup or much of anything else about this kind of stuff.  Is there a simple way to fix this problem? …… Not sure why this is a problem just out of the blue.

Did you set up the scanner in openbook before you tri to select it?

If there is no devices set up there will be no choice in the box and if it says scanner it is the defalt but will not work if you did not set up the scanner first through openbook

After I press enter on device selection it tells me there is a combo box to select the device.  I’ve pressed alt plus down arrow and alt plus up arrow and can’t open the combo box.  Is there another way to open this combo box?

I went to advanced in the menu bar

Down to select device and hit enter

Then just up or down arrow to the device I want to use.

Then hit enter to make that one the one to use.

It’s in the advanced tab under “device selection …” There, you should be ale to select your scanner and all. Please e-mail the group with more questions like this when you have them.

Happy scanning,

Hi Laura,

 

Did you check to see if the correct scanner is selected? I can’t quite recall where to go for this, either “Advanced > Devices, or Launch > devices?

I have not used OnniPage for years and years. When I tried it, the work arounds to use a screen reader were a lot of work.
I have to admit, I didn't have to buy OpenBook originally, just paid for a few, very early upgrades, then got on the beta team, so It hasn't been a financial burden for me.
But, if I were starting from scratch today, I would use OCR on my iPhone and not bother with the computer.
What version of OmniPage are you using and what work arounds do you have to do?
Thanks,
Richard

Carolyn,

I have not done this yet, but I'm sure they are saying
that once you are in the spell check dialog, alt-f7 focuses
Jaws on the misspelled word and opens the application menu
so you can pick the correction.
I think it was assumed you were already in the spell
checker either by using f7 or from the menus.

Alt + F7 will work in Word, but I've never tried it in
Outlook. It jumps to the next misspelt work, highlights is

Good morning again,

Is there a key combination that will jump to the
spelling errors in word and outlook 2010, so the
applications key can be used to correct the misspelling?

The spell checker F7 works but is a little more than I
want to hear.



Thanks

As do I.

But the question was to get the word in context I believe.

Two people offered alt-f7 as the way to do that, and the original questioner said that the manual said insert+f7.



When I try alt+f7 in Outlook 2016 running Windows 10; Outlook crashes and restarts and there is no sign of the message I was spell checking.

Insert+f7 worked the one time I tried it where it spelled the misspelling, then the corrected suggestion and I could either tab to ignore, add or change, etc.
