O.K. Wow!  I did not know that you could copy email addresses from an Excel sheet to an email message.
Thanks for this.

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.

limits the search strictly to Groups.io.  And you can go "deeper down" by extending past the top level of a site, too, so that it only looks in part of the site's structure.

And, to follow on Brian’s steps, you can also simply do a web search for something like “office accessibility groups.io” and chances are the first or second result will be the home page of the group you are looking for.

I am perfectly happy to share addresses for other groups on any given group, as there are many times where any one given group may serve as a "feeder" for the other.

That being said, I'm also tired of having to do so, so I will again give the step-by-step directions for any Groups.io member to find the group email addresses for some random group that they need to search for first.

1. Navigate to the Groups.io Find a Group Page.

2. Navigate to the Search edit box.  Enter a couple of search terms that narrow things down.  In this case using [Office Accessibility] will work fine.

3. Use the H browsing shortcut to jump from heading to heading.  The first is the search result list name, "Publicly Listed Groups," and all subsequent ones are links to the home page of the group itself.  In this case if the two previously mentioned search terms are used, the list is only one entry long and the link to the home page of that group appears.  Once you've landed on the group you think you might want, activate the link to its Groups.io home page.

4. On every Groups.io home page for a group, there is a section called, "Group email addresses," that contains exactly what its name implies.  I use the screen reader search (INS+CTRL+F) to search for subscribe, and land directly on the group's subscribe address, after I've taken the time to look at the group description to make certain it's the one I really want.  Of course, the unsubscribe, post, etc., addresses are all there.

Yes, That's the way I do it, too, John. I have made a shortcut to the Favorites folder located in C:\users\"Username"\, and can select any favorite from that folder, or drop newly created shortcuts into that folder. The thing I might warn of is that after August of this year, Internet Explorer will no longer be supported. If they take Internet Explorer away in a future update of Windows 10, that Favorites folder may go away. So I would suggest copying that folder to another location before Internet Explorer is removed from Windows 10, and there is a chance that Windows will remove that folder as well.

Rahul, If you have access to your written text as in a word or text document, you might try editing it in such a way that manageable chunks are on one line. I do this with voice over scripts. I will only have a few words on a line, usually ending where a natural break in the speech would be like where a coma or period exists. Then I have JAWS read at a speed that is confortable and use my down arrow to read line by line and speak as I hear a few words. This does take some practice, but it can be done as I know some broadcasters that do this very thing.
HTH.

I assume you are talking about something like a phone script for a
call center or the like.

If so I suspect that is a tough one. I might suggest you find some
list dedicated to simultaneous language translation (that is, people
who can listen to someone speak and at the same time translate to some
other language).

If there is some way to learn that rather than some people can while
others simply can't then however they manage to get both parts of
their brain to not override would seem to apply to this situation as
well.

It takes some practice. I’ve been doing this for a number of years, I am a pastor, and use voiceover for my notes on Sunday. The concept would be the same with jaws however. Couple of things, be familiar with the content as much as you can before you start and if you can format the document in such a way that jazz only reads a small portion of any one time. Just before you are ready to start your next section advanced jazz and allow what you hear to be slightly ahead of what you’re speaking. You can do it be patient with yourself as it takes as I said quite a bit of practice.

That is great to know.
I didn't realize that the adobe ePub version wasn't DRM protected.
I may have to revisit that the next time I cannot find a book on Bookshare.

If you get one loaded, you might try using Jaws OCR.

Hi again, Gerald. When you did the paste operation, were you in the actual list of bookmarks in the folder where you wanted to move the imported bookmarks. It won't work if you are only in the folder list.

Hi, Tom. To move the bookmarks imported from Internet Explorer,

 

1. Open Google Chrome.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus O to open Bookmarks Manager.

3. TAB to the folders list, and open Imported from Internet Explorer.

4. TAB to the list of bookmarks, and select all with CONTROL plus A.

5. Press the Applications key or SHIFT plus F10, and Arrow down to CUT, and press ENTER.

6. Open the folder to which you want to move the bookmarks.

7. Perform a paste operation with CONTROL plus V.

 

That should move them all at once to the new folder.

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.

 

Thanks for any help.

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

Richard Turner
 

Well, the best way would be to be able to read braille at the rate you wish to sound good. That is what most call center employees do.

Next would be doing what you said, and practice, practice, practice.
You are trying to build up the skills like someone who does simultaneous translation like they do at the United Nations and have the speeches given translated by people in a ton of languages and the listener just has to select the correct channel on their headphones for their language.

Only, you are just wanting to repeat the same language.
It takes a huge amount of concentration which is very tiring.
You probably also want to be sure you are getting enough physical exercise as that helps as well with mental stamina.

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

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
