Re: Office 2016

A few suggestions:

 

Microsoft have very good lists of keystrokes available for all of their Office applications. These can be found on their Web site. Just make sure you locate the references for the correct version of each of the programs (i.e., the Windows 2016 version).

 

You can find some of what you need by navigating and familiarizing yourself with the ribbons. However, some functions are found deep within multiple layers of dialogs. You can try the Alt+q command within Microsoft Word, Outlook and possibly other MS-Office programs, which lets you search the available functionality by entering key words. If this doesn’t help, I often find that it’s faster to perform a Web search using my preferred search engine to find an article describing what I’m looking for than it is to locate it within the complex menu structures of Microsoft Office applications.

Hi everyone,

 

I am new to this group and new to JAWS 18 & Office 2016.  I am needing tutorials or guides to get me up and running on these. I was using 2010 with JAWS 15 so I have a lot to learn J

Re: Office 2016

Hi Diane,

 

What I am suggesting is that your office would function just fine with you on an older version of Office; the file systems are completely compatible.  I would approach your technology folks, since they would be the ones who would need to say this was okay.  I am sure they will, unless there is some issue I am not familiar with.  I would sure ask.  If they approve it, your office will save the cost of an upgrade license.  If you want to chat about this off-list, my email is ttford@....  I have some background in the issues you are facing, and it is often just something that was not thought of when your office decided to upgrade.

 

Windows 10 and JAWS 18 will to be a problem with Office 2010 or 2013.

 

So before you spend a lot of time learning how to use 2016 with JAWS, why not just ask?  I suspect they will be fine and simply never thought to check with you.  For sighted folks, the differences are not as much of an issue since the visual layout is supposed to be somewhat intuitive.  So they do not realize just how much extra effort you will spend, and probably for no benefit at all, other than being able to say you can operate 2016.  That may be a goal in itself, but if not, consider the above.

Hi Diane,

 

Do you need to use Office 2016?  I tried 2016 when I upgraded to Windows 10, and found that Word was hardly recognizable in terms of how things worked with JAWS.  I went back to Office 2010, 2013 would also be what you are used to.  Just a thought, since the Word files are totally compatible between those versions, so it would not bother anyone using 2016 with you using 2010 or 2013.  If I am wrong on this, more knowledgeable folks on this list will probably have the answer.

I’m using the JAWS  virtual ribbons but did find where you were talking about. Seems to take one to the same place regardless if in Word, excel, etc. Anyway, mine is set to automatically update so I guess anytime there is one pushed out I’ll get it.

Hello,

 

I would love to hear people's feedback regarding the Excel issues of late.

Just now I wanted to catch up on some work where I have to use Excel. I think most of us know how Excel has been crashing lately especially on Windows 7 PC's with Jaws 18. Jaws 16 seemed to be the only work-around for now for Windows 7. On my Windows 10 computers Excel seemed to be fine with Jaws 18.

I opened Excel on my Windows 10 desktop and noticed that a bunch of dates which I had set to be formatted so they include the day of the week, e.g. Monday, August 28, 2017, Tuesday, August 29, 2017 etc. only displayed as August 28, 2017, August 29, 2017 etc. I pressed Control+1 and looked at the date formats available and to my amazement did not see an option any more to include the week day.

I then opened the same Excel file on my Windows 7 computer expecting it to crash as soon as I tried to actually do anything, in any case, the date at the very top of my sheet showed up as "Wednesday, August 30, 2017.

I pressed Control+Page Up to go back a sheet again expecting it to crash, but thought I try it and to my surprise it went to Tuesday, August 29, 2017 and Excel did not crash.

I opened a new Excel file, typed in a bunch of values in 3 or 4 fields, added them up and everything was fine.

I wonder if Microsoft pushed out an update which fixes the issue? Not sure how to check when the last Office update was, but needless to say I am delighted that I apparently can work in my Excel file again on my Windows 7 PC which also has my Sage 50 accounting software on it.

Accessibility in so many ways is making big forward strides, but in other ways it's the opposite. Yesterday I finally finished setting up a new Windows 10 PC at my retail store and finally managed to get it to see the other Windows 7 computers on the network and to let me save to my main file storage drive on one of these Windows 7 PC's. Then I installed Sage 50 on that PC only to find out I can't use this accounting package which I have been using since it was Bedford Accounting for DOS back in 1991. On my Windows 7 PC's I can work with it efficiently and quickly, but I have to use the Jaws cursor for a number of things. In Windows 10 even the main program screen where you select whether you want to use the General ledger, do bank reconciliation, set up a supplier, use the purchases or payments journal etc. does not read anything. I can still get around that because I know I have to tab 5 times after it opens to get to the General journal, 6 times for reconciliation, 8 times for Purchases etc. Unfortunately when I enter an invoice everything works great until I want to check the total which I have to do using the Jaws cursor. It reads almost nothing and definitely not what I need it to read. Also, sometimes after I enter an invoice I might be off by a cent or two due to rounding errors with tax calculations and I then have to go to the tax amount for one of the items I am entering which is only possible with the Jaws cursor, double click it and then I can manually change it. No such luck on Windows 10 and while I was hoping to soon upgrade all my computers to Windows 10 at work right now I just don't know what I should do. Well, I guess I do know, I can't upgrade if I can't use this accounting software and I was not planning to spend hundreds and hundreds of Dollars right now to change to something like Quick Books and buy the expensive scripts for it. Those last few weeks have been a real mess. Anyways, I just hope my apparent success using Excel is not some odd thing and that soon it will go back to being what it was for the last two weeks.

accessible with Windows 10, but when I try to install 17.3 and use it with

crashed. So I was just wondering if anybody may have already installed the
latest version of Kodi, and tried it out?

Hello,

 

I would love to hear people's feedback regarding the Excel issues of late.

Just now I wanted to catch up on some work where I have to use Excel. I think most of us know how Excel has been crashing lately especially on Windows 7 PC's with Jaws 18. Jaws 16 seemed to be the only work-around for now for Windows 7. On my Windows 10 computers Excel seemed to be fine with Jaws 18.

I opened Excel on my Windows 10 desktop and noticed that a bunch of dates which I had set to be formatted so they include the day of the week, e.g. Monday, August 28, 2017, Tuesday, August 29, 2017 etc. only displayed as August 28, 2017, August 29, 2017 etc. I pressed Control+1 and looked at the date formats available and to my amazement did not see an option any more to include the week day.

I then opened the same Excel file on my Windows 7 computer expecting it to crash as soon as I tried to actually do anything, in any case, the date at the very top of my sheet showed up as "Wednesday, August 30, 2017.

I pressed Control+Page Up to go back a sheet again expecting it to crash, but thought I try it and to my surprise it went to Tuesday, August 29, 2017 and Excel did not crash.

I opened a new Excel file, typed in a bunch of values in 3 or 4 fields, added them up and everything was fine.

I wonder if Microsoft pushed out an update which fixes the issue? Not sure how to check when the last Office update was, but needless to say I am delighted that I apparently can work in my Excel file again on my Windows 7 PC which also has my Sage 50 accounting software on it.

Accessibility in so many ways is making big forward strides, but in other ways it's the opposite. Yesterday I finally finished setting up a new Windows 10 PC at my retail store and finally managed to get it to see the other Windows 7 computers on the network and to let me save to my main file storage drive on one of these Windows 7 PC's. Then I installed Sage 50 on that PC only to find out I can't use this accounting package which I have been using since it was Bedford Accounting for DOS back in 1991. On my Windows 7 PC's I can work with it efficiently and quickly, but I have to use the Jaws cursor for a number of things. In Windows 10 even the main program screen where you select whether you want to use the General ledger, do bank reconciliation, set up a supplier, use the purchases or payments journal etc. does not read anything. I can still get around that because I know I have to tab 5 times after it opens to get to the General journal, 6 times for reconciliation, 8 times for Purchases etc. Unfortunately when I enter an invoice everything works great until I want to check the total which I have to do using the Jaws cursor. It reads almost nothing and definitely not what I need it to read. Also, sometimes after I enter an invoice I might be off by a cent or two due to rounding errors with tax calculations and I then have to go to the tax amount for one of the items I am entering which is only possible with the Jaws cursor, double click it and then I can manually change it. No such luck on Windows 10 and while I was hoping to soon upgrade all my computers to Windows 10 at work right now I just don't know what I should do. Well, I guess I do know, I can't upgrade if I can't use this accounting software and I was not planning to spend hundreds and hundreds of Dollars right now to change to something like Quick Books and buy the expensive scripts for it. Those last few weeks have been a real mess. Anyways, I just hope my apparent success using Excel is not some odd thing and that soon it will go back to being what it was for the last two weeks.

Sieghard

George,

 

Where are you seeing this? Did it install automatically (my default) or did it give some type indication it was doing so?

I forgot to add that I had an easier time of using the combo box at my bank and on my email program as well. Does anybody know why? Was that part of the same update?

Hi Bill,

Thanks, but it is turned on.  It was just one of those flukes, like my message being added to the bottom of my previously sent email, except in the case of the Notepad message, that one totally disappeared.  Take care.

Hi, Carol. This is why it’s important to have the “loss of focus” announcement on in JAWS. Sometimes, JAWS loses focus in a window. If this were to happen while composing a document, none of the text would be typed into the document.

 

Use Insert plus V to get to Quick Settings. Arrow down to General, and the loss of focus option is in that category.

OK, something funny is going on here.  This has happened to me twice in the last couple of days.  I wrote the command you listed, but slightly different.  I wrote alt plus p and then m.  I then went on to explain about the different types of margins that are already there to choose from. 

The other day, I was taking notes in Notepad and went back to read them and everything was gone that I had typed in.  There was other material above that section, but the new portion disappeared.  I was using Jaws for the Notepad and am now using WE for the email. 

I mean, this is strange because I could hear everything I had typed in on both documents.  Oh well, I guess it must have typed with no audible ink left on the ribbon, grin.  I guess I had better quit fooling around and get back to my email.

Yes it does. I thought about it later and came to the same conclusion. I usually don’t do a lot of writing, but a client of mine does. She’s taking a ESL course and needed help with a lot of the Jaws commands and standard windows commands.

One more question though. What is the best way to set a Margin within word? I usually use the Center text control E, or paragraph indent by tabbing, but if there is a set way to pass this on to her, I would like to know.

Thanks again.

If you think about what you want to do, the combos are easy.  Control 1 for single spacing
control 2 for double spacing
control 5 for 1.5 spacing.

I hope this clears up your question.

Hi James,

You can set the spacing for a document before typing.  If you have already typed the document, you can make changes by selecting the portion you want to change and then pressing the spacing key combo you desire.  This action will only change the portion you select. 

You can make as many changes as is necessary for your document.

Hey Carol, Somehow I knew you had the answer to this. I follow your post regularly. Is this while typing a document, or does this need to be done first?

Thanks again.

Double spacing is control-2, single is control-1 and 1.5 spacing is control-5.  I put the others there in case you might need them some time.

Hi all, What is the keystroke to doublespace your document within word for 2007? Will the same keystrokes apply to 2010, 2013, and 2016 as well?

Thanks for any help.

Hi James,

The shortcut for setting margins is alt - p, m

There are boxes there to choose some standards and there is a custom for other values.  For example, there is one (I think it is normal) that sets one-inch margins on all four sides of the page.
Another is called narrow, where the margins are all point 5 inch.

The default is top and bottom of one inch and sides of 1.25 inch.

There are a couple more, but you get the idea and they are all in a list.
