It works but I haven’t done it in a long time so I don’t remember all of the commands.

Good luck.

Subject: How well does Jaws work with editing/comments

 

Hello, I’m using the most recent version of Jaws2020 and MS word2016. I will be working with an editor in which they will use the editing and being able to leave comments. I’m not sure if I’m using the correct words when talking about grammar and other errors. Who does Jaws interact with the messages left in a document by an editor? I know in the past Jaws didn’t recognize the comments to well. This was years ago. Any thoughts will be a big help. Cheers, Kevin

I open the document, press f6 and tab to enable editing and press enter. You
will need to save the document after you do this or the next time you open
the document it will open in protected view again.

Hello,

I consulted Microsoft Accessibility and my problem was not solved. I am
using the most current versions of Office 365 and Windows 10 Home.

I used to be able to remove Protected View from a given document using the
context menu in Windows Explorer and going into the file properties.
Alternatively, I could open the file and go under File then Info. I am not
finding this option in either place.

I do not want to remove Protected View for all documents I receive.

If you have the file in word, alt f then the letter I then the letter e
might do the trick.

Also, using control s for save as will give you the ability to save it as a
new file.
You will have to tabe over when you press control s and select disabled

If the file is downloaded from the internet, go into contex menu, select

likely the file has been set to protected by the author.

Two things to try.
Sometimes hitting f6 a time or two will let you enable editing.
Or, try, alt-f then i then p, and arrow down.
It could be Alt-f i o p.

Glenn / Lenny
 


I use Linux a lot, and the times I have used Windows 10, I have been disappointed at the changes, such as in the start menu, and turning off courtana and then there are the ribbons.
Linux still uses the pull down menus like in good old windows, and as far as the desktop, the only three differences that stand out are 1, getting to the desktop, that is done with alt control D instead of windows M or D.
And 2, the start menu in Linux is alt F1 instead of using just the start menu in old windows, win 10 seems to have mucked this up in some configurations, and 3, the run program windows is alt F2, instead of the windows R in windows.
I think MS has made a lot more drastic changes than all that with windows 10.
Of course the command-line in Linux that is comparable to the command window in Windows operates pretty much the same, but the command names are different, but following the same concept as the command line in Windows, but I think few people any more do much at the command-line anyway.
But in Linux, you still use alt F4, and still alt tab, control C to copy and its associated file commands for pasting and the like are the same as in windows and lots more.
When in programs, you still have the typical old pull down menus like file and view and tools or whatever that are activated with alt whatever.
I know that folks often think learning another operating system would be daunting, but the fact that there is a separate list for windows 10 users is evidence that there are enough differences between 7 and 10 that the 10 users are best served on another list.
And the screenreader in Linux can use the Eloquence voice for a cost of 5 dollars, so you feel much like you are using NVDA in Windows.
But hey, this is a windows list, so I will stop my soap box here, and thanks for the checkbox information for windows 10.

Not really.  Not by a long shot.  But . . .

The easiest way to get rid of the checkbox option globally on any Windows system is:

1. Open Control Panel, File Explorer Options (or Windows Explorer Options on earlier systems - the steps that follow are for Windows 10 and would have analogous ones in earlier versions of Windows).

2. Navigate to the View Tab, and then to the checkbox for Use check boxes to select items.  Uncheck it if it is checked.

3. Activate the OK button to exit.

You're done.

Jenni, here's the solution that might be what you're looking for:

Money Talks is a completely accessible bank account management software
package developed by American Printing House (APH). This software package
offers the user a simple and effective means of recording and maintaining
accurate information for a variety of accounts. The user can import and use
electronic banking information to reconcile accounts, remember the last
workspace used in the program, emboss or print the check register in a
variety of formats, and print many types of bank checks. Can be used with a
screen reader or with its own self-voicing feature.

Quickbooks can do what you want, although you do need scripts from
