Re: List all Virtual Elements

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

In 16, Buttons and anchors are available through JAWS-F3. This versatile little combo handles several things, so just hit the first letter until you see what you want.

I only know of Jaws Key+F3 which lists all virtual elements, but it doesn't actually list each individual link, button, form field etc, instead it gives you a list like this:

Anchors list
Block quotes list
Buttons list
Checkboxes list
It goes on, with my Jaws 17 Copy it tells me when I bring it up and it announces the first one, Anchors List, that it is 1 of 19.
Then of course there are the keystrokes to bring some of these up individually, e.g. Jaws Key+F5 for form fields, Jaws Key+F6 for the headings list, Jaws Key+F7 for the links list etc.
I actually don't know of a keystroke to bring up let's say the buttons list or anchors list, but that doesn't mean there isn't one and it's easy to get to that via the virtual HTML elements list.

Keep in mind that if you forget you can always go to a website, turn on keyboard help with Jaws Key+F1 and then press keys and function keys to hear what they are.


Regards,
Sieghard

I know there is a key that will list all of the virtual elements on a page or in a document, but I can't find it in the list of keystrokes.
I believe it used a ; but am not sure.


How to Make a Header With a Page Number Beginning with #2 in the Upper Right-Hand Corner

Margaret Johnson
 

Hello Everyone,

 

I need to know how to make a header on a more than one page document, and I would like the pages to begin with the #2 on the second page in the upper right-hand corner.

 

Does anyone have the JAWS 17, Windows 7, and WS Word keystrokes to do this?

Re: Insert+h for help

HI Pam,

I don't know if there is a hot key but below is how you do it.

First find the person you want to share with and press enter on their name as if you were starting a conversation.
Then, you just tab until you hear SHARE and press ENTER, THIS WIL OPEN A MENU.
FROM HERE arrow down until you FIND desktop AND PRESS ENTER and you are sharing.

That should do it.

Hi,

Do you know if there is a hot key to share your screen without giving control to the other person?

I would be interested in a list of hot keys. I am using LYNC 2013, so I don't know if they would be the same as 2010.

Is there a way in JAWS to create a file with all the MS lync application specific hot keys to show up by doing a insert+h?

When I do a insert+h, it only list general windows hot keys and not MS lync specific hot keys.

I have no problem createing this file but just not sure how to do it if it can be done at all?

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: PowerPoint 2013 vs. PowerPoint 2010 with JAWS and Without

Mcginnis, Barbara
 

I have a description of the different backgrounds if that would help.  I think I also have a description of the transitions.  I have had students complete many slide presentations in 2013 and the slides always have text boxes unless I use blank slide.  The default slide on my PowerPoint 2013 is Title Slide.  No modifications have been made to PowerPoint as we teach straight out of the box.

Subject: PowerPoint 2013 vs. PowerPoint 2010 with JAWS and Without

 

Hello All,

         There seem to be a lot of heavy-duty MS-Office users here and I seem to recall conversations about PowerPoint.  One of my current clients wants to be taught PowerPoint and I can see that this is going to be a challenge from a number of perspectives.  I am out of practice with PowerPoint, but I do have PowerPoint 2010 and am practicing with it.  What is abundantly clear after today's session, unless it's an accident of the template we chose, that the way PowerPoint up through 2010 worked and PowerPoint 2013 works have some significant differences in how "default slides" are presented.

         This particular client has residual vision that varies, and when things are good he can see white text on a black background pretty well if it's sufficiently large.  Thus, for today's intro lesson, we created a presentation from a template called "Vapor Trail" in 2013.  The slides are solid black background with some colored effects across the top of each slide.  By the way, if anyone has Office 2013 and could send me an empty presentation using the Vapor Trail template I'd appreciate it.  I'm having difficulty finding it anywhere among the templates in the 2010 selections.

          One major difference I found in how 2010 is working and 2013 is working (on his computer, anyway) is that new blank slides are just that, blank, when they used to be pre-formatted with a title box and a text box pre-set to contain a bullet list.  In addition, in 2010 the text boxes never automatically stretched wider than the slide itself.  If you typed something that would "run off the slide" PowerPoint simply moved it to the line below with the necessary indent.

          Some days this client prefers to work with ZoomText and many others it must be JAWS, so there are more complications.  I am really wondering if the introduction of JAWS in the mix might cause some settings for PowerPoint 2013 to be set up via behind the scenes scripting that might eliminate the "expanding text box" problem, for instance.

           Anything that folks who've been there, done that with PowerPoint, particularly if you've transitioned from an earlier version to PowerPoint 2013 (and, probably 2016) I'd love to hear any insights you'd care to offer.

Hello; you can do a search in all folders by doing the following;

1, alt+f=file,
2, t=options,
3, s=search, do not enter,
Use the tab key and look for, something like,
Current folder, Current mailbox when searching from the inbox
Now use the down arrow key to choose/select,
All mail boxes,
Now tab ok, press enter.

Hope this helps.

Tom:

Both steps I've used for a while, but for some reason it wasn't working
lately. Here's why your steps didn't work, until now.

The first thing it tells me after pressing CTRL shift f is to type the key
term to search for. After that I selected subject and launched the search
and I found the email I was looking for. I think that was where I was going
wrong.

I typed what I wanted to look for but lol didn't select one of the options
such as subject, from etc.



The only thing I didn't like about it, unless I haven't figured it out is I
must be in the folder to look for that email.



The method I also use that Jason posted, it gives me the option to search
for all outlook items and not be limited to one folder.

Here's another set of steps for you to try. They work with Outlook 2016,
which is what I currently use.



Bring up Search via shift-control-f at the message list.



Then, select which field you want to edit (subject, to, from, etc.)



Then type in your key search words.



Then, press enter



Wait until JAWS says "Find now button"



Then, press F6



You now should be in a list of messages that you can navigate with the up

You can open any program JAWS supports like word and press insert plus 0. The script file for that program will open with the code within will show.

Re: Jaws 17 in Windows 7 right CTRL key sticking

 

Hi Russell,

 

I am also in Canada and only use the US keyboard layout for English. In my case I do have the German layout installed as I am bilingual which is why what you described sounded familiar.

The keyboard shortcut to switch keyboards (if  you have more than one installed) is actually not Control+Shift but it is Alt+Shift and more specifically Left Alt+Shift.

I am running Windows 10 on this laptop, but I still have Windows 7 on all my desktops at my store and I am pretty sure there is no difference. Here on my laptop pressing the right Alt key and then the shift key will switch from the English layout to the german layout, but it won’t switch back, only the Left Alt key + the shift key will toggle back and forth between the layouts.

Sieghard

Hi Sieghard and all who responded to my question. Sieghard, I think you were right. I accidentally pressed the CTRL + shift key combination yesterday, and heard Jaws say something about switching to Canadian layout or language, can’t recall the exact message. I pressed the key combination again to switch back to US, but Jaws remained silent. This morning when I re-booted my computer, everything worked well and no sticky right CTRL key. I made a conscious effort not to press CTRL + shift throughout the day, and I didn’t encounter the issue at all. I am going to purposely press CTRL + shift tomorrow to verify that that is, indeed the problem. If it is, can I safely remove the Canadian keyboard layout so I don’t accidentally trigger this again. I do live in Canada, but use the US English layout.
