Carolyn,
If yours is like mine (Excel 2016, Win 10) it actually is working, but Jaws does not announce it. I can type in a couple of letters and tab to the next cell & the previous cell will have auto-completed (if possible). Annoying it does not announce it, but it does work. I have the same problem with auto-complete in the IE address line. Same thing there, it is doing the auto complete, but not announcing. Just have to have faith!!

Hi Ed,



This is AutoComplete, and you can turn it on and off in Excel Options. In Excel 2016, press Alt, F, T, DownArrow to Advanced, then Tab or press Alt + A until you're on "enable AutoComplete for cell values".

Hi Ed,



I don’t have a precise idea about this either, but I worked on an excel sheet on Friday with Excel 2010 and JAWS 17 and it was filling the cells. So I looked at my setting, and I have a possibility. Under Home in Cell Formatting there is a submenu called fill. I am not sure if that is it, but the option on my menu that said “down” was grayed out. And indeed my spreadsheet was auto filling the cells down as I typed.



Hope this is correct and helps!

There is (or used to be) a setting in JAWS, in Excel, or in both such that if one begins typing an entry that matches the first few letters in the cell above, Excel will finish the entry automatically with the contents of the cell above.

It is like Auto-Fill in outlook when one starts typing the email address of someone in one’s contacts (or someone to whom previous messages have been sent). I tried the Excel setting center, but couldn’t find anything that started with “Auto” that looked relevant.

I hope someone more experienced with Excel than I am (and that won’t take much) can point me in the right direction.

Of course, this could just be functionality lost from JAWS 16 into JAWS 17 or from Office 2013 from Office 2010. It seems that both have gone backwards. I’m using Windows 10 and, as I said, Office 2013 and JAWS 17.

one or two options that can apply across docs, but I'm not

OK

Thanks!

I did this, and it is doing the auto-filling, though I have to take it on faith because JAWS doesn’t read it.

For instance, if I type “General” in cell C3, all I have to type is “Gen” and tab in the column below (D3, I think). After hitting tab, if I arrow back, “General” is filled in.

JAWS 16 used to read that. Now it does not.

So, thanks! I now have Excel working correctly. Too bad about JAWS 17. I know JAWS 16 used to read the auto-fill.

Well, check the options part of Excel to locate the auto complete checkbox.
I would expect that to exist even in a Windows 10 environment. It's an Excel
feature, not a JAWS feature, as Anne Burns pointed out.

Re: Excel Reading

It's auto complete, I think. Autofill is for creating a series.
In Excel 2007, it's under file, then options, then advanced. I don't know about later Excels, but it should be in the options somewhere. it is an Excel feature, not a JAWS feature.

Because Skype is composed of two separate parts, one is the user interface that you use when actively Skyping, the other part is a background process that constantly watches for the next incoming call or message, or you firing up the user interface to make a call or send a message.

Closing the user interface does that, and only that, and the Skype background process continues to run.

This architecture is not unique to Skype, either, though it's done for different reasons for different programs.  The Google Chrome browser is running in the background even when you've closed the browsing window entirely and have no active interaction with it.  Firefox does this as well.  The Google Hangouts app, which is not unlike Skype in intent, does this, too.

If you want to shut down the background process the only method of doing so is via the icon in the system tray if one exists (and it does for Skype).  Otherwise you have to go in to the Task manager and actually hunt down processes to kill, and I don't suggest that anyone do this unless they happen to know exactly what they're doing.

Hi Richard,

 

You can change a setting in Skype so that it at least disappears off your taskbar, this means it is still open and since Skype is meant to run in the background so you can receive messages and calls, it is designed not to close with Alt+F4.

If you want to set it up so Alt+F4 puts it in the background where you won’t come across it with Alt+Tab, open Skype, go to Tools (Alt+T) and arrow up to “Options”. You can also arrow down, but since options is the last item on this menu arrowing up gets you there a lot quicker. In options go to the “Advanced” tab, then tab I think 3 times and you hear “Keep Skype in the taskbar while I’m signed in”. This will be checked. If you press the spacebar to uncheck it, then tab to “Save” and activate it, Skype will disappear from your taskbar.

You will still have a Skype icon in the system tray although you may have to turn it on for it to be always visible when you go there with Jaws Key+F11. Here you can actually completely unload Skype, just bring up the systray, go to the Skype icon and press enter on it, then arrow up once which puts focus on “Quit” and press enter, you can also just press enter on the Skype icon and then press the letter “q” for quit and Skype will be completely closed/unloaded.

Lastly, I think if you have Doug Lee’s scripts pressing Alt+F4 twice quickly will close it completely.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Richard, I have the same issue. To be able to close skype, you need to make
its icon appear in the system tray. Then, you can go to the systray with
JAWS-f11, click on the skype icon and go to file, arrow up to quit.

So, you need to find the taskbar so you can hit customize it. I simply hit
control-escape and searched for "taskbar." The first entry was "taskbar and
start menu." Choose that and control-tab among start menu, toolbar, and
taskbar. When you're on taskbar, tab several times to customize and hit
enter. Here, you will find three items that you can arrow up and down among
to set whether you always want to show icons and notifications, turn system
icons on or off, or restore defaults. Then, tab several times past "help"
and you're coming to a list of all your icons. For each icon, there are 3
options that you arrow up and down to see: show icons and notifications;
hide icons and notifications; only show notifications. Tab to the next icon
and set its parameter. I had Skype set to show icons and notifications.
Then, it will be available to close from the system tray.

Hope it helps

Re: Excel Reading

Marquette, Ed <ed.marquette@...>
 

 

OK

Thanks!

I did this, and it is doing the auto-filling, though I have to take it on faith because JAWS doesn’t read it.

For instance, if I type “General” in cell C3, all I have to type is “Gen” and tab in the column below (D3, I think).  After hitting tab, if I arrow back, “General” is filled in.

JAWS 16 used to read that.  Now it does not.

So, thanks!  I now have Excel working correctly.  Too bad about JAWS 17.  I know JAWS 16 used to read the auto-fill.
