Re: jaws and facebook questions

David Moore
 

Hi Louise,
There are webinars on freedomscientific’s website that are archived. These were live teachings done by Dan Clark on how to use Facebook. The web site is:
Just go to the training page, and you can download the webinars. There are over 30 of them there that were done on many topics, and people were able to ask questions with their mikes. You will hear all of this on the webinar that you download.
Personally, I use the Mobile site for Facebook. The URL is:
m.facebook.com
Do not type www.
The site is much simpler, because it is used on phones, but you can use it on a PC. There are normal links to do everything, and there are no advertizments, apps or none of the stuff that is on the regular site. The Facebook app on Windows 10, is not accessible yet.
Give all of this a try, and let us know what you learn from those webinars from Freedom Scientific. They also go over the key commands that you can use on the regular page, but I prefer the mobile site much better.
Take care, Louise,
David Moore

Hello, group:

I am using Jaws 17 and Windows 10 for facebook.  A.  Is there a tutorial available to learn to use facebook with Jaws?  B.  When I type a comment in the edit field to respond to a posting, what keystroke do I use to send the comment?  I don’t see a send comment button near the comment edit field.  Thanks.

My Jaws just said it was in demo mode and my 40 minutes are up.
So I had to restart my computer.
There are several reasons this should not have happened.
My question is how do I find out if it is a registered purchased version?
It came with my computer from a vender.

Thank you for your help!

Sue,

Yes, I update the Excel KBD and JSB files with each major revision, because
I use, and prefer the Ctrl+Alt+1, 2, 3, 4 and the shifted versions to read
the top 4 titles and leftmost 4 titles. I find these indispensible and
thoroughly dislike the more modern replacements. Call me stodgy.

Hi,

One of my favorites suggestions to clients is to change the keystroke that
is used to set row and column titles. Now if you are thinking that is a lot
of trouble, you'd be right if you don't require this often or if you only
ever use row 1 and column A as your headers. But you will appreciate a more
convenient set of keystrokes if you have to have say, row 5 and column D as
your headers for one spreadsheet and then row 10 and column F for another.
I usually show people how to do this in the Keyboard Manager.

Is there not a key board command to set up jaws to read the column and row
titles in excel? When I was using excel years ago I thought there was,
currently i can not find it out.
I am having trouble trying the insert, command, alt with the lette.

Re: reading column and row titles in excel

Sue
 

Hi,

I would have typed out all the instructions before but I didn't want to bore everyone if most people already knew how to do this. Here is one way:

Open Excel

Press INSERT + Numbers Row 8 to open the Keyboard Manager. It will announce that you are in the excel.jkm JAWS Keyboard Manager file. That just lets you know that changes will affect only Excel

Press TAB once the JAWS Commands for Excel.

Now you have the list of all the keyboard commands for Excel.

Type S until you hear: SayColumnTitle

Press ALT + A to pull down the Actions Menu

From the Actions Menu select the Add Keystroke... command (I think there is a keystroke for this but I'm writing from memory and I generally just use the menus)

Then you will have an Add Keystroke Dialog on the screen with the focus in the Assign To: edit box. Here you have to press the keystroke you want to assign to this command. For example, I often suggest using ALT + 1 for the Column Title so I'd press ALT + 1 right now. If you are faced with a Keystroke in Use message you will need to read it to determine if you are overwriting something that you don't want to overwrite.

If you press a keystroke that isn't already assigned, then it will just be in the Assign To: edit box. You can tab around to confirm that. The Assign Key to DESKTOP Keys only is checked by default here. I usually uncheck that too.

Once you've confirmed that it accepted the desired keystroke, TAB to the OK button and Press SPACEBAR.
One more prompt. You are asked if you are sure you want to modify excel.JKM. Press ENTER and you are done!

Back in the list of Excel Scripts you now need to find the one for SayRowTitle. Do the same thing as you did above for the Column Title above.

Once you are done, just press ALT + F4 to close the Keyboard Manager. The keystrokes you added are saved in the process of adding them so no additional saving is necessary.

One more interesting thing to try. The SetColTitleRange defaults to JAWSKey + Control + Alt + C and SetRowTitleRange defaults JAWSKey + Control + Alt + R are both commands that most of us don't have enough fingers to execute. Change those to something simpler to activate as well.

Now you see why I didn't type all this out at first. If anyone has questions that are specific to what they doing I don't mind answering off list as well.

Re: reading column and row titles in excel--p.s.

Ann Byrne
 

Since you are using Excel to create a bookmark for the row and column titles, if you perform save-as on the work book, the book marks will carry over to the new workbook. I do this with my biweekly time sheet, so I never have to reset the titles.

Re: reading column and row titles in excel

Ann Byrne
 

The other method is explained in the JAWS training materials, and it works beautifully.

If there is only one region in your work sheet and you want both row and column titles

1. Place the cursor at the intersection of the title column and title row.
2. Press alt+m, then m. JAWS will say, "Define name dot dot dot".
3. Press enter.
4. For both row and column titles, type 'title' and press enter.
5. For row titles only, place the cursor anywhere in the column with the row titles, type alt+m, m and type 'rowtitle'.
6. For column titles, place the cursor in the row with the column titles, type alt+m, m, and type 'columntitle'.

For a worksheet with more than one region, follow the instructions in the JAWS training materials.

Good luck.

Mark,

Sorry for the finger gymnastics. That's the process I use. There's another
way to assign this that I never use, but it is detailed on the
FreedomScientific web site, or perhaps even in the JAWS help files for
Excel.

Hyperlink in a document

Hi - I have a question about having hyperlinks in a document.

When there is a hyperlink in a document, only the display text of the
hyperlink is shown. However, I don't know what setting I made
wrongly, tht Jaws did speak the full URL link after speaking the
display text.

How can I turn that off?

THanks for your help in adance.
