After you turn on Accessability, how do you go about accessing Accessability Settings?

Be sure you have pressed alt-ctrl-z to turn on accessibility. In
accessibility settings, turn on Braille even if you don't have a
Braille display. At 10:22 PM 2/3/2021, you wrote:

Thanks, Ed, that's really helpful! For some reason I often don't think to check the JAWS help files, but they're usually pretty good.

I've still not figured out a way to work with the built-in Windows 10 Mail application that works consistently and well, I guess I'll try to stick to Outlook in the future.

Hi Jim,

As far as Outlook is concerned: Open Outlook, press JAWS key+f1 twice quickly to bring up the Outlook help topic and select "Outlook helpful hints."

This will run through what you need to set/change.

Cheers,

I always try to use JAWS with the full version of Outlook, and to configure it in a certain way (e.g. no preview pane). Is there an accepted optimal way to configure Outlook to work with JAWS? Or does anyone have any specific tips that make Outlook work well with JAWS?

Also, would anyone advise using the built-in Windows Mail client with JAWS? I have problems using tab and F6 to navigate through everything, but I'm wondering if I'm missing something.

do you have windows 10? if so press control windows plus enter to start narrator. if you can navigate windows and everything works correctly then it's a jaws issue. if narrator starts but if windows is not working correctly at least then you can use the narrator to help troubleshoot the problem if narrator doesn't work and nothing else happens you're going to need sided assistance or do a complete reinstall using narrator with windows 10.

To automatically resize column width in Google Sheets to fit text, follow these steps:

  1. Select the column(s) that you want to fit to the text inside them
  2. Right click at the top of a selected column, then click "Resize column…"
  3. Click "Fit to data, then click, "OK"
I'm sorry, but there is no excuse, none, for a screen reader user not to be able to translate "right click" in a sighted set of instructions to "bring up the context menu by the method of your choosing."

Click resize column.  Gain focus on resize column control and activate.

Click "fit to data."    Gain focus on the Fit to data menu option/radio button/checkbox/whatever control, and activate.

Click OK button.  Activate OK button.

Etc.

If you cannot do the direct translation from typical point and click to its exact keyboard equivalent then it's time to learn.  It was long ago time to learn.

There is nothing in those three steps that any screen reader user should not immediately understand and be able to do.  It's not rocket science.

Which, if you have to do it, is an annoyance to begin with, but if you are driving a car (or are a passenger) where a collection of MP3 music is on shuffle play for hours and hours it saves you from utter madness as well as the occasional shock if one album had a recording level significantly higher than another and those two songs play back to back.
