Did you try going to devices and printers, selecting the device, press the applications key, and arrowing down to uninstall?

Hi there,

 

Does anyone know how I can remove a Braille Device from JAWS?  I can add one, but I don’t see how to remove one.

Thanks.

Re: Random Function in Excel

Nicole Massey <nyyki@...>
 

I'd use randbetween instead of rand in this instance, and here's what I'd
do. Others may have different suggestions.
Put your names in column b, then do a randbetween formula in column a with a
huge number to minimize repetition, say a hundred million. The command is
=randbetween(0,100000000) and put it next to every name in the list. Then
sort the names smallest to largest, using the context sensitive menu or
whatever other sorting path you want to take.

Hi,



Using JAWS 17, Excel 2010 and Windows 10. I have an Excel spread sheet with
names in column A on rows 2 through 200. I want to use the random function
to create a formula to use in order to select a person's name to use for

I lied, I couldn’t resist re-starting and seeing if Youtube worked, ONE more time. Well, I neglected to factor in that I had had to change my Google password a week and a half ago—about when Youtube “malfunctioned”. Of course, I had already signed into email because I use it so darn much, but hadn’t made the connection that I might have to sign into Youtube, ‘til just now; when I did, success! The song I’ve been trying to Youtube for over a week? (ironically): “Everything’s All Right” from J.C. Superstar (Elliman version). On a lighter note—little wonder that, at one point, Corey Glover, of Living Color, whose work I always liked, portrayed Judas a few years ago—I see the rough-edged quality Weber and Rice were looking for, and he had to have been fabulous; did anyone attend when he was in that role, and if so, tell me all about the show! Thanks for bearing with me—so gratifying that this has borne fruit, at last. Not sure which variable affected the change, though guessing the sign-in thing (I played with so many issues, though, so who knows—just glad everything’s back in working order; my life is all straightened out now—at least for a while)!

Hi, Sandra. One of two things could have happened. Either the volume is turned down on your flash player, which was never completely uninstalled, or the "mute" button on YouTube is pressed, so you can't hear what's playing.

I must have made it happen, I see it listed now. I also did Shockwave. However, still no Youtube—what could have caused Youtube to become uncooperative starting about a week or a little more ago? There’s total silence now when I click on a desired video or whatever. Just the long list of stuff, but it doesn’t play! ‘sup with that! Since I have somewhere to be tomorrow AM, I’m closing up shop now, but feel free to respond; I’ll check email tomorrow night, when my long day is over. Thanks, everyone.

Hi, Sandra. Flashplayer22ax_OD_install is the program you are trying to install. What you will need to do is completely uninstall flash player by using Programs and Features in the Control Panel. It will be called Flash Player. Then restart your computer, and do a reinstall of flash player before you use your Internet Browser. I have had this problem several times, and have worked through it.
 
If you want to call me tonight, Sandra, I can walk you through the process.
 
My telephone number is:
714-835-6295.
 
I hope some of my instructions can help you, or I hope you can call me and I can help you over the telephone.

I have tried installation several times, and end up with a screen that asks me to close Flashplayer22ax_OD_install, then press “continue”, (with a couple unlabeled buttons). I have no idea where this program is, therefore can’t shut it down. Any suggestions? I haven’t aborted the installation yet, and will leave it open a few minutes longer, in case someone has suggestions. It gets about 50% downloaded, then displays that screen. Thanks.

Enhancements in JAWS 17.0.2417 (July 2016)

The following is a list of improvements made between the
JAWS 17 June 2016 release and the July 2016 update.

JAWS
list of 8 items
. We have been working with Microsoft to improve the
accessibility of the Mail app included in Windows 10. After
installing this update, read-only messages you open are now
read using the Virtual Cursor, similar to Outlook.
Additionally, just like in Word or Outlook, JAWS now
announces when you turn on or off the bold, italic, and
underline attributes in editable messages using the CTRL+B,
CTRL+I, and CTRL+U commands. While users should notice
improved performance with the currently released Mail app,
Microsoft has made a number of changes as well to improve
the experience which will be included in a Windows 10 update
that will be available in the coming weeks.
. Due to issues with obtaining results from 411.com, the
People Search Research It lookup source has been updated to
use the web site 10digits.us. To search, you now only need
to enter the person's first and last name. If you receive
too many results, you can narrow the search further by
typing the person's first and last name followed by a comma,
and then the city and state, or zip code. For example, John
Smith, Saint Petersburg FL, or John Smith, 33716.
. Addressed an issue where the INSERT+4 keystroke could not
be found using the JAWS Command Search feature. This command
opens a dialog box where you can select from a list of items
such as Euro, Yen, Pounds, Trademark, Copyright, bullet,
plus or minus, etc. and the symbol for that item will be
inserted at the cursor position in the currently open
document. If you know of any other keystrokes that are
missing from the JAWS Command Search, or are not easily
found, please provide us with the name of the keystroke and
the search terms you are using to locate it so we can update
the command descriptions with this information to make them
easier to find.
. When entering text in contracted braille using the APH
Refreshabraille display, addressed a reported issue where
contracted words beginning with dots
4-5-6 were not being correctly translated.
. This update contains new scripts from Corel to add JAWS
support for the X8 versions of WordPerfect, Quatro Pro, and
Presentations.
. Dictionary pronunciation rules have been added so that
JAWS now correctly speaks the name "Ai Squared".
. Resolved an issue with the Weather Research It lookup
source in the German version of JAWS not displaying the
temperature.
. In response to customer requests, you can now configure
braille input when the braille language is set to English -
United Kingdom.
list end

Microsoft Excel
list of 3 items
. Resolved an issue where JAWS was not reporting background
color changes in Excel after turning on "Font, color, and
attribute changes indication" in Quick Settings.
. Addressed issues with opening drop-down lists contained in
cells.
. Addressed an issue where structured braille stopped
working correctly if focus moved to a menu and then back to
the spreadsheet.
list end

Web Browsers
list of 3 items
. Addressed certain instances where combo boxes on a web
page were not being shown in the virtual buffer.
. In addition to announcing "has pop up" on aria menu
buttons, JAWS now also says "has pop up" for any element
that includes the aria-haspopup property.
. Resolved an issue where JAWS was not always announcing the
change in status for toggle buttons in Internet Explorer.
list end

Windows 10
list of 3 items
. Resolved an issue where JAWS support for the Windows 10
Calculator was not working as expected.
. Improved JAWS performance in the Windows 10 Open With
dialog box, which allows you to select the application to
use to open the current file.
. The JAWS settings for the Windows 10 Task Manager are now
loaded as expected.
list end
HTH
Take care.

Re: Using Microsoft Narrator to download and install JAWS

David Moore
 

Hi,
I wanted to let you know that in win10, to tturn on Narrator, just press windows+enter and Narrator will start. Just press alt+tab to the Narrator window and tab through different catagories of settings and adjust the voice rate, voice you hear, and many more settings. Narrator does perform many tasks like reading a document in notepad, You can navigate your entire computer, you can find files on a flash drive with it, and on and on. Now, in win 7 or below, Press windows+U to bring up ease of access, and press the letter N for Narrator, I think, I cannot remember this for sure, because I have used 8.1 and above for three years. In that Narrator window, there are over 70 keyboard commands to memorize. For example, to read the item you are on, press caps lock+D. You can use up and down arrows like always to go through a list and use first letter navigation.
Take care.

Hi,

 

You could also use NVDA installed on a USB memory stick. You’d have to know the drive letter of the USB drive in order to start NVDA, but you could press Windows R to bring up the run command, and then try different drive letters, i.e. E:\NVDA. If this doesn’t work, press escape, then Windows R followed by F:\NVDA, etc.

 

The nice thing about running NVDA from a thumb drive is, unlike Jaws, you don’t need to install video intercept or anything else.

 

You, of course, will need to have Jaws, or another screen reader  running in order to download and install the portable version of NVDA.

Do you think this will work? How can I activate Narrator? Any advice on practical use within Narrator will be much appreciated.

 

Is there any way to activate Narrator from the Login Screen? I doubt it, but thought I’d ask.

Subject: Latest Jaws Update?

 

Hello, everyone.

 

This morning, I received notification that a new Jaws update is available.

 

Does anyone have info as to what this update addresses?

 

Am trying to decide whether to download and install it here.

 

Am currently using Jaws 17.0.2211.

 

Thank you!

Tom,

That page starts out with the general jaws 17 stuff but then goes on
to list (from most to least recent) the items dealt with in each
release.

Unless I'm missing something, the link you sent was for Jaws 17 generally,
not for the specific enhancements in the latest Jaws update.

Is there somewhere else I should be looking for this info?

Thanks!

The changes can be found at
http://www.freedomscientific.com/Downloads/jaws/JAWSWhatsNew

One item that matters to me is that the windows 10 calculator once more
echos the display as you go, though there is still no shortcut for switching
between modes (basic, scientific, programmer etc) as in previous versions of
the program. But that's a windows issue, not jaws.
