Do you have the view set to one page and not two pages?

Richard,

I am using print tab, and my pages in the view tab were set to one page.

So unfortunately, the mystery continues.

Thanks.

I just noticed that too.

With my wife’s help, I discovered two things.

One, make sure on the view tab you are on print view.

Also on the view tab, tab a bunch and make sure it doesn’t say Multipage after the zoom info.  If it does, arrow down to one page and hit enter.

I have had to do that with a couple of documents in the last few days.

Quite annoying.

Hi,

Not sure if I’ve sent something to this list about this.

Something has changed.
I used to be able to arrow through a document and  read it from beginning to end.

Now I hear at the end of page 1 dialogue I’ve written, and it goes to page 3 and skips page 2 etc.

I think I’ve fixed this issue before but don’t think I kept that piece of information.

I do not hear this in Narrator at all.  I do hear it with all versions of JAWS on my PC.

Thoughts?

Just as with Dropbox, once you signed into OneDrive with your Microsoft account allyou have do do is make sure all the files you want to sync are inside the OneDrive folder.

You do have to check OneDrive settings as by default it may keep content more in the cloud, but you can choose for everything to download so that a local copy is on your device.

I would like to start using Microsoft OneDrive so I can have the same files on my desktop computer and ElBraille computer.  Does anyone know where I can find tips on using OneDrive, or a tutorial?

 

I would like my files to be kept locally on each computer and constantly synchronized with OneDrive.  That way I could work on a file even if the internet is not available and it would synchronize and update when the internet became available.

 

Thank you for your help.

Hello everyone:

 

I have just installed Windows 10 on a friend's laptop.

 

For some reason, only understandable to Microsoft, Windows 10 keeps issuing sounds, which indicate something but, no window appears on the screen for JAWS to speak its content thus, leaving me very exasperated as to how to find out what the tone indicators mean.

 

Any ideas?

Please press CTRL windows and k for setting the placemarker. Then, just hit the letter k to jump back into the position of that marker. This sets a temporary mark, of course, but another way is to press CTRL shift and k to get into the placemarker dialog. Then, you just name your marker and press the okay button. This is also the same keystroke, CTRL shift and k if you want to delete a more permanent marker like the one I just showed you. The temporary mark, placed with windows CTRL and k moves as you move it down the document/no need to delete the previous mark.

I use Password Safe for my Windows installations and PW Safe for my Mac and iPhone.  There is also a version for Android.  It is open source software and regardless of the platform they share one database.  I keep my database on my iCloud Drive and then run iCloud for Windows so I have access to the file on all of my devices.  The Windows version is free, but the Mac/iPhone had a nominal charge.  I purchased the software about 8 years ago so I don’t remember the exact cost, but I think it was $15.  It is very accessible on Windows (with JAWS and Narrator), iPhone and Mac with Voice Over.  I have reached out to the developer on several occasions and he has been extremely responsive and takes accessibility very seriously.

Was it the person who suggest you turn off Outlook in the Settings Center or, was it the person who suggested you change the setting in Outlook.
 
Whichever of these suggestion solved your problem, it would be very useful to other list members to know because, it may also help to solve their problem as well.

Hi,

Try this.

Press Windows key and then I.

You should hear Settings.

Tab once to System.

Press enter.

Tab once and then arrow down to Notifications and Actions.

Press enter.  You will see many apps with buttons you can press the space bar to toggle.

One of these should be outlook.  My guess is that by default, it is on.

When you hear Outlook button on, press the space bar to toggle it off.

Then alt f 4 to exit from settings.

This should fix your problem.

Yesterday my technician, while working on my computer, accidentally did something which has caused JAWS to read aloud an e-mail message every time it comes in, regardless of whether I am in Microsoft Outlook or not.  I may be writing a letter or addressing an envelope, and all of a sudden JAWS starts reading an e-mail message to me aloud and interrupting whatever I am doing.  Is there a way I can stop JAWS from doing this?  Microsoft Outlook is my e-mail carrier.  I am using Windows 10 and the latest update of JAWS 2020.

 

Thank you all for any help or advice you can give.

Rick:
 
Did the person working on your computer, make changes in the settings within Outlook?
 
If so, then your problem is not with JAWS but Outlook.
 
 JAWS only reads what is placed on the screen. So, for example, if you are using a program, and a window opens from Outlook, displaying a new message, JAWS will read the text within the newly presented window.
 
Also, Outlook is not your email carrier, it is your email client.

I have been using lastpass for a while now, and although it definitely
has some accessibility problems, I have managed to work around those.
I was using keypass, but I could only use it on windows, the IOS and
MAC stuff is either broken or not available, so I switched to lastpass
instead so I could use it on all my devices.
