Word 2013, windows 7: opened document not reading

Ann Byrne
 

Jaws 17.

When my student opens a document in the documents list, JAWS says "Document, message" and does not read the text. The text is on the screen but not accessible. Printview is on. sometimes it says something about preview, but I can't find a preview screen.

additionally when she opens a new document, it's not the usual document 1, but--for example--document 26, then 27, then 28.

How can we fix this????

Thanks,

Ann

Good afternoon list; marv here.  As specified, no error message is shown pertaining to this issue; if anyone has a solution; I would appreciate hearing it.  Earlier, I answered a persons question and got lectured for doing so; I think he needs to learn to read before lecturing someone.

Re: What does this Image Say?

 

Annabelle,

          My guess is as a spam prevention mechanism.  The address can't be read by spambots crawling cyberspace trying to collect anything that looks like a legitimate e-mail address they can find.  Since most that do this don't even touch images, that foils them.  Still, a bit of alternate text would have been nice.

Thank you! I was especially confused as to why the Email address was just an image.

Annabelle,

           Yes, there is an at sign where Donna has the capital G.  Since embedded e-mail addresses get stripped, at least on the web interface, I'm going to separate the parts:  info at html-form-guide dot com.   There are hyphens between html and form and guide.

Isn't there an "at" sign in that image? I think it's supposed to be an email address.

Back, Forward Hell and Outlook 2013

Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Listers:

Our firm recently migrated to Office 2013, perhaps the worst iteration of Microsoft Office since it was first introduced.  Microsoft went out of its way to make things awkward, needlessly counterintuitive, and just plain obtuse.

Anyway, in the Outlook 2013 Calendar, If one is unfortunate enough to tab past the last appointment of the day, one lands on something called “Back.”  If one tabs more, one can come to “Forward.”  Hitting ENTER on these useless prompts does nothing.  If I continue to tab, I come to the weather forecast for Washington, D.C.  Since I’m in Kansas City, I find that information less than helpful.

ESCAPE does nothing.  I need to exit the calendar entirely to exit Back/Forward Hell.

Has someone discovered a solution?

Re: reading google play ebooks

 

Jeff,

         The answer to this question is somewhat dependent on what device you want to read the book on and what OS it is running.  Under Windows 10 there is a free app in the App store.  Under any version of Windows in a web browser you should be able to go to books.google.com to find the book you want and read it.  I was just on the books.google.com site with NVDA and there appears to be an accessibility mode available when you're using a screen reader via a button that's invisible to the sighted world but that gets focus via the screen reader.

          If what you're trying to read is not something you'd like to keep private, can you share what it is you're trying to get at and the URL?

reading google play ebooks

jeffs email <jeffarmstrong1380@...>
 

Hello; Anyone know how I can read a free google play book I found on the internet? The IE brings up the reference and a search screen but no actual text. Are they just scanned in books that haven't been put through OCR? I use win-10 and I also have an Iphone will either one access those books and is there an accessible way to do this? Thanks.

Seems that is the only to do it.

I'm ashamed to say that nvda seems to read that screen although there is no easy way to get to a certain file. You have to tab a hundred million times to get to a specific file.

Will try the file explorer way though.

Thanx all!

Yeah, I experience the same thing you describe, I would suggest you change file associations by using explorer instead.

Find the file you want to change the association for, bring up the context menu and then go down to "Open with" then select "Choose another app".

In the dialog that comes up you can select a program that has already been used to open that file type and check the "Always use this app to open xxx"

Or you can select use another app and on that list you can select from the full list of applications or browse for an executable not on the list, and again there is a checkbox to always use the select app.

Routing

This is with Jaws 17.



Any suggestions?

Re: control+down arrow getting hung up

Good thought but not the case.  This happens on lots of different emails.  I use the down arrow by itself to move down the screen.

Could it be that the e-mail only has one paragraph?  If it is only one paragraph, it doesn’t matter whether you use control up or control down or control 5 you read the same paragraph.

Hi,

 

I have Windows 10, JFW 17, and Outlook 2013.  For the past couple weeks or so I’ve had this problem. 

 

When I press control plus down arrow to read the next paragraph Jaws repeats the paragraph I am on instead of moving to the next paragraph and reading it.  I can press the control-down arrow repeatedly and Jaws keeps repeating the same paragraph.

 

Thanks for any ideas to fix this.

           This may (or may not) be a work around, but have you tried getting to the file associations via Control Panel, Default Programs dialog?

Re: Need Further Advice On Dealing With Clickable Announcement When Reading On Line PDF Documents

 

Sieghard,

             I'm going to presume IE11 and suggest the following.  I would do this first on the machine that works just to see how it's set up then go to the one that currently isn't doing what you want.

  1. In IE11, Tools Menu (ALT+T), Manage Add-Ons item (followed by A, two times, then hit enter - this is the first time I've ever seen a letter used twice in one menu)
  2. In the Manage Add-Ons Dialog, it should open such that you're in the "Toolbars and Extensions" category.  Using NVDA I tabbed twice to get into the list of items.
  3. Somewhere in there you should have an entry for Adobe PDF Reader (or, possibly, some alternative if you've installed one. I will presume Adobe).  Navigate to it.
  4. There should be an Enable/Disable option attached to it, which is enabled if you want to have the document display in the browser and disabled if you want the Adobe Reader program to open after the PDF is downloaded to temporary storage.  Based on what's there, and what you want to happen, tweak accordingly.
