Hello

I have "whatsapp web" on my windows PC installed.

Although this is a official windows program Most of the tasks seem not accessable with Jaws and some of the buttons are not labelled.

Are there any shortcut keys?

I was able to compose a message but So far I was not able to access the send button.

Reaching received messages is also a real challenge - at least for me.


Any help is appreciated.

In the audio settings of zoom, you can have the volume set to automatic. As Marty stated, the volume of the pc or laptop is totally different then the settings in zoom.

It was suggested that my microphone on zoom was too loud so the recording has trouble transcribing it?

How do I turn it down.

 

I went into the volume settings on the pc but only saw the master volume.

 

I didn't see a way to turn down the microphone.

 

Thanks.

To adjust your microphone in Zoom, open Zoom and go to Settings, tab once and arrow down to audio and tab over to adjust your microphone input.

 

If your headset has an adjustment control for the headset you might want to do it there.

moderated Re: thunder bird question.

 

This was written ages ago, but still applies.  I'll quote the line that is pretty much exactly what Randy Barnett has already said, but the full tutorial that includes it follows:

To get to attachments on an incoming message hit ALT+M, H  [Opens the Message Menu and selects the Attachments option]

-------------------------

Thunderbird e-mail client

IMPORTANT:  For those using Thunderbird with a screen reader I strongly suggest installing the Quick Folder Key Navigation extension.  You will only need to install this extension once for any instance of Thunderbird you might be using.  This allows you to jump from folder in the folder tree using first letter navigation to move between them.  Without it, this does not always work.   You will only need to install this extension once for any instance of Thunderbird you might be using.  If you are using JAWS or NVDA, searching for this add on within Thunderbird is quite simple:

·         Activate the Tools Menu (ALT+T), add-ons option (followed by A) and tab 3 times, at which point you should be on the Extensions Pane.  If you happen to land on any other pane then use Down Arrow (or Up Arrow) until you hear Extensions.

·         Tab 2 times, which lands you in the search all add-ons edit box. 

·         Then type in Quick Folder Key Navigation, hit enter, and wait a few seconds for the search to complete. 

·         Tab 5 times more gain focus on the list of results.  Then hit Down Arrow to start navigating the list.  Quick Folder Key Navigation should be the first result.

·         Tab 2 times to land on the Install button then hit enter.

·         After the install completes you need to exit Thunderbird and start it up again for this extension to become active

 

Upon opening Thunderbird, you will be in the folder tree sitting on whatever folder you had open the last time you closed it.  You will still have to hit TAB until you reach the folder tree view.

When in the folder tree view you can use first letter navigation to move around (if you installed the extension noted above).

When you are sitting on a folder in the folder tree view hitting TAB will take you to the message list.  You know you’ve arrived when you hear, “List View.”  Use up and/or down arrow to navigate through the list of messages.  [Depending on the screen reader you usually have to hit TAB either once or twice.]

If you are using threaded view, and hear JAWS announce “Level zero, collapsed,” use the right arrow to expand the thread to show all its individual messages.  To collapse the thread, get back to the first message at level zero and hit the left arrow.

When you land on the message you want to read, hit Enter to open it in a dedicated reading tab.

You will use the usual reading commands to read through the message that you use in any other program.

Thunderbird Shortcuts

Hit CTRL+W to close a reading tab and go back to the message list for the folder you had been viewing.

Hit SHIFT+TAB (once or twice) or F6 to move back to the folder tree from the message list for any folder.  This must be done after you delete all messages in a given folder as well.

To select messages in the message list view:

            Once you are in the message list view, and have a specific single message selected:

1.      Holding SHIFT, while at the same time hitting either Up or Down Arrow will continue selecting messages in the direction you are moving.

2.      Holding SHIFT, then hitting PgUp or PgDown will select all messages above or below the currently selected message, respectively, stopping with the first/last one currently displayed in the message list view.

You can use CTRL+A to select all messages, including ones currently not visible in the message list view.  Unless you’re certain about doing whatever you intend to do with ALL messages, use this option with great caution.

To delete messages:

1.      If you are in the message list view, select the message or messages you wish to delete then hit the Delete key.  This will move them to the Trash folder and none will be opened for reading if you use this technique.

2.      If you are reading a message and want to delete it, hit the Delete key and it will delete that message and automatically open the next message in the folder for reading.

To reply to a message you’re reading:  CTRL+R opens the Write window with the subject filled in with “Re:” prefixing it and the text of the message you’re replying to quoted.  Your cursor will be sitting right after the quoted material waiting for you to type.  If  you’re trying to do a Reply All that’s CTRL+Shift+R

To create a new message, regardless of what you’re doing in Thunderbird, hit CTRL+N.  This opens the Write window waiting for you to fill in your addressees in the “To:” edit box.  As you hit Enter after filling in an address or choosing one from the dropdown list of previous addresses another edit box of the same type opens.  If you need to change from “To:” to “CC:” or “BCC:” then hit SHIFT+TAB, use the up/down arrow key to find what you want, then hit TAB again to go to the edit box for the address.

·         To add attachments to an outgoing message, hit CTRL+SHIFT+A to bring up the Attach Files dialog.  It is very similar to a Save dialog except it works “in reverse.”  You will need to navigate to the location of the file you want to attach, select it, then either tab to the Open button or hit ALT+O to attach the file to the message.

To send a message, whether it’s a reply or a new message, hit CTRL+ENTER when you’ve finished composing.  It will send immediately and close the Write window, taking you back to wherever you had been before hitting the reply or new keyboard shortcut.

To get to attachments on an incoming message hit ALT+M, H  [Opens the Message Menu and selects the Attachments option]

 

Creating Folders in Thunderbird

            You can create folders within Thunderbird to organize your e-mail.  The concept is the same as in Windows File Explorer, and the tree view will be the starting point.

1.      In the tree view navigate to the folder or account (if you want the folder directly under the account like Inbox, Sent, etc., typically are) under which you want your new folder nested.  In most cases this will be your e-mail account itself, unless you are creating subfolders within other existing folders.

2.      Hit ALT+F,N,F – File Menu, New Option, Folder Option – after which the New Folder dialog opens and you’ll be in the edit box in which you’ll type the new folder’s name.

3.      Tab to the Create Folder button then hit enter, or hit ALT+R.  Your new folder has been created.

 

Moving Messages Between Folders on Thunderbird

1.      Select the message or messages you wish to move.

2.      Bring up the context menu with the applications/menu key or Shift+F10, then hit M [Move]

3.      You will be presented with a submenu that will vary somewhat depending on your folder structure, you have to drill down through the submenu to locate the folder where you want the selected messages to be moved.

4.      Once you have focus on that folder, hit Enter and the message(s) will be moved there.

Hi Cynthia,

 

If you have the virtual ribbons turned on, this won’t work, because JAWS screws around with the Office keyboard shortcuts.  I advise turning them off. I hate them personally, but some love them.

 

All the best

Hi,

 

Sorry it took me so long to post back. It didn’t work, when I press n, it doesn’t take me anywhere. The best I seem to be able to do is to go into the revisions pane and then arrow down until I get to the comment I want to edit or reply to. This is fine when there aren’t many comments. However, it is really time consuming when I am reading and giving feedback to graduate thesis submissions.

 

Thanks, though, for the suggestion.

Cynthia,

 

I’m going to copy below my notes about a post from another lister, Leo, who describes his solution to this problem. I haven’t so far tried it myself. Note that although he refers to Word 2019, where he says the problem doesn’t exist, his solution appears to apply to earlier versions. If it works for you, I hope you’ll post back. Here goes:

 

I had problems working with office 2016. I'm now working with word 2019 and jaws 2020 and I'm able to reply to any comment. Besides, Whenever jaws comes across a footnote, it verbalizes it correctly. Footnote one, etc.

As for replying to the comments, you can try this:

First, go to the comment, whether listing the comments, (control plus shift plus semi column), or listing the virtual items, (windows key plus column).

However you do it, arrow down to find the comment you want to reply to, and hit enter.

press separately, alt , then r, then n.

Jaws now should announce that you're in the comment pain. Now bring up the context menu, and hopefully, you'll find the comments related options to reply, etc.

Hi All,

 

I am running the most current version of JAWS 2021, and I think my version of word is current and up to date. I use comments in word a lot so I can provide feedback to students and respond to comments provided by my faculty colleagues. I can access the comments in a list by pressing the windows key + ;. I can also read them in the revisions pane and by pulling up a list using alt shift ;. However, if I come to a comment in the document while reading, I can’t read what is in the comment, and I can’t reply or edit. I have searched for solutions and followed all the steps from MS word help, but I can’t sort out what is going on.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Many thanks,

Hi guys just wondering what people rather have thunder bird show attatchments as in line or attatchments.

I am finding some times they are tricky to read.

With good old windows live mail you could just open the attatchment and read it easy.

But with TB i open it then its in a HTML then i open it and find what is in it.

Subject: JAWS and reading/responding to comments in Word

 

Hi All,

 

I am running the most current version of JAWS 2021, and I think my version of word is current and up to date. I use comments in word a lot so I can provide feedback to students and respond to comments provided by my faculty colleagues. I can access the comments in a list by pressing the windows key + ;. I can also read them in the revisions pane and by pulling up a list using alt shift ;. However, if I come to a comment in the document while reading, I can’t read what is in the comment, and I can’t reply or edit. I have searched for solutions and followed all the steps from MS word help, but I can’t sort out what is going on.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Many thanks,

 

Cynthia

Thanks, Bill and Richard. Time will tell for sure, but I think that did the trick.

Hi, Stan.

 

1. Open Outlook.

2. Press ALT, followed by F, then T for Options.

3. Arrow down to Mail, but do not press ENTER.

4. TAB to Display a Desktop Alert, and make sure this box is not checked.

5. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

This should suppress desktop alerts, which is what you may be experiencing as notifications.

michaeel's mail
 

Hi guys just wondering what people rather have thunder bird show attatchments as in line or attatchments.

I am finding some times they are tricky to read.

With good old windows live mail you could just open the attatchment and read it easy.

But with TB i open it then its in a HTML then i open it and find what is in it.

Cheers Michael.

Here is the reply I had sent when you first posted your question:


I did that when I was working.
There are two ways to approach this in my opinion.
You can set a repeating appointment titled Intake to repeat weekly on Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
Then, when you have a name, edit that dates appointment, and apply it to only that date and not the series.
Or, Schedule the repeating appointment the same way, but have it set as Free rather than Busy, then add a separate appointment for the person on that date and time, so you'll have two appointments at the same time, one as Intake, and one with the person's name.
Either way, it is a bit of a pain.

Hello,


on my work laptop, I am using Jaws 2020, with Office 365.

I have to schedule intakes on my calendar, so here is my question.

I do intake interviews as part of my work, and they are recurring appointments but with new applicants every week but at the same time.

If I set up the appointments in the Office 365 calendar, I can't seem to view the individual names, for the respective days.

In other words, my calendar might look like this.


Intake  9 AM

Intake 10 AM.

Intake  11 AM

Intake 12 PM

But, I need these appointments to occur every week. If I set up the recurring appointment, I cannot figure out how to see the different names, from week to week, during that scheduled time slot.


Thanks.


Claudia
