Okay, I've got it. The whole problem was pretty much a senior moment. :( Sorry to have asked such a obvious question. (chagrin)

Has anyone checked to see if it works with JAWS?

Re: How to shut off JAWS when sightlings want to use your computer?

Marianne Denning
 

If you have JAWS running on your task bar and you know its number you can press the menu or windows key and that number to launch it. To check this go to your task bar. The The first item would be menu key 1, the next menu key 2... For example, I would press menu key 6 because JAWS is in the sixth position on my task bar.

Hi Michael,

 

First, check whether the Jaws shortcut you should have on your desktop has a shortcut key or not. In order to do so, select it and press <alt+enter> to display its properties.

 

Then, tab twice. You should hear “Shortcut key (hotkey):” and something more. If this additional information is simply <none>, type a key on your keyboard, (the letter j for instance). Then, tab away from this item, and shift+tab back to it. You should now hear “Shortcut key (hotkey): ctrl+alt+j”. “j” could be replaced with the letter you typed.

 

If it’s ok, tab until the Ok button and press <enter>.

 

In order to check if it works, try pressing it. Jaws cannot be launched twice but it should inform you about such an attempt, for instance, by placing you into the Jaws window or opening the Jaws context menu, (depends on whether you choose to minimize jaws in the taskbar on in the notification area).

 

Now, if it works, you can confidently type <jawskey+f4> in order to shut jaws down. After your sighted friend gives you back your computer, simply type the hotkey you previously defined and jaws should restart soon.

 

HTH, Have a nice day. ChD

So every now and then one of my sighted friends comes over and wants to check something out on the internet. But she’s always complaining about my eloquence’s voice program running with JAWS.

So what’s the fastest and best way to shut JAWS down, and the fastest and best way to bring it back up, after she’s done?

 

I know way back when, on a different computer, I had someone put on some  short cut keys to disable JAWS, once disabled you could just hit those short cut keys again, and JAWS would come back up.

 

So how do I go about setting this up again on my current laptop?

Although, it’s kind of funny listening to a sightling freak out; when having to listen to eloquence going a thousand miles an hour while working on your computer!

JAWS reader question

Johnson, Janice (MMB) <Janice.Johnson@...>
 

I am using a JAWS reader to review documents posted on our agency website. When using the JAWS reader, it reads the word clickable frequently and sporadically throughout the document. Why is this happening and if should not be doing this, how do I change this?

 

I am looking for a resource to be able to troubleshoot when I run into issues like this one.

 

I hope you will be able to help.

 

Thank you,

Re: General issues with JAWS, is it just me?

jeffs email <jeffarmstrong1380@...>
 

I am using the latest version of Internet Explorer, v11 I believe. And, also, sometimes when I am tabbing through links, the JAWS gets stuck in a spot on the screen and it seems like the page only consists of this link unless I do those same moves like close and reopen JAWS or sometimes refresh the page. Since restarting JAWS fixes the problem most of the time that is what I do, sometimes JAWS restarts on its own and it fixes the problem as well. I keep thinking that there is something I could be setting differently or maybe I don't have something running in IE11 that should be there.BTW, it is not limited to just one web site. I first noticed this type of behavior when I would open a "pdf" file on the internet and somehow I figured out that tabbing away and back to the screen with the file on it would take it from a seemingly empty file to a readible one.

Re: Making Font and size all the same in a document.

Nathaniel Kile <heavens4real@...>
 

When in the diolog box for the font after you change the style and
font size, press Alt/D and you will be taken into a diolog box and you
can choose weather to use the font for the intire document or all MS
Word documents. If you click for the intire document then anything you
type in that document will be in the font style that you have chosen.
I hope this helps with your question,

cancer, but at least you won't be sneezing. <SMILE>
A somewhat lest drastic approach would be to go paragraph by paragraph --
leaving headings alone, and using control + shift + n to convert the
paragraph to normal style. Then, fix that paragraph the way you want it.
After that, press control + shift + c to copy that format/style.
Then paste that in for every other paragraph where you want that particular
style and look.
The best approach, however, is to press control + shift + s. Then pick out
a style that sounds good, right click on it (applications key), and modify
it as you want. Then, apply that style. One can apply that style to an
entire document, to a paragraph, or to any "selected" portion of a
document.

Since this has been a sticking point for me as well, I used your
instructions; but, I got some interesting, and somewhat unexpected results.

After following your instructions to get Ariel, regular, 12 point and colour
black, setting this as my "default", and saving the file, I pressed
JAWS/INS+F+F (the second "F" is to keep this message on screen), for font,
and got this message:

" Insertion point formatting
Mixed point size
black on white
Mixed font
Mixed style

Line spacing: Single

Paragraph formatting: first line indented by 138888.9 Inches left indent of
138888.9 Inches Mixed alignment

Outline level: body text

Press ESCAPE to close this message. "

You have to admit, this seems unusual, especially, the "Paragraph
formatting".
Anyway, I looked around, testing for font/etc. in several parts of the
document. When I next checked for font, on the top/first line, I got:

" Insertion point formatting
12 point
black on white
Arial
Normal style

Line spacing: Single

Paragraph formatting: Aligned left

Outline level: body text

Press ESCAPE to close this message. "

At this point, I said "ahah!. I've done it"! However, I then checked for
font on the second line in my document, and got 'almost' the same message,
with 1 interesting change. Instead of:

"black on white",

I got:

"black on yellow"

So, I then checked different parts of my document for font, seeing a variety
of messages. In one place, I got the message:

"Insertion point formatting
italicized
12 point
white on white
Times New Roman
Normal (Web) style

Line spacing: Single

Paragraph formatting: Aligned left

Outline level: body text

Press ESCAPE to close this message. "

I did not bother checking the entire document; however, I got several
different, and some quite unusual, messages when checking for font. The
differences were seen in most items, e.g. font, size/etc.

Clearly, I must be doing something wrong! Please advise. Thanks.

Date: Sun, 25 Sep 2016 23:33:32 PDT

Hi Marilyn,

I had a couple of minor errors in my first note, so here is the corrected
one, just delete the first one.

Here are the steps:

1. Press control and the letter a to select all text.

2. Press control and the letter d, which will bring up what you want, the
font menu.

3. In the first box, arrow up or down to select the font. This box has
first letter navigation, so if you want, for example, Times New Roman, press
t and you will be at the beginning of the list that starts with t.

4. Tab once to the font type, and use the arrow keys to select what you
want, probably "regular", which is the first choice when you pres the down
arrow.

5. Press tab again, and you are in the size box. Use the up and down arrow
keys to select the size.

6. Press enter, since the OK button is the default. You will be back in
your document, and all should be well.

Sincerely,

Tim Ford

12 point
black on white
Arial
Normal style

Line spacing: Single

Paragraph formatting: Aligned left

Outline level: body text

Press ESCAPE to close this message. "

At this point, I said "ahah!. I've done it"! However, I then checked for font on the second line in my document, and got 'almost' the same message, with 1 interesting change. Instead of:

"black on white",

I got:

"black on yellow"

So, I then checked different parts of my document for font, seeing a variety of messages. In one place, I got the message:

"Insertion point formatting
italicized
12 point
white on white
Times New Roman
Normal (Web) style

Line spacing: Single

Paragraph formatting: Aligned left

Outline level: body text

Press ESCAPE to close this message. "

I did not bother checking the entire document; however, I got several different, and some quite unusual, messages when checking for font. The differences were seen in most items, e.g. font, size/etc.

Clearly, I must be doing something wrong! Please advise. Thanks.

Hi Marilyn,

I had a couple of minor errors in my first note, so here is the corrected one, just delete the first one.

Here are the steps:

1. Press control and the letter a to select all text.

2. Press control and the letter d, which will bring up what you want, the font menu.

3. In the first box, arrow up or down to select the font. This box has first letter navigation, so if you want, for example, Times New Roman, press t and you will be at the beginning of the list that starts with t.

4. Tab once to the font type, and use the arrow keys to select what you want, probably "regular", which is the first choice when you pres the down arrow.

5. Press tab again, and you are in the size box. Use the up and down arrow keys to select the size.

6. Press enter, since the OK button is the default. You will be back in your document, and all should be well.

Sincerely,

Tim Ford
