Re: Some Office 2016 Configuration Questions

Les Kriegler <kriegler@...>
 

Tom, regarding navigating in Outlook 2016, the shortcut keys that were
available in prior versions of Outlook still work. For example, if you wish
to go to another folder, press Ctrl-Y and you will hear Go to Folder. You
can expand your personal folders with right arrow and then use first letter
navigation to locate the folder desired. Ctrl-Shift-V will allow you to
move a message to a desired folder. Ctrl-Shift-I will always return you to
the Inbox. I believe Ctrl-1 will do the same thing. Finally, Ctrl-2 will
bring up your calendar, and I think Ctrl-3 will bring up your contacts list.
I use these keystrokes all of the time, and find them lifesavers.

Subject: Some Office 2016 Configuration Questions

Hello, everyone.



As some of you may recall, I'm configuring a newly-acquired Windows 7 laptop
for Office 365, using Jaws 16.



Things are going relatively well, but I have a few questions:



1. How can I configure Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel so that I come up
either to a blank document or a blank spreadsheet workbook file when first
opening the programs? Currently, when I open either program, I land in some
sort of back-stage view which gives me a list of options, including the
option to view my most recently-accessed documents. I find this latter
feature distracting, and, although I can get out of it by simply hitting the
escape key, I would like to eliminate the back-stage view altogether.



2. How can I configure Outlook to be less verbose when accessing message
list views in my various Outlook folders? Currently, I'm given way too much
information in the list views for efficient list view navigation.



3. Regarding Outlook 2016, if anyone has some suggestions for optimizing
navigation with Jaws, I'd appreciate those suggestions as well.



Thank you!

Re: Outlook 2013 Hanging Jaws

Kimber Gardner
 

I've had nothing but grief with quick keys and the Internet since installing jaws 17. I exchanged emails with FS who told me, repeatedly, that all I need do was press jaws key plus Z. But every time? On every web page? So I consider myself officially blown off by FS with regard to my quick key problem. Fortunately, I have this issue only on my work laptop which I don't often use for Internet stuff. But yeah, quick keys are a real nightmare and FS isn't owning the problem, at least not in my case.

When we first loaded 17.0200, I had to hit Control Z every time I went

anything in a Word document without first hitting Control-Z. That seemed
like such an unnecessary problem to me, especially since I have a lot of
Word documents, and Word is as much, if not more of a priority to me then
the net.

Opening Word 2016 (part of the Microsoft Office productivity suite) will show you the startup animation. Then, you are presented with a bunch of templates to start with. This can be handy, if you are looking for a good foundation to start a document with.

But this behaviour can also be annoying. Personally, I mostly start a blank document. So in summary: if I open Word 2016, I almost always want a new blank document to open by default. Currently, this takes me an extra click.

 

To make Word open a new document by default instead of the Start Screen, you should change a toggle in the settings menu. Here are the steps:

 

1. Open Word 2016

2. Go to File > Options

3. In the General tab, uncheck Show the Start screen when this application starts The keystroke would be,

Alt+f=file,

T=options,

Yu will land on general,

Just tab to the setting,

Show the Start screen when this application starts And uncheck the box and then tab ok press enter.

 

The next time you open Microsoft Office Word on your computer, you will be presented with a new document instead of that start screen that you actually never use.

Note, the same settings will apply in excel.

I've seen this behavior too. And while I don't have a solution, I have

see why and get things going again in an orderly fashion.

It's not very elegant, but it works.

Re: Outlook 2013 Hanging Jaws

Shan Noyes
 

I use jaws and Outlook 2013 and have experience the same problems as you with it hanging
The trick I have found is that after starting outlook if I do control and to start composing a new email then hit escape the clothes that as the first thing I do once outlook is up then the system never hangs on me
But if I don't do that as the first step then if I try to open an email to read or do something else outlook hangs and goes into Lala space and I have to shut down Josh restart it and then stop and restart Outlook try it out let me know if it works

Subject: Re: Word 2013 Question

Hello Martin,
I am not experienced with find and replace so I may have not done it
correctly, but I pressed control H to open the dialog, pressed shift and
number 6 on the numbers row, Jaws said carrot, then typed 11, in the edit
field. I tabbed to the replace edit field, and pressed the space bar. I
pressed enter and was told they had finished searching the document. I
pressed enter again, and went back to the find what edit field. I pressed
escape, and went back to the document, complete with vertical tabs,
haahaahaa.
Cheers Kevin.

I can't test it but I thought of an easier way. In the Find What box enter a
SHIFT 6 followed by 11. That should find them.

Please someone tell me how to do this easily. Like Kevin easy is what I
want. Usually I do as Kevin does, delete.

One more thing. I don't know if you can accomplish the Replace in the
Replace dialog box without using the Accelerator Keys (the ALT key
combinations). You have to select the More button and the Special button to
choose Manual Line Break. I don't have Word in front of me at the moment so
I can't tell you what they are.

If you can get JAWS to tell you the ASCII character, you might be able to do
A search-replace, and get rid of them that way.

The thing I would like to know is how to get rid of them easily. Often when
I copy a text from this list for example and paste it into my notes every
line of speech says vertical tab, and I need to go to the end of each line,
press delete on the vertical tab, press space, and enter to fix it so Jaws
is reading the text without saying vertical tab at the end of each line.
Tedious what! Smile.
Cheers Kevin.

A regular or horizontal tab creates blank space across a page. A vertical
tab creates blank space down the page. I don't know the keystroke for a
vertical tab, though.

What is a "vertical tab?"

Bye for now,

Hello List,
I also encounter them when I copy and paste from an email, and would
like to know if there is a quick and easy way to get rid of them other
than deleting them one at a time.
Cheers Kevin.

I was going through a document in Word 2013 that was given to me at
work, and I noticed that Jaws kept saying Vertical Tab from time to
time.
I understand that tabs can help with the placement of text in your
document, but I have never heard of vertical tabs before. So if
someone could explain what a vertical tab does, and what keystrokes
would you use to add a vertical tab to a document that you were
creating, then I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Chris

Re: reading or converting columns in MS word

 

Tom,

            Have you tried reading it and are getting "garbage"?  I ask because if the person who created it used Word's built in feature to lay out the document in columnar format like a newspaper or newsletter JAWS should be able to read that in the manner it was intended to be read.  If it's not then I'd have to have a gander at what the original author did to create this layout before I could comment further.
