Weird.  I've never had anything untoward happen with using the control key for silence in excel.  Navigation seems quite fast for me in excel, you may be suffering from an old computer.

Hi,
Go to the documents folder.
If a file is selected, press ctrl+Spacebar to deselect it.
Now press Shift+F10 to open the context menu.
Choose how you want to sort the files. 
Thanks,

I don’t know how this happened, but please help! I can’t get my list of folders and documents to turn back to listing from A-Z instead of Z-A. I know how to fix the desktop when that happens, but not file explorer.

 

Everything was fine last night when I shut down. Today, poof! They’re in reverse alphabetic order.

 

Thanks for any help.

Yes. For example, Go to JAWS Settings Center with JAWS key plus six on the numbers row.
1. Put the words virtual ribbon into the search box.
2. When you see Virtual Ribbon, press the TAB key, and you will hear the following if you use the up and down arrows to read,

Select this check box to turn on the Virtual Ribbon Menu. When it is on, the Ribbon is organized and navigated using a traditional menu and submenu format. This is true for any application that uses Ribbon menus. This makes it easy to navigate using ARROW keys or first letter navigation. This option is only available when Default settings are selected in the Application combo box. It is unavailable for other application specific files that are loaded. This check box is cleared by default.

Hi George,

 

I have JAWS 2021 and just tried Research It after reading your message. I received a notice that I needed to install the feature. I was given a choice to click yes or no. I clicked “Yes” and in seconds got the message that the Research It feature was installed and ready to use.

 

My take away is that you now have to have JAWS 2021 installed and the Research It Feature as well—but someone else may have more information than I. I would think that older versions would keep everything they had in those versions.

moderated creating and working with appleid on the web

Hi,

I need to setup an Apple ID on the web I can create the account, but
there it stops. jaws don't work with anything. I can click on add
payment, but then I get nothing from jaws. If I wait a bit I can get
back to the website, but I can not do anything. What am I missing. I
find this hard to believe that accessibility would be this terrible. I
am using windows 10 and ms edge and jaws 2021 and I've tried it with
jaws 2020 and still am having no luck.

Thanks.


moderated Re: Office 2019 vs Office 365

David Kingsbury
 

Hi,

 

Like one or two others who have commented, I have had 365 for several years and have not had any accessibility problems beyond the typical issues one always has from time to time. One other big advantage of 365 is that this includes 1 terabyte of storage with the One Drive cloud service. A similar amount of storage with Dropbox costs about $15 per month.  At $69 for one PC, or $99 for up to five, Office 365 strikes me as extremely reasonable. 

 

For those who say they don’t do subscriptions but are on this JAWS list, even if you do a SMA, that is just a subscription with another name after paying the initial hefty purchase price.  Good for Freedom Scientific for introducing an annual subscription alternative a few years ago.
