In Word, press f6 until you here a message warning you about documents from the web.  You can then tab to a button to allow editing.
Then, I'd save it.

This is probably not the best way to do it, but if you hit control S to save
it, Word  will say that it is in protected view and saving is disabled. If
you tab over to "enable saving" it will take it out of protected view. I
think there is a direct command to protect and unprotect, but I don't know
what it is.

Cohn, Jonathan
 

My guide from when I was helping the trainers at the VA was to curse at Word.
Press alt followed by F followed by I followed by E 

This always reminded me of the song in Camelot "Fie on Virtue".
BTW F stands for file, i for information and e for enable editing.

Take care!

Adjusting Protected View Settings in MS-Office Programs

If you only deal with documents (whether Word, Excel, etc.) from sources you know and trust Protected View is just a PITA.  I always turn it off.

moderated Re: Soliciting Donations of JAWS Dictionary Files (JDF)

 

First and foremost, thank you to all who have so generously contacted me with donations of JDF files so far!!

I also want to make clear that I have a collaborator on this project, and may end up with more than one, and would be sharing these JDF files as needed.  If this were to make anyone considering donation uncomfortable I understand, and would ask that you not share.

I have emailed those who have already donated with this information, but thought it a good idea to put out there for anyone who might be considering donating.

moderated Windows Mail and JAWS

Shirley Tracy
 

HiEveryone,

 

Am I the only person who keeps having Windows Mail mysteriously zapped into Recycle Bin? It sometimes seems to happen for no reason at all, but I have noticed that it definitely happens  more when I’m deleting several emails, one after another. Maybe I key them too quickly? It used to happen only rarely, but now it has become almost an everyday occurance.

 

I’m using my desktop and running Windows 10 and the latest JAWS.

I also find Windows Mail closes at unexpected times, but that isn’t nearly as annoying as having to stop and go to Recycle to restore Mail to the desktop.

 

I’m not whining…I just want to know if it’s only me or if it’s happening to others.

 

TKS.

Thanks for this. Has something changed within Jaws as I used to use insert j or insert y to get to settings, but this no longer seems to work.

Alison, it sounds like you may have sounds mode activated already.  I'm not sure why it's inconsistent in Zoom though. However, the way I do it is open the JAWS setting centre, then search for Forms Mode Sounds. Then F6 to settings pane, then tab to the Enable Sound Notifications checkbox.  Select it. Once it's selected, two buttons become available immediately following it. The first is to select the sound for entering forms mode. The second is for selecting the sound for when leaving forms mode.  Activating the buttons will cause a dialog with list view of sounds to appear, along with 4 buttons, including a play button and browse button if you want to add your own sound effect.

Hi, Jim. I can still add a favorite in Edge by using CONTROL plus D. It gets added to Other Favorites, though.

Heya Folks,

 

Am running latest Jaws 2021 on my windows 10 PC, lately I think since an Edge update am having troubles adding favourites to Microsoft Edge.

 

Can anyone help with a step by step instructions including highlighting the folder I want the Favourite to add too like before.

 

Cheers,

moderated Re: Microsoft Edge and adding favourites

Another problem with Edge is that I haven't found a way to delete more than one favorite at a time. If I try to select more than one favorite to delete in a batch, none are deleted. I wish you could use the delete key instead of having to use the delete option in the context menu.

moderated Soliciting Donations of JAWS Dictionary Files (JDF)

 

Hello All,

         I'm in the process of trying to put together a JAWS JDF dictionary format to NVDA DIC dictionary format converter.  As a part of that effort, I'm asking for anyone who's willing to send me a copy of the JAWS JDF dictionaries they've put together.

         There is absolutely no nefarious intent here, none.  There are people using any given screen reader who've spent years putting together their own private dictionary files who'd like to have those available in other screen readers they'd like to use, and as things stand no one has scripts/add-ons/utilities that perform this function.

          If you feel like tossing a copy of your dictionary my way, please use the Reply to Sender link at the end of this message to send it to me off-list.  The last thing we need is a flood of copied and pasted JDF files landing in the inboxes of everyone on the group, mostly because they're just noise for those not doing what I'm trying to do.

If you hold down the shift and delete key the file get's removed without going to the recycle bin or hearing all that extra stuff.

I am in a list of documents and I want to delete one which is highlighted. I hit the delete key, and Jaws asks me if I want to delete it, which is fine with me at my old age.

Then without just deleting it, Jaws says the title of the file again and then goes on its way. Any thoughts on how to just have it do its delete thing without repeating?

Using 2021 on a W10 H2 desktop machine.

Appreciate any input, or am I just getting old and the heck with it?
