Re: instead of office?

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

If it matters, I seem to recall that Open Office was modular, rather like Microsoft Home Essentials. It combined the various modules into one large whole, rather than presenting separate programs in a suite. If you need only lighter versions of the major programs, you may never notice the limitation.

And the problem with Facebook is that it constantly changes. So, whatever
works, enjoy while it does, because in all likelihood, it won't for long.
I can't find that Facebook Mobile is any more friendly than standard
Facebook at this time.

Bye for now,

Bonni,

You are probably correct. I, too, use Facebook for work. Some things are
doable in Mobile, but a lot of the Facebook page sophistication requires
the full version. Now I've found some weird things with Facebook. For
instance, if I click (press enter or space bar on) Share, the link called
Share turns into a "button" called Share, but nothing else happens. If I
hit it again, the "button" called share turns into a "menu" called share,
but nothing happens. Third time, I hit share, and the Menu opens up.




Essentially, my experience is that if it makes sense, don't expect it to
work that way in Facebook. Experiment a lot, and sometimes try the same
thing two or three times.

Lately, JAWS hasn't worked on certain edit fields like the comment field on YouTube and the messenger field on FaceBook. I've switched different browsers like Internet Explorer and Google Chrome from my usual Fire Fox, and have also tested on NVDA. NVDA still does fine with edit fields from everywhere, while JAWS seem to not work on the fields I have already mentioned. I can't enter them at all, manually or automatically or semi-automatically. How can I fix this? I've gone to the form field settings on jAWS, but can't seem to find the setting I need to fix the issue.

That is strange. The share link always works for me with both Jaws and NVDA. I manage a Churches face book page and post quite a bit and share different things on FB and haven’t ran in to that many issues as long as I use the mobile sight on my PC.

Re: External cell references in Excel

Go to the cell you want to reference. Press Control+C. Go to the target
workbook and find the target cell. Hit the context sensitive menu key and
arrow down to Paste Special. Shift+Tab to the Paste Link button and hit
enter. Now the link is pasted and you have the reference in place. From
there you can hit F2 and add any other needed formula elements to it to do
your calculations.
Note that this is the same procedure for any link from another sheet in the
same workbook too -- it's a standard set of steps to set up links to other
data sources.

I suspect that Outlook is opening with the Outlook folders by default, and this folder set is not associated with any specific e-mail account and cannot be deleted.  However, if you set up a different inbox as your start folder you can conveniently ignore it entirely.

Your message came through. I have Outlook, but only one address in it right now, so when I open, Inbox is the designated box.

Therefore, all of their commercials are just going nowhere.

Thanks for this additional suggestion, Les.

I'll give the insert F2 Jaws Manager set of options a try here when I can
get back to the laptop.

I'm not going to be picky about which piece of information comes first and
which follows; I'm just trying to lessen the overall verbosity of Jaws when

Hi Tom,
While your inbox or another folder is in view with the list of messages
showing press Insert-F2. This brings up the Jaws Manager. One of the first
options you'll see is one for Customize Outlook Message List. Press Enter
and you'll see a speech tab. You can customize what is read by either
checking or unchecking an option with the space barr. As for the order of
what's read, I don't know how to change that. Mine will read the flag
first, the sender and subject headers, which is what I want. It seems to
work the sane as it did with prior versions of Outlook. The Microsoft

Do you have any thoughts on how to get Outlook 2016 to not be quite so
verbose when arrowing through various message folder listviews, such as my
in-box, my sent file, etc.? For example, I have to read through a whole
bunch of extraneous information about a message before I get to the fact of
whether it's read or unr ead; whether it has been replied to or not,
etc.. In Outlook 2010, this used to be noted at the very beginning of the
list summary for each message, followed by the message header information
such as who it's from, date and time of delivery, etc..

I have to believe there's a way to correct this problem somewhere in basic
Outlook configuration settings, but am not sure where to look.

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!

Subject: seeking a jaws 17 W10 helper/tutor

 

Listers: A good friend has jumped into W10. He uses jaws 17. He is not a member of this or any other list. I can’t help him with W10 because I am not there yet.

 

He is seeking someone to help him by email with keystrokes for getting around in W10. I think he is willing to pay for the help.

 

Let me know if someone is interested.

 

Stan

Joe,

           If memory serves, Windows 7 start menu shortcuts can be renamed by gaining focus, activating the context menu, and choosing rename.  I'm not in front of my Win7 machine at the moment, but I recall renaming stuff on the start menu this way.  Please give it a try and report back.

Brian

Subject: Edit boxes in Facebook

Hello all, I have not been following this list much lately, so apologies if
this is a topic that has been covered already. I do not use Facebook much
because I find it very complicated to use with jaws. However, right now I
have to use it for my job. I noticed that it does not go into forms mode
automatically in and edit box. No matter what I do, I can't seem to get it
into forms mode. What am I missing?

Thanks, Bonnie
