I have been meaning to ask about this elsewhere, and just did on the NVDA Chat Subgroup (since this is not NVDA related).

If you want to follow whether anyone knows of a 100% accessible or very largely accessible RDBMS keep an eye on:  Accessible Relational Database Management Software (RDBMS) - Anyone know of one?

Depending on what you mean, precisely, by "database software," Excel can be used to create accessible files that are used as databases and can be used in other Office suite programs for doing things such as creating mailing labels.

If you're talking about an accessible full relational database manager (RDBMS), I have no idea.  I have heard it said, repeatedly, that MS-Access is inaccessible, or at very best not accessible anywhere near to the degree needed to use it effectively.  And I have no recommendations regarding any RDBMS that is accessible.

Because the presentation is static and boring.  PowerPoint "went multimedia" many, many years ago.  If you can't put together a dazzling presentation with PowerPoint it's absolutely not the fault of the software.  And that's not to take anything away from Prezi, which may be marvelous, too.

Van Lant, Robin
 

I had a coworker a few years ago that was really trying to get our company to move to Prezi from PowerPoint. I remember dreading the thought because it sounded so visual. I really don’t’ hear talk of it anymore, but maybe I’m just out of the know now that that colleague left.  It’s supposed to be some more modern alternative to presenting visual information in a meeting or training. The thought is that PowerPoint slides are static and boring.

moderated Editing cells in Excel

Marty Hutchings
 

I know that this has been discussed here before, but what was that check box that must be unchecked to allow editing in a cell in Excel again?  All that I get when pressing F2 from JAWS is "blank" when I try to read the text in a cell.  Also, my JAWS curser is stuck on the clock in the system tray.  I am using the JAWS 2020 and Excel 2007 and Windows 7.  Thanks.

Firefox for me is an excellent companion to Chrome browsers. One just needs to be patient once in awhile as FF sometimes leaps ahead of JAWS.

moderated Re: How Many of you out there have used Google Calendar?

 

Rick,

            I have several questions before I try to offer any guidance:

1.  Are you already familiar and comfortable with Outlook calendar?

2.  Is the Google Calendar you're trying to manage your own, or does it belong to someone else or another entity and you've been granted modification permissions?

3.  Am I safe in presuming, at least at the moment, that you are trying to use the Google Calendar web interface to create/edit events/appointments?

Google Calendar's own web interface has changed, not like last week recently, but within the last year, so that a minimal set of features for an event, not including notifications, is shown by default.  You must activate the More Options control in order to have the full complement of event options, including the Notifications controls, become visible.  There are only two Notification methods, email and notification.  Email is exactly what you'd think, an e-mail is sent to you to remind you at whatever interval prior to the event you set.  Notification will cause a pop-up on a desktop computer or a notification message on a smartphone that's much like a text, but generated by Google Calendar.

moderated Point of Clarification about Google Calendar

The events I have created on Google calendar were set up by members of my church.  They are usually invitations for me to join a Zoom meeting, and I had them imported from Outlook Calendar and saved them on Google calendar.

moderated How Many of you out there have used Google Calendar?

Rick Miller
 

Dear Listers:

 

I am learning how to use Google Calendar.  I have learned how to create an event, but am trying to set notifications.  I have read that there are three ways to receive notifications—either by e-mail, desktop or alert.  Notifications are not working.  When I create events for myself, usually, I don’t want to invite any guests.  The events I create are primarily Zoom meetings or classes at the church I belong to.  When I have tried to set notifications I have gone into the General settings of Google Calendar.  When it comes to notifications it shows that there are three kinds of notification settings—off, Desktop or alert.  When I create events for which I have described—for meetings at church or Bible study meetings in which I do not want to invite any guests, how can I go about getting notifications to work?  Is there anybody out there totally blind who has used Google calendar?  If so, is there any way in the world you can help me or give me the advice I need?
