Toggling the virtual cursor back on with insert z "once", not "twice", should work to turn the virtual cursor back on. I am not a "google" user; but, that is how it works elsewhere - as far as I know. Jim H


Re: How can I use JAWS to identify a mysterious character?

David, the alt+x must be a feature in JAWS 17? because I'm using J16 and alt+x gives me a ding sound.
the way I know is to navigate to the character and press the numpad 5 three times quickly. this should give the ASCII value or the Unicode if it is a symbol. then just press the numpad 5 key once to toggle off the mode, because if you keep navigating character by character, you'll get the ASCII/unicode of the next/previous character/symbol.
I'm not sure what the laptop equivalent would be if you don't have a numpad.

Hi Tim,

I think the following should work in word - I've tested it in wordpad.

To find out the hex value of a character, move to the character after
that character and press alt+x. The character is replaced by the hex
value, and this value is selected. You can go back to the original
character by pressing alt+x again.

Notes:

1. normally using alt+x, is used for inserting Unicode characters using
their hex value, rather than the other way round.

2. This won't word for the characters a,b,c,d,e, and f, because they're
used in hex.

Re: JAWS 14 with MS Office 2013 or 2016?

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Sounds like a plan. From what I hear, 2016 is not a lot better—no million-dollar improvement to make me want to switch.  But, if I were back in 2003, I might have a different perspective.  Some cool things have happened since then, and I strongly recommend you consider it.  The new PDF capabilities dovetail nicely with JAWS’ new PDF capabilities, so you wind up with a really strong package, especially if your employer participates in Microsoft’s discount program.  You get a full-featured suite for pennies on the dollar.

So it's becoming high time I give thought to retiring my old installation of Office 2003. For reasons a-plenty, most of them outlined on this list, I'm holding off on JAWS 16 or 17 for the next little while. So my question would be this. How useable are later versions of Office, either 2013 or 2016, with JAWS? I fully expect just about everything to require a learning curve, but if half of that learning curve isn't telling JAWS not to do something dumb, then I may just go for it anyway. Thoughts and opinions are, of course, always welcome and even encouraged.


Re: Speaking symbols

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Much of that is punctuation. You can play around with graphics and symbols under Settings Center. The explanation is not all that intuitive, but I think I understand. It would probably make more sense if I started to use it.

JAWS.

HI All,



Earlier today there was reference to dlee.org as the source of
great Skype scripts for JAWS. Under Skype 6.2 and above, there
was an A and a B version. I first tried to download the A
version, the one at the bottom of the web page, but Semantec
completely blocked the A version.



I was able to download the B version, but Semantec argued with
me, wondering if I really wanted to ignore the warning. I
decided to overrule Semantec, based upon having heard about the
web site from this list, and also because I think I had the same
issue back a couple of years ago when I first learned of those
scripts, and I encountered no problems after that first install
of the Skype scripts.



I download lots of files and software installation .exe files,
and I do not remember getting this block attempt with other
downloads.



If the site had not been recommended by people on this list, I
would not have overruled Semantec!



Does anyone know how I can pass this information to the kind
person who provides those Skype scripts? I tried but failed to
find a contact email option on the dlee.org web site. If you
know how to reach him, you can simply forward my note to him, and
he can contact me off list if I can be of assistance in providing
information about what happened.



Sincerely,

Re: is skype accessible with jaws?

One thing I like about them is being able to read messages from the
most recent with alt+1 and go back through the conversation. I can't
always remember which commands are part of Skype and which are
available because of Skype scripts. I think the ctrl 1 and ctrl 2 are
part of JAWS accessibility. I use Skype to provide virtual
instruction every day.
