moderated activating filters in google sheets

William Windels
 

Hello,

 

I have to use google sheets on my workplace with jaws 19.

When I am on a cel , jaws speaks “contains dropdown-menu for filter).

 

In the hotkeys of google sheets, I find alt+ctrl+r to activate a dropdown for that filter.

However, this don’t work with google chrome or mozilla firefox.

I have also tried with inser+3 (pass key trough with jaws) but this don’t work also.

 

Any idea’s how I can activate the filter options?

 

Kind regards,

William Windels

No scripts needed.
You might be thinking of outlook express classic as it's called, nothing to do with this.
OE Classic was not remastered from the original, it's just a program made to look like OE.

Hey Everybody,


I am currently using Thunderbird as my email software and lately it's been getting on my nerves. So, which email software do you all recommend? I am currently using Windows 8.1 and JAWS 2018. Thanks.

James Rinehart
 

Hi Sieghard, 

He is taking a computer class where part of the curriculum apparently involves learning drag and drop. I agree copy or cut and paste is the way to go.  I shared this with A person with DSS.  The point being can he take a loose file and put it in a folder as an example?  A person with vision has several ways to try to accomplish this, but a screen reader less ways, but still effective.  My concern is the cut and paste way will be counted incorrect since. He didn’t drag and drop. 

Thanks again for your help and thoughtful response. 

Jim

I still wonder why a blind person would want to use such a visual way to move files from one folder to another when cut and paste works perfectly well and allows you to do 1 file or many all at once.

If drag and drop is the only way to accomplish something as in the example I gave about rearranging the order of icons on the taskbar then it’s OK to use it and it works very well for that, but if there is a keyboard shortcut which is easy and fast then why not use it.

I hate the way MS keeps messing up keyboard commands! I cant get to the app bar with the old method and cant seem to find a way to do it. but if you can get focus on the app bar then right click you can arrange windows in several ways. This makes all windows visible so drag and drop should work but as this is win 10 who knows.

Sieghard and All,
The security issue is a minor issue, as I think the majority of us know enough to not open attachments that we are not sure of the origin, and the slightly outdated security should still catch 99% of what might be a threat.
On the iMap, yes, it does do iMap as well as POP.
On the Windows 10, I don't know about that, and I recommended it since the request was for something to use in windows 8.

Glen may like this, but after taking a look at this website and reading the Windows 10 warning I would definitely not recommend using this.
First of all, nobody knows if this has been updated to address all the many security issues which have come up since the Windows XP days. There just are things which are left behind and OE is one of them.
Secondly, does this even support IMAP or Exchange/Outlook.com accounts or would you be forced to use POP3? For anybody with 2 devices that would be pretty bad.
Lastly, I certainly don't want to reinstall this twice a year after every major Windows 10 update which is what the warning is about, this is from the website:

Information about using OE with Windows 10 or updating to Windows 10
Windows 10 users must know that automatic updates on Windows 10 removes Outlook Express.
Every time a Windows 10 pc performs Major Updates, Outlook Express will be removed and need to be re-installed.
More info about software being removed on Win 10 updates:
http://betanews.com/2015/11/24/windows-1...ermission/
Emails are not being removed as far as we know until today, but Outlook Express must be reinstalled and emails must be re-imported.
We have created the automatic restore tool that restores Outlook Express (and emails, accounts e.t.c) back.
For users that have lost OE from win 10 updates, this tool (restores OE back) can be used:
https://runasxp.com/Thread-Windows-10-up...store-tool
The tool will restore OE back but users must backup their emails before windows 10 major upgrade, for piece of mind.

You can probably fix this not copying on certain websites by going into Quick Settings when the website is open and type “copy” into the search field, then tab once and you get this:

Select and copy full content using on-screen highlight

Press the spacebar and change it to:

Select and copy from virtual cursor

I sometimes experience this problem as well with JAWS 2020 (latest  release), and the workaround is the same as yours: unloading and reloading JAWS. However, I’ve found on one website, the Guardian newspaper and now the Washington Post, that despite selecting text, I can’t get the copying function to work at all in Chrome, my default browser. My workaround there has been to reopen the website in IE, where control-c works. Today, however, I experimented by closing JAWS 2020 and opening JAWS 2018. This time, I could copy material from the Guardian website. This is a JAWS 2020, and possibly JAWS 2019, problem.

 

So there are two problems that may or may not be related. Sometimes JAWS gets tired and won’t copy text until you unload and reload it. Separately, perhaps, JAWS won’t allow copying on at least some webpages on two websites.

David swears by windows mail but I couldn't stand it. Perhaps you could tell me what is going on with TB. Maybe I could help. You could also join the TB list at thunderbird+subscribe@groups.io

I am not sure exactly what Windows 8.1 had as a built-in app, in Windows 10 is an app called Mail, but unless you need a free solution I guess Outlook is the obvious choice as among paid programs it's probably still the most used.
Accessibility is good, but just as with everything it has its issues.

Exactly, if I can move a "loose file" as you describe it into a subfolder in about 5 seconds by pressing Control + X, going to the subfolder and pressing Control + V then I'd tell any sighted instructor who told me he wanted me to use drag and drop to throw away his mouse the next time he uses the computer. To try and teach a blind person to do things the way sighted people do stuff is a joke just as it would be a joke.

Was wondering if anyone has knowledge if Spark Instant Messenger is compatible with JAWS 2018?

Thanks

The one thing I have learned over the years is, some like to do things the hard way and some just don’t want to let go of past ways of doing things.  They insist on using their vision when using a screen reader is much more efficient.

I still wonder why a blind person would want to use such a visual way to move files from one folder to another when cut and paste works perfectly well and allows you to do 1 file or many all at once.

If drag and drop is the only way to accomplish something as in the example I gave about rearranging the order of icons on the taskbar then it’s OK to use it and it works very well for that, but if there is a keyboard shortcut which is easy and fast then why not use it.

I hate the way MS keeps messing up keyboard commands! I cant get to the app bar with the old method and cant seem to find a way to do it. but if you can get focus on the app bar then right click you can arrange windows in several ways. This makes all windows visible so drag and drop should work but as this is win 10 who knows.

Hi.

 

Trying to learn how to do a drag and drop with JAWS.  I’ve opened a folder with some files in it.  Pressed Control + Insert + Numpad slash and I get that drag and drop and to move the PC cursor, JAWS cursor or touch pad to the location where I want to drop.  When I move to another folder, and press the same keystrokes I get an error JAWS saying the drag and drop isn’t found and it might be covered by another window then the drag and drop action is canceled.

 

Any ideas what I am doing incorrectly?

 

Thanks
