Re: problem with creating a folder

I was finally able to save the folder in my Documents. I now possess a
folder "articles worksheets" and all of my ideas are in one folder. How did
I do it? Keep laughing, Judith

You probably didn't create it under documents. Try going back into word and
go through the steps to create a new folder once again. This time instead of
creating another folder, back tab from the new folder name and see where
your folders are being placed when you creat them.
Once you know where the folder was created, cancel out of that operation and
go to wherever your new folder is.

I hope that's clear.

Re: problem with creating a folder

Adrian Spratt
 

We don't know which operating system you're using. "My documents" suggests XP. What I'm about to write refers to Windows 7, but if memory serves, it also works in XP.

This is a simple operation, but hard to explain. If the other methods people have suggested don't work for you, try this one:

Go back to your original plan, which was to go to documents and create a new folder there.

Instead of pressing the applications key, press alt-f.

Then press w for "new."

When you land on "new," you'll notice it is followed by ellipses. This means you need to press enter to proceed.

The first item JAWS verbalizes will be "Folder." Press enter to land on an edit field.

Type in the desired name of the folder. Press enter.

The folder should appear the next time you open documents.

Accessing specific responses to a posting.

Justin Mc.devitt <jusliz@...>
 

Hello Listmembers:

Some minutes ago, I was using the JAWS search command to search for specific
response entries to a message that had been posted to the list.

After arrowing down through the listings at the beginning of the digest, I
identified a number of responses to the query.

When I input the JAWS Find Command, the content specific to the first entry
was not presented. Rather than scrolling through anywhere from 30 to 50
entries per digest, (which includes the original message from the sender as
well as responses), I thought this might be an easier way to target the
entries that I want to read rather than using the down-arrow key.

Ultimately, is there a way to target and read specific responses to a
posting using the JAWS Find Command or some other command?



Best,



Justin McDevitt

Re: problem with live 365

can you show me how to do that, using windows 7, nvda, and whichever browser you use? none of the browsers I tried worked for me.
also how do I fast forward or rewind in youtube using nvda? I find play/pause, next and previous buttons on the site, but the next and previous buttons simply take me to the next or previous video in a group or mix by a certain artist or under a particular theme. I want to be able to go forward or back in smaller increments in the same video (especially a long video or mix, like say a complete carpenters discography). which browser will work with jaws 13 so I can turn the virtual cursor on and off in youtube and use j, k and l to control the player--unless there's a way to do likewise with nvda? thanks.

Re: did you understand my last question about scripting?

David Ingram
 

I don't think that mcafee live safe is a browser type of
application! It is an application for internet security? You can download
a trial copy of the product to try it. I'd like to script this application.
When you first open the application you'll find different buttons that if
you press enter or the space bar do different things. You can scan your
computer, turn on the firewall, and other things. I'd like to script these
buttons but I'm not quite sure how to do it. I would appreciate any
information that you might have.

Re: Keyboard recommendation

Lee Anne Atkinson
 

Justin,

I currently use the Das Keyboard (USB only). It is clicky, extremely
durable ( a must as a medical transcriptionist) and has 2 additional USB
ports on the back for charging other USB devices. It is fairly
small/compact and I will never use anything else. I used to wear out other
keyboards at the rate of 1 per year. I can get 3+ years out of a Das
Keyboard.

Hello listmembers:

For a month or so now, I have been using a Dell laptop which was issued to
me by AmeriCorps, the parent organization of a Career Education /social
services organization that I will begin working for on Oct 5.

I have become somewhat used to the smaller keys on the laptop. However, I
seem to be making more typos with this smaller built-in keyboard, then with
the traditional USB connected keyboards that I have used with my home PC,
(which have larger keys.)


I want to use a keyboard that will promote and benefit efficiency, comfort

keyboard rows.


One of the JFW tech support staff at Freedom Scientific recommended the
Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 Bluetooth Keyboard which includes a
built-in palm pad.


A tech savvy friend of mine recommended the Microsoft 4000 series keyboard,
(USB only) because from a visual perspective, it looks to be more ergonomic,
with larger key position keys.


If anyone uses either of these two keyboards, or has a recommendation from
another manufacturer, this would really be appreciated.

Re: formulas in Excel

Mario
 

yes, thanks Ann.

On 9/24/2015 10:48 AM, Ann Byrne via Jfw wrote:
Excel needs to know that you are entering a formula instead of data. So
for example if you type into a cell "2+3" you might just be talking
about 2+3=17, not wanting Excel to calculate it. To tell Excel you are
entering a formula, you first press the = (equals) sign. JAWS will say
"type in a formula and press enter".

Formula coordinates can be entered in at least two ways.
1. Enter numbers, =2+3 and press enter. JAWS will read the sum, 5.
2. Use cell attributes for your data. =a1+a2 enter. If a1 is 4 and a2
is 6, JAWS will read the sum, 10.

The beauty of Excel is that when the number in a1 changes, the sum in
the formula cell changes to reflect that. So if your formula is in a3,
and instead of 4 in a1 you have 17, the number in a3 will change from 10
to 23 without your doing anything to it.

If you put numbers into a cell instead of cell coordinates, of course,
you have to change the number.

Excel is a sheet of rows and columns. The rows are designated by
numbers and the columns by letters. So the third column in the second
row would be c2. Columns always come before rows, just as 'c' comes
before 'r'.

Nuff????

I have listened to a web&R training from Freedom Scientific on creating

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Thanks Steve. I'm not using Outlook 2003 myself, and I had posted this query
for a client. I worked with her this morning, and now have her successfully
using the View menu Arrange By submenu to sort her emails as desired. She's
not a terribly adept computer user, but I walked her through this a couple
times and made sure she could do it on her own at least three times.

Thanks,
-Paul

Hi Paul,

The following might be more detail than you want, but I wrote some notes
on this topic in 2006 when I worked for RNIB. They assume JAWS 6 or 8.

1. Sorting by the Arrange By submenu of the View menu

The items in the Arrange By submenu change according to the type of folder
you are in, and the view you have for that folder.

For Mail folders using the default view, the first thirteen items in the
Arrange By submenu offer different criteria by which the current folder
can
be sorted. For Calendar, Contact and Notes folders using the default view,
there are no options in the Arrange By submenu for sorting items.

Most of the criteria for Mail and Tasks folders are self-explanatory, but
a
few points are worth making:
* Not all the criteria necessarily refer to fields which are on screen.
* The Conversation and Subject options both arrange messages according to
their Subject, but Conversation groups the messages and only shows the
latest message.
* The Folder option is only available in search folders, where items from
more than one folder may appear.
* The Email account is not very useful within RNIB, because each member of
staff has only one email account.
* You can use the Arrange By submenu to check how the folder is currently
sorted; the relevant heading will be reported as "checked".

The benefit of this method of sorting messages is its ease. A downside is
that you can only choose from one of the predefined options - you cannot
choose, for instance, to have the messages listed with the latest message
at
the bottom of the list, only at the top.

2. Sorting by column headings with the JAWS cursor

The second way to sort messages makes use of the field headings that
appear above the list of messages. Some of the field headings are text and
some are icons. A mouse user can click on one of these headings to sort
the
messages by that field, and click a second time on the heading to reverse
the sort order. A keyboard user can use the JAWS cursor to accomplish the
same effect, but only on field headings that are text, which in the Inbox
means the From, Subject and Received field headings.

The steps required for this are: move to the first message in the list,
which
will be directly underneath the column headings. Then route the JAWS
cursor to the PC cursor and move up a line, find the heading you want to
sort
by and click it. The keystrokes for this are as follows:
Home - to move to the first message in the list.
UpArrow to move up a line - if the folder is grouped, there is an extra
line
above the first message. If the folder isn't grouped, this keystroke does
nothing.
Insert + NumPad Minus - to route the JAWS to the PC cursor.
UpArrow to move up a line; this should put the JAWS cursor on the column
headings.
Insert + RightArrow and Insert + LeftArrow to check which heading you are
on and to move to the one you want to sort the folder by.
NumPad slash - perform a left mouse click with the JAWS cursor on the
column heading with focus.
NumPad Plus - to switch back to the PC cursor.

You should now find that the messages are listed according to the column
heading you clicked on.

The JAWS Find feature can be used to search for field headings that
consist
of text, i.e. the From, Subject and Received fields. Here are the
keystrokes
needed:
Control + Insert + F - starts the JAWS Find dialogue.
Type in the text of the field heading you are interested in.
Tab to the Direction radio button.
DownArrow to change it to "reverse".
Enter - to start the search. The JAWS cursor will find the field header
and
take focus.
NumPad slash - performs a left mouse click on the field header.
NumPad Plus - to switch back to the PC cursor.

Accessing the field headers that are icons is not so easy. Starting with
the
JAWS cursor on the From field header, press LeftArrow repeatedly to move
to the attachment field, the message type field and the importance field.
It
is still possible to do a left mouse click to sort by these fields, but
JAWS
gives no feedback on any of the headers. As far as I know, it is not
possible
to alter these field headers to anything other than an icon.

Hope that helps,
Steve

Scripting is not for everyone. It's not for me and it may not be for you.

Re: did you understand my last question about scripting?

Bissett, Tom <tom.bissett@...>
 

Is the mcafee live safe interface a browser type interface?
I am not clear on what you want to do. Exactly what do you want the scripts to do. Are you trying to automate a task, find elements on the screen?
