Thanks to David, I went and looked at the LibreOffice web site. It is the successor to Open Office, according to their site, so yes, go with LibreOffice. Here is the link:

Hi, Ann,

This was such a great question. I know someone who needs a different wordprocessor until they can get MS Word again.

Someone suggested Google Docs. A month or two ago, I would not have recommended it. However, this was because I never had any luck with it. I was wondering, what if someone is not always near a WI-FI connection, will Google Docs still work, or would another program work better? I'm just curious.

 

Sincerely,

Jasmine

My 2 cents would be to call the Microsoft Accessibility desk.  After all it’s a Microsoft product and who knows they may know of some weird settings or something that will make it work.  Because after all on Windows 803 after trying all sorts of things to fix my issues that popped up when I upgraded I called them and the tier 3 folks solved the issue and it was the strangest thing.  They had me lock my screen in landscape mode and that corrected the issues of my keyboard echoing repeating incorrect things when it was turned on.

 

Anyways, just a thought. Good luck and report back as to what the fix is

 

Thanks and have a good day everyone

Hi. Have two issues using hyper v with narrator.

When creating a vm, and then installing windows server 2019. Have not tried it with 2016. Narrator does not turn on, just hear caps lock on and off. And nvda does not turn on either. Also tried the audio end point builder and audio srv inside a vm, in windows server. Does not come on. Wish there was a way for narrator to detect if the client talk back to the server. Did try vm ware player, able to use the windows 10 talking installer. Did read the install screens for windows server 2019 essentials. But when it rebooted, no speech, and just the vm ware window. So no good. And virtual box kept chrashing when I tried to use it. So hyper v is built into windows 10 pro which I have. So for the most part it is accessible with jaws, nvda. So, any one got any scripts, work arounds, or how they get around it. Having to wait for sighted people to remote in to my machine, and then having to do this. Would like to set it up without sighted help. Microsoft has a gap in this space. Did give feedback on the user voice and also feeback hub if Microsoft reads my feedback. Unless you can direct me where I could contact the narrator accessibility team and also the windows server accessibility. Frustrated. Got 3 weeks to do two last practical assignments. And stressing out. Then every oen goes on vacation for a few weeks. Got till January  9 to complete my current course.

If any one has had issues, being totally blind, how did they get speech, under hyper v virtual machine. Don’t have access to a dedicated server. Remote connection manager, worked some times and connected, then would not do that. So just used the hyper v connection I had. And then when getting out of one of my vms, if I do a shutdown, does not go back to the host, totally chrashes my speech. If I disconnect, still get speech which is weird.

Any ideas.

Just frustrated

As the compatibility pack is an executable file you can just press the enter key while you are pointing to the file in order to install it.

In view of the problem someone  experienced, as an experiment  I  went onto another machine without Jarte.

I too found the enable screenreader copied to clipboard instruction did not work.

However the following did.

  1. Install Jarte
  2. Close Jaws and start NVDA
  3. Start Jarte, Jarte will announce screen reader mode.
  4. Close NVDA and start Jaws. Restart Jarte and it sticks in screenreader mode for Jaws  also now.
  5. .Now finally  with Jarte in focus use Jaws F2 and find settings centre for Jarte and create the profile. Type edit in the search box and then tab down to uncheck enhanced edit mode.
  6. The only other thing I  think is to install the office Add in pack to improve Jarte compliance with Office Documents.

 

This all seems to work nicely to get a free Jaws accessible Word Processor for now.

Hi. If you're referring to the Office Compatibility Pack you can read more about it and download it from this link. The Jarte documentation indicates that this pack was automatically installed for users of Office 2007 or later. However, Microsoft must have at some point decided that this addon was no longer needed as I have Office 365 installed and I was not able to open a file in Jarte containing a .docx extension.

I have never used Google Docs precisely because of this problem but apparently checking on Google last week there are instructions for using Google docs offline. As far as I can see though this is certainly not the default and ironically you need to be online to make this setting change. So I imagine that if, for example, your Wi-Fi suddenly goes down you may indeed be locked out of all your documents.

*Subject:* control right arrow and letters being spelled instead of
words being said?

Hi

               My Jaws has over night started spelling things when I
hit the control right arrow. Is this a new jaws thing and how can I make
it stop. Thanks to all.

Oh my gosh! Thank you! I haven’t seen it do that before. Is that a new version thing? Thank you, that was so easy I’m embarrassed to have asked.

It’s because the spell word command was used, insert number pad 5. If you press the insert number 5 again, it should stop.

Since I often point folks on the NVDA group (on which I'm a moderator) here when JAWS questions come up, I'll give the addresses to the NVDA group here, because that's where those questions are appropriate:

The following addresses are those most commonly used to interact with the NVDA Main Group:

 

To join:  nvda+subscribe@nvda.groups.io

 

To unsubscribe:  nvda+unsubscribe@nvda.groups.io

 

To receive a message containing the group description, and a list of these commands:  nvda+help@nvda.groups.io

 

To post:  nvda@nvda.groups.io

 Besides the dedicated NVDA list, the best list for discussing both NVDA and Open Book is the more general Blind Tech list, many of whose members are very knowledgeable about these two programs.  To join, send a blank message to:

If it has to do with using anything with NVDA it should be fine.

Hi guys:

 

I apologize, but I have to ask this on this list;

 

If I recall,

There used to be a n v d a discussion paralleling this one;

Does anyone remember what the address for it is?

I have a n v d a question which I probably am not allowed to ask here;

 

Please advise as you like.
