Re: forms mode

Ann Byrne
 

Sometimes if you unload/reload JAWS it will go into forms mode, or alt-tab away from the page and back. Clearly, you need forms mode and can't get it.

Re: combo boxes

Adrian Spratt
 

A long time ago, someone posted an instruction for when combo boxes behave badly. I've never tried it, but here it is:

When inside the combo box, press insert Z, then arrow down.

Hi all

when I go into internet explorer it always opens a Google search page, now this normally isn't a problem but like today I have a web address so there is no need to search for it but I cant get to internet explorers address bar to type it in.
if I do alt d it just says address and search using Google. so how do I get to my address bar to type the web address in.
I am quite happy to get rid of Google as well as lets face it if i want to use Google i go to the Google web sight.
oh I have windows 7 and jaws 12.

For what it's worth, combo boxes don't seem to be as automatic in Firefox compared with IE.

Problem Downloading Webvisum

Hi All,

Recently I had to have my computer cleaned and returned to factory settings. In doing so I had to reinstall applications. When installing Firefox, I went to go download Webvisum. I pressed enter on the link to install but I am having trouble downloading the extension.

Has anyone else come across this problem, and if so, what steps can I take to rectify this? All assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Marianne,

If you hold down the alt key when you down arrow it should allow you
to read the choices without being taken to each and every one as you
move down the list.

Re: combo boxes

I think you want the alt+down arrow to open the combo box and the alt+up
arrow to close it once you have selected your item.

Re: track changes and Jaws & Word 2013

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Hi Kimberly. Thanks for re-posting this.

Lauren, as some additional info, try the following: While in MS Word, hit
INSERT+F1 twice quickly. This opens up the JAWS help topic specific to the
MS Word application. Follow the link labeled "Helpful Hints for Using JAWS
with Word". There, you'll find another link labeled "Track Changes". This
section is very informative.
-Paul

-----Original Message-----
Hi Lauren,

I've pasted below the text of a message from about a month ago on this
list.
It deals with this exact question.

If after reading it you have questions about how to modify your quick
access
toolbar, let me know. I received some rather good instructions from
another
list member and would be glad to share them.

What follows is that post:

I cleared the quick access toolbar of its defaults, then added the
following
commands:
- Previous change or comment.
- Next change or comment.
- Accept revision.
- Reject revision.
In that order, so you can execute them with alt+1, alt+2, alt+3, and alt+4
respectively.

I also customized the verbosity. INSERT+V to bring up JAWS settings in
word,
search for "track changes" and crank up the verbosity. Then search for
"comments" and do the same. After this change, just arrowing to a modified
line will tell you number of revisions and comments. Arrowing into
modified or tagged text will tell you date of change, who the author was,
etc. Very useful.

I also use INSERT+V to change the verbosity of how JAWS reads punctuation.
When dealing with track changes, you really want this set to "all", in my
opinion.

Another way to jump around is to turn on quick nav keys with INSERT+Z.
Then "r" moves to next revision, and "n" moves to next comment. But, in my
experience, it's easy to forget that quick nav is off, and you end up
inserting
a bunch of "r" and "n" characters all over the place. Beware.

Even if you can move to revisions, determining exactly what the change was
is rather a complex task. When JAWS tells you "paragraph style changed",
for example, you're left scratching your head as to exactly what was
changed.
Okay, to be fair, a sighted user has the same problem.

I may have missed some things, but that's the bulk of how I do track
changes. And I just discussed this about a week ago in this very list, so
you
might look back and check for posts in that thread. It might contain info
that
I failed to mention in this message.


Re: help with Google Docs

Paul Martz <skewmatrix@...>
 

Hm. I downloaded the MS Windows Google Docs app, and that lets me view my
Google Docs directory as if it were a part of the Windows filesystem (that
is, I can access Google Docs files using Windows Explorer).

But I've never had anyone share a doc with me using Google Docs, so I'm not
sure how shared docs would show up using this interface. But if you could
get this to work, then accessing the shared doc would be a no-brainer.

Re: track changes and Jaws & Word 2013

Hello Lauren,
With track changes on as Tim advises navigate to the revision, and when the cursor is on the change, press the applications key, and arrow down to accept or reject.
Cheers Kevin.

Hello Lauren,

AT least up through Word 2010, an easy way to display a clean version is an
old Word keyboard shortcut,
control plus shift plus the letter e. Depending on your JAWS verbosity
setting, JAWS will respond with "track changes on" or "track changes off",
or just "on" and "off". This command does not actually accept track
changes, it simply imbeds the track changes so you see just the text of the
document as it currently is. Very handy.

I do not remember how to accept track changes, but assume someone else on
this list does.
