Me again. Sorry, Jim, there's a much easier way now. Facebook actually got
it right.

1. Bring up the person's Facebook profile.
2. Again, use the Control f function to bring up the Jaws Find Dialog.
3. Search for the word following
4. You should hit a "following" button if you're friends with that person.
Pressing space bar on that button should change it from "following" to
"follow".

That seems to do it. They don't seem to offer you choices of all, most, or
only important updates, but that following button seems to say you get the
items in your newsfeed or you don't. Give it a shot.

Re: Silencing the Pronunciation of Keystrokes

Dan:

INSERT/JAWS KEY+2 (on the numbers row of the main keyboard. Press the key combination, until JAWS says "none".

You should take advantage of the JAWS help system, to learn how to use more of the functions of JAWS.

Thank you very much bread. That help me out a lot.

For what it's worth, I'll tell you how I used to do it, and you can give it a shot.

1. Bring up the person's profile on Facebook.

2. Use Control f with JAWS to bring up the JAWS Find dialog. Search for the word friend
3. You may have to arrow down a line, but you should hear "add friend menu" followed by "friendfriends menu". Press spacebar on FriendFriends menu, and you'll have several options:
The first one for me is "get notifications". If you check that option, you'll get notified of every post that friend makes as a notification.
The second used to be Settings I think, where you could choose whether to receive all updates, most updates, only important updates, or none. That option is gone tonight for me, but this is Facebook; it might come back tomorrow.

Note: You cannot do this in Facebook mobile. You must use the full Facebook to even have a shot at this.

I don't know if that helps you, but good luck.

And Dan, bear in mind that when you update to JAWS 16 next year, you will
need to do it again. For some reason, these key label setting don't merge
over. A real PITA.

Re: Silencing the Pronunciation of Keystrokes

Lee Maschmeyer
 

Dan,

One can silence either all keystrokes or just specific ones.

The way to silence all keyboard echo is to open Settings Center (Insert+6), press Control+Shift+D for the Default settings, tab once to User, use right arrow to open that item, arrow down to Typing Echo, and press Space until it says Off.

To silence specific keys, go to Settings Center as above, arrow down to Keyboard and press Right Arrow, arrow down to Manage Key Labels dot dot dot and press Space, arrow to the keys you want to silence and for each press Space so the "Speak" turns to "Mute".

HTH,

Microsoft word 2007 and read only

Hi: I'm encountering a strange problem in preparing legal documents using
word 2007. Some of my documents are being saved as read only and I don't
understand why. I am using Google cloud and sometimes take motions from
Google drive and alter them and save them with a new name.
How can I check to assure that the document is not read only? Secondly, have
any of you have this experience when using Google drive? I ask that simply
because this may be the source of my problem.
Thanks for any help. John


Re: Laptop purchasing advice

Feliciano G
 

I am very happy with Dell laptops. I currently own a delve Austro 3560. It is Windows 7 64-bit and has the thumb them identification. The laptop feels solid keys are great and everything else. You can always upgrade RAM so that is not really something to worry about. These modern laptops are solidly built as far as hardware now a days A important thing to look at is whether you want a number pad or not. My laptop does not have a number pad and I love it. If you have any questions. You can email me off the list.

As it is getting increasingly difficult to buy a new machine with Windows 7 on it these day, a business supplier may be your answer. The main thing to consider is as much ram as you can afford, a minimum of 4gig, preferably 6 or 8. Processor speed is not that important unless you want a lot of intensive applications running at the same time.

The Dell Inspiron laptops are solidly built, with good, well spaced keyboards with number pads and accessible usb ports. The only downside is that there is no application key, but shift F10 will do the same thing.

Hope this might help.

Hello everyone,
I have been using JAWS with windows XP for 5 years and have had very
few issues. But since support for windows xp is ending soon and I am
going back to school, I am looking to buy a Windows 7 laptop. But all
of the resources I have read on freedomscientific.com and other sites
are kind of vague about the system requirements needed for JAWS,
especially with regard to processor speed. I am not a tech expert, so
all of the jargon overwhelms me. Five years ago, I worked with DVR who
purchased my laptop through a vendor, but this time since I have some
money from a temp job, I thought it would be fun to pick out my own
laptop. Little did I know how overwhelming this would be. So I am
wondering if anyone who uses a windows 7 laptop and is happy with it
could give me specific recommendations on exactly which brands (Dell,
Lenovo HP etc) you have found to be the most blind-friendly in your
opinion, and exactly what specifications you have found to work best.
Thank you so much in advance for any input you can offer.

In fact the supplier did this for us.

We were then left with a plain, vanilla version of Windows 7 Home so that we could install the software of our choice without having to go through the hassle of uninstalling all the trial software that usually comes with a consumer machine. As it is getting increasingly difficult to buy a new machine with Windows 7 on it these day, a business supplier may be your answer. The main thing to consider is as much ram as you can afford, a minimum of 4gig, preferably 6 or 8. Processor speed is not that important unless you want a lot of intensive applications running at the same time.

The Dell Inspiron laptops are solidly built, with good, well spaced keyboards with number pads and accessible usb ports. The only downside is that there is no application key, but shift F10 will do the same thing.

Hope this might help.

Cheers
Deddajay

Hello everyone,
I have been using JAWS with windows XP for 5 years and have had very
few issues. But since support for windows xp is ending soon and I am
going back to school, I am looking to buy a Windows 7 laptop. But all
of the resources I have read on freedomscientific.com and other sites
are kind of vague about the system requirements needed for JAWS,
especially with regard to processor speed. I am not a tech expert, so
all of the jargon overwhelms me. Five years ago, I worked with DVR who
purchased my laptop through a vendor, but this time since I have some
money from a temp job, I thought it would be fun to pick out my own
laptop. Little did I know how overwhelming this would be. So I am
wondering if anyone who uses a windows 7 laptop and is happy with it
could give me specific recommendations on exactly which brands (Dell,
Lenovo HP etc) you have found to be the most blind-friendly in your
opinion, and exactly what specifications you have found to work best.
Thank you so much in advance for any input you can offer.
Allison Nastoff

Re: table help

Allen Stutts <astutts@...>
 

I've never had to do this before, but I suggest trying this.

Go inside your table and right click.
Arrow down to Borders and Shading and hit Enter.
There is a tab called Borders.
Tab down once in this tab and arrow to None if it is not already selected.
Tab to Okay and hit Enter.

This is in Word 2010, but it might be the same in 2007. Good luck.

Allen

Hello All,

removing the lines in a table. I have a document created in a 2 column
table, but I don't want the lines to show on the final document. how do I
use the keyboard and JAWS to remove these lines. The only directions I can
find related to doing it with a mouse.

Thanks,

Hi Zdenek,
To get an accurate recommendation, you must specify the country as this may
influence greatly pronunciations.
Keep in mind that your hearing ability may also play a part in the
preferences as well.
Some people prefer female voices as the pitch is higher or maybe because it
reminds them of their mom calling them for lunch,...(smile)
Being in Canada, I can give you the following recommendations.
(U S English) Samantha
(Canadian French) Julie
((Mexican Spanish) Javier

If I were in Europe, my recommendations would go as follows.
(Australian English) Karen
(French France)Virginie
(Castilian Spanish) Diego

Regards
Guy Castonguay
