Re: JAWS 13, and MS WORD'S "word count"

Dondi
 

Hi,

I tried the key combination of Control+Shift+G but didn't understand what
the panel that popped up had to do with the word count in Word?

Hi Curtis & Kimber,

While in a Word document, try the keystroke control, shift, + G.

You can also try the following;
1. While in the Word document you want the word count from, press Alt + T,
for tools, arrow down to Word Count, & press enter.
2. Route the Jaws cursor to the PC cursor & press the page up button / key.
3. Arrow down 1 line at a time to get the word count & several other
statistics for this document.

Hope this helped. Take care.
Mike

I have the same problem and have gone back to version 12 because of
it. The only other "solution" I have is to read the word count info
with the jaws cursor. It's a pain but gets the job done.

This is an issue that FS really needs to address.

Holger Fiallo <holgerfiallo@...>
 

Hello, all
I am using word 2007, jaws 13, window 7 home. When I want to delete a word, JAWS does not mention the word that I am deleting. In the past word 2003 and old jaws could do it. Do I need to setup something in jaws?

Re: can't get punctuation some to stay

Soronel Haetir
 

As far as I know the quick settings are transient, if you want to make
it permanent do the following:

Use the voice profile window (jaws+j, options->voices->voice
adjustment, and create a profile with the settings you want, then use
jaws+ctrl+s and assign that new profile to the application (you have
to hit tab in the profile selection window to move to the application
assignment list from the default assignment list).

JAWS is an unusual program in that it doesn't allow shut-down options. When
it is done, it always says, "JAWS has made changes that makes it necessary
to restart your computer. Thn, OK is offered. If pressed, the computer is
restarted. With Escape, the same thing happens. Most programs let one

Re: Jaws 13.0.527 Direct Download Links

Mike,

Good info, and rather than "suggest" that it be downloaded and save to the
hard drive I would suggest "crazy not to save to the hard drive" as a more
appropriate phrase.

Many times I've installed the newest update and found that it broke more
than it fixed. Then since I always, always, always save every version on my
hard drive, I am able to uninstall the offending piece of cruddy version and
install the previous version and wait for the possibly-better version some
time later.

Saved my hind-end more than once.

Hi Adrian,
You rightly observed, my problem is not related to Jaws. Well, on a business page, I want to share some legal articles with my clients, and I want them to give the ability to view that document in browser itself just by clicking on the direct link which I share on facebook.
I could have even gone with Google Docs, but firstly I will need to take approval, and secondly at times if you use google docs’s own viewer, it creates formatting problems.
One of the applications which I tried was docs.com, and it worked fine on the fake page which I created, but not on the business page for some reason. It uploads and posts the link on the business page, but when you try viewing it, it gives you an error saying word web cannot open the file, it was terminated, it encountered an error and open the file directly in MS word. (Sorry, don’t have exact text at the moment)
Written to the developers, but as one may expect, no response.
Checked the apps and websites settings, but couldn’t spot the cause of the problem.
No information is available on google.
If nothing works, then only the possibility which will be time-consuming is to create your own application using PHP or something, and use it on your own server. Despite the fact I keep playing with IT related things, but since this is not my profession, I can’t be as quick as I need to be.
Coming back to GDocs, I was much happy with old google docs which was though less accessible, but was usable with IE. This one, is not usable with IE as easily as its predecessor. Specially upload and create functions. One has to use firefox that too upload I couldn’t use easily. Even after uploading, I didn’t figure out how and where to give a title so that link appears properly in the emails etc.
Appreciate you for trying to help me out.

Re: JAWS 13 and Excel

Dave...
 

Yes, the fix is that you have to assign new keystrokes to those scripts.
They changed the keystroke to something involving table mode. Look in the
Keyboard Manager for Excel and you will see those new keystrokes. If you
don't like them like I didn't like them then you can change them back to
what they once were, like I did. I also reassigned the keystrokes to read
the row headers.

Just something FS did to "help" us but really "hindered" us, in my opinion.
They could easily have provided two sets of keys to these scripts.

BTW I assigned Ctrl+Shift+1, 2, 3, 4 for the Column headers and Alt+Ctrl+1,
2, 3, 4 to the Row headers. This was to avoid conflict with the Quick Access
Tools that I always use, that are Alt+1, 2, 3, etc.

Usually, yes. This text would be in the virtual window, and you freeze it by
pressing JAWS key+alt+w. Then select all or part of the text you want and
