Re: Copying text from a web page

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
copy it with control-c. Get out of the virtual window by pressing escape.

JAWS 13 and Excel

Danny wells
 

Hi All,

I have just installed JAWS 13, and I notice when using Excel 14 that the alt + 1, 2, 3, etc key strokes do not anounce the column headings in the rows indicated. Does anyone know of a fix? Thanks so much!

Re: Copying text from a web page

Matthew Horspool <mhorspool@...>
 

Hi Adrian,

Yes, you're right, and I probably should have made that a bit clearer.

Ideally I'd like to leave well alone and have all formatting copied over.
However, I sometimes end up in a situation where this method simply doesn't
work - I select the text, copy it, paste it and some or all of it isn't
there. I then have to go back to the webpage and try again, and even then
it sometimes hasn't caught everything. It's come to selecting the entire
web page and trimming in the destination document on more than one occasion,
and this just isn't productive for me.

In short, my point here is that I'm only changing the setting because it
seems to be the only reliable way of catching all the text all the time. If
the new default method could guarantee me that quality of functionality, I'd
switch back in a heartbeat!

Hope that clears up my position.

Matthew

Re: Copying text from a web page

Kimber Gardner
 

Thanks to everyone who posted suggestions.

Yes, Adrian, I believe I was having the same problem you were with
copying and pasting web-based information like URLs etc. The behavior
was very strange in that sometimes the copy and paste would work and
other times I would have to do the copy and paste via notepad which is
a bit of a pain.

Matthew's suggestion seems to be working, so thanks for that.

As for whether the same condition exists in jaws 13, I can't say as I
have returned to jaws 12 because of some other issues I was having.

Thanks again, everyone.

I have somehow managed to disable keyboard menu access in Firefox.
By that I mean I can no longer get into the menus with the ALT
key. Control still works, for entering addresses, accessing
Bookmarks etc. but ALT does not.

Does anybody have an idea how to fix this, or should I just
uninstall and reinstall the browser?

Thanks and sorry for the off-topic post. In my own defense, I'm
running the latest Jaws 13, latest Firefox, and Windows 7 64-bit. I
don't know If Jaws is a contributing factor to the situation or not.

Chris

From: Soronel Haetir
This happens when you enable Firefox's full screen mode, to get out of
it activate the search bar (ctrl-K by default) then hit tab so that
the page tab bar is focused then hit f11.

I only recommend doing it there because I have had mixed results when
other locations have had focus but that one seems to work all the
time.

Matthew,

You proposed this method to overcome a problem with copying text from the
Internet. I was having the same problem that I believe Kim was. I've
followed your steps, and they solve my problem. Now JAWS 12 reliably selects
text for copying, which it wasn't before. Thanks.

It means that if I wish to copy text as formatted, with links and so on,
into an email message, I'll have to change the Adjust JAWS Dialog setting.

Does this strip the formatting on the selected material so that you do not

I agree with Sharon; however, if you want to avoid clutter, instead of using
control plus v to paste, try using the "paste special" option if, for

Re: reading numbered lists in Word 2003

Mike & Barbara <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Brian,

You can try any of the following ways to turn automatic numbering off.

Open the tools menu with alt T and press ENTER on "autocorrect".
Press CTRL-TAB to access the "autoformat as you type" tab.
Arrow down and uncheck "automatic bulleted lists" and "automatic
numbered lists".
Enter on okay.
You can also hit the backspace at the beginning of the line it
auto numbered or auto lettered to remove it and temporarily turn
off automatic number and lettering.
Another way;

Go to the Format menu by pressing the Alt key then right arrow to format or
by pressing applications key and arrow down to
Bullets and Numbering; hit
enter. Control tab till you hear "Numbered" and then tab once and choose
"None." Tab to Apply and OK.

Another way;
To get rid of bullets and numbers, do alt. O for Format and arrow twice to
bullets and numbers. Hit enter and select None and tab to OK.

Another way;

1. with Word open, go to the menu bar right arrow to format and down to
auto format and press enter.
2. tab to an options button press enter. This opens a multiple page
dialog box. Listen closely as it opens up. I think it will open on the
autoformat
tab, press control and tab and this switches the pages and listen for
"replace as you type". 3. Now tab through this list. One of the check
boxes
is Automatic
number lists. Uncheck this, tab to okay, again tab to okay and I think
this
will fix the auto numbering.
Hope 1 of these helped. Take care.
Mike

Re: reading numbered lists in Word 2003

Dee & Rick
 

I believe what might be happening is that you are getting two numbers and cannot read because they are sort of outside the margin. Once you type 1., the next time you hit enter the number 2 goes in automatically. If you don't want this to happen you have to double enter and that stops the automatic numbering.
Hope this ansers and/or helps

Subject: RE: Copying text from a web page

Hi Kim,

If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say it had something to do with the new
virtual cursor copy/paste logic introduced into JAWS a couple of versions
back, which has always been buggy in my experience. Try the following:

1. From within a browser window, press JAWSKey+V.

2. DownArrow to 'Virtual Cursor Options' and, if it's closed, RightArrow to
open it.

3. DownArrow until you get to 'Select and Copy' and press the SPACEBAR to
toggle this to 'From Virtual Cursor' (it's on 'Full Content using On-Screen
Highlight' by default).

4. Press ENTER and, just to be sure, ALT+TAB away from, and back to, the web
page.

Let me know if this works.

Matthew

Hi All,

No too long ago someone asked about an issue they were having copying text
from a web page to paste into another document. I can't remember what the
answer was, and now I seem to be having the same issue.

Could somebody refresh my memory?

Thanks,
Kim

Re: Firefox Problem

Mike & Barbara <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Dave,

Below is the original question & answer for it.

----- Original Message -----
From: Chris Smart

I have somehow managed to disable keyboard menu access in Firefox.
By that I mean I can no longer get into the menus with the ALT
key. Control still works, for entering addresses, accessing
Bookmarks etc. but ALT does not.

Does anybody have an idea how to fix this, or should I just
uninstall and reinstall the browser?

Thanks and sorry for the off-topic post. In my own defense, I'm
running the latest Jaws 13, latest Firefox, and Windows 7 64-bit. I
don't know If Jaws is a contributing factor to the situation or not.

Chris

From: Soronel Haetir
This happens when you enable Firefox's full screen mode, to get out of
it activate the search bar (ctrl-K by default) then hit tab so that
the page tab bar is focused then hit f11.

I only recommend doing it there because I have had mixed results when
other locations have had focus but that one seems to work all the
time.

That's what I thought, but thanks for the clarification.

If you "Paste Special" using unicode text, all you get is the text. In
Word, for example, whatever font, style, or attribute is in effect at the
point of the cursor where you paste will apply to the text you paste in.
That protects against mixing fonts in a single document.

Does this strip the formatting on the selected material so that you do not
have various formats in one document? For example, you may copy something
with one font and be pasting into a document using another font. Just
clarifying.


Thanks,
Sharon

I agree with Sharon; however, if you want to avoid clutter, instead of using
control plus v to paste, try using the "paste special" option if, for
example, you are using Microsoft Word or WordPad. Then, choose Unicode
text.

Kim,

You would select the text as you do in any other program with
shift+control+left and/or right arrows then control+c to copy. Press
shift+control+alt+tab
to regain focus to the document where you want to paste then press control+v
to paste.

HTH,
Sharon

Re: Does any version of JAWS work with A V G in Windows Seven?

Dave Scrimenti <dscrimenti@...>
 

I'll tell you one big problem using AVG Free in XP. These trial dialogs for paid AVG keep popping up whenever you try to open the AVG user interface. I don't mind that as such, but you can't read or navigate them with Jaws. So you can't get to the AVG main window. As a result, I've switched to Microsoft's Security Essentials.

Yes, I'm using JAWS 12 with Windows 7 and AVG 2011 and don't see any
problems.

Re: Firefox Problem

Chris,
Just a suggestion. Keep previous messages in the thread underneath yours so we know what you're talking about. When you say: "thanks for that", I read down to see what you mean, but there's nothing there.
