Hello
Sometime if I am doing something and have several programs open, jaws 13
tend to quit. Anyone has this issue? If I did not have NVDA things be bad.
When jaws does not work I am able to turn NVDA.

Excel Formula

Steve & Shannon Cook <cookcafe@...>
 

Hi All,

Several months back someone helped me out with an Excel formula. Since then
I have a computer crash and lost the information.

I have an Excel workbook that I keep our check register in. I would like to
be able to create a formula to pull all of the Wal Mart entries out and add
them up to find out how much I spent at Wal Mart. Would someone be able to
assist me with this formula? Thanks in advance!

Steve and Shannon Cook

Hi All,

Someone was asking where they could find scripts for jaws. Below are a few
links where scripts can be found.


To check availability of both “free and pay-for”, versions of Jaws scripts
for programs on this site, visit,

http://www.jaws-users.com/scripts/

Hope this helps. Take care.

A couple things:

First select your entire worksheet and Press Alt+o, then c then a.
This
auto
sizes all columns in the sheet.

then with everything still selected, Ctrl+1 to open the Format Cells
Dialog.
Ctrl+Tab to the Alignment page. Tab to word wrap and check the box.

These things may help.

Also somewhere there is a "shrink to fit" option for fonts, but not

JAWS vs. MAGic with Speech

Carl Blunt <ctblunt88@...>
 

I’m hoping someone may be able to alleviate some confusion I’ve experienced
over using JAWS and MAGic. I use JAWS periodically to test the
accessibility of software packages, interfaces, drivers, etc. – and have
long assumed that any reading errors I encountered were the fault of the
product tested – not JAWS itself.



That is until recently, when I was asked to test the compatibility of a
simple software program with both JAWS and MAGic. The version of MAGic I
purchased included a screen reader option. Because both packages come from
Freedom Scientific, I assumed the MAGic reader to be a very basic version
of JAWS. To my surprise – when I tested MAGic, many of the problems I had
just pinned on the software using JAWS disappeared. MAGic outperformed
JAWS, reading much of the interface flawlessly. [Although JAWS also read
things correctly that MAGic did not, and there were certainly instances
where both programs encountered the same problems.]



I am now at a loss as to how to interpret my findings. I don’t know enough
about how these packages work to come up with a good theory on why I’m
observing these differences. I am deeply concerned that some of the
“problems” I’ve identified for customers in the past had nothing to do with
their software whatsoever. They would very much like to make their products
screen-reader compatible, but at this point I don’t know what to tell them.



I would **greatly** appreciate any help/insight that any of you may have.



Examples:

· JAWS reads the incorrect label for an input field, MAGic does not.

· JAWS fails to read a label for an input field, MAGic does not.

· JAWS does not read the correct values when shifting focus through
combo box options, no issue in MAGic.

· MAGic reads many labels two or three times; JAWS does not.

Hi Dave. Yep, I simply don't hear the word spoken by Jaws when I'm in my email program. Simple solution. I suppose a situation could arise where someone uses the word bulk in an email, but they are unlikely to enclose the word in brackets, triggering the dictionary exception.

Chris,

Like minds, etc...

As I said the word bulk is inserted by a person's own ISP, not the ISP of
the sender. Therefore if George is seeing the first occurrence of the word
bulk then it's his own ISP doing it with some sort of Spam Guard.

Otherwise, it's nearly impossible to stop them proliferating as we each
reply to each other.

Happens on a lot of lists, but I never notice any more as I've created that
dictionary entry as you also suggested.

could you simply make a Jaws dictionary entry that says nothing for
the text string "bulk"?

Some people have no control over that being inserted in their
subject lines.

Sharon,

A couple things:

First select your entire worksheet and Press Alt+o, then c then
a. This
auto
sizes all columns in the sheet.

then with everything still selected, Ctrl+1 to open the Format
Cells
Dialog.
Ctrl+Tab to the Alignment page. Tab to word wrap and check the
box.

These things may help.

Also somewhere there is a "shrink to fit" option for fonts, but not
sure
where it is. Perhaps on the print dialog.

Re: [Bulk] [Bulk] Microsoft 2010 and Excel

Dave...
 

Not my problem. If it starts with one that you receive, then it's your ISP
doing it. If it starts with one that I've received, then it's my ISP doing
it. In any case it's a headache to try and remove them every time they
proliferate.

Just go to your default dictionary, and for the word [bulk]
substitute a single blank space and save.

It will never speak again.

Re: help with Jaws 13

Dondi
 

Hi Mike,

How or where would you want to use this typing interrupt turned off? I
turned it off and saw that my key strokes would no longer stop JAWS from
speaking, it just kept on talking. Just trying to learn something new.

Hi Lori,

To turn off typing interrupt do the following; 1. Press Insert / Jaws Key +
6 on the number row above the main keyboard to open the Settings Center
then, press Control, shift, + D, to open the Settings Center default for all
applications.
2. Arrow down to Users, press right arrow to open.
3. Arrow down to, typing interrupt, & press the spacebar to uncheck this
box.

Now, keep arrowing down until you get to Speech Verbosity. This is where you
will change your verboscity to advanced. Do the following; 1. Press the
right arrow to open Speech Verboscity.
2. Arrow down 1 time to, Verbosity Level Beginner Highest Speech Verboscity,
& press the spacebar until Jaws reads Advanced Lowest.
3. Now, tab to apply, press the spacebar, tab to okay, press the spacebar,
to save all of your changes, & close the Settings Center.

Hope this helped. Take care.
Mike

Hi could someone tell me how I access the advanced verbosity so I can
