creating graphs in word or excel with JAWS

Starner, Alicia <astarner@...>
 

Hello Everyone,



I am needing to create a graph of data for a major project that I am doing
for school. Does anyone know if I can create line graph to chart data with
Word 2007 or Excel 2007 or above.



Alicia

speech settings in miranda

Kristoffer Gustafsson
 

Hi.
I've decided to try out miranda.
But I can't find how to change settings, for example I want miranda to speak when a contact logs onto msn.
How do I change that?

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Okay, Ann. I'm just trying to get the thing to read, and that ribbon
thing was truly odd. Those shortcuts ought to be in the help file, but
I'll certainly keep them around. Thanks.

In case you don't have this already, here is an address for keyboard
shortcuts for PowerPoint.

Good luck!

In light of yesterday's Power Point discussion, I was messing around
last night with a file I happened to have on hand, but could never read
for money marbles, or chalk. I rotated views, shrank, and enlarged,
and finally, quite by accident, found a solution. If I engaged the
Office ribbon menu, prior to invoking Say All, a slide would read
perfectly.
Otherwise, it would go straight down to the bottom of the presentation,
and emit a string of dings (imagine a vibraphone player doing a drum
roll with his mallets), telling me it was hitting bottom over and over
again. Does this sound as crazy to you guys as it does to me?

Yes, Press f5 to start the slide show. Press spacebar to advance to the
next slide, Backspace to reverse. If you set JAWS to read all, I think
you get too much information. Leave it at reading highlighted.

Works very well.

Re: Power Point 2007 and JAWS 13

When I took an office 2007 class I had this very same issue. When editing
the pages or viewing them, don't use the preview within the program. Use the
slideshow directly from the file and it avoids this issue.

In light of yesterday's Power Point discussion, I was messing around last
night with a file I happened to have on hand, but could never read for money
marbles, or chalk. I rotated views, shrank, and enlarged, and finally,
quite by accident, found a solution. If I engaged the Office ribbon menu,
prior to invoking Say All, a slide would read perfectly.
Otherwise, it would go straight down to the bottom of the presentation, and
emit a string of dings (imagine a vibraphone player doing a drum roll with
his mallets), telling me it was hitting bottom over and over again. Does
this sound as crazy to you guys as it does to me?

The command to bring up the placemarker dialog is control+shift+k. to
locate the placemarker after it has been created, just press k.

Recent versions of JAWS have made this feature especially helpful with
the "anchor to text" option.

You begin by placing focus on the item you wish to mark. In my
experience, the placemarker stays constant only if I set it on a link.

When you bring up the placemarker dialogue, JAWS places you in a field
that is rarely helpful. Tab once to "Add" and press the spacebar. From
here, you tab through a few choices. For example, one asks if you wish
the placemarker to be anchored to the text where you have placed focus.
Press spacebar to accept.

A less obvious decision must be made for the query whether you want the
placemarker to apply throughout the domain, or website. An example where
this is desirable is the "print" link found in many newspaper websites.
When I land on an article in a newspaper I visit regularly, I
immediately press the letter k to locate the print link, where I have a
placemarker that I've set to apply on every page in the website.

But making the placemarker apply throughout the domain isn't always
desirable. If you have more than two or three placemarkers on a page,
adding a gratuitous placemarker can defeat the purpose. For example, on
one website I regularly visit, there's a particular page from which I
like to link back to my accounts page. I set a placemarker for that
accounts link.
However, there's an accounts link on every page in that website, and I
don't use that link on other pages. So in this case, I ignored the
global domain option.

Be sure to tab to the Okay button before closing the placemarker dialog.

Further to Adrian's suggestions, is that you should never assign a
particular link or element to both a domain and a non-domain. The non-domain
seems to override, so that the marker will only work on a specific page. if
you have difficulty, it helps to go through the list of assigned place
markers and remove both instances of the same marked element and start over
again.place marker

Subject: Is first-letter navigation in Start Menu a JAWS feature


I have a question. Is first-letter navigation within the start menu a JAWS
feature or a Windows XP feature? In other words, if a person who is not
using speech clicks on the start menu, can they use the letters to highlight
the program or option they wish to access?

The reason I am asking is that I noticed something interesting. I use the
program Spybot - Search & Destroy. It automatically created a start menu
entry for me with that name. But I couldn't navigate to it using s or any
other letter or symbol within the name.

What I discovered is that the & symbol was preventing first-letter
navigation. When I renamed the start menu option Spybot - Search and
Destroy, using the word and instead of the ampersand symbol, first-letter
navigation was again possible.

Is this a JAWS bug or a Windows situation?

Thank you.
