OK, some of us are just a tad-bit dense.
Yes, if you select the picture with shift+arrow whichever direction you are going, then do the applications key, shift+f10, etc., the format picture option is right there.
And, as you said, the alt-text item is above that item if you just arrow up or hit the letter a.
However, how do you then save the alt-text?
I found myself in no-man's-land.
There was a mark as decorative check box and a "yes I'll help button".

If you type in your alt-text, what next?

Thanks,
Richard

Now, this is strange,in Office 365, if I select a photo, press the applications key and up arrow, Format Picture comes up immediately, and one of the selections is Alt Text, although the picture has already been automatically described, with a somewhat gemeric but acceptable description.
This is with very latest updates in Word Office 365.

Hi Shivaji
You should be able to select the image Then Shift F10

Are you getting the Format Picture Option?
There then should be an option of Layout and Properties and Edit Alt
Text is there.
In 2019 when you press Shift+F10 the Edit Alt Text is an option on its
own-
shortcut letter A in that menu.

Hi guys,

Let me clarify my initial post: I am able to edit the spreadsheet, no problems there. MS calls it a template, but it has a spreadsheet extension, XLS. Kinda confusing.

Here’s my question:

If I insert text into A3, isn’t there a keystroke to jump to the next cell that needs to be filled in? Something similar to tabbing to the next edit box in an online form?

I can edit and add and remove cell titles, etc. as I see fit. After that, I have the order form for my business. When it’s time for me to take the customer’s information and fill out the order form, how do I move through the form fields?

If this is still confusing, I’m ok with that. I’m probably using the incorrect verbiage to make my explanation clear. I have other options by which to save the information. Using a “template” seemed easy. Not so much, but I’m learning. <smile> Thanks, Norma

I guess what I need is how to go into forms mode in Excel. I’m sure my answer is out there somewhere, so thanks in advance!

There is a way to protect cells. What that will do, is only allow you to go from one input cell to another. I will have to brush up on how to do it and get back to you. However, a Google search for protecting cells would lead you in the right direction. I hope this helps you.

hi, Thanks for your reply! yes i did search that query over google and went through different articles  telling how to create conditional formatting for duplicate values in Excel, but unfortunately these functions only highlight the duplicate values, which never readable with jaws. i.e. if i enter "123" twice in any column, excel conditional formatting function will highlight that duplicate cell but jaws never tells me if that cell is highlighted or not.

I hope you got my point!

This has also been driving me mad for months now, Brave does the same thing as it is based on Chrome.

In the end the solution I found is not to use chrome to download anything unless it is tiny..

For download only I return to the old trusty Internet explorer – just type  I after pressing windows key and it will probably come up but keep on typing if it does not.

Press control O and paste in the download link. In IE  you will probably have to press F6 to go to the notification bar to confirm whether you want to open or save the download.

After this however if you alt tab away from IE you will not be, unlike the annoying Chrome announcements, me  bothered by the download status.

Alt tabbing back into IE will resume the download status announcements or you can press control J to check on the progress of your download.

Here is an answer from MS for Windows and Multi core CPU's.

From Microsoft - Windows 10 supports a maximum of two physical CPUs, but the number of logical processors or cores varies based on the processor architecture. A maximum of 32 cores is supported in 32-bit versions of Windows 8, whereas up to 256 cores are supported in the 64-bit versions.

Can it use them? Absolutely. Will the average person take advantage of this much CPU power? Not likely.

These types of processors seem to be aimed at the gaming market

Not at all. While games do require some CPU horsepower, GPU power is often king in gaming. I doubt any game would come close to using this much CPU (unless there was a bug) anytime in the near future.

These types of CPU are more for data analytics and number crunching, not for a home consumer. One could make the argument that "more" is better, there are diminishing returns in standard use environments.

There definitely are some applications that can take advantage of such a high number of cores. Video editing, 3D modeling, etc. However, that level of CPU power is not used by the average user.

12/10/2019 1:58 PM, Randy Barnett via Groups.Io wrote:

There are very few programs that actually use more than one core. This is another bit of hype from Intel. with that said AMD has and has had multi core processors for a long time.

Actually I don't know if you can even buy a single core CPU anymore.

from Google:

Single-core processors have more or less been phased-out in favor of multi-core processors since the early 2010s for the mobile, desktop, and server markets. Single-core processors can still be found in various low-power, embedded, and special-purpose applications and devices.Sep 6, 2017

Be careful when evaluating processor speed.  My understanding is that AMD processors have only one core which means that even though an AMD processor  may be rated at a speed of say, 3.5 gHZ, it may not be as fast in real world use as a multicore Intel processor rated at the same speed.

Use the system section of control panel to find out what processor you have, then go here:

and search it out in the chart and get the speed.  Do the same with any new computer you are looking at.

There are very few programs that actually use more than one core. This is another bit of hype from Intel. with that said AMD has and has had multi core processors for a long time. If you have programs that explicitly say they use multi core code then that is when                         it really matters.

Actually I don't know if you can even buy a single core CPU anymore.

from Google:

Single-core processors have more or less been phased-out in favor of multi-core processors since the early 2010s for the mobile, desktop, and server markets. Single-core processors can still be found in various low-power, embedded, and special-purpose applications and devices.Sep 6, 2017

Be careful when evaluating processor speed.  My understanding is that AMD processors have only one core which means that even though an AMD processor  may be rated at a speed of say, 3.5 gHZ, it may not be as fast in real world use as a multicore Intel processor rated at the same speed.

I never liked the accessible site. It just wasn't very good. I have always used the regular site without any real issues. Have you tried a different browser because I don't ever get a robot check.

try the accessibility site. amazon puts a cookie in your browser and if it is
erased it will go to the normal web site instead.

Hi!



Today, after getting an update to Firefox, when I go to amazon.com this “Robot
Check” screen now pops-up.  It has an image capture that requires me to enter
letters into a field before proceeding; and that capture is totally
inaccessible.  What is this?  How can I stop it from happening?



Thanks,

Richard

Nothing new here. you can dew all of the things mentioned already with a e-mail client. IMAP syncs everything across all your devices and you can still use the web portal when you don't have access to your e-mail client. So I don't really get the point other than getting people to use Google directly so Google can track you more efficiently.

Three Reasons to Use Google’s Webmail Option with JAWS
by
Elizabeth Whitaker
 
Gmail is a widely-used email service that is used at home,
work, and school. While it can be accessed through a desktop email application
such as Microsoft Outlook, its webmail option provides more versatility.
 
Google’s webmail option provides Gmail users a flexible
alternative for accessing email from computers and mobile devices. A web
browser and Internet connection are all you need to begin sending and receiving
messages.
 
When you access Gmail through this form of internet-based
email, messages are stored on a web server, rather than on your computer or
device. This frees up disk space and memory for other important files. Here are
three reasons to consider choosing Google’s webmail option when accessing Gmail
with JAWS.
 
Access Your Email from Anywhere
 
When using Google’s webmail option, you can access messages
from anywhere on any computer or mobile device. This is especially convenient
if you travel frequently or need to access email between appointments. Because
your email is all on the cloud, you can also search for and respond to messages
quickly and efficiently without accessing a dedicated computer or software.
 
No Additional Software Is Required
 
Webmail doesn’t require the installation of dedicated
software. Simply open your web browser, go to Gmail, and your messages will be
displayed.
 
Access Your Email Using Familiar JAWS and Web Page Navigation Commands
 
Since Google’s webmail is displayed in your web browser, you
can use JAWS Quick Nav keys and other navigation keystrokes when working with
messages. These familiar commands make learning easier.
 
Want to get the most out of accessing Gmail? Check out our
instructional tutorial,
Gmail and JAWS
 today. You’ll learn how to compose a new email, read messages, search
your inbox, and much more.

resources to supplement your learning experience.

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

Hi to all.
I just check to see if I could down load the patch for JAWS, and I keep
receiving that my jaws is the latest version.
So will have to continue for the next couple of days to check when I receive
the ok to grab the updated patch.
Many Thanks.

You maybe in protected view/mode if this was downloaded.

Go to File > Info and tab to see if it says something like “Enable Editing”.

Greetings,

 

I’m using Jaws 2020 with Office 365. I downloaded an invoice template, but I can’t figure out how to complete the form. I think I should be able to enter data in the first field then go directly to the next field, enter data, and so on. Right now tabbing gets me to every cell, most of which are blank. I guess what I need is how to go into forms mode in Excel. I’m sure my answer is out there somewhere, so thanks in advance!

 

Best,

Norma
