I just checked.
You have exactly 17 choices for date format in Excel 2016.
If you want to define an entire column as a date column, go to the top of that column, press control+spacebar, then hit the application key, tab to the numbers format, arrow down to date, and either accept the default, or tab into the list of 17 options and arrow down to the one you want.
HTH,


Richard

Always look out for #1, and be careful not to step in #2.

Good afternoon all; perhaps someone can help me.  this is from one of my clients.

 

I wonder if you had a suggestion about a problem, I am having with excel. I have gone through all of the help info with no luck at all. I don’t know if you can help but here it is. Excel does not recognize date formats as numbers only as text. When I enter a date in a date column, I need it to be recognized as a date in order to sort them to put them in order. I have no luck in using the date value or value function getting an error that my formula is wrong. I have gone on the internet and have had no luck with support.microsoft.com and it isn’t a disability issue for Microsoft accessibility help. Is there something I am missing? Do you have any suggestions ?

Hello,

 

I’m using windows10 and Outlook 2016 and Jaws2019. For some reason I get extra messages when I create a list. Such as the following:

 

  1. This is step one.
  2. this is step two.
  3. this is step three.

 

For some reason it will say level 1. When I arrow down it sometimes says it. When I arrow up it will say it on the last item in the list. It moves around. It even says it on the line after “hello,” What is causing this to happen. There must be some setting on.

 

Thanks,

 

Kevin

I cannot speak to accessibility, but I can speak to the power of the tool:  


TestDisk - Partition Recovery and File Undelete

If things were lost by accidental deletion then TestDisk will likely get them back.  If it's drive failure, it might, and PhotoRec (which can recover more than photos) almost certainly can, though it's a grand pain to sort through the recovered files, as they do not retain their original file names if you have to resort to PhotoRec and you often end up with many duplicates since files get moved around with great regularity and PhotoRec will find all instances.

Hi Michael:

Not sure if you've managed to get your questions addressed in the
meantime, but I would recommend starting with OneNote scripts made my
Do It Blind. They can be found at https://doitblind.com/shop/

Hopefully your tech department can get them installed for you. (I
wasn't as successful).

I, too, thoughtI was going to have to start working with OneNote 2013,
but it never materialized. I also found this in my google search, and
would argue it's more current. http://www.hartgen.org/blog/1

Either way, you'll need scripts, and won't be able to use OneNote out
of the box, as it were.

Best of luck. If you do get up and running, write me off list and let
me know how that went. Will be useful for future reference.

Best,

Patricia

Aimee
 

Hello Everyone,

My name is Aimee and I have just joined this group. Looking forward to sharing knowledge.This topic interest me a good bit. I am starting School soon for computer science. I have some useable vision and will be utilizing a Microsoft surface pro with CCTV software. The CCTV will primarily be used for math and math/statistics classes. Along with the CCTV software package, I will be using Jaws, Duxberry, Kurzweil, open book, word, Excel, outlook, browsing, writing and compiling programs, Various math writing and processing applications, firebird braille graphics, and video recording lectures. I think that is it.  I will frequently be using several of these at the same time  while video recording math lectures.

With that said, I am advocating for the surface with a core i7 and 16 gigs of RAM.  My previous computer has malfunction and is not repairable. I have found a CCTV on the market based off the Microsoft surface. I don't want to have a bazillion different devices. If I can get a portable cctv and computer all in one, I would prefer that. My previous computer was a Lenovo yoga 900 with a core I seven processor and 16 gigs of RAM as well as a 512 GB solid-state hard drive. Thus I feel the core i5 with 8gb of Ram would be going backwards.  I think the core I seven model of the surface will be necessary for productive schoolwork especially considering the simultaneous use of video magnification and distance video recording of lectures along with Jaws and who knows what else at the same time. Am I correct in my assumption of the necessity for the core i 7 16 gigs of RAM surface Pro? I don't necessarily want to go backwards in my equipment either. The Lenovo was purchased in 2016. So, it is not really all that old. I welcome any and all thoughts and suggestions. Is there anyone out there currently engaged in computer science/programming either in school or working who could add some insight here? If yes, please chime in.  All thoughts and insights will be very helpful and greatly appreciated. 

Aimee

Hello all:
Tyler, thank you for the insight. I mainly use Microsoft office suite, and browse the web with this unit. I’m looking on dell.com. I’m looking at a I seven 512 solid-state drive with 16 gig of RAM. And a plain graphics card. That retails for $1200. I’m not looking to spend more than that, and it states it’s a gaming computer. If the unit specs will last me around six years plus I would be very happy with that.

The only reason to have the faster processors is if you are editing large audio or video files and multitasking with some processor heavy software, which most people do not do.

And, if I remember correctly; which may be a big if, those graphic cards he mentioned have been problematic with Jaws.

Unless he has some software that is requiring it, which would be surprising.

I will never go back to a standard HD drive after using my SSD drive now for a year.

Hi,
This is completely, 100% true.
Although using a solid state drive in 2019 is almost a must - at least for
those that have experienced one. But so far as other sspecs are concerned
there are too many people out there that equate an i7 or i9 to being better
and that simply isn't true for just about 99% of use case scenarios.
Now that I look back at the specs, what are you needing a dedicated Nvidia
Graphics card for in particular? Intel hd graphics does just fine so far as

The suggestion about a 500 GB SSD is totally subjective.
I've seen folks who never use more than 80 to 10 GB of their HD.
Too often people think bigger is better and that is not always the case.
Also, when you look at all the high specs, what are you doing with it all?
I mean, I'll bet 90% of us here don't do any more than read eMail, open some

Well, that was a good question. Not something I’ve used in a while, but I just put on The Face of Fu manchu and was able to accomplish this by:

Hit ctrl-t

Enter time in hours, minutes, seconds, separated by colons.

Hit enter.

This feature is a little finnicky as compared with, say, the “jump to time or frame or whatever” dialogue in goldWave, which can interpret many different types of values. Looks like you have to enter in the hour amount in single digit, regardless of where you want to go in the video. So for example, for thirty minutes, I type

This version won't automatically download as of right now, but may in future.  It didn't seem to be as accessible as the old version at first.  I tried messing around with window classes and stuff to make the folder list read, but that didn't help.  I finally changed to vertical view in the view/layout options, and all started behaving normally.  I think that is what fixed it, but I can't be absolutely certain.


If anyone wants to try the program, they can download it, but they should back up their profile folder before they install just in case they can't deal with it and need to go back to Thunderbird 60.


Good luck.

Thanks.  Looks like I'm going to have an interesting morning. I've tried a few different options, but I still can't make the folder list speak when arrowing through it.  This may need someone who knows more than I do.

Subject: reclassing a control with Jwas.

In Window-eyes there used to be a way to attempt to reclass a control if it wasn't behaving properly.  Is there any way to do this with jaws? I'm trying out the new thunderbird 68 and the folders list doesn't seem to read anymore.  I'd like to fix it.


Thanks.

moderated jaws and VLC

Hi all,

I'm just wondering if there are any scripts ETC that have been developed
for use with jaws and the popular VLC media player? I'm coming back to
jaws after several years away, from a screenreader that has a great many
community addons, one of which is for vlc so am just wondering if we
have any scripts for use with this program?

Thanks much,


Daniel
