How do I move into and out of the header/footer pane in MS Word 2016?

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

I am using JAWS 2019 and MS Word 2016 under Windows 7.  In a particular Word document, I went through the ribbons to create a footer, and ended-up in that pane.  But, I got stuck in it and could not figure out how to move between it and the main document pane.  F6 only moved me around virtual ribbons / status bar / footer pane, never getting back to the main document pane.  So, how do you get into and out of the footer pane?

 

Thanks,

Richard

If an automated system could solve those annoying captchas, don’t you think bots would have render them useless by now?

They are very difficult for sighted people to work out and often take several attempts.  My wife, who has 20/20 vision has trouble with them.

I doubt a feature like this Picture Smart is going to do much, besides, you would have to figure out from the entire screen which part of it was the captcha.

I think our energy is better put toward convincing web site developers who do not provide a useful audio challenge to switch to a system that is logic based, or a math problem, etc.

 

Just my two cents worth.

In theory, yes, that is if the OCR feature lives up to the hyp. I suppose the only way to know is to try it out.

Hi.

 

As you all are probably aware, a new version of jaws was released yesterday, and I have a question about the Picture Smart feature. Can this make it easier for us to solve those captias we’ve spent years on battling?

 

Thanks.

Hi: I'm using Jaws 2018 and 2019 and windows 10. Is there a way to get to a specific time if you know what it is in an audio file with Windows media player?

I have used Turbo Tax online for the last few years. It seemed to work pretty good. It's the only one I know of that can pull in the W2 from ADP directly, since the PDF file is a nightmare to try to read with JFW, at least the way my company does it. When one can have it automatically import, it's pretty easy to do. I don't know about the CD version as I never used it.

With regard Quicken or Quickbooks. I thought I heard that Intuit was developing Quicken with some accessibility built into the quicken program. Perhaps calling their office in Mountain View, California could settle that question.

Re: Jaws with turbotax and quicken

Yes, agree with Amanda. Have been using Taxacts since 2004 and as long as you stick with the step-by-step guidance feature, you can very easily understand what you are entering, and go back as often as you like to check your work or edit entries.
 
Beware of the quick entry method they offer...that is a forms-base entry method that absolutely does not work with JAWS. That is more like Turbo Tax presentation.
 
So go for Taxacts. It is 99% accessible. That 1% I ran into this year when trying to enter the selling price of my capital gains property sale. The clever folks at Taxacts decided that there was one place where only quick entry was offered, and I raised h**l  about it to their development team to put back the step-by-step in that place. They said they would feed that back to the team for next year...fingers crossed.
 
But again have been doing my taxes since 2004 with Taxacts and JAWS. And BTW you don't need to have any JAWS scripts to make it work. It works out of the box.

J2019.1903.9 Update Download Link + What's new

Mike B. <mbrunner5702@...>
 

Hi All,
 
Below is the direct download link for the latest JAWS update build, J2019.1903.9, + what's new in this release.  The download will work for both 32 or 64 bit operating systems.
 
32 or 64 bit:
 
 
Enhancements in JAWS 2019.1903.9 (March 2019)
 
The following is a list of improvements made in JAWS 2019 between the January 2019 update and the March 2019 update.
 
Picture Smart for Describing Images with JAWS and Fusion
 
Picture Smart allows you to choose a photo and submit it to be analyzed. A description of the image is then displayed in the JAWS Results Viewer window.
Descriptions might include details such as the number of people in the photo, recognizable landmarks, landscape details such as "outdoors with a blue sky
and green grass," if there are vehicles such as automobiles or trains, and more. If there is text in the picture, it will OCR the text and provide that
as well.
 
To use Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by P. Once the Picture Smart layer is active, the following keystrokes are available:
 
list of 5 items
• A - Open the Picture Smart dialog box where you can acquire an image from a flatbed scanner or the Freedom Scientific PEARL camera.
• F - Describes the currently selected image in File Explorer. Supported images include BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIF, or PNG.
• C - Describes an image associated with the current control. For instance, a graphic on a web page or in an email message.
• B - Describes the contents of the Windows Clipboard if it contains an image.
• QUESTION MARK - Displays help for the Picture Smart layer.
list end
 
JAWS now also creates a new PictureSmart folder which is located in your user documents folder under My Pictures. If a single image is saved to this folder,
JAWS will automatically submit it for analyzing and display the resulting description.
 
To use Picture Smart, the "submit annonymous usage data" option must be enabled in Settings Center. This sends encrypted information to Freedom Scientific.
The images from Picture Smart are then submitted to the various services (such as Microsoft and Google) which analyze the images and returns the descriptions
back to us. These descriptions are then displayed in the Results Viewer. If you attempt to use Picture Smart and this setting is off, a message displays
prompting you to turn it on.
 
Note: Picture Smart is currently only available while in the English Language UI of JAWS and Fusion as the services that perform the image analysis do
not currently support international languages for descriptions of images. For users of localized versions of JAWS running in versions of Windows other
than English, you must switch the JAWS UI language to English to try out this feature. We plan to make Picture Smart available in more languages in the
future as these services continue to expand to include additional languages.
 
Improvements With Selecting and Copying Content in Chrome
 
After working closely with developers at Google, we are pleased to announce that starting with Chrome version 74.0.3717, an update scheduled for release
by April 2019, selecting and copying text using the keyboard will now include the HTML markup as we have done in Internet Explorer for years. The functionality
is included for all users of JAWS and Fusion 2019, providing the ability to copy live links, lists of items, and even tables from the Chrome browser and
pasting them into Email messages or Documents without losing the formatting.
 
Virtual Cursor Support in PowerPoint Presentations
 
When you press F5 to start a slide show in PowerPoint, you can now use the Virtual Cursor to navigate slide content just like a web page. This enables
you to do the following:
 
list of 6 items
• Navigate the slide show and read all content, including text, labeled graphics, and other objects.
• Use TAB or SHIFT+TAB to move to links and activate them with ENTER or SPACEBAR.
• Use Navigation Quick Keys to move to various object types such as headings.
• Use the JAWS table reading keystrokes (ALT+CTRL+ARROW keys) to navigate in tables.
• Obtain lists of objects including links, headings, tables, graphics from a running slide-show and be able to activate or move to the desired item in
the list.
• Use the INSERT+F or INSERT+5 (on the number row) commands to check the format and color info of text on a slide.
list end
 
Filter Consecutive Duplicate Links Now Off in Chrome and Firefox
 
Frequently, web page authors will create a graphical link and a text link that appears to look the same. Visually, sighted users think of this as one link,
but it is really two different links that point to the same location on the web. For screen reader users, you end up having to read the link twice with
no real benefit. For years, to help stream line the reading experience, JAWS has offered a feature in Settings Center called "Filter Consecutive Duplicate
Links," which is enabled by default. As a result, when reading web pages with the Virtual Cursor and you encounter consecutive links that point to the
same location, one graphical and one text, only the text link is announced.
 
Beginning wit the March 2019 update, this setting is now off by default in Chrome and Firefox due to visual tracking issues when using TAB or SHIFT+TAB
on a page. The visual PC focus that moves as you TAB can get out of sync with the virtual focus that is following, especially in Chrome and Firefox. This
could cause confusion for anyone looking at the screen or using JAWS in conjunction with screen magnification software like Fusion. For users of Chrome
or Firefox who are willing to accept the possible confusion because of the visual aspect described above, you can always open Settings Center (INSERT+6
on the number row), search for "Duplicate", and  reenable this feature. This setting is still on by default in Internet Explorer.
 
Other Changes
list of 12 items
• In Speech On Demand (INSERT+SPACEBAR, S), all sounds played by JAWS are now muted. This includes the sound you hear when pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR to
enter Layered Keys mode as well as the sound heard when completing an address in Outlook.
• The options for configuring spelling and grammar error detection have been expanded and are now available in Settings Center. You can find these settings
under the new Proofing group in Text Processing.
• JAWS spelling error detection now works when editing slides in PowerPoint.
• Resolved a reported issue with Braille where the display was blank when first starting a PowerPoint slide show.
• Resolved a reported issue where Track Changes was not working correctly with JAWS in the retail version of Word 2016.
• In Word, addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not announcing the word count in a document when pressing the Word keyboard shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+G.
• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS would close unexpectedly when sscanning a document with Adobe DC Pro.
• It is no longer necessary to restart JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion when installing or removing voices through the Add/Remove Voices utility. Voices are immediately
available when installed and no longer displayed when removed.
• A description of the layered keystroke to copy the speech history to the clipboard (INSERT+SPACEBAR, CTRL+H) has been added to the layered help (INSERT+SPACEBAR,
QUESTION MARK).
• Addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not saying "Not Selected" when using CTRL+SPACEBAR to unselect an item.
• JAWS now reads subtitle information for items in Windows Settings (WINDOWS Key+I). This information is automatically spoken for the Beginner verbosity
level and is off by default for the Intermediate and Advanced verbosity levels.
• The "Use Accessibility Driver for Screen Capture" option in Settings Center is now unavailable when running as Fusion.
list end

That may be because, on some laptop computers, when the battery gets lower, Power Saver mode kicks in, and your processor slows down.

Danny and all:

 

Well, I’ve solved, or at least partially explained my Jaws sluggishness issue.

 

This morning, when I experienced the issue, I was running my computer on the laptop battery.

 

At the time, the battery was about half charged.

 

As soon as I plugged the computer back into the power supply, things returned to normal.

 

I wouldn’t think running the computer on the battery would make a difference, but, in this instance, it seems to be the case.

 

It’s rather strange, I know.

I’m using JAWS 18 and Outlook 13; experience similar, if not worse, issues.  Includes Sluggishness, and getting thrown out of Outlook when attempting to  open emails by pressing enter.  Also, this morning, when I’d tab or shift tab, within message, to get to an attachment, JAWS would just go completely silent on me for at least thirty seconds and when returning, had lost focus.kept

I use the email client, not web mail, which, I’m told by  our IT guy, is the reason for my issues.  I prefer to use Outlook email client, the web mail is more difficult to navigate, in my opinion.

Hello, everyone.

 

I am not sure if this is related to the recent Windows update I just experienced, but I am now finding that Jaws is rather sluggish when arrowing through an e-mail ffolder listview in Outlook.

 

It used to be that when arrowing through the list, I got an instant response from Jaws as I arrowed up or down through the list view.

 

Now, there appears to be a ½ to 1 second delay when working through the list view.

 

I also notice the sluggishness when tabbing through the fields in an individual message.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what might have changed, and how I can correct the issue?

 

I’m using Outlook 2016, Windows 10 version 1809, and the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks as always.

That may be because, on some laptop computers, when the battery gets lower, Power Saver mode kicks in, and your processor slows down.

Danny and all:

 

Well, I’ve solved, or at least partially explained my Jaws sluggishness issue.

 

This morning, when I experienced the issue, I was running my computer on the laptop battery.

 

At the time, the battery was about half charged.

 

As soon as I plugged the computer back into the power supply, things returned to normal.

 

I wouldn’t think running the computer on the battery would make a difference, but, in this instance, it seems to be the case.

 

It’s rather strange, I know.

I’m using JAWS 18 and Outlook 13; experience similar, if not worse, issues.  Includes Sluggishness, and getting thrown out of Outlook when attempting to  open emails by pressing enter.  Also, this morning, when I’d tab or shift tab, within message, to get to an attachment, JAWS would just go completely silent on me for at least thirty seconds and when returning, had lost focus.kept

I use the email client, not web mail, which, I’m told by  our IT guy, is the reason for my issues.  I prefer to use Outlook email client, the web mail is more difficult to navigate, in my opinion.

Subject: Problem With Jaws Sluggishness With Outlook E-mail

 

Hello, everyone.

 

I am not sure if this is related to the recent Windows update I just experienced, but I am now finding that Jaws is rather sluggish when arrowing through an e-mail ffolder listview in Outlook.

 

It used to be that when arrowing through the list, I got an instant response from Jaws as I arrowed up or down through the list view.

 

Now, there appears to be a ½ to 1 second delay when working through the list view.

 

I also notice the sluggishness when tabbing through the fields in an individual message.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what might have changed, and how I can correct the issue?

 

I’m using Outlook 2016, Windows 10 version 1809, and the latest build of Jaws 2019.

 

Thanks as always.

Real Speak voices disappeared

Mario
 

A friend of mine has a computer running Windows 7 with JAWS 17, and has
the Real Speak voices installed for when he wants to use a male voice
for when he uses the keyboard and a female voice for everything else.
but the weird thing is when setting up a profile, the Real Speak voices
aren't listed. another problem is he can choose the Eloquence profile
but none of the voices are listed either.

would reinstalling the Real Speak voices be the thing to do, or is a
JAWS repair in order?

When on battery, your power settings can be set to slow the processor down to save battery life.

If you are talking about Templates in Microsoft Office, you can type the word "accessible " in front of the form you are looking for, as in "accessible resume." Thos will bring up the templates that the Microsoft team has added that have Accessibility features built in. If that's not what you are asking about, sorry!!

Well, mine is a Dell laptop.

 

I forget the model number, but it is a gaming unit with 16 gigs of ram, which is why I was surprised to find the battery as the cause of this morning’s sluggishness problem.

Some laptops use different processor speed settings for battery versus ac power to make the battery run longer on a charge.  Some do this using the typical power app in control panel, processor speed can be changed in the advanced settings.  Other laptops use their own proprietary program.
