moderated Re: Question About Excel

Ali Ismail <haydaraliismail90@...>
 

I seem to have the same problem.

I normally use excel for a glossary of terms. As I am a university student,
numerous terms that I have to deal with are new to me. Therefore, I have an
excel work sheet divided into four columns. In the first Colum, I have a
word that requires a definition, in the second Columb I have the type of
word i.e. verb, noun, adjective, or adverb; then, in the third Columb I have
the definition, and finally, in the 4th Columb I have an example of the word
applied in a sentence.

I have often observed that when I am using f2 for a cell within the first
column, I can comfortably use my left and right arrows to check the spelling
of a particular word. However, if I go to my third or fourth Columb, which
constitutes of multiple words, I am unable to use jaws to navigate within
the cell. This is really strange, and I have not found a solution to this
problem. I have also tried the suggestion mentioned below with regards to
unchecking the 'allow editing directly in cells' box, but it seems to be
unsuccessful on my end.

If someone has a solution of this, I, likewise, will be very grateful.

Below are the specs of my computer:
Lenovo ThinkPad laptop with windows 10 running on it.
Jaws version 18.
Microsoft office 2016

With the best of wishes,

Ali

Maybe.
1. In Excel, go to advanced options: alt-f, then t, then a.
2. Tab to "allow editing directly in cells" and be sure it is not checked.

Good luck!

Lately, I have noticed that when I hit the F2 key to edit a cell, JAWS
reads the contents, but I cannot move through the contents of a cell.
For example if I want to check the spelling of an entry, I usually hit
F2 and arrow back and forth to see the spelling. I do the same thing if
I want to check a formula. Am I missing a JAWS or Excel setting?

Hi Phil,
 
Try these settings to make your folder navigation a little better with OE Classic.
1. Press, Alt + T, for Tools and press the letter, O, for options then on the General tab, uncheck always Show the Send & Receive window, tab to, Apply,
press the spacebar, and tab to get to the list of options.  When you get to, General down arrow to, Layout.
 
2. On the layout tab, tab to, Position Email combobox and put this on Hidden.  Tab 1 time to, Show header and you want this checked.  Tab 1 time to, Position
News combobox and again choose, Hidden.  Tab 1 time to, Show header and uncheck this checkbox.  Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close.
Note: On the layout Tab, I don't have, Contacts checked, but I do have Folder Bar, Folder List, Tool Bar and Status Bar checked.
 
I'll tell y'all this folder list reading sucks, but you can only try to make it better and experimentation is a must.
 

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers & Rams!

Hello Fellow Listers
 
I have installed the OEClassic free version and everything seems to work fine except that my Jaws2020 will not focus on or read/speak the folderlist or message list. Also, I have not determined what key command such as TAB or Enter is used to open or close a folder.
 
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong, please?

I will remember that next time if there is a next time, lol! I had to wait a little over a week to return the device and I did go through the process of exercising the pins and didn't help. You would have thought this would have been caught at the company before it was sent out but of course it was only a dot 1 in only one cell. I have noticed that sometimes dots stay up when shutting down the device and I have to turn it back on and shut it down again to make the dots drop. I wish I could use my alva model abt80 that's 23 years old but it is no longer supported by jaws.

It is pretty standard that you pay for shipping to a company, but they will cover the shipping back since it is under warranty.
I recommend sending things via Priority Mail through the US post office.

It is much cheaper than FedEx or UPS and you can track the package etc.
I hope you communicate with them before sendning it in and had done all the steps to exercise the pins and generate the log files to send them....

Ali,

Orbit Research will be releasing a 40 cell display very soon. Their 20
cell is quite good. The 40 will cost about $1400.

Freedom Scientific sells their Focus 40 5th jeneration display for
around $2800.

Humanware and The American Printing House for the blind have released
their Mantis 40 cell display that has a TWERTY Keyboard instead of a
braille keyboard for around $2500.

HIMS has the QBraille 40 that I believe is about $3200.

I hope that helps you get started.

The remote add-on is available on the home use JAWS license but not the annual subscription. I just wanted to add that. I have users using both the pro and home use licenses with Citrix and the VDI set-up. It does work well.

I would highly recommend that you use the VDI in full screen mode, so you can use JAWS just like you do on your local desktop.

Hello lynn

 

I use jaws with Citrix VDI on a daily basis. 

 

First you need to purchase the jaws remote desktop license.  Now what I am not sure of is if this license is available for the home edition or if it is only available with the pro version.  VFO sales would need to confirm.

 

Once the license is installed then the remote server will need to have jaws installed.  This install does not need a license and is a free install.  Once you connect to the VDI, your client license will be used.

And on the VDI, jaws needs to be running.

 

In  the jaws help, there are a list of commands that can be used.

Hello Lynn,

 

I use jaws with Citrix Virtual Desktop (VDI )  and Microsoft Remote Desktop (RDP)  on a regular basis.

 

First thing that needs to be done is to contact VFO sales and purchase the remote desktop license.  What I am not sure of is if this license is available on the home edition or if the pro version of  jaws is required.  VFO sales will need to confirm.

 

Once the license is installed on your version of jaws (client)  then jaws will need to be installed on the  remote desktops.  The jaws version on the remote desktop does not need a license and is a free install. 

Once the client connects to the server, the clients  license will be used.  I mention this  so that when this topic is brought up to potential employers they will understand that this will not be an added cost on the server side.

 

jaws help has a list of the commands that are used for both VDI and RDP setups. 

 

However what I do for VDI is after I connect,  I use the key combination of control  plus shift plus F1.  This makes the VDI screen take over your desktop and now you can use the jaws commands you would normally use on your own desktop and not have to learn the new key combinations for VDI.

For RDP the key combination is control plus alt plus either insert or page up.  And use the same key combinations to get back to your own desktop.

 

One got-cha is sometimes the caps lock gets stuck and it can take several attempts or a reboot to get it to turn off.  VFO support has not been of any help to address this issue.

 

Hope this helps. 

 

 

Thanks, Abraham

You can get a JAWS dongle for this. Basically it’s a USB that holds the license. JAWS needs to be installed on both machines but you don’t need to purchase a license for both machines. You buy a JAWS dongle from freedom scientific. It holds the license.

 

So I have the dongle on my laptop at home. I also have JAWS installed on my laptop at home. I turn JAWS on on my home laptop. I then remote into my machine in the office and turn JAWS on on my work machine. There is only 1 license for both JAWS.

Hi David, that's helpful. Thank you for telling me.   I actually did the  same thing two years ago  and luckily I have the DVD for Jaws 18 so I end up  reinstalling Jaws 18 on my computer and got fSReader back.   
I guess i should consider using  your method  next time. 
Thanks again. 
Best regards

It is not necessary to uninstall JAWS. Instead, run the installer for your version of JAWS and choose "repair" from the list of options. If you don't have the installer for your version you can obtain it by going to the Freedom Scientific Web site and selecting the Downloads link. Doing a repair will likely bring JAWS back to a default state, meaning that voice settings and hotkeys will go back to their original settings.

Breaking: Settlement Brings Audio-described Content to HBO max

J.J. Meddaugh Oct 19, 2020 11:21 AM ET

 

HBO Max is at long last joining the ranks of streaming services which will include audio description, thanks to a settlement announced today.

Per the agreement, the service will include at least 1,500 hours of described content by next March, and at least four times that amount by March 2023. Improvements to their website and mobile apps are also promised by September of next year.

The agreement was reached between WarnerMedia who owns HBO Max and a group of defendants
including the American Council of the Blind, the Massachusetts-based Bay State Council of the Blind, and Kim and Brian Charlson.

[Read the complete settlement .PDF)(https://acb.org/adp/docs/HBO%20Settlement%20Press%20Release_FINAL.pdf)

moderated Re: Do Google Calendar Notifications work with JAWS?

Rick Miller
 

I don’t know how to turn on notifications in Google Chrome.  From what I have read, it sounds to me like when you turn on notifications in Google chrome you get notifications from other web sites, which I don’t want to do.  Am I right or am I wrong?  If you can tell me how to turn on notifications in Google Chrome I would appreciate it.

 Hi Rick, i'm a user of Google calendar  and here are the following  question  that I may want to ask you. 

1. Did you turn on Notification for Google Chrome? If you've turned on Notification for Chrome, you should get a push notification everytime you scheduled a meeting with Calendar. 

Best regards

Dear Listers:

 

Whenever I create an event using Google Calendar I have been setting notifications but none of them ever turn on, such as if I set a notification to happen two days before the event.  Am I doing something wrong?
