I see what you’re trying to do. I don’t know of a command that will get you to the next value, but I wonder if there is something with filtering that will tell you the next number or value. Then doing a search for that or filtering to the next value.

 

I will let you know if anything else comes to mind.

What I’m trying to do is say I have a column of information. That is thousand of lines long.  I can sort it and when viewing the first item in the sorted column I want to jump the focus down to the next sorted value in the column.  I have no idea what it is or what  where it will show up.

 

e.g. say it is a list of ip addresses from a server log.  I am on the first ip, I don’t know how many times this ip shows up before it changes to the next ip address.

 

Hopefully that explains what I’m wanting to do.

 

Thanks

I have the keystroke that you are needing.

Ok, hold down the control and shift. Do not let go of theese 2 keys. Now while holding down these keys, hit down arrow, do not hold down the down arrow, just press it. wait a second, then hit the backspace key. The backspace key is normally above the enter key.

Each time you press the backspace key, it will jump to the next different value in the column.

I have tested this and it does work.

Sorry, but still trying to figure out exactly what you are asking to do in Excel.

If you have one or multiple rows that you are switching between, then you could look into using Monitor cells. You can designate up to 10 cells as monitor cells. After designating a cell as a monitor cell, you then can have Jaws say what is in that cell no matter where you are on the worksheet, and you can also choose to move to one or multiple monitor cells if you want. All Jaws keystrokes dealing with monitor cells can be accessed by pressing Jaws key + the letter H.

If you are wanting to just return to the previous cell that you were at, there is not a particular keystroke for this. You can use f5 or control + G to bring up the Go to dialog box. You can then type in the cell you want to move to, or tab once for a list of prior cells to move to.

Hopefully this was of some help.

moderated Jaws erratic behavior while composing E mail messages

T. Civitello
 

While composing E mail messages in Windows Live Mail Jaws will not back space or delete and the only way I have found to cure this is to unload Jaws and restart it.  Using the latest version of Jaws and the latest version of WLM the one with the ribbon menus. This doesn’t happen all the time but often enough to be irritating. It is not happening on this particular message.  Tom

Dr. James Dobson told this true story about a missionary in the jungle. One day the missionary entered his hut, and a gigantic snake, one of those that can swallow a whole pig, was inside. He went out to his truck and got his revolver. He only had one shell. He went in and carefully aimed at the head of that monstrous snake and pulled the trigger. The snake was mortally wounded, but he didn???t die right away. He began to writhe and thrash around, his tail going this way and that! He literally tore up everything in that hut as he was dying. 
 
Jesus at Calvary put a bullet right in Satan???s head. And what we???re seeing today in our society,  are the death throes of one who has been mortally wounded by the cross of Jesus Christ.   satan knows his time is short and he is doing all he can to take millions to hell.  It's time for Christians to 'wake up' and start sharing the glorious Gospel of Christ!  (1 John 5:11-13)

Both instances, JAWS would say "link".

You can also copy the 9 to 10 digits number and paste it into the Zoom

Although it shows it's reading icons and text as I type, it is not reading the content of the email or what I have written when I arrow down. Any suggestions?

Lol…yeah, meanwhile it seems like most NVDA users don’t have these problems..I wonder why that is? Coincidence? Like I said though, Firefox 8 seems stable at the moment on my desktop here, which at least is running JAWS still half the time or more (it’s an older version, too…)

Hi,

 

I spoke with someone at Freedom Scientific (or whatever they call it now) and she said they are well aware of Firefox crashing. She didn’t go into details but I gathered they don’t think it is a JAWS problem but rather something with Firefox. But again, she didn’t say that in so many words.

Paul,

Thank you for this tip. I downloaded the file and experimented.

 

I noted in one case where I thought I’d delete a program, it offered, instead, to update it. No removal option. I went through the update process and decided not to remove for now. In another instance, it did remove an unwanted program.

 

Query: the Geek.exe file doesn’t create a recognized program or a desktop icon, or did I miss a step?

Hi,

 

I hope this isn’t straying off topic, but Brian recommended uninstalling using Revo Uninstaller. I agree with him , whenever I uninstall anything from my PC I always use a third party uninstaller to ensure it removes all traces of the program as the windows installer often leaves behind  a lot of unneeded files. I personally use Geek uninstaller (which is free). I’ve used Revo Uninstaller in the past, and although it was accessible I found it wasn’t the easiest to navigate with a screen reader, which is why I use geek, it works well with jaws and is really simple to use, when it opens you are in an edit field where you can type the name of the program you want to uninstall or press escape for a full list of programs currently installed on your machine. I do have to confess though I haven’t used Revo Uninstaller for a long time, so it’s possible they might have improved accessibility since I last used it.

I've never had this happen with the Google Chrome browser, nor seen it reported elsewhere.   If you've done a complete uninstall and reinstall, and that has not fixed the issue, the only thing I could recommend is using something like Revo Uninstaller, after having done the regular uninstall for Chrome, then trying to install again.

These days, there are so many Chromium-based browsers that if you like Chrome you can transition to virtually any of them without even noticing you have.  New Edge and Brave are both good options, and there are others.

If you have Dropbox installed on your computer,, and you have the icon show
in the Task Tray, this information is shown when you highlight the Dropbox
item in the Task Tray.

Mind you, if you do not have Dropbox installed on your computer, and you
decide to install it, the installation process is not very accessible, at
least, I have never found it so, and in my opinion, it has got worse over
time.

Using Jaws (latest version) E-trade's site is pretty accessible.?? e-trade's customer service stinks however!?? Your hold time on the phone is excessive.?? I use Jaws and from time to time want to get stock quotes.?? The phone system bounces between voice commands and touch tone.?? You have to guess.?? Stock quotes are also delayed.?? I e-mailled them 6 times about this issue alone and wrote print letters to them 3 times....no response and they never fixed the problem.?? E-trade was sued by the blind years ago for failing to make things accessible to the blind, but apparently they don't care.?? This is just part of the reason why I moved my account to Fidelity....much, much much better!!!


I am Listening for the Shout!,
(1 Thessalonians 4:17-18)

George
Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Dr. James Dobson told this true story about a missionary in the jungle. One day the missionary entered his hut, and a gigantic snake, one of those that can swallow a whole pig, was inside. He went out to his truck and got his revolver. He only had one shell. He went in and carefully aimed at the head of that monstrous snake and pulled the trigger. The snake was mortally wounded, but he didn???t die right away. He began to writhe and thrash around, his tail going this way and that! He literally tore up everything in that hut as he was dying. 

Jesus at Calvary put a bullet right in Satan???s head. And what we???re seeing today in our society,  are the death throes of one who has been mortally wounded by the cross of Jesus Christ.   satan knows his time is short and he is doing all he can to take millions to hell.  It's time for Christians to 'wake up' and start sharing the glorious Gospel of Christ!  (1 John 5:11-13)
