Hardly surprising given that it's last update was in 2014.  That's why I mentioned that, as unmaintained extensions tend to eventually reach an expiration date for functionality, reliability, or both.

But the instructions I gave do not leave the cut column in place (or a vacated column in the same place as the cut column), otherwise it wouldn't be doing what was asked for.

If you select a column in its entirety, cut it, select another column in its entirety, and then use Insert Cut Cells the column cut is moved wholesale and the letter designations for the columns are reset.  The cut column will be moved immediately to the left of the column selected immediately prior to doing the insert.  This is the only thing that can make sense, as if one wishes to put a column first (in the Column A position) instead of what's there you have to select column a in its entirety, then insert.  Then the inserted column becomes Column A, the former Column A becomes B, etc., etc., etc.

Van Lant, Robin
 

The directions below are good, but you do not need to select the column beside which you want to insert.  It is best to be at the top of the column, though, before hitting the context menu and selecting.  The benefit of using this method to insert cut cells is that it automatically deletes the empty column you just vacated.  If you use the method of cutting a column and pasting it into a blank one, the original column will still be there.  That’s fine if it’s at the end of a table, but probably not what you want if you  are moving columns within the middle of a table.

Select an entire column in a worksheet         CTRL+Spacebar
Select an entire row in a worksheet               SHIFT+Spacebar

Once you have the column selected you want to move, hit CTRL+X to cut it.

Move to the column where you wish to have the cut column inserted to its left, and select it.

Bring up the context menu and then either arrow down to the Insert Cut Cells item and hit enter, or just hit E, which activates that choice directly.

The column you selected first will now be to the immediate left of the column you had selected when performing the insert.

------------------------------------------------------------------

The same basic principle applies to rows, and I believe the insertion point is above the row selected when the insert is done.

And for complete clarity, when I said "select it" above for the column where you want the cut column to its left, I mean select the entire column using CTRL+Spacebar once you're in any cell in that column.

Hi,
If the data is too much different between the columns, this might not work, but I insert a blank column in front of the column that I want to move to the right, and select the column that I want to move and paste it in the blank column.
Control + space bar selects an entire column.
HTH.
Maybe there is an easier way, but in my older version of Office, there is no move option after selecting a column.

Hi all

My Excel skills is a bit rusty. I’m using Office 365 updated and Jaws 2019 also updated to the latest.

 

How can I re arrange columns on a excel spreadsheet using the keyboard?

 

For example, if A1 has contact number, A2 Email address and A3 Name, how can I move the name column over to A1 so that A1 is Name, A2 contact number and A3 email address.

 

Hope I explained this properly.

Brave has it's own built-in reader mode that's not called such.  If you hit ALT, Down Arrow, then use down arrow to get to "Toggle distilled page contents" that's what switches you in to and out of reader mode for a given page.  Unfortunately there's no keyboard shortcut and if you try ALT, Down Arrow, T you get a new tab.

John, this isn’t JAWS related, but here’s my bit for what it’s worth.  When I was a student at the Vancouver School of Theology, we had a crash two-weeks-and-a-half course in introductory Hebrew, just so students could recognize Hebrew to do word studies.  I was able to obtain a braille Hebrew primer and braille Hebrew scriptures free from the Jewish Braille Institute in New York.  You might check it out.
 
As I was reading Hebrew in braille, it was much easier than for my sighted classmates, who had to learn the various squiggles and forms of Hebrew letters, whereas braille Hebrew letters approximate the sounds of the Hebrew.

Hi, folks. In reading the notes for the upcoming JAWS 2020 beta, I noticed that Hebrew will soon be supported for scanning. This is really good news, as I’m trying to figure out how to produce a usable copy, in Braille, of some Jewish prayerbooks and liturgical stuff.

What I’m interested in doing is to be able to create documents containing Hebrew and English in Word (if possible), or at  least in a form that can be edited, and then Braille them in Duxbury.

Given that Hebrew will be available in the 2020 version, will I be able to do this using JaWS?

A response off line is fine.

Hi All,

 

Below is the download link for the J2020.1909.79 Beta 2 release.  I'm posting only what's new for J2020 because there's nothing that I could find for what's new in this specific release only.  Also the direct link to the Beta report form is below the download link.

What's new for J2020:

 

New Features Added in JAWS 2020

 

The following features are new to JAWS 2020.

 

Reduced Double Speaking of Form Control Prompts

 

When navigating and filling out forms on the web, it has become increasingly common for web page authors to include the prompt inside the control in addition
to assigning an accessible Tag for the control. While non-screen reader users only see the written prompt, those using a screen reader are getting both
the Prompt and accessible Tag in Speech as well as Braille if a display is in use. Often times, the web page author has assigned the same text for each,
so it appears the screen reader is double speaking. In JAWS 2020, we have greatly reduced the amount of double speaking of form controls as you navigate
using speech and Braille by comparing the prompt and these tags, and only speaking or brailling them both if they are different.

 

Note: For Public Beta 1, only the double speaking of prompts has been completed. The Braille representation will be corrected for Public Beta 2 in early
October.

 

Zoom Meeting Scripts Added for an Improved Experience

 

Thanks to Hartgen Consulting, basic scripts for Zoom are now included directly in JAWS and Fusion to improve the experience when attending Zoom Meetings.
This platform is used for our quarterly FS Open Line program as well as the free training webinars we hold each month. These scripts offer a more pleasant
experience by giving more control over what you hear, without interrupting the flow as users enter or leave the room or make comments. Press INSERT+H to
view a list of JAWS keystrokes available in Zoom such as turning off alerts, speaking recent chat messages, and more. You can also press INSERT+W to view
a list of Zoom hot keys.

 

Hartgen    Consultancy
 also offers more advanced scripts for Zoom Pro if you are interested.

 

Enhanced JAWS and Invisible Cursor Support for Windows 10 Universal Apps

 

For years, JAWS users have relied on the JAWS cursor (NUM PAD MINUS) and Invisible cursor (NUM PAD MINUS twice quickly) to review and interact with areas
in an application where the PC cursor cannot go. This includes reading textual information which is on-screen but not focusable, and interacting with controls
which are only accessible using a mouse as the mouse pointer will follow the JAWS cursor and NUM PAD SLASH and NUM PAD STAR will perform a left and right
click. However, the Off-Screen Model (OSM) which has traditionally been used to support the JAWS and Invisible cursors is becoming less and less available
as newer technology such as UIA, found especially in Windows universal apps like the calculator or the Windows Store, is now being used exclusively for
accessing screen content. This results in the JAWS and Invisible cursors becoming unusable when attempting to navigate in those windows. All you would
hear in those cases was "blank" as you reviewed the screen. This is because the modern technology currently in use is not able to be captured by the traditional
Off-Screen Model. In those cases, the only solution was using the Touch Cursor, something most users are not as familiar with.

 

JAWS 2020 now detects when focus is in an application where the OSM is not supported and will automatically use the new JAWS Scan cursor in these situations.
You will use all of the same navigation commands as you would with the traditional JAWS cursor or the Invisible cursors.

 

For example, if you open the Calculator or Windows Store in JAWS 2020 and press NUM PAD MINUS, you will now hear JAWS announce "JAWS Scan Cursor" as these
are apps that do not support the OSM. You can then use the ARROW keys like you always have done to move by character, word, line, as well as INSERT+UP
ARROW to read the current line, or PAGE UP, PAGE DOWN, HOME, and END. The mouse pointer will also continue to follow as it always has. The only difference
is that the cursor does not move from top to bottom or left to right. Instead, it moves by element the way the developer laid out the app.

 

While this works in many places, there are still some areas where more work by Freedom Scientific is required. For instance, if you use Office 365, and
try to read your Account version information with the JAWS cursor commands, it is still not possible to navigate and read in these places. That work is
underway and we plan to have an update for this area in the 2020 version soon. Stay tuned.

 

Convenient OCR Updated to Use the Latest OmniPage

 

The recognition engine used by the JAWS Convenient OCR feature has been updated to Kofax OmniPage 20, formerly owned by Nuance. This offers greater accuracy
when recognizing the text from on-screen images as well as text from images captured with a PEARL camera or scanner.

 

For users needing to OCR using Hebrew or Arabic, these languages will be included in later public beta builds or by the final release at the latest Once
these languages are working, they will be installed with any English or Western European download of JAWS and Fusion.

 

Virtual Cursor Toggle Now Tab Specific in Google Chrome

 

Today, there are many web apps where using the Virtual Cursor is not the best approach. An example of this can be seen if you use Gmail in the Chrome Browser.
In these cases, it makes sense to toggle the Virtual Cursor off by pressing INSERT+Z and then use this application with the PC cursor. Many users also
regularly open multiple tabs (CTRL+T) so they can easily access different sites such as GMail plus one or two other pages by moving between the open tabs
using CTRL+TAB. This can become frustrating as you need to constantly press INSERT+Z to get the right cursor in use as you switch between tabs.

 

Beginning with version 2020, we are introducing an option to help JAWS automatically remember the state of the Virtual Cursor for each tab once you set
it. It will also announce whether the Virtual Cursor is on or off as you move between various tabs. Once you close the browser, or restart JAWS, it will
default back to its default behavior so you will need to set this each day as you use it.

 

For the Public Beta, this feature is not turned on by default. It will be enabled by default In later Beta builds. If you would like to try it out in the
first Beta, do the following:

 

list of 5 items
1. Press INSERT+6 to open Settings Center.
2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default file.
3. Type "Tab" in the search field.
4. Press DOWN ARROW until you locate "Virtual Cursor On/Off based on Browser Tabs."

Contracted Braille Input Enhancements

 

For ElBraille users as well as those who regularly use a Braille display with their PC, JAWS 2020 offers significant improvements when typing in contracted
Braille. In particular:

 

list of 5 items
• You should now be able to enter and edit text in numbered and bulleted lists in Word, WordPad, Outlook, and Windows Mail.
• Contracted Braille input is now supported in more applications including PowerPoint and TextPad.
• Improved Contracted Braille input in WordPad, especially when editing a numbered or bulleted list created in Word and opened in Wordpad. This includes
properly handling wrapped items which previously showed the number or bullet on subsequent wrapped lines, rather than indenting the text.
• Improved Contracted Braille input in Chrome, Google docs, and other online editors which can create bulleted and numbered lists.
• Typing rapidly using Contracted Braille in Microsoft Office as well as other applications should no longer result in text becoming scrambled.

General Changes in Response to Customer Requests
list of 6 items
• While browsing the internet, JAWS will no longer announce "Clickable" by default as you move to various content.
• You should no longer hear the message "Press JAWS Key+ALT+R to hear descriptive text" as you navigate form controls and certain other elements on the
web.
• By default in Word and Outlook, JAWS will no longer announce "Alt SHIFT F10 to adjust Auto Correction" when you move to something that was auto corrected
previously.
• JAWS and Fusion will no longer gather a count of all the objects, misspellings, grammatical errors, and so on when a document is opened in Word. This
will enable documents to load much faster, including very large documents containing a lot of these items. You can always press INSERT+F1 for an overview
of what the document contains.
• Improved responsiveness when closing Word after saving a document.
• The AutoCorrect Detection option, previously only available in the Quick Settings for Word, can now also be changed in the Quick Settings for Outlook
(INSERT+V).
