this depends on the player different servers use. not all of the servers use
the standard you tube player.
first make sure focus is on the player.

then turn off browse mode then the controls will work.
control m, or m will mute/un mute.
j k and l for rewind, pause and skip forward.
if you have a full desktop keyboard the seperate left and right arrow keys will
do the same thing and the up and down arrows will increase or decrease the
volume.

Hi,



I haven’t had this problem before.



When I open a link in YouTube to play a file, I get no sound. I understand the
clip is playing as the time indicator progresses as it should.



I cannot find a mute/unmute button reliably, but when I do, and toggle it,
nothing changes. Volume in the YouTube player indicates it is at 100%. Changing
this to different values has had no effect.



I’m totally stumped at this point on how to try to fix this.



Running latest Jaws 2019 on Windows 10. This has persisted over many days now,
and persists despite numerous shutdowns and restarts.



Thanks in advance for any help. Keith

The date in that document is a form field, of the type date, that's set to update to currentdate().

See this Office Help Page:  https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Insert-edit-and-view-fields-in-Word-c429bbb0-8669-48a7-bd24-bab6ba6b06bb

If you want to view fields in any document ALT+F9 makes them visible.  You can either choose to remove the field and put in the date you'd like to keep in the document, or you can use the CTRL+F11 shortcut in the field to lock it after you know it contains the date you want.  For myself, I just nuke the date field and put in the text for the date as it should remain forever.

Form fields are great for saving effort every time something is opened, but if the document is to be then a permanent record, it's better to do a Select all (CTRL+A) then use the CTRL+SHIFT+F9 command to unlink all the fields and retain their current values.  See:  https://word.tips.net/T001864_Deleting_All_Fields.html

Re: bullets in word 2016

 

I will report on the test I just did, and the results are as I expected.

In Word 2016 you cannot just select the entire document and remove all bullets.  You can select bulleted lists in their entirety and then remove the bullets, but if you have other text selected at the same time it does not work, even if that's a single line of text above or below the list.  This makes sense to me as the controls related to lists, bulleted or otherwise, are supposed to apply only to lists and not to other text.

ALT+H,U takes you straight to the bulleted list control and I always land on the bullet I'm currently using inside the control itself.  None is presented in the collection of bullet types, and if chosen when a bulleted list is selected will "de-bullet" and de-list it.

In Word 2010, bullets are still on the applications menu. There is a submenu to open with right arrow where you can get into the bullet grid and tell it "none'>

Re: Have you experienced this problem before with your old machine?

I really don't think you have anything to worry about.  You'll need chkdsk to fix a file system error if you get one, I don't believer manufacturers' software is going to do that.  Even chkdsk's surface scan is read only, if it were writing then it would fix bad sectors on hard disk drives that are supposed to be locked out when read and written, and believe me, that never works.

          It's CTRL+SHIFT+F that brings up the standalone font dialog.  You can then tab to the size combo box, or hit ALT+S to shoot yourself straight to it.  Once you're in it you can either type the point size you want or use up/down arrow to move among the combo box's dropdown list values.

          Of course, you have to have selected the text you want to change the font size (or any other font setting) for first.

Word 2013 alters date

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Hi,

Using: Jaws 2019, W10 64 bit Office 2013

 

When an old document, one with a previous date, is loaded into Word 2013 the date is automatically changed to the current date. 

 

Where can the settings be found to stop this behaviour because I want to keep the previous date as a record of when the document was written?

 

Thanks

Tom

I have experienced this problem since this passed October. 
My computer is getting old and I have experienced a  problem.
Every time I turn my computer on from sleeping mode My speaker starting to act up. 
When Jaws speak's the speaker just crack and suddently it speaks again and the speaker make Jaws sounds like robot. 
I  don't know if you seasoned user experienced this problem before?
What should I do?
Do I need to send the machine back to the shop and get it fixed?
All answers are greatly appreciate it.
Best regards

Hello there:
 
In my previous posting on this thread, I stated that you should never use chkdsk on SSd drives. I wish to make a slight correction to that statement.
 
You can use chkdsk, without any switches,  in "Read Only" mode, on SSD drives, to have Windows check an SSD drive.
 
If Windows detects any errors on an SSD drive, you should use the manufacturers SSD utility program, to make repairs.
 
In general, I have found that manufacturers SSD utility programs are not generally accessible to those of us who use screen-readers, so, if you download one of these utility programs, you will more than likely need visual assistance
 
Is anyone on this list using third party software they could suggest, which we can use instead of Manufacturer's disk utility software.
 
Please let us know.
 
Sincerely:
 
Dave Durber

Hello there:
 
If you have any solid state drives connected to a computer system,  You must never use chkdsk or disk defragmenter on those drives.

Hi, I was about to say something that someone else already stated but maybe please don't forget to perform the basic things that help to keep your computer operating the best it can. disk cleanup, and disk defragmenter, also don't forget to if you have windows defender to perform a complete scan of your system to make sure that you don't have any viruses. some times, you even might want to make sure that you delete you search history as well.
