I did not get a good feeling with the correspondence I received. The office is based in the U K, yet the times of the correspondence did not jive with U K time, for that matter U S either. If a office opens at 9 AM, why would one get correspondence at 5 AM?  Even allowing for time zones, that is still before the business opens. JMT.

Subject: [Leasey] Potential Training Course: Microsoft PowerPoint with JAWS for Windows.

 

The following message is from Brian Hartgen and was posted to the Leasey mailing list.

 





Several weeks ago, we were asked if a training course could be created to teach people how to use Microsoft PowerPoint with JAWS. People not only wanted to learn how to prepare visually appealing PowerPoint presentations, (including adding graphical images), but also how to add music or sound to them, run the presentations as slide shows and add or review Speakers Notes.

 

This training course has now been researched and it is possible this could be produced in January of 2019. Teaching this subject however is very high risk in a number of areas.

 

As blind people managing our small company, we will need to ensure that visual assistance is obtained so as to include visually appealing graphics of the required dimensions. But most importantly, it is our view that the support currently provided in terms of screen-reading with PowerPoint from Office 365 is simply not sufficient for what we need to do. Conveying this subject in easy to understand terms was always going to be tricky, but to do so when the access you will receive in this area has shortcomings is even more problematic.

 

A basic example would be accessing the Speakers Notes. These are notes or reminders to you, the person delivering the presentation, as to what you can say above and beyond what is stated in the slide the audience is viewing. There used to be a keystroke which would allow focus to be set to that area of the screen. This is no longer possible. Moreover, if you are using a Braille display, how are you going to read those notes without disturbing visual focus away from the application? A mechanism for listening to those notes also needs to be found. There are also a large number of other inaccessible areas which need some attention.

 

To that end, as with all our training courses, we would need please a commitment from anyone interested to make the project viable. This would allow for the delivery of the training course together with bringing the existing JAWS support up-to-date.

We have had a small number of people expressing an interest in this subject so far, but whether it goes ahead really does boil down to what kind of commitment we do receive.

 

The training course would be delivered over a four-hour period in January of 2019. It would include details of many aspects of creating presentations in an accessible way, identifying (as far as possible) whether the presentations were visually acceptable, navigating through slides, working with visual themes, using tables and bulleted lists, editing presentations, delivering your presentation to an audience, and more. A full course outline would be presented if the training course goes ahead.

 

If you would like to purchase this training course, please write to brian@.... We will then send to you an invoice for payment. Assuming we have enough committed people to make the course viable, then we will present the details formally on our website with a full course outline. The cost would be £50 which is currently $62. We would ideally need to hear from you by 7 December 2018 because that will give sufficient time for the JAWS scripting work to go ahead prior to the commencement of the training course in 2019.

 

If we do not receive a sufficient response, unfortunately we cannot take this project further because there are many hours of work ahead even before a training course of this magnitude can start to be prepared.

 

We very much look forward to hearing from anyone interested in what could be an interesting venture.

Re: Tables in word

Richard Turner
 

I found one way while looking for the option on the ribbons.

Hit alt+q to get into the “tell me what you want to do” screen, and type convert table to text and hit enter.

You will be in the feature to separate the text with tabs or comma, etc.  Make your selection and tab to OK and hit enter.

You now have just the text.

Since it is one column, I am not sure what selection in those options you want, but give it a try.  Just don’t save the document until you are sure you have what you want.

Office 365 requires different shortcuts than the regular office programs. Check out the free webinar on the JAWS resources page.
1. Go to the JAWS screen, insert+j
2. Press alt+h (help)
3. press r (resources)
4. Press w (free webinars)
5. press enter.

The office 365 webinar will tell you more than you want to know.

You could try a couple of methods.  You could highlight the text once you have it copied to your word document, and press Control plus Shift plus N to remove the formatting.  Another way would be to open notepad, and copy the selected text there first.  Then copy it over to your Word document.  I know this is an extra step or two, but it might work better.  Hope this helps.

I have been using Microsoft Office 365 for a couple of years now and it works great with Jaws.  I personally am using Jaws 2018 as I find some things in Jaws 2019 to not work well on my machine that I do not need to detail here since I’ve mentioned them in other posts.

Some improvements were made in Jaws 2019 that work better with Office 365.

through the process of importing bookmarks from firefox and internet
explorer and that seemed to go okay, but I don't see all my bookmarks.
Neither can I figure out how to easily access the ones I do see.

Everything I found through googling says to click on this and click on

WARNING! A JAWS repair may delete all your user settings. Therefore, I would advise the following prior to a repair:

Hi Robin,

Interestingly, JAWS has (or had) a driver for DECtalk ACCESS32, but I now can't find a version of DEC ACCESS that works with that driver. I'm with you, though – I used DEC ACCESS with JAWS for years and would much prefer it over Eloquence. It hadn't even occurred to me until you said something that, of course, Vispero will have all the old GW licenses and a version of DEC ACCESS that works with Windows 10 thanks to Window-Eyes, so actually it probably wouldn't be very difficult for them to get something going.

Please can I encourage you and everyone else who would like DEC ACCESS in JAWS to email suggestions@... and make the case clear? I will also do this.

Thanks,

I use Nathan in Vocalizer.  There’s just something in the Eloquenc voices that bothers my ears and makes it hard for me to understand them.  However, I do find that Vocalizer has some odd pronunciations compared to what I was used to with Dec Access in Window Eyes.  I am really surprised at how many edits to the pronunciation dictionary I have had to make to normal words that are said oddly. 

 

Oh, and I like the advice to change the JAWS cursor voice to something else so it’s really obvious when I am using the PC cursor versus the JAWS cursor.

just the message body. I don’t need the subject line re-read
because I already know it from the message’s preview in Outlook’s
list box as I scroll down my inbox. Now, with JFW 2019 and Outlook
2016 the message’s subject line reads after I open it as JFW begins
to read the message’s body. How can I stop the message’s subject line from reading?

Thanks,
Richard

I haven’t yet, but I can confirm it is a bug.  Option 1 in Matthew’s message is now simply ignored.

 

All the best

Just checked my settings and they are as suggested and behavior persists. This has been true through all 3 beta versions as well as final release. Has anyone reported to Vispero?

Matthew, this is a different Richard,

I’m using Jaws 2019, Windows 10 home 1809, I have Office 365.

In Outlook, following your steps with the settings, the reading behavior does not change.

I still hear the subject and message type read after hitting enter on the Email.  And, it won’t automatically read…

The message type is uncheck, yet, I hear each time if the Email is HTML, plain text, etc.

I’m off to work, where I have Jaws 2018 and Windows 7 and outlook 2016 so I will check there.

Hi James,

Press JAWSKey+V for Quick Settings, and move to and open "Reading Options". In there, adjust the following:

  1. Uncheck "Message Header Field With Message Announcement"
  2. Check "Messages Automatically Read"

Then ENTER to close the dialog.

HTH,

Matthew

Hi Mathew,

 

Nice if it worked in JAWS 2019 though, it’s a bug.  It ignores option 1 and reads it anyway.

 

All the best
