Re: reading markers

Matthew Horspool
 

Hi Ed,

This is a Word option:

1.       Press ALT+F, then T for Word Options.

2.       In the tree view, press D for Display.

3.       TAB to the group of controls labelled "Always show these formatting marks on the screen". Make sure all the checkboxes in that group are unchecked, unless you particularly want certain markers shown.

4.       Press ENTER.

In certain versions of Office, there is also a keystroke to toggle on and off all formatting marks, but I can't remember what it is. Memory says it is CTRL+SHIFT+8, but maybe it's 9 or 7 or 6. Feel free to experiment.

Hope this helps,

Matthew

I have apparently done something that is causing JAWS to read markers in my Word documents.  for example, it now says “space marker” between words and “paragraph marker” between paragraphs.

How do I change it back to not saying these things and what did I do to make the change?

Hi Ed,

 

Try pressing Control + shift + 8. That is a toggle. By the way, it is the 8 on the number row.

 

Good luck!

How do I get Outlook 2016 to stop reading a message's subject line when I open it?

Richard B. McDonald
 

Hi!

 

In JFW 15 with Outlook 2007, I use to be able to have an opened message begin automatically start reading but not its subject line, 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


Re: JAWS Won't Read Safeway Receipt

 

Sorry, but you didn't say it was an email, I assumed it was an attached PDF.

Anyhow, you can still recognize the current screen or window although this may include other stuff you may not want. The keys for doing OCR on the screen is Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and S, for recognizing the current Window it is Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and W.

If it isn't secret, could you forward one of the Safeway receipt emails to me, I don't mind taking a look in case I can suggest anything else.

If you don't want to forward it to the list you can send it to sieghard@...

Sieghard

Some hot keys in the keyboard manager have the user pressed a modifier key plus the space bar then a letter. Is it possible for you to change these hot keys? If so, how do you assign that kind of a hockey without having jaws just recognize two buttons you push? For example Whenever I try to assign a function to the hot key shift plus space bar plus the letter k, jaws only records shift and the space bar. But, I want to assign a function to shift plus the space bar than the press of a letter. I think these are called double layer hot keys. But I’m not sure. Thank you for anyone who can help

Re: Insert page down in Word 2016 and JAWS

Richard Turner
 

Dean's answer was the one that worked, temporarily, but at work, it appears to be a permissions issue.
I do not have full administrator rights on the computer, so certain things get messed up.
If I have the administrator log in, then Word behaves perfectly fine.
But, when I am logged in as me, it doesn't behave.
But, yes, everything is maximized.
So, I will see if they can give me some permissions in my documents folder to resolve this. It isn't that big of a deal, but when formatting documents, it is necessary to know exactly where you are.
Thanks,
Richard

Subject: Loosing Shortcuts For Microsoft Word And Excel In Office 365

 

Hello, everyone.

 

Recently, I find that I am constantly loosing shortcuts to Microsoft Word and Excel in Office 365.

 

I invoke the shortcuts in the usual way by accessing properties in the given program, but after several days, they simply disappear.

 

I suspect this might have something to do with Office 365 updates, but can’t be sure.

 

Has anyone else experienced this issue?  And, if so, do you have a fix?

 

I’m using Windows 7 and Jaws 2018 here.

Yes,

I'm visually impaired. Without a Screen Reader I can't work.

Ps
I was sure to have already answered, maybe I didn't press the "reply" button.

Hi Siegard,

I'm visually impaired, without a Screen Reader I cannot work.
So the answer is "yes", I work as stenographer because there tools which make accessible the workflow.

Thanks, Sieghard.

 

I’ll certainly use this strategy if I can’t resolve the problem otherwise.

Hi Tom,

 

Not sure why this is happening, but you could try to simply put the shortcuts in the taskbar, in Windows 7 as well as Windows 10 you can access any application in the taskbar by pressing the Windows Key + the number corresponding to the application's position in the taskbar.

For example, if you have the following applications in your taskbar from left to write:

Google Chrome, Outlook, Excel, Word, Skype and Notepad

press the following keyboard shortcuts:

Windows Key + 1 for Google Chrome

Windows Key + 2 for Outlook

Windows Key + 3 for Excel

Windows Key + 4 for Word

Windows Key + 5 for Skype

Windows Key + 6 for Notepad

 

You can put up to 10 applications there and use 1 through 0 together with the Windows Key to access them, also, if you press Windows Key + Alt + 3 which in my example is for Excel you are bringing up the jumplist for the application and you can then arrow up or down to see the most recently used files.

 

Regards,

Sieghard
