Re: Jaws command read Outlook message number

Tom <tomcat509@...>
 

Hi Sieghard,

 

In your example below, the say line command gave the number of messages as 23 of 23 which could be incorrect.    

 

If I press either insert plus numpad 8 or insert tab in Outlook 13, Jaws says 23 of 23 but using shift tab reads 51 messages still available.    

 

I was curious why the first two above commands always showed as there being 23 messages although a number had been read. These commands may be correct when the total gets below 23.

If I understand it Paypal is the only way to pay for something on Ebay.  After having a bad experience with Paypal I no longer have a Paypal or Ebay account.

Don,

         I offer the following for your consideration and for the consideration of those in the same situation you are in and I was in, to a lesser extent, until very recently.

         As versions of Office get more and more removed from active support screen readers, and many other things, become less and less capable of interacting with it because they keep updating to keep up with Office and Windows as a whole as well.

         With recent changes in laws in the EU, it has become illegal for Microsoft to tie a single machine license truly to a single machine, but only to a single machine at any point in time.  This has resulted in a cottage industry of individuals buying up computers that are being deaccessioned by businesses, government offices, etc., and extracting the license keys for the MS-Office that was installed on each of them, resetting them, then reselling them.  I have recently updated 4 of my computers to Office 2015 Pro Plus for less than $10 per machine, all purchased from eBay from sellers that have thousands of sales and very high satisfaction ratings.

          It is well worth considering updating your Office suite to a much more recent version, as the difficulties you are encountering are only going to become more frequent and, eventually, will not be able to be solved.

It was through Cristóbal that I first learned of the availability of cheap and completely legal "recycled" MS Office licenses via eBay (thanks much!!).

He's also done a good job at summing up why keeping antique software, even if you love it, becomes an exercise in endless frustration.  I can't imagine a pre-ribbons version of Office anymore, as the entire Windows ecosystem went to ribbons more than a decade ago.

The only difference with Jaws+Tab is that is says “List box” before it starts speaking your name, the subject and all that.

Under Outlook 2013, all I get when pressing insert numpad page down is Jaws saying something about filter applied.  Pressing insert Tab does give the number of the current message as well as the total number of messages.  Maybe Outlook 13 works differently from version 16.

Hi all,

 

I’ve found another place where JAWS crashes hard in Word.  Remember the mailing labels thing?  Here’s another one.

 

In Word, press Control+H to get into Find And Replace, then tab to the More button and hit space bar on it.  Now tab around a few times and JAWS will say Generic MSAA Container and crash hard again.

 

Thank goodnesss for NVDA.

 

Let’s hope it gets fixed in the next update.

 

All the best

Hello everyone. Several years ago, work was done to make Quickbooks
accessible with JAWS. Does anyone have contact information about
accessibility with Quickbooks and JAWS?

Thanks so much.

Why not just try downloading the upgrade and seeing if it works.  Then there's your answer. 

can i use quickbooks for keeping records of students?

Hi list members, I'd like to know if I can use quickbooks for music students making payments, whether it is once a month or four times a month?

Re: Jaws command read Outlook message number

 

It does for me using Office 2016 via Office 365, here is the Jaws Speech History for a say line on your message:

In outlook 2016, Say Line works, but doesn’t give you the number of messages or the number of the message you’re on.

 

All the best

This works for Outlook 13 and so will use this method in future.

In Ourtlook for me it does almost the same, a say line also speaks the number of the message I am on, just now when I did a say line it read your message, sender, subject etc. and then at the end it said “13 of 15”.

The only difference with Jaws+Tab is that is says “List box” before it starts speaking your name, the subject and all that.

Hi,

 

JAWS+Tab just does effectively a Say Line for me.

Make sure your Window is maximized, I am using OUtlook 2016 and both Jaws Key+Tab and Jaws Key+Page Down work and say what they are supposed to say.

Thanks for your reply Steve.

 

Under Outlook 2013, all I get when pressing insert numpad page down is Jaws saying something about filter applied.  Pressing insert Tab does give the number of the current message as well as the total number of messages.  Maybe Outlook 13 works differently from version 16.

Try reading the status bar, with JAWS Key+Page Down on the number pad.

Hi,

Using: Latest Jaws 2018, W10 Home 64 bit, Outlook 13

 

Is there a Jaws  command which will read  the current message number and or the total number of messages  being displayed in the Outlook 2013 inbox?

 

Thanks

Re: Another Word 2016 crash with JAWS

Hi all,

 

I’ve found another place where JAWS crashes hard in Word.  Remember the mailing labels thing?  Here’s another one.

 

In Word, press Control+H to get into Find And Replace, then tab to the More button and hit space bar on it.  Now tab around a few times and JAWS will say Generic MSAA Container and crash hard again.

 

Thank goodnesss for NVDA.

 

Let’s hope it gets fixed in the next update.

 

All the best

 

Steve

Re: HP Envy Laptop, disabling Mouse/touch pad

 

Don,

        You're definitely correct and that's important to state.  I just mentioned "the cardboard method" as some will not want to purchase a wireless mouse and/or live in houses with spouses and kids who either assist them fairly routinely and/or who share a machine with other members of the household.

         If you're using "the dongle method" all anyone using the machine has to do is pull the dongle.  I also wonder if that particular setting is linked to an individual user's working environment and if they might not even need to do that when they log in as themselves.  I'll have to test that out when I have time.

Hi, Ketan. Turab would be using the office ID, not his own ID.

Turab,

You will use your ID and not anyone else's ID so if it is only you who
is using the said ID then of course there should not be any problem.

Hi all,
Have been using Basic HTML view all this while in my Gmail account.
However, at the firm I recently joined, the office id has a Standard view.
Wish to know the key commands as the table and checkbox shortcuts are
not working properly.
Thanking you

Re: Use of standard view in Gmail

I don't use Standard View with Gmail, so I haven't needed to turn on the shortcuts.

1. First turn off the Virtual Cursor with INSERT plus Z.
2. Press Question Mark (SHIFT plus /) to obtain a list of shortcuts.
3. TAB to Enable, and press ENTER.
4. Your shortcuts should now be enabled.

Well, that's precisely my concern. As sighted people don't quite like
the Basic HTML view.
Hence, was wondering of some basic shortcuts to navigate in Standard view.

Hi Shankar,
Thanks a lot for your suggestions.
Will follow the steps. I have the following additional concerns.
1. If I change the view in my system, will the view change for others as
well?
2. Are the features in Basic HTML view lesser as compared to Standard
View?

Hi, if your office uses gmail for the Communication, do the following.
1. login with the gmail using your credentials.
2. once you login, the screen reader may announce loading gmail….
3. press letter b key.
4. the screen reader should announce load basic html button, now just
activate the button by pressing space or enter key.
5. now you can view your gmail with basic html.


if you want to set this as default view, go to the links list and
press letter s until your screen reader says set as default view, and
activate the link.
