Re: Hi All!

 

If you are on an application in the start menu just right click on it and select “Pin to Start”.

I find the start menu in Windows 10 not very usefult to quickly get to the applications I use the most.

Much easier to pin them to the taskbar where you can use Windows Key + the number row from 1 to 0 as shortcuts.

For example, if you have Outlook as the first item on the very left of the taskbar, then Word, then Skype, press Windows Key+1 for Outlook, Windows Key+2 for Word, Windows Key+3 for Skype etc.

This allows you to pin 10 applications and I think most of us use maybe 6 or 8 applications the most.

Of course you can still put them on the desktop and assign shortcut keys to them or go to the actual file location of a shortcut, e.g. Notepad, and assign something like Alt+Control+N as a shortcut, then all you have to do is press Alt+Control+N from anywhere and Notepad opens.

Lastly using the Windows/Cortana search box by pressing the Windows Key and just typing the first couple of letters of an application often brings it up and then just press enter to launch, e.g. press Windows Key and type “Not” should cause Jaws to say “Notepad, desktop app”, now if you press enter Notepad launches.

jaws training in Indianapolis Indiana

Tom Coburn
 

does anyone know where I can get josh training in Indianapolis Indiana? Without going through VR? and not spending hundreds of dollars?

where I work at Lowes corporate, in their call center, Jaws is not allowed. Zoomtext is, but Jaws is not, which seems weird to me because they use the same engine now but they tell me it’s not compatible with their siebel. java websites or avaya one-x  call center soft phone software, so I am working with VR to find me another job, for some reason they won’t get me trained on Jaws,  or NVDA, they think I can just learn it on the job.  i’m like no, switching from a screen magnifier to a screen reader requires training I haven’t been through yet, which takes months to learn, not minutes like VR seems to think. It drives me crazy. 

I had thought about going to Bosma for that training. that’s what my eye doctors want me to do, but I also know there are other options, like salesforce One I’d really like to do, or there’s another place out of state a friend was telling me about where are you go to a whole series of Blind training for nine months where every student is blindfolded.  that to me sounds like better training than Basma, but VR doesn’t want to cover anything out of state like that, so I’m trying to find another option to be trained on using screen readers in general so I can stay employed rather I stay at this job or move to another.  i’d like to move to another word Jaws is allowed if I can get trained on Jaws.  The rest of total blame training I’m not really concerned about staying employed is top priority

thanks

Re: JAWS 2018 & the Signature Dialog in Outlook

 

Hi Brian,

 

Ask the person who has the problem to tab once past the edit box with the signature and then shift+tab back and see if that helps. Also, are you watching as he or she does this? Some people may thing the information is not there but they have to tab past all the stuff first like the font, bolt, underline and all that, the last thing before the actual edit field is “Hyperlink”.

No, I am not.  My subject says, clearly, JAWS 2018, as did the text of my original message and all follow ups by me.  Someone else introduced JAWS 16 into the mix and it is utterly irrelevant in this situation.

Both machines have fully licensed and activated versions of JAWS 2018 on them.  One is a Windows 7 box with Office 2013, the other a Windows 10 box with Office 2010.  Both have exactly the same issue with the signature edit box and with not announcing the shortcut key(s) for controls in the lower ribbon as you traverse it.

The latter is particularly maddening as there is no way for my students to learn what those shortcut keys are as things stand when they're rooting around in ribbons for a control they had not previously used much or at all but that they are now wanting to use frequently and want to access directly.

Re: word count in MS word document

 

The Jaws command Jaws Key+NumPad3 simply reads the status line and while this includes the number of pages and words, it does not give you the same detailed information you may want by going to Review > Wordcount with Alt+R followed by W as Brian already pointed out. I opened a Word document and wrote “This is a test” without the quotation marks of course. Pressing Jaws Key+NumPad3 says the following (I only included the first parts of what is spoken):

 

Page Number Page 1 of 1

Word Count 4 words

 

If I press Alt+R W I get this (you have to use the Jaws cursor to review the information):

 

Word Count

Statistics:

Pages 1

Words 4

Characters (no spaces) 12

Characters (with spaces) 15

Paragraphs 1

Lines 1

Include textboxes, footnotes and endnotes checkbox checked

Close

Re: word count in MS word document

Word count is on the status bar.  You can read the status bar with JAWSKey+page down.  You can also press F6 and tab through the items on the status bar. While focused on the status bar there, you can use the context menu to choose which items are and are not displayed on the status bar.

Re: JAWS 2018 & the Signature Dialog in Outlook

Brian,

Are you using Jaws 16?

Have you tried the beta of 2019?  Or, even the demo mode of 2018?

If the newer Jaws versions solve the problem, then it sounds like a compatibility issue with Jaws 16 and not something specific to your machine.

On the other hand, if the newer Jaws do not solve it, then perhaps it is one of those fun issues that are almost impossible to track down.

 

Just my 2 cents worth,

Richard

Do you have the Dell audio maneger installed?

Only other you may try is to uninstall the drivers and re install!

I’ve had no luck with updating drivers, in fact, it says no driver is needed or installed for the Realtek audio.

I’m not sure explaining this to Microsoft Accessibility will get me very far, but any suggestions left?
