moderated Help with printing one page of multiple pages

Laura Richardson
 

Hello,

 

I have a multi-page document that I need to print just one page.  Example; I need to print just page 4 of the 10 page document.  I generally press control plus p and press enter which prints the entire 10 page document and I can’t figure out how to print just one page, not the entire document.

 

I’m using Jaws 18, HP laser jet printer, Word 2016 and Windows 10.  Could somebody please help?

 

Laura

Hi,

Simple search for skip. Insert +control +f. type in skip and hit enter. The
first skip will be found. Be sure it says skip add. Otherwise, do the search
as noted again. When you hear skip ad, hit enter and the said ad is done.
You can also continuously hit the b key and when yu hear skip ad, hit enter.
This will be easier but with so many buttons, you could be hitting this and
the ad may end before you find the correct button to skip the ad.

I find the button quick nav B works for me, but what also usually works is to do a quick Jaws Find for “skip”

Hi,

 

Recently I’ve been having trouble with finding the Skip Ads button in YouTube. Today, several minutes into an 18 minute ad and being unable to find the Skip Ads button, I cornered a sighted coworker who easily found what they described as a Skip Ads popup button that was over the Play button area. This never announced as I tabbed and arrowed through the YouTube screen.

 

Is there a way or ways to consistently find YouTube Skip Ads buttons?

 

Thanks in advance, Keith

Suggestion: Try an ad blocker or an ad-blocking browser such as brave.  Youtube doesn't have ads on my systems.

I know that several regulars there use Markdown, and with various screen readers, so someone's got to have a suggestion.

Hello list,

I am looking for a Markdown editor that works with JAWS. I am currently
using Jarte to write Markdown and Pandoc to convert it. I have tried a
couple of the Markdown editors for Windows, but the ones i have tried
don't seem to work well with JAWS. Does anyone know of an accessible
option other than Jarte or Notepad?

Also never forget that all of this is covered in detail in Help > Jaws Help Topics. In this case here is what is said about speech on demand:

 

Speech On Demand

Speech On Demand is a feature that allows you to limit the amount of JAWS speech you hear as you navigate windows and documents or perform other actions using hot keys. By default, when using Speech On Demand, JAWS only announces actions that are associated with a limited set of hot keys. In addition, mouse echo and typing echo are still available, which allows JAWS to read text that you point to with the mouse pointer and speak characters and words as you type. You can quickly toggle between Speech On Demand and full speech using a convenient layered command, or even make Speech On Demand the default speech mode when JAWS starts.

For JAWS users who rely heavily on Braille or for users of Fusion that can see well enough to use the screen for tracking focus, too much speech can be overwhelming while navigating using the keyboard and mouse. However, users still want to be able to use speech to read once they have moved to a location on the screen, or just checking a Window Title, column heading in a table or spread sheet, or even reading the time from the System tray. In both these situations, Speech On Demand can be very helpful. You will find that switching applications with ALT+TAB or using ARROW keys to move through a document are silenced. Speech is only triggered when using a limited set of reading commands such as speaking the current character, word, line, paragraph, or doing a Say All. You also have the option to completely turn off speech.

Layered commands to toggle Speech On Demand or Mute Speech:

  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by S to toggle the speech mode between Full Speech and either Speech On Demand (the default) or Mute Speech.
  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by SHIFT+S while Full Speech is disabled to toggle between Speech On Demand and Mute Speech.

By default, JAWS always returns to Full Speech when restarted after these keystrokes have been used. To make permanent changes to the default settings, do the following:

  1. Press INSERT+F2, and select Settings Center.
  2. If you want changes to only apply to a particular application, select it from the Application list. Otherwise, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default settings file.
  3. In the tree view, expand the Speech Options group.
  4. Press the SPACEBAR on Speech Mode to change the default choice between Less Speech or Full Speech. Full Speech is selected by default.
  5. Press the SPACEBAR on Less Speech Options to change the default choice between Mute Speech or Speech On Demand. Speech On Demand is selected by default.
  6. Expand the Speech On Demand Options group.
  7. If you do not want any reading hot keys to speak with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to clear the Allow Reading Commands check box. Reading commands are spoken by default.
  8. If JAWS Mouse Echo is enabled and you want to hear text as you move the mouse with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to select the Allow Mouse Echo checkbox. This checkbox is cleared by default.
  9. If JAWS Typing Echo is set to Characters, Words, or Characters and Words and you want to hear what you are typing with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to select the Allow Typing Echo check box. This checkbox is cleared by default.
  10. Choose OK to save your changes and close Settings Center.

Note: When set to Speech On Demand or Mute Speech, all sounds played by JAWS are also muted. This includes the sound heard when pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR to enter Layered Keys mode as well as the sound heard when completing an address in Outlook.

moderated Re: Excel rows and columns

 

Sieghard,

           Please send the sample spreadsheet to me via e-mail, as attachments get stripped (or at least they do on the web interface) by this Groups.io group.  I'll take a look and download JAWS so I have it in 40 minute mode.

           Also let me know whether it's column headings, row titles, or both that you're looking to have spoken as you traverse the table.  I do know that when I was last working with Excel and JAWS it will only read the column title once, when you land in that column, if you stay within it (move up/down) and the same was true of the row title (move left/right).

Hi Brian,

 

I attached a little sample spreadsheet I made. I thought I followed your steps to set it up so Jaws will read the column and row titles, but I can’t get it to work, what am I doing wrong?

Pardon my error, that last technique is the "when I only want it during this session" method with JAWS.   This is how to set them in the spreadsheet itself such that JAWS will recognize their existence and announce them whenever you open a specific spreadsheet:

Assigning a Title Row (Column Titles) and/or Title Column (Row Titles) in Excel

You can assign column and row titles in Excel. These are nice because they always work with Excel and are saved to the workbook. There's no risk of losing a setting in your screen reader.

To add column and row title names:

    1. Focus on the first cell in the row or column or at the first cell where the title row and title column intersect
    2. Open the Name dialog:

                                                               i.      Open the Formula ribbon (ALT-M)

                                                             ii.      Activate the “Define Name” command (M)

                                                           iii.      Within the drop-down list, activate “Define Name”

                                                           iv.      The “New Name” dialog opens

 

Focus is placed in the name field. Within the name field, you can name the focused cell or selected range of cells. In this case, we’re naming the column or row title:

    1. Name the cell using the following rules

                           i.  Start the range name with the label that tells Excel you’re creating a title range

        1. Title – This tells Excel the column and row that intersect at the active cell are a title row and column
        2. ColumnTitle – This tells Excel the focused column contains the titles for the rows within the range
        3. RowTitle – this tells Excel the focused row contains titles for the columns in the range

                            ii.      Add a name for the range

        1. Title_WidgetSales
        2. ColumnTitle_WidgetSales
        3. RowTitle_WidgetSales

                              iii.      Optional - Add the last cell in the range preceded by two periods

        1. Use this when you have multiple regions in a worksheet
        2. Title_WidgetSales..J25
        3. ColumTitle_WidgetSales..h32
        4. RowTitle_WidgetSales..r12
        5. Remember the cell address referenced is the last cell in the range for which you are creating titles

The next field in the dialog sets the scope for the name. this is a combo box. Use UP and DOWN ARROW to choose from between:

  • Workbook - the title Is unique and can’t be used elsewhere in a workbook
  • A Specific Worksheet - the name can be used elsewhere in a workbook

You can add a comment for the named cell or region, this is strictly for your personal reference and doesn’t affect the echo of the column or row title name

The last field references the cell name or range of selected cells you’re naming. You can leave this field alone.

Activate the OK button to save the name and close the dialog.

Save the workbook and the titles are permanently saved and will work on any computer.

If you have titles set to echo in JAWS, the titles will echo and you won’t lose the settings.

moderated Re: Excel rows and columns

 

How can I set this up in a workbook which has let’s say 31 sheets, one for each day of the month. Each sheet is set up identically and I would like to se this up on the first sheet and have it so Jaws reads row and column titles on each subsequent sheet. I tried this so many times and just can’t figure it out.

moderated Re: jaws quick / hot key

 

Also never forget that all of this is covered in detail in Help > Jaws Help Topics. In this case here is what is said about speech on demand:

 

Speech On Demand

Speech On Demand is a feature that allows you to limit the amount of JAWS speech you hear as you navigate windows and documents or perform other actions using hot keys. By default, when using Speech On Demand, JAWS only announces actions that are associated with a limited set of hot keys. In addition, mouse echo and typing echo are still available, which allows JAWS to read text that you point to with the mouse pointer and speak characters and words as you type. You can quickly toggle between Speech On Demand and full speech using a convenient layered command, or even make Speech On Demand the default speech mode when JAWS starts.

For JAWS users who rely heavily on Braille or for users of Fusion that can see well enough to use the screen for tracking focus, too much speech can be overwhelming while navigating using the keyboard and mouse. However, users still want to be able to use speech to read once they have moved to a location on the screen, or just checking a Window Title, column heading in a table or spread sheet, or even reading the time from the System tray. In both these situations, Speech On Demand can be very helpful. You will find that switching applications with ALT+TAB or using ARROW keys to move through a document are silenced. Speech is only triggered when using a limited set of reading commands such as speaking the current character, word, line, paragraph, or doing a Say All. You also have the option to completely turn off speech.

Layered commands to toggle Speech On Demand or Mute Speech:

  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by S to toggle the speech mode between Full Speech and either Speech On Demand (the default) or Mute Speech.
  • Press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by SHIFT+S while Full Speech is disabled to toggle between Speech On Demand and Mute Speech.

By default, JAWS always returns to Full Speech when restarted after these keystrokes have been used. To make permanent changes to the default settings, do the following:

  1. Press INSERT+F2, and select Settings Center.
  2. If you want changes to only apply to a particular application, select it from the Application list. Otherwise, press CTRL+SHIFT+D to load the default settings file.
  3. In the tree view, expand the Speech Options group.
  4. Press the SPACEBAR on Speech Mode to change the default choice between Less Speech or Full Speech. Full Speech is selected by default.
  5. Press the SPACEBAR on Less Speech Options to change the default choice between Mute Speech or Speech On Demand. Speech On Demand is selected by default.
  6. Expand the Speech On Demand Options group.
  7. If you do not want any reading hot keys to speak with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to clear the Allow Reading Commands check box. Reading commands are spoken by default.
  8. If JAWS Mouse Echo is enabled and you want to hear text as you move the mouse with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to select the Allow Mouse Echo checkbox. This checkbox is cleared by default.
  9. If JAWS Typing Echo is set to Characters, Words, or Characters and Words and you want to hear what you are typing with Speech On Demand active, use the SPACEBAR to select the Allow Typing Echo check box. This checkbox is cleared by default.
  10. Choose OK to save your changes and close Settings Center.

Note: When set to Speech On Demand or Mute Speech, all sounds played by JAWS are also muted. This includes the sound heard when pressing INSERT+SPACEBAR to enter Layered Keys mode as well as the sound heard when completing an address in Outlook.
